We lost today another very important Brazilian musician, J.T. Meirelles, leader of the anthological Meirelles e Os Copa 5 one of the first Samba Jazz groups from the 60’s.
J.T. Meirelles was a gifted saxophonist, flutist and arranger and this is Loronix tribute to one of the fathers of Samba Jazz, Meirelles first album with Os Copa 5, O Som, released in 1964 by Philips, featuring J.T. Meirelles (tenor sax, flute), Pedro Paulo (trumpet), Luiz Carlos Vinhas (piano), Manoel Gusmao (bass) and Dom Um Romao (drums).
I am very sad to report the passing of two important musicians in such a short space of time.
O referido disco pode ser buscado no 300 Discos.
