Publicado em: Sunday, November 16, 2008 by zecalouro
Hello, good evening! This is the end of our short series of orchestra albums, which began a few days ago with Maestro Severino Filho and being closed here by the legendary Orquestra Tabajara, certainly the oldest orchestra in activity in Brazil and perhaps one of the oldest in activity around the world. Orchestra Tabajara was created in 1933, being commanded by Maestro Severino Araujo since 1938. By the way, 2008 landmarks 70 years of Maestro Severino Araujo in front of Orquestra Tabajara.
I would like to thank Carlos Watkins (at comment section) and Marco Antonio Russi (at my personal email) for the identification of Jayme Araujo de Oliveira (Teddy Garner) as Maestro Severino Araujo’s brother. This post is dedicated to these good friends. Now I can finish my article with the information needed about this musician. Let’s see.
This is Severino Araujo e Sua Orquestra Tabajara (1956), for Continental, released in the 10-inch size, but with a running time of 31 minutes, such like a regular 12-inch LP. Maestro Severino Araujo and Orquestra Tabajara deliver instrumental renditions of Brazilian standards and music written by Severino Araujo, which are the ones that I like most, especially 02 – Melodia em Tres Ritmos, featuring a very well played sax and some “batucadas”. Continental did not credit Orquestra Tabajara musicians, but I could find information about the orchestra members around that years, with several renowned musicians, including K-Ximbinho, Del Loro, Geraldo Medeiros, Ze Bodega, among others.
