Do you like vocal groups? I do. It is nice to hear and understand arrangements made for voices and this group excels on this kind of thing. O Quarteto recorded only three albums, two are available here at Loronix, while the third, released in 1969, is totally unknown to my ears. This is a reposting with several improvements, including the FLAC files and high quality front and back cover scans. I will keep my original writing with a few and cosmetic adaptations.

Thanks once again for the successful funding raising campaign we made in just three days. Stay tuned for new features.

Hello, good evening! I feel great today. I think it was a snack that made me feel bad yesterday, nothing better than 12 hours of continuous sleeping to get yourself fixed. Since I feel good, let’s have a great start today with a record that I like a lot, taking advantage of the last records picturing Bossa Nova 10, 29, 30 years after. Let’s see what we have here.

This is O Quarteto – Antologia da Bossa Nova 20 Anos Depois (1977), for Philips. You probably remember the first O Quarteto LP released at Loronix, but if you don’t, O Quarteto is a vocal group that released only two self-titled albums in the late 60’s, in spite of the active participation they had on several Festivais da Cancao. Antologia da Bossa Nova 20 Anos Depois was released with an interval of 9 years between the second LP. I do not have available info of the reasons they do not made albums, since they are a great vocal group that is always backed up by renowned musicians, as you can check bellow at personnel listing. Tracks include:




Paulinho Palarico Correa

Walter Gozzo

Carlos Alberto de Lima Vianna

Hermes Antonio Dos Reis

Cesar Camargo´s seventies arrangements usually inspire me…

o interessante nesse disco é que foi gravado todo o vocal antes (pelo menos uns 4 quartetos, com vocais de apoio, contracantos e solos) com um clique ou um guia de ritmo qualquer e só depois o césar colocou os pianos e teclados, junto com a batera. Trabalho inverso, mas muito bem feito!

Thank you for this amazing post. I had never heard this group before and have been listening to it non-stop since finding it here. The arrangements on this LP are totally nuts.

Dear Zeca, I’m very disappointed.😉

I was so happy… I was sure to have at least one album you don’t have, an old brazilian LP from a group named “O Quarteto”, a Bossa Nova anthology. I was already searching it in my collection, ready to send it to you as a humble gift, a small thank compared to what you offer to us.

But before, I have googled the web, in order to see what is indicated about this group and this album (and a possible re-edition in CD):
– I typed “Quarteto” & “20 anos depois”
– pressed button “Search”
– … and here I am, return at Loronix!

Is there any brazilian disk that can escape you? I despair to be ever able to pay my debt with brazilian music as money…

I have a few other ideas, but now, big thanks for this original and interesting disk: my record-player is old, head must be changed and I can’t find easily what’s needed: I have hundreds of old LPs and am unable to listen to them. I can now hear again this LP with pleasure (and with the best quality).

Hat off, Mr. Zeca!

Hey Franck,

I’m in the middle of my work, but I could not resist to drop a line to say that Brazilian music has tons of wonderful albums that are not listed at Loronix.

Thanks once again!

Kind Regards,
