Moacir Santos - Opus3 Nº 1

Hello, good evening! Perhaps, good morning! I do not know. I am writing this text without any aid of the Internet, which according to the service provider will only be back in 36 hours due a broken fiber optic cable somewhere close to my place. When living in Copacabana, these things do not happen, or when it happens, were immediately corrected. It is quite different to write about such important musician and album with no Internet to help me. Anyway, everything you are reading is coming by the old fashioned way where knowledge was the one available where your hands or your eyes reach. Let’s see.

This is Moacir Santos – Opus 3 NO. 1 (1968), for Discovery (USA), kindly provided in FLAC by my new friend MCR (which is only a temporary nickname before I get his accordance of a name). Thanks MRC, Opus 3 NO. 1 is a missing piece at Moacir Santos discography available at Loronix and if I’m not wrong, it was recorded in 1968, and issued on in 1978, ten years before the studio sessions. This is Moacir Santos playing his own creations and singing, backed by renowned musicians, which includes an amazing participation of the legendary Chaim Lewak at the piano, as available on personnel listing, also provided by MCR. Tracks include:


Moacir Santos
(arrangements, baritone sax, voice)
Don Menza
(tenor sax)
Joe Pass
Clare Fischer
Ray Pizzi
(alt sax)
Chaim Lewak
Oscar Brashear
John Heard, Bob Saraiva

(electric piano)
Frank Rosolino
Bill Hood
Jerry Redmond
Joao Donato
Frank Ponti, Alicia Rodrigues

Wow, thanks a lot!
There’s only very few Brazilian albums i treasure as much as Santos’ “Coisas”. And i always thought his next albums were those he recorded for Blue Note in the early 70s. Stellar list of sideman, too!

Thanks anyway

Sorry, the back cover is missing. Who knows someone share the back cover with us?

Kind Regards,

Zeca, não quero ser chato, mas rola de postar o “Brasileiríssimas” e o “Comigo é assim” do Emílio Santiago? Não achei de jeito nenhum o primeiro, e o segundo, só em qualidade muito ruim.

Grande abraço.

Eu não tenho nenhum dos dois discos, que você mencionou. Se não estiverem em catálogo, serão candidatos a partir do momento que pudermos contar com uma boa cópia disponível ou o LP original.

Abraços, zeca

Yet another great Moacir Santos album. He is not totally forgotten in the USA, as there are still musicians who worked with him during his time here. Some of them are making a tribute album (the conga player is a friend of our percussionist, and he is a great player) led by Mark Levine, a longtime pianist and teacher in the San Francisco area.
