A couple of weeks ago we released an album of a Brazilian instrumental jazz fusion band recorded in Montreux Jazz Festival, by that time, I though that A Cor do Som was retired since their last album released in 1986, but I heard they are back to business and had already recorded a DVD. Many friends in Brazil of my generation have very good memories of this band and I think we will not go wrong with them to start today. This cover is all about the new Loronix design with a logo full of colors. Let’s see.

This is A Cor do Som – Transe Total (1980), for WEA. Perhaps the most successful album released by A Cor do Som, featuring tracks with lyrics and some instrumental themes, which are the ones that I like most. The tracks with lyrics were blockbusters in 1980 and my highlights go to O Palco, the definitive rendition of this Gilberto Gil song, Zanzibar and Semente do Amor. Transe Total has the participation of Nivaldo Ornellas, Oswaldinho do Acordeon, Mauro Senise, Jorginho among many other special guests. Tracks include:

Hello, Good Evening! I want to start the day with something new and really unique, which is the legendary and pioneer instrumental / vocal band A Cor do Som. How many friends who live outside Brazil had the chance to hear or even know the existence of this group? Probably less than a half by this parrot estimates, actually, these guys made wonderful things and I think they deserve much more recognition.

Some friends in Brazil would say they do not belong to Loronix, but I think they are even a missing piece. A Cor do Som blends several different styles with the strength of never loosing focus on Brazilian music. They mix jazz, rock, progressive, frevo, samba, baiao, MPB and are great performers as instrumental or vocal group. I’m showing A Cor do Som album that has only instrumental tracks and I’m sure that later we will be amazed when hearing them singing as a vocal group.

This is A Cor do Som – Ao Vivo, no Montreux Internacional Jazz Festival (1979), for Warner, featuring the original formation with Mu (keyboards), Dadi (bass), Armandinho (guitarra baiana), Aroldo (guitarra baiana), Gustavo (drums) and Ary (percussion). Armandinho is the same renowned guitarist, inventor of the guitarra baiana, an electrified version of cavaquinho. Someone said this week that every Montreux Festival cut is worth checking. This one really rocks. Tracks include:
