Alaíde Costa, Zezé Gonzaga, Zé Luiz Mazziotti & Sidney Miller - Sidney Miller

Hello, good evening! I want to show today a requested artist, very important, but unfortunately somewhat forgotten. Not a musician this time, but a gifted composer, with songs recorded by almost all major Brazilian music artists, which recorded only three albums, and sadly left this world too soon, at 35 years of age. Sidney Miller. Let’s see.

This is Sidney Miller (1983), for Funarte, a tribute, with the participation of Alaide Costa, Zeze Gonzaga, Ze Luiz Mazziotti and Sidney Miller performing two tracks, including A Viola e O Violeiro with Nara Leao. This is a very nice record with ten Sidney Miller compositions that you cannot miss. Zeze Gonzaga and Ze Luiz Mazziotti deliver very good interpretation of well-known Sidney Miller tunes. Tracks include:

01 – Maria Joana – Alô Ô Fevereiro (Sidney Miller) with Zezé Gonzaga / Zé Luis Mazziotti
02 – Nós os Foliões (Sidney Miller) with Zé Luis Mazziotti
03 – Alma Minha (Sidney Miller) with Zezé Gonzaga
04 – Casinha do Arraial (Sidney Miller) with Zé Luis Mazziotti
05 – O Circo (Sidney Miller) with Sidney Miller
06 – Menina da Agulha (Sidney Miller) with Zé Luis Mazziotti / Alaíde Costa
07 – Paisagem Sobre Valsa (Sidney Miller) with Alaíde Costa
08 – O Bonde (Sidney Miller) with Zé Luis Mazziotti
09 – Pois É Pra Quê (Sidney Miller) with Zé Luis Mazziotti / Alaíde Costa / Zezé Gonzaga
10 – A Estrada e o Violeiro (Sidney Miller) with Nara Leão

Hello, good evening! I spent a time today looking on Loronix archives planning next month, fully dedicated on bring them back. We have a really huge collection with several nice albums, some of them bring nice memories from the days they were posted for the first time and this is an album that I never consider a candidate for an upgrade. It is probably one of the first conversions I made at Loronix and I got very pleased to show it in December 2006. Let’s see.

This is Alaide Costa & Oscar Castro Neves – Alaide Costa & Oscar Castro Neves (1973), for Odeon, which is not an Alaide Costa career LP with the participation of Oscar Castro Neves, they share the role of main performers here, and the results are outstanding. Oscar Castro Neves delivers above of the average arrangements and Alaide Costa seems to be totally involved in the session, probably, the best album she ever recorded, even better than her 1965 release with the participation of Jongo Trio. If you are new to this record, consider taking it and if you already know the first issue, take it, everything was upgraded. Tracks include:

01 – Obrigada Meu Bem (Aloysio de Oliveira / Silvinha Telles)
02 – Sabe Você (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Só Não Vem Você (Carlos Lyra / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
04 – Caminhos (Luis Jorge / Regina Werneck)
05 – Noturno (Em Tempo de Samba) (Custódio Mesquita / Evaldo Ruy)
06 – Companheira da Manhã (Oscar Castro Neves / Regina Werneck)
07 – Cala Meu Amor (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – Outono (Billy Blanco)
09 – Murmúrios (João Pinto / Regina Célia)
10 – Retrato Em Branco e Preto (Tom Jobim / Chico Buarque)
11 – Amigo Amado (Alaíde Costa / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – A Dama de Vermelho (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / Pedro Caetano)

Alaide Costa - Alaide Costa (1965)

Alaide Costa is celebrating her birthday today, December 08 and this is Loronix homage to this very important Brazilian singer. Thanks to several friends who sent emails remembering Alaide Costa’s birthday, including an anonymous friend that left a message on our last Alaide Costa post, Alaide Costa & Oscar Castro Neves (1973). Actually, I was thinking about reposting this album, it is an essential and was my first vinyl transfer. I think there is a lot to improve there. Anyway, better making later this month, since we have this one, which is also a real treat. Let’s see.

Hello, good evening! Teatro Paramount in Sao Paulo is part of Bossa Nova history. In the early 60’s, Walter Silva – also known as Pica-Pau, produced a series of concerts featuring renowned Brazilian artists that were very successful. Most of these performances were recorded and later released by RGE on 30 Anos de Bossa Nova series, featuring ten albums with five of these concerts produced by Walter Silva. Os Grandes Sucessos do Paramount is not a live recording of a given day, but a compilation organized by Walter Silva featuring the best moments of those days. Let’s see.

This is Os Grandes Sucessos do Paramount (1965), for RGE, with recordings from Teatro Paramount Bossa Nova concerts from 1964 and 1965. Two of these five albums with Teatro Paramount sessions are already available at Loronix, O Fino da Bossa (1964) and A Bossa no Paramount (1965), being this one my favorite. Alayde Costa and Titulares do Ritmo opens the record with an “a capella” performance of Onde Esta Voce (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini) that worth the entire album. The remaining performers are listed bellow, with highlights to Walter Santos, Oscar Castro Neves Noneto, Zimbo Trio, Bossa Jazz Trio… Better stop to do not revel complete performers listing.

Publicado em: Tuesday, October 03, 2006 by zecalouro

Why should they let an album like this one goes out-of-print? A truly jewel from the mid 70’s by Alaide Costa, one of the greatest Brazilian divas. Since the beginning, I had that felling that I was hearing something really out of the standard from a singer solo LP.

In spite of the great Alaide Costa performance and interpretation, the difference here is on the world-class team of Brazilian jazzman assembled to the set, as follows:

Milton Nascimento and Mariozinho Rocha

Arrangements and Conduction
Joao Donato

Joao Donato
Robertinho Silva
Nelson Angelo
Toninho Horta
(electric guitar)
Ivan Lins
(piano on track Corpos)
Joao Donato, Novelli, Nelson Angelo and Fernando Leporace
(backing vocals)

Sorry, almost forgot the tracks, here we go:

01 – Pai Grande (Milton Nascimento)
02 – O Samba Que Eu Lhe Fiz (Sueli Costa)
03 – Coração (Nelson Ângelo / Ronaldo Bastos)
04 – Catavento (Milton Nascimento)
05 – Quem Sou Eu (Johnny Alf)
06 – Sonho e Fantasia (João Donato / Lysias Ênio)
07 – Corpos (Ivan Lins / Vitor Martins)
08 – Pé Sem Cabeça (Danilo Caymmi / Ana Borba)
09 – Tomara (Novelli / Paulo César Pinheiro / Maurício Tapajós)
10 – Viver de Amor (Toninho Horta / Ronaldo Bastos)
11 – Tempo Calado (Alaíde Costa / Paulo Alberto Ventura)

Alaide Costa – Gosto de Voce (1959) – Debut LP

Link original: Alaide Costa – Gosto de Voce (1959) – Debut LP
Publicado em: Wednesday, July 26, 2006 by zecalouro

Nice one now, nothing can go wrong with the debut LP of the Brazilian Diva Alaide Costa, Gosto de Voce (1959). Alaide is a real gifted singer that has a unique voice and interpretation.

Different from Elizeth Cardoso and Angela Maria, Alaide started his career together with the Bossa Nova age. Alaide had a great sponsor at the beginning, guess who? Easy: Joao Gilberto. Joao invited Alaide to engage the initial meeting and rehearsals with that group that created Bossa Nova. Unfortunately, Alaide did not keep the pace with the movement; for instance, she was not invited to take part on the legendary first Bossa Nova US concert at Carnegie Hall.

Another Brazilian Diva: Alaide Costa with the 1961 LP – Joia Moderna, never released on CD and currently out of print.

There is an amazing history about this LP, almost made by accident when Alaide was looking for a recording studio to make some rehearsals. She was a renowned artist in early 60’s and could bring together to these sessions Baden Powell, Oscar Castro Neves, Copinha and Macacheira.

Probably, when RCA noticed that a crew like that was inside its studios, the rehearsal was obviously transformed in this nice LP.

The arrangements are from Baden Powell, his first arrangement experience. Two Oscar brothers were also at the sessions, Iko on bass and Leo on drums.
