Mr. E. was working hard in the background, just waiting for our celebration ending to pick another nice contribution to Loronixers. Mr. E. is addressing a request made by Alexandre Coimbra that took CBox users surprised with the information of a pretty unknown Astrud Gilberto album. Thanks Mr. E. for another nice collaboration, I had no hope to make this post; nobody had idea of this LP.
This is Astrud Gilberto – September 17, 1969 (1969), for Verve. The last Astrud Gilberto release at Loronix Astrud Gilberto – I haven’t got Anything Better to Do (1969) is perhaps one of her darkest album ever and this one – recorded in the same year – is just the opposite. September 17, 1969 is groovy and sometimes sounds like rock’n’roll albums from the early 60’s. The repertoire is also different from any other Astrud Gilberto albums, including the legendary The Doors hit Light my Fire, Here, there and Everywhere from John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Begginers from Chicago, among others that you can check just bellow. Tracks include:01 – Beginnings (Lamm)
02 – Holiday (M. Gibb / B. Gibb / R. Gibb)
03 – Here There And Everywhere (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)
04 – Light My Fire (Desmore / Kriegen / Manzarek)
05 – Let Go (Canto de Ossanha)
06 – Let’s Have The Morning After (Joyce / Leonard)
07 – Think Of Rain (Guryan)
08 – Million Miles Away Behind The Door (Lerner / Previn)
09 – Love Is Stronger Far Than We (Barouh, Keller, Lai)
10 – Don’t Leave Me Baby (Nilsson)
11 – Summer Sweet 1 & 2 (Kaplan / White)

Thanks Mr. E. for Astrud Gilberto – September 17, 1969 (1969), at Loronix.  Hope uEnjoy!

Astrud Gilberto – I Haven’t Got Anything Better to Do (1969)

Loronix birthday is also time for some special and very requested reposts. I don’t run statistics on reposts and I think this album is the second on number of requests, the first I don’t need to say what it. It was released in January with a problem on track 01 – A Time for US with a very low quality. I was amazing to find this LP at Sao Paulo Vinyl fair for only R$ 10, less than five dollars, original 1969 Brazilian issue. Now Loronixers can enjoy the missing track and get the whole set on a better quality, a miracle that takes place only at Loronix 1st anniversary. I’m gathering the first post text and I hope you enjoy these special birthday reposts.

This is Astrud Gilberto – I Haven’t Got Anything Better to Do (1969), for Verve, a forgotten Astrud Gilberto work taking in consideration her whole discography. In the liner notes, Astrud says that it is her “fireplace album”, something that I could not understand why hearing it. This is truly different Astrud Gilberto LP and very enjoyable to listen. The whole set has a melancholic atmosphere making a perfect match with her interpretation and stlye. Tracks include:

01 – A Time For Us (Tema de Amor de Romeu e Julieta) (Nino Rota / L. Kusik / E. Snyder)
02 – I Haven’t Got Anything Better To Do (P. Vance / L. Pockriss)
03 – Didn’t We (J. Webb)
04 – Wailing Of The Willow (H. Nilsson)
05 – Where’s The Love (B. Weinstein / Michel Legrand)
06 – The Sea Is My Soil (I Remember When) (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta / Vrs. Peter Udell)
07 – Trains And Boats And Planes (Burt Bacharach / H. David)
08 – World Stop Turning (M. Charlap / Peter Udell)
09 – Without Him (H. Nilsson)
10 – Wee Small Hours (B. Hilliard / D. Mann)
11 – If (The Biggest Little Word) (G. Sherman / Peter Udell)

The first to mention and call my attention to this album was The Jazzman and I remember we could not make it at that time due commercial availability. Then Caetano sent it on his last package and for my surprise it has gone out of print again. In spite of being almost unknown to Brazilian mass audience, Astrud Gilberto is famous worldwide and one of the most wanted artists at Loronix. I’m saving a great Astrud surprise for Loronix 1st Anniversary Celebration. Stay tuned.

This is Astrud Gilberto – Astrud Gilberto with Turrentine (1973), for Columbia, featuring the US sax player Stanley Turrentine. Very easy to describe and self-explanatory, Astrud Gilberto with Stanley Turrentine is a reunion of top-notch musicians lead by Eumir Deodato (piano, arrangements), such as: Sivuca, Dom Um Romao, Gene Bertoncini, Ron Carter, Toots Thielemans, among others. The repertoire mixes Brazilian and American songs and there are two instrumental tracks, To a Flame and Vera Cruz by Milton Nascimento and Fernando Brant. Tracks include:

PersonnelStanley Turrentine
(sax tenor)
Eumir Deodato
(arrangements, piano)
Gene Bertoncini, Sam Brown and Sivuca
Bob Mann
(guitar solo)
Ron Carter and Russel George
Airto Moreira, Joao Palma, Dom Um Romao and Dennis Seiwell
Toots Thielemans
Hubert Laws, George Marge, Romeo Penque and Jerome Richardson

Track List

01 – Wanting Things (Burt Bacharach / H. David)
02 – Mulher Rendeira (Brazilian Tapestry) (Tradicional / Adpt. Eumir Deodato)
03 – To a Flame (S. Stills) Instrumental
04 – Solo El Fin (For All We Know) (R. Wilson / A. James / Vrs. K. Freed)
05 – Zazueira (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
06 – Ponteio (Edu Lobo / Capinan)

I don’t know how popular is this album worldwide, but certainly it is one of the most, how can I say, identified with Bossa Nova, at least in the USA. A Certain Smile and A Certain Sadness was released in 1966, a time when Bossa Nova mania was on its peak. I have been browsing some statistics and Astrud Gilberto is one of the most popular artists at Loronix, Walter Wanderley also. This cover artwork has its charm, showing Astrud Gilberto surrounded by Walter Wanderley (left), Claudio Slon (right) and probably Bobby Rosengarden (center).

I could not check, but Joao Gilberto guitar is possibly on this album, playing in all tunes. Caetano is providing this LP to Loronixers on CD quality, with tracks from the original 1966 issue.

This is Astrud Gilberto and Walter Wanderley Trio – A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness (1966), for Verve, featuring the voice of Astrud Gilberto and Walter Wanderley trio, which is Walter Wanderley (organ, piano), Claudio Slon (drums), Jose Marino (bass) and Bobby Rosengarden (percussion), produced by Creed Taylor. Astrud sings in Portuguese and English. Tracks include:

01 – A Certain Smile (Fain / Paul Francis Webster)
02 – A Certain Sadness (Carlos Lyra / John Court)
03 – Nega do Cabelo Duro (David Nasser / Rubens Soares)
04 – So Nice (Summer Samba) (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle / Vrs. Norman Gimbel)
05 – Você Já Foi a Bahia (Dorival Caymmi)
06 – Portuguese Washerwoman (Lucchesi / Popp)
07 – Tristeza (Goodbye Sadness) (Haroldo Lobo / Niltinho Tristeza / Vrs. Norman Gimbel)
08 – Call Me (Hatch)
09 – Here’s That Rainy Day (Babcock / Burke / Van Heusen)
10 – Tu Mi Delirio (C. Portillo de La Luz)
11 – It’s a Lovely Day Today (Irving Berlin)

Hello, Good Night! The daylight saving days are over in Brazil and it is something that changes Loronix business as usual, mainly for the friends out of Brazil. If you are from Europe, you will see the first post one hour late. Folks at the opposite direction of our zone, one hour earlier. The only friend that does not give a damn to this change is zecalouro, he is driven by mother nature. Happy parrot.

Anyway, since you have already an introduction to this post looking at my homemade cover design, I will be straightforward, saving your time at this start of another day at Loronix.

This is Antonio Carlos Jobim & Astrud Gilberto – Viva Brasil, Live at “Jazz aus Südamerika” ZDF Jazz Club, Germany (1988), and no Label. I took sometime with the help of tcisalpino to understand what we had, this is the audio of a live concert, extracted from the video, featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrud Gilberto and probably with the accompaniment of Banda Nova. We could not check if Banda Nova is performing at this concert. If you have this video, it will be of easy identification, please let us know. Tracks include:

01 – Água De Beber – Antonio Carlos Jobim
02 – The Girl From Ipanema – Astrud Gilberto
03 – Áquas De Março – Antonio Carlos Jobim
04 – Chega De Saudade – Antonio Carlos Jobim
05 – Wave – Antonio Carlos Jobim
06 – Corcovado – Antonio Carlos Jobim
07 – Garota De Ipanema – Antonio Carlos Jobim
08 – Felicidade – Antonio Carlos Jobim
09 – Samba De Uma Nota Só – Antonio Carlos Jobim
10 – Canto De Ossanha – Astrud Gilberto
11 – Adeus América – Astrud Gilberto
12 – Ponteio – Astrud Gilberto
13 – Áqua De Beber – Astrud Gilberto

Encontrei no Youtube um vídeo com parte do show do Tom Jobim na Alemanha. Como pode ser visto nos comentários, são dois shows separados, o do Tom e o da Astrud.

Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto were together in 1964 to record this relaxing and enjoyable JazzBossa album. Astrud sings on five tracks. There is some controversy about the origin of these recordings; some people say that it was live on a small nightclub. Some say that the album is a studio record.

zecalouro invites you to try and decide, actually, zecalouro could not hear applauses or any kind of noise common to a live gig..

Astrud Gilberto is Brazilian, for sure. Astrud Gilberto was the lady in the right place and with the right husband, sure. Julie London, with her Julie is Her Name, was also the right lady in the right place and time, but she never could go further.

Astrud did. This album was arranged by Eumir Deodato and Luiz Bonfá and it is a mixture from A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness – tracks 13 to 17 and the original Beach Samba – tracks 1 to 12.

It’s national holiday in Brazil, zecalouro is feeling lazy today, Astrud is a best start for today.
