Hello, good evening! I thought I knew something about Brazilian popular music before opening Loronix, but when I met respected collectors such like Caetano Rodrigues and Jorge Mello, I realized I was totally ignorant about several things. Jorge Mello provides the show today, showing this truly nice Bola Sete LP recorded for Odeon in 1962 featuring an organist, not a standard musician, but the mighty Luiz Eça dueling with Bola Sete on electric organ, an unusual instrument for Luiz Eça. Let’s see.

This is Bola Sete – O Extraordinario Bola Sete (1962), for Odeon, featuring Luiz Eca at organ in seven tracks. I think you should take this one for a hearing. These early Bola Sete LPs released by Odeon never had a chance to reach the CD age and it is not every day you have the chance to hear Luiz Eca playing organ. Bola Sete is not alone at the remaining five tracks, he has the accompaniment of another unusual formation, three piston players. Unfortunately, remaining musicians in this session were not credited by Odeon. Tracks include:

Personnel

Bola Sete
(guitar)
Luiz Eca
(organ)

Track List

01 – Menino Desce Daí (Paulinho Nogueira)
02 – Deixa Andar (Jujuba)
03 – Você e Eu (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)

Bola Sete - Aqui Está O Bola Sete

Hello, good evening! I bought a new scanner; actually, the community bought it via donations to Paypal and the Brazilian alternative Pagseguro. I made some calculations; each album required eight scans, four passes on each side. Perhaps the old scanner did the job nicely, the load was huge, it was almost 4,000 (four thousand) scan in approximately 15 months. Anyway, the bottom-line is that nothing is stopping me now. And to celebrate, it is time to present another nice contribution made by Jorge Mello, featuring a legendary Brazilian musician. Let’s see.

This is Bola Sete e Seu Conjunto – Aqui Esta o Bola Sete (1957), for Odeon, which is Bola Sete debut LP in the Para Dancar style. With the help of Jorge Mello, we are gradually completing Bola Sete discography in his early yearly years. And there is more to come since all these albums never had a chance to be reissued in CD. Bola Sete plays electric guitar renditions of Brazilian standards, Bolero and two compositions by his own. Odeon did not credit musicians in this session. Tracks include:

01 – Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
02 – Rico Vacilon (Rosendo Ruiz)
03 – Copacabana (João de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
04 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)
05 – Solamente Una Vez (Agustin Lara)
06 – Morena Boca de Ouro (Ary Barroso)
07 – Baccará (Bola Sete)
08 – Molambo (Jaime Florence “Meira” / Augusto Mesquita)
09 – No Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso / Lamartine Babo)
10 – Remexendo (Radamés Gnattali)
11 – Czardas (V. Monti)
12 – Por Um Amor (Bola Sete)

Bola Sete - Carnival in Rio (Bola Sete Em HI-Fi - Sinter)_2

Hello, good evening! This is another fantastic contribution by Jorge Mello, featuring Bola Sete with a pretty obscure album. My searches were not successful tracking down this record. I’ve been at many discographies websites and even at Bola Sete official website. I even made a challenge at Loronix to get some information about Bola Sete and this group and could not gather additional info.

In a first sight, this lady seems to be Dolores Duran, but she isn’t Dolores Duran. She is credited as Therezinha Bittencourt, which is a singer that I never heard about and could not find a single mention on my searches. I’m afraid this is an unknown Bola Sete album for many. Let’s see.

This is Bola Sete, su Conjunto Tipico Brasilero y su Cantante Therezinha Bittencourt – Carnival in Rio (1958), for Puchito, which is a Spanish record company. The back cover brings a short description of Bola Sete early years with his Conjunto and says that Carnival in Rio was recorded in Spain, during Bola Sete European tour. The back cover also brings a “footnote” confirming Carnival in Rio was recorded in Spain, which is something that you can check at the slider below, followed by my translation to English from back cover liner notes. I would like to thanks Jorge Mello for another amazing album. Tracks include:

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Bola Sete showed his artistic skills since early childhood at the age of 7 years playing guitar, whose talent he inherited from his parents.

Bola Sete is very popular in Brazil. Just as throughout Europe and South America. It is exclusive artist of Radio Nacional in Rio de Janeiro. About three years ago, he organized a group, which is composed of Brazilians, and went into great artistic tour around the country. His first contract was at the Film Festival of Punta del Este, then in theaters in Buenos Aires, Radio Belgrano Sunset Club, where he was acclaimed for his great artistic talent. Then in Chile performed at the Waldorf; Grill in Peru in Bolivia, and throughout South America, achieving many laurels. Then they were touring Europe for artistic, and in Madrid have acted with great success in Parilla Rex. It was here where Montilla hired him to record the selections so ably interpreted in this album.

01 – Sonador
02 – Chiquito
03 – Caravana
04 – Coco Baturite
05 – Nina Brazanan
06 – Baile O Coco
07 – Uno a Cero
08 – Canta Maria
09 – Mulher Rendeira
10 – Imperio de Samba
11 – Samba no Perroquet
12 – Nino Grande

Update: Jorge Mello sent this great Bola Sete interview, available below. New findings about this mysterious album will be posted tonight. Stay tuned.

Hello, Good evening! I never had the hope to share a single album released by the legendary Bola Sete recorded in his early Brazilian years in the 50’s, but with the help of Jorge Mello, everything has changed and this is the second out of a lot of Bola Sete album from this period being released at Loronix. I think these early Bola Sete records are very important posts, his early album never were reissued in the digital age and this is an unique chance to get along with the early works of this truly amazing musician. Let’s see.

This is Bola Sete e Seu Conjunto – Travessuras do Bola 7 (1958), for Odeon, featuring Bola Sete playing electric guitar backed by Conjunto and perfoming a repertorie blending Brazilian standards and a few Bola Sete compositions. As Travessuras do Bola 7 was released in the same year of Bola 7 e 4 Trombones, following the same concept with amazing guitar solos and very dancing cuts. My highlight goes to Bola Sete and Ary Barroso compositions, including also the track featured at Loronix Preview Center, Canta Brasil by David Nasser and Alcyr Pires Vermelho. Odeon did not credit musicians in this session. Tracks include:

01 – Rio de Janeiro (Ary Barroso)
02 – Adeus América (Haroldo Barbosa / Geraldo Jacques)
03 – Siga (Fernando Lobo / Hélio Guimarães)
04 – Brasil Moreno (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
05 – Calypso das Rosas (Bola Sete)
06 – Exaltação à Bahia (Vicente Paiva / Chianca de Garcia)
07 – Canta Brasil (David Nasser / Alcyr Pires Vermelho)

Bola Sete - Bola Sete E 4 Trombones

This post is the start of a series of other absolutely amazing posts, all part of an incredible contribution made by a tireless and respectful friend, with several years of contribution to Brazilian music (I think I spoke a lot!). From now one, we will get along with truly breathtaking music. Everything happened this Sunday and I confess that I’m still paralyzed with the amount of unbelievable albums I knew today.

I was like a child this afternoon, leaving everything aside and listening to records that never imagined could exist. This is the reason of a bit of suspense across this Monday, I did not have time to prepare a properly introduction to the author of this series of contributions. I would like to show at least the tip of the iceberg today with an album that I was hunting for many years, which is better than my most optimistic expectations. Let’s see.

This is Bola Sete – Bola 7 e 4 Trombones (1958), for Odeon, the first Bola Sete album from the 50’s at Loronix, recorded before he made his move to the United States. Bola Sete delivers guitar playing with four trombones, drums and percussion on a truly amazing session. There are lots of funs inside this album, you can check at Loronix Preview Center what I’m saying, with Bola Sete playing a fantastic rendition of Eu Quero um Samba (Guio de Moraes), I’m confident that 10 seconds of listening should be enough to make your decision. It is really amazing to hear an early work of Bola Sete for the first time. Unfortunately, Odeon did not credit the four trombonists, as all others. Tracks include:

01 – Não Vou Pra Brasília (Billy Blanco)
02 – Mambeando (Bola Sete)
03 – Mister Jimmy (Bola Sete)
04 – The Man I Love (Ira Gershwin / George Gershwin)
05 – Intrigas no Boteco do Padilha (Luis Americano)
06 – Foi Você (Oscar Bellandi / Paulo Gesta)
07 – Eu Quero Um Samba (Guio de Morais)
08 – Calypsilone (Bola Sete)
09 – Pitéuzinho (Bola Sete)
10 – Jersey Bounce (Pister / Bradshaw / Johnson / Wright)
11 – Manãna (D. Barbour / P. Lee)
12 – Ouça (Maysa) Do-ré-mi (Fernando César / Nazareno de Brito) Maria (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)

Publicado em: Monday, July 02, 2007 by zecalouro

I have been on a never ending hunting for Bola Sete albums recorded in Brazil before he made his move to the US. Bola Sete started his international career before Bossa Nova, he left Brazil in the very beginning of the 60’s. Brazilian albums were released by Odeon, the first in 1957, followed by five or six others really impossible to find. Anyway, let’s stay with this one while the hunting continues.

This is Bola Sete – The Incomparable Bola Sete (1965), for Fantasy. I was surprised when checking www.bolasete.com today and realize that The Incomparable Bola Sete is different from Bola Sete Tour the Force, which is a reissue of Bossa Nova. Bola Sete performs solo and accompanied by a traditional quartet. The song that I like most is 07 – Valsa de Uma Cidade (Ismael Netto / Antonio Maria), a great Bola Sete rendition. Personnel is not credited. Tracks include:

01 – Bolido (Bola Sete)
02 – Lamento de Negro (Bola Sete)
03 – Influência do Jazz (Carlos Lyra)
04 – Feitiço da Vila (Noel Rosa / Vadico)
05 – Saravá (Bola Sete / Konrad)
06 – Be-bossa (Bola Sete)
07 – Valsa de Uma Cidade (Ismael Netto / Antônio Maria)
08 – Just Another Love (Bola Sete)
09 – The Girl From Lodi (Bola Sete)
10 – Original Joe’s (Bola Sete)

Publicado em: Monday, May 14, 2007 by zecalouro

I have been thinking about showing this album every week since last year and now I have some reasons for making it. Yesterday, Ipanema Sun asked for it using a comment at Astrud Gilberto post and today, I was talking with Ronnie Mesquita about another Bola Sete album that he played drums, Sheebaba, which is one of the greatest Bola Sete albums in my humble opinion. Everything leads to Bola Sete – Ocean.

This is Bola Sete – Ocean (1972), for Takoma. Breathtaking guitar only album blending meditative Bossa Nova renditions with vibrant Flamenco tunes. Another reason for do not make it before was complexity, Ocean sounds strange at a first hearing, but it is the kind of album that rewards you more and more on every new hearing you take. I hope people also reward Ronnie, Ipanema Sun and zeca to bring Bola Sete to the spotlight again at Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – Vira Mundo Penba
02 – Guitar Lamento
03 – Let Go
04 – Macumba
05 – The Lonely Gaucho
06 – Inn of the Beginning
07 – Xango Xengo Xerengo

I’m just leaving a phone call with Caetano to make the decision of the posts of the day and this one was taken with no hesitation from both parts, actually, when we remember this pick we both shout out loud as we were on a soccer stadium, saying YEEES! Muito bom! É ESSE MESMO and other terms that are not appropriate. Let’s check the reason for this great enthusiasm.

This is Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete – & Sus Amigos (1963), for Fantasy, the first of a series of collaborations of the great Brazilian guitar player Bola Sete and the jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi, featuring Bola Sete (guitar, arrangements), Vince Guaraldi (piano, arrangements), Fred Marshall (bass) and Jerry Granelli (drums). The first thing that came to my mind when I heard this album was: “these guys are long-time friends”. Big mistake of mine, I read that they knew each other one day before the recording session. Caetano kindly present us a Spanish edition, the US edition is Vince Guaraldi / Bola Sete & Friends. Tracks include:

01 – Days of Wine and Roses
02 – Star Song
03 – Mambossa
04 – Moon Rays
05 – Casaba

This post is to make us remember that Brazil has another top-notch guitarist, such like the mighty Luiz Bonfa from yesterday’s release. zecalouro has special admiration by this genius that left Brazil to USA very early and could not be associated with Bossa Nova as his counterparts.

Meet Bola Sete – Live at Grace Cathedral (1976), a live set that was made as a benefit for a hunger organization and an acclaimed album showing Bola Sete on what is considered his best live performance. It is hard to write about something that by definition is exceptional. The last track, Tio George is Bola Sete tribute to his uncle who taught him to play guitar. Tracks include:

01 – Jongo
02 – Gaucho / Meu Ogum
03 – Carnival Nights

This is an early out of print Bola Sete LP from 1962 recorded as a traditional trio format, guitar, drums and bass. Bola Sete – Bossa Nova (1962) is not a true “Bossa Nova” record as titled, but a nice Jazz LP, Bola was one of the first Brazilian artists to move to US and could not be associated or influenced by the movement.

Great guitar solos that zecalouro uses to hear weekly. This post would never be released without the help of the Loronixer Leandro Ferreira, which is from now one zecalouro consultant on artwork recovery. Leandro’s art could transform a tiny icon into this nice picture. Miracle. Thanks Leandro. Tracks include:

01 – Tô de sinuca (Bola Sete)
02 – Meu Mundo Diferente (Konrad – Bola Sete)
03 – Dilema (O. Guilherme – Jacques)

It’s been a long time since we had the last Bola Sete at Loronix. So, zecalouro invites you to get a sample from one of Bola Sete releases with the Jazz pianist Vince Guarald, Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete, From All Sides (1964).

This album has a version of Garota de Ipanema that worths the visit, with Bola and Vince matching together perfectly, something very difficult when we put together a guitar with a Piano.

This is a wonderful out of print Bola Sete Album, Shebaba, recorded in 1971. Bola plays six original songs and some
interpretation of Beatles: Polythene Pam, She Came In through the Bathroom Window and Harrinson’s My Sweet Lord. The Beatles stuff is fantastic. Bola guitar sounds psychodelic on these tracks, the Samba percussion is also a must.
