Doces Bárbaros, Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil & Maria Bethânia - Doces Bárbaros

I have a nice connection with this album and I’m glad it is back to Loronix again. The first time it was made available, it lasts less than 24 hours. I made it by mistake, a few copies were already being sold by an on-line store and now it has gone definitively out of print, which is a shame, this is a classic. As I said, this album was important for my background as an amateur musician and also to drag my attention to Brazilian music and the four giants that share the role of main performer, the tropicalia legends Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Gal Costa and Caetano’s sister Maria Bethania. Let’s see.

This is Doces Barbaros – Doces Barbaros (1976), for Philips, according with many reviews I read today, this is one of the nicest Brazilian popular music albums recorded in the 70’s. The group and the concert were assembled to celebrate 10 years of their artistic career. I also learn something that I did not know today, a DVD was released with original footage of these concerts as a documentary featuring backstage scenes and live performances. Meanwhile, let’s stay with this double album, in the spirit of Carmen Miranda Centennial. Tracks include:

Caetano Veloso - A Bossa De Caetano

Hello, good evening! I think you should now be asking yourself why zeca is publishing an album released so early in 2000, which is a baby, according with regular Loronix releases, focused on much older music from the 50’s to the 80’s.

The answer is quite simple, this album is out of print and it is really a treat, featuring Caetano Veloso Bossa Nova repertoire, taken from his releases from 1967 to 1999. Additionally, this is a lovely album and Caetano Veloso celebrates today, 07 August, his 66th anniversary. I’m a big fan of Caetano Veloso, one of the artists that most influenced my way of thinking Brazilian popular music. Happy Birthday, Caetano. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso – A Bossa de Caetano (2000), for Philips, featuring fourteen Caetano Veloso Bossa Nova cuts, including compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Carlos Lyra, Marcos Valle, Joao Gilberto, and others. Only two Caetano Veloso compositions are available here. My very difficult choice to Loronix Preview Center is 13 – Oba, La, La – Bim, Bom, Joao Gilberto compositions. Tracks include:

01 – Summer Samba (Samba de Verao) (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
02 – Chega De Saudade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Desde Que O Samba e Samba (Caetano Veloso)
04 – Coisa Mais Linda (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – Get Out Of Town (Cole Porter)
06 – Quando Eu Penso Na Bahia (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
07 – Chuvas de Verao (Fernando Lobo)
08 – Lindeza (Caetano Veloso)
09 – Chora Tua Tristeza (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini)
10 – Nega Maluca (Fernando Lobo / Evaldo Ruy) Billie Jean (Michael Jackson) Eleanor Rigby (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)
11 – Dindi (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira) Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – Samba e Amor (Chico Buarque)
13 – Oba-la-la (Joao Gilberto) Bim Bom (Joao Gilberto)
14 – Na Baixa Do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)

Caetano Veloso & Fagner - Disco De Bolso

I think that everybody remember when Loronix released a single with Antonio Carlos Jobim performing a very, let’s say, primitive Aguas de Marco. That album was the first release of a new magazine called Disco de Bolso, featuring a single with a well-now artist and a new artist on side B. The concept was excellent, but for reasons that I could not check, the magazine did not survive to the second edition, which is exactly what we have here, kindly sent by my Mother. Let’s see.

This is Disco de Bolso do Pasquim Numero 2 – Caetano Veloso e Fagner (1972), for Zen, featuring on side A Caetano Veloso, performing A Volta da Asa Branca, recorded live at Teatro Joao Caetano, Rio de Janeiro. Side B brings the new artist, Fagner, performing Mucuripe (Belchior / Fagner). Caetano Veloso does not have a support group, only his violao, while Fagner plays violao and is backed by Ivan Lins, playing organ. It is sad to know this magazine had such a short life. Both new artists (remember the first had Joao Bosco on side B) are now respected artists in Brazil. Tracks include:

01 – A Volta da Asa Branca (Luiz Gonzaga) with Caetano Veloso
02 – Mucuripe (Fagner / Belchior) with Fagner

Caetano Veloso - Qualquer Coisa (1975)-FRONT

I thought I could show and review this album without saying I’m a big fan of Caetano Veloso. So I decided to be open and honest with you, I’m a big fan of Caetano Veloso and this album is definitively one of his best releases in the 70’s. I could realize how great it is after spinning today after many years. Qualquer Coisa was recorded in the same session of Joia (Caetano Veloso masterpiece) and were released simultaneously, so we should take this one as the continuation of Joia. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso – Qualquer Coisa (1975), for Philips, featuring the piano of Joao Donato and Quarteto em Cy as special guest on track 07 – Jorge de Capadocia. I had the chance to listen to this album as soon it was released with the age of ten, being very important for me, Caetano Veloso renditions of three The Beatles tunes available on Side B, were my first contact with The Beatles music. I read several reviews saying these three cuts spoils this album, but I like them very much as I like the whole experience provided by Caetano Veloso with Qualquer Coisa, which is an album that you will spin several times. Tracks include:

VellosoBethaniaGil (1968)

Here we go on another nice album, courtesy of the great JOAO-SP and his package of LPs featuring so far Maysa, Os Demonios da Garoa, Quinteto Violado, Adoniran Barbosa, Radames Gnattali and Rafael Rabello, Paulinho Nogueira, Nara Leao & Roberto Menescal and Elis Regina with Zimbo Trio. There is more to come and we did not reach 50% of JOAO-SP albums. Let’s see another.
This is Caetano Veloso, Maria Bethania & Gilberto Gil – Velloso, Bethania, Gil (1968), for RCA. I did not have time to make the research needed to understand if this album is a compilation. However, I think that side A features a compilation with tracks taken from previous releases of Caetano Veloso, Maria Bethania and Gilberto Gil, while side B brings new material with Maria Bethania performing Noel Rosa repertoire. My perception is that JOAO-SE sent us two albums in one, being side B the one that I like most with Maria Bethania performing six gorgeous Noel Rosa tunes with her unique voice. Personnel listing was not credited by RCA. Tracks include:

01 – Cavaleiro (Caetano Veloso) with Caetano Veloso
02 – Roda (Gilberto Gil / Joao Augusto) with Gilberto Gil
03 – Samba em Paz (Caetano Veloso) with Caetano Veloso
04 – Viramundo (Gilberto Gil / Capinan) with Maria Bethania
05 – Procissao (Gilberto Gil) with Gilberto Gil

Joao Gilberto, Caetano Veloso e Gilberto Gil - Brasil (1981)

I’m feeling like a writer with a creative crisis to describe this beauty of an album. Perhaps my problem is to understand why this unusual and late Bossa Nova session featuring international musicians could result in such a solid album. Joao Gilberto has the control, playing the role of arranger and producer to work together with Tropicalia icons Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil to make this sublime record. This is an essential album that everybody should take for a listening and file as special on your Brazilian music affair.

This is Joao Gilberto, Caetano Veloso e Gilberto Gil – Brasil (1981), for WEA, a short session with six songs featuring Joao Gilberto guitar, the voices of Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and a special participation of Maria Bethania on track 04 – No Tabuleiro da Baiana. Personnel listing brings the acclaimed pianist and arranger Clare Fischer and Paulinho da Costa, the only Brazilian musician besides Joao Gilberto. Tracks include:


Joao Gilberto
(voice, violao, arrangements)
Clare Fischer, Michael Boddicker, Milcho Leviev
Jim Hughart
Joe Carrero
Paulinho da Costa
Johnny Mandel

Track List

01 – Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
02 – Disse Alguém (All Of Me) (Simons / Marks / Vrs. Haroldo Barbosa)
03 – Bahia Com H (Denis Brean)
04 – No Tabuleiro da Baiana (Ary Barroso) with Maria Bethânia

Caetano Veloso - Cinema Transcendental (1979)

When Cinema Transcendental was released, I had several adolescent philosophical discussions to understand the meaning of this cover artwork with Caetano Veloso at the beach not showing his face. Almost 30 years later, you get older, wiser and straightforward. I think Caetano tell us with this cover how we should listen to this album, lazy on the beach, doing nothing and letting the time goes. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso – Cinema Transcendental (1979), for Philips. If you were in Brazil in 1979, you should remember most of these 12 tunes, several tracks from Cinema Transcendental are among the most popular Caetano Veloso tunes, such as 01 – Lua de Sao Jorge, 04 – Menino do Rio, 07 – Trilhos Urbanos, 09 – Cajuina, among others. I could not decided Loronix Preview Center featured track, and I’m making track 01 – Lua de Sao Jorge just because it is the opening track. Have a nice Sunday and thanks for this wonderful start of 2008 at Loronix. Tracks include:
