Hello, good evening! I spent a terrific time in Rio de Janeiro today. The sun was up all the time, but the temperature was not hot as summer. The beach was full of people, not the same dudes that lives here, but several friends from other Brazilian cities and countries. Every time I spent a day like this, I come home with nice ideas of posting something very “Carioca”, such like this beautiful homage album released by RGE to celebrate Rio de Janeiro 4th centenarian in 1964. Let’s see.

This is Maestro Carioca & Orquestra Guanabara – Rio Quatrocentao (1964), for RGE. Very nice and really above the average RGE production. The cover artwork is amazing with the word RIO opened, revealing the top of Sugarloaf and Morro da Urca peaks through the internal photo. The back cover features liner notes written by Sergio Porto, also known as Stanislaw Ponte Preta. Additionally, a welcome message written in English, French and Spanish can be find enclosed with three fantastic photographs of well-known Rio de Janeiro spots. Everything is included with the download package. The music features songs celebrating Rio de Janeiro, such as Cidade Maravilhosa, Rio, Valsa de Uma Cidade, among others.

I’m taking the internal English presentation, which explains a lot the whole RGE idea on his beautiful tribute to Rio de Janeiro 4h centenarian. Tracks include:

Welcome to Rio!

This album is a living picture of Rio de Janeiro of nowadays. A happy and welcome city, opening its arms for the tourists from the whole world, specially in this commemorative year of its 4th centenarian. The musics recorded in the long play, are the merry melodies sung by the “Cariocas”* in the streets, during the whole year and in the sensational days of Carnival. When you take this musical souvenir, you are taking a piece of Brazil’s heart!

(*) CARIOCA – Native or inhabitant of Rio de Janeiro.

Some friends will think or say: “here comes zecalouro with another of those promotional albums for tourists in Rio de Janeiro…”. No problem, I would make only this cover that worth the entire experience with this antique. That’s why I’m making something different this time; I’m including a high-resolution copy of cover artwork with no Rapidshare. Let’s see.

This is Orquestra Popular da Guanabara – Rio (1968), for Premier, same concept used in the previous release of this kind, issued for promote tourism activities, musicians not credited, nice cover artwork picturing well-known spots in Rio de Janeiro and a repertoire full of standards. However, there is an exception, this album features an orchestra lead by Maestro Carioca, Orquestra Popular da Guanabara and the repertoire is a wonderful selection of songs with lyrics about Rio de Janeiro. Tracks include:

01 – Cidade Maravilhosa (Andre Filho)
02 – Copacabana (Joao de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
03 – Rio, Eterna Capital (Raul Sampaio / Benil Santos)
04 – Rio de Janeiro, Quatrocentao (Claribalte Passos)
05 – Valsa de uma Cidade (Ismael Netto / Antonio Maria)
06 – Morro de Santa Tereza (Herivelto Martins)
07 – Rio Quatrocentao (Raul Sampaio / Benil Santos)
08 – Noites Cariocas (Oswaldo Borba / N. Wanderley)
09 – Rio (Ary Barroso)
10 – Rio Antigo (Altamiro Carrilho)
11 – Samba do IV Centenario (Claribalte Passos)

Carioca and His Cuban Percussion Orchestra – ChaChaCha Explosivo

Publicado em: Thursday, February 15, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Night! I do not have words to explain how zeca got excited with this music. I’m wondering if he is a disguised Cuban parrot instead of a Brazilian Amazona Aestiva. He had a real fun today and he could not stop with his imitations of Maestro Carioca brass section all day long. When he gets excited, he uses to stay like the picture, with big pupils and the tail opened.

This post is a late homage to my very good friend zeca, which I took his picture to create Loronix character. Sometimes I feel confused with my real identity, even my old friends are starting to call me as zeca.

This is Carioca and His Cuban Percussion Orchestra – ChaChaCha Explosivo (no date), for Imperial/Odeon. In the mood of Carnaval, this album should fit the needs of those who are looking for a dancing orchestra set with Latin rhythms. It will be very nice to see a Cuban flavored Maestro Carioca after those nice Samba orchestra albums. Sorry about the release date, I could not gather and probably no one knows it. However, my estimates are from 1961 to 1963. Tracks include:

01 – O Terceiro Homem (A. Karas / W. Lord)
02 – Limelight (Charles Chaplin)
03 – Stranger In Paradise (R. Wright / G. Forrest)
04 – Las Secretárias (P. Luis)
05 – Temptation (N. H. Brown / A. Freed)
06 – Mona Lisa (Jay Livingston / R. Evans)
07 – El Bodeguero (E. R. Egues)
08 – Me Lo Dijo Adela (O. Portal)
09 – Again (L. Newman / D. Cochran)
10 – Rum And Coca-cola (M. Amsterdan)
11 – Chá-chá-chá Nº 5 (J. Loco)
12 – Alexander’s Ragtime Band (Irving Berlin)

Carioca e Sua Orquestra – Classicos no Samba (1960)

Publicado em: Friday, February 02, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Night! Let’s talk today about how the LPs get damaged along the years and how to get things fixed. I think this post is a perfect example to talk about this. This beautiful cover has been on earth since 1960, 47 years and how it gets hurt since them. I use to make some fixes using computer graphics, but I decided to show it unchanged this time.

I have some questions, how to get rid of that bands with glue used to fix the corners and borders? How to clean the surface and remove dirty with no damage to cover paper. How to remove paper seals and how to eliminate the round marks of the LP borders at the cover? Pencil marks; is there a way to get rid of them? Sorry, for the several questions, but sometimes we need to pull knowledge from friends instead of trying from scratch. Thanks. Going back to the music…

This is Carioca e Sua Orquestra – Classicos no Samba (1960), for RCA Victor, a creative album from Maestro Carioca, making his renditions of a selected repertoire of classical music with the rhythm of Samba. It is very interest to see how many times the bridge between classical music and popular music was addressed along the years with catastrophic results sometimes. This is not the case. Personnel listing is available. Tracks include:

PersonnelFats Elpidio
(tracks 06, 10 and 12)
Laerte
(piano)
Paulo Moura, Wilson, Aurino, Sandoval and Orfeu
(sax)

…and several others on rhythm section, available with the music.

Tracks

Publicado em: Wednesday, December 06, 2006 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Night! Today I’m feeling really tired. I slept badly last night, less than two hours. The name of the disease is called “computer problems”. A big problem this time. I have been with computer for the last twenty years and I never loose a battle with them. I will make another round tonight, but I’m afraid to loose. It is a minor problem, a DVD-ROM attached with as a USB device isn’t working anymore. Corrupted ATPI drivers that I know by heart how to replace are not working. The final solution is a full SO reinstall with all customizations made to Loronix on the drain.

Sorry about this, I’m really disappointed and sometimes is good share with Loronixers some feelings.

Anyway, let’s forget it for the next 5 hours, another Loronix day is just starting, starting great with another Mr. X. contribution. This is Carioca and His Orchestra – Bossa Nova on Fire (1963), for Musidisc. I’m not translating the title, for a reason that I do not know why, both artist and record name is in English. Perhaps Nilo Sergio and Maestro Carioca had the international market on their minds. The production is great, nice cover artwork, superb sound quality and 320Kbps MP3s provided by Mr. X. Tracks include:

01 – Ginga Nº 7 (Ivan Paulo da Silva “Carioca”)
02 – Nunca Mais (Ed Lincoln / Silvio César)
03 – O Barquinho (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
04 – História (Nilo Sergio)
05 – Pergunte ao João (Helena Silvia / Milton Costa)
06 – Samba Toff (Orlann Divo / Roberto Jorge)
07 – Samba Em Brasa (Ivan Paulo da Silva “Carioca”)
08 – Amanhã Eu Vou (Nilo Sergio)
09 – Mulata Assanhada (Ataulfo Alves)
10 – Parti (Ed Lincoln / Silvio César)

Não tinha este disco. Porém, graças ao Milan Filipovic, ele agora está disponível no Parallel Realities. Como ressaltado pelo AD nos comentários, esta é uma outra versão do disco Sambas em Brasa, com duas músicas a menos.

This is in a particular homage for a friend that I made with Loronix, a great friend that lives more than 4 hours ahead of Brazilian time and it is here every night, waiting for the last post, exchanging ideas using email or IM and sometimes ending his day at the end of mine, which is around 2 or 3am. Does he ever sleep?

Publicado em: Sunday, October 22, 2006 by zecalouro

This seems to be a reissue of an LP that probably introduces a new kind of recording technology and cover artwork design. well. I never heard about that before, but at linear notes it is explained that Maestro Carioca e Sua Orquestra – Samba Oba! (196?) is part of “Serie Percussônica Imperial”. Do not ask me what exactly it is in terms of recording technology, but as artwork design, the linear notes statement says that the cover represents a new age “A Era Spacial da Musica”.

I was not born in the 50’s and early 60’s, but how wonderful it would be living in Brazil in these decades. Sometimes we miss what we never had experienced.

I invite you to check this Big Band Orchestra conducted by Maestro Carioca and it Percussonic Samba. A great instrumental LP that will make you swings a lot. Tracks include:

01 – Boato (João Roberto Kelly)
02 – Cheiro de Saudade (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio)
03 – Samba de Uma Nota Só (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
04 – Nega (Waldemar Gomes / Afonso Teixeira)
05 – Desafinado (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
06 – Não Tenho Lágrimas (Max Bulhões / Milton de Oliveira)
07 – A Felicidade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – Chora Cavaquinho (Dunga)
09 – Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
10 – Agora É Cinza (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide” / Armando “Marçal”)
11 – O Orvalho Vem Caindo (Noel Rosa / Kid Pepe)
12 – Se Acaso Você Chegasse (Lupicínio Rodrigues / Felisberto Martins)
