Hello, good evening! Do not let this cover cheats you. Despite what you are looking, this is not a “Para Dancar” album, and it is not a conventional orchestra LP led by a maestro performing popular songs of its time. This is a great disc recorded by an artist who has always been in priorities for Loronix and also on the short list of every serious Brazilian music collector. This will be the only record released tonight, and I’m sure it worth many other albums together. Let’s see.

This is Carlos Piper e Sua Orquestra – E Otimo Dancar e Ouvir Carlos Piper e Sua Orquestra (1966), for Continental, featuring Carlos Piper Samba Jazz arrangements for Brazilian and American standards performed by a big band of top-notch musicians. It is amazing that a great musician such like Carlos Piper is completely unknown to the general public. My searches also failed to retrieve Carlos Piper information with Google. Some musicians in this session are also completely unknown. If anyone has additional information on Carlos Piper, feel free to share with us. Tracks include:


Lambari, Carlos Alberto, Waltinho, Palito
Biu, Ditinho, Arlindo, Iran
Botinao, Gentil, Broegas, Fluger, Oswaldo, Buda, Carlos Piper
Heraldo do Monte (amazing!)
Hermes, Sezinho, Nascimento

Track List

01 – Arrastão (Edu Lobo / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Samba do Negro (Sylvio Son / Roberto Corrêa)
03 – Charade (Henry Mancini / Mercer)
04 – Goldfinger (Barry / Bricusse / N. Ley / Valdés)

The first question you will make after hearing 30 second of the first track of this LP will be: Why they record only this album and disappear? I will do the same just in case if a friend has a answer to it. Why these girls did not follow on recordings? What happened? Another strike of Caetano Rodrigues, a vocal trio and their first and only LP that could easily be positioned such like Quarteto em Cy is today as a female vocal group.

I invite you to try the surprising Trio Samba – Samba! Samba! Samba! (1964), for Philips. I could track this time two members of Trio Samba, Wilma Camargo, a well-known Maestro, arranger and composer, with a solid contribution to Brazilian music and also a successful actress andTriana Romero that could also make her living with music that is retired today making some eventual presentations. The remaining member, Marina Fernanda Gradilone (Polly), could not be searched.

In spite of the wonderful vocal trio, Samba! Samba! Samba! has Carlos Piper e Sua Orquestra with beautiful arrangements. Tracks include:

01 – Doce Amor (Wilma Camargo)
02 – Rio (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
03 – Poeta Popular (Wilma Camargo)
04 – Mas Que Nada (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
05 – Ilhabela (Wilma Camargo)
06 – Por Causa de Você Menina (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
07 – Bolinha de Sabão (Orlann Divo / Adilson Azevedo)
08 – Quase Amor (Wilma Camargo)
09 – Insensatez (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
10 – Samba das Cores (Wilma Camargo)
11 – Ai Seu Eu Pudesse (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
12 – Vagamente (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)


Não tinha este disco. Porém, graças aos amigos bOssas nOvas e Martoni, ele agora está disponível na Rádio Forma e Elenco.
