Newton Mendonça - Em Cada Estrela Uma Canção

Hello, good evening! I will try to bring back two important posts to Loronix today (I hope I can made the second!), starting with one of the most awesome contribution made by a very good friend, the influential Bossa Nova collector Caetano Rodrigues. This is a tribute album to Newton Mendonca, a truly important Brazilian musician that passed away very early, but left a strong contribution to Brazilian popular music. I will keep my original writing made at August 2007. Let’s see.

> original post:

It is very hard to start writing for such post. This was supposed to be first today and I had to postpone guaranteeing a respectful homage to Newton Mendonca, the great musician and songwriter that left us very early. Newton Mendonça left us in 1960 with the very young age of 33. He was childhood friend and partner of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the author of some of the most important Bossa Nova songs, such as: Desafinado, Foi a Noite, Samba de Uma Nota So, Meditacao, So Saudade, among others. Caetano Rodrigues sent this fantastic Copacabana label tribute album that I did not known the existence and I’m very proud to make it available on this respectful homage to Newton Mendonca.

This is Em Cada Estrela uma Cancao (1961), for Copacabana, featuring Ernani Filho, Marisa Gata Mansa and Carminha Mascarenhas renditions to Newton Mendonca compositions. Really beautiful tribute álbum with Orchestra conducted by Maestro Pachequinho backing Ernani Filho and Marisa Gata Mansa. Carminha Mascarenhas has “Conjunto” accompaniment. A constellation of musicians performs in this session. Personnel listing is available bellow, as well tracks. Tracks include:

Taking the advantage of the enormous success and feedback given to Caetano’s last RGE compilation O Melhor da Bossa, I will pick another one sent by the same and tireless Caetano Rodrigues. Now we go with ten Bossa Nova interpretations by 5 Brazilian female singers. Let’s see.

This is Cinco Estrelas Interpretam a Bossa Nova (1963), for Copacabana, featuring Elizeth Cardoso, Marisa, Carminha Mascarenhas, Morgana and Lucienne Franco. Perhaps I’m wrong, Copacabana label did not release much records like this, since this is the first Copacabana compilation I have seen so far. Anyway, really a nice treat to hear the ladies singing Bossa Nova and also hear for the first time the voice of Carminha Mascarenhas, never released before at Loronix. I don’t need to say that this is a really hard to find album provided by Caetano Rodrigues. Tracks include:

01 – Menino Travesso (Moacir Santos / Vinicius de Moraes) – ELIZETH CARDOSO
02 – Chora Tua Tristeza (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini) – MARISA
03 – Ciúme Teu Ma (Walter / Joluz) – CARMINHA MASCARENHAS
04 – A Flor (Vera Brasil / De Rosa) – MORGANA
05 – Da Rosa Que Nasceu Nosso Amor (Baden Powell / Heloísa Setta) – LUCIENNE FRANCO
06 – Céu e Mar (Johnny Alf) – MARISA GATA MANSA
07 – Imenso Amor (Luis Bonfá / Maria Helena Toledo) – LUCIENNE FRANCO
08 – Cravo Vermelho (Pernambuco / Sergio Malta) – MORGANA
09 – Nós e o Mar (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli) – CARMINHA MASCARENHAS
10 – Seu Olhar (Laís Antunes) – ELIZETH CARDOSO
