I never imagined that a request made more than a year ago is now addressed by Loronix community after all this time, especially this album, a really hard to find record, never released in Brazil. We need to send Kudos to our friend Eric and his nice work on preparing hi-res scan covers from front and back, making also the transfer on WAV, enabling the creation of FLAC files that are growing fast in popularity after Happy Hour creation. I think it is time to publish my complete wish-list somewhere. Let’s see.
This is Carolina Cardoso de Menezes e Orlando Silveira – Honeymoon in Rio (1956), for Capitol (USA), never released in Brazil, featuring the piano of Carolina Cardoso de Menezes and the accordion of Maestro Orlando Silveira, delivering Samba and Baiao, funny translated by Capitol as “Baions”. I would like to show you the delicious liner notes written by Capital, with the whole atmosphere of this record. Tracks include:
…Romantic Rio offers that “certain” extra in its scenic attractions… and in its highly personalized music… SAMBA, anyone?
Brazil in 1956 underwent a tremendous change with a new president, new plans for expansion and economic improvements, a new census listing the, population at 58 million and a new customs ruling which allows North Americans to visit the magic country without a visa.
Rio itself is about the size of Philadelphia and is the second largest city in South America-Buenos Aires is larger. Its hotels are superb, its restaurants first rate, its night life gay and expensive. Horse racing is popular, as is soccer, boxing, tennis and polo. Bullfighting, however, is not allowed. There are good theaters, and taxis (distinguished by special red license plates) are easily available for a few cruzeiros (it takes 50 to make a U.S.A. dollar). Brazilian food and wines are excellent, and scenery like Copacabana Beach with its sleek hotels and curving sidewalks of gorgeous hand-set mosaics, and mighty Sugar Loaf and Corcovado mountains, are as attractive as anything you could desire.
The samba and the baion characterize Brazil-and Rio-as well as any of the country’s native contributions to art. Orlando Silveira plays the true baions and pretty Carolina Cardoso de Meneses the authentic sambas in this album, recorded for Capitol in Rio with the romanticists in mind.
Make no mistake, Rio is romantic. Its music is proof.
