Hello, good evening! This is the third album I’m making available from this obscure record company with the name and logo based on an animal that does not exists in Brazil, the legendary Tiger. Little I know about this label except these albums, the excellent Moacyr Marques e Seu Conjunto – Jazz & Bossa Nova (1959), a contribution of my Mentor Caetano Rodrigues and this early Hermeto Pascoal recording with Pernambuco do Pandeiro e Seu Regional – Batucando no Morro (1958), both really worth checking out. Catulo de Paula is an artist requested by many friends, many and important friends, such like Frank-Oliver Hellman, which I want to say thanks for recommending Catulo de Paula a long time ago. Let’s see.

This is Catulo de Paula – Catulo Canta no Michel (1959), for Tiger. Catulo de Paula delivers a repertoire based on his performances at Michel Bar, a nightclub I never heard about. According with Guio de Moraes liner notes, Catulo de Paula performed on Michel Bar for more than a year, accompanied only by his acoustic guitar. Ze Menezes delivers fantastic instrumental accompaniment to Catulo de Paula leading a trio of guitar, drums and bass. By the way, Ze Menezes gives a real lesson of how accompany singer with a guitar. Really worth checking out. Tracks include:

I would like to make something different now by showing two very old and nice 10-inch records released by Musidisc in 1953. The first, everybody known the group and musicians, the legendary Trio Surdina with their original formation, featuring Fafa Lemos, Chiquinho do Acordeon and Garoto on a tribute album to Dorival Caymmi and Noel Rosa. The second has three different main performers fitting on the small 10-inch media, Tres Marias, Leal Brito and Catulo de Paula, which is an artist requested by Loronixers. Let’s see the first with a single download link for both at the end.

This is Trio Surdina – Trio Surdina Interpreta Noel Rosa e Dorival Caymmi (1953), for Musidisc, with the four tracks of side A dedicated to Dorival Caymmi and the others of side B to Noel Rosa. Tracks include:


Fafa Lemos
(violin, voice)
Chiquinho do Acordeon

Track List

01 – Nem Eu (Dorival Caymmi)
02 – O Que É Que a Baiana Tem (Dorival Caymmi)
03 – O Mar (Dorival Caymmi)
04 – Não Tem Solução (Dorival Caymmi / Carlos Guinle)
05 – Fita Amarela (Noel Rosa)
06 – Três Apitos (Noel Rosa)
07 – Conversa de Botequim (Noel Rosa / Vadico)
08 – Com Que Roupa (Noel Rosa)

Our second Musidisc 10-inch feature three artists on a single album, As Tres Marias, a renowned female vocal trio in the 40’s to 50’s, the pianist Leal Brito, accompanied by a sextet and Catulo de Paula, making his debut on recordings.

This is Tres Marias, Leal Brito e Catulo de Paula – Baiao Nr. 2 (1953), for Musidisc. The kind of music you will hear at Baiao Nr. 2 is really disconnected with the “modern” Bossa Nova times we know up to the late 50’s until today. Tracks include:

01 – Onda do Mar (Leal Brito / Paulo Soledade) – TRES MARIAS
02 – Chuveu to Vortando (Catulo de Paula / Carlos Galindo) – CATULO DE PAULA
03 – Celeste no Baiao (Nilo Sergio) – LEAL BRITO
04 – Concerto no Baiao (adapt. Nilo Sergio / Leal Brito) – LEAL BRITO
05 – Ciranda no Baiao (adapt. Nilo Sergio) – LEAL BRITO
06 – Tico Tico de Campina (Jorge Faraj / Leal Brito) – TRES MARIAS
07 – Mania do Mane (Catulo de Paula / Carlos Galindo) – CATULO DE PAULA
08 – Baiao Moreno (Barriguinha / Caco Velho) – TRES MARIAS
