If you were already a Loronixer in October 2006, you will easily remember this singer and the great feedback given to her debut LP, Celeste – Cinco e Triste da Manha (1978), for Tapecar. Since then, several friends are requesting another release. I admit that I loose my hope. In spite of being an acclaimed singer, with enthusiastic statements of Ricardo Cravo Albin, Joao Roberto Kelly and Joao Gilberto, who said she had one of the most beautiful voices he have ever heard, Celeste recorded only three albums in the late 70’s and disappear from the mainstream.

However, Loronixers are very tuned with the wants and needs of our community, always surprising me. That’s exactly what happened today, a couple of new great friends from Salvador, Bahia, sent this very hard to find album in the FLAC format. It is the first contribution in FLAC and a great addition to Loronix.

Let’s say thank you to Gabriel and Sergio Benutti, these guys are respectable vinyl collectors in Salvador and also very knowledgeable on Jazz and Brazilian music. They run a website that is already available at our blogroll, the excellent SOJAZZ. You will spend hours there. SOJAZZ is available at www.sojazz.org.br.

This is Celeste – Laco de Cobra (1979), for Odeon, featuring the soulful Brazilian singer Celeste, supported by the arrangements of Geraldo Vespar and Helio Delmiro with production by Renato Correa and Geraldo Vespar. Take a special attention to tracks 04 – Saudade da Bahia and 08 – Procura-se, both written by a very early Rosa Passos. Thanks once again, Gabriel and Sergio Benutti. Tracks include:

01 – Laço de Cobra (Nilton Barros)
02 – Nanã (Moacir Santos / Mário Telles)
03 – Recado (Gonzaguinha)
04 – Saudade da Bahia (Fernando de Oliveira / Rosa Passos)
05 – Velho Arvoredo (Hélio Delmiro / Paulo César Pinheiro)
06 – Nos Horizontes do Mundo (Paulinho da Viola)
07 – Homenagem ao Malandro (Chico Buarque)
08 – Procura-se Um Samba (Fernando de Oliveira / Rosa Passos)
09 – Samba Dobrado (Djavan)
10 – Sampa (Caetano Veloso)
11 – Mandamento (Gisa Nogueira)
12 – A Primeira Vez (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide” / Armando “Marçal”)

Let’s start reading a statement of Joao Gilberto about the singer Celeste, he said: “É uma das mais belas vozes que já escutei” (It is one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard). Joao Gilberto would not say something like this for nothing.

This is Celeste – Cinco e Triste da Manha (1978), the debut LP of a singer acclaimed by musicians and reviews that never had a public acceptance accordingly. Cinco e Triste da Manha is arranged by J.T. Meirelles and Chiquinho de Moraes. For reasons that I could not check, Celeste is almost forgotten in Brazil, but not for my friends at Loronix, at least from now on. Tracks include:

01 – Serrado (Djavan)
02 – Pó (Fafy / Sarah Benchimol)
03 – Cinco e Triste da Manhã (Silvio Silva / Fernando César)
04 – Dupla Traição (Djavan)
05 – Sonhos (Peninha)
06 – Ronda Tristeza (Tranka)
07 – Amor a Três (Roberto Correia / Jon Lemos / Eros)
08 – Foi Assim (Paulo André / Ruy Barata)
09 – Como Posso Saber (Djavan)
10 – Vergonha É Não Lutar (Kiko)
11 – Sinal de Solidão (Tranka / Jenny)
12 – Teia de Aranha (Elizabeth)
