When I was in Sao Paulo I heard for more than a few friends that I speak too much in Rio de Janeiro. It is natural, I live in Rio and I do it without knowing. I was not planning to make this post today and it is not only a given album with Sao Paulo at cover to make people happy, this is a great album and although made available before at the Acesso Raro and Orgy in Rhythm, I think it is widely unknown to Loronixers.

This is Cesar Mariano & Cia – Sao Paulo, Brasil (1977), for RCA Victor, a musical portrait of Sao Paulo City and the second Cesar Camargo Mariano solo LP, released eleven years after the first, Octeto de Cesar Camargo Mariano (1966). Each song is dedicated to a city attribute, such as: the subway, industries and others. Let’s see how Loronixers feedback this album. Tracks include:

Elis Regina e Conjunto de Cesar Camargo Mariano – Live in Tokyo (1979)

Publicado em: Friday, January 19, 2007 by zecalouro

I spoke with Caetano a few hours ago and I’m happy to made that call. Caetano remembered me an important date, Elis Regina passing twenty-five years ago. It seems it was yesterday. I remember this day, I was playing guitar at my grandfather’s house with a group of friend when the new came from someone who told us. I was very young to understand what would be Elis Regina’s passing along the forthcoming decades, but I got really sad, as I use to be everytime we heard about an artist passing.

Caetano said that would be a shame if Loronix does not make anything to remember Elis Regina and that’s what we decided to do. This is Elis Regina e Conjunto de Cesar Camargo Mariano – Ao Vivo em Tokyo (1979), for Loronix Records (I could not resist, sorry!). Actually, this is not an Elis Regina career record, but the recording of her performance with Cesar Camargo Mariano on a live presentation made in Tokyo, 1979. I received this recording from a friend and the quality is pretty good.

Conjunto de Cesar Camargo Mariano accompanies Elis Regina and includes Cesar Camargo Mariano (piano), Helio Delmiro (guitar), Luizao (bass), Paulinho Braga (drums) and Chico Batera (percussion). The cover artwork is by zecalouro. If someone can prepare a better one, we will be pleased; if possible, we can replace this one. No tracks this time, but you will have 41 minutes of Elis Regina on a recording that probably nobody could hear before.

Elis Regina deserves more, so I’m showing the first songs performed by Elis at Montreux Jazz Festival.

Before showing this release, I want to make an announcement that is very important to our Brazilian music community. Sabadabada.com had sometime earlier this week an update. This update came to my attention by the Bossanovadreamer, the connected German friend of Loronix.

But it was not an upgrade, we are talking about a *major* upgrade with approximately 75 new LP covers, bought on a single box a few years ago and forgot in a closet, according with Sabadabada own words. When I read that I ran quickly to my closet and nothing was found… The music was also updated with my highlights to Ruy Maurity – Safra/74 (1973), for Odeon and De Savoya – De Savoya (1972), for Polydor, De Savoya is Ed Lincoln.

That’s it Take a time to visit the updated Sabadabada.com, the Sanctuary of Bossa Nova, here. (http://sabadabada.com)

With this update, I could finally manage a quality cover for this release, Som Tres – Um e Pouco, Dois e Bom, Esse Som Tres e Demais (1969) for Odeon. The wait was worth; this cover is amazing with these 70’s clothes. It looks like they are dressed for a Bruce Lee movie.

Cesar Camargo Mariano arranges this LP and Som Tres is César Camargo Mariano (piano), Sabá (bass) and Toninho (drums). Tracks include:

01 – Tanga (Toninho / César Camargo Mariano)
02 – Trevo de 4 Folhas (I’m Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover) (M. Dixon / H. Woods)
03 – Love Letters (V. Young / E. Heyman) — Meu Nome É Gal (Roberto Carlos / Erasmo Carlos)
04 – Take It Easy My Brother Charles (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
05 – Teletema (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
06 – Spooky (M. Shapina / H. Middlebrooks / B. Bule / J. Cobb)
07 – Não Identificado (Caetano Veloso)
08 – O Meu Baião (César Camargo Mariano / Chico Anísio)
09 – Bird Brain (Henry Mancini)
10 – Só Faltava Você (Sabá)
11 – Horizonte (Luis Cláudio / Luis Fernando Fonseca)
12 – Um É Pouco Dois É Bom Este Som Três É Demais (Luis Cláudio / Luis Fernando Fonseca)

Toboga is the name of this LP from Cesar Camargo Mariano combo Som Tres, but is also the name of the slope these Three guys are having fun. I do not know how common was the toboga outside Brazil in the 70’s, but here it was real a mania.

1. Lôla (Lamartine Babo)
2. Irmãos Coragem (Nonato Buzar / Paulinho Tapajós)
3. Bajar no México (César Camargo Mariano)
4. Eu Já Tenho Você (César Camargo Mariano / Sabá)
