Charlie Byrd and this Amazing cover at Loronix, just on top of my place. zecalouro would have a cardiac arrest with this thing in the real life. Parrots sometimes have problems with Macaws. Charlie Byrd seems to be a great friend of birds, in spite of Brazilian Byrd cover with Charlie Byrd smoking in front of a Macaw, bad example, Mr. Byrd. Thanks a million Caetano to make my day and the day of a thousand of Loronixers.

This is Charlie Byrd with Orchestra – More Brazilian Byrd (1967), for Columbia. Charlie Bird is an artist that deserves a special place; he was of a great help to introduce the music from Brazil for the mass United States audiences in the 60’s. This record is really captivating, subtle, gentle played and very sophisticated with the orchestral arrangements by Tom Newsom. Caetano endorses this album, which is amazingly out of print, to every Loronixer. I do the same and Mr. D&C also agrees. Tracks include:

01 – One Note Samba
02 – Weekend in Guaruja
03 – Little Boat
04 – Pretty Butterfly
05 – Berimbau
06 – Agua de Beber
07 – Jequibau
08 – How Insensitive
09 – Esperando o Sol
10 – Felicidade
11 – Foi a Saudade


Este disco pode ser buscado no Um que Tenha. Outra alternativa é a Rádio Forma e Elenco do Martoni.

Although zecalouro lives around guitars and basses, it is a false statement to say that zecalouro he is a musician. If you are beginning your career as a musician, take care of records like this Brazilian Soul, with Laurindo Almeida and Charlie Byrd (1981).

Stay away if you don’t want to listen to music that your will never be good enough to reach their level of playing, big issue for zecalouro.

Run to the cashier if you are confident and want to listen to something that will be your reference for many years.

Brazilian Soul is the first release out of 4 between Laurindo Almeida and the legendary Charlie Byrd, making a quartet on this one with Bob Magnusson (bass) and Milt Holland (percussion). There are nice melodies and high quality guitar techniques that should be rewarding for musician and fans.

The set is full of Bossa Nova classics from Jobim and Brazilian classical pieces. The song Don’t Cry for me Argentina closes the set and seems to be out of place, but works fine.
