I received two emails asking why Elizeth Cardoso, Zimbo Trio and Jacob do Bandolim LP is divided in four different files, the reason is quite simple, it is a double LP and was record with the always requested 320Kbps. That’s why it was splitted on that way. This should not be a barrier to listen to that legendary record that really worth the download with four parts.

Anyway, remember the first Ipanema Pop Orchestra LP released with the help of Caetano Rodrigues? I’m sure that everybody remembers, it was very successful, featuring three Brazilian arrangers, Luiz Eça, Eumir Deodato and Maestro Cipo. They are now back, with different arrangers and the same concept.

This is Ipanema Pop Orchestra – Bossa Nova Meets USA (1965), for London, featuring the Brazilian arrangers Cipo, J.T. Meirelles and K-Ximbinho, one of my favorite artists that unfortunately released a few records, all very hard to find. It is late at night down here and I do not want to get much of your attention this time, stay with Bossa Nova Meets USA. Tracks include:

01 – Charade (Henry Mancini / Mercer) arrangements: Cipo
02 – Tonight (L. Bernstein / S. Sondheim) arrangements: J.T. Meirelles
03 – Witchcraft (C. Coleman / C. Leigh) arrangements: Cipo
04 – Tender Is The Night (S. Fain / Paul Francis Webster) arrangements: Cipo
05 – Call Me Irresponsible (S. Cahn / J. V. Heusen) arrangements: Cipo
06 – I Let My Heart In San Francisco (D. Cross / G. Cory) arrangements: Cipo
07 – I Could Have Danced All Night (F. Loewe / A. J. Lerner) arrangements: Cipo
08 – Moon River (Henry Mancini / Mercer) arrangements: Cipo
09 – All The Way (S. Cahn / J. V. Heusen) arrangements: Cipo
10 – It Had Better Be Tonight (Henry Mancini / Mercer) arrangements: J.T. Meirelles

If you are looking at this cover thinking something like: “Oh! No! Another of those Bossa Nova for “tourists” with a woman on a bikini…” I agree 100% with you. This is the first reaction I had when I look at this cover. However, Caetano Rodrigues sent this LP to Loronixers, so I decided to call Caetano and ask the reason for such record. Caetano said: “It is VERY good!!!” When Caetano says it is very good, it is excellent.

This is The Ipanema Pop Orchestra – Bossa Nova for Swinging Lovers (1965), for London, an obscure Brazilian studio only group with not credited players, but the arrangers are Maestro Cipo, Eumir Deodato and Luiz Eca giving their best on twelve selected Bossa Nova standards. I would like to know the musicians on the set… I’m wondering if Eca plays the piano. Who has this answer? Anyway, an enjoyable album that you should investigate. As I said, don’t let the cover and the title cheats you, it is great and magnificent. Tracks include:

01 – O Barquinho (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
02 – Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Insensatez (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Vivo Sonhando (Tom Jobim)
05 – Amor e Paz (Tito Madi)
06 – Rio (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
07 – Desafinado (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
08 – Consolação (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – Samba de Uma Nota Só (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
10 – Corcovado (Tom Jobim)
11 – Berimbau (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – Meditação (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
