I was challenged today by our friend Francesca to present a good “vintage Batucada LP”, according with her own words. Just want to say that there are several batucadas available at Loronix archives. What are the archives? Easy, the archives are a series of links on the right side of your screen that will lead you to the old Loronix posts, they are organized by weeks, so pick up a week and you will see several other LPs. This tip is not for you, Francesca; it is for all Loronixers that recently joined us.

I will try to please everybody with an album that has a great cover, let’s see. This is Jadir de Castro – Jadir no Samba (1962), for Pawal, the debut LP of this Brazilian drummer and percussionist and also composer of several songs, including the legendary Samba do TelecoTeco. Jadir de Castro had an active international career in the 50’s being also an actor in some movies and inventor of some original percussion instruments, as you can see in the cover, he mixes standard drumming with Afro percussion. Tracks include:

01 – Lição de Baião (Jadir de Castro / Daniel Marechal)
02 – Josepha (Jadir de Castro / Julio Pamies)
03 – Pourquoi (Jadir de Castro / Caco Velho)
04 – Baratin (Jadir de Castro)
05 – Samba do Ziriguidum (Jadir de Castro / Luis Bittencourt)
06 – O Vento Contou de Nós (Hércio Expedicto / Laércio Vieira)
07 – Percussão (Jadir de Castro)
08 – Imbraúna (Jadir de Castro / Nena Caboclo)
09 – Pescando Robalo (Octacilio T. de Castro / José M. Pinto)
10 – Jadir no Samba (Jadir de Castro)
11 – Ao Chegar Em Lisboa (Jadir de Castro / Édison Marinho)
12 – Samba na Passarela (Luis Gonçalves / Nilton Valle / A. Lima)


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Amilcar e Martoni, ele agora pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma e Elenco.
