If you take this album for a listen, I’m sure you will agree with me, it is a masterpiece, even if you do not appreciate the Choro genre. It was released in September 2006 and probably did not get much attention of the new Loronixers. I was not satisfied with the quality of the first issue, based on 96Kbps MP3s and now we have cover scans — front and back, personnel listing, 320Kbps and FLAC files alternative. This artist really deserves the attention of every serious Brazilian music listener.

This is K-Ximbinho – Saudades de um Clarinete (1981), for Eldorado, featuring the legendary Sebastiao de Barros, widely known as K-Ximbinho. Paulo Moura says K-Ximbinho was the most original instrumentalist in service of Choro, Jazz and Regional music in Brazil, being also a composer and arranger. This album was recorded just before K-Ximbinho passing and I have been tracking down the previous ones for a year. They were released in the late 50’s and early 60’s. If you have one, feel free to get in touch. Tracks include:

Ipanema Pop Orchestra – Bossa Nova Meets USA (1965)

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
11 – Days Of Wine And Roses (Henry Mancini / Mercer) arrangements: K-Ximbinho
12 – Hello Dolly (J. Herman) arrangements: K-Ximbinho
