Here we go with the International Bossa Nova, by Caetano Rodrigues. This is really the most exciting and unpredictable post of the day, which is not the case of this one, I’m sure this album will hit the ceiling making the happiness of several friends. Let’s see another Caetano’s treasure.

That’s it. The feedback received from Muchacho nas Bocas, Hermeto Pascoal Video and Miscelanea Vanguardiosa PodCast was really great. I’m happy when Loronixers are pleased with zecalouro’s posts. However, zecalouro pleases Loronixers and Caetanon Rodrigues drives people crazy, let’s get back on track with another fine release sponsored by Caetano Rodrigues, The Great.

This is Lalo Schifrin & Bob Brookmeyer – Samba para Dos (1963), for Verve. Someone said before that Lalo Schifrin early works dedicated to the Bossa Nova repertoire were worth to dig. I can’t remember the friend’s name and he was absolutely right. This is a very nice record with the piano of Lalo Schifrin and the trombone of Bob Brookmeyer supported by renowned artists, such as Phil Woods, Al Cohn and others. Overall personnel makes more that an accompaniment, they have also the spotlights with several solos throughout the record. Thanks for it, Caetano, people should be really amazed by this album. Tracks include:


Romeo Penque
Ben Tucker
Phil Woods
(sax alto)
Al Cohn
(sax tenor)
Danny Bank
(sax baritone)
Lalo Schifrin
Bob Brookmeyer
(piano, trombone)
Jimmy Raney
Jerome Richardson
(sax tenor)
Leo Wright
(flute, sax alto)
Dave Bailey
Frank Rehak
