Tom Jobim, Eumir Deodato & Lindolpho Gaya - Apresenta (Love, Strings and Jobim)

Hello, good morning! I will be out of home tonight, that’s why I’m making this extraordinary post this morning. By the way, a extraordinary post of a unusual album recorded in 1966 by Elenco with the original title as “Antonio Carlos Jobim Apresenta” and reissued in 1975 as “Love, Strings and Jobim | The Eloquence of Antonio Carlos Jobim”, a lust and cheat title with Antonio Carlos Jobim holding his violao at the beach. I said cheat title? Sure! Let’s know why!

This is Eumir Deodato & Lindolpho Gaya – Love, Strings and Jobim | The Eloquence of Antonio Carlos Jobim (1966), for Elenco, featuring a constellation of Brazilian musicians with a single and important exception, which is Antonio Carlos Jobim that did not take part of this recording session. I’ve been wondering how many friends took this album as Antonio Carlos Jobim career record across four decades. Aloysio de Oliveira and Ray Gilbert’s idea was to introduce new artists to the American audience through Antonio Carlos Jobim popularity in US. Maestro Lindolpho Gaya and Eumir Deodato were invited to write the arrangements and to be credited as main performers, which is something that never happened. I’m crediting both as main performers at this post; at least Loronix makes it as originally conceived.

Lindolfo Gaya – Gaya (1970)

Maestro Lindolfo Gaya is without a doubt one of the greatest arrangers of Brazilian popular music. Most of the albums available at Loronix has Lindolfo Gaya as collaborator as arranger, producer and mainly by the years he was in service of Odeon and RCA Victor as Musical Director. In the other hand, Gaya solo albums are not well represented at Loronix, with a few exceptions. Let’s start gathering Maestro Gaya solo albums, this is the first, very different from what is expected by we use to know by him.

This is Lindolfo Gaya – Gaya (1970), for Odeon. I’ve been wondering today what Maestro Gaya and Odeon had in mind to release this album. It is very similar, or even based on the acclaimed Jose Briamonte – Briamonte Orchestra (1970), for Elenco, released in the same year and with the same concept of dancing orchestration with female chorus on top of blockbusters. Additionally, both albums share two tracks, Airport Love Theme and Tema de Cristina. Anyway, if you are a fan of Maestro Gaya, member of the legion of Briamonte Orchestra appreciators and also in the mood of a Erlon Chaves with Banda Veneno album, this is the flawless pick. Tracks include:

01 – Viagem (Taiguara)
02 – Airport Love Theme (A. Newmann)
03 – Let It Be (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)
04 – Tema de Cristina (José Briamonte)
05 – Reflections Of My Life (Campbell / McAleese)
06 – Yellow River (J. Christi)
07 – Close To You (H. David / Burt Bacharach)
08 – Marilyn’s Theme (V. Gambella / G. Brown)
09 – Something (George Harrison)
10 – Serenade In Blue (H. Waeen / M. Gordon)

This is a Caetano Rodrigues contribution that was waiting for a chance for a several weeks. Blame it on zecalouro for it. He kept on secret a wonderful and very hard to find LP, anyway, Christmas is coming and maybe he wants to release the some nice surprises to celebrate.

Meet, Sergio Ricardo & Lindolfo Gaya – Esse Mundo E Meu (OST) (1965), for Forma as FM-5. The collectors use to know by heart the identification code from the record labels that they like most, such as: ME-XX for Elenco, MOFB XXXX for Odeon, etc. I never had a request for this FM-5 OST, which is really surprising.

Esse Mundo E Meu is black and white movie picture directed by Sergio Ricardo that follows two men living in a Rio de Janeiro slum: a black shoe-shiner and a white mill worker. I never saw this movie and perhaps it is not available on DVD or VHS, but the soundtrack is nice with Sergio Ricardo compositions and Lindolfo Gaya arrangements. Personnel listing brings Ed Maciel, Wilson das Neves, among others. Tracks include:

01 – Cabocla Jandira (Lindolfo Gaya)
02 – Sonho (Sergio Ricardo / Lindolfo Gaya)
03 – Chorinho da Barbearia (Sergio Ricardo)
04 – Nem Fome (Sergio Ricardo)
05 – Tempestade (Lindolfo Gaya)
06 – Pregão (Sergio Ricardo)
07 – Oxalá Meu Pai (Lindolfo Gaya)
08 – Esse Mundo É Meu (Sergio Ricardo)
09 – Tempestade (II) (Lindolfo Gaya)
10 – Cabocla Jandira (Lindolfo Gaya)


Este disco pode ser buscado no Abracadabra e na Rádio Forma e Elenco do Martoni.

Hello, Good Night! This LP is the original soundtrack of a Musical number directed by Carlos Machado and performed in 1965 at The Golden Room of Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio de Janeiro. Correct me if I’m wrong, but LPs from the 60’s with OST are not common, which makes this a wonderful pick.

This is Lindolfo Gaya – Carlos Machado Apresenta, Rio de 400 Janeiros (1965), for Elenco. The last Os Cariocas release, Rio de Quatrocentas Bossas is in the same “spirit” of this one, the celebration of the 400 anniversary of Rio de Janeiro. I’m not sure how hard to find is this LP, but it is one of the most classy and produced Elenco release, beautiful cover artwork with a painting of an early Rio de Janeiro by Rugendas. Front cover and back cover are included in HI-RES. Special attention for the last track, Cidade Maravilhosa, it is the hymn of Rio de Janeiro City. Tracks include:

01 – “Bossa Nova” — Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes) — Blues Walk (C. Brown)
02 – Maxixe (Lindolfo Gaya)
03 – Samba do Avião (Tom Jobim)
04 – “Medlley Carmen Miranda” — O Que É Que a Baiana Tem (Dorival Caymmi) — Taí (Joubert de Carvalho) — Diz Que Tem (Vicente Paiva / Haníbal Cruz) — Good Bye Boy (Assis Valente)
05 – Valsa Debret (Lindolfo Gaya)
06 – Rio (Ary Barroso)
07 – Praça do Século XVII (Lindolfo Gaya / Chianca de Garcia)
08 – “Escola de Samba” — Tiradentes (Estanislau Silva / Décio Carlos / Penteado) — Chica da Silva (Anescar do Salgueiro / Noel Rosa de Oliveira) — Lá Vem Portela (Billy Blanco) — Exaltação à Mangueira (Enéas Brites da Silva / Aloísio Augusto da Costa)
09 – Polka (Lindolfo Gaya)
10 – Calendário (Vicente Paiva / Chianca de Garcia)
11 – Seresta Imperial (Lindolfo Gaya / Chianca de Garcia)
12 – Cidade Maravilhosa (André Filho)

Yesterday, the word lost the legendary Maestro Rogerio Duprat, producer for Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes, among many others. Rogerio Duprat was a key figure in the Tropicalia movement that revolutionized Brazilian music in the 60’s. In later years, he lived a reclusive life on a farm in Sao Paulo state.

This is Loronix tribute to Maestro Rogerio Duprat, LP Lindolfo Gaya e Rogerio Duprat – Os Maestros Premiados (1968), with Lindolfo Gaya e Sua Orquestra on tracks 01 to 06 and Rogerio Duprat e Sua Orquestra on tracks 07 to 12.
