Marília Medalha & Vinícius De Moraes - A Canção E a Voz De Marília Medalha Na Poesia De Vinícius Moraes

Hello, good evening! One of the benefits of all the hard work to rescue the missing links is to observe Loronix archives with a critical eye. I’m surprised with the things I find there. Anthological albums, which with the passage of time have been forgotten by me, will from now a new chance to appear on the first page. However, they will only have a chance if I can manage something new to add, such as improved cover scans or a new transfer to justify the upgrade and make it attractive for everybody. I hope the tapestry that I have been pushing up and updating is being useful to follow up the work in progress. Anyway, things are getting better all the time.

I want to show you one of those great archive surprises that I forgot along time, featuring an artist that has been in evidence this year with an amazing album made in partnership with a giant, Vinicius de Moraes. Let’s see.

This is Marilia Medalha – A Cancao e a Voz de Marilia Medalha na Poesia de Vinicius de Moraes (1972), for RGE, frequently taken by mistake as a Vinicius de Moraes career LP, while he only plays the role of producer and composer, delivering also vocals in English with Marilia Medalha on track 05 – Mr. Toquinho. The great surprise here is that you will not find Vinicius de Moraes standards, but unknown compositions written by Marilia Medalha in partnership with Vinicius, including also two instrumental tracks, 06 – Sagarana and 12 – Distante, by Marilia Medalha. I think you will have high quality entertainment with this really unusual LP featuring arrangements by Edu Lobo and Chiquinho de Moraes. Tracks include:

01 – Se o Amor Pudesse (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Moinho D’água (Marília Medalha / Joãozinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Canção Para o Grande Amor (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Meu Tempo (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – Mr Toquinho (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes) with Vinicius de Moraes
06 – Sagarana (Marília Medalha)
07 – Ausência (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – Algum Lugar (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – Sem Razão de Ser (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
10 – Quem Ri Melhor (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
11 – Canção da Canção Que Nasceu (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – Distante (Marília Medalha)

This album is dedicated to our great friend Trix completing the advanced age of 21 this weekend. Trix has a deep knowledge of whatever you think about Brazilian music, no matter the decade or style and what amazes me most he has only 21. We need to ask him when he started his interest on music, quite a phenomenon. Trix also had a website, which is unfortunately no longer updated. This album was the last made available by Trix on his really nice TrixVinylRips. Let’s see.

This is Marilia Medalha – Boias de Luz (1978), for Continental, according with Trix, an outstanding album. I’m taking Trix review with English translation as Loronix homage to Trix and also an incentive to make him come back again with his website. Tracks include:

In 1978, Marilia Medalha launched Boias de Luz at Continental Label with arrangements by Dory Caymmi and Gonzaguinha. This album went unnoticed at that time, but is truly a masterpiece. Marilia Medalha became a famous singer with Festivais da Cancao performances with Edu Lobo and Momento 4uatro. Marilia never was an active performer, releasing only a couple of albums. In Boias de Luz, Marilia starts with a killing opening track 01 – Nos, Os Grandes Artistas (Luiz Gonzaga Jr.), delivering nice interpretations of Sambas from Ze Ketti, Abel Silva, Sueli Costa and others across this session. With no recording activity since 1992, Marilia Medalha has a great importance on Brazilian popular Music. We want her back! Thanks Trix!

Vinicius, Marilia Medalha e Toquinho – Como Dizia o Poeta… Musica Nova (1971)

Marilia Medalha took me by surprise a week ago when Loronixers gave a very good feedback on comments and downloads of her debut a LP for Philips. I decided to call her back to our community, not alone this time, but accompanied by two great Bossa Nova icons, Vinicius de Moraes and Toquinho.

This is Vinicius, Marilia Medalha e Toquinho – Como Dizia o Poeta… Musica Nova (1971), for RGE. It seems to be impossible for Vinicius de Moraes and Toquinho to make a regular album, perhaps even if they want to make it. They also have a special talent to bring Brazilian Divas for collaborations and make them shine, delivering their best. The repertoire features a couple of well-known songs by the duo, with highlights to Tarde em Itapoan, Como Dizia o Poeta and Na Tonga da Mironga do Kabulete, arrangements by Maestro Jose Briamonte. Musica Nova is that kind of album that saves your whole day if you take it for a hearing in the morning as your first thing you do. Tracks include:

01 – Tarde Em Itapoã (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Como Dizia o Poeta (Sobre o Adágio de Albinoni) (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Tomara (Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Valsa Para o Ausente (Vinicius de Moraes / Marília Medalha)
05 – Samba de Gesse (Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – A Tonga da Mironga do Kabuletê (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes) with Monsueto
07 – A Bênção Bahia (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – Mais Um Adeus (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – A Vez do Dombe (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
10 – O Grande Apelo (Vinicius de Moraes / Marília Medalha)
11 – Samba da Rosa (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – Melancia e Coco Verde (Vinicius de Moraes)

Here we go on an artist that really deserves more attention. Her first and only album available at Loronix was of a great success and I think this one will be really appreciated by Loronix. Marilia Medalha had a great start in the late 60’s, recording some albums, being an active participant on Festivais da Cancao also performing on TV shows, such as the legendary Ensaio Geral for TV Excelsior.

This is Marilia Medalha – Marilia Medalha (1968), for Philips, featuring arrangements by Maestro Rogerio Duprat and a participation of Edu Lobo as special guest on track 05 – Memorias de Marta Saré, which is the song Marilia Medalha got the second prize on Festival de Musica Popular Brasileira, 1968 edition. This is all I know about this album, which Maria Medalha delivers a sweet blend of Samba with Bossa Nova. Tracks include:

01 – Glória (Tom Zé)
02 – Arrependimento (Silvio Caldas / Cristóvão de Alencar)
03 – Jogo de Viola (João Alberto P. Soares / Paulinho do Pinho)
04 – Bonina (Caetano Veloso / Capinan)
05 – Memórias de Marta Saré (Edu Lobo / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with Edu Lobo
06 – São Paulo Meu Amor (Tom Zé)
07 – E o Mundo Não Se Acabou (Assis Valente)
08 – Canção de Marta e Romão (Edu Lobo / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri)
09 – Velho Tema (Sergio Ricardo)
10 – Pressentimento (Élton Medeiros / Hermínio Bello de Carvalho)
11 – Três Cavaleiros (Joyce)
