Publicado em: Tuesday, May 22, 2007 by zecalouro
This is the close of this special celebration to Caetano’s birthday and I want to say that it was a special day with a grand finale. We got it! The previous Fogueira Tres and Sinter album will be mailed to Caetano, he does not have both on his collection. I think we made the impossible today.
Speaking about the impossible, this is another jewel that many collectors I know at Loronix are tracking down and was sent by Andrea Castro Neves, daughter of Mario Castro Neves, a fantastic friend of Loronix that will have a special place on this website from now on. Andrea and Mario sent this album to homage Caetano Rodrigues, best of both worlds, this is a truly amazing album that I could not stop listening to it since Andrea sent to us earlier today. Thanks Andrea and thanks Mario Castro Neves.
This is Mario Castro Neves and His Orchestra – Brazilian Mood (1973), recorded in London, UK, for Decca. Brazilian mood is solid from the start to the end, pretty self-explanatory, take a special attention to the Helena and I, it will sound familiar to you since it was included on a 1999 compilation “A Trip To Brazil Vol. 2: Bossa & Beyond”, dragging the attention of people from the acid-jazz scene. Mario Castro Neves leads and conducts an orchestra, playing also piano. Thanks Andrea, perfect gift you sent for Loronix community, I’m pleased and sure Loronixer will be also pleased with this fantastic release. Tracks include:
01 – Xaxado Blues (Mario Castro Neves)
02 – Watch What Happens (Michel Legrand / Norman Gimbel)
03 – The Whole Mess (Mario Castro Neves)
04 – The Look of Love (Burt Bacharach / Hal David)
05 – Macumba Mood (Mario Castro Neves)
06 – Loud and Clear (Mario Castro Neves)
07 – Hold my Hand (Mario Castro Neves)
08 – Helena and I (Mario Castro Neves)
09 – Wave (Antonio Carlos Jobim)
10 – Call me Up (Mario Castro Neves)
Last minute info: gpicanco has just sent to zecalouro the cover artwork of three albums that he is sending to Caetano Rodrigues as birthday gift. Thanks gpicanco, I don’t need to ask you if they are candidate or not to be Loronixided in a near future. Caetano will be amazed tomorrow morning.
