In spite of anything, Sao Paulo always kept a strong activity of instrumental bands and instrumental musicians during several decades, there are several examples at Loronix to confirm this statement, such as Banda Paulistana, Grupo D’Alma, among many others. Once in a while, I get in touch with something new from Sao Paulo, such like this band, Brasil 4 Ever, kindly sent by the very good friends of SOJAZZ. Let’s see.This is Brasil 4 Ever – Brasil 4 Ever (1980), for Continental, featuring a quartet of bass, guitar, piano and drums with well-known special guests, such like Laercio de Freitas and Felpudo. Brazil 4 Ever delivers soulful renditions of a repertoire based mostly on Brazilian music and it is delicious to hear. Felpudo’s trombone really dominates the session delivering beautiful solos. Benutti made this awesome vinyl transfer, which is probably SOJAZZ chief engineer. Tracks include:

Hello, Good Evening! Do not miss Loronix party at Drink Cafe, Lagoa, Rio de Janeiro. If you are out of Rio, use your frequent flyer balance and come to the party, no transportation costs. Just kidding, I spoke with Kiko Continentino and he loved the idea of gathering Loronixers to his gig with Paulinho Guitarra, once in a lifetime opportunity to watch a nice instrumental music concert and get along with Loronixers.

Let’s start the day with an album that features two great musicians and it is all about party with nice female vocals and scats.

This is Mario Castro Neves & Messias – The Wonderful Latin American Sound of Brazil (1967), for RCA Victor. What you read is what you get, this is an album by the brother of the Legendary Oscar Castro Neves, Mario Castro Neves and the Brazilian guitar player Messias, a musician that people cannot stop talking about since Caetano sent us his tribute album to Antonio Carlos Jobim. This is not instrumental music, but a collection of Bossa Nova tunes backed up by a nice piano, bass, drums and guitar group and lyrics sung by girls. Tracks include:

01 – Candomblé (Edmundo Souto / Danilo Caymmi / Paulo Antônio)
02 – Yearning Lovers (Mário Castro Neves / Sarita)
03 – Nanã (Moacir Santos / Mário Telles)
04 – De Brincadeira (Edmundo Souto / Danilo Caymmi)
05 – Bye Bye Blackbird (R. Henderson / M. Dixon)
06 – E Nada Mais (Durval Ferreira / Luis Fernando Freire)
07 – Keep Talking (Donato / Crystal)
08 – Vem Balançar (Walter Santos / Tereza Souza)
09 – Once More (Thais do Amaral)
10 – Morte de Um Deus do Sal (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
11 – Tá Por Fora (Wilson Simonal / Chico Feitosa)
12 – Corcovado (Tom Jobim)
13 – Carolina (Chico Buarque)
14 – Costa Brava (Mario Castro Neves / Chico Feitosa)
15 – Rosa Morena (Dorival Caymmi)
16 – Estrada do Sol (Antonio Carlos Jobim / Dolores Duran)

Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Bili e Martoni, ele agora pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma e Elenco. Depois que ouvi o disco e lendo os comentários originais, vi que este disco é praticamente idêntico (apenas uma música a mais, “Bye Bye Blackbird”) ao disco “Mario Castro Neves & Samba SA” publicado anteriormente aqui. De fato, parece que o Zeca se confundiu e publicou o disco errado. Pesquisando na internet, achei a listagem abaixo para as músicas do “The Wonderful Latin American Sound of Brazil” (http://www.vh1.com/artists/az/castro_neves_mario/albums.jhtml?albumId=755685 ):

01. Candomblé
02. Summer Samba (Samba de Verão)
03. Corcovado
04. The Girl from Ipanema
05. Costa Brava
06. One Note Samba
07. Road to the Sun
08. Desafinado
09. Nãna
10. A Felicidade
11. Rosa Morena
12. Samba de Orfeu

Parece que o disco seria uma compilação com faixas do “Mario Castro Neves & Samba SA” e de outros discos do Messias (a maioria é do “O Melhor de Antonio Carlos Jobim interpretado por Messias” e outras não consegui identificar de onde vieram).  Pelo fato de estarmos com o disco errado, ele vai para a categoria “com defeito” .





Messias – Messias e a Musica de Chico Buarque de Hollanda (1967)

This is a non-planned post, not supposed to be released today, but I could not keep waiting longer. I cannot remember by heart a similar acclamation received by the first Messias LP, Messias – O Melhor de Antonio Carlos Jobim Interpretado por Messias (1968), a fantastic contribution of Caetano Rodrigues. The effort made to bring more information about Messias by Loronixers was also great, now we know much more and there is more to come, if you check Bossa On-Line you will see several obscure Messias albums that are not that easy to find and were probably released in Japan.

This is Messias – Messias e a Musica de Chico Buarque de Hollanda (1967), for RCA Victor, Messias debut LP. By the cover artwork, Messias had probably teamed with Chico Buarque for the recording session. This album is the outcome of the collaboration between Loronix andMicrogrooves of Simon Boutman, which I want to say thanks for making available his music to our community. Tracks include:

Personnel

Messias
(guitar)
Renato Mendes
(organ)
Jovito
(drums)
Rosario
(picolo) * kind of flute
Renato de Oliveira and Diltinho
(trombone)
Boneca
(flute)
Laercio
(piano, flute)
Glayber
(harmonica)
Mario Casali
(vibes)

Track List

01 – Tem Mais Samba (Chico Buarque)
02 – A Banda (Chico Buarque)
03 – A Rita (Chico Buarque)
04 – Madalema Foi Pro Mar (Chico Buarque)
05 – Juca (Chico Buarque)
06 – Olê Olá (Chico Buarque)
07 – Noite dos Mascarados (Chico Buarque)
08 – Você Não Ouviu (Chico Buarque)
09 – Sonho de Um Carnaval (Chico Buarque)
10 – Será Que Cristina Volta (Chico Buarque)
11 – Meu Refrão (Chico Buarque)
12 – Amanhã Ninguém Sabe (Chico Buarque)

Messias – O Melhor de Antonio Carlos Jobim Interpretado por Messias (1968)

Woow! Another Brazilian guitar player that I never heard just knew this cover at Caetano’s Bossa Nova book. Sometimes I fell shamed when I say that I don’t know a given artist made available at Loronix. Messias recorded only three albums between 1967 and 1969, a three-year recording career. I could not search what happened with Messias since then, even spoke with Caetano about his, but this record is truly amazing and you will probably stay on that mood of finding information about Messias after your first hearing.

This is Messias – O Melhor de Antonio Carlos Jobim Interpretado por Messias (1968), for RCA Candem. Messias Tribute to Tom and his first LP was also a tribute, to Chico Buarque de Holanda. Liner notes says Messias recorded this album as a request from the Japanese RCA subsidiary, this is a important credential, shows that Messias had even a reputation outside of Brazil. This is not a guitar only album, a combo accompanies Messias, delivering a respectful Samba Jazz beat on top of Messias guitar and Antonio Carlos Jobim compositions. Personnel is not credited. Tracks include:

01 – Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Corcovado (Tom Jobim)
03 – Só Danço Samba (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
04 – Desafinado (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
05 – Insensatez (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – Felicidade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – Meditação (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
08 – Água de Beber (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – Dindi (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
10 – Samba de Uma Nota Só (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
