Publicado em: Friday, December 07, 2007 by zecalouro
Hello, good evening! Let’s start today with he album scheduled to close the day, a major change on our agenda for this Thursday and you will understand the reason later tonight. This is an artist that I learn to respect and admire this year with the help of Loronix. I’m sure we have many others friends in the same situation. Olivia Byington LPs are really nice to hear and she always makes something different on each other. Let’s see.
This is Olivia Byington – Identidad (1982), for Som Livre, recorded between July and August of 1982 in the city of Havana, Cuba. According with Olivia Byington liner notes, she went to Cuba on year earlier to perform at Festival de Varadero, being invited to record this album one year later. I’m not sure about the availability of personnel information for this session; the album only brings references to the participation of Pablo Milanes and Frank Fernandez, Emiliano Salvador, Jose Bornot and Poveda as arrangers. The repertoire features a blend of Brazilian and songs with lyrics in Spanish. Tracks include:
01 – Fantasia (Chico Buarque)
02 – Procissão (Gilberto Gil)
03 – Yo Digo Que Las Estrellas (Silvio Rodrigues)
04 – Mãe (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)
05 – Soy Loco Por Ti, América (Gilberto Gil / Capinan)
06 – Perla Marina (Sindo Garay)
07 – Mi Son Entero (Juan Formell)
08 – Como Una Campana (Donato Poveda)
09 – De Que Callada Manera (Pablo Milanés / Nicolás Guillén)
10 – San Vicente (Milton Nascimento / Fernando Brant)
11 – Se Todos Fossem Iguais a Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
