It is hard to write about this post and this band. The first Os Diagonais was released on the very beginning of Loronix and was responsible for bringing many friends to Loronix. It has been more than three months since then and it is a great pleasure to present Os Diagonais first LP to the fans of this legendary group.

Os Diagonais started in 1964 as Bossa Trio. They had a very short career, recoding several singles, this first LP in 1969 and the last one in 1971, making a mix of Samba and Soul music blended with nice vocal harmonies. Among several members during these years, it is very easy to highlight several names that became later renowned artists, such as: Cassiano, Luizao, Hyldon, Osmar Milito, among others. Tracks include:

01 – Baby Baby (Santos Dumont)
02 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso) — Helena Helena (Antônio Almeida / Constantino Silva “Secundino”)
03 – Não Dá Pra Entender (Cassiano)
04 – Solução (Raul Sampaio / Ivo Santos) — Cabelos Brancos (Marino Pinto / Herivelto Martins)
05 – Meu Sonho É Você (Altamiro Carrilho / Átila Nunes) — Sabe Deus (Sabrá Dios) (Álvaro Carrillo / Vrs. Nely B. Pinto) 06 – Meu Cariri (Rosil Cavalcanti / Dilú Mello)
07 – Clarimunda (Cassiano)
08 – Praça Onze (Herivelto Martins / Grande Otelo) — Bat Macumba (Gilberto Gil / Caetano Veloso)

Cassiano is a popular Brazilian composer, being active from the 60’s to 70’s. Cassiano started hisprofessional career joining the last Bossa Trio formation, which became later on Os Diagonais.

According with the reviewers and specialists, Cassiano was a precursor of Brazilian soul music, influencing everything that came before, such as: Tim Maia, Banda Black Rio, etc.

This album is second out of two LPs released by Os Diagonais, Cada um na Sua (1971). It is a cult and hard to find vinyl.

It is a relaxed and pleasant album; very similar to the early Roberto Carlos releases under Brazilian Jovem Guarda movement. Perfect for a Friday,

Well, this is at least what zecalouro thinks, may be he is wrong, anyway…
