I think that just a quick look at the cover and post title is enough to realize that this is another obscure, rare and amazing Caetano Rodrigues release. Very nice release. The first time I heard the name “Os Infernais da Bossa” was on that vinyl fair in Sao Paulo, Caetano told be. You are always learning something with Caetano. He said also that all LPs from this record label Exitos are very hard to find. I was invited and accepted the mission to participate on a hunt of more Exitos records. If you see other LP released by Exitos let us know.

This is the first and already legendary release from Exitos at Loronix, meet Os Infernais da Bossa – E Balanco (N/A), for Exitos, a very nice instrumental session full of brass arrangements by Maestro Nelsinho with a fine repertoire of Bossa Nova classics that provide a guaranteed entertainment at a first hearing.

Before introducing the musicians, I want to say that I’m here with the cover and back cover with no personnel information and a handwritten message from Caetano with personnel listing. The question is, how Caetano knows such things? I have been searching and talking with several friends about this personnel list and suddenly, Caetano has it ready and complete. Anyway, appreciate personnel listing, so good that I think it is the first time we have together Juarez Araujo, Astor Silva and Ed Maciel. Tracks include:
