Paulinho Da Viola - A Dança da solidão


Paulinho da Viola is one of the artists that I learned to admire before I created Loronix. I cannot imagine how it would be my current relationship with Samba without Paulinho da Viola. He makes the perfect connection between Samba and any other Brazilian music style through the quality of his compositions, soulful interpretation, choice of repertoire and his perfect instrument playing, moving transparently between songs and instrumental themes. If someone wants to understand Samba, Paulinho da Viola is the starting point. Period.
This is Paulinho da Viola – A Danca da Solidao (1972), for Odeon, featuring Paulinho da Viola singing her own compositions and selected cuts by top-notch Samba composers, like Monarco, Nelson Sargento, Cartola, Wilson Baptista and others. Lindolfo Gaya is in charge of arrangements and Odeon did not credit musicians. Tracks include:

01 – Guardei Minha Viola (Paulinho da Viola)
02 – Meu Mundo É Hoje (Eu Sou Assim) (Wilson Batista / José Batista)
03 – Papelão (Geraldo das Neves)
04 – Duas Horas da Manhã (Nelson Cavaquinho / Ari Monteiro)
05 – Ironia (Paulinho da Viola)
06 – No Pagode do Vavá (Paulinho da Viola)
07 – Dança da Solidão (Paulinho da Viola)
08 – Acontece (Cartola)
09 – Coração Imprudente (Paulinho da Viola / Capinan)
10 – Orgulho (Paulinho da Viola / Capinan)
11 – Falso Moralista (Nelson Sargento)
12 – Passado de Glória (Monarco)

My turntable has a serious problem with singles and EPs. Even when playing clean albums, the cartridge jumps and I had no choice except turn it of and try to understand what happens. This one was sent by Dona Iara and for my surprise it works very well and the output was so good that it was not necessary to apply noise reduction software. Perhaps my turntable is a big Paulinho da Viola fan, such like me. Let’s see.

This is Paulinho da Viola – Sinal Fechado (1969) EP, for Odeon, featuring the awesome title track 01 – Sinal Fechado with other three cuts, including the blockbuster 02 – Foi um Rio que Passou em Minha Vida, a well-known Paulinho da Viola composition. I did not search for the availability of these songs on regular Paulinho da Viola albums. Tracks include:

01 – Sinal Fechado (Paulinho da Viola)
02 – Foi Um Rio Que Passou Em Minha Vida (Paulinho da Viola)
03 – Ruas Que Sonhei (Paulinho da Viola)
04 – Nada De Novo (Paulinho da Viola)


Todas as músicas deste EP estão contidas no LP “Foi um Rio que Passou em Minha Vida” que pode ser buscado aqui no Órfãos do Loronix.

Conjunto A Voz do Morro – Roda de Samba (1965)

Publicado em: Sunday, July 08, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Evening! I’m late and in a big rush today, another great sunny day in Rio de Janeiro. I made an attempt to go to the beach today, my first attempt after a decade or so. The results were… Well, I will tell you later, let’s be straightforward with the first post, a Samba post and a “classic” Samba album provided by the mysterious Samba contributor, featuring several Brazilian Samba Legends.

This is Conjunto A Voz do Morro – Roda de Samba (1965), for Musidisc. Such like “Os Cinco Crioulos” released last week, this is a fantastic Samba record that makes you think it was released earlier than its first issue, 1965. Conjunto A Voz do Samba recorded three albums before dismissing and this is the first. The formation varies on each album, but each one brings a constellation of Samba artists. There is a curious story about this first, although the legendary Ze Ketti was the leader of Conjunto A Voz do Morro, he did not took part in this set due his contractual obligations with Philips and his involvement with the launching of Show Opiniao with Nara Leao. Tracks include:

PersonnelZé Keti
Paulinho da Viola
Élton Medeiros
Jair do Cavaquinho
Anescar do Salgueiro
Ze da Cruz

Track List

01 – Pecadora (Joãozinho) – Jair do Cavaquinho
02 – Intriga (Anescar do Salgueiro) – Anescar do Salgueiro
03 – Mascarada (Zé Keti / Élton Medeiros) – Élton Medeiros
04 – Coração Vulgar (Paulinho da Viola) – Paulinho da Viola
05 – Conversa de Malandro (Paulinho da Viola) – Zé da Cruz
06 – Peço Licença (Zé Keti) – Paulinho da Viola
07 – Vai Saudade (Anescar do Salgueiro) – Anescar do Salgueiro
08 – Jurar Com Lágrimas (Paulinho da Viola) – Paulinho da Viola
09 – Maria (Zé Keti) – Jair do Cavaquinho
10 – Coração de Ouro (Élton Medeiros / Joacyr Santana) – Élton Medeiros
11 – Não Sou Feliz (Zé Keti) – Paulinho da Viola
12 – Injúria (Cartola / Élton Medeiros) – Élton Medeiros
13 – Sonho Triste (Jair do Cavaquinho) – Jair do Cavaquinho
14 – Meu Viver (Élton Medeiros / Jair do Cavaquinho / Kleber Santos) – Élton Medeiros

Paulinho da Viola – Nervos de Aco (1973)

Publicado em: Monday, July 02, 2007 by zecalouro

This is the best moment to show a masterpiece to Loronixers. The last post of Sunday will cross the whole Monday, which is Loronix busiest day. This is probably one of the best albums I have heard this year and I’m very thankful to the mysterious Samba contributor for dragging my attention to Paulinho da Viola.

We had a previous and pretty recent release, Memorias Chorando, which is Paulinho da Viola playing instrumental music. Now it is time to meet Paulinho da Viola singing. Nervos de Aco is solid, you get hooked at the first second and it is all about feelings, passion and beauty. It is worth checking.

This is Paulino da Viola – Nervos de Aco (1973), for Odeon. The cover artwork says a lot about Nervos de Aco. We never know what are the feelings of an artist that are directly associated with their albums, but I’m convinced that Paulinho da Viola feels everything inside this record, pure beauty and mastery arranged and played by a constellation of Brazilian musicians. I could describe this album track by track with great pleasure, but I decided to give you the pleasures of find it out alone. Tracks include:


Paulinho da Viola, Copinha, Cristovao Bastos, Lindolfo Gaya, Nelsinho

(flute, clarinet)
Cristovao Bastos
(percussion, bass)
Elton Medeiros
Paulinho da Viola
(violao, cavaquinho, voice)

Track List

01 – Sentimentos (Mijinha)
02 – Comprimido (Paulinho da Viola)
03 – Não Leve a Mal (Paulinho da Viola)
04 – Nervos de Aço (Lupicínio Rodrigues)
05 – Roendo as Unhas (Paulinho da Viola)
06 – Não Quero Mais Amar a Ninguém (Zé da Zilda / Cartola / Carlos Cachaça)
07 – Nega Luzia (Wilson Batista / Jorge de Castro)
08 – Cidade Submersa (Paulinho da Viola)
09 – Sonho de Um Carnaval (Chico Buarque)
10 – Choro Negro (Paulinho da Viola / Fernando Costa)

Publicado em: Saturday, June 23, 2007 by zecalouro

I’m paralyzed by this record and if you want to be surprised as I was, please don’t read for this point and come back later after hearing. In spite of being widely recognized a Samba composer and interpreter, Paulinho da Viola has a strong connection with instrumental music since he was born. Paulinho da Viola is the son of Cesar Faria, acclaimed guitar player, member of Epoca de Ouro — Jacob do Bandolim group – for decades.

Memorias Chorando is an instrumental only album, an excellent Choro LP, perhaps Paulinho da Viola tribute to his father Cesar Faria (playing violao in all tracks) and to his musician background, mostly based on choro.

This is Paulinho da Viola – Memorias Chorando (1976), for Odeon, featuring Paulinho da Viola top-notch cavaquinho playing on renditions to classic choros and compositions by his own. Paulinho da Viola is very well accompanied in the set that features Cesar Faria, Copinha, Cristovao Bastos, Elton Medeiros and many others, see personnel listing for details. I’m sending with the music the always-fantastic work of Elifas Andreato, which is the same available at the panorama bellow in high resolution. Tracks include:

PersonnelPaulinho da Viola
Cesar Faria
Cristovao Bastos
Elton Medeiros and Chaplin

Track List

01 – Cinco Companheiros (Pixinguinha)
02 – Chorando (Ary Barroso)
03 – Cuidado Colega (Benedito Lacerda / Pixinguinha)
04 – Romanceando (Paulinho da Viola)
05 – Cochichando (Pixinguinha / Alberto Ribeiro / João de Barro)
06 – Rosinha Essa Menina (Paulinho da Viola)
