Raul De Souza - Til Tomorrow Comes

I said yesterday that we would have Samba albums today, but I changed my mind to show a Raul de Souza album that never had a CD reissue. Although not a Samba album, Til Tomorrow Comes will make you kick around the house, since it seeks harmony with the moment experience by the music in the late 70’s, especially in the year of 1979, where disco music dominated the charts in US and abroad. This is essentially a disco music album, it has nothing to do with jazz, and it is very important to understand this concept before jumping into it. Let’s see.

This is Raul de Souza – Til Tomorrow Comes (1979), for Capitol, the third out of three albums released by Raulzinho at Capitol, following the acclaimed Sweet Lucy and Don’t Ask My Neighbors, both produced by George Duke and also never released in CD. Actually, George Duke’s production is what differs Til Tomorrow Comes, produced by Arthur Wright, which is probably responsible for this first and only Raul de Souza disco music experience. Personnel listing features only American musicians with a single and very important exception, Maestro Moacir Santos playing sax with no individual track credits. Tracks include:


James Gadson, Edward Greene
David T. Walker, Greg Poree, Arthur Wright
Greg Phillingaines, Alan Oldfield
Alan Oldfield
Clarence “Butch” Robinson, Eddie “Bongo” Brown
(congas, bongos)
Raul de Souza
(trombone, percussion)
Willian Green, Ernie Fields, Moacir Santos
Leslie Dreayton, Bobby Bryant Sr.
Maurice Spears, Donald Cooke, Lou McCreary
Bonita Wilson, Lynn B. Davis, Oneida James, Marie Jones
(backing vocals)

Track List

01 – Til Tomorrow Comes (B. Nakagawa / Arthur Wright)
02 – Only When You Can (Arthur Wright)

Raulzinho - Viva Volta (1986)

Hello, good evening! In spite of a flu making my eyes hurt and feeling pain all over my feathers, I’m having a really nice evening with another non-identified traffic increase of new people to Loronix. We had an average of four unique visitors per minutes on peak hours, which are much for January, a month used by many friends for vacation. That’s why I’m making a solid start this Monday, sharing a never released album of a favorite artist of many friends, the legendary Brazilian trombonist Raul de Souza, also known as Raulzinho. Let’s see.

This is Raul de Souza – Viva Volta (1986), for Top Tape, recorded live at Inverno & Verao nightclub, Sao Paulo, February 1986. Perhaps this is a widely unknown Raulzinho album, found last week while browsing the always surprising R$ 1.00 section of a used vinyl store in Copacabana. Raulzinho performs a repertoire of his own compositions and Brazilian standards from Milton Nascimento, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Noel Rosa, Vinicius de Moraes and Joao Bosco. Personnel listing is available bellow and includes the participation of Guilherme Vergueiro as special guest on Feitio de Oracao. Tracks include:


Raul de Souza
(trombone, tenor sax, arrangements)
Rui S. Yamamura, Jarbas A. Barbosa
Guilherme Vergueiro
Celso Pixinga
Chico Melao
Rogerio de Souza
(vocal, Salve o Rio)

Track List

01 – Manhã Cedo (Raul de Souza)
02 – Papel Marché (João Bosco / Capinan)
03 – Viva Volta (Raul de Souza)

Raulzinho e Impacto 8 – International Hot (1969)

Publicado em: Monday, June 25, 2007 by zecalouro

International Hot is the last Raul de Souza album recorded in Brazil before making the acclaimed Colors for Milestone in the USA. Before Colors, Raul de Souza was Raulzinho. It has been a while since the last Raul de Souza release, the excellent Rio with Conrad Herwig. Raul is great and his discography has many albums, most of them out of print, I think we can make Raulzinho more often at Loronix.

This is Raulzinho e Impacto 8 – International Hot (1969), for Equipe. Raul de Souza and his group Impacto 8 were active for one year and recorded only this album for Equipe. Perhaps they assembled Impacto 8 only for this record, with no concerts. International Hot is a blend of Samba with American pop of that time. The outcome is a dancing album full of brass and electric guitars, a very different work in comparison to what we know as the other Raul de Souza works. Personnel features excellent musicians that became renowned in the forthcoming years, such as the drummer Robertinho Silva and the legendary Oberdan Magalhaes. Tracks include:


Raul de Souza
Bill Vogel and Sergio
Oberdan Magalhaes
(sax, flute)
Robertinho Silva
Helio Celso
(organ, piano)
(guitar, violao)

Track List

01 – Tesouro de São Miguel (R. Nichols)
02 – Vida Torta (Spinning Wheel) (C. Thomaz / Vrs. Luis Keller)
03 – Boogaloo Bill Nº 2 (B. Vogel)
04 – Mundo Louco (Two Beat Manchild) (Neil Diamond / Vrs. Luis Keller)
05 – Fried Bananas (G. Mc Farland)
06 – You’ve Made Me So Very Happy (B. Gordy Júnior / B. Holloway / F. Wilson)
07 – Mercy Mercy (J. Zavinewl)
08 – Hello Monalisa (Santos Dumont / Paulo Imperial)
09 – Cantallope Island (H. Hancok)
10 – I’ve Got The Feelin’ (James Brown)

Hello, Good Evening! This video announces the start of another Brazilian music night at Loronix. We had great nights this week and it will be very easy to keep the pace at day four of Caetano Rodrigues releases. Some friends reported to sleep badly in the last three nights, so I will try, I said try; to make everything happens earlier today.

Luiz Harding made it again selecting for us another video with the legendary Brazilian trombonist Raul de Souza, according with Maria Bethania, the best trombonist in the world. By the way, Maria Bethania delivers a truly beautiful singing. You can see by yourself, just click at the arrow bellow or use the increase lens for a bigger version.

Luiz Harding said he had to think a lot to make a decision on sending this video to us. I’m glad with Luiz decision, sometimes we need to stop and think about a fact, it is really hard to have a life as a musician, even a genius like the Brazilian trombonist Raul de Souza.
This short documentary shows a bit of the life of this great artist and how is hard to make a living in Brazil as a musician. This documentary is dedicated to all Brazilian instrumental musicians. Unfortunately, no English captions.

Hope uEnjoy!
