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)
03 – Fe-no-me-nol (Arthur Wright)
04 – Pleasurize (G. Know / 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)

Link original: 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)

03 – Boogaloo Bill Nº 2 (B. Vogel)
04 – Mundo Louco (Two Beat Manchild) (Neil Diamond / Vrs. Luis Keller)
05 – Fried Bananas (G. Mc Farland)

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.

Raul de Souza – Rio – Featuring Conrad Herwig (1998)

Link original: Raul de Souza – Rio – Featuring Conrad Herwig (1998)
Publicado em: Tuesday, March 27, 2007 by zecalouro

It is surprising that an album released so recently has gone out of print, Raul de Souza is one of those artists that are not idolized by everybody, in the other hand, it is very hard to find someone that doesn’t like him, actually everybody likes Raul de Souza. I like it also very much, Raul de Souza has also, at least for me, nice characteristic, his album covers always brings a photo of a parrot or some kind of nature element, butterflies in this case.

This is Raul de Souza – Rio – Featuring Conrad Herwig (1998), for Mix House. Amazing trombone album as Raul de Souza usually delivers. This time, Raul has the help of another trombonist, Conrad Herwig, participating intensively with trombone solos and also arrangements. Conrad Herwig is a renowned Jazz trombonist in the US, he has recorded and performed together with Joe Henderson, Jack DeJohnette, Paquito D’Rivera and others, now with the legendary Raul de Souza. At Loronix, all Brazilian trombonists are legendary. Tracks include:

01 – Rio (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
02 – Pra Ser Brasileira (Taiguara)
03 – Chora Tua Tristeza (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini)
04 – Não Deu (Djavan)
05 – Íris (Djavan)
06 – Nós (Johnny Alf)
07 – Piano Na Mangueira (Tom Jobim / Chico Buarque)
08 – Aquelas Coisas Todas (Toninho Horta)

Hello, Good Night! Was unable to decide the first post of the day, when Joe Carter, Loronix Admiral in Charge, place a comment at the last Zimbo Trio post with a link to a video at YouTube featuring Zimbo Trio and Raul de Souza.

This repost is being made for several reasons, first Ticiana has reported that it was dead, thanks Ticiana, second it is very early and perhaps many Loronixers did not notice, third it is a great Raul de Souza album. The last one deserves a paragraph.

Raul de Souza – Colors (1976) came to attention of ►Perimetric on June 05 and since then Loronix starts growing and became popular through this nice post by ►Perimetric, as you can see the screen capture below. The screen capture is only an example, take a time to visit Perimetric, now with a new design an always beautiful, here.

Thanks ►Perimetric. Let’s stay with Raul de Souza, the new link and this amazing cover, which is another reason that makes this post very special.

Publicado em: Saturday, August 12, 2006 by zecalouro

The legendary Brazilian trombone player Raul de Souza is back to Loronix with his 1978 LP Don’t ask my Neighbords. This is the second and the last US album made by Raul partnership with George Duke. This LP style is registered as Fusion, exactly what you will find here, Jazz improvisations with rock beat and rhythms.

zecalouro likes bass and the bass player – Byron Miller – works great here with slapping on most tracks. Track List includes:

01 – Don’t Ask My Neighbors (Scarborough)
02 – La Song (Mason)
03 – Daisy Mae (Duke)
04 – Beauty and the Beast (Shorter)
05 – Fortune (Casties, DeSouza)
06 – Overture (Colombier)
07 – At the Concert (Henderson)
08 – I Believe You (Addrisi)
09 – Jump Street (DeSouza)

It seems to zecalouro that Raul de Souza is a bird fan. Did you notice that there is a bird on each Raul’s LP covers? Raul is a really nice guy.

Raul de Souza – Brazilian Trombonist – first LP was released in 1964, known at that time as Raulzito, was never issued in the US. A Vontade Mesmo is not a Bossa Nova album, but high quality instrumental Brazilian jazz.

zecalouro wants to know what happened with these guys during the 60’s, where so wonderful albums were released. Maybe the water sold in Brazil…
