Caetano left Sao Paulo today for a short business trip and made a phone call to remind me of Wilson Simonal passing, seven years ago, June 26, 2000. I know we had the great Joia, Joia less than a week, but this album is so great that I could not resist showing Loronixers. Just after post closing, I’m announcing in Portuguese the invitation I received from Max de Castro to be his guest on a concert tomorrow, part of a series of concerts celebrating 40 years of Canecao nightclub in Rio de Janeiro. Thanks Max, I’m honored, Loronix is all about the Brazilian musicians and the respect and promotion of their art is the strongest Loronix value proposition.

This is Wilson Simonal – Vou Deixar Cair (1966), for Odeon. This cover artwork alone worth your attention as well the music, Wilson Simonal is at his peak and backed by the mighty Som 3, the legendary instrumental combo lead by Cesar Camargo Mariano and complemented by the sax tenor of Juarez Araujo and Maurilio da Silva Santos trumpet. I hope you enjoy this release. Tracks include:

Since the first week the Forum was released, zecalouro made a poll to Loronixers with selections of records to be posted. This one was the winner and the green parrot did not make it since poll closing. I think it is now the time to make it happen.

This is Som Tres – Som Tres (1969), for Odeon, featuring Cesar Camargo Mariano (piano and arrangements), Saba (bass) and Toninho (bateria). In spite this cover with the trio with a night outfit in front of this beautiful swimming pool, this is considered by several reviewers as the best album released by Som Tres. I’m sorry for being postponing this release for such a long time. Tracks include:

01 – For Once In My Life (R. Miller / Murden)
02 – Moça (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
03 – Se Você Pensa (Roberto Carlos / Erasmo Carlos)
04 – Blood-mary (César Camargo Mariano)

In one of those zecalouro’s flights over the old vinyl stores at Copacabana, he found this piece and although it is a record already available at Loronix, we have a mandatory repost here. Caetano also agrees that this LP is truly amazing and deserves a better place in 2007, instead of being lost on a given week of 2006. Additionally, we have now details that were not available by the time of the first post. I’m sure that you should be pleased with this release.

This is Elizeth Cardoso – Muito Elizeth (1965), for Copacabana. Top three Elizeth Cardoso albums on her vast discography. The liner notes written by Herminio Belo de Carvalho is also a masterpiece and has a very interest statement when he mention the composer of track 06 – Amor de Carnaval (Gilberto Gil), saying that we will heard a lot about him in the future.

The production is in charge of Moacyr Silva and three combos, Som Tres, Luiz Loy Quinteto and Conjunto Regional do Caculinha, back Elizeth Cardoso. The album has a concept, showing tunes from Pixinguinha to Chico Buarque de Hollanda, approaching several decades. Pretty self-explanatory music from Elizeth Cardoso, one of the greatest Brazilian divas. Tracks include:

01 – Mundo Melhor (Pixinguinha / Vinicius de Moraes) (*)
02 – Ginga Muxique (Maurício Tapajós / Hermínio Bello de Carvalho) (**)
03 – Sem Mais Adeus (Francis Hime / Vinicius de Moraes) (**)

Publicado em: SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 04, 2007

Just decided. This is another of those long time requests of Mr. D&C., he has this record, not the case this time, but he says that this LP is so good that it is a shame that Loronixers were not presented to it so far. I agree with Mr. D&C, the last video with Wilson Simonal and Silvio Cesar made some requests of Wilson Simonal starts dropping at my mailbox. That’s why we are making it again, this time, making great.

This is Wilson Simonal e Som Tres – Show em Simonal (1967), for Odeon, featuring Cesar Camargo Mariano Trio, Som Tres. The collaboration between Wilson Simonal and Som Tres was already discussed when we knew that very hard to find Wilson Simonal and Som Tres LP released in Mexico, Mexico 70. Show em Simonal was recorded live at Teatro Record in Sao Paulo, it is a double LP with 52 minutes of music.

This is Wilson Simonal e Som Tres – Show em Simonal (1967), at Loronix.  Hope uEnjoy!

Before showing this release, I want to make an announcement that is very important to our Brazilian music community. Sabadabada.com had sometime earlier this week an update. This update came to my attention by the Bossanovadreamer, the connected German friend of Loronix.

But it was not an upgrade, we are talking about a *major* upgrade with approximately 75 new LP covers, bought on a single box a few years ago and forgot in a closet, according with Sabadabada own words. When I read that I ran quickly to my closet and nothing was found… The music was also updated with my highlights to Ruy Maurity – Safra/74 (1973), for Odeon and De Savoya – De Savoya (1972), for Polydor, De Savoya is Ed Lincoln.

That’s it Take a time to visit the updated Sabadabada.com, the Sanctuary of Bossa Nova, here. (http://sabadabada.com)

With this update, I could finally manage a quality cover for this release, Som Tres – Um e Pouco, Dois e Bom, Esse Som Tres e Demais (1969) for Odeon. The wait was worth; this cover is amazing with these 70’s clothes. It looks like they are dressed for a Bruce Lee movie.

Cesar Camargo Mariano arranges this LP and Som Tres is César Camargo Mariano (piano), Sabá (bass) and Toninho (drums). Tracks include:

01 – Tanga (Toninho / César Camargo Mariano)
02 – Trevo de 4 Folhas (I’m Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover) (M. Dixon / H. Woods)
03 – Love Letters (V. Young / E. Heyman) — Meu Nome É Gal (Roberto Carlos / Erasmo Carlos)
04 – Take It Easy My Brother Charles (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
05 – Teletema (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
06 – Spooky (M. Shapina / H. Middlebrooks / B. Bule / J. Cobb)
07 – Não Identificado (Caetano Veloso)
08 – O Meu Baião (César Camargo Mariano / Chico Anísio)
09 – Bird Brain (Henry Mancini)
10 – Só Faltava Você (Sabá)
11 – Horizonte (Luis Cláudio / Luis Fernando Fonseca)
12 – Um É Pouco Dois É Bom Este Som Três É Demais (Luis Cláudio / Luis Fernando Fonseca)

Max released his first CD in 1999, Samba Raro, receiving several enthusiastic reviews.

Publicado em: Saturday, September 30, 2006 by zecalouro

Toboga is the name of this LP from Cesar Camargo Mariano combo Som Tres, but is also the name of the slope these Three guys are having fun. I do not know how common was the toboga outside Brazil in the 70’s, but here it was real a mania.

Back to business, this is the last out of five LPs released by Som Tres, one of the best Bossa Nova Trios from the late 60’s, lead by Cesar Camargo Mariano. This is a really late debut at Loronix and you should take this record and this group with a special attention. Som Tres is Cesar Camargo Mariano (piano), Saba (bass) and Toninho Pinheiro (drums). zecalouro is providing AMG bio for Cesar Camargo Mariano. Tracks include:

1. Lôla (Lamartine Babo)
2. Irmãos Coragem (Nonato Buzar / Paulinho Tapajós)
3. Bajar no México (César Camargo Mariano)
4. Eu Já Tenho Você (César Camargo Mariano / Sabá)
5. Eu Só Posso Assim (Pingarilho / Marcos Vasconcellos)
6. O Telefone Tocou Novamente (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
7. Oh Happy Day (Tradicional / Adpt. Edwin R. Hawkins)
8. Tobogã (César Camargo Mariano)
9. Mulher Brasileira (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
10. A Volta da Maçã (César Camargo Mariano / Toninho / Sabá)

One of Brazil’s top arrangers, producers, and pianists, César Camargo Mariano has had extensive work in the most important arenas of the world. He has had musicians like Abe Laboriel, Alex Acuña, Mitch Holder, Paulinho da Costa, Jerry Hey, Bill Rickenbach, Ernie Watts, Hélio Delmiro, Wagner Tiso, Nelson Ayres, Crispin DelCistia, Azael Rodrigues, João Parahyba, among many others, participating on his solo albums. Mariano also co-produced, arranged, played the piano, and/or did the artistic direction for several shows and albums of Brazil’s most important contemporary artists like Elis Regina, Nana Caymmi, Gal Costa, Maria Betânia, Simone, Rita Lee, Elba Ramalho, Ney Matogrosso, João Bosco, Leny Andrade, Leila Pinheiro, Beth Carvalho, Emilio Santiago, Ivan Lins, Ivete Sangalo, and others. Among his many awards are the eight Clio’s and several São Paulo’s Association of Art Critics (APCA) awards as musician, composer, arranger, and producer of records and shows. Over the past two decades, Mariano has produced, directed, and headed various TV programs. Mariano also wrote soundtracks for films, plays, and prime time nationwide soap operas (like Mandala).

Mariano started playing the piano by ear at 13, never having studied music before. Nine months later he played with Melba Liston (June 1957) in her concert in Rio. In the ’60s, Mariano was hired by the William Furneaux Orchestra, playing dances. He also formed a quartet at that time with Theo de Barros (bass), Flavio Abattipietro (trumpet), and José Luis Schiavo (drums). Invited by Simonetti, Mariano put together a larger group, Três Américas, to cover some of Simonetti’s gigs. In the A Baiúca nightclub (São Paulo) in 1962, Mariano participated in the Sabá Quartet with Sabá Oliveira (bass), Hamilton Pitorre (drums), and Theo de Barros (guitar). In the same year, Mariano produced and arranged Claudete Soares’ Claudete é Dona da Bossa. In 1963 Mariano recorded his first album, Quarteto Sabá. Together with Airto Moreira and Humberto Clayber, Mariano formed the Sambalanço Trio (1964). With the American choreographer, dancer, and singer Lennie Dale, Mariano staged a bossa nova show that was a success, yielding the album Lennie Dale & Sambalanço Trio No Zum-Zum, which received two prizes from the newspaper Jornal do Brasil. From 1965 to 1971, Mariano led the Som Três trio. In 1967, Mariano wrote 12 arrangements for singer Marisa Gata Mansa. In 1968, Mariano became Wilson Simonal’s producer, arranger, and musical director. In 1969, Mariano participated in the Festival of Black Arts in Senegal, Africa, with the singer Elizeth Cardoso and the Som Três trio. In 1971, Mariano was invited by Elis Regina to direct, produce, and arrange her new show at the Teatro da Praia in Rio and her new album for PolyGram, Elis. He put together a new quartet with Luisão Maia (bass), Helio Delmiro (guitar), and Paulinho Braga (drums). This would be the first of a series of 13 albums with Elis Regina.

Putting together an acoustic trio with Hélio Delmiro on guitar and Paulo Moura on clarinet, they traveled to Spain for a ten-concert tour. In 1990 Mariano composed the soundtrack for another film, Paixão Cigana (Flávia Moraes), and the score for the play Luar em Preto e Branco. In 1994, Mariano moved to the United States. In that year he met Sadao Watanabe, who invited him to produce and arrange Watanabe’s album In Tempo. Sadao Watanabe would bring Mariano again to produce and arrange his album Viajando. In that first period, Mariano played a piano concert at the Blue Note club in New York and traveled to Japan for various appearances with Watanabe and his group. In Chile, Mariano performed a four-handed piano concert with Michel Petrucciani. He also participated in Armando Manzanero’s album El Piano — Manzanero y Sus Amigos. In New York in 1996, Mariano gave a solo concert at the Ballroom, along with John Patittucci’s group. With Romero Lubambo (guitar), Leo Traversa (bass), and Mark Walker (drums), Mariano performed a tribute to Elis Regina at the Montreaux Jazz Festival with special guest Milton Nascimento. At the end of the year, Mariano directed a Brazilian music show at the Lincoln Center. In 1997, along with his quartet, he performed with Michael Brecker and Dianne Reeves at the Heineken Festival in São Paulo and Porto Alegre, Brazil. In Mexico, Mariano produced an album for PolyGram Latino with 12 Latin American singers (Tania Libertad, Vikky Car, Emmanuel, Maria Conchita Alonso, among others) backed only by piano and keyboards, Piano, Voz y Sentimento.
