I will be open and honest, I’m not versed on Taiguara discography and career. Caetano Rodrigues could say something; he introduced Taiguara to Loronixers, delivering his first and very hard to find LPs for Odeon. Besides these first albums, I never took any later Taiguara release for a spin, being this one the exception. Taiguara was an artist that could make nice things on several different styles, from Bossa Nova to political songs. I think this one shows a different Taiguara, more acoustic, not on social concerns, I hope someone brings more clarification on this Taiguara career stage. Let’s see.

This is Taiguara – Taiguara, Piano e Viola (1972), for Odeon, featuring Taiguara with a combo of piano (played by Taiguara), bass, drums, violao and guitar with arrangements by Eduardo Souto Neto, Lindolfo Gaya and Taiguara, orchestra arrangements in charge and conduced by Eduardo Souto Neto and Lindolfo Gaya. Taiguara released several hits in the early 70’s, but I could not identify some of them at this album, with the exception of the title track, Piano e Viola. Tracks include:


Lindolfo Gaya, Eduardo Souto Neto
(arrangements, orchestra arrangements)
(piano, electric piano, arrangements)
(violao, viola)
Oswaldo Damiao

Track List

01 – Teu Sonho Não Acabou (Taiguara)
02 – O Troco (Taiguara)
03 – Manhã de Londres (Taiguara)

Here we go again with another Caetano Rodrigues contribution, this time different, since Caetano gave this record as a gift on my last trip to Sao Paulo. Thanks Caetano. However, simplicity is not a word on Caetano’s dictionary. Caetano said to let it ready and wait for further instructions. That’s what I did, like a soldier and the instructions had just arrived here: release at 1 Million Hits day. Very wise of Caetano, 5 artists together on a single album is really a celebration.

This is Juntos! (1988), for Phonodisc, featuring Edu Lobo, Johnny Alf, Taiguara, Pery Ribeiro and Sergio Ricardo. I just spoke with Caetano about Juntos! and we agreed that some tracks were released only at this album and never were made available on regular releases by these artists. Any help to realize which are the songs never released on regular albums is really appreciated. Tracks include:

01 – O Nosso Olhar – SERGIO RICARDO
02 – Uma Vez um Caso – EDU LOBO
03 – O Amor da Justica – TAIGUARA
04 – Chega de Saudade – PERY RIBEIRO
05 – Orgulho de Bom Sambista – JOHNNY ALF
06 – Valsinha – PERY RIBEIRO
07 – Gingando Dobrado – EDU LOBO
08 – Paz de um Grande Amor – JOHNNY ALF
09 – Guarania Guarani – TAIGUARA
10 – Do Lago a Cachoeira – SERGIO RICARDO


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Bili e Martoni, ele agora pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

Taiguara – Taiguara (1965) | Debut LP

Caetano never stops to amaze Loronixers, now he goes on a sought after collectors item, Taiguara debut LP for Philips, 1965. Everybody knows that zecalouro is a newbie to Taiguara music and Caetano is providing us a great start with this album. Reviewers say this record is one of the best Taiguara albums. Thanks Caetano for providing this unique opportunity.

This is Taiguara – Taiguara (1965), for Philips, celebrated with comments of Luiz Eca, Edu Lobo and Alaide Costa throughout the artwork. Luiz Chavez, Zimbo Trio bassist, is in charge of arrangements and conduction. I did not have the chance to check how Taiguara music evolved in the forthcoming years until his passing in 1996 and I’m sure if he kept the pace, youth and swing he delivers at this debut, later releases would be all great. I’m making available a video sent by a Loronix friend with Taiguara performing Cavaleiro da Esperanca at Projeto Seis e Meia at Teatro Joao Caetano. Tracks include:

01 – Samba de Copo na Mão (Taiguara)
02 – Preciso Aprender a Ser Só (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
03 – Mulata É Pra Sambar (Taiguara)
04 – Graúna (Glaciliano Correia da Silva / Taiguara)
05 – Cecília (Taiguara)
06 – Flor da Manhã (Adilson Godoy)
07 – Formosa (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – O Pesqueiro (Taiguara)
09 – Eu Não Sou do Morro (Geraldo Cunha / Alberto Helena Jr.)
10 – A Hora do Nego (Taiguara)
11 – Samba de Verão (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle) Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)

Taiguara – Hoje (1969)

Publicado em: Monday, April 02, 2007 by zecalouro

Several facts came to my attention in the last days to decide for this post, actually, I didn’t realize how popular Taiguara was before we made the video challenge showing Copacabana beach with Taiguara singing in the background. It was the easiest Challenge ever and I was confident that nobody would guess it so quickly. The second fact was the last Sivuca & Rosinha de Valenca album recorded at Projeto Seis e Meia in Rio. I received a video showing Taiguara performing the song that titles this album at the same Project and the same Theater. All roads leads to Taiguara, let’s see.

This is Taiguara – Hoje (1969), for Odeon. In spite of his successful career as a singer, Taiguara is also a composer, arranger and researcher on Latin and African music, mainly from his homeland, Uruguai. This is a self explanatory release and I’m confident will generate several comments, Taiguara fans are many. Do not miss the music video with “Hoje”, performed at Projeto Seis e Meia, Teatro Joao Caetano. Tracks include:

01 – Hoje (Taiguara)
02 – Fim de Caso (Dolores Duran)
03 – Mônica Mônica (Ivan Botticelli / Esther)
04 – Valsa da Primavera (La Valse Des Lilas) (Michel Legrand / E. Barclay / E. Marnay / Vrs. Taiguara)
05 – Castigo (Dolores Duran)
06 – Serenata do Adeus (Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – Esquecendo Você (Tom Jobim)
08 – Carabina (Luis Bandeira) — Voltei Recife (Luis Bandeira) — Atras do Trio Elétrico (Caetano Veloso)
09 – Vim (Eduardo Souto Neto / Sergio Bittencourt)
10 – Tarde (Milton Nascimento / Márcio Borges)
11 – Tributo a Jacob do Bandolim (Taiguara)
12 – Frevo Novo (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle / Taiguara / Novelli)
13 – Nada Sei de Eterno (Silvio da Silva Júnior / Aldir Blanc)

Hello friends! This LP is unique, Primeiro Tempo: 5 x 0 featuring Claudette Soares, Taiguara and Jongo Trio, produced by Ronaldo Boscoli and directed by Boscoli and Mieli in 1966. This is probably one of the first recordings of a very early Taiguara, later on a renowned artist.
