Hello, good evening! I’m confident that everything will be delivery with no errors. I’ve been making small mistakes on each post and this is something really frustrating. The causes are many, mainly a change on my routine. Now I use to wake up at the time I was going to bed a month ago. When midnight approaches, a kind of tractor beam drags me with all the forces toward my bed, and everything becomes very difficult. But today is different; Aracy de Almeida saved my day, and probably can save yours with this little and very old tribute to Noel Rosa recorded in 1955 in the 10-inch format for Continental. Let’s see.

This is Aracy de Almeida – Cancoes de Noel Rosa com Aracy de Almeida (1955), for Continental. It is unbelievable that Noel Rosa died with 26 years old and be considered as one of the most important Brazilian popular music composers from the last century. Aracy de Almeida is a favorite singer of many friends and does not need to be introduced. In the other hand, this album features arrangements by Vadico, the most frequent Noel Rosa songwriting partner and also an acclaimed musician with international experience. We need to show one of the three and impossible to find Vadico’s career LPs someday. These albums were recorded between 1956 and 1959 and seem to be really impossible to find. Tracks include:

This is a tribute to one of the most underrated and forgotten artists in Brazil. Make an exercise right now and try to answer a simple question: “Who is Vadico?” Probably, just a small group of friends would make it by heart. I’m quite sure Vadico is widely unknown outside and even inside Brazil. Vadico is the longtime composer partner of Noel Rosa, one of the most interesting composer partnerships of Brazilian popular music. Their first composition is the legendary Feitio de Oracao, created in 1932, the second was, believe me, Feitico da Vila. Since these first two masterpieces, they made together hundreds of legendary compositions. I’m sharing a tribute album to Vadico, recorded in 1979 by a constellation of Brazilian musicians.

This is Vadico – Evocacao III (1979), for Eldorado, a tribute to Vadico. In spite of his series of compositions with Noel Rosa, Vadico was also a gifted musician, playing piano and leading orchestras. Vadico had also an international experience as member of several American orchestras and as pianist of o Bando da Lua, Carmen Miranda accompaniment group, taking part in several movies in the 40’s. There is also an interesting story about Vadico, he was the first Vinicius de Moraes choice to be responsible for the soundtrack of Orfeu da Conceicao, but Vadico took a lot of time to accept the offer and Vinicius decided another name, Antonio Carlos Jobim. Tracks include:


Marcio Montarroyos
Raul de Barros
Amilton Godoy
Roberto Sion
Edu da Gaita
Heraldo do Monte
