Hello, good evening! Here we go on a truly amazing album recorded in 1958 by Maestro Zaccarias. This great cover features Zaccarias e Seu Conjunto de Boite at The Country Club of Rio de Janeiro, the most sophisticated club in Rio that is very hard to be admitted and with a very long list of really famous people barred in the entrance.
The Country Club already exists in Ipanema and I found today this awesome picture of Ipanema in the beginning of the last century, featuring the tennis courts of Country Club. Take a look how Ipanema was an empty place at the time; you can click the picture to get a larger version to see the courts and neighborhood details.
This is Zaccarias e Seu Conjunto de Boite – Uma Noite no Country Club (1958), for Columbia. If it is almost impossible to get inside the Country Club, at least we can check this picture with Cristo Redentor rising on the background and also listen to the music performed there in 1958 by Maestro Zaccarias and his group of top-notch musicians. Zaccarias had a contract with Country Club to perform every Sunday night with his Conjunto, featuring the legendary pianist Fats Elpidio, the bassist Bill and the drummer Romeu. In this session, they had also the participation of the special guests the pistonist Maurilio and Barao at the rhythm section. I think no one should skip this one. Tracks include:
01 – Agora É Cinza (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide” / Armando “Marçal”)
02 – Rio de Janeiro (Ary Barroso)
03 – Na Aldeia (Alberto Dias “Carusinho” / Silvio Caldas / De Chocolat)
04 – Barracão (Luis Antônio / Teixeira)
