Claudette Soares (1967)

Philips P 765.010 P

This album by Claudette Soares has been originally presented by Loronix a long time ago, so here is, as you might have guessed, Zeca‘s text about it reprinted on Órfãos do Loronix.

From my point of view, Claudette‘s best album, containing:

Musicolor/Continental MLP 9034

Back in 1960 at the time of the release of the first edition of this album by Todoamérica, Clemar de Oliveira was the youngest band leader of them all…
This and lots of other information about Clemar‘s life, career and music as well all about the musicians of his band, you may find inside the linear notes printed on the back cover of this 1962 re-edition.

The jovem styled Vespa decorated cover includes also the word “broto” while the track list includes these compositions:

01. To The Ends Of The Earth (Joe Sherman / Noel Sherman)

Philips P 630.449 L

After posting 9 Carnaval albums with his participations, it is time to finally present on Parallel Realities also a career album by the famous Jackson de Pandeiro.

Melodia… e A Personalidade from ’61 containing:

01. Aquilo Bom (Jackson do Pandeiro / José Batista)
02. Dá Eu Pra Ela (Venâncio / Corumba)

11. Criando Cobra (Bezerra da Silva / Big Ben / Odelandes Rodrigues)
12. Lição de Tabuada (Rosil Cavalcanti)

If I correctly understood the linear notes by Fernando Lôbo, the female vocal is by Jackson‘s wife Almira.


Créditos: Pedro & 300discos

ALMIRA CASTILHO by Edson Mendes:
Almira Castilho
was a singer, songwriter and Brazilian dancer. She was Jackson‘s partner (and also his wife) in compositions and performances on the radio, TV and films.
She began her artistic career in 1954, joining the chorus in the recording of “Sebastiana” by Jackson do Pandeiro.
During her career she wrote more than 30 songs. With Jackson, she wrote hits as “1 x 1“, “A mulher de Aníbal” and “Forró em Limoeiro“, but her biggest success was “Chiclete com banana” written with singer and composer Gordurinha. This song was recorded by many artists as Odete Amaral, Jackson do Pandeiro, Gilberto Gil, Gordurinha, Carmélia Alves and Zé Ramalho, among others.

Mocambo LP 10024

Clarinet, sax and flute player Jair Pimentel surrounded by his instruments, presents himself audio-visually from the vinyl on his 10′ Lp and corresponding cover photograph and textually in a long, unsigned, text on the back cover.

I’ll leave the textural and visual presentation for all interested to read and watch themselves at leisure and offer here just the track list:

Radames Gnattali Em Ritmo de Samba (1958)

Continental LPP 3010

One of the most famous figures in Brazilian music, composer, arranger and piano player Radamés Gnattali was featured in this as well as in the previous parallel reality, but as far as I can remember not with a complete, his only, career album, the nearest to that being the two weeks ago presented Retratos, a joint venture with Jacob do Bandolim.

Now here it is finally: Em Ritmo de Samba from 1958.


01. Atire A Primeira Pedra (Ataulfo Alves / Mário Lago)
02. Fim de Semana Em Paquetá (João de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
03. Copacabana (João de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
04. Agora É Cinza (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide” / Armando “Marçal”)
05. Já É Demais o Meu Sofrer (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide” / Armando “Marçal”)
06. Vem Meu Amor (Norival Reis / Adelino Moreira)
07. Duas Contas (Garoto)
08. O Morro Canta Assim (Norival Reis / José Batista)
09. Foi A Noite (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
10. Nova Ilusão (José Menezes / Luis Bittencourt)
11. Quem Foi Que Prometeu (José Menezes / Jorge Murad)
12. Esquina da Saudade (Radamés Gnattali / Chiquinho do Acordeom)

Almos everything you wanted to know about Radamés Gnattali but were afraid to ask, you may read on the back cover text.

Here is just one detail from his personal life: While searching for more songs by Nelly Martins I learned that she was married to Radamés Gnattali and that they have recorded an album together which I did not have an opportunity to listen to but in the textual description I read that, instead of singing, Nelly is also playing piano so we have 4 hands on one piano, but not Nelly‘s sensual vocal, which is from my point of view, as you might have guessed, not a good idea. Anyway, a link to one of Nelly‘s compactos found in another reality is still working and you still can hear her voice if you have not already done so. Just click HERE.

To get Radamés’ solo album click on the usual, not always understandable text.

All Giffer e Seu Conjunto de Dancas – Parada em Copacabana(1959)

Chantecler CMG 2042

Presenting for the first time All Giffer organist (or is he maybe the guitar player?) and leader of a dance music quintet.

As you have already guessed, about All Giffer I can tell you even less than the back cover text by Almeida does, as it is partially damaged and not all is legible.

Anyway, the album sounds very interesting and was (I suppose) very avant garde for 1959, + decorated with occasional background meows by a female choir.

Is All Giffer All Giffer or somebody else recording for Chantecler under the false name of All Giffer?

No idea, but it seems that this is All‘s only recording.

Enjoy it, now that you have an opportunity to do so:

01. O Apito no Samba (Luiz Bandeira / Luis Antônio)
02. No Meio da Noite (Aloísio Figueiredo / José Marques da Costa)
03. Passeando Pela Rua (A. F. Cerqueira / N. F. Cerqueira)

12. Vai e Me Esquece (Calixto de Paula Acle)

The link has expired in the meantime but:

Chiquinho do Acordeom – Valsas, Polcas E Outra Coisas (1961)

Odeon MOFB 3251

Another until now missing album from Chiquinho‘s discography: Valsas, Polcas e Outras Coisas from ’61 brought to us as courtesy of Pedro & 300discos.

The reform of Portuguese spelling in Brazil has multiplied the list of musicians in Brazil at least by two. A good example is Chiquinho do Acordeom, who became also another (additional) musician: Chiquinho do Acordeon (or was it vice-versa?).
Could it be that the secret meaning of two Chiquinhos on the front cover of this Lp is: Chiquinho do Acordeom and Chiquinho do Acordeon united on and for Odeon?

Note that the “do Acordeom/n is nowhere explicitly printed on the covers. It is just Chiquinho.

If you know how, dance to:

01. Maria Bonita (Agustín Lara)
02. São Paulo Quatrocentão (Garoto / Chiquinho do Acordeom / Avaré)
03. Viva Caruarú (Chiquinho do Acordeom / Radamés Gnattali)
04. Um Baile Em Santa Cruz (Chiquinho do Acordeom / Radamés Gnattali)
05. Polinha Gaúcha (Adpt. Chiquinho do Acordeom)
06. Dobradinho (Luiz Bonfá)
07. Estrela (Radamés Gnattali / Chiquinho do Acordeom)
08. Oh! Minas Gerais (Vieni Sul Mar) (Tradicional)
09. Colonel Bogey (Kenneth J. Alford)
10. Sinimbu (Chiquinho do Acordeom / Radamés Gnattali)

How it all sounds, you may find out by listening to:

01. Corruira Saltitante (Lina Pesce)
02. Saudoso (Lina Pesce)
03. Tangará na Dança (Lina Pesce)

Francisco Moraes e Sua Orquestra – Sucessos de Adelino Moreira (1961)

RCA Victor BBL 1153

Francisco Moraes has been presented for the first time on Parallel Realities a short time ago with his first career album.

At that time I knew that he was a maestro and arranger but thought that his main instrument was the piston (as the front cover is covered with a giant piston) and that he is also playing piano, as the back cover has a small photograph of him next to his piano.

Now here he is again with a tribute to composer Adelino Moreira as orchestra leader, arranger and piano player.

To the confusion are adding also two texts on the back cover, the first (and longer one) written by Ramalho Neto and another (shorter) signed with Julio Nagib.

The tracks are all composed by Adelino Moreira:

01. A Volta do Boêmio (Adelino Moreira)
02. Maria Helena (Adelino Moreira)
03. Deusa do Asfalto (Adelino Moreira)
04. Devolvi (Adelino Moreira)
05. Chore Comigo (Adelino Moreira)
06. Flor Do Meu Bairro (Adelino Moreira)
07. Solidão (Adelino Moreira)
08. Ciclone (Adelino Moreira)
09. Fantoche (Adelino Moreira)
10. Moço (Adelino Moreira)
11. Queixas (Adelino Moreira)
12. Meu Vício É Você (Adelino Moreira)

Durval Ribeiro e Seu Conjunto – Daqui e Dali (1959)

Copacabana CLP 11127

Yes, it’s true: It is Odysséa!

My assumption, when presenting her for the first time on  Aloysio e Seus Teclados – Bon Voyage (1960) less than half a year ago, was that the two compositions she sang were her complete recorded opus, fortunately got proven wrong!

This only (?) album, by, to me previously unknown, Durival Ribeiro, recorded a year earlier than Bon Voyage is subtitled Apresentando a cantora Odysséa, a fact from which I am intelligently deducting that this might be her first record and the track list enables me to make another intelligent deduction:

She is singing on four tracks of:

01. Daqui e Dali (Durval Ribeiro) 
02. Sweetly (Docemente) (Herve Cordovil) com Odysséa
03. Meu Tema (Hervé Cordovil)
04. Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar (A. C. Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes) com Odysséa
05. Garoto Travesso (Bisoca)
06. Você (Mario Albanese / Heitor Carillo)
07. Toselli no Samba (Toselli)
08. Hymne À L’Amour (Edith Piaf / Marguerite Monnot) com Odysséa
09. Mestiça (Bisoca)
10. Suas Mãos (Antonio Maria / Pernambuco) com Odysséa
11. Harlem Noturno (Earle Hagen / Dick Rogers)
12. Fita Amarela (Noel Rosa)
