Moacir Laurentino e Sebastiao da Silva – Nordeste e Violas (1976)

Musicolor 1-04-406-150

The third viola duo consisting of Moacir Laurentino and Sebastião da Silva on their (probably) first (unlisted) career album, about which no information is given on the back cover.
Anyway, there is a list of their 4 other releases: 3 albums recorded during the period from 1980 to 1984 and a recent independent CD release from 2004.

The compositions performed are:

1. Paisagendo o Sertão (Sextilha) (Moacir Laurentino / Sebastião da Silva)
2. Banho de Praia (Galope a beira mar) (Moacir Laurentino / Sebastião da Silva)
3. Desafio (Martelo Alagoano) (Moacir Laurentino / Sebastião da Silva)
4. Recordação do Vaqueiro (Vaquejada) (João da Silveira) (Moacir Laurentino / Sebastião da Silva)

THE THIRD DUO

Ivanildo Vila Nova e Geraldo Amancio – Violas de Ouro (1976)

Musicolor 1.04-405-184

Another viola duo consisting of Ivanildo Vila Nova and Geraldo Amancio who are also the authors of the music they are performing is presented for the first time in this parallel reality.
This album is, as you might have guessed, unlisted. On the other hand, Ivanildo Vila Nova has two listed viola duo career albums one recorded with Sebastião Dias in 1981 and the other with Severino Feitosa, released in 1980.
Geraldo Amancio is, as far as Memoria Musical’s listing is concerned, not mentioned at all, which does not mean that this is his only release…
Braulio Tavares, the author of the linear notes can tell you more about these two artists and this recording, which is according to his text, their first.

North-east sounds like:

1. Deus O Homem e A Natureza (Sextilhas)
2. O Mesageiro da Fé (Mote)
3. Turismo pelo Brasil (Galope B. Mar)
4. A Vida de Cada Um (Quadrão Mineiro)
5. O Sertão em Carne e Alma (Martelo Agalopado)
6. Deu Tudo ao Contrário (Mourão Voltado)
7. Revoltas Brasileiras (Brasil de Pai Tomás)
8. Giro pelo Mundo (Gabinete)

Antonio de Franca e Jose Cardoso – Violas e Violeiros (1981)

Sertanejo/Chantecler 2.11.405.369

Violeiros Antônio de França and José Cardoso from Limoeiro do Norte are for the first time on Parallel Realities. As the discography of musician from the North is seldom completely listed, I can not be sure that this is, as Memoria Musical says, really their only album.
On the other hand the back cover has a story about them and their career straight from the pen of Rose Guirro, so I suggest to read it as it offers more facts than I, who know nothing, could possibly do.

The compositions are:

1. A Volta do Vaqueiro (Chico Pedra) José Cardoso
2. Embolada Esportiva (Otacílio Batista) Antônio de França
3. Brasil de Norte a Sul (Antônio de França / José Cardoso)
4. Caboclo Agricultor (Antônio de França / José Cardoso)
5. Homenagem à Criança (Antônio de França / José Cardoso)
6. Debate de Cantadores (Antônio de França / José Cardoso)
7. Uma Tarde de Saudade (Pedro Bandeira) Antônio de França

Dancando Com Jose Menezes E Seu Quarteto (1957)

Sinter SLP 1094

I have been sure that my collection of José Menezes‘ career albums was complete but fortunately I it was another wrong assumption.
Out of the blue, a previously unknown 10′ Lp from 1957 appeared in the newest package sent to us by Pedro & 300discos.

The (unsigned) back cover text gives us a quite detailed information about the career of José Menezes, up to 1957, that is.

The names of the musicians playing with him are not listed, but the track list is and it goes as follows:

1. ‘na Voce ‘na Chitarra e ‘o Poco ‘e Luna (Carlo Alberto Rossi / U. Calise) Fox-trot
2. Nunca Jamás (Lalo Guerrero) Bolero
3. Chá-chá-chá Mademoiselle (Francis Lopez / Rolf Marbot) Chá-chá-chá
4. Tea For Two (Irving Caesar / Vincent Youmans) Fox-trot
5. Espinita (Nico Jimenez) Mambo
6. Maracangalha (Dorival Caymmi) Samba
7. Le Piano Du Pouvre (Leo Ferré) Fox-trot
8. Le Rififi (Jacques Larue / Philippe Gérard) Slow

RCA Camden 107.0315

With this release by Nonato five out of four listed albums have been brought to light and his so far known discography is completed.

Who knows, maybe there is more also by Nonato.
