Julinho, Seu Piston e Seu Conjunto – 100% Bossa (1963)

ХРИСТОС ВОСКРЕСЕ!

Masterplay MDL 13025

Piston player Julinho Barbosa‘s first career album out of two, the second one being released two years after this one.
He was already presented here and in the other reality as member of Os Cobras and as side man on Elizeth Cardoso‘s Sax Voz 1 with Moacyr Silva.

Beside several 78rpms, I will also mention that he has been a member of the Conjunto 7 de Ouros and participated on both recordings they released.

Now you can enjoy him as main performer + composer of one of these tracks:

01. Influência do Jazz (Carlos Lyra)
02. Moeda Quebrada (Luis Reis / Haroldo Barbosa)
03. Você E Eu (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
04. Alô Doçura (Julinho Barbosa)
05. Água Com Areia (Jair Amorim / Jacobina)
06. É Bossa Mesmo (Julinho Barbosa)
07. Desafinado (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
08. Olhou Pra Mim (Ed Lincoln / Silvio César)
09. Só Quero Sambar (Cyro Monteiro)
10. Corcovado (Tom Jobim)
11. Não Há Razão (Orlando Costa “Maestro Cipó”)
12. Questão de Moral (Roberto Faissal / Paulo Tito)

3 YEARS LATER by Paulo Castelo Branco:
In 1966, Julinho & seu Piston serviu para introduzir o Conjunto Musical The Fevers no selo Odeon. O grupo ainda estava vinculado ao selo Philips; assim, o disco (compacto simples Odeon) foi creditado ao solista Julinho com o aompanhamento do novato The Fevers nas gravações de “Quero que vá Tudo pro Inferno” e “Whipped Cream“.

Turma de Bossa – Sambas de Brasilia

Musidisc MS-70.010

About Turma de Bossa as well as about this recording I know nothing except for facts which can be deducted from hints on the front and back cover. As expected, the back cover text, written by Sebastião Fonseca, the specialist of thousand words and withholding any information, repeats the names of most of the composers (which were written on the record labels in the first place) and mentioning even some instruments used during recording but without any disclosure of the names of their users (musicians):

– Who are the musicians?
– They are those that play the compositions by Dorival Caymmi,  Billy Blanco, Ary Barroso…!
– Ok, but who are they?
– There is this guy who is playing piano! Among others there are the clarinet player, and a bloke playing the trombone.
– Great! So can you tell me at least who is playing the trombone?
– The rhythm section! They are magnificent on every track!
– Etc…?
– Etc…!

Luckily the music is quite straightforward:

01. Lamento (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio)
02. Vai, mas vai mesmo (Ataulfo Alves)
03. Chega de Saudade (A. C. Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
04. Mochino Bonito (Billy Blanco)
05. La vem A Bahiana (Dorival Caymmi)
06. Que é, qee é (Bororó / Evagrio Lopes)
07. E luxo só (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
08. Se acaso você chegasse (Lupicinio Rodrigues / Felisberto Martins)
09. Recado (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio)
10. Barracao (Luis Antônio / Oldemar Magalhães)
11. Com que roupa (Noel Rosa)
12. Brigas nunca mais (A. C. Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)

NIEMEYER’S SAMBA

Créditos: Pedro & 300discos

STEREO REISSUE by Andreas Dünnewald:
This album was first released in 1959 as Musidisc Hi-Fi 2023, titled “Sambas de Bossa Nova”. The version presented here with catalogue number Musidisc MS-70.010 is the stereo reissue from the early sixties with slightly changed tracklist: “Vai, Mas Vai Mesmo” and “Não Vou Pra Brasília” were skipped and “La Vem a Bahiana”, “Que é, Que é” and “Brigas Nunca Mais” were added.
Unfortunately, the liner notes of the original 1959 issue, also written by Sebastião Fonseca, reveal just a little information about the musicians. Maybe this is once again due contractual reasons as with several other one-time groups of that era.

FALSE NAMES AND INCOGNITOS by Luiz Octavio:
Musidisc used to hide their musicians  because in most of Musidisc‘s records there were several artists under contract by other labels, the best ones of their time.
So, under the pen names of “Turma da Bossa“, “Românticos de Cuba“, “Sete Velhinhos” are the real names of Severino Araújo, Chaim Lewak, Zito Righi, Moacyr Silva, Severinho Filho, Léo Peracchi among others… 

Lyra de Xopoto (1955)

Sinter SLP 1025

I just received from Nilton Maia the first album (a 10′ Lp) by Lyra de Xopotó. This album was posted originally on our friend The Trackfinder‘s site, but the link has expired a long time ago and The Trackfinder could not re-upload it due to a serious problem, so he was referring a visitor who asked for a renewal of the link to Parallel Realities, where he thought it might turn up.
The Trackfinder was right as three months after his comment here it is:

01. Mocinho do Circo (Lyrio Panicali) Dobrado
02. Arregaça a Saia (Lyrio Panicali) Maxixe
03. Saudade De Queluz (Lyrio Panicali) Valsa
04. Capitão Miranda Pinto (Lyrio Panicali) Dobrado
05. Sonhador (Lyrio Panicali) Dobrado
06. Julieta (Lyrio Panicali) Polca
07. Quadrilha (Lyrio Panicali) Quadrilha
08. Capitão Francisco Senna Sobrinho (Lyrio Panicali) Dobrado

Here is also Nilton‘s digested version of The Trackfinder‘s text about this release:

“The band was born from the Radio Program Lyra de Xopotó in 1954, created and presented by the broadcaster Paulo Roberto at Rádio Nacional and was directed to stimulate the music bands in the country.  The program was broadcasted on Saturdays, had the Maestro Lyrio Panicali as the main arranger and a dialog between Paulo Roberto and Mestre Filó, a fictitious character represented by the comedian/musician Jararaca.  As the program became a success, the band (composed by musicians of Rádio Nacional cast) started recording.

The first record was released by Sinter, in 1954, with the dobrados Capitão Francisco Senna Sobrinho and Sonhador, both composed by Lyrio Panicalli.
In 1960, the band released a last album with the dobrado São Paulo Quatrocentão, by Garoto and Chiquinho, and the marcha Me Dá Um Dinheiro Aí, by Ivan Ferreira, Homero Ferreira and Glauco Ferreira.  With the ending of the program at Rádio Nacional, the band ended too. It recorded ten 78rpm’s and a few LP’s.”

The complete text you may read at the original post at The Trackfinder‘s blog.

LEMBRANÇAS por Francisco Miranda:

Me recordo quando nas noites de sábados, na minha infância – e lá se vão sessenta anos! – ficávamos o pé do rádio a ouvir a ‘Lyra de Xopotó‘ pelas ondas da todo-poderosa emissora brasileira Rádio Nacional-RJ dos anos ’50: o apresentador Paulo Roberto fazia os comentários, citações e anúncios e, depois, emergia a voz de Jararaca, o ‘Mestre Filó‘, que ‘entrava em cena’ dizendo:
“… pois que de qualquer banda, temos a banda, porque aqui ninguém debanda… é UM… é DOOIS… é JÁÁÁÁ!!!!” e a Lyra de Xopotó (ou outra banda convidada) ‘colava’ um número musical.
Tudo indo ao ar ‘ao vivo’…
Ótimos tempos

Os Balanceiros – Sucessos No 3 (1965)

Fantasia/Philips FLP 2013

The third album from the Sucessos series of five by Os Balanceiros.
Still no information about who they might be and I strongly suspect that Fantasia/Philips has kept this secret throughout the complete series.

The music is para dançar at it’s best: Cool, relaxed and unpretentious sounds, ideal for dancing and listening pleasure.

Beautiful:

01. Menino das Laranjas (Théo)
02. Amore scusami (Pallavicini / Mescoli)
03. Bigú (Sebastião Gomes / Paquito / Romeu Gentil)
04. La Playa (Jovan Wetter)
05. Rancho do Rio (João Roberto Kelly / J. Rul)
06. Não me esquecerás (Otto Borges)
07. Rosas vermelhas para Uma Dama triste (Red roses for a blue lady) (Sid Tepper / Roy Brodsky)
08. Arrastão (Edú Lobo / Vinicius de Moraes)
09. Preste Atenção (Fais Attention) (Chauby / Bob du Pac)
10. Garota moderna (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia)
11. O Trovador (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia)
12. Por um Amor maior (Ruy Guerra / Francis Hime)
