Dançando com Vadico (1956) Vocalista: Zézinho

Continental LPP 37

When I listened last night to this 10 Inch by Vadico (his first album out of 3) I was surprised by a very familiar sounding vocal and manner of singing.
I rubbed my ears and continued. If that is not Zézinho, then I must be hallucinating, I thought. Taking a look at the text on the back cover confirmed the evident.

Yes it is THE Zézinho!

More than that: Besides a mention in the text of his singing at the Vogue in the early ’50s, I found even his complete name: José Delphino Filho.

Curiously, this album is not listed in Zézinho‘s discography, which I (fortunately wrongly) assumed I already had complete in my collection.

Enjoy Zézinho‘s unexpected appearance out of the blue as much as I did while listening to him singing these sambas, accompanied by Vadico:

1. Agora É Cinza (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide” / Armando “Marçal”) Samba
2. Você Vai Se Quiser (Noel Rosa) Samba
3. Nega (Waldemar Gomes / Afonso Teixeira) Samba
4. Saudade Dela (Ataulfo Alves) Samba
5. Aos Pés da Cruz (Marino Pinto / Zé da Zilda) Samba
6. Minha Cabrocha (Lamartine Babo) Samba
7. Se Você Jurar (Ismael Silva / Nilton Bastos / Francisco Alves) Samba
8. Vai-te Embora (Romualdo Peixoto “Nonô” / Francisco Matoso) Samba


Créditos: Pedro & 300 discos

  1. Dear Milan,When I read the name "José Delphino Filho" in this posting, I thought to myself – this name is familiar to me!.After some researchs I found the link that was missing: he was the assistant director of almost all the records from the famous label Elenco, from Aloysio de Oliveira!Ruy Castro wrote about him in his book "Chega de Saudade" (p. 341): "It was common to miss the list of musicians that made up the set or accompanying the singer and sometimes he (Aloysio) absentmindedly omitted by the name of its main collaborator: the assistant artistic director José Delphino Filho, a man able to find a performer of tuba or bassoon at three in the morning, only the satisfy the whim of an arranger, usually Gaya."Then we discover that "our" Zezinho was actually a multi talented man: musician, singer, arranger, studio director and so on…
