Conjunto Belsom – O Som Internacional do Belsom (1968)

Hot/Rioson LPH 5015

The third “one recording only” group of musicians in a row:

Conjunto Belsom for the first time on Parallel Realities with their (good sounding) only career album, recorded at an unknown date for Hot/Rioson.
The back cover offers, except for Sergio César, only the first names of the musicians, but fortunately, everybody knew and still knows all of them and all about them (except for me), so there was evidently no need for a full introduction.
The producer, Maestro João Negrão does have his full name displayed, so does Jocenio Corréa Coimbra, the author of the linear notes, whose text, containing information about the compositions, you may read after adding this album to your collection,

The cast is as listed:

Elsom (Trombone)
Nerval (Pistom)
Pedrinho (Guitarra base)
Dilton (Guitarra solo)
Valdier (Baixo)
Darci (Órgão)
Sandro (Bateria)
Helinho e Sergio César (Vozes)

Produced by Maestro João Negrão

The well balanced mixture of national and international compositions and their composers is:

01. Wave (Tom Jobim)
02. Sentado À Beira do Caminho (Roberto Carlos / Erasmo Carlos)
03. Ilusão de Carnaval (Pedro Sergio / Dilton Barroso)
04. Watermelon Man (Herbie Hancock / Jon Hendricks)
05. Aquele Plá (Darci Garcia)
06. Les Papillons (André Popp / Pierre Cour)
07. Casatschok (Boris Rubaschkin)
08. The Impossible Dream (Joe Darion / Mitch Leigh)
09. O Bolo (Pedro Sergio / R. Gerardi)
10. Et Maintenant (Gilbert Bécaud / Pierre Delanoé)
11. Flor da Ilusão (Mauro Rosas / R. Gerardi)
12. Mustang Cor de Sangue (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sérgio Valle)

RELEASE DATE by Andreas Dünnewald:
As far as I know, Hot’s subsidiary Riosom issued only from 1968 to 1969. André Popp’s Les Papillons is from 1968, hence, this album must have been published that year.

  1. A very nice version of Jobim’s “Wave”!
