A Turma do Bom Balanco (1965)

Mocambo LP 40262

While preparing the re-uploads of music by K-Ximbinho, I found inside the “K-Ximbinho” folder on the backup disc on which I stored albums received from Pedro & 300discos also this album together with the text below, prepared for creating a post. As I could not remember that I have posted this album, I checked all my sites and ideed, it is nowhere to be found. Also, it is presented differently than usual, having just the front cover and neither back caver nor label scans.

In short, I do not know:

1. Where this album came from
2. Why, although I have prepared it for posting, I failed to do so
3. Why have I forgotten all about it

It is clear that you can not know the answer to questions 2 and 3, but there is a possibility that you might have the answer to question 1, so if you know where it might be from, please tell me, so I can write it in the credits below the post.

Or just clear the confusion I created with my personal dilemma by relaxing and enjoying:

01. Abandono (Chico Feitosa / Marcos Vasconcellos) **
02. Essa Favela Que Eu Amo (Zé Keti / Paulo Thiago / Sidney Miller) **
03. Fora de Tempo (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle) *
04. Mar Amar (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli) **
05. Bom Balanço (Waltel Branco) *
06. Você (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli) ***
07. Garota Moderna (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia) **
08. Vai de Vez (Roberto Menescal / Luis Fernando Freire) ***
09. Gente (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle) *
10. (Roberto Menescal / Luis Fernando Freire) **

Jose Mauro – Obnoxius (1970)

Quartin LP RSQ 1

About José Mauro, presented for the first time on Parallel Realities with the first of his two career albums, I can not tell you much more than you may read on the back cover.

You may, first of all, find the list of participants which is full of renowned, well known names:

Maurílio: Trompete
Paulo Moura: Sax alto
Altamiro Carrilho: Flauta
Rildo Hora: Gaita
Dom Salvador: Órgão, Piano, Cravo
Geraldo Vespar: Guitarra
José Mauro: Violão
Sebastião Marinho: Baixo
Juquinha e Mamão: Percussão
Wilson das Neves: Bateria
Naipe de Corda de Roberto Quartin
Arranjos e Regências: Gaya
Produção e Direção: Roberto Quartin 

Also, you may find the list of tracks, all of them composed by José Mauro and Ana Maria Bahiana:

01. Obnóxius (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)
02. Tarde de Núpcias (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)
03. Memória (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)
04. Ponte de Chamada (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)
05. As Aventuras Sentimentais de Espiroqueta Camargo (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)
06. Talismã (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)
07. Arraial da Lua Cheia (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)
08. Ancoradouro (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)
09. Canção da Casa Iluminada (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)
10. Apocalipse (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)
11. Exaltação e Lamento do Último Rei (José Mauro / Ana Maria Bahiana)

On the other hand, you will not find an explicit statement about who is singing, although, as far as the male voice is concerned, it is clear that it must be José Mauro. For the female voice occasionally featured on some tracks, my guess is that it is probably Ana Maria Bahiana who is also suspected of being the girl standing next to José Mauro on the front cover photograph.

As expected you will find a meaningless text, which is leading to the album:

A MEANINGLESS TEXT

COMMENTS AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION by Nilton Antonio Rodreigues Maia:

Concerning the music authors, José Mauro (melodies) and Ana Maria Bahiana (lyrics):

José has rare references. In contrast, Ana Maria is one of our best music journalists:

ANA MARIA BAHIANA (Ana Maria Pereira Bahiana) was born in 1950, in Rio de Janeiro. She lives in Los Angeles (USA).
She is a journalist and writer. Her specialities are Cinema and Popular Music. She has a career of more than 30 years and she wrote six books about Culture and Popular Music.
Presently, she works as Cinema reviewer of “Just Seen It” program (PBS television network) and has a UOL blog about Culture.

(Source: Wikipedia, texto em Português)

About the photo in the cover, I believe you are right.

I have confirmed in the blog SOUL ART that the singer is José Mauro.
But the female voice remains a mystery. Although Ana Maria isn’t a singer, perhaps she could be the female voice in LP.
I’ll try to contact her to clarify this point.
In the post comments, I had the good surprise to know José Mauro was alive at that date- 4/30/2014 – and living in Rio de Janeiro. The comment was posted by José Mauro‘s brother named Marcelo.

REVIEW AND + by Bossanov:
It’s really great happy Hammond sound! Slightly similar to Wilson das Neves’ “Juventude 2000” and other dancing music of that time. Almost all of the crew are real “Os Cobras”!
Add some info about Fernando – he is Fernando Jorge Semi Maxnuk (or Maxnuck), member of Zumba Cinco, also working witn Leny Andrade in Rio, Bossa e Balanço show (Mario Castro Neves, piano; Fernando Maxnuk, vibrafone; Edson Lobo, contrabaixo;e Antonio Carlos Leite, bateria) and with Orlandivo.
