RCA Victor BBL 1177

No secret that Fats Elpidio is one of my favourite piano players and his albums are frequently played at my place, so it is not surprising that once more I checked my huge Zaccariasfolder to find and burn even more of his music to CD.
While doing so, I discovered hidden in another folder of another album by Zaccarias which I probably moved there by mistake.
Anyway, as it was hidden I did not post it, but now I am doing it with great pleasure.

Celso Murilo e Seu Ritmo – Sambas na Passarela (1961)

Pawal P-20.002

Thanks to Andreas Dünnewald, the author of the book: Brazilliance – Record Covers of Brazil (1952-1977), I am gradually nearing the 18+ tag for Parallel Realities. Yesterday he sent me this rarity wrapped in countless beautiful and not too heavily dressed ladies, fronted by Angela Maria or a lookalike of hers. 
After hours of staring at the artwork, I also found time to listen to organ player Celso Murilo‘s debut album, recorded in 1961.

You may do the same. Above is the front cover and below are the compositions performed:

01. Boato (João Roberto Kelly)
02. Atire A Primeira Pedra (Ataulfo Alves / Mário Lago)
03. Murmúrio (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio)
04. Jarro da Saudade (Mirabeau / Daniel Barbosa / Geraldo Blota)
05. Samba Triste (Baden Powell / Billy Blanco)
06. Samba na Passarela (Luis Gonçalves / Nilton Valle)
07. Guarde A Sandália Dela (Germano Mathias / Sereno)
08. Volta (Djalma Ferreira / Luiz Bandeira)
09. Dizem Por Aí (Manoel da Conceição / Alberto Paz)
10. Fica Comigo (Luis Antônio)
11. A Fonte Secou (Monsueto / Tufic Lauar / Marcléo)
12. Zelão (Sérgio Ricardo)

Distracted, I almost forgot to mention the musicians:

Celso Murilo (Órgão, Piano)
Geraldo (Violão)
Célio (Baixo)
Bituca (Bateria)
Rubens (Pandeiro)
Cazuza (Cuíca),
Humberto (Agogô)
Wayne (Tamborim)

THE APPROPRIATE LINK

QUESTION by Milan Filipović:

Angela or not Angela, that is now the question.

MORE REALITIES by Brazilliance

Some trivia unveiled to add some more realities:

Nine songs from this album were reissued on Conjunto Balambossa’s “Samba ao Vivo” (Coledisc CD012): Samba Triste, Boato, Volta, Murmúrio, Dizem Por Aí, Fica Comigo, Falsa Baiana, Fiz o Bobão and Zelão. The rest of “Samba ao Vivo” was compiled from Celso Murilo’s “Órgão e Ritmo” aka “Convida a Dançar” (1963, Moeda Quebrada, O Amor em Paz) and Fats Elpidio’s “Samba da Madrugada” (1962, Na Roda do Samba).

Five songs from this album, Samba Triste, Quem Manda na Minha Vida, Volta, Boato and Zelão, were also compiled on the uncredited album “Samba Exportação” (Itamaraty ITAM-7079, c. 1970) which also contains songs from Celso Murilo’s “Ritmos na Passarela” and “Ferias no Drink

Sacha e Seu Conjunto – Seven To Seven With Sacha (1960)

RСA Viсtor ВВL 1085

This long sought and until now impossible to find LP by Sacha Rubin has been gathering dust on my Santa Claus list since the moment I heard Sacha‘s music for the first time.

Now thanks to Pedro & 300 discos it is finally available for us all.

The list of musicians accompanying Sacha‘s piano are:

Maurílio (Piston)
Cipó (Saxofone)
Dom Um Romão (Bateria)
Luis Marinho (Contrabaixo)
Gilberto (Pandeiro)
Rubens (Agogô)
Barão (Percussão)

By the way, while searching all over the net to find this album by Sacha, I ran into something that was, from my point of view, intriguing enough to ask if anyone knows anything about it, or maybe has the recording and is willing to share it:
On Mercado Livre I found out, illustrated by a cover, that Cipó E Seu Conjunto had recorded an album together with singer(?) Murilinho called Seven To Seven No Sacha’s, full of compositions by Cole Porter.
By typing the name Murilinho in the Memoria Musical search, I found only this one album.

The questions:

1. Why is this album not listed in Cipó‘s discography, nor in his collaborations list?
2. Who is Murilinho? Is he a singer?
3. Is this a live recording with audience in Sacha‘s nightclub?
4. Does Sacha play an instrument on this album?
6. Do you have it?

While trying to find answers to these questions I am enjoying:

LADO 1:

1. ‘Til Tomorrow   (Jerrу Вoсk / Sheldon Нarniсk)

2. The Verу Thought Of You   (Raу Noble)
