Tito Romero e Sua Orquestra – Bolero Maravilhosos (1959)

Polydor LPNG 4045

Some time ago, I was contacted by Vinicius Carvalho Veleda, a young historian from Pelotas, Rio Grade do Sul, who is making a research about João Adelino Leal Brito (Britinho, Pierre Kolmann, Franca Villa, Tito Romero):

”   I’m interested in the pianist for three main reasons:

   First because we’re related – he is the brother of my grandfather, my father’s father. I always heard stories from my father about “Uncle musician who lived Rio de Janeiro.” But my family has just “everyday” memories. Britinho as it exited from Pelotas to the state capital Porto Alegre very young, around 19 or 20 years old. After that, the memories are more of the days he came to vacation here. Usually at Carnival time in February.
   The second reason is because it is the city of Pelotas. We know that Britinho had some recognition, prestige, fame. Was requested on many radio stations and record labels. But it was from Porto Alegre. Here it seems in the city of Pelotas he left very little trace, evidence. By this I mean that few recognize here, only the staff involved with the culture of the city. And generally remember him more at the carnival, on vacation, not previously while learning piano.
   The last reason is because I am a historian. For some years, at least since 2008 that I organize materials (sound files, covers – they have lots of information, bibliography, family memories, etc.). I’ll try later this year to enter the postgraduate course in History (Master) at the Federal University of Pelotas. My topic, research subject is Britinho.”

Vinicius sent me two published articles containing some results of his research about Britinho and he promised that, as his research is going on, he will send more results as they get discovered.
With his permission, I am enclosing both texts to the zip with Britinho‘s music recorded under one of his pseudonyms: Tito Romero.

While reading Vinicius‘ texts, enjoy Pedro‘s transfer of these gems: 

01. Teus Olhos Entendem os Meus (Haroldo Eiras / Victor Berbara)
02. Que Será (Marino Pinto / Mário Rossi)
03. Espere Um Pouco Mais (Waldir Machado)
04. Meu Sonho É Você (Altamiro Carrilho / Átila Nunes)
05. Falas de Amor Outra Vez (Raul Sampaio / Benil Santos)
06. Inspiração (Paulo Gesta / Oscar Bellandi)
07. A Voz do Violão (Francisco Alves / Horácio Campos)
08. Sou Eu (Rubens Machado)
09. Se a Saudade Falasse (Felisberto Martins / Mário Rossi)
10. Esmagando Rosas (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / David Nasser)
11. Porque Brilham os Teus Olhos (Fernando César)
12. Nunca Mais (Mário Jardim / José Garcia / Décio Magalhães)

His discography spans from 1947 to 1956. All of his 9 career albums have been released in 1955 and 1956.

The newest two career albums by Leal Brito have been released by СВS. What catches the eye at first sight when looking at the cover on this one from1965, as well as will happen with the visual artwork of the other one (from 1964) that will follow next, is that both are incomparable with the beauty of all previous Britinho‘s album covers.

Luckily, the music sounds good:

When renowned musicians play and record Para Dançar music, the resulting albums have a tremendous advantage over their other works for the simple reason that there are no artistic pretensions involved, as well as no starting ideas of the “Now I will create a masterpiece which will find it’s place in the history of music” kind, but are relaxed and play the melodies in a manner they feel like playing them, creating thus, unintentionally, real art.

This goes for Leal Вrito, alias Рiеrrе Коlmаnn as well as may others. You have the advantage to enjoy or to dismiss these, in a Para Dançar style, recorded tracks:

Marilena Cairo Canta Para Você (1956)

Sinter SLP 1086

If there is something that I would label as almost impossible, then it is the chance to find an album recorded during the golden years of Brazilian music (1955-1964) by a lady whom I have neither heard singing, nor have I previously even been aware of her existence.

But in the innumerable infinite parallel realities existing simultaneously one next to the other, everything that is possible is possible, especially if you have support from friends. Has been proven many times and is proven again today.

In short: When opening the newest package kindly sent to us by Pedro & 300 discos there she was:

Marilena Cairo, with her only album:  Canta Para Você, a 10 Inch recorded in 1956.

A short check on the net revealed the fact that Marilena Cairo was a radio singer, and that she has recorded at least ten 78 rpms and this solitary 10 Inch.
At the moment I can only guess why her career stopped after that: Probably because of a marriage.
There is also a text about her on the back cover of this album, altogether not very informative, so if somebody knows more he is welcome to share his knowledge. So are eventual owners of some of her other recordings willing to share them.

Here is the chance to get along with Marilena Cairo while she is singing these 8 songs under the musical direction of  Leal BritoBritinho”:

1. Fita Meus Olhos (Peterpan)
2. Folha Morta (Ary Barroso)
3. Os Rios Correm Pro Mar (Custódio Mesquita / Evaldo Ruy)
4. Ninguém Para Amar (Anísio Silva / C. Portela)
5. Quem Me Dera (Anísio Silva / C. Portela)
6. Aniversário Da Saudade (Aldacir Louro / Santos Garcia)
7. Se Eu Pudesse (José Maria de Abreu / Jair Amorim)
8. Eu Sei (Alberto Paz / Carlinhos)

Pierre Kolmann & Seu Conjunto – Para Dancar Compacto Duplo (1957)

If there is something I like, it is political incorrectness.
Here we go with a cover for a compacto duplo by Pierre Kolmann (an alias for Leal Brito or Britinho) which is as politically incorrect as can be.
First of all it displays a picture of an elegant, well dressed young gentleman which is in itself a bad example, and secondly this gentleman is lighting a cigarette and (displayed once more) holding the lit cigarette in his hand: A symbol of complete freedom of choice.
Bravo maestro!

The music?
Para dançar at it’s best…
Light your cigarettes and enjoy the compositions:
1. Maracangalha (Dorival Caymmi)
2. Summertime In Venice (A. Cicognini)
3. Que Será Será (Jay Livingston / Ray Evans)
4. Conceição (Jair Amorim / Valdemar de Abreu “Dunga”)
