Luiz Americano – Chora Saxofone (1958)

RCA Victor BBL 1005

The other (first) career album by sax player and composer Luiz Americano (with regional) completes his discography consisting (as far as I know) of two Lp records.

Worth mentioning is, by the way, Elmo Barros‘ long and informative text about Luiz on the back cover.

Worth mentioning is also that Luiz Americano‘s second career album has been posted more than a year ago in this parallel reality and the link still works.

So do the following compositions:

01. Lágrimas de Virgem (Luiz Americano)
02. Numa Seresta (Luiz Americano)
03. Suely (Eduardo Patané)
04. Léa (Luiz Americano)
05. Assim Mesmo (Luiz Americano)
06. É do Que Há (Luiz Americano)
07. Lêda (Luiz Americano)
08. Tempero da Chiquinha (Luis de Souza / M. H. Santos)
09. Negrinha (Joubert de Carvalho)
10. Valina (Luiz Americano / Daniel Lustosa)
11. Choro de Caetetu (M. H. Santos / Salin Salomão)
12. Garrincha (Luiz Americano)

Luiz Americano e Seu Conjunto – Solos de Saxofone e Clarinete (1959)

RCA Victor BBL 1049

Tonight, sax and clarinet player Luiz Americano has his premiere on Parallel Realities with his second album (out of altogether two + countless 78 rpms) recorded back in 1958.

Frankly speaking, I did not know anything about him and his career, but the long and informationfilled text printed on the back cover, written by Elmo Barros, put an end to my ignorance.

I suggest you also read it while enjoying these masterfully played tracks:

01. Luis Americano de Passagem Pela Arábia (Luiz Americano)
02. Um Chorinho Em Serenata (Paulo Patrício)
03. Melancolia (Henriqueta Ribeiro)
04. Fervoroso (Miguel Lima)
05. Antigamente Era Assim (Luiz Americano / Rogério Lucas)
06. Luis Americano Em Brasília (Luiz Americano / Rogério Lucas)
07. Intrigas no Boteco do Padilha (Luiz Americano)
08. Modulando (Gerôncio Cardoso)
09. Borboleta Azul (Luis Soberano / O. Cazzaneo)
10. Lamento Triste (José Reis / Osvaldo Barbosa)
11. Encontro Com Sandoval (Fats Elpidio)
12. Luis Americano no Lido (Luiz Americano)
