A various artists type of recording, on which various artists are performing compositions by the great Brazilian composer Jair Amorim mostly composing together with Evaldo Gouveia.
This tandem is one of my all time favourites, especially their Cantiga de Quem Está Só sung by Marisa Gata Mansa is an absolute highlight and have often played it over and over again after I heard for the first time (a long time ago).

Enjoy the good selection of compositions and performers:

01. Serenata da Chuva (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia) Roberto Silva

Marisa Gata Mansa, Ernani Filho e Carminha Mascarenhas – Em Cada Estrela Uma Cancao (1961)

Copacabana CLP 11191

Any pretext to post or re-post anything by Marisa Gata Mansa is, from my point of view, a good pretext:
Now we have finally a Pedro transfer from a cleaner disc than the previous one posted here, so I am sure all hard-core Marisa, Carminha, Ernâni, and, of course, composer Newton Mendonça‘s fans have a reason to open a bottle of champagne again.

You may look up the previous post of this LP, with a list of musicians and a still working link to the Loronix copy of this album in another reality from which also a link leads to Zeca‘s original text about this tribute to composer Newton Mendonça.

Here is just the list of compositions and their respective performers:

01. Foi A Noite (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça) Ernâni Filho
02. Canção do Pescador (Newton Mendonça) Marisa Gata Mansa
03. Canção do Azul (Newton Mendonça) Marisa Gata Mansa
04. Só Saudade (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça) Ernâni Filho
05. Caminhos Cruzados (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça) Marisa Gata Mansa
06. Seu Amor, Você (Newton Mendonça) Marisa Gata Mansa
07. Luar e Batucada (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça) Ernâni Filho

REMARK by Silvestre:
Nesse Lp, onde na contracapa, dá-se o crédito do piano para o músico Chaim Levack, houve um grande engano da gravadora, pois quem toca o orgão Hmmomd b3, sem dúvida alguma é o musico Walter Wanderley, e na contra capa nem seu nome consta, tremenda “mancada”da gravadora.

Marisa Gata Mansa – Água_Viva (1981)

While finishing the uploads and checking of my files, I noticed a folder with videos where I found some 20 minutes of a TV show recorded 1981 for TVЕRJ (whatever that might be) called Нistorias de MРB – Рrograma Águа Vivа
The performer is Marisa Gata Mansa, as you might have guessed by the title of this post as well as by the cover above, found in a parallel reality.
The sound is not exactly Hi Fi but I touched it up just a bit to eliminate some noise and to cut out the starting and ending jingle as well as the anouncer’s text.

Marisa is singing:

1. Lеораrdо (Vitаl Limа)
2. O Que Será (À Flor da Реle) (Сhiсo Вuarque)
3. Sozinhos (Ivоr Lаnсellotti / Dеlсio Саrvalho)

Marisa Gata Mansa – Rarities

While fixing links and uploading to Deposit I ran into two compilations by Marisa Gata Mansa I posted in Janurary and February 2009. Both of them, compiled in an apparent haste, had some tracks which, as pointed out by lots of visitors of Parallel Realities, were performed by artists other than Marisa. I promised to fix and re-upload the albums, but kept forgetting about it…
Now finally I checked and rearranged the tracks and put them all on one LP (produced at the Parallel Realities Studio, as you might have guessed).

The tracks are numbered as follows:

01. Marisa Gata Mansa Fala Sobre Dolores Duran (Radio Brazil)
02. Nao Me Culpe (Radio Brazil)
03. Voce Esteve com o Meu Bem 1953
04. Amor Perfeito (com Clara Nunes)
05. Voce e linda
06. Quem Vem do Alto (dueto com Emilio Santiago)
07. Juliana
08. Teresinha
09. A Promessa

Маrisа Gаtа Маnsа – Viаgеm (1973)

Оdеоn SМОFВ 3768

This album by Маrisа was among the first I downloaded from loronix several years ago. At that time, the copy was over cleaned and metallic sounding. Efforts to find a better sounding one proved fruitless until Zeca provided another clear and undamaged transfer and posted it as flас.
At the moment, this beautifully covered comeback of Маrisа from a long period of inactivity is unavailable anywhere due to the mass closure of sites with music in general.
Last evening I had a guest at my place and we enjoyed this album very much, so I decided to re-post it here.
As I upgraded my traditionally slow and unreliable internet connection to a 4x faster one, I am in a comfortable position to make this re-post with the original flас tracks as I found on loronix, together with his perfect cover scans. But I split the package into 2 аrсhivеs.

Take a trip looking at the poetic cover while playing:

01. Viаgеm (João de Aquino / Paulo César Pinheiro)
02. Рrа Você Gostar De Мim (Taí) (Јоubert de Саrvаlho)
03. Cadeira Vazia (Luiz Сarlаs Sá / Zé Rоdrix / Guаrаbyrа)
04. Ingênuo (Рixinguinha / Вenedito Lасеrda / Раulo Сésar Рinheiro)
05. Perguntas (Јоусе Моreno)

Marisa Gata Mansa e Denise Duran – Canções e Saudades de Dolores (1960)

If there is an album which I would nominate as a candidate for the most important album recorded in Brasil (from my far-away, eccentric, Serbian point of view) then it is, without much doubt, this obscure and forgotten LP recorded, after the passing away of Dolores Duran, by her best friend Marisa Gata Mansa and her sister Denise Duran.
This album I downloaded a long time ago from loronix, but it was transferred from a faulty copy and had an incorrigible undertone on some tracks. When it appeared once more on my good friend’s site (Simon Boutman‘s legendary Microgrooves) I downloaded it once more.
Simon cleaned the scratches, but this inevitably removed also some sound frequencies, so I asked him if he could send me the uncleaned copy, which he kindly did.
I spent quite some time manually cleaning the heaviest scratches one by one in order to avoid even the slightest loss of sound. The lesser scratches I left untouched.
As Simon‘s site is gone once more (I am sure that it will re-appear sooner or later) I have taken myself the liberty to post the album here as I received it from him, minus several heavy scratches.

Enjoy it as I did while listening to these songs composed by Dolores Duran:

01. Tome Continha de Voce – Marisa
02. Ceu Particular – Denise Duran
03. Leva-me Contigo – Marisa
04. Quem Foi – Denise Duran
05. Nao me Culpe – Marisa
06. Por Causa de Voce – Denise Duran
07. Ideias Erradas – Marisa
08. Olhe o Tempo Passando – Denise Duran
09. Fim de Caso – Marisa
10. Noite de Paz – Denise Duran
11. Estrada do Sol – Marisa
12. Solidao – Marisa

Marisa – Encontro de Amor (1976) with Terra Trio

No need to stress agin the fact that I really love Marisa Gata Mansa and that any pretext for posting her albums is good enough from my point of view, but anyway I must express my opinion that this live recording by her is far more powerful and dramatic than her previous 3 albums she recorded influenced by the pretentious composer & piano player she unfortunately was married to.
This album was originally found on the great loronix site, so consider it as a re-post.

The compositions flow as follows:

01. Começaria Tudo Outra Vez (Gonzaguinha)
02. Um Favor (Lupicínio Rodrigues)
03. Não Adianta Chorar (Fernando Luis da Costa)
04. Castigo (Dolores Duran) — Por Causa de Você (Dolores Duran / Tom Jobim) — Solidão (Dolores Duran) — A Noite do Meu Bem (Dolores Duran) – Dolores Duran Tribute
05. Saudade Vai-te Embora (Julio de Souza)
06. Cobras e Lagartos (Sueli Costa / Hermínio Bello de Carvalho)
07. Sabiá Lá na Gaiola (Hervé Cordovil / Mário Vieira)
08. Chuva Gente Carnaval (Ivor Lancellotti) Participação: Ivor Lancellotti
09. Gota D’água (Chico Buarque)

No need to write the original text as found on loronix here, as Órfãos do Loronix is doing it anyway on his site, but I will quote just one sentence from Zeca‘s text:

Marisa Gata Mansa – Compacto (random date in a parallel reality)

While opening my blogger dashboard the previous time I noticed that the next post will be post No. 800… A round number of posts, which does not exactly call for a celebration (as it is not eg 1000), but is quite convenient as a shameless pretext to post another compacto by Marisa Gata Mansa, one of my very favorite divas.
Yes, I know that such a compacto does not exist here, but cold logic says it does in one of the countless parallel realities co-existing, invisible to the untrained eye, one beside the other.
The good part of this story is that neither of the two tracks can be found anywhere, neither as part of a career album, EP or compacto:

1. Beija-flores (Amor Perfeito) – com Clara Nunes
2. Ninguém sabe de nós – ao vivo

Marisa Gata Mansa – Leopardo – First edition (1982)

A few years ago I posted Marisa Gata Mansa’s Leopardo, a 1992 reissue of the original album that I am posting now, with two added bonus tracks. Several months before the closing of loronix, Zeca sent me a mail telling me that he has found the first edition of Leopardo, in a mint shape, with even a wax seal covering the hole in the middle of the record, asking me if I do not mind that he posts it on loronix. He even uploaded it for me.
I know that Zeca avoided to post recordings that were posted on other sites but I was surprised that he asked at all as it is another release, another cover, another tracklist and another vinyl rip. In short another recording. I told him all that and that of course he should post it on loronix. He said he would post it as soon as he finishes the reconstruction of the back cover.
Why he did not post it is still a mystery to me, but Zeca stopped updating his site a few months later.
After some years of considering whether I should present it or not, I decided to do it.

Enjoy a perfect transfer and superior sound as Marisa sings these songs:

01. Leopardo (Vital Lima)
02. Sozinhos (Ivor Lancellotti / Delcio Carvalho)
03. Quem Vem do Alto (Delcio Carvalho) – com Emílio Santiago
04. Com a Cara do Dono (Vital Lima)
05. Estrela Cine-teatro (Rosa Passos / Fernando de Oliveira)
06. O Nеgóсio É Amаr (Саrlоs Lуrа / Dolorеs Durаn)
07. A Estrela (Raul Travassos / Silva Ferreira)

Only the first song, Viagem is part of this album, while the other three (beautiful) songs are not included in any of her career LPs or compilations.
Zecalouro did not write anything about this recording, so no text of his is included.

Marisa Gata Mansa – Marisa, a Gata Mansa (1975)

Every time I visited Loronix‘s site after it stopped updating (I do it often to download some music I did not hear before or to get some additional information), I had the impression of entering an abandoned high tech space station, where, with the passage of time, one feature after the other stops functioning. First it was the search engine, then the counter… etc.
Yesterday I received a shock when I found Loronix stripped off all pictures and download links. The only thing that is still there are Zecalouro‘s texts.
Thousands of rarities, most of which were a Loronix exclusivity, vanished overnight, leaving the world without any possibility to download and listen to the best music ever recorded.
Even me, whose behaviour, when music is concerned, is similar to the way a hamster acts, have not downloaded everything that there is and now I am sorry I did not.
On the other hand I did download all cantoras and most of the instrumental music, some of which is so good that I think that it shame to be forgotten again.
Like this album I am re posting from Loronix today, which was the music that turned me from a slightly amused listener into a hard core fan of Brasilian music and culture from the moment I heard it for the first time.
Marisa Gata Mansa‘s compilation album released in 1975, containing tracks from three recordings: Canções e Saudade de Dolores, Marisa simplesmente and Little Club Apresenta Marisa, all three released around 1960.
The compilation itself is done flawless and the songs were handpicked, so that I could not notice that it is a compilation, it sounded like a perfect conceptual career LP to me.
.
In short: I took the liberty to post this album here as it is not available anymore anywhere else and I will re post also some other gems that are my absolute favorites.
.
The cat meows as follows:
.
01. Por Causa de Você (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
02. Ternura Antiga (Ribamar / Dolores Duran)
03. Fim de Caso (Dolores Duran)
04. Cantiga de Quem Está Só (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia)
05. Céu e Mar (Johnny Alf)
06. Idéias Erradas (Ribamar / Dolores Duran)
07. Amor Em Paz (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
08. Estrada do Sol (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)

Marisa Gata Mansa – Little Club Apresenta Marisa (1961)

Marisa Gata Mansa‘s Little Club Apresenta Marisa is a recording I have downloaded a few years ago from lornix. Unfortunately, several tracks were heavily damaged. Analysing them in audio editing software proved that on those tracks one channel was drastically worse than the other. As it is a mono recording, I simply eliminated the damaged channel and duplicated the passable one. This way this (beautiful) LP is sounding better than before. No additional cleaning was applied as I did not want to remove any sound frequencies from Marisa’s voice.
By the way, I think it is needless to stress the point that Marisa Gata Mansa is one of my favorite singers.
.
Songs:
.
01. Chuva para molhar o sol (Édson Borges – Agostinho dos Santos)
02. Croquemitufle (Gilbert Becaud)

HAPPY NEW YEAR first of all.
.
This concert was held 2003, in a theatre in Rio de Janeiro as one of three charity shows and was never released neither as vinyl nor as CD. Actually, it is the last performance of Marisa Gata Mansa. I found the recording of it some time ago and finally decided to create a cover and post it as a Parallel Realities Studio Production on the 1.1.2010.

Marisa Gata Mansa and Marcello Gaspar performed several separate songs, voice and guitar.
.
Here is the track listing:
.
1. Marcello Gaspar:
– O que é amar
2. Marcello Gaspar:
– Olha – Explode coração- Gota de sangue- As rosas não falam
3. Marisa Gata Mansa:
– Quando tu passas por mim – Se é tarde me perdoa – Você e eu – Doce presença
4. Marcello Gaspar:
– Corcovado – Mania de você
5. Marisa Gata Mansa:
– Tributo a dolores duran- Viagem
6. Marcello Gaspar:
Saigon- Nunca mais

START 2010 WITH MARISA & MARCELLO (new corrected version)

P.S. Marcello Gaspar has been so kind as to take part in my “Seleção” series. You can find his selecion of Dalva de Andrade here.

Uzgred:
“Gata Mansa” je nadimak koji je Marisi nadenuo jedan novinar nakon intervjua zbog mirnog načina na koji je govorila…
(“Gata Mansa” na portugalskom znači “pitoma mačka”)

Marisa Gata Mansa – Canta Newton Mendonca (1961)


Svojevremeno je na loronix-ovom blogu objavljen album Em Cada Estrela uma Cancao, posvecen prerano preminulom brazilskom kompozitoru Newtonu Mendonci. Izmedju ostalih na njemu su se nalazile i cetiri kompozicije Newtona Mendnoce koje izvodi meni (ocigledno) veoma draga Marisa Gata Mansa. Iz neobjasnjivog razloga album je nestao sa loronix-a i trenutno se ne moze naci nigde na mrezi (koliko mi je poznato). Da bar malo ublazim taj nedostatak….

Some time ago on lorox, a tribute to Newton Mendonca, a great composer who has passed away too early, was posted called: Em Cada Estrela uma Cancao. For mysterious reasons this great record vanished form loronix and is now impossible to find on the web (as far as I know). So here are four renditions of Mendonca’s compositions by Marisa Gata Mansa (obviously) one of my favorite singers.

  1. Cancao do Pescador
  2. Cancao do Azul
  3. Caminhos Cruzados
  4. Seu Amor Voce

The complete album reapeared on loronix.

Marisa Gata Mansa – Collected renditions of Dolores Duran’s songs (1960)

This is the first post on this blog and there is a special reason for it.
After years and years of living with music and being involved in various musical projects (some of which will be presented in some later posts), I thought that I heard all that there is to hear, and that every new song has the “Allready heard” flavour.
Then, quite by chance, on Loronix’s blog, I stumbled upon Marisa Gata Mansa, a brasilian diva and was fascinated.
I took the liberty of making this compilation and creating a 5.1 surround mix by collecting Marisa out of “Canções e Saudade de Dolores” (1960), a tribute to Dolores Duran, by Marisa Gata Mansa and Denise Duran.
As the 5.1 surround is too heavy to be up- and downloaded, here is the mp3 version of the tracks as they were originally downloaded from Loronix.

Track listing

1 – Tome Continha de Voce
2 – Leva-me Contigo
3 – Nao me Culpe
4 – Por Causa de Voce
5 – Ideias Erradas
6 – Fim de Caso
7 – Estrada do Sol
8 – Solidao
