Quincas e Os Copacabanas – Das 11 As 4 (1959)

Odeon MOFB 3062

Tenor sax player Al Quincas with and without Os Copacabana can be found in this and the other reality, but the Lp I have the chance to present now, I can not remember having even seen anywhere before.

In the linear notes written by Lucio Rangel you may read all you wanted to know about Coleman Hawkins but were afraid to ask and he even adds a few lines about Al Quincas and this album, so I suggest (as usual in such cases) to read it.

Anyway, para dançar is my choice of instrumental music, unfortunately almost impossible to find performed nowadays, so I suggest (as usual in such cases) to enjoy it preferably on the dance floor, but an easy chair and speakers will also do the job needed to enjoy:

01. O Apito no Samba (Luiz Bandeira / Luis Antônio)
02. Rico Vacilon (Rosendo Ruiz)
03. Tenderly (Walter Gross / Jack Lawrence)
04. Vai Astor (Vadico)
05. Torero (Renato Carosone / Nisa)
06. Pigalle (G. Ulmer)
07. Jambrando (José Marinho)
08. El Reloj (Roberto Cantoral)
09. Harlem Nocturne (Earle Hagen / Dick Rogers)
10. Natureza Bela (Felisberto Martins / Henrique Mesquita)
11. Andalucia (Ernesto Lecuona)
12. La Vie En Rose (Pierre Louiguy / Edith Piaf)

THE VARIOUS DANCERS’ MUSIC

DETECTIVE WORK by Bossanov:

Joe Hammond“… Not Brazilian sounding name… Nickname of Hammond player? Joe = Joseph =Jose= Ze!!! May be Ze Maria (that time on Continental label)?

Next step – one and only LP of Joe Hammond was released 1962 on Philips with 4 tunes, compossed by… Ze Maria!!! So, IMHO, Ze Maria is Joe Hammond. 

BREAKING NEWS FROM MOSCOW by Bossanov: 

As a Russian I feel it necessary to comment on “Noites de Moscou“, one of the most popular song from my country in the world. For some strange reasons all brazilian versions of it except one (see Instituto Memoria Musical Brasileira) credit it to great composer of Soviet Russia Isaac Dunayevsky, but in reality (not parallel) it is the song of another great composer of that period – Vassily Solovyov-Sedoy!!!
