A few days ago I stumbled upon a fresh blog about Leny Eversong run by Mateus Augusto called: Leny Eversong A FABULOSA! which started posting articles, video links related to Leny Eversong and hopefully soon also downloads of some of her music. By chance, at the same time Mateus contacted me by mail and we had some talks about Leny.
.
He accepted my invitation to make his selection of the artist he devoted his blog to.

So here it is:

Minha Sylvia (selection by Ademar de Aguiar)

Everybody who visits Parallel Realities knows who Ademar is as well as he knows and enjoys his good deeds in transferring vinyl to mp3. This time all he had to do was to accept my invitation to make his selection of his favorite artist and let me collect the tracks he has chosen, compile them and create a cover…
.
So here is his selection of his favorite artist: Sylvia Telles:
.

MINHA SYLVIA BY ADEMAR
.
Ademar also included two additional tracks in case that I do not have a track that he has chosen in my collection, but fortunately I have all that Sylvia has ever recorded (at least I think so).
So I thought that it might be a good idea to put those two tracks inside another zip, include a similar cover as the one illustrated above and create a compacto:
.
Tracks:
.
01. Mágoa (Tom Jobim / Marino Pinto)
02. Castigo (Dolores Duran)

Nana Caymmi Canta Paulo César Pinheiro (selection by 300 Discos)

This is a selection by 300 Discos, a site which publishes recordings selected by experts on Brazilian music and gives download links to them wherever they are posted.
Now 300 Discos is making its own selection of music that it recommends:
A combination of two artists: Brazilian diva Nana Caymmi and composer Paulo César Pinheiro:
.
Nana Caymmi Canta Paulo César Pinheiro – uma seleção por 300 Discos
.
Here is a text (both in English and Portuguese) written by 300 Discos:
.
Nana Caymmi is one of the singers I like most. In addition to her unique voice, her repertoire presents some of the main Brazilian composers. It is very difficult to make a selection containing only a small number of her songs. I then changed the problem. Instead of selecting the songs using only my personal taste, why not make a choice based on the songs composer? Or, as the lyrics of her songs are very elaborate, why not choose a single lyricist? Knowing that Nana recorded many beautiful songs from – in my humble opinion – the best live Brazilian music lyricist, I decided to make this selection, with Nana singing songs with Paulo Cesar Pinheiro lyrics.
.
Nana Caymmi é uma das cantoras que mais gosto. Além de possuir uma voz privilegiada, em seu repertório estão presentes alguns dos principais compositores brasileiros. Por isto, é muito difícil fazer uma seleção com um número pequeno de suas músicas. Resolvi, então, modificar o problema. Ao invés de escolher as músicas por critérios unicamente de gosto pessoal, por que não fazer uma escolha baseada no compositor? Ou ainda, como as letras de suas músicas são muito elaboradas, por que não escolher as de um único letrista? Sabendo que a Nana gravou inúmeras músicas lindas daquele que, na minha opinião, é o maior letrista vivo da música brasileira, resolvi fazer esta seleção, com a Nana cantando músicas com letras do Paulo César Pinheiro:
.
01. Coração Sem Saída (Dori Caymmi & Paulo César Pinheiro)
02. Senhorinha (Guinga & Paulo César Pinheiro)
03. Rastro De Perfume (Ivor Lancellotti & Paulo César Pinheiro)
04. Sem Companhia (Ivor Lancellotti & Paulo César Pinheiro)
05. Sem Poupar Coração (Dori Caymmi & Paulo César Pinheiro)
06. Flor Das Estradas (Dori Caymmi & Paulo César Pinheiro)
07. Desenredo (Dori Caymmi & Paulo César Pinheiro)
08. Violão (Sueli Costa & Paulo César Pinheiro)
09. Saudade De Amar (If Ever) (Dori Caymmi & Paulo César Pinheiro) (4:13)
10. Estrela Da Terra – com Boca Livre – (Dori Caymmi & Paulo César Pinheiro)
11. Flor Da Bahia (Dori Caymmi & Paulo César Pinheiro)
12. Vale a Pena (Sueli Costa & Paulo César Pinheiro)
