Box Grande Baile Vol. 3 – Disco 5

Discastro GED 1015

This is the fifth and final album of the Box set Grande Baile vol. 3.
The volume 2 of the series exists (according to logic which says that where there are volumes 1 and 3, there simply must be a volume 2.

So far nobody I know has even seen it…

But don’t despair, sooner or later it may miraculously appear out of the blue and be presented here or somewhere else.

Has happened before.

NEVERENDING ALIASES by Brazilliance:
Lamento da Lavadeira” on this disc and “Água de Beber” on disc 4 of this volume are actually by saxophonist Moacyr ‘Bijú’ Marques. Both versions were originally released on his 1961 album “Samba 40 Graus”. In 1964, they were compiled on “Berimbau Sambas” credited to Conjunto Bembossa which is just another alias of Marques.

DISCASTRO by Brasilliance:

This album series is a mystery as Discastro, probably a subsidiary, is a label extremely hard to research. There are at least five volumes of this series, all with very similar though great art work.

Research gives the impression that Vol. 1, 2 and 5 feature colourful mixes of musicians while Vol. 3 and 4 feature only pianist Ruben and sax player Casé. In fact, at least two volumes were issued with different covers and track lists:

LINK 1,      LINK 2,      LINK 3,      LINK 4

Casé’s fine renditions of Carinho e Amor and Se Acaso Você Chegasse presented on this volume are in fact the ones from his 1960 album Samba Irresistível. Therefore, I assume that Grande Baile is a compilation series of previously issued recordings, maybe mixed with unreleased material. I don’t remember when or where but I once found a source claiming that Grande Baile Vol. 3 was released in 1966.

However, this is a series sporting splendid art work on the outside and pleasing sounds on the inside.
