Trio Irakitan – Sempre Alerta (1960)

Odeon MOFB 3179

I must confess that I was amazed when I saw the front cover of this album by the famous vocal Trio Irakitan. The obvious question bothering me was:

What trouble could have forced three grown up guys to dress like boy scouts?

Then I looked closer at the back cover and found a text signed by a certain Dr João Ribeiro dos Santos

The songs performed are:

01. Alerta (Benevenuto Cellini dos Santos)
02. A Árvore da Montanha (Tradicional)

Guio de Morais e Seu Conjunto – Gente Que diz de Balanco (1964)

Continental PPL 12131

I thought that it would be a good idea to complete Guio de Morais discography with the album from 1964 which was originally presented on Loronix ten years ago.
Well, here it is in form of a Loronix transfer. Zeca‘s text about it you may read on Órfãos do Loronix where it is reprinted.

The compositions are:

01. Só Vou de Balanço (João Roberto Kelly)
02. Gente Que Diz (Guio de Morais)
03. Balanço Zona Sul (Tito Madi)
04. Ela É Carioca (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
05. O Samba Deu Um Avanço (Célio Ferreira / Rolando Ferreira)
06. Samb’andando (Sérgio Carvalho / Paulo Bruce)
07. Tudo de Você (Paulo Sérgio Valle / Marcos Valle)
08. Quem Sabe É o Mar (Paulinho / Barbosa da Silva)
09. Samba Travesso (Norival Reis / Harli Teixeira)
10. Tão Só (Guio de Morais)
11. Carnaval Triste (Sérgio Carvalho / Paulo Bruce)
12. Barraco do José (Carlos Fortes)

TRACK LIST by Brazilliance:
Although being a really enjoyable album offering groovy performances, I find it quite mysterious because the track list is wrong wherever it appears online wether as download or listing. Interstingly, only very few remarks on this can be found like in the comments on Órfãos do Loronix

Unfortunately, the original vinyl or its original art work is hardly available which would be the best way to check. I never saw this album being offered on Mercado Livre or elsewhere which made me wonder if it ever existed. Surprisingly, a Japanese seller is currently showing a sold vinyl copy on his website but regrettably not showing pictures of the back cover or the vinyl itself. The picture of the front cover shows clearly a different order of song titles compared to the CD reissue, starting with Tudo de Você instead of Só Vou de Balanço. Also, the Continental logo on the original art work is a different version including the catalogue number PPL 12.131 which is missing on the CD reissue.

Obviously, the wrong track list including a song from a different album by a different group was created by sloppy work at the re-releasing label Paradise Masters:

01 – Só Vou de Balanço = Gente que diz
02 – Gente que diz = Balanço Zona Sul
03 – Balanço Zona Sul = Ela é Carioca
04 – Ela é Carioca = O Samba deu um Avanço
05 – O Samba deu um Avanço = Sambandando
06 – Samb’andando = Tudo de Você
07 – Tudo de Você = Quem Sabe é O Mar
08 – Quem Sabe é O Mar = Samba Travesso
09 – Samba Travesso = Tão Só
10 – Tão Só = Carnaval Triste
11 – Carnaval Triste = Barraco do José
12 – Barraco do José = Influência do Jazz from “Show de Bossa” by Corisco e Os Sambaloucos.

Which means “Só Vou de Balanço” is actually missing which is a pity since it’s a great tune.

At least, one thing is for sure: the flawless saxophone on Gente Que Diz de Balanço is by Moacyr Marques aka Bijú (as stated on his website.

COMMENT by Efe.Miranda:
Esse não é um disco qualquer: teria sido o primeiro LP de música popular editado em 12 polegadas no Brasil, pela lendária Etiqueta Rádio, de Petrópolis,RJ. Foi também o primeiro dos doze discos da série FEITO PARA DANÇAR, um sucesso fenomenal nos anos 50’s.
O grande pianista Waldir Calmon empresta toda a sua categoria em músicas do quilate de A Saudade Mata a Gente e Limelight, apenas para citar dois exemplos.
Em tempo: o correto nome do álbum seria apenas Feito para Dançar (sem o Nª 1), pois foi o primeiro lançamento e, na época, ainda sem a previsão de outros sequenciais.

Chantecler CMG-2326

Dulce Salles, another unknown lady singer with her only career album presented to us by Edson Mendes.

Here is a text about her by Edson:

Dulce Salles Cunha Braga was not a professional singer. In Brazil, she became known as a politician, having reached the position of Senator by the State of São Paulo.
In her youth she studied lyrical singing with Maestro Camargo Guarnieri and took classes of improvement with the great  American contralto Mary Anderson during her stay in Brazil in 1948.
Here she sings popular songs, in Portuguese and French.

The back cover is not the original, but the one used when the disc was released as CD in 1998. But it is almost identical to the original one.”

01. Andando p’ra frente  (Murilo Antunes Alves)
02. Amor em cinco tempos  (Mario Albanese / Armando B. Bastos)

Mário Pereira‘s focus of interest, clearly displayed on the front cover, is not his only one: He is also fond of playing clarinet, which is the main reason he is presented here.

His so far identified discography counts 6 albums released in the period from 1964 to 1969 + an independent CD release published in 1997.

The back cover offers no information about him and even less about the musicians playing with him.

The compositions / composers list is present and it is ordered like this:

01. Estou Esperando (Jair do Pandeiro / Waldemar José)
02. Niquinho no Samba (Niquinho / Othon Russo)
03. Fino da Roça (Niquinho / Mário Pereira)
04. Aquele Beijo (Welton Sant’Anna)
05. Ausência de Uma Solidão (Edvar Borges)
06. Choro do Cabeludo (Irio Nepomuceno / Irapuan Nepomuceno)

07. Gostosura (Zeno Clemente Rodrigues)
08. Pinguins no Baião (Irapuan Nepomuceno / Mário Pereira)
09. Psicose no Coco (Alexandre Alves / Zito de Souza)
10. Capichaba no Choro (Agenor Madureira / Joãozinho)
11. Chorinho ao Luar (Abel Ferreira)
12. Passo do Bobo (Magno Fernandes / Avelino Santos)

Dalila – Sensacao! (1964)

Polydor  LPNG – 4086

About the existence of any career album by the fantastic and good looking samba singer Dalila I had no idea until a short time ago when I opened my mail and found the server link for her first album, sent to us by Edson Mendes.

Edson has also written a short text about her life and career:

“Brazilian singer DALILA da Silva Costa was born in 1945 in São Gabriel, Rio Grande do Sul (RS) and raised in Porto Alegre (RS), where she began her artistic career singing at Rádio Charrua. Later, she also appeared in Rádio-TV Gaúcha.
In 1963, he moved to Rio de Janeiro, where she participated and won a contest for newcomers in the program «Um Cantor Por Um Milhão» and the prize was the recording of this disc in 1964 The next year she recorded her second LP “Dalila muito mais” (also for Polydor).
She made seasons at Fred’s and Top Club nightclubs and her career was developed in radios, televisions and clubs.She sang for the royal courts and the presidents of Santiago, Basra, London and Stockholm. Dalila performed and toured throughout South America with leading contemporary artists and musicians and also made a number of famous TV shows along with football legend Pele in Buenos Aires. She signed a contract with the famous show-dance group Brasil Tropical in the early 1970s. The group of approximately 40 members toured worldwide with Europe as a base. She lived in Rome and Barcelona.
DALILA was a resident in Sweden since 1984 and died of a heart attack in 2004.”

Som/Copacabana SOLP 40046

The Jordans have been already featured in this parallel reality but under another name: Aladdin Band, on an extra project album released in 1968.

As Antonio Aguillar has written a competent text about The Jordans which can be found on the back cover, I will just notice here that the photograph on the front cover perfectly describes the feeling and manner of these songs:

01. Bulldog (George Tomsco)
02. O Vôo da Abelha (Adpt. Aladin)
03. Kili Watch (G. Dersé / S. Mahr)
04. Twist Watch (Jimmy Torres)

The Fire Boys – Musica para a Jovem Guarda (N/D)

SBA/Musipop M-ADS 001

The previously to me unknown Jovem Guarda band The Fire Boys seemed to have only this one career album, released at an unknown date by SBA/Musipop.
After digging a bit deeper, the first impression turned out to be completely wrong as The Fire Boys are just an extra project false name of The Fevers, whose discography consists of compactos, albums, extra projects, collections and participations in a huge number, so huge that I gave up the idea of counting it..

The compositions performed on their Parallel Realities premiere are:

01. A Casa D’irene (Francesco Maresca / Francesco Pagano)
02. Emoção (Roberto Carlos / Erasmo Carlos)
03. Taboo (Margarita Lecuona)
04. Parei… Olhei (Rossini Pinto)

Severino Filho, Seu Coral e Sua Orquestra – Rio de Janeiro, Gosto de Voce Vol. 2 (1960)

Polydor LPNG 4062

Looking out of the window and enjoying the frozen Belgrade streets scenery with temperatures deeply below zero and without any sign that they might rise soon, I can clearly understand why Severino Filho likes Rio de Janeiro.
I also can not avoid shivering when imagining the the young, lightly dressed lady on the front cover in Belgrade this winter.

Anyway, warming up is possible for all by listening to:

01. Não Tenho Lágrimas (Max Bulhões / Milton de Oliveira)
02. Marimba (Agustín Lara)
03. Leblon (Alberto Paz / Severino Filho)
04. My Melancholic Baby (E. Burnet / G. A. Norton / Maybelle / E. Watson)
05. Luar de Paquetá (Freire Júnior / Hermes Fontes)
06. Lover (Richard Rodgers / Lorenz Hart)
07. Cidade de São Sebastião (Wilson Batista / Antônio Nássara)
08. Singin’ In The Rain (Nacio Herb Brown / Arthur Freed)
09. Meu Rio de Janeiro (Oscar Bellandi / Nelson Trigueiro)
10. Carioca 1954 (Ismael Netto / Antônio Maria)
11. Maracanã (Severino Filho)
12. Noites do Rio (José Maria de Abreu / Alberto Ribeiro)

About this release I can not tell you anything that you don’t already know, but Jason Fonseca can do it, so you may choose to read his text which is printed on the back cover.

I noticed that there were no comments for quite a long time lately which is unusual, so I decided to check it all out by sending a test comment on Parallel Realities just to see what will happen:
I found out that after Blogger changed it’s dashboard some time ago, the comment alert is no longer red and immediately visible when opening the dashboard.
Instead one has to first click on COMMENTS to open the comments drop down menu and after that click on AWAITING MODERATION.
Only then the list of all the pending comments appeared and I could approve and publish them.
Sorry for the delay, friends!

Joao Albertto (1988)

Not much that I can tell you about João Albertto, (on Memoria Musical) unlisted singer, except for the obvious fact that he has released at least one album (this one, for Continental).

Razao 7 – Linha Quente (1968)

Ritmos CODIL CDL 13.005

When I opened the folder containing this album I could not even figure out if the name of the band is Linha Quente or Razão 7 as nothing points to either direction.
A short search on the net revealed that Razão 7 is the name of the band, that the LP was released in 1968 and that it is probably their only career album, at least under that name.

The compositions performed are:

01. De Perna Bamba (Juarez Cabral)

Polydor LPNG 44.006

The third album of the Top Hits series of four by Orquestra Som-Bateau (The volumes 1 and 4 have been already presented in this and the other parallel reality).
Still no information about the orchestra and, as expected, the unsigned text on the back cover says absolutely nothing.

“Aaaah, I know now!” or “Who cares!” thoughts, relax and listen to:

Tania Maria e Seu Conjunto – Para Dancar Vol 2 (1963)

Entré/CBS 4013

Tânia Maria‘s first career album, a fascinating para dançar release from 1963, completely different from her later albums that I have had the opportunity to listen to.
Although this album has the Vol. 2 enumeration, it does not mean that Tânia Maria has anything to do with the Vol. 1, but our friend Gallo has, as the first album in the Entré/CBS para dançar series of two, features him and his conjunto wrapped in an almost identical cover as this one and all that is also presented in this reality.

Dance to, or just enjoy:

01. É Luxo Só (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
02. Choro Sim (Djalma Ferreira / Iza Ferreira)
03. Come September (Bobby Darin)
04. Chá-chá-chá da Moça (Haroldo Barbosa / Luis Reis)
05. Marise (Carlos Amorim / Miguel Miranda)
06. Stella By Starlight (Ned Washington / Victor Young)
07. Quem É (Silvio Lima / Maurílio Lopes)
08. El Reloj (Roberto Cantoral)
09. Stranger In Paradise (Robert Wright / George Forrest)
10. Rosário (Joaquim C. Reis)
11. Nunca Mais (Ed Lincoln / Silvio César)
12. Meu Nome É Ninguém (Haroldo Barbosa / Luis Reis)

A nice text about Tânia Maria on the back cover may be read (after opening the zip, of course).

Jair Pimentel – O Homem Show (1967)

Mocambo LP 40310

Jain Pimentel‘s latest career album, recorded in 1967, presenting, similar to his first one, his renditions of his compositions.
A nice text on the back cover, written by Mario Sabino, offers no more  sober facts than we already know from his previous albums presented not far away from here in this parallel reality, but explains his music best as can be done by words.
Of course, his music becomes, as expected, self-explaining the moment you turn on your speakers and listen to:

Victor Pilla Orquestra – Brazilian New Sound (1969)

Polydor LPNG 44.027

The only album by the Victor Pilla Orquestra, about which I can tell you as much or even less than you can tell me, as there is a possibility that, maybe, you have at least heard about them, or know something, while I have never heard about them nor do I know anything except for what might be deducted from the track list and front cover (which is less revealing than the back cover, but the back cover, although more revealing than the front cover gives no more facts or information than the unrevealing front cover does).

Confused? Download the album and take a look at the back cover…

After, the “Aaaaaah, I could have guessed!”, unpack also the music and enjoy:

01. Correnteza (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)

Tico-Tico No Galho Seco (1963)

Copacabana CLP 11301

Cavaquinho player and composer Tico-Tico has his premiere on Parallel Realities with his only career album, recorded in 1963. As far as I could find out his discography consists, besides the LP presented, of an collaboration album with Altamiro Carilho recorded at an unknown date and two 78 rpms.

A quite long and informative text, written by Sérgio Malta, can be read on the back cover, while the rendition of these compositions can be enjoyed after the download finishes:

01. A Moçada No Samba (Tico-Tico)
02. Tragédia de Bolso (Tico-Tico)
03. Orgulhosa (Tico-Tico)
04. Cavaquinho Transviado (Tico-Tico)
05. Teus Olhos (Tico-Tico)
06. Venina (Tico-Tico)
07. Marlene (Tico-Tico)
08. Na Corda Bamba (Tico-Tico / Altamiro Carrilho)
09. Harmonioso (Tico-Tico)

11. Desiludido (Tico-Tico)
12. Doidinho (Benedito Lacerda)



P.S. On Orquestra Copacabana – Nos Bailes da Minha Juventude (1961) presented here, the banjo player is credited as Tico-Tico. If it is the same one, I do not know, but his friend Altamiro Carilho is in charge of the studio direction, so this might be taken as an indice.

Imperial/Odeon IMP 30.025

As far as I can remember, this album by Astor Silva was posted on Loronix but for some mysterious reasons was not included on Órfãos do Loronix.
that means that I can not point to the usual location where Zeca‘s original text might be found.

Anyway, I am sure that the lack of competent information will not spoil your pleasure while listening to:

EDIT: I just discovered that Loronix has posted another album with the same lady’s same photograph on the front cover: Walter Wanderley‘s No Embalo do Samba, recorded under the false name Mike Falacao.
Probably, that’s the one I remembered…

This was the last post at Loronix and was a long time seen when you opened the website.

Wednesday, September 23, 2009 by Zecalouro:
Hello, good evening! I am very close to finish an important work to Loronix and also a key effort to bring some relief to the financial problems I’m facing this year. I would love to make the announcement now, but I need some final and necessary adjustments. It is only a matter of days, days of hard work by the way. Meanwhile, I would leave you in with a great record of one of the most important Brazilian instrumentalist, Astor Silva, the legendary trombonist and arranger recording with a fake name of Lord Astor. Let’s see.

This is Lord Astor e Sua Conjunto – E Danca (1961), for Imperial, the legendary Odeon door sales subsidiary. We know Imperial uses to reissue Odeon albums with another presentation, but so far I could not identify which original Astor Silva release this album belongs. This cover was also used on another Imperial release, Mike Falcao e Seu Conjunto – No Embalo do Samba (1966), which is Walter Wanderley recording with this fake name. Anyway, better stay with the outstanding Astor Silva playing leading a Conjunto — credited by mistake as an orchestra — of unknown musicians.

More texts about this album from the blogs: Eu Ovo and Toque Musical you may read here inside the comments.

Astor e Sua Orquestra – Um Brasileiro em Roma (1959)

Odeon MOFB 3078

Looks like Astor Silva has either visited Italy in 1959 or he has simply been inspired by Italian music (which was really great at that time) while recording this album accompanied by his orchestra.

If the inspiration was from flashbacks or fantasies you may try to figure out by listening to:

01. Ciribiribin (Pestalozza)
02. Arrivederci Roma (Renato Rascel / Pietro Garinei / Sandro Giovannini)
03. Come Prima (Mario Panzeri / Sandro Taccani / Vincenzo Di Paola)
04. Santa Lúcia Luntana (E. A. Mário)

ABOUT ASTOR by Mr Memory
Mestre dos metais e um compositor inspirado, Astor Silva, foi um grande arranjador marcando presença em discos de inúmeros artistas, dentre os quais, cito: Marisa Barroso, Luiz Eça, Elis Regina, Roberto Carlos, Os Ipanemas, Elza Soares, Orlando Dias, Lana Bittencourt, Sidney e Anísio Silva.

MARISA BARROSO by Milan Filipović:
The above comment by Mr Memory reminds me to remind you of another reality with two albums on which Astor Silva is backing Marisa Barroso .

Poly – Debut (1966)

EPIC BN-26193

Thanks to Stu Blagden, our friend from England, I am able to present a rarity by Poly (famous for his Hawaiian guitar playing) where he plays the classical bossa nova style guitar.

Note that the title Debut does not mean that it is Poly‘s first album, but it is, I believe, his US debut described on the front cover as The Exciting Premiere of the Brazilian Guitar Virtuoso Poly (released by Epic in 1966?).

Stu could not tell me the names of the musicians backing Poly, but he included the track list together with the names of the composers:

01. Um Punhadinho de Estralas (Mario Albanese)
02. A Brazilian In New York (O. Izar)
03. E Luxo Só (Ary Barroso)
04. O Caminho das Estrelas (Mario Albanese / C. Pereira)
05. Em Meus Braços… A Ilusao (Mario Albanese)
06. Brazilian Summer (M. Vaughan)
07. Sonhando Azul (Mario Albanese / C. Pereira)
08. Maria Ninguem (Carlos Lyra)
09. Canção de Poly (Z. de Mello)
10. Nois Dois e a Tarde (Mario Albanese)
11. Bate Caração (Z. de Mello)
12. Domingo Sentimental (Z. De Mello / Poly)

SOUND EDIT by Edson Mendes:

There was a problem with the edition of tracks 9 and 10: track 9 is complete but it contains part of track 10, and track 10 is missing its initial part.
So, I fixed this problem and also remastered all tracks, as they had a very long initial silence (for my taste), and also removed some noise from the original long-play:


Orquestra Mista de Boleros – Vol.2 (1963)

Musicolor/Continental MLP 9090

Orqestra Mista de Boleros presented tonight is unknown to me. All I know is that their discography consists of of two albums equally named of which this one is the volume 2.

The classical boleros are masterfully performed and the complete LP is pleasant, cool and has a nostalgic flair which is a combination not everyone is able to achieve, so I suspect that an otherwise renowned maestro has produced it with his orquestra renamed especially for recording these two albums…

If someone knows more about it all, I will be happy to add his information to this post.

While waiting for the one that knows, enjoy the enchanting sound of:

01. Solamente Una Vez (Agustín Lara)
02. Amor (Gabriel Ruiz / Ricardo Lopes Mendez)
03. Dos Almas (Don Fabian)
04. Que Te Vaya Bien (Federico Baena)
04. Frenesi  (Alberto Dominguez)
05. Quizás, Quizás, Quizás (Osvaldo Farrés)
07. Vereda Tropical (Gonzalo Curiel)
08. Desesperadamente (Gabriel Ruiz)
09. Frio En El Alma (Miguel Angel Valladares)
10. Nosotros (Pedro Junco Jr.)
11. Perfidia (Alberto Dominguez)
12. Angelitos Negros (Manoel Alvarez Maciste / Andres Eloy Blanco)

Joao Maria de Abreu – Enquanto Ela Nao Chega… (1958)

Continental LPP 3040

Contrary to the previous post here is no dilemma who to invite…

A premiere of João Maria de Abreu, the piano player, and his trio.

There is a bit of confusion about the identity of João Maria de Abreu: Memoria Musical lists this album as the first and only one recorded by José Maria de Abreu. Also on melodies composed by João Maria, there is José Maria listed instead.
On the other hand when typing João Maria de Abreu in their artists search-box several albums by piano player João Maria de Abreu are listed, recorded in the period between 1976 and 1983. Is this the same João or not, I do not know. Also I do not know if João Maria de Abreu is the artistic name of José Maria de Abreu, or vice versa.
Or is it all just a typing mistake?

Anyway, don’t let this mystery spoil you the pleasure of a romantic dinner with these suitable compositions adding to the atmosphere and anticipation:

01. Você (João Maria de Abreu)
02. Nunca (Lupicínio Rodrigues)
03. Conselheiro (João Maria de Abreu)
04. Meiguice (K-Ximbinho / Del Loro)
05. Cidinha (João Maria de Abreu)
06. Mocinho Bonito (Billy Blanco)
07. You Are My Destiny (Paul Anka)
08. Moonlight In Vermont (John Blackburn / Karl Suessdorf)
09. There Will Never Be a Another You (Harry Warren / Mack Gordon)
10. Yesterdays (Jerome Kern / Otto Harbach)
11. Melodie D’Amour (Henri Salvador / Marc Lanjean)
12. Cachito (Consuelo Velasquez)

DEDUCTION by Hercule Poirot:
The answer to this question about João and José, ah, c’est vraiment três simple, mon cher Milan: The man writing on Memoria Musical, il est un bon catholique. He goes to church tous les dimanches, and what can be more logical for this man than to write in haste José Maria instead of João Maria.
