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)
10. Dezoito Por Vinte E Quatro (18 X 24) (Altamiro Carrilho / 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.

Orquestra Copacabana – Nos Bailes da Minha Juventude (1961)

Copacabana CLP 11178

Orquestra Copacabana, presented tonight for the first time on Parallel Realities, has recorded lots of 78 rpm recordings from 1931-1961 but only two albums.   

Nos Bailes da Minha Juventude, released in 1961, may best be understood by reading on the back cover an inspired text about the artistic scene at that moment as well as about the musicians and compositions performed, written by the exceptional artist taking part in the recording of this LP as producer and music selector: Lamartine Babo.
