Orquestra de Luis Arruda Paes e Zezinho da TV – Convite Ao Baile (1963)

RCA Victor BBL 1211

The collaboration between Maestro Luis Arruda Paes and piston player Zezinho Da TV, is also (as far as I know) the newest album by the famous Maestro.

Three singers: one lady and two gentlemen are also participating:

Jorge Rodrigues (fx. 2)
Décio Cardoso (fx. 5
Marly Shirley (fx. 10)

A quck search for Marly Shirley on Memoria Musical revealed that this one song she is singing on is her complete (known) discography.
The same result I have obtained when searching for Jorge Rodrigues, while, on the other hand, Décio Cardoso has released also a 78 rpm.

Anyway, the participation of any Zezinho is always a good sign and you can rightfully expect high quality music.

01. Cadência do Brasil (Denis Brean / Osvaldo Guilherme)
02. Confidência (Raul Sampaio / Benil Santos) Participação: Jorge Rodrigues
03. Amor e Paz (Tito Madi)

Formandos de 1966 – Estamos Aí! (1966)

Simonetti Gravações LP-100

A various artists type of recording done for Simonetti Gravações a only one of the kind (at least so i looks to me) venture of Maestro Simonetti as record manufacturer. It was recorded, as far as I understood the Portuguese text on the back cover, as an invitation for a Baile de Formatura taking place on the 9-12-1966 at the Rotary Club de São Paulo. The performers are listed alongside each track while the orchestras accompanying them are led by Zézinho da T.V. and Luiz Arruda Paes.

What Walt Disney‘s crazy inventor was inventing at that time, as well as why he is prominently displayed on the front cover at all (where one would expect Zézinho, Luiz Arruda Paes, both of them, or at least a good looking girl), I don’t know, but sooner or later, the answer will hopefully arrive in form of a comment…

While waiting, enjoy these tracks:

01. Arrastão (Edu Lobo / Vinicius de Moraes) – Carlos Piper
02. Sevilha Mambo (Juan Amadeu) – Arley e Sua Orquestra Melódica
03. Au Privave (Charlie Parker) – Biriba Boys

OBSERVATION by Bossanov: Some days ago at Toque the same LP of Simonetti was published with another cover (good looking girl!!!)

LAMENT by Milan Filipović; Looks like Augusto TM is publishing the good looking girls, while I have Disney’s figures on the front covers. 
Too bad! Unfortunately, no chance to ever get the “18+” warning while entering Parallel Realities.
I am strongly considering the opening of another site for mature audience with a prominent ADULTS ONLY – AUSWEIS BITTE! warning on the front page.
