Brasil

5-23-17

A while back, I found a CD on Philips Brasil, representing “Brasil” – though it likely has more to do with what was on offer in 1984, at the advent of the compact disc.  So, maybe not your best selection, but a selection none-the-less…

Brasil (Philips Brasil 822842.2)

  1. NEY MATOGROSSO – Bambo de bambau
  2. ERASMO CARLOS – Close
  3. KLEITON & KLEDIR – Viva
  4. ELBA RAMALHO – Banho de cheiro
  5. CAETANO VELOSO – Eclipseoculta
  6. GAL COSTA – Rumba Louca
  7. ALCEU VALENCA – Anunciacao
  8. MARINA – Fulgas
  9. EMILIO SANTIAGO – Nego John
  10. JOAO BOSCO – Nacao
  11. CHICO BUARQUE – Morena de Angola
  12. TOQUINHO – Aquarela
  13. ELIS REGINA – Nada sera como antes

Total time: 57:55

Like I said previously, newer stuff Mostly from 1983 – so while the guys I actually like (such as Hermeto Pascoal) are likely described as M.P.B. – with this disc, I can hip myself to 1984 Brasil, as such.

Once Upon A Time – Jazz – Bossa Nova

Happy birthday John Lodge (Moody Blues) (1945) and Carlos Santana (1947).

A few years ago, I bought some really inexpensive CD’s from Japan, called “Once Upon A Time”, the one we will look at today is “Jazz – Bossa Nova”

  1. STAN GETZ / JOAO GILBERTO –The Girl From Ipanema
  2. ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM – Wave
  3. ASTRUD GILBERTO – Agua De Beber
  4. WALTER WANDERLEY – Summer Samba
  5. ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM – Desafinado
  6. ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM – Samba De Uma Nota So
  7. ASTRUD GILBERTO – Tristeza
  8. STAN GETZ / JOAO GILBERTO – So Danco Samba
  9. MARCOS VALLE – The Answer
  10. ASTRUD GILBERTO – Meditation

This really boils it down, doesn’t it?  And definitely some non-hit material here, too.
