What good is there in collecting something and not share it with others with the same interest as yours?

The objective of this blog is to share songs not commercially available anymore, for music is the language of the soul and it must not be forgotten.

Antologia Da Seresta (1979)

One of the most popular and commercially successful samba interpreters in the '60s and '70s, Jair Rodrigues had his first radio experience in 1958 on a novice show in his hometown. Moving to São Paulo, he won a contest in another novice show on Rádio Cultura. Becoming a crooner in several nightclubs, he recorded for the first time in 1962 ("Marechal da Vitória"). His first LP came in 1963, O Samba Como Ele É. In 1964, he had his first hit with "Deixa Isso Pra Lá", which helped solidify his "malandro" (street smart) style. Rodrigues replaced Baden Powell in 1965 on a show with Elis Regina at the Teatro Paramount (the first place where the bossa nova was presented in São Paulo), which opened the way for the live recording with her of three anthological LPs (the Dois Na Bossa series). The commercial success of the recordings brought them an invitation to host the historical TV Record show O Fino da Bossa, in 1965. Rodrigues won the TV Record's II FMPB (Festival of Brazilian Popular Music) in the next year with "Disparada" (Geraldo Vandré/Teo de Barros), one of the most important songs of his repertory; the first place in that festival was shared with Chico Buarque's "A Banda". That same year, he recorded one of his biggest hits, "Tristeza" (Niltinho/Haroldo Lobo). In 1967, he performed in Portugal, Argentina, Angola, Uruguay, and Brazil, always with Elis Regina and the Zimbo Trio. He had other hits with "Triste Madrugada" (Jorge Costa), "Casa de Bamba" (Martinho da Vila), "Tengo-Tengo" (Zuzuca), and "Vai, Meu Samba." Rodrigues performed in several international festivals, like the MIDEM (in Cannes, France), Montreux, and San Remo. He continues to perform and had recorded 28 albums through 2000

História De Um Bandolim (1977)

Luperce Miranda, and later, Jacob do Bandolim, were responsible for the presence of the mandolin in the Brazilian popular music scene. Before them, the mandolin was used sporadically and always as accompaniment. The crescent soloist activity of these renowned musicians imposed the instrument in a broader circle. Luperce Miranda played and recorded with the who's who of Brazilian popular music. Among his recordings, both as a soloist and accompanist, he left around 900 registers. He wrote around 500 compositions in several genres, such as choro, valse, and frevo. He was the first to be awarded by the Image and Sound Museum of Rio with the title Bacharel da Música Popular Brasileira (1970). At the same time, he was a noted professor, having founded the Academia de Música Luperce Miranda. A superb musician of irreproachable technique, he forged his style in the Neapolitan school, leaving to do Bandolim the honor of the development of a Brazilian school of the instrument.
He began to play the mandolin at eight, writing his first composition, a frevo, at 15. In the following year, he organized the Jazz Leão do Norte, a nine-piece orchestra in which he played the piano. In spite of what he declared (and what was widely rumored), he never took part in the Turunas da Mauricéia group. The group did record his tunes in their first contract with Odeon (1927), though they did all with Augusto Calheiros (the Patativa do Norte): the canção "Belezas do Sertão," the samba "O Pequeno Tururu," and the embolada "Pinião," which was the hit of the Carnaval of 1928. In 1927 he formed the group Voz do Sertão, who included a violonista (acoustic guitar player), Meira, who would later become nationally famous. He moved to Rio at age 24, in 1928, invited by João Pernambuco and Pixinguinha and bringing the Voz do Sertão. They recorded several of his songs soon after their arrival in Parlophon. In 1929, he formed the Regional Luperce Miranda, who were hired by Rádio Clube do Brasil. Together with Almirante, he recorded with the Bando de Tangarás. Almirante recorded his "Vaca Maiada", written with Manuel Lino. He accompanied the greatest stars of his time, like Carmen Miranda (he wrote the introduction to "No Tabuleiro da Baiana"), Francisco Alves, Mário Reis, Noel Rosa (in the first recording of "Com que Roupa?"), and others. In 1931, he performed in Argentina, including radio performances (Radio El Mundo) with Carmen Miranda, Francisco Alves, Mário Reis, Tute, Célia Zenatti, and Nestor Figueiredo. In 1936, he moved to Rádio Mayrink Veiga, and in 1945 to Rádio Nacional, both in Rio. In 1946 he moved to the Northeast, returning to Rádio Nacional in 1955 and staying until his retirement in 1973. In 1950, he toured the Federal Republic of Germany. In 1994, the label specializing in historical research, Marcus Pereira, released the CD História de um Bandolim, and in the following year, the contemporary virtuoso Pedro Amorim released another CD dedicated to him through Saci, Pedro Amorim Toca Luperce Miranda.

Jamelão (1974)

Brazilian music giant Jamelão looms large in the evolution and continued relevance of samba. The foremost interpreter of dor-de-cotovelo, a romantic, profoundly melodramatic style exploring the anguish of the human experience, he also composed standards including "Deixa Amanhecer", "Um Dia Hás de Pagar", and "Ela Me Convidou", and for five decades remained a fixture of Rio de Janeiro's annual Carnival Parade. Born José Bispo Clementino dos Santos in Rio's São Cristóvão district on May 12, 1913, he shined shoes as a child, later toiling as a newspaper delivery boy and textile factory worker -- only during the early '30s did he pursue a career as a singer, adopting the cavaquinho (a small, four-stringed guitar central to samba tradition) and performing in the dancehalls of north Rio. With his booming, richly expressive voice he quickly emerged as a crowd favorite, earning his famous alias from a nightclub announcer who, unsure of the singer's name, introduced him as "Jamelão" (i.e. a sweet-tasting fruit with a dark skin). The name stuck, and in 1947 Jamelão rose to national prominence when he claimed first prize in a Rio amateur competition. Two years later, he was appointed the primary singer of the city's premier samba school, Mangueira, and in 1952 he toured France as the official crooner in front of Brazil's Tabajara orchestra. That same year, Jamelão made his first appearance on Mangueira's Carnival Parade float, an honor he reprised each year for more than half-a-century, with his signature white suit, panama hat, and walking stick, he would become one of the most recognizable exponents of the festival experience.
Jamelão's recording career spanned nearly two-dozen LPs and close to 70 years, during which time he scored a series of samba classics including "Mora No Assunto", "Matriz ou Filial", "Exaltação à Mangueira", "Seu Deputado", and "Fechei a Porta". Critics frequently cite his recordings with Severino Araújo's Orquestra Tabajara as the apex of his studio career as well as a pivotal turning point in the maturation of the modern samba sound. A perennial favorite of composers including Cartola, Zé Keti, Billy Blanco, and Ary Barroso, Jamelão nevertheless remains most closely aligned with southern writer Lupicinio Rodrigues, recording definitive renditions of sambas-canção like "Ela Disse-me Assim", "Torre de Babel", "Esses Moços", and "Quem Há de Dizer". Throughout his life, Jamelão gravitated to songs of lost love, betrayal and desperation, dubbing his operatic approach "romantic samba". Offstage, he was a famously combative man, notorious for walking out of press interviews and openly scornful of record executives, blaming them for discriminating against black musicians. A stroke forced Jamelão to relinquish his Estação Primera de Mangueira duties in 2005, and during the final years of his life he also suffered from diabetes and hypertension. Jamelão died June 14, 2008 at the age of 95 -- following his death, Rio's governor Sergio Cabral declared three days of mourning, and his funeral took place at the city's famed Sambódromo da Marquês de Sapucaí, where samba schools including Mangueira compete each year during Carnival.

Os Velhinhos Transviados Fabulosos (1963)

Conversa De Botequim (1970)

Moreira da Silva, the son of a trombonist of the band of the military police, sang as an amateur in serestas at a very young age. In 1931, he recorded for the first time ("Ererê" and "Rei Da Umbanda," both pontos de macumba by Amor for Odeon). He recorded another album for Odeon and moved to Columbia, where he recorded two hits for the Carnival of 1933: "Arrasta A Sandália" (Aurélio Gomes/Baiaco) and "É Batucada" (Caninha/Visconde de Bicuíba). The latter was the winner of the first official contest of Carnival music of Rio de Janeiro in the same year. Invited by Duque, Moreira da Silva went to work in the Cassino Atlântico. "Implorar Só A Deus" (Kid Pepe/Germano Augusto/J.S. Gaspar) was another hit in 1935, establishing his reputation as an inspired interpreter. In the next year, he began to appear on Programa Casé at Rádio Philips, and in 1937 he was hired by César Ladeira for Rádio Mayrink Veiga. In the same year, his interpretation of "Quatro Linhas" (Tancredo Silva) became a milestone, being the first time that he inserted slang and humorous commentaries between musical phrases (the break, or breque). This style, which he took to the ultimate point, became his trademark -- some of his breaks reached the mark of one minute or more, sometimes with dialogue. In the same year, "Jogo Proibido" (Tancredo Silva/Davi Silva/Ribeiro Cunha) continued in the same line, also with enormous success. In 1939, he toured Portugal (Porto and Lisbon), where he worked on the film A Varanda Dos Rouxinóis. "Amigo Urso" (Henrique Gonçalves), recorded for RCA Victor in the same year, became one of his greatest hits. After several other hits, he was hired by Rádio Tupi in 1950. In 1958, invited by Aluísio de Oliveira, he recorded the LP O Último Malandro, followed by several others. Miguel Gustavo wrote sambas-de-breque especially for him, describing adventures where Kid Morengueira (another of his nicknames) was the hero. The biggest hit of these was "O Rei do Gatilho" (1962). In 1979, invited by Chico Buarque, he performed on the Ópeara Do Malandro LP. He toured Brazil in 1980, in the Projeto Pixinguinha. The samba school Unidos de Manguinhos paid tribute to him, parading to the samba enredo "Moreira Da Silva, 90 Anos De Um Malandro." In 1995, he performed a series of shows with success in the Projeto Seis e Meia; his 94 years of age were commemorated with shows at the Ritmo nightclub, with the presence of several artists. In the same year, the book Moreira da Silva, O Último Dos Malandros (Alexandre Augusto Teixeira Gonçalves, Editora Record) was released. Moreira da Silva continued to perform in shows until his death in 2000.

Uma Noite De Seresta Vol. II (1967)

Carlos José recorded more than 25 albums from 1957 to 1975. Among his biggest hits, "Oferta" (his first recorded composition, 1958), "Esmeralda" (Fernando Barreto/Filadelfo Nunes, 1960), "Lembrança" (1962), "Queria" (Carlos Paraná, 1964), and "Oração da Mãe Menininha" (Dorival Caymmi, 1973) deserve mention. At 11, he learned to play the violão (Brazilian acoustic guitar) with his mother. At 13, he received first place in the famous novice radio contest Papel Carbono. In 1957, while studying at law school, he had a big break on Flávio Cavalcânti's show on TV Rio. He soon recorded his first single (through Polydor), with "Foi a Noite" (Tom Jobim/Newton Mendonça) and "Ouça" (Maysa). He was appointed Revelation of the Year by critics of Rio de Janeiro. Leaving law school, he began to perform both nationally and internationally (through Argentina and Uruguay). In 1997, José re-recorded his biggest hits in Polygram's 20 Super Sucessos de Carlos José.

Capricho (1963)

Osny Silva (born Osny Rufino Da Silva Gomes 21/10/1919-20/07/1995) achieved enormous success with his first recording in 1943, "Alza Manolita (As Cartas Não Mentem Jamais)",  surpassing Francisco Alves and Vicente Celestino, who would record the same song afterward.  In 1951, Osny Silva launched the famous and broadly popular anthem of the soccer team Corinthians, "Campeão dos Campeões" (written by Lauro D'Ávila), a tribute to the team he was crazy about in the year it was champion.  Still popular in 1964, he was a top-seller with hits like "Jura-me", "Funeral Dum Rei Nagô", "Banzo", "Violino Cigano", "Cavaleiro Errante", "Olhos Negros", "Navio Negreiro", "O Trovador de Toledo" and several others.
Osny Silva started at the Rádio Educadora Paulista in 1939, signing with Rádio Tupi in 1940. In 1943, by suggestion of the conductor Spártaco Rossi, he recorded "Alza Manolita (As Cartas Não Mentem Jamais)", a Leo Daniderff valse that had been successfully recorded by Eduardo das Neves in the 1910s.  In his interpretation, the recording sold an amazing 80,000 copies, much more than the re-recordings by Francisco Alves (also in 1943) and by Vicente Celestino (three years later, with a version done by himself). Osny Silva recorded other albums through 1945 without the same success. In 1951, he was awarded as the Best Singer of International Popular Music, and encouraged by the success he recorded successfully in 1953 "Bandolins ao Luar" and "Violino Cigano", followed by the hits "Risque", "João Valentão", and others.  In that year, he was awarded with the Roquette-Pinto prize as the Best Singer, touring throughout Brazil, Chile, and Argentina, countries in which he also recorded. His album with "Funeral Dum Rei Nagô" and "Barzô" was considered one of the best of 1954.

1963 was full of new recordings, including "Natal Da Minha Terra" and "Nova Flor", both by Palmeira and Mário Zan.  Later in the year he was awarded with the Chico Viola, for the recording of "Romance".  In 1964 he recorded the bolero "Cigana" (Túlio Piva).  In the same year, he recorded one of the last 78 rpm records released by Continental, with the songs "Valsa Dos Namorados" (Silvino Neto) and "Eu Pago Esta Noite (Stasera Pago Io), by Domenico Modugno with version by Waldyr Santos.  By this time he started working as a free lancer for the radios and TV stations and released the LP "O Romântico", which had, among others, "Nova Flor" (Palmeira/Mário Zan); "Cigana" (Túlio Piva) and "Io Che Amo Solo Te" (Sergio Endrigo).
In 1965 he went to Portugal and performed at Cassino Estoril.  He recorded the album "Baile Da Saudade", whose title song, by Palmeira and Zairo Marinoza, became his greatest hit.  He started, then, to promote the "Baile da Saudade", supported by the "Clube da Saudade", and specialized in singing serenades.  In 1966 he was hired by TV Globo where he hosted the program "Baile da Saudade".  In 1968 he started producing his own program that moved to Radio Gazeta.  He created the "Orquestra da Saudade" with professional dancers to promote serenades through Brazil.
During the 1970's he went busy recording several albums like others from the series "Uma Voz E Um Violão Em Serenata", with Dilermando Reis, "Tempo De Seresta" with the Conjunto Época de Ouro, "Francisco Petrônio Homenageia Francisco Alves", "Tributo A Carinhoso", went to RCA Victor and then returned to Continental.
In 1995, he recorded by RGE the CD "Trinta Anos De Saudade"; in 1997, released the CD "Lembranças", also by RGE and in 2000 the LP "Nostalgia Della Terra Nostra". For almost 40 years, he directed the program "Baile da Saudade", lately at Rede Vida.

Sinto Que Te Amo (1966)

Self-taught singer Altemar Dutra enjoyed great success in Brazil, Latin America, and the U.S. as an interpreter of Latin romantic songs in several genres. He has recorded several albums, some of which were released internationally. He moved to Colatina, Espírito Santo, with his family, where he taught himself to play the violão (acoustic guitar). His first public performance was at Rádio Difusora, winning a novice contest. With his talent confirmed in several similar successes, at age 17 he moved to Rio de Janeiro and was hired by Boite Baccarat and famous nightclub O Cangaceiro. Dutra's first recording was a single with "Saudade Que Vem" (Oldemar Magalhães/Célio Ferreira) and "Somente Uma Vez" (Luiz Mergulhão/Roberto Moreira) in the early '60s. He consolidated his audience in Rádio Mundial's show Boleros Dentro Da Noite and was hired by Odeon. His first national hit came with "Tudo De Mim" (Evaldo Gouveia/Jair Amorim). Other hits of the famous duo's compositions were "Sentimental Demais," "Somos Iguais," "O Trovador," and "Que Queres Tu De Mim?" In Brazil, he released 24 LPs. He also recorded in Spanish (selling up to 500,000 copies of his albums in that idiom), including an album shared with Lucho Gatica (El Bolero Se Canta Así), and performed several times in other Latin American countries. Highly regarded by the Latino community in the U.S., he became one of the most popular foreign singers. He was actually performing in a New York nightclub (La Tranquera) when he died.

Calendário Musical Renner (1961)

Calendário Musical Renner
Once in a while, some company would, a few decades ago, produce an album to distribute among their customers and special clients.  Those albums were, most of the times, of exclusive material or rare performances.  This is one of those cases.  The company A. J. Renner S/A., Indústria do Vestuário hired the composer Miguel Gustavo to produce this album and though it was made especially for Renner, here are performances of great singers of the time that, as far as I know, the songs don't appear on any of their carrer albums.  This is really a piece for collectors.  Enjoy!

Baldauf Retorna (1962)

The Conjunto Melódico Norberto Baldauf, originally called Conjunto Norberto Baldauf, is a band which plays mainly instrumental music - Brazilian and from other countries.  For many years it was dedicated to radio shows, performing live, and on TV as well.  It also was very requested for the parties in the Estates of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina.  It used the voice of Edgar Pozzer, the group's crooner.
In 2006 the group completed 53 years of activities, still very popular in Rio Grande do Sul and with some of its original founders, like the pianist Norberto Baldauf and the guitar player Raul Lima.  They performed as a quintet for the first time at the ball at the UFRGS' Faculdade de Arquitetura on May, 17th, 1953 and it was progressively enlarged to an octet during the following years.
During the 1950's among the band's formation included the musicians Norberto Baldauf (piano), Raul Lima (guitar), Victor Canella (accordion), Léo Velloso (bass and management), Porto Rico (drums), Wilson Baraldo (drums), Fausto Touguinha (percussion), Luiz Octávio (crooner) and Renê Martins (crooner).
During the 1960's the formation was Edgar Pozzer (crooner), Léo Belloni (drums), Hélio Santos (vibraphone) and Heitor Barbosa and also the short appearance of Elis Regina for only three performances.
The band animated thousands of events for nearly six decades, toured through Brazil and neighbouring countries, performed at Rádio Gaúcha and Rádio Farroupilha, was one of the pioneers at TV Piratini and recorded 15 albums for the lables Odeon, Philips and Continental.
