  1. Hi Flabbergast. The link for Jerry Butler (FLAC) actually returns the file for Luiz Paixao. I would be most appreciative if you can fix this.

  2. thanks for reporting that! this has been a confusing batch. every since the new system of super-duper-encyption went into place, I seem to be confusing the links more often 😀

  3. This one could be me being blind but I also don't see a link for the Jazz Crusaders album. Sorry for the complaint(s) Flabbergast.

  4. Everything should be working now, I hope

  5. Ola, o link emepetreco do The Jazz Cruzaders e Joao Gilberto estao apontando para o mesmo link do Jerry Butler. Abraço forte.

  6. I find it very reassuring that someone else can also fack-up.

    Everyone should take advantage of the opportunity to grab Paulinho and Joao.

    Very fine.

  7. Part 1)

    Note: This to all of those that think bossa nova is elevator music for the consumption in the US market.

    As to Antônio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes and João Gilberto The 'elevator music BN' kept being listened to in the USA I do hear some of what you are saying. The song Sempre Mangueira sung by Clara Nunes on Clara Nunes 72' (72' was a good year) reminds me of the Nara Leão 'political Bossa Nova with maestro sambista's like Nelson Cavaquino just knocking fire to his cavaquino. The first time I heard Clara Nunes sing 'falo Nelson Cavaquino' I was hooked.

    But remember 'elevator music' is little a harsh. I mean think about it. An elevator contractor because of building codes has to put a speaker in every elevator not only for safety but because some body with an advanced degree says there is a need to play music in the elevator that sooths, relaxes and calms people down. Naturally this type of music would tend to suck. And this being played by only the string section too?! It was made for you NOT to like it. And to think somebody paid good money for studies of elevator music? I remember a time with my hand in tow of either one of my parents on the elevator in the 60's. And I should know. The term 'elevator music' was coined in the US.

    If you listen to João Gilberto and Tom Jobim playing the guitar and piano they are using their instruments in such a way that they sound like percussive instruments. Whether you are talking about their playing or their band mates. I look at the type and style of music they were playing as similar too American jazz. Simple, melodic and yet so complex and new at the time. Just as hard bop was, at the same time in history in the states. I think they were just communicating in their way musically with people and especially with musicians.

    I am a child of the late 50's, 60's and early 70's and in grade school in the winter if it snowed the night before as we got ready for school the next day the entire household would listen to WOWO for the school announcements of school closings if there was to much snow on the roads. And in those days there was no such thing as programing on radio stations. Meaning that the dj's could play whatever they wanted. Not only would they play from time to time Mas Que Nada played by the Sérgio Mendes band – Brasl 66' but because it was such a smash hit in the states they sometimes would play the original by the writer of the song Jorge Ben Jor. Last month I went to see Sergio Mendes. He gave homage to Jobim,Vinicius, João Gilberto, Gilberto Gill, Dorival caymi and a host of other musicians of Brazil that he played with and influenced him. I cannot and will not blame him for trying to get in the market of the all mighty dollar – the US and do what he can to support and raise his family. Thanks to sites like Flabbergasted Vibes I have been privy to music that was only meant for Brazilian consumption. And Sérgio Mendes has quite a few albums he made in Brazil for the Brazilian market before Brasil – 66' that are so hot that to this day they blaze. Elevator music, I think not.

    In 1967 Tom Jobim appeared on the Frank Sinatra show in the US and mesmerized everyone watching the show including my Dad. And I now know that history was being made. Jobim sang and played in the beautiful language and voice of Portuguese. Here again you would think if it's alright with Frank it should be all right with producers in the states. Sadly this was not to be. The powers that be at the record labels thought the Brazilian singers had to sing in English for the US market to get it.
     
    And Vinicius, his music catalog with songs like Chega de Saudade and Tristeza, which is more like an anthem than a song. Black Orpheus, the only other musician/person I can think of in the 30's that was writing plays of this high of caliber is George Gershwin with Porgy and Bess where the stars were black.
     
    And why is more gredit not given to Cartola, Dorival Caymmi, Elizeth Cardoso, Alaíde Costa and Leny Andrade for this wonderful music of bossa nova?  Don't Elizete Cardoso, Cartola, Alaíde Costa and Leny Andrade come from the hill's of Rio also? Also correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Nara Leão a protégé of Vinicius?
     
    Sorry Flabber for taken so long to give some sort of feed back in some time to the music you post. Also please except my humble apology also for writing so much here.

    E Flabber, sempre sempre representam.
     
    PS: That Leny Andrade LP Estamos Aí (1965) is badass.
     

  9. And as My friend Pardal would tell me: Bossa Nova is inbuded with samba.
