The Extraordinary Girl - Carmen Miranda

The Extraordinary Girl
All genres of Brazilian music such as Bossa Nova, Tropicalia, Latin Jazz, stem from Carmen Miranda. This edition is the unadulterated Carmen Miranda, concentrating on her triumphant Brazilian years, collecting together the charming, beautifully crafted vintage sambas, chorus and marches that established her fantastic reputation and made her a national hero. Her worldwide credibility and influence remain enormous. This is evidenced by the film documentary 'Bananas is my business', which was released this year on DVD, and by Ruy Castro’s best selling new biography 'Carmen'.

O Amor, O Sorriso E A Flor
Amor, o sorriso è a flor (Love, a Smile, and a Flower) is the second in the trilogy of formative bossa nova albums released by João Gilberto between 1959 and 1961 (Chega de saudade ACMEM 179CD being the first).

These albums are quite literally the aesthetic and musical blueprints for a genre that would exert an irresistible worldwide influence on popular music. Our edition features the original (long out of print) classic album in its entirety and original packaging. It includes Joao's historic, first performances of such masterpieces as Samba de uma nota só (One Note Samba), Meditação (Meditation), O pato, Corcovado, Discussão and Outra vez (One More Time)

The album is augmented by rare recordings of some of the famous songs of both O Amor, o sorriso è a flor Chega de Saudade by such important contemporaries as Sergio Mendes, Walter Wanderley, Sylvia Telles, Carlos Lyra, Alaide Costa, Agostinho Dos Santos, Isaura Garcia, Os Cariocas and Luiz Eca

In 1962 Gilberto moved to the United States where he and Stan Getz recorded the million-selling Getz / Gilberto for Creed Taylor¹s Verve; an LP which featured a song (sung by João's then wife Astrud) that was to become one of the most popular of the twentieth century, the Jobim-Vinícius composition, La Garota de Ipanema (The Girl from Ipanema).

The reclusive João Gilberto is the "Great Master" of bossa nova; His art both enigmatic and timeless. He has worked with the Tropicalistas, Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso and influenced generations of arrangers, musicians and singers

Os Afro-Sambas / A Vontade
Vinicius de Moraes was the principal lyricist of Bossa Nova, (Girl from Ipanema, Chega de Saudade and Insensatez are amongst the famous international hit songs he wrote with Tom Jobim), and Os Afro-Sambas is his response to the commercialisation of the movement by the mid-sixties. Co-written with the brilliant Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell and eventually released in 1966, these eight songs combine Powell'smelodic gifts with Bahian folk traditions and Gregorian chant. With the joyous vocalisations of Quarteto Em Cy, the atmosphere is at once haunting and spontaneous. The music hasn’t even begun to date. Recorded at a time when musicians around the world were looking to break down barriers - between classical and pop, East and West - but the Afro-sambas appear to recognise no such barriers in the first place. Os Afro-Sambas is an absolute stunner. One of the most exquisite pieces of Brazilian music ever recorded, it is combined on this edition with the intimate, irresistible, A Vontade, Baden'smost successful solo LP of the period and one of his finest achievements.

Chega De Saudade
Released on 18/01/10. In the summer of 1958, a singer-guitarist from Bahia in the north of Brazil called João Gilberto created a musical revolution when he joined with Bossa Novas seminal songwriting team, the gifted composer Antônio Carlos Jobim, and the poet and former diplomat, Vinicius de Moraes, to record the songs that would launch this cool, futuristic new music for a confident new era. Bossa nova - The New Way - was influenced by modern classical music (Villa-Lobos, Debussy), jazz and samba-canção. Gilberto brought an unprecedented guitar style and a hushed, understated form of vocal expression that defined the movement and changed the course of music history. In 1959 João Gilberto released Chega de saudade, the first bossa nova LP record and Brazilian music never looked back. Our edition features the original (long out of print) classic album in its entirety, supplemented by the impossibly rare EP of songs from the film Black Orpheus and recordings of some of the famous songs of Chega de saudade by contemporaries such as Elizete Cardoso, Os Cariocas, Alaide Costa, Norma Bengell and Bola Sete. .João Gilberto Chega De Saudade - Chega de saudade (No More Blues) / Lobo bobo (Foolish Wolf) / Brigas nunca mais (Fights, Never More) / Hô-bá-lá-lá / Saudade fez um samba (Saudade made a Samba) / Maria ninguém (Maria Nobody) / Desafinado (Off-Key) / Rosa morena (Brunette Rose) / Morena boca de ouro (Brunette with a Mouth of Gold) / Bim bom / Aos pés da cruz (At the Foot of the Cross) / É luxo só (It's Just a Luxury) Our Price: £9.95

The Man They Couldn't Silence
Paul Robeson: great voice, grannies favourite, acclaimed Shakespearean actor, perhaps the most beloved man in Wales? Or perhaps a subversive, dangerous, maybe commie-agitator plotting sedition against the United States Government and everything they held dear? In fact he was both yet neither! One of the voices of the century, Robeson from youth spoke out against racism and social injustice, to the extent he became politically suspect and pretty much unemployable in the US. Coming to Britain he not only starred in one of the earliest Hammer Films (produced by his friend, the Spanish left/liberal film maker Enrique Carreras, whose son was to make Hammer world famous) but also was one of the original talkie stars of Ealing studios. Back then, a rather leftist organisation whose major ideological guiding light was Pen Tennyson, whose tragic early death rocked the UK film industry. Here he made films much to his taste, glorifying working class communities, inevitably set in Wales, the country where Robeson could do no wrong. So two iconic British studios were pretty much launched by the man! So here is a taste of the voice of the 20th century, the man they couldn't silence: Paul Roobeson! Beautiful. This is a must for all lovers of a great voice and for those concerned with social justice. Our Price: £9.95
