O Amor, O Sorriso E A Flor - João Gilberto

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.

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'. Our Price: £9.95

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

Bossa Nova Guitar
Released 17/05/10. João Gilberto invented the clean, modernist style that defines Bossa Nova; using the guitar as a percussive as well as a harmonic instrument. He and his contemporaries of the Bossa generation; Baden Powell, Luiz Bonfá and Laurindo Almeida variously combined samba, choro and Afro-Bahian ritual music with Bach, bebop, swing to forge the style that seduced the world and changed the course of musical history. All of these Brazilian guitar masters point to the inspiration of Anibal Augusto Sardinha, Garôto, who, in blending traditional Brazilian music with jazz harmonies, anticipated by years the Bossa Nova conception. Our Price: £9.95
