Modernism And Bossa Nova - Vinicius de Moraes

Modernism And Bossa Nova
•    Vinicius de Moraes, Rio de Janeiro born poet and diplomat (worked for the Brazilian Foreign Ministry in North America, France and Uruguay). A truly singular figure in his nation's culture.

•    In 1954 he wrote the play Orfeu da Conceição , which was soon adapted by French director Marcel Camus into the film, Black Orpheus, a controversial, but enormously popular movie which impressed early 1960s audiences with its beautiful soundtrack and panoramic technicolor views of Rio de Janeiro.

Throughout the sixties, Vinicius is at the centre of Bohemian Rio, collaborating with Carlos Lyra, Nara

The Brazilian Scene

          • The centrepiece of The Brazilian Scene is Ze Maria's much sought-after LP,  Todo Azul. The organist is a darker version of Walter Wanderley with an eerie, reverberated sound. The set is at least a stylish mix of jazz samba and bossa standards from the songbooks of Tom Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes and Carlos Lyra, but the mystique surrounding the album must surely be attributed to the presence of seventeen-year-old Jorge Ben

Caetano Veloso affirmed that "Jorge Ben was not only the first great black composer since bossa nova, but more importantly, he was also the first to make his blackness a stylistic determinant." Associated with both bossa nova and Tropicalia, and the first man to play sambas on an electric guitar, on Todo Azul Jorge Ben contributes his first professional recordings; impressive versions of Por Causa de Você Menina and his signature tune, the propulsive Mas Que Nada, his first chart-topper in Brazil, and a monster hit for Sergio Mendes, a song that has been recorded no less than two hundred times.

Brazilian Scene also includes early recordings by another prominent Tropicalist, Gilberto Gil, songs from a fascinating 4 track EP originally released on JS records of Bahia. Gil defies easy classification. Over a long career, he has remained faithful to the musical diversity that was central to the creative principles of Tropicalia, that would be labeled 'cultural cannibalism'; samba, frevo, Jovem Guarda, choro, bolero, Anglo-American pop and rock an d avant-garde art music.

Some other key features of this edition are the delicious performances of One Note Samba and Consolacao by Tom Jobim and Baden Powell with Herbie Mann, Radames Gnattali's exquisite Sonatina for Flute and Guitar, performed by Laurindo Almeida and Martin Ruderman.

Heitor Villa-Lobos was a prophet of eclecticism and world music and ballet suite Uirapuru depicts the sounds of the Amazon forest. Complex, colourful and full of mystery

Finally, The Little Train of the Brazilian Countryman (O trenzinho do caipira) is the subtitle for the Toccata movement that concludes an orchestral suite written by Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos in 1930, titled Bachianas brasileiras No. 2. The subtitle refers to the local trains in the small communities of the Brazilian interior, the noises of which are imitated in the composition.
