Som Imaginario - Som Imaginario

Som Imaginario
Som Imaginario! In the ferment of Brasilian music, which was taking place in the post Bossa Nova period and when the most unlikely musical figures had suddenly been thrust onto a world stage, many quite amazing musical explosions came to the surface as Tropicalia took hold, and the unlikely sounds of funk, prog, psychedelic rock and lord knows what else were filtered through the unique sensibility of Brasil. Som Imaginario! Musical prodigy Wagner Tiso and the Wanderley brothers played in many combos with their neighbour Milton Nacimento, and when the latter had his major label international breakthrough he employed his old friends to back him on his debut, dubbing them SOM IMAGINARIO after a phrase in a review of a triumphant concert they did together. Luiz Alves and Robertinho Silva, Tavito, Ze Rodrix, Laudir de Oliveira and Frederico were all members of SON IMAGINARIO, along with Milton Nascimento and other star guests on uncredited vocals on one of the most amazing albums ever to come out of Brasil. Bossa, Tropicalia and Samba meet Italian prog and Brit psych; western pop meets eastern soundtracks with DJ friendly beats breaking through all over the shop. An album that was acclaimed on its release by a gobsmacked Herbie Hancock, it has to be heard to be believed!!

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.

Brasilia - Sinfonia da Alvorada
In 1958, Juscelino Kubitschek, president of Brazil, asked Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes to compose a symphonic suite to be used at the opening ceremony of Brasilia, a city, designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer, that was being built in the state of Goias in the middle of the country and which would be inaugurated as the nation's new capital in April 1960. Niemeyer's vision was one of history's boldest, most dramatic architectural statements that for Brazil was meant to represent a new vision for the future. Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moreas were two of the principle artchitects of bossa nova. The pair famously co-wrote The Girl From Ipanema and Jobim produced Joao Gilberto's original trilogy of albums that would be the stylistic blueprint for bossa.For the Sinfonia Alvorada, Tom Jobim is conducting the orchestra with the participation of Radames Gnattali (piano), Vinicius de Our edition features the original Oscar Niemeyer artwork. Sinfonia da Alvorada is accompanied by another major Braziilian orchestral work, The Forest of The Amazon, by Heitor Villa-Lobos. Conducted by the composer in his last year, 1959, with the great Brazilian soprano Bidu Sayão, the piece displays the whole range of Villa-Lobos's style, brilliantly evoking the sounds and colours of the jungle with musical.
