João Gilberto - João Gilberto

João Gilberto
The third album in João Gilberto’s trilogy of blueprints for bossa nova, following his celebrated 1959 debut, Chega de Saudade (ACMEM179CD) and its sequel, O Amor, o Sorriso e a Flor (Love, a Smile and a Flower) (ACMEM201CD) which followed a year later.

Produced by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Walter Wanderley, "João Gilberto” combines a splendid bossa nova repertoire of Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes and Carlos Lyra originals such as Insensatez (How Insensitive), Este seu olhar (That Look You Wear) and Voce e eu (You and Me) with Gilberto's interpretations of songs from Brazil's musical past; Saudade de Bahia (Longing for Bahia) and O Samba da minha terra (Samba of My Land) by Dorival Caymmi, and Geraldo Pereira's Bolinha de Papel (Little Paper Ball).

The performances of these enchanting songs display the full range of João Gilberto’s singular style; the intimate voice and his innovative, linear approach to the guitar that revolutionized Brazilian music and the international pop scene. Our edition comprises the original (long out of print) "João Gilberto” album supplemented by performances of songs from the trilogy by such important and diverse con-temporaries as Carlos Lyra, Walter Wanderley, Leny Andrade, Oscar Castro Neves, Agostingo dos Santos, Sylvia Telles, Lucio Alves, Maysa and Jon Hendricks.

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

The Fabulous
Beautiful collection of vintage recordings by the greatest guitarist the world has ever known. Comprising the Maestro¹s own transcriptions of Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces and of pieces solicited from composers of the day such as the popular Brazilian composer Heitor Villa- Lobos In Tokyo, New York, Paris, London, Madrid, Segovia's cool, highly refined sound is regarded today as the definitive 'chill-out' music and we will look to reach that audience through the jazz and arts media. Segovia, the Unchallenged Master Of the Spanish Guitar influenced George Harrison, Django Reinhardt, Robert Fripp, Julian Bream and every serious classical guitarist. Particularly in Japan and America he toured extensively and sold a lot of records. Our Price: £9.95

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
