Clovis Pereira - Velhos Sucessos em Bossa Nova

Mocambo LP 40205

Another, to me previously unknown maestro, Maestro Clóvis Pereira, about whom I could not find any relevant reference at the usual suspects.
Fortunately, on the back cover there is breaking news from Washington, quite informative and well written by Washington França

Of course, although the music performed is poetically described, I suggest to make your own opinion about these tracks, rather then obeying to the guidelines from Washington:

01. Não Me Diga Adeus (Paquito / Luiz Soberano)
02. Fim de Semana em Paquetá (João de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
03. Madalena (Ary Barroso / Ayrton Amorim)
04. Morena Boca de Ouro (Ary Barroso)
05. No Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso)
06. Helena, Helena (Antônio Almeida / Constantino Silva)
07. Gosto Que Me Enrosco (J.B. Silva)
08. Fita Amarela (Noel Rosa)
09. O Orvalho Vem Caindo (Noel Rosa / Kid Pepe)
10. Aos Pés da Cruz (Marino Pinto / Zé Gonçalves)
11. Nêga (Waldemar Gomes / Afonso Teixeira)
12. Amélia (Ataulfo Alves / Mario Lago)

This you can do only after accepting the licence agreement which is not included in the package:

Orquestra sob a Direcao de Alexandre Gnattali - 1 Pistao, 1 Trombone E...

CBS 37306

As not to make a mystery about it, I will tell you right now who the pistão and trombone players are:
Pistão is played by Barreto, while Waldemar Moura plays trombone.

No surprise is, as it is clearly stated in the title of this post, that he direction is by Maestro Alexandre Gnattali, who was presented for the first time on Parallel Realities last night.

The compositions are international standards, lined up as follows:

01. Ebb.Tide (R. Maxwell / Carl Sigman)
02. When I fall in Love (Heyman / Victor Young)
03. Night and Day (Cole Porter)
04. Joie de vivre (Bert Gardner)
05. Over The Rainbow (Arthur Harburg / Harold Arlen)
06. Three Coins in The Fountain (Cahn / Styne)
07. Danke shoen (Bert Kampfert / Roy Heine)
08. An Affair to remember (H. Warren / H.Adamson / L. McCarey / I Chandler)
09. All The Way (Sammy Cahn / James Van Heusen)
10. Warm (S. Jacobsen / Krondes)
11. Too young (S. Dee / S. Lippman)
12. Stella by Starlight (Washington / V. Young)
