Moacir Santos - Saudade (1974)

This is the second Moacir Santos LP at Loronix. There is nothing to say about a legend who had influence a whole generation of musicians such like Paulo Moura, Oscar Castro-Neves, Baden Powell, Maurício Einhorn, Geraldo Vespar, Bola Sete, Sérgio Mendes, Dom Um Romão, João Donato, Roberto Menescal, Carlos Lyra, Dori Caymmi, Airto Moreira, and Flora Purim, among others.

Moacir Santos, when interviewed by All About Jazz, gave the perfect definition of its own:

"Any time we talk, my wife says, 'you are thinking about music again.' I am always thinking about music."

Perhaps all Moacir discography is good. We have a genius here.

Muuuuuito obrigada, zecalouro! It's so hard to find Moacir's older LPs in the US - and I'm a big fan.

All the best,

Thanks a lot for this nice record. I serched around for the rec. co. & without any luck. What is the record label?
Another question does calouro also means papagaio

Saudade was recorded for Blue Note label.

In Brazil, we call louro a guy who has a yellow hair, such like zecalouro.

Parrots are also known as louros, such like cats also known as kittens.

Cheers, zeca
