Som Tres - Um e Pouco, Dois e Bom, Esse Som Tres e Demais (1969)

Before showing this release, I want to make an announcement that is very important to our Brazilian music community. had sometime earlier this week an update. This update came to my attention by the Bossanovadreamer, the connected German friend of Loronix.

But it was not an upgrade, we are talking about a *major* upgrade with approximately 75 new LP covers, bought on a single box a few years ago and forgot in a closet, according with Sabadabada own words. When I read that I ran quickly to my closet and nothing was found... The music was also updated with my highlights to Ruy Maurity - Safra/74 (1973), for Odeon and De Savoya - De Savoya (1972), for Polydor, De Savoya is Ed Lincoln.

That's it Take a time to visit the updated, the Sanctuary of Bossa Nova, here. (

With this update, I could finally manage a quality cover for this release, Som Tres - Um e Pouco, Dois e Bom, Esse Som Tres e Demais (1969) for Odeon. The wait was worth; this cover is amazing with these 70's clothes. It looks like they are dressed for a Bruce Lee movie.

Cesar Camargo Mariano arranges this LP and Som Tres is César Camargo Mariano (piano), Sabá (bass) and Toninho (drums). Tracks include:

01 - Tanga (Toninho / César Camargo Mariano)
02 - Trevo de 4 Folhas (I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover) (M. Dixon / H. Woods)
