Astor e Sua Orquestra - Samba... So Samba! (1963)

Hello, Good Evening! Here we go on another Caetano Rodrigues contribution, a solo LP by an artist that always delivers wonderful results on everything he makes, from participations as trombonist to more complex accomplishments as arranger on other artists albums. Astor Silva is really extraordinary.

This is Astor Silva e Sua Orquestra - Samba... So Samba! (1963), for Columbia. This is the first Astor Silva album at Loronix and his discography is huge, releasing more than 10 LPs as Astor Silva and other additional albums using other names, such like Lord Astor and as member of the group Lord Astor e Seus Dixiedrolls. I will be tracking down more Astor Silva solo releases and we will have more to come in a near future, he was a fantastic musician and deserves a stronger approach at Loronix. Tracks include:

01 - Mulata Assanhada (Ataulfo Alves)
02 - Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 - Só Danço Samba (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 - Saudade (Emílio Batista / Ruy Rey)
05 - Olhou Pra Mim (Ed Lincoln / Silvio César)
06 - Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
07 - Meditação (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
08 - La Forcata (N. Oliviero / R. Ortolani)
09 - Chora Tua Tristeza (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini)
10 - Doce Amargura (Ti Guardero Nel Cuore) (M. Ciorciolini / R. Ortolani / N. Oliviero)
11 - Eu Nasci no Morro (Ary Barroso)
12 - O Que o Samba Tem (Othon Russo / Astor Silva)
