Mario Castro Neves & Messias - The Wonderful Latin American Sound of Brazil (1967)

Hello, Good Evening! Do not miss Loronix party at Drink Cafe, Lagoa, Rio de Janeiro. If you are out of Rio, use your frequent flyer balance and come to the party, no transportation costs. Just kidding, I spoke with Kiko Continentino and he loved the idea of gathering Loronixers to his gig with Paulinho Guitarra, once in a lifetime opportunity to watch a nice instrumental music concert and get along with Loronixers.

Let's start the day with an album that features two great musicians and it is all about party with nice female vocals and scats.

This is Mario Castro Neves & Messias - The Wonderful Latin American Sound of Brazil (1967), for RCA Victor. What you read is what you get, this is an album by the brother of the Legendary Oscar Castro Neves, Mario Castro Neves and the Brazilian guitar player Messias, a musician that people cannot stop talking about since Caetano sent us his tribute album to Antonio Carlos Jobim. This is not instrumental music, but a collection of Bossa Nova tunes backed up by a nice piano, bass, drums and guitar group and lyrics sung by girls. Tracks include:

01 - Candomblé (Edmundo Souto / Danilo Caymmi / Paulo Antônio)
02 - Yearning Lovers (Mário Castro Neves / Sarita)
03 - Nanã (Moacir Santos / Mário Telles)
04 - De Brincadeira (Edmundo Souto / Danilo Caymmi)
05 - Bye Bye Blackbird (R. Henderson / M. Dixon)
06 - E Nada Mais (Durval Ferreira / Luis Fernando Freire)
07 - Keep Talking (Donato / Crystal)
08 - Vem Balançar (Walter Santos / Tereza Souza)
09 - Once More (Thais do Amaral)
10 - Morte de Um Deus do Sal (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
11 - Tá Por Fora (Wilson Simonal / Chico Feitosa)
12 - Corcovado (Tom Jobim)
13 - Carolina (Chico Buarque)
14 - Costa Brava (Mario Castro Neves / Chico Feitosa)
15 - Rosa Morena (Dorival Caymmi)
16 - Estrada do Sol (Antonio Carlos Jobim / Dolores Duran)

Zeca, I believe this file is a different Mario Castro Neves album which was released on BMG Brazil. The album cover has the group posing on a dock in front of a ship. I think the actual Latin Sound album includes bossa standards by Mario Castro Neves & Messias on alternating tracks.

Oi Zeca,
Acho que muitos loronixers vão fazer coro comigo:
Uma pena que o Mario Castro Neves tenha gravado tão pouco!
Esse album é praticamente uma reedição do Mario Castro Neves & Samba S.A. com outra capa.

Esse é um dos meus albuns favoritos, recomendo muito esse post. Mas creio que seja uma reedição do Mario Castro Neves Samba S.A. Até a ordem das músicas é igual. Concordo com o pigmaliao70, realmente é uma pena o Mario ter gravado tão pouco.
