Wilson Simonal - Vou Deixar Cair (1966) with Som 3

Caetano left Sao Paulo today for a short business trip and made a phone call to remind me of Wilson Simonal passing, seven years ago, June 26, 2000. I know we had the great Joia, Joia less than a week, but this album is so great that I could not resist showing Loronixers. Just after post closing, I'm announcing in Portuguese the invitation I received from Max de Castro to be his guest on a concert tomorrow, part of a series of concerts celebrating 40 years of Canecao nightclub in Rio de Janeiro. Thanks Max, I'm honored, Loronix is all about the Brazilian musicians and the respect and promotion of their art is the strongest Loronix value proposition.

This is Wilson Simonal - Vou Deixar Cair (1966), for Odeon. This cover artwork alone worth your attention as well the music, Wilson Simonal is at his peak and backed by the mighty Som 3, the legendary instrumental combo lead by Cesar Camargo Mariano and complemented by the sax tenor of Juarez Araujo and Maurilio da Silva Santos trumpet. I hope you enjoy this release. Tracks include:
