Claudette Soares - Claudette Soares (1965)

I was chatting with a friend and we agreed that this album is probably the best one recorded by Claudette Soares. We also agree this cover is the best of all reissues available where Claudette Soares appears with very different faces on each one. Claudette Soares remains in plenty activity, recording albums, making concerts and we need to remember in the 50 years of Bossa Nova that Claudette Soares is an important artist with a strong connection with the movement. I think you should give this album a try. Let's see.

This is Claudette Soares - Claudette Soares (1965), for Mocambo, presented here by a late 60's Beverly reissue on a very good transfer, taken from a really nice vinyl. In spite of being a classic album, little I know about this session, probably the first Mocambo issue has complimentary information on arranger and musicians. Anyway, the weekend is getting closer and I'm trying to accomplish another Samba Saturday. Stay tuned. Tracks include:

01 - Gente (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
02 - Chuva (Durval Ferreira / Pedro Camargo)
03 - Mar Amar (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
04 - Primavera (Vinicius de Moraes / Carlos Lyra)
05 - Barquinho Diferente (Sergio Augusto)
06 - A Resposta (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
07 - Preciso Aprender a Ser Só (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
08 - Vivo Sonhando (Tom Jobim)
09 - Ode à Primavera (Ely Arcoverde / Newton Campos)
10 - Tem Que Ser Azul (Messias Santos Jr.)
11 - Eu Só Queria Ser (Vera Brasil / Myriam Ribeiro)
12 - Razão de Viver (Eumir Deodato / Paulo Sergio Valle)

Good morning, Zeca, I have this LP and in my opinion is Claudette´s best. She´s backed by JONGO TRIO, led by the talented pianist CIDO. Congratulations on the great post!
Greetings, Victório
