Luiz Eca - Brazil 70 (1970)

Hello, good evening! I need to reach my bed early today. It is necessary to wake up very early tomorrow to visit my vet for a scheduled maintenance. I was planning another release for today, a release sponsored by Jorge Mello that requires a solid research. I was very close to my bed when I remembered another Jorge Mello contribution that would be really easy to review, which is this one, an album recorded by Luiz Eca in 1970 for Philips, produced by Roberto Menescal and – as the cover shows – tailored for the international market. Let’s see.

This is Luiz Eca – Brazil 70 (1970), for Philips. Besides Luiz Eca piano and arrangements in all tracks, little I know about this album. My Google searches did not return credits on musicians and additional details on this session. This is a Luiz Eca career album that I never heard about and we should say “Thank You!” to Jorge Mello for another fantastic addition to Loronix. Tracks include:

01 - O Cantador (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta)
02 - Andança (Danilo Caymmi / Edmundo Souto / Paulinho Tapajós)
03 - Cantiga Por Luciana (Edmundo Souto / Paulinho Tapajós)
04 - País Tropical (Jorge Ben "Jorge Benjor")
05 - Travessia (Milton Nascimento / Fernando Brant)
06 - Sá Marina (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
07 - O Sonho (Egberto Gismonti)
08 - Oferenda (Luis Eça / Lenita Eça)
09 - Se Você Pensa (Roberto Carlos / Erasmo Carlos)
10 - Zazueira (Jorge Ben "Jorge Benjor")
11 - Juliana (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)

Always great to hear anything that Eca orchestrates. Thanks for this, i like the version of 'O Sonho'.

Not my personal favorite Eça record, but nonetheless an entertaining listen throughout. Issued on the same year (1970), I would recommend the masterpiece "La Nueva Onda Del Brasil" recorded in Mexico and reissued by the great Vampisoul label on Spain:
