Carmen Costa / Paulo Marquez - A Musica de Paulo Vanzolini (1974)

Hello, good evening! Many thanks to every positive vibration sent at the comment section of my last “getting well” announcement. By the way, this post is so far one of the most commented at Loronix. This kind of support makes me feel great and brings the extra energy needed to develop Loronix according with my new health condition. Thanks a lot!

Anyway, this is a very old contribution made by our good friend Joao SP, an album recorded by one of the singers that I like most at the legendary label Marcus Pereira. I know it was made available before at the recommended Toque Musical, but it is so solid that I think it should be also listed at Loronix. And it has been a long time since we made an authentic Samba release. Let’s see.

This is Carmen Costa / Paulo Marquez – A Musica de Paulo Vanzolini (1974), for Marcus Pereira, featuring compositions by the one of the most important Samba composers from São Paulo state, Paulo Vanzolini. Carmen Costa shares the main performer role with Paulo Marquez, well-known by his excellent album recorded in 1959 with Billy Blanco compositions, featuring arrangements by Maestro Radames Gnattali. Personnel listing does not bring detailed information on musicians in the session, except by the participation of Maestro Portinho and Maestro Elcio Alvarez as arrangers with Regional do Jogral as the accompaniment group. Tracks include:

01 - Mulher Que Não Dá Samba (Paulo Vanzolini) with Paulo Marques / Carmen Costa
02 - Falta de Mim (Paulo Vanzolini) with Carmen Costa
03 - Inveja (Paulo Vanzolini) with Carmen Costa
04 - Ronda (Paulo Vanzolini) with Carmen Costa
05 - Samba Abstrato (Paulo Vanzolini) with Carmen Costa
06 - Sorrisos (Paulo Vanzolini) with Carmen Costa
07 - Teima Quem Quer (Paulo Vanzolini) with Carmen Costa / Paulo Marques
08 - Maria Que Ninguém Queria (Paulo Vanzolini) with Paulo Marques
09 - Menina o Que Foi o Baque (Paulo Vanzolini) with Paulo Marques
10 - Cara Limpa (Paulo Vanzolini) with Paulo Marques
11 - Mulher Toma Juízo (Paulo Vanzolini) with Paulo Marques
12 - Choro das Mulatas (Paulo Vanzolini) with Paulo Marques

Carmen Costa is a great singer, and a striking personality and that can be clearly felt when listening to her performing.
And as allways, the better the music, the more difficult to find recordings.
More Carmen Costa would be wellcome.

Thank you so much for this.
May ask for "Ziriguidum no Sambão" from 1971?
