Tamba Trio - Tamba Trio (1966)

Hello, good evening! Here we have an album that does not need to be explained in details. Tamba Trio was one of the nicest vocal / instrumental Bossa Nova combos from the 1960's and it is very hard to find someone that doesn't have good feelings about these guys. This album was released in the middle of two classic and well-known Tamba Trio records, which is Tamba Trio - Tempo (1964) and Tamba 4 - We and the Sea (1967), for A&M records in the US. Thanks Jorge Mello for another nice contribution. Let's see.

This is Tamba Trio - Tamba Trio (1966), for Philips, featuring Luiz Eca, Bebeto, Ohana and the participation of Orquestra Sinfonica do Teatro Municipal. I have been digging Google's results for additional information about this album, but my searches were unsuccessful. I cannot explain why this album is a missing piece even in some important discographies. Anyway, there is a bad thing about this post. I forgot to transfer and include the back cover at the zl ball, which is a very important back cover written by Edu Lobo with detailed information about Tamba Trio and the new composers Caetano Veloso (05 - Quem me Dera, 11 - No Carnaval), Gilberto Gil (03 - Iemanja, 07 - Procissao) and Francis Hime (02 - Minha, 06 - Sem Mais Adeus). The back cover update will come tomorrow night. Stay tuned! Tracks include:


Luiz Eca
(piano, arrangements, music direction)
(bass, flute)

Track list

01 - Canto de Ossanha (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 - Minha (Francis Hime / Ruy Guerra)
03 - Iemanjá (Gilberto Gil / Othon Bastos)
04 - Canção do Nosso Amor (Silveira / Dalto)
05 - Quem Me Dera (Caetano Veloso)
06 - Sem Mais Adeus (Francis Hime / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 - Procissão (Gilberto Gil)
08 - Imagem (Luis Eça / Aloysio de Oliveira)
09 - Pra Dizer Adeus (Edu Lobo / Torquato Neto)
10 - Tristeza (Haroldo Lobo / Niltinho Tristeza)
11 - No Carnaval (Caetano Veloso / Jota)
12 - Veleiro (Edu Lobo)

Fantastic! I have to admit finding Loronix last year has to be one of my highlights! Thank you again for bringing back this fantastic music. Next week when the paycheck comes in, it'll be donation time!

Você tem como atualizar o "Last Loronix Post" em "happyhour" ? É que no meu computador eu não tenho permissão de acessar o rapidshare. Muito obrigado pelo disco ...

Many thanks Zeca. Beautiful music. This is the first Tamba Trio album I've heard. What a group!
Only thing, I realised that Track 7 is missing (Procissão). I downloaded from Happy Hour. Anyone else have this problem? Anyway, missing track or not I loved it.
Muito Obrigado!

Agora está faltando apenas o disco Tamba Trio, lançado pela Philips em 1968, para termos a discografia completa do Tamba Trio no Loronix.
Fantástico Zeca. Obrigado por mais essa excelente postagem.
