Henrique Simonetti - Panorama Musical (1956)

Hello, good evening! I got amazed when I found this album for an unbelievable price last weekend. It was filed on those generic shelves of "everything for R$ 1", which is something strange. This is an important album, it is the first album recorded by one of the most influential record companies in Brazil, RGE. Let's see.

This is Henrique Simonetti - Panorama Musical (1956), for RGE, the first album released by RGE, featuring Maestro Simonetti arrangements for six Brazilian tunes. Just in case you missed, Maestro Simonetti is an Italian musician that came to Brazil in 1941 and became an influential artist until his departure back to his homeland in the mid 1960's. RGE kindly delivers personnel listing with some surprises, including Maestros Waldomiro Lemke and Silvio Tancredi on bass and piano and a surprising participation of Zito Righi at clarinet, credited as Leonardo Righi, which is his real name. Tracks include:


Enrico Simonetti

Olá - Belíssimo álbum, porém os gringos não sabem que os títulos são uns e as musicas são outras! Guacyra é na verdade Saudades de Matão, e por aí vai!
