057° .DIRTY BRAZILIAN JAZZ. selected by Les Mains Noires

Yes I know...almost 9 months without a proper selection... I can only apologize for this and tell you that no, I do not forget you and no, I'm not dead! Just starting a new part of life in Sao Paulo since a bit more than a year now. Goma-Gringa's project is taking the main part of my time, and It's a pleasure! My records are still in France and I do not have a correct system to record my new founds here. That are the reasons of such an absence!

But here finally is a new selection!
I'm proud to present to you 18 tracks collected mainly while my six first months here. You'll easily understand the title referring to the successful 'Dirty Caribbean Jazz' serie and his raw, oldie and perfumed mood! So yes, that's a 48 min long journey through Brazilian sounds from the 40s, 50s and early 60s that I propose to to you to discover or rediscover.

The selection featured Samba Jazz, Batuque, Chote, Capoeira, Baião, Pontos Cruzados and more... Trying to give you a small overview of the Brazilian musical diversity and richness.

Give it an ear, and please, let me know your thoughts about it.

  9. This is so nice!
    My morning at work was so much better while listening this songs.
    This is a great moment of brazilian music and, at the same time, almost forgotten, not everyones knowns about it.
    Brazilians have not a fresh memory about its past, and most of young people never heard this before, except for Luiz Gonzaga (who is a excelent postrait of the region that he came from).

    thanks. Fernando.

    1. Hi Fernando!
      First of all, many thanks the time you took to send this comment! Much appreciated!
      Then, I'm glad that you enjoyed this selection. She has been made with love so It's always a pleasure to hear from people that find an interest in it!
      That's very interesting what you said about Brazilian people! I guess that this lack of memory of the past is not a Brazilian subject but most countries have to front this problem. But in the same time, I've been amazed when I arrived here in SP by something very Brazilian, that inner love for Brazilian music. I mean, in every party around town, whenever you start playing Brazilian music, everybody start singing and dancing and screaming! That's something really nice! In France, if you talk about Gainsbourg for exemple to the youngest generation, very few of them will really know about him... and that's a pity! I wish France could have a memory of the national culture as strong as the Brazilian one.
      Oh and one last thing, yep, Gonzaga is really a king! And he's super known here in Brazil but in Europe or US, too less people knows him! That's (apart of the incredible musical qualities) the main reason of his presence in this selection!
      Abraços Fernando! And thanks for all!
      fred.
