It is crazy what is happening with this last Caetano Rodrigues set, several albums are some sorts of "collector dreams items". Actually, some of these albums are well know by collectors and Bossa Nova fans. I'm not talking about the music; the covers are well known to everybody available at the legendary sabadabada.com, bossa.net, auction sites, gemm and other places to go for Brazilian old vinyl’s.
Now it is time to get in touch with the music, great music not commercially available from decades that did not loose the strength and appeal of the many friends who loves the music from Brazil.
This is Conjunto OK - OK! Samba! (1964), for RGE (XRLP - 5259).
I need Quimsy guidance to describe the first and only Conjunto OK album. Walter Arid is in charge of Conjunto OK, the same Walter Arid we already know by Som Okey 5. Perhaps Som Okey 5 is the "evolution" of Conjunto OK. Pretty self-explanatory release that will make the day of those who like cool Brazilian funky grooves (I'm learning) Hammond B3 organ, trombones...

Good mornig Caetano and Zeca,
I am really surprised about this album- it runs very fine with this beautiful vocal touch and the great guitar- I thought before this album is not soo important- Caetano shows us again better and I was wrong.Really wrong.Happy, happy I am here now with this album.

Desculpem o atraso no comentário, mas havia um conjunto musical de bailes em Taubaté que se chamava Ritmos OK. Seria esse?
