Bossa Nova Meets USA - Compilation by Caetano Rodrigues

.
.
Originalmente postado no Loronix em  01 de junho 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.







The United States have the second position at Loronix visitors ranking, which is not a surprise, the US have the largest music market in the world and country affairs with Bossa Nova started since the beginning, being both influenced by each other. More country info at this post closing, let's talk about the music.

Blogger has been down in the last hour and I could not brief with Caetano, but I want to say that what is being delivered here for the US do not have any parallel within the industry. Our International tribute makes me understand that Caetano is also mastery on building compilations. I though compilations were just a matter of setting up a bunch of tracks together on any given order. I was wrong. Compilations are all about making fine selections and align them on a manner that you make a kind of curve with ups and downs using different situations to delivery a solid listening experience as a whole.

This is Bossa Nova Meets USA - Compilation by Caetano Rodrigues. Breathtaking panorama of Brazilian music renditions performed by best of breed American artists. You should take it and file as unique. Nineteen tracks and 80 minutes of listening pleasure. I will highlight some situations.

Caetano selection starts with Oscar Peterson Trio - Triste, worth the compilation alone, there are several different situations inside the song, sometimes they "Jazz away" and you realize how they will be back to Triste.

The third track features Nat King Cole performing Garota de Ipanema, a unique interpretation, recorded just a few months before Nat King Cole's passing.

I could make others picks but, I will jump to the last track Desafinado, by The Hi-Lo's, wise close of Caetano that makes you feel with that feeling of "I want to hear it again!".

It was very hard to find an image to represent the United States, I tried several different approaches with buildings and nature, skylines, panorama, beaches and none could meet my expectations for USA. So I decided to dig my personal photo collection taken with my digital camera in US and I found this picture with homage to John Lennon taken in front of Dakota Building, Central Park, New York.

There is something special with this image; it was taken at my first day in New York and the exact day when people were celebration 20 years of John Lennon's passing. I did not realize that and it was a very special moment for me. My apologies on putting this picture using personal matter as criterion, but it represents a special day for me, a day that zecalouro spent a great time in the United States.

It is not a surprise the second position taken by the United States last year. The US is the major music market in the world, Brazil is the second one and both countries were musically connected since Bossa Nova has emerged.

Let's go thought the numbers and since my web statistics software makes regional analysis it is interesting to inform Loronixers that all 50 US regions reached Loronix last year, California took the lead with 23% of visitors, followed by New York with 13%, Illinois 5% and Texas 4%. There are Loronixers on 1,335 US cities with New York concentrating most visits with 10%, followed by Los Angeles 8%, San Francisco 5%, Irvine 4% and Chicaco with 3%.

Thanks very much Loronixers from the US, you are on each US States and 1,335 cities and this is truly awesome from zecalouro perspective.

Thanks, zeca

Actually, Oscar Peterson is Canadian. He was born in Montreal and lives in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto. We Canadians are very prickly about these matters.

I noticed quite a few typos... misspelled artists' names, so I'll try to help. I'll just edit the whole list and paste it in, and if you want to zeca, you can just copy and paste my edited list into Loronix...

Nice compilation. I would have picked Oscar Peterson's version of "Wave" as I think it is far more impressive than his "Triste". OP's version followed by Sinatra's version would have been awesome.
By the way, at 80:49 all the tracks will not fit on one CD.

Grande Caeeetano !!!
I am sitting here with big eyes and totally wondering.
Is there really no thing outside Brazil bossa project/album you don't know by name ?? I told you about that I make here some special things for you but now I see that you really know everyrhing which includes words Bossa also the scene even outside from Brazil-
so I see here Jim Tomlinson , the told small child of Stan Getz -great Saxo player- , which I thought he is more unknown outside of Europe and I thought to prepare for you.
You are really great Caetano- You know everything about Bossa Nova even things happened here very quiet in Europe.
No name can surprise you.I like you very much for this
Thanks for all!!
