This is United Kingdom time, the country that took position number 6 on last year Loronix visitor statistics. Caetano has repared something very unique and different for UK and I need to change the structure I use to present music at Loronix. W have a compilation this time, blending on a single album 3 others released by UK artists on top of Bossa Nova. Let's see the first.
Really special one and worths all the compilation, very wise of Caetano to include only a single track from Ted Heath - Fever! Ted Heat and His Music. Caetano pick is Garota de Ipanema on top of Big Band arrangements provided by Ted Heath, which is a world wide renowned Big Band leader. Caetano took this track from an LP and for our surprise Garota de Ipanema was not included by the time Fever! was reissued on CD. Get the chance, great opportunity to hear Garota de Ipanema with Big Band arrangements.
01 - Garota de Ipanema
Here we go on second part Caetano's compilation for UK showing Victor Feldman and 4 selected tracks from his album Victor Feldman - A Taste of Honey and a Taste of Bossa Nova. The cover artwork worth the selection and the music complements nicely. It is amazing that A Taste of Honey and a Taste of Bossa Nova is not listed on major music websites; perhaps this album did not have a CD reissue. they could make it, this music is gorgeous, Caetano's selection will show it.
02 - On Green Dolphim Street
03 - Theme From 9073
04 - Moon River
05 - Anna
Closing our UK compilation we go with 3 selections from George Shearing - Shearing Bossa Nova Roy Bradley Quintet. George Shearing has a strong Jazz tradition being leader of one of the most popular Jazz groups in the world, the George Shearing Quintet. Caetano's selection demonstrates what we have on this album, nice instrumental themes on top of Bossa Nova with large space for individual performances. Thanks Caetano for this wonderful gift to UK.
06 - Rio Mio
07 - Bossa Yossa
08 - Schearing a Nova

Thomas on Thursday, 31 May, 2007Very nice. Again I would love to hear these albums in their entirety in the future.
Slight correction: The Shearing material is actually by the Roy Bradley Quintet. I hope you do post George Shearing's "Bossa Nova" album (Capitol) someday.
Also I have the "Braziliana" LP by Jack Parnell (1977, MFP). It's deliciously brassy. Once I figure how to digitalize my vinyl, I would love to share it you and Loronixers.

Please post the Roy Bradley album in its entirety.

I'm proud to say that when Shearing first came to Brasil, in 1979, it was a trio with an Irishman - the great guitarist, Louis Stewart - as well as bassist Brian Torff.
Louis made many friends, particularly Mauricio Einhorn and Sabastio Tapajos, and also tells a great story of meeting Luiz Eca, and then introducing Shearing to Luizino and them playing piano duets into the night in Copacabana.
Louis has subsequently made some great records of Brasillian songs, especially "The Dolphin"... those interested can check Louis on YouTube, there's some great stuff there (he's our greatest musician in Ireland).
If anyone has any recordings (or memories) of that Shearing Trio tour in 1979 (or did they do a TV spot ?) I'd love to hear from YOU!
Many thanks, so, in advance,
