I had the chance to watch a little performance of a new and very solid Brazilian vocal group, Grupo Nós Quatro, a quartet of voices lead by the mighty Celia Vaz, a Brazilian arranger, violonista and composer, with songs recorded by many Brazilian artists and arrangers delivered to classic albums, such like Dom Um Romao - Hotmosphere, one of the most downloaded albums at Loronix.
I spoke with some friends at that concert about this Brazilian vocal group - Grupo Chovendo na Roseira - introduced to me by Carlos Braga and just a few said know their existence. That's why I think this nice album will make the day of several fans of female vocal groups. Let's see.
This is Grupo Chovendo na Roseira - Interpreta Tom Jobim (1988), for Som Livre, another Caetano Rodrigues contribution made by request of Carlos Braga. Carlos knows everything about Chovendo na Roseira and sent to us a nice text with the information that nobody knows, as follows (Carlos, correct if I made a mistake on translation, please):
"Grupo Chovendo na Roseira features Bia Paes Leme, Belva, Soraya e Lu (daugther of singer Carlos Jose and nephew of Luiz Claudio Ramos, which is a violonista and official Chico Buarque arranger). In the year of 1977 the group had a different name, "Quatro Cantos" and as far as I know, they did not released any recordings. I tried to produced a LP, with the help of Raymundo Bittencourt, but the girls had others name in mind -- the violonista Ary Sperling and the pianist Joao Reboucas -- their mentors at that time.
Later on, the group got new members - Ary Sperling (vocals) and Ronaldo (vocals) -- and changed their name to Viva Voz, with one album already available at Loronix. When Viva Voz terminated, the original girls of "Quatro Cantos" assembled Chovendo Na Roseira and lauched this first an only tribute album to Tom Jobim with Orchestra arrangements by Eduardo Souto Netto, also in charge of some vocal arrangements. The other arrangements are from Bia Paes Leme, which made a career as arranger after the end of Chovendo na Roseira.
In my opinion this album is wonderful, with highlights to the soprano voice of Lu (Luciana), the beautiful arrangement of Estrada do Sol, my favorite. I sure Loronixers will appreciate this album."
Thanks Carlos Braga!
