In the other hand, I'm a parrot drove by feelings and experience accumulated by a few years as musician and several years as a music fan and avid listener. The first time someone sent me a Jazz record, my listening expectation was exactly what I just heard today when hearing this piece, full of solos, soulful arrangements, different situations throughout the record and within tracks, etc.
This is Rob McConnell & The Boss Brass - Atras da Porta (1983), for MCA. Rob McConnell is a renowned valve piston player and the Boss Brass is a awesome big band, active since the mid 70's with several members, so many that I could not cope with the big listing. Caetano has a special appreciation for this album and I think I will get used to it very soon. The ultimate experience will be tomorrow with zecalouro, checking his parrot reaction to this big 48 minutes set.

Estou com sentimento de culpa, ou sei lá o que seja.
Como não tinha ouvido até hoje esse album?
Por que ninguém me contou, mostrou?
Como é que pode?
Desde o Flowers, que não conhecia, passando pelo Atras da Porta com um arranjo interessantíssimo, me lembrando na primeira metada coisa do Legrand. Com mais impacto. E o Autumn in NY? Com certeza o Cravinho iria aprovar. O Didi deve ser uma homenagem à folha seca (se bem que em 1983 já nã era mais tempo de Didi). O medley, com uma banda cheia, com volume. Mas gostei mesmo foi do samba do 'Amor Até o Fim'. Gostoso demais.
Já está ocupando o cantinho das repetíveis.

E repetindo, entre uma e outra novidade antiga.

Can anyone provide the composers of "Flowers", "Jo Jo's Dance" & Didi? I don't think I've ever heard these songs before.
PS Zeca, this album definitely grows on you. Another fine post.

I was just about to post the answer to who wrote Didi etc, when I saw that the man himself Sr Fernando Gelbard has already responded.
But Fernando is too modest to mention his incredible album called Didi and his work with the cream of Argentinean jazz artist in the 60s and early 70s before he moved to the US where he continues to move in the best jazz circles and was indispensable in helping us to release some of these records on Whatmusic.
