Brazilian by heart or soul, rejoice : Vadim Music is now offering the reissue of one of the trendiest albums these days, Erica Chinquinho et les show-rio, a rare album indeed, both by its musical qualities and by the number of copies that circulated at the time.
Released in the late seventies by the independent French label Sonopresse, Brazil 77, sole collaboration of these two expatriated Brazilan musicians, works as displays an uncompromising anthology of the fascinating musical diversity of Brazil.
Separately, the two companions were no novices when they met in Paris on a nice spring day, to seal on their alliance on vinyl:
Erica Norimar began her career in Rio as a dancer and singer, and published an album under her own name before leaving for Spain and integrating a band now mythical :Brazil Aquarius. There, she worked, among others, with the best bossa nova musicians in the country, Juan Carlos Calderon and Jordi Sabatès, before relocating again, this time to Paris.
Francisco « Chinquinho » Timotéo, accomplished composer and guitar player, became a professional in Brazil at the age of 14. He notably played on stage with the monumental Vinicius de Moraes and worked as an arranger for the brazilian radio and television. He chose to move to Paris and as soon as he arrived, started the band Os Maracatu, whose two albums both found success internationally.
The dozen of musical gems included in this album reflect their casing, this sleeve that makes you want to travel, conjures up the wildest fantasies one can harbour about Brazil. The many multicoloured and multiracial facets of that cradle of music that is Brazil are amply showcased throughout this opus:
Haunting Bossas and Saudades (Dodo, Ligia) displaying the incredible harmony, the complete fusion of these two tones. Springy jazzy Bossas (Chatanooga Choo Choo, Vatapa, De Frente Pro Crime) revealing Chiquinho's qualities as a melodist. Efficient and striking Sambas (Kid Cavaquinho, A Filha Da Chiquita Bacana). A Forrow, typical of the region of Nordeste (Forro), a Jazz instrumental à la Stephane Grapelli (Brasileirinho), showcasing the lead guitar. And last but not least, an uptempo Bossa (Nega De Obaluae) which could melt down the coldest dancefloor.
