Between this album and the 1971 incarnation of this very fine soul-pop vocal group, I think I prefer the Trio Ternura for overall continuity.  The tracks that are good are very, very good here.  Super worth having for those great tracks and the, as always, outstanding production from RCA Victor Brasil.  Enjoy!

I offer these words by our dear friend of this page Greg Caz.

"Anamaria and Mauricio were a mystery co-ed vocal duo of the early 70s about which very little is known, a la Barbara & Ernie. They were discovered by Antonio Adolfo singing in a club in São Paulo around 1969 and he resolved to get them signed and produce them, resulting in their 1970 debut release, "No No No...Estamos Na Nossa," a pleasant and groovy sunshine pop/bossa outing on which they were back by a later iteration of the Jongo Trio. Its tracklist was a sweet collection of gems by Adolfo, Marcos Valle, Ivan Lins, Ruy Maurity and others. Following its release, A & M contributed a few tracks to TV Novela soundtracks and released several singles while preparing their second LP which would turn to be both their masterpiece and their final release, "Vol. 2." This album showed them growing and expanding their musical universe by leaps and bounds, roping in the likes of Hermeto Pascoal and Arthur Verocai to create a stunningly mature and consistent, and at times even experimental, set of tracks. Everything from sharp jazzy samba/bossa to progressive pop to baroque flourishes to semi-musique-concrete passages make "Vol. 2" an outstanding and highly memorable release. A & M sadly faded from the scene in the years following "Vol. 2"'s 1972 release, and one or the other of them is said to have perished in a car accident later in the 70s, although no concrete documentation seems to exist anywhere to confirm this due to the duo's unjust obscurity. But their recorded work, a brief and precious catalog, remains and speaks quite loudly for itself."

Thank you Greg for these insights and sharing these with this page.

Walter Santos - Bossa Nova [1963 Audio Fidelity] 320 kbps - 76 mb


Super nice break out Bossa session recorded for the Audio Fidelity label in the very fine year of 1963 in New York. The very same year as the legendary concert held at Carnergie Hall. Gee, even the Beatles passed through the same hall the very same year. If you get my meaning? Great voice. Fine song-writer & super nice support coming from the organ playing of Mr. Walter Wanderley. This may be one of my favorite sightings of Wanderley on organ. Very, very nice!

File Under: Bossa Nova

P.S. Not my usual type of post, but a session I really stand behind.
Thank you Greg for this share. Skips & pops & all.
