SILVA Moacyr 1962 - Brazil

The bossanovadreamer, official Loronix sax consultant, will be very happy with this LP, perhaps The Jazzman, also. I'm only a little disappointed to do not have the original cover issued in 1962, only this one, reissued a couple of years after. Anyway it is a great record that you will hear several times. Don't let the "Bolero" title cheats you if you do not appreciates the genre, this is just another awesome Moacyr Silva sax LP.
This is Moacyr Silva e Seu Conjunto - E Tempo de Bolero (1962), for Copacabana, a selection of twelve International standards renditions by Moacyr Silva e Seu Conjunto, featuring Moacyr Silva (sax), Chaim Lewak (piano), Edson (drums) and Luis Marinho (bass). As you read, Chaim Lewak, the pianist from Quarteto Nostalgia LP, is a member of Moacyr Silva's Conjunto and also makes the difference here. I'm not sure about the drummer, credited as Edson. By the playing style, it is probably the legendary Edison Machado. Anyway, pretty self-explanatory, Moacyr Silva seems to be one of those artists that are unable of deliver a bad record
