Everyone is bald to know that Samba is a genre/style of music 'brother' of Jazz and I think it deserves a tiny space here in JMA.

First, I'd like to show you the samba school battery and the way they play during the samba parade (a contest among schools that takes place every year during Carnival).

Leornard Bernstein once said that it should be impossible for him to command 300 persons being in the same level and dancing at the same time. Well, some dudes do it.

Samba de raiz (Roots samba) is a sub-genre not related necessarily with Carnival parade. Anyway, composers are generally the same but the rhythm is cruder, traditional.

Caxambu is a samba sub-genre that keeps a more definite African flavor.

Maxixe is a kind of proto-samba... this song originally recorded in 1928 shows a mix between maxixe and samba.

Here the 1916 original version of the so-called 1st samba. However, according to some musicologists this song was actually a maxixe.

With Noel Rosa (1910-1937) the urban samba got its final shape - a feature that is copied until today. 

This song is from 1930.



This guy produced with only 26 years of age a tsunami of sambas and related songs hard to be reached.

Chico Buarque, the most prolific Brazilian popular composer is a die-hard fan of Noel Rosa.

This 1937 song is considered by many as the pinnacle of the urban samba. The cover shown above was done by Chico Buarque in 1984.

Thanks, Matt... I'll try to show the many faces of Samba (just like Jazz) and put it in a chronological order whenever possible. Smile

Back in the 1930s, while composers like Noel Rosa worked more in the urban side of samba other composers soldiered more to link samba with its African roots (origins of samba de raiz).

This song was first recorded in 1931.

Meanwhile, some dreamers like Ary Barroso believed that samba could be the 'classical music' of Brazil. Amid his delirious he made this one well-known all over the world.

Here the original recording done in 1939.



Check the arrangement extremely bold for the time.

Samba is not only a brand of Rio de Janeiro. Actually it is composed in all parts of Brasil, like Bahia where they play samba in a different mood, more slow, sweeter and warmer.

Dorival Caymmi (1914-2008) was the most famed of the Bahia style samba composers.

The truth is that the samba that Carmen Miranda presented in the USA was much more in the Bahia style than in the Rio de Janeiro style.

This song was composed by Dorival Caymmi around 1938.

São Paulo has its own samba style.

This song is a fine example. The original recording is from 1953 but this one was made in 1975.

It became obvious that coming from the same nest one day Samba and Jazz should join again. The result was Bossa Nova.

After all that wonderful music.........Liked Ismael Silva and Ary Barrosa......something about that old stuff Hug
 
I don't have a lot of Brazilian.....but I have Caetano Velosa, Maria Bethania (his sister as you would know), Sergio Mendes of course, 1 Gilberto Gil and thats  his Bob Marley reggae album LOL, Hermeto Pascoal, Flora Purim but I really dug this one which I bought years back and I am slapping it in the player now. I got a couple more albums of Daniela Mercury ...the next was good but I found the other after too poppy for me.

I'll check all this out Guigo. Right now we probably put Samba records in Latin Jazz or possibly World Fusion if it is Samba mixed with other elements.
