  • Tamba trio - avanço

    Picked this up at the weekend. Very nice. Don't know much about them, but I've heard the name dropped often. Any further info?

    very nice find.........does it have the little post card highlighting previous releases.......?.....early 60s.....think it's their 2nd lp.....once upon a time this was a red hot lp and was changing hands for a hundred big fellas.........nowadays it's all calmed down and you're looking at a good deal less than half that tops for a nice copy........actually ain't very scarce but it's a classic record.........think they were very popular at the time and probably sold an awful lot of records.......

      No card and it doesn't have a proper sleeve, just a wrap around piece of card. Brazilian Philips issue. Nice versions of Mas Que Nada and Girl From Ipanema. By the sounds of it a bargain for 20p.

        All the Philips releases up until the 70s were without sealed edges! Tamba Trio are one of the most famous bossa trio's from the 60s & 70s, recorded a couple of albums for A&M as well. (look out for the A&M 7" version of "California Soul&quot The great piano player from the group Luiz Eca used to be the piano teacher of a friend of mine in Rio called Marvio Ciribelli, who has now gone on to be one of the best jazz/bossa pianist in Rio at the moment.
        20 pence is a bargain, as this should still fetch around £30-40 with most dealers....

          Nice? That's my personal favourite! Not that I have the LP - just the cash-in 12" from France '98... Nice catch Bill.
          You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

            Didn't they record as Tamba Four for A&M?

            I think there are a couple of tunes by 'em on that A&M Brazillian sampler ("Carnival In Rio" or summat).

              Yup, Tamba Four recorded on both A&M and CTI. I have the California Soul 7" which is a splendid uptempo jazzy take on the classic, and also the 'Samba Blim' LP on CTI (from whence the 'Brazilian Carnival' tracks are taken). The title track of that LP is my fave and it also featured on the Mojo Club comp 'Dancefloor Jazz Vol.3', pop pickers.

                They recorded two LPs and a 7" only release as a four member group for A&M records, but went back to the original trio on later Brazilian recordings....

                  That''s the one. Great LP (for the benefit of anyone who hasn't got it)

                  It doesn't seem to turn up very often in my experience and has the same cover image and a similar title to another record (on Contour I think) which is v. poor.
