João Theodoro Meirelles: sax (Dom Um Romao: drums)
October 10, 1940 Rio - June 3, 2008 Rio
This is my collection of J.T. Meirelles: saxophonist, flautist, arranger, composer extraordinaire.
Nine recordings by the brilliant João Theodoro Meirelles.
The classic 1963 LP "Cool Samba" my father gave me this record when I was 18 years old.
Billy Taylor was the first African-American to lead a television studio orchestra in the 1950s, hosting the series “The Subject Is Jazz.” In the 1960s he helped start up 'Jazzmobile', which brought free music to inner New York City neighborhoods on a mobile float. Billy Taylor hosted a jazz show on National Public Radio from 1977 to 1982.

Cuban LP's and recordings which include particular "styles" and "forms" of (playing & singing) "Cuban" music that unfortunately have become, or are on their way to becoming lost art forms. As well as related materiel which may not be "directly" from Cuba.
Mostly LP's that are either long out of print and-or obscure and music from "my own personal collection".
Occasionally some Brasilian things will be added that are hard to find, even on the other great Brasilian blogs, many that are listed in my Blog links. And maybe some things that have nothing to do with Cuban or Brasilian music.
It takes time to do all this, scanning the covers, resizing and uploading, often changing & correcting the info.
Have fun!
