Lo Borges & Milton Nascimiento, Studio 1972

Clube da Esquina (in English “Corner’s Club”) was a Brazilian music artists collective, originating in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais.  It is also the name of a double album from 1972. The album (at least in its American release) is sold under the names of Milton Nascimento and Lô Borges.
Clube da Esquina mixes progressive rock, bossa nova and jazz styles, with Brazilian country music and classical music influences. The Beatles and The Platters were also an important influence on “Clube da Esquina”.

Together with Tropicália, Clube da Esquina is usually regarded as the Brazilian musical movement that achieved the greatest international resonance in the post-bossa nova period (beginning in the late 1960s and early 1970s).

In 1963 Milton Nascimento moved from Três Pontas, in the midlands of the state of Minas Gerais, to the capital Belo Horizonte, looking for work. He settled at the Levy building, where the Borges Family, including Márcio Borges, already lived. One day, after watching François Truffaut’s movie Jules et Jim three times in a row, Milton and Márcio started composing (Milton already played in some bars of Belo Horizonte): Márcio wrote the lyrics, and Milton wrote the music. Since then, Márcio always played a great role in the history of Clube de Esquina as lyricist, mainly together with, at a later stage, Fernando Brant. The first album (Clube da Esquina), from 1972, was followed by another one in 1978 (Clube da Esquina 2), that contains tracks written by authors that were not part of the group (Chico Buarque).

Clube Da Esquina is:
Milton Nascimento
14 Bis (band)
Toninho Horta
Tavinho Moura
Lô Borges
Beto Guedes
Wagner Tiso
Fernando Brant (lyricist)
Nelson Ângelo
Márcio Borges (lyricist)

Later, she became an active performer on Festivais da Cancao, TV shows and recordings, working together with renowned Brazilian artists, such as: Edu Lobo, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Toquinho, Vinicius de Moraes, which is Marilia Medalha most frequent composer partner.

photo of Trio Mocoto & Jorge Ben found at Sao Paulo gallerias, next to Disco 7.  I took this shot of a photo during the Japan tours in the 70’s of Ben & Mocoto.

Thanks to Dj Nuts for being the best host in Brazil!

During our stay in BR in 2006 Dj Nuts shared with us some very rare footage of our favorite band, TRIO MOCOTO.  He also shared the history of Trio Mocoto and the connection with Jorge Ben… The footage spoke for its self and in no time we where shopping for all the Mocoto & Ben Records… This dvd footage was shared via Joao Gomez Parahyba or as most of us know him Joao “Comanche” Parahyba (drummer from Trio Mocoto).  The footage flowed up in the digital work of youtube sometime last year.  So here is the videos… Hope you can enjoy!

È o meu prazer de apresentar alguns dos mais raros vídeos do Mocoto e Ben, agradecimentos para escutar!

The content of this mix comes from my dirty records found in Brazil in 2006.  Some of this songs are part of my sets when I play Brazilian music, but for the most part, most of them I’ve never played for the public.  Usually I don’t play slow songs… In the last few months I’ve been playing slow tracks from Brazil & Perù (my birth land) in my car at work and at home.  Hope you can enjoy this mix… Is intended for you to download it… The mix was inspired by poet/song writer/composer Vinicious De Moraes.
