Even if he insists on not knowing this, Brazil had his Carole King, even entitled to the beauty of the American singer-songwriter. The girl attends the name of Luiza Maria and recorded a rare and classic disc in 1975 by Philips, accompanied by musicians such as former Traffic Jim Capaldi and the newcomers Lulu Santos, Rick Ferreira and Antônio Adolfo. The repertoire, modern and with fresh pop, included an unpublished song of Raul Seixas.

With a career as promising as meteoric, Luiza Maria entered the history of national rock with the album Eu Queria Ser Um Anjo. In ten songs, most of her work, she shows her refined attributes of composer, parading rocks, blues and Zeppelian climates, producing a result without similar at the time. With her voice a little hoarse - but hot and in tune - and moving between Rita Lee's rock and Gal Costa's MPB, she's fighting for space between the best singers of her generation.

Very current in all aspects, the album opens with the folk-rock "Na Casca do Ovo", signaling the joyful and moving tone of the work. "You need to understand that your charm was already / And if you close the door / I enter through the window / I'll show you the verse I made / I'll teach you the rock again / And with a kiss given well / I break the shell of Egg ... ", he sings. "Maya", only her, with arrangements of Capaldi, brings the guitar of Lulu Santos, with Vímana, in one of the most inspired moments of his career. "So Hot" highlights, besides the jazzy vocal interpretation, the piano "homemade" by Antônio Adolfo. And the engaging funk-Latin "Miro Giro" pays tribute to Santana.

"Príncipe Valente" marks the partnership Raul Seixas-Paulo Coelho on the album. "Do not Run Behind the Sun," with a bouncing piano by Mu (The Color of Sound) and Rick's fuzz-guitar, has the classic rocky feel of the 70's. But it's in "Universe and Fantasy" with a " Stairway To Heaven, "which rock 'n' roll makes its mark deeper.

After 39 years, I Wanted To Be An Angel remains modern, owing nothing to the best records recorded in its time and hoping that its beauty will arouse the sensitivity of new listeners.....

In 1975, he recorded the LP "I wanted to be an angel" (Philips), produced by Sérgio de Carvalho. The album was attended by Jim Capaldi, Lulu Santos, Rick Ferreira, Antonio Adolfo, Chico Batera, Arnaldo Brandão, Gustavo Schroeter, Dadi Carvalho and Mú Carvalho, among other musicians, who worked under Sérgio Carvalho's musical production and musical coordination of Rick Ferreira. The repertoire includes his compositions "In the shell of the egg" (c / Paulo Coelho and Rick Ferreira), "Maya", "So hot" (Luiza Maria), "Do not run after the sun", "O anjo" "" I am you "(c / Rick Ferreira, Eveline and Márcio Werneck) and" Universe and fantasy ", besides" The brave prince "(Raul Seixas and Paulo Coelho) and" Bottom of the pit "(Rick Ferreira And Márcio Werneck).
