Underrated guitarist and great Brazilian progressive folk psych album, astounding very difficult to find …~


Robertinho from Recife, without a doubt, was one of the Brazilian guitarists most wronged by the public, by critics and especially by record companies. Throughout his career he has done everything a little, accompanied several big names of MPB, went through a heavy stage, formed the "Bunda”, oops, I say, band Yahoo (with the obvious intention of putting some change in the pocket), in short, the guy is “cascudo” and today he is a music producer, arranger and apparently he does not even think about returning to the stage (sorry). 
This inaugural work has everything and more and is the proof of this irremediable injustice. Robertinho manages to mix and master Brazilian rhythms with Jazz and Jazz-rock, is a true feat in terms of arrangement, composition and performance. It is of a beauty, complexity and exemplary technical and artistic competence. 
Pay attention to the “Call” song, the fusion of Brazilian sound with the most genuine Mahavishnu jazz-rock is magnificent. The perfect integration of the cello, the acoustic bass, the trumpet with the guitar and the Portuguese guitar is the work of those who know things. Others that impress are “Signs”, “Dangerous Age”, “Ao Romper D'Alva” and “Agrestina”. 
Fagner was the producer of this piece of music and chose the musicians who participated in this work, with Chico Batera, Marcio Montarroyos, Sivuca, Itiberê, Jamil Joanes, Nivaldo Ornellas, Wagner Tiso and many others…..~


Starts off somewhat underwhelming, but soon becomes increasingly more “weird,” revealing itself by the third track to rank among the pinnacles of Brazilian psychedelia: a work that is dizzily joyous and quite unpredictable, offering long stretches of West Coast acid rock a la Santana, passages of delicate, spiritual folk, touches of ethnic “exotica”, and lots more to boot. Plus it was led by a guitarist who was just 12 years old!…Phallus Dei …..~

Considered a Guitar Hero and one of the best guitarists in Brazil, his trajectory in the universe of popular music enshrines him as a professional of multiple talents and initiatives. He began to play as a boy, and was soon appointed as a prodigy guitarist. At age 12, already considered a virtuoso, he played with his feet. Still as a seminary student, he studied sacred music. In the late 1960s, he accompanied some Young Guardian idols, such as Rosemary and Jerry Adriani. He played in pop bands in the United States and also in the transatlantic Rosa da Fonsêca in cruises along the Brazilian coast, being requested in modalities such as blues, jazz and country. In the period when he was a studio musician, he played radically different styles when accompanying artists such as Jane Duboc, Agnaldo Timóteo, Cauby Peixoto, The Fevers and Hermeto Pascoal. Other modalities that also touched include heavy metal and children’s music. On the occasion of the release of his disc “Rapsódia Rock”, in 1990, was presented dressed of Mozart playing classics. On April 26, 1985, Robertinho, along with his band, MetalMania, opened a show for the American band Quiet Riot in São Paulo. The same happened in Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre and also with the English of Deep Purple. In 1988, Robertinho de Recife recorded an album with the band Yahoo, of which he was the guitarist. Successes like “Love Bite” (version of the song Love Bites, of the British band Def Leppard). Robertinho de Recife had the culmination of his career in the 70’s and 80’s and later devoted himself to producing art, having produced more than 300 albums by many record companies and independent labels, such as Nelson Gonçalves, Angelica, Elba Ramalho, Xuxa , Geraldo Azevedo, Zé Ramalho and Raimundo Fagner, among others. As a guitarist, Robertinho de Recife has participated in concerts or recorded with several international artists such as: George Martin Producer of the Beatles, Watchpocket, Stanley Clarke, Andy Summers (The Police), Deep Purple (when he was in Brazil), Stewart Copeland (The Police), Quiet Riot, Steve Cropper, Miami Sound Machine, John Lee Hooker, Cassandra Wilson, Simon Kirke (Free), Bonnie Ratt, Arto Lindsay, Taj Mahal, Gilles Martin, Dr. John and the Night Tripper and Candy Shoes String.

In addition to the episode of the Chicago band’s invitation to play with them, he played in several international bands such as Watch Pocket, with his band METALMANIA, divided the stage with several international attractions like: Quiet Riot, Deep Purple, and in 2015 returned to stage with the new Metamania and opened the show Judas Priest, Accept, and also made a special participation in the presentation of the band MANOWAR at MONSTER’S OF ROCK 2015 in São Paulo.

The first guitarist from Recife PE to achieve national success, Robertinho do Recife had quite an adventurous career (having played with Watch Pocket) before settling down as a renowned and successful producer in his own studio in Rio de Janeiro, where he produced performers such as Elba Ramalho, Geraldo Azevedo, and Zé Ramalho. As a session musician he worked with different movements represented by performers such as Jerry Adriani, Cauby Peixoto, Jane Duboc, Os Fevers, Rosemary, Hermeto Pascoal, and Fagner, among many others. He recorded eight solo albums from 1977 to 1990. After having been run over at age ten, do Recife had his femur fractured and had to stay at home, where he saw the Beatles and the Rolling Stones on TV. Impressed by the music and especially by the guitars, he insisted that his father buy one. The first group he joined was Os Príncipes, and the first band he formed (at age 12) was Os Ermitões, while he also performed in the Éforos. At 15, he was hired as guitarist for a cruise ship traveling to Rio. From there he went to São Paulo, looking for his uncle who played at the Stardust, the nightclub of Lanny Gordin’s father. After that season he returned to Recife, where he played in several bands that were into Tropicália, Os Mutantes, and the Beatles, like Bambinos and Os Moderatos, which had its own show at the local TV station, Jornal do Commércio. When he was playing in the LSE, Arto Lindsay and Carl Kolb were in the audience. After that, do Recife played in the Contribution. In the early ‘70s, when do Recife was 16, he was invited by Carl Kolb to join the country music band, Candy Show String, from Mississipi. Soon after that he joined Memphis’ Watch Pocket, who had had the international hit “Mammy Blue.” He stayed with the band for nearly two years, until his visa expired. In 1973 do Recife returned to Recife, and in the next year, became Fagner’s musician, recording Raimundo Fagner (1976), soon followed by his own first solo album, Jardim de Infância (1977). Depressed by the death of his second son and determined to abandon music, do Recife refused an invitation to join Chicago after its Brazilian percussionist Laudir de Oliveira suggested his name. At Fagner’s insistence, he participated in his Quem Viver Chorará (1978), on the track “Revelação.” The song became a hit and he started to get invitations. Soon he had his own national hit with “O Elefante.” After several commercial works like the pop band Yahoo, do Recife built his own studio in Rio de Janeiro RJ, where he produced all kinds of works, including his fellow citizens Elba Ramalho (“Flor da Paraíba”) and friends Geraldo Azevedo and Zé Ramalho, keeping a low profile. ~ Alvaro Neder….~
