From the Artist

In the 1960s and into the early 70s, somewhere well down the social ladder, there were any number of cover bands playing in the new discotheques and nightclubs in the Zona Norte and in Copacabana. As imported records were scarce it was usual for each bar or club to have it’s own cover band; a hangover from the American influenced piano bars like the Drink club which featured the groups of Ed Lincoln and Celso Murilo. D’Angelo was one such bandleader who recorded with his group for independent labels like Caravelle, Atonal, and, as on this album, Equipe.

These bands made records that were current and up to the minute with little thought or regard for how posterity would see them as artists – but that’s what makes them all the more interesting to us today. They are a snapshot of the underground Rio scene from the late 60s and early 70s, far removed from the official version of MPB history and the big names of the day. Often these bands were proving grounds for young players and singers who went through tough apprenticeships before finding their own feet and their own sound. People like Orlann Divo, Ed Lincoln, Celso Murilo, Wilson Simonal, Tony Tornado, Marcío Montarroyos, Claudio Roditi and Rubens Bassini were all members of house bands at one time or another.

Neither history nor memory tells us who the players and singers were on this D’Angelo album, nor do they say much about D’Angelo himself. But then these records were made to be bought, danced to and then probably discarded. Thankfully the master tapes were kept which allowed to rediscover the sounds of Conjunto de D’Angelo!
