Cordas in "Violão
Violão PRO, one of the leading music magazines has an article
on Euclides Marques & Luizinho 7 Cordas
here is a record that I recommend not only for music lovers, but
above all, for those taken aback by recent news, remain wary of
Brazil’s future. How can one not believe in the future
of a country that produces guitarists such as Euclides Marques
and Luizinho 7 Cordas? Remexendo not only shows us that Brazil
has a bright future but also proves to us that we live in a first
world country that ranks as a supreme power in its capacity to
produce quality instrumentalists and music.
Euclides and Luizinho are successors of two unforgettable instrumental
duos in Brazil. The first duo is formed by Pixinguinha (sax)
and Benedito Lacerda (flute), responsible for extraordinary interpretations
of the “choro” as well
as some of the best instrumental records in Brazilian history. The second duo
comparison is even more complete for also including 6 and 7 string guitars, played
by none other than Raphael Rabello and Dino 7 Cordas. I recall mentioning in
my introductory text of their record that the combination of Raphael and Dino
sounded as important as one between Noel Rosa and Chico Buarque de Holanda.
Now with Euclides and Luizinho, I had the sweet sensation that
the art of Raphael (who unfortunately left us in the prime of life)
and Dino (retired, 87 years old) is still alive.
Like the former two duos, Euclides and Luizinho excelled in their
repertoire and selection of supporting renowned instrumentalists
such as Paulo Moura, Laercio de Freitas, the young Quinteto em
Branco e Preto group, among others. It is difficult to single out
a particular track given their greatness, but it is impossible
not to highlight some such as Primeiro Amor (Patápio Silva) and Desprezado
(Pixinguinha). Similarly, one cannot help but appreciate the tribute paid to
Paraguayan-Brazilian Agustín Barrios and the memorable Canhoto (Américo
Jacomino) for their Marcha dos Marinheiros with citation of O Guarani, by Carlos
Finally, the Remexendo CD is one of those works of art that we
have to be grateful for. Thank you very much, Euclides Marques
and Luizinho 7 Cordas.
