Otacílio Melgaço


Ele faz um som bastante intenso, multi instrumentista virtuoso tem o poder de nos transportar através  de suas melodias complexas, uma viagem ao seu mundo interno ou nosso mundo interior que transborda em suas notas. Fiquei muito impressionada com o que ouvi, o som remete ao krautrock, psicodélico muito louco enfim, pode ser também entendido como várias coisas, mas é o "Otacílio Melgaço".

Vale a pena dar uma conferida no trabalho dele, abaixo os links para audição.

Opus Avantra - Lord Cromwell (1975) RIO/Avant-Prog Italy

OPUS AVANTRA comprises three parts: OPUS (opera - work) AVAN (avanguardia - vanguard) and TRA (tradition - tradition). Their style blends elements of progressive, classical, opera, jazz and just plain general weirdness, using keyboards, bass, drums, violins, cellos, clarinet, flutes and other instruments. They were highly influential in the progressive avant-garde scene of the time.

"Introspezione" also referred to as "Donella Del Monaco" has all kinds of classical influences including contempory classic. Beautiful operatic voice which I like very much. The second album ("Lord Cromwell") is more difficult, almost avant garde but contempory and old classical music inspired too. It takes time to fully appreciate this album but it's worth to give it that time. "Strata" has beautiful vocal passages, some difficult piano pieces but very interesting too! The fourth album "Lyrics" is somewhat overshadowed being less difficult, less intense, with more minimal of ideas, but still coming forth from the first aproach. Still they are one of the all time best Italian bands. If you're up to it, start with "Introspezzione".

Supersister - Present from Nancy (1970) Canterbury Scene • Netherlands

SUPERSISTER had a sound very much in the Canterbury scene, and if I had to compare them to another band it would with no doubt be CARAVAN. They blend their own Dutch ideals and a touch humor into a unique mixture of progressive rock. Plenty of flute or sax or both can be heard weaving in and out of the varied organ and piano. Influences from FRANK ZAPPA & THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION, some WIGWAM (lots of organ) and from THE SOFT MACHINE (especially from the time when THE SOFT MACHINE was a trio) can be heard.

"Present From Nancy" (1971) is a incredible debut-album featuring greats tracks, lots of flute and distorbed organ and a vocalist who sounds quite a bit like Richard SINCLAIR. "Present from Nancy" and "To the Highest Ridder" are generally the recommended starting places and work your way forward. One of the absolutely best groups from the Dutch progressive rock scene.

Patric Moraz - The Story of I (1976) Reup

Hoje recebi um pedido especial, era este disco, ai parei e pensei: Porque não pensei nisso antes!!! Este álbum é espetacular, lembro que comprei logo que saiu e fiquei apaixonada, ele morou na pick-up esquerda por um tempão, pra você Didier, abraço! Obrigada pela lembrança

Observação o disco é tão bom que publiquei no discos fundamentais também é o primeiro álbum solo da carreira de Patrick, alias um dos seus melhores trabalhos, adoro este disco, acho que foi uma sacada de mestre a introdução de elementos afro-brasileiros no álbum, o disco tem um clima bastante interessante e foi na época uma novidade sonora pra mim, mesmo acostumada a muitos discos de progressivo ousados e com elementos bastante diferentes, apaixonei neste álbum e ele passou um longo periodo em uma de minhas pick-ups (tinha duas na época, adorava mixar minhas gravações em fitas cassetes, o que fazia de mim a dj da hora entre os amigos, hehehe!!). Disco recomendadissimo!´Retirado da publicação original aqui no blog.
