Trio Esperanca

Trio Esperanca

Female Vocal Jazz Trio from Rio de Janeiro, BR, Brazil.

The history goes way back. When small Correa, even if small, were a scene of a box and a stick a microphone in the back yard family in the neighborhood of Gavea in Rio, imitating their three older brothers, whose group " Golden Boys "beat the records of the public hearing of the" Jovem Guarda "version of Brazil yeyes. To so and so, the singer, Eva and Regina eventually blow an idea to Roberto, the eldest of the family: why do not they would form a group too. There was still a little brother available, Mario.

Thus was born the Trio Esperanca, in the 60s. Body and brush remaining available to the baby of the tribe, Mariza .... waiting for better days, she could barely speak but sang like a lark. The Trio's first album. "Menino do Amendoim" goes unnoticed, the second "Filme Triste" true compilation of Portuguese international hits of the time (Like a Bridge Over Trouble Water has, Down Town, Gorgy Girl ...) is a triumph. Trio Esperanca followed suit with "Golden Boys". Suddenly, Dad Correa decides it is time to take care of her smala and exchange office to the bank to that of manager.

Between scenes, festivals, TV shows, studios and schools - "We went from two concerts ..." - Three kids accumulate tubes and success. Principal soloist of the Trio, Eva eventually leave to lead a solo career under close surveillance of his brother and composer, Renato. Mariza, little bow in her hair, white socks, black patent leather ballet flats, and already two 45s solo for children under his belt, replaces Trio Esperanca in this second version. "Casaco Marrom," the first solo album of Eva, the whole of Brazil tenderly called by a diminutive Evinha, place on top of local charts on the right taking the podium at the Festival International de la Chanson Populaire at Maracanazinho in Rio where she is crowned "Best Performer" in front of Julie London and its famous "Cry Me A River," Anthony Adamo, Rika Zarai already highly magnetic time, and other international celebrities.

The discs follow, spurred by success. Stakhanovists in the song, the three sisters furnish their idle time by the choirs of everything that moves and has a great name: (Gilberto Gil, Milton Nascimento, Caetano Veloso, Maria Bethania, Gal Costa, Ivan Lins, Roberto Carlos ...). The 70s are coming to an end when Paul Mauriat, Brazil to record "A Grande Orquestra Paul Mauriat" application therefor "best singers" in place to participate in recording this album and tour to follow. Its conductor, Gerard Gambus then takes care of changing the course of this history by marrying Evinha ... who comes to live in France. The 80 are in full swing, Mariza, in turn marries a french and also moved to Paris. The trio disbanded. Endow a veterinary degree and a BA in English, Mario is now dedicated to animal health and education. Regina remained in Rio, connects the studio sessions: vocals, jingles, commercials.

Three months a year, the three sisters find themselves on tour with Paul Mauriat. It's short for those who love to sing so much! In 88, rings Eva recall and reform, with Mariza and Regina, Trio Esperanca, third incarnation, under the artistic direction of Gerard Gambus. That record-eaters fire in Paris, where they occur, in the 89 Bernard Lavilliers discovers and commits them. So. Regina came to Europe for three months, no more restarts. For a year they run with it and stand out on this occasion, by Patrick Bruel, who asked to participate in its own tours. It was at this time that Mick Lanaro, Bruel producer and production manager of Phonogram (now Universal since), offers them a contract with Major. Result? "A Capela Do Brasil", "Segundo", "Nosso Mundo", "preferidas, more than 500,000 albums sold and hundreds of concerts around the world.

In 2002, an overload of various concerts and promotions made them realize that it is time to pause and relax. Each share of his side, away from the show business so stressful. They make many trips to Brazil, but eventually, singing and being onstage ... is their life. Eva starts to solo concerts in Brazil, then recalls, in 2007, her sisters and her brother Mario, they re-formed the famous trio, first draft and make a new triumph in Rio. Also in 2007, and for the first time the whole family will occur on a large stage in Rio event as 7 brothers and sisters, all celebrated on the same stage is unique. A DVD of the show is released in late 2008. This was also the year of their return to France with their participation in the tour "50 years of Bossa Nova" and a collaboration with Christian Pegand Productions / Blue Lemon for new adventures that we'll talk .... very soon

Trio Esperanca : A Capela Do Brasil

Again, another CD only available as an import, this Brazilian female Trio (accompanied by special guests) sings, we would presume, in Portugese, though it seems that at least one of the tracks is in Spanish, and "La Vie En Rose" is in French. Cosmopolitan, no? Employing reknowned Brazilian musicians and songwriters such as Gilberto Gil, Ivan Lins and Djavan (who also worked with the Manhattan Transfer on their "Brasil" CD), their sound melds adult contemporary pop and jazz. Occasionally accompanied ("Coisa Feita" has flamenco guitar, as an example), many of the nineteen songs are uptempo; when the pace slows, as it does on "Rua Ramalhate," with its reverberated vocal sound and dynamic shifts, the momentum only increases. Their intonation and blend is tight and in-the-pocket, without a hair out of place. This Trio will add a welcome zest to your collection.

Songlist: Aquarela do Brasil, Casaco Marrom, O Pato, Qualquer Coisa, Aquele Um, La Vie En Rose, Corcovado, Coisa Feita, Comecar de Novo, De Passagem, Gold Heranca, Watashi (sapporo 76), Rua Ramalhete, Expresso 2222, O Que Sera ( a Flor da pele), Conversa de Botequim, Toada, San Vicente, Deixa Isso Pra La

Trio Esperanca : Preferidas

Like finding a twenty in the pocket of the pastel jacket we last wore to Mardi Gras, this 4th CD from the unforgettable trio of Brazilian beauties is a welcome, unexpected, Latin-flavored joy! For three women who look so good, and so happy, in the pix in the liner notes to be blessed with their almost surreal voices and perfect intonation seems almost too much. We were blown away by their previous three CDs, and "Preferidas" is a "best of" CD, the only three titles not on the previous three being "Carinhoso," "Garota de Ipanema" and "La Femme," sung as a "duo avec Michel Fugain" (the liner notes are lovely, but all in Portuguese). Fair enough, but how would you pick the songs to leave out? There are 17 songs here, most in Portuguese; and your occasional tune in Spanish or French, like the amazing "La Vie en Rose," and "Watashi," sung in tight, perfect Japanese. A few songs are accompanied, like "Que Nem Gilo," which features a marvelous salsa band. Included are "Berimbau," "A Felicidade," "Aguas de Marco," one of our favorites, "Garota de Ipanema" (Girl from Ipanema), the accompanied French love song "O Femme"...listen, you just have to put this in the boombox, lie back and slap some headphones on, or put it in the really good sound system in your car and go for a long drive in the country. If you don't believe your ears, hit replay! Highly recommended.

Songlist: Aquarela do Brasil, O Pato, La Vie en Rose, Corcovado, Que Nem Gilo, Rua Ramalhete, Lanca Perfume, Carinhoso, Watashi, Aquas de Marco, O Femme (En Duo Avec Michel Fugain), Garota de Ipanema, Berimbau, A Felicidade, Agua de Beber, To Nem Ligando, De Passagem

Trio Esperanca : Segundo

Can we possibly stand more wonderful music from the three Brazilian sirens who call themselves Trio Esperanca? Segundo, we believe, means "Second", and as there are two excellent CDs already gracing our catalog, perhaps this one was released out of order. 17 songs, most sung in Portuguese, at least one, "Mar e Lua," in Spanish, one in French ("La Lune est Morte," and one, amazingly, in English, Stevie Wonder's lovely "Come Back as a Flower." There is some light percussion, piano and guitar accompaniment on a few songs, but they only add to the enjoyment. We have never heard such perfect intonation-these women truly sing as one, and their one song in (perfect) English left us breathless. Our second favorite is "Garote de Ipanema," "The Girl from Ipanema" in Portuguese-incredible. Too much good stuff. Import.

Songlist: Noitre, Lanca Perfume, Aguas de Marco, To Nem Ligando, Come Back as a Flower, Ponto de Macumba, Garota de I, Panema, Sebastiana, Mar e Lua, Samba de Uma Nota, So, La Lune est Morte, A Felicidade, Pra La, Pra Ca, Na Baixa do Sapateiro, Ponto de Macumba, Isso e Brasil, Rua Augusta
