The Latin Rhodes Thread
« on: February 06, 2010, 09:06:13 AM »
Ok, here we go again. This thread is dedicated to the Latin Rhodes players, that is, to the players that play a Latin kind of sound (bossa nova, cuban jazz, etc.), whether they're actually from South/Central America or not.

In the blue forum, we had quite a few names, already. I'll try to keep this first post updated with a list of the albums and Youtube videos suggested in this thread.

Let's have some fun. :)

------------

You're welcome, Simon. Thank you for the great work you've been doing; your blog is a wonderful source for anyone interested in Rhodes pianos.

Haven't you had any problems with Google because of copyrights?

Keep on the good work. :)

Btw. I guess you never know if the players themselves are hanging around this forum.

I'm glad to see this thread picked-up again.  I remember how resourceful it was on the old blue forum.
As to that Elis and Tom album, a special mention should be made regarding the fabulous Rhodes parts played by the extremely tasteful and musical Cesar Camargo Mariano (Elis' husband, by the way).  Track 3 ("So Tinha De Ser Com Voce"), and track 9 ("Brigas, Nunca Mais") are both excellent examples of his mastery of the instrument as well as his excellent arrangement abilities. 
Also, since this was recorded in Los Angeles in 1974, the Rhodes is probably a Mark I suitcase that was tuned and voiced to a fine sheen by the inimitable Eddie Reynolds (the resident Fender Rhodes master during those heady days).

I think it is admirable that Marcos Valle (with nearly 70 years!) is still touring with a real Rhodes piano around the world. I had the opportunity to see him live on his last tour. His direct and dry Rhodes sound was awesome. No tricks and no gimmicks, just a raw Rhodes!
