Brazil-castro.jpgEnglish-castro.jpg

In Ruy Castro's book "Bossa Nova", this is said regarding this record:
". . .the record was expensive to produce; after being orchestrated and arranged for the several voices that Tom and Billy had in mind, 'Sinfonia' ended up being at least fifteen minutes long and had to be recorded on a long-play. Long-plays, even the small ten-inch ones, were luxury items in Brazil, so much so that only music that was guaranteed a good return was recorded on them.

The original ten-inch LP of 'Sinfonia do Rio de Janeiro' is today an almost priceless collector's item, mainly because it was a resounding failure. [. . .] The entire symphony, with the vocals from that cast, took up the whole of side A; side B bore an instrumental version of the piece, with Gnatalli's quintet. It was truly a great record, but none of the songs ('Arpoador', 'Noites do Rio', 'O samba de amanhã', 'Hino ao sol' and 'Descendo o Morro') were successes or even survived independently, except in local gatherings, where small amateur groups (like that of Castro-Neves brothers, in Laranjeiras) used them as jazz themes."
