Maria João, Mário Laginha, 10 November 2001

Maria João (voice), Mário Laginha (piano), Toninho Ferragutti (accordion), Helge Norbakken (drums and percussion): collectively known as "Mumadji"
London Jazz Festival + Atlantic Waves 2001
Purcell Room
Saturday, 10th November, 2001

Part One
01 introduction for BBC World Service "Jazzmatazz" (Alan Shipton)
02 em tão pouco tempo escureceu tanto
03 preto e branco
04 um choro feliz
05 asa branca
06 announcements & band credits
07 há gente aqui
08 un amor

There was a short break here to change tapes. I think I have only lost some applause. I have kept the two halves as separate files for the benefit of those wishing to burn to CD.

Part Two
09 várias danças
10 applause "more, more" etc.
11 a lua partida meio
Re-up of Part 3

Excerpts from the concert, including an interview with Maria and Mário, were broadcast on the BBC World Service on 24 November 2001.

The sound quality is quite poor - even by my fairly undemanding standards. The BBC World Service is aimed primarily at overseas listeners and reception in the UK can leave something to be desired.

01 introduction - Alan Shipton
02 em tão pouco tempo escureceu tanto
03 preto e branco
04 Alan Shipton interviews Maria João and Mário Laginha
05 um choro feliz
06 closing announcements over "a lua partida meio"

That is all I have from Maria - until she visits England again.

Hi, Phil,
I literally stumbled upon your blog when I was looking for some info on the Mumadji CD by Maria João. I was extremely pleased to see that you had a bootleg and I immediately started downloading. My joy came to an abrupt end when I got the message that part 3 'could not be found'.
Is there any chance of getting that last part back up?
I would be ever so pleased, sort of like the cat that's got the cream.

Thanks for the "heads up". I don't know how that happened. I have re-upped it. Enjoy.

Thanks for your quick reply and re-up.
I wish all bloggers were like this.
