Song No. 44 — Saudade Vem Correndo | Luiz Bonfá & Maria Helena Tolédo (1961)

Rosana Tolédo - Sorriso e Lágrima (1961) a

Saudade Vem Correndo was introduced in 1961 by Rosana Tolédo on her album Sorriso e Lágrima. Also issued on single as A-side to Santo Antônio é Que é Santo by Ary Lobo, the song failed to have notable impact on the charts. However, it was one of the few original songs that Rosana Tolédo had been offered, and with a swinging arrangement by Nelson Martins dos Santos aka Nelsinho it was featured as the first of four uptempo songs on her debut album.

Maria Helena TolédoApart from the original version, Saudade Vem Correndo was recorded only on albums by Luiz Bonfá himself. The first time on his collaboration album with Caterina Valente which was recorded in Hamburg on two days in January 1963.

The next month, Rosana Tolédo’s sister Maria Helena Tolédo, wife of Luiz Bonfá at the time, recorded the song on Jazz Samba Encore!, which was subtitled Apresentando Maria Helena Tolédo and featured her as the first Brazilian singer to record with Stan Getz.

Later that year, Luiz Bonfá recorded a solo version on his album Recado Novo de Luiz Bonfá, arranged by Ribamar.

  1. Sorry, typed my comment too fast. The song by The Pharcyde, “Runnin'”, produced by Jay Dee. The hip hop producer Jay Dee has developed a cult following among older fans since he died in 2006. His fans track every song he produced and every sample source like its the bible, including a few Brazilian ones. Jay Dee even went to Brasil a year before he died. “Runnin'” has a wikipedia page with a list of uses and remakes.

    1. You’re right, it’s Stan Getz’ version that was sampled. Frankly, I wouldn’t have recognized it, even if I’d knew “Runnin’” but that’s probably because I’m not exactly familiar with hip hop…
      Thanks
