Hello, good evening! The albums recorded by Doris Monteiro and Miltinho are among the most requested by our community. They are part of a series called Doris, Miltinho e Charme, with the first being released in 1970, until the last and fourth in 1973. I believe these albums are difficult to find, since it is the first from the series I’m proud to have. I never heard about a single album from this series being released on CD, these albums are really challenging, even if you not a regular Samba listener. Let’s see.

This is Doris Monteiro e Miltinho – Doris, Miltinho e Charme, Vol. 3 (1972), for Odeon, featuring arrangements by Maestro Nelsinho, which is always a guarantee of nice trombone playing and arrangements on top of Samba. I think this third volume is the better than the other two we have already at Loronix, it is better produced, recorded with this truly amazing cover artwork. Maestro Lindolpho Gaya is in charge of music direction, such as many Odeon releases from the early 70’s. Tracks include eighteen songs organized at seven medleys. Tracks include:


01 – Rio-samba (Cezão / Pedro Rainho) Minha Escola (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia) Sinfonia do Carnaval (Helena de Lima / Concessa Lacerda) Poeira (Telemar / Cléo)
02 – Mas Que Doidice (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi) Até Eu (Baden Powell / Paulo César Pinheiro)
03 – O Amor e a Rosa (Pernambuco / Antônio Maria) Guardei a Rosa (Pernambuco)
04 – Testamento (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes) A Vida dos Outros (Antônio Valentim) Dizem Por Aí (Manoel da Conceição / Alberto Paz) Cuidado Com o Andor (Mário Lago / Marino Pinto) Poeira (Telemar / Cléo)
05 – Diz Que Sim (Luis Antônio) Com o Amor Não Se Brinca (Carlito / Romeo Nunes)
06 – Doce Lembrança (Carlito / Waldemar Gomes) Deixa (Vinicius de Moraes / Baden Powell)
07 – Aquele Seu Adeus (Aloísio Marins / José Augusto)

Irany Pinto - Sambas Em Surdina

Hello, good evening! I cannot remember a busy and great week such as this one at Loronix. We had many events and a LOT of work. We had an important milestone reaching 3 million page views. Our funding campaign was also an extraordinary event. Loronix community could gather a considerable amount of money to purchase a dedicated server. I thought that it would take 20 days to accomplish our target and in only 2 days our goal was reached.

Your response brings a great responsibility, and I decided to give a immediate response, putting the server in action in only two days. Actually, there were four days of intensive work, two days setting up the entire server and two days preparing our new website, Loronix Happy Hour, so far a great success, with over 150 subscriptions from several countries.

The greatest Happy Hour functionality is the availability of the last Loronix day with no Rapidshare, making things much easier for those who follow Loronix on a daily basis.

Well, I spoke a lot, but I did not say how much I am satisfied with Loronix and the community that was created around the website. Thank you.

This is Irany Pinto e Seu Conjunto – Sambas em Surdina (1959), for Odeon, featuring the Brazilian violinist Irany Pinto, a true legend, such as Fafa Lemos. Irany Pinto was active on recordings, releasing more than 20 LPs between the late 50’s until the 70’s. Musicians in this session were not credited by Odeon. Remember that Sambas em Surdina will be available with no Rapidshare at Loronix Happy Hour until tomorrow. Tracks include:

01 – Feitico da Vila (Noel Rosa / Vadico)
02 – Caminhemos (Herivelto Martins)
03 – No Rancho Fundo (Lamartine Babo / Ary Barroso)
04 – Eu Nao Existo Sem Voce (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – Copacabana (Joao de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
06 – Minha Prece (Haroldo Eiras / Ciro V. Cunha)
07 – Castigo (Dolores Duran)
08 – Molambo (Jaime Florence “Meira” / Augusto Mesquita)
09 – Ouca (Maysa)
10 – Balada Triste (Dalton Vogeler / Esdras Pereira da Silva)
11 – Sempre Teu (Jose Maria de Abreu / Jair Amorim)
12 – Pra Esquecer (Noel Rosa)

Baden Powell & Cantores Da Lapinha, Os - As Músicas De Baden Powell E Paulo C Pinheiro

What a day! I’m tired and my eyes hurt, but I cannot finish this great day without music at Loronix. I’m tired and I need to be really straightforward this time. This is Baden Powell and Paulo Cesar Pinheiro performing their compositions with a vocal group called Os Cantores da Lapinha, which is probably a temporary group assembled only for this recording session. By the way, another nice Jorge Mello’s contribution, waited for many friends at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Baden Powell e Paulo Cesar Pinheiro – As Musicas de Baden Powell e Paulo Cesar Pinheiro | Os Cantores da Lapinha (1970), for Elenco. Os Cantores da Lapinha is a solid Samba LP with Baden Powell singing. You will not find instrumental tracks. My highlight goes to 07 – Falei e Disse (Baden Powell / Paulo Cesar Pinheiro), which is also my choice to Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:

01 – Aviso aos Navegantes (Baden Powell / Paulo Cesar Pinheiro)

Hello, good evening! Let’s update one of the albums that I like most, released a long time ago at Loronix, precisely, January 15th. I could never understand why people did not comment this one. Perhaps this minimalistic black and white Philips cover did not gather our community attention or the music was not well transferred. Anyway, I’m happy to bring Show de Bossa to the spotlight again, the transfer is much better and the missing back cover is now available. Let’s see.

This Corisco e Os Sambaloucos – Show de Bossa (1963), for Philips. Corisco e Os Sambaloucos is lead by Waldemar Marchetti, a Brazilian percussionist very active in the 60’s, releasing with Corisco e Os Sambaloucos more than five albums. Corisco always brings top-notch musicians to his recording sessions and Show de Bossa is not different, featuring Hamilton Godoy (the legendary Zimbo Trio pianist), Heraldo do Monte (guitar), Xu (bass) and others. Tracks include:


Waldemar Marchetti

Hamilton Godoy
Manoel Luis Viana “Xu”
Heraldo do Monte
Dirceu Simoes de Medeiros

Before making my comments on this surprising Flora Purim album, I would like to talk about the beautiful, immediate and solid response to our new dedicated server campaign. The power of the community created around Loronix cannot be measured, it is something that I never saw and surprises me every day. This makes me realize the importance of Loronix in disseminating the music from Brazil and the great responsibility that comes by leading and developing this place. Thank you for everything and I hope we will have a good start of week with Flora Purim. Let’s see.This is Flora Purim – Nothing Will Be As It Was… Tomorrow (1979), for Milestone, featuring Flora Purim performing a blend of Brazilian and International tunes, backed by a constellation of musicians, including Airto Moreira, the Fattoruso brothers, Wagner Tiso, Toninho Horta, Raulzinho, among many others. Nothing Will be as it Was is the album title and the second track, which a version of the well known Nada Sera como Antes (Milton Nascimento / Ronaldo Bastos). Loronix Preview Center selection was not easy since we have solid tracks different from each other. I decided to stay with Angels, which is from now on one of zecalouro lifetime favorites. You will understand when hearing. Tracks include:

01 – You Love Me Only (P. Rushen)
02 – Nothing Will Be as It Was (Nada Será Como Antes) (Milton Nascimento / Ronaldo Bastos / Vrs. Renne Vince)

Zezé Gonzaga - Canção Do Amor Distante

Hello, good evening! I felt very frustrated all over the day for not gathering the energy needed to make a full tribute to Zeze Gonzaga yesterday night, providing the second album sent by Mr. E. People say here in Brazil that Gonzaga Zeze the night of yesterday, providing the second disc sent by Mr. E.. By the way, there is a saying here in Brazil, a fairly common phrase, called “Há males, que vem para o bem”, which something like — there are problems that comes to the well – defining wrong moments as something capable of creating future benefits. It was exactly what happened, Mr. E. found an awesome Zeze Gonzaga interview at Página da Música, where Zeze Gonzaga talks about her career and this great disc, made available with great enthusiasm. Let’s see.

This is Zeze Gonzaga – Cancao do Amor Distante (1967), for Philips, as explained yesterday, the last album recorded by Zeze Gonzaga before her 23 years retirement from his artistic career, featuring arrangements by Maestro Lyrio Panicalli and Lindolpho Gaya, which is information brought by Mr. E. via Zeze Gonzaga interview at Pagina da Musica. Such as Zeze Gonzaga album with Quinteto de Radames Gnattali, Cancao do Amor Distante is a truly amazing album that you cannot miss. Tracks include:

01 – Sorri (Zé Keti / Élton Medeiros)
02 – Faça-me o Favor (João Leal Brito ”Britinho” / Fernando César)
03 – Veja Lá (Baden Powell / Luis Fernando Freire)
04 – Mensagem de Esperança (Jacobina / Gabriel Pessanha)
05 – Não Fique Triste Não (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
06 – Eu Chorei (Edmundo Maciel / Romeo Nunes)
07 – Canção do Amor Distante (Romeo Nunes / João Mello)
08 – Chuva (Durval Ferreira / Pedro Camargo)
09 – Além do Amor (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)

Zeze Gonzaga & Quinteto de Radames Gnattali – Valzinho, Um Doce Veneno (1979) Zeze Gonzaga Tribute

Link original: Zeze Gonzaga & Quinteto de Radames Gnattali – Valzinho, Um Doce Veneno (1979) Zeze Gonzaga Tribute
Publicado em: Friday, July 25, 2008 by zecalouro


I’m sad to announce the passing of a very important Brazilian singer, Zeze Gonzaga, who died today, 24 July 2008, in the city of Rio de Janeiro. This is Loronix tribute to Zeze Gonzaga, made by one of her most passionate fans, Mr. E., the great collaborator that introduced Zeze Gonzaga to our community.

Mr. E. sent us two albums, the third Zeze Gonzaga LP, Cancao do Amor Distante, recorded in 1967 and Valzinho, Um Doce Veneno, the fourth, recorded in 1979, after a hiatus of 23 years. Mr. E. said she was disappointed with the treatment Philips gave to her fourth album, deciding to terminate the career and open his own business, a school child. Mr. E. also sent a great article written by Aramis Millarch, reviewing Zeze Gonzaga fourth album, a tribute to Valzinho, featuring Quinteto de Radames Gnattali.

This is Zeze Gonzaga – Valzinho, Um Doce Veneno (1979), for MIS, a tribute to Valzinho, a very underrated composer and musician, featuring Radames Gnattali Quinteto, including Ze Menezes, Chiquinho do Acordeon, Vidal and the legendary Luciano Perrone. Herminio de Carvalho is in charge of production, delivering a very nice album that everybody should take it for a listen. Tracks include:



Zeze Gonzaga

Radames Gnattali
(piano, arrangements)

Ze Menezes

Luciano Perrone

Vidal and Chiquinho do Acordeon
(bass and accordion)

Aramis Millarch writing:

Em janeiro de 1979, Curitiba passou a ter um jardim de infância a menos, mas a música popular recuperou, em termos profissionais, a cantora que é adjetivada como “a voz mais afinada do Brasil”: Zezé Gonzaga. Doze anos após ter deixado a Rádio Nacional e após trabalhar (entre 1966 e 67) como jinglista, Maria José Gonzaga (mineira de Manhuaçu, 03/09/1926) tinha decidido por uma vida tranqüila na capital paranaense, onde inaugurou uma escola. Não pensava mais em voltar a gravar: desgostosa com os aborrecimentos que teve na Philips com seu último LP – Canção do amor distante, que levou dois anos para ser lançado – nada animava Zezé a pensar em música em termos profissionais.

Desde 1951, quando fez o seu primeiro 78 rpm, gravou mais de cem músicas, mas raras vezes teve a oportunidade de escolher o repertório – quase sempre formado por versões das mais indignas. E estes fatos fizeram com que Zezé, apesar de ser classificada como “a cantora dos maestros” – por sua afinação extraordinária, embora nunca tenha tido uma única aula de canto – tivesse optado por uma voluntária renúncia artística. E teria ficado em Curitiba, se Hermínio Bello de Carvalho não a tivesse convencido a entrar novamente num estúdio, para fazer um LP. Para tanto, houve alguns argumentos irrecusáveis: um repertório formado exclusivamente por um dos mais injustiçados (e esquecidos) compositores brasileiros – Valzinho (Norival Carlos Teixeira, carioca do bairro do Irajá, 25/12/1914). E os arranjos e participação do maestro e pianista Radamés Gnatalli e quinteto.

O resultado é que, gravado em apenas três dias em janeiro de 79, Valzinho, um Doce Veneno acabou sendo lançado às vésperas do Carnaval, quando Zezé ainda estava em Curitiba, tratando de encerrar as atividades de sua escola. Trata-se de um disco não apenas absolutamente histórico, por marcar o retorno de uma das mais belas vozes do Brasil, amparada no extraordinário quinteto de Radamés Gnatalli, mas que praticamente vem revelar canções de um compositor que permanecia no mais absoluto anonimato. Pois, se Emilinha Borba e sua irmã Nena Robledo, há mais de quarenta anos, já divulgavam “Doce veneno”, só recentemente esta música chegou a interessar uma cantora como Maria Creuza, que a escolheu para título de seu último LP pela RCA. Cantores como Orlando Silva, Paulinho da Viola e Macalé também gravaram músicas de Valzinho.

Mesmo assim, o que explica que um compositor de tanta inspiração e harmonias tão avançadas, e podendo ser classificado na pré-história da bossa nova, tenha permanecido anônimo por tantos anos? Suas harmonias, difíceis mas belas, eram curtidas por vocalistas sensíveis, mas sua timidez, espírito boêmio e total despreocupação material fizeram com que Valzinho nunca se preocupasse com o registro de suas músicas.

Mas, agora, esse disco vem provar uma série de verdades: Zezé Gonzaga continua a ter uma belíssima voz; Radamés Gnatalli e quinteto formam uma unidade especialíssima, que infelizmente só mesmo em ocasiões como esta pode se reunir; e Valzinho é o exemplo do talento que morreria esquecido se não houvesse garimpeiros como Hermínio Bello de Carvalho.

Publicado em: Wednesday, July 23, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! Today we will make a required upgrade on a very important Dolores Duran tribute LP recorded by Lucio Alves in 1960. Several tributes were made since Dolores Duran passing in 1959, and I’m sure this one is my favorite. Lucio Alves is backed by a dream team, delivering his unique interpretation and also putting his heart on each tune. If you are new to Dolores Duran or Lucio Alves, this is a perfect start. You cannot miss. Let’s see.

This is Lucio Alves – … Interpreta Dolores Duran (1960), for Odeon, presented here by the 1975 Coronado Odeon reissue. Personnel listing changes on each reissue and I’m presenting here the one I think is the corrected one, informed by the legendary Aramis Millarch liner notes, made available below and also inside the music. Personnel listing features Baden Powell, Luiz Carlos Vinhas, Chiquinho do Acordeon, Ed Lincoln (playing bass), among others. Tracks include:


Luiz Carlos Vinhas
Chiquinho do Acordeon
Baden Powell
Ed Lincoln, Gabriel


Aramis Millarch Liner Notes

Quando Aloysio de Oliveira convidou Lúcio Alves para gravar o lp “A Noite de Meu Bem, a grande Dolores Duran (Aliléia Silva da Rocha, 7 de julho de 1930-24 de outubro de 1959) havia falecido há poucas semanas. Lúcio não só doou à mãe de Dolores, dona Josefa Silva da Rocha, a renda que teria direito como intérprete, mas, principalmente, deu de si, a interpretação mais sensível, de maior feeling, à maravilhosa obra de Dolores.

Para Lúcio Ciribelli Alves, mineiro de Cataguazes, do dia 28 de janeiro de 1925, a música de Dolores Duran sempre foi muito especial e significativa. Junto com Dick Farney e Johnny Alf, Lúcio é daquela geração de precursores na renovação de nossa música popular, que só viria eclodir em fins de 1958, com o rótulo de Bossa Nova. Lúcio sempre procurou um estilo moderno de interpretação, já no seu início como profissional, no distante ano de 1941, quando formou o historicamente importante grupo “Os Namorados da Lua”. Como compositor, com Haroldo Barbosa, criava em 1943, a marcante “De Conversa em Conversa”, até hoje, em nossa opinião, uma das músicas mais perfeitas de nosso cancioneiro.

Lúcio foi sempre um cantor Bossa Nova e por isso seu grande amigo e produtor Aloysio de Oliveira tinha toda razão, ao escrever na contracapa do lp “A Noite de Meu Bem”, agora, em boa hora reeditado, que “na verdade Lúcio Alves foi um dos grandes iniciadores da nova escola. Entretanto na ocasião não havia ainda receptividade, atmosfera adequada para uma forma de expressão que só mais tarde iria ser descoberta”.

Gravado com amor, emoção e razão, as 12 faixas deste elepe permanecerão enquanto houver sensibilidade nas pessoas. À voz personalíssima de Lúcio Alves soma-se ao talento de um grupo de excelentes instrumentistas — pianista Luis Carlos Vinhas, acordeonista Chiquinho, violonista Baden Powell, baterista Juquinha e baixistas Gabriel e Ed Lincoln — na interpretação dos sambas-canções de Dolores, alguns em parceria com seus amigos Ribamar, Edison Borges, Antonio Carlos Jobim e o próprio Lúcio Alves (“Vou Chorar”), que, com emoção, diz as palavras que fazem com que nossos olhos umedeçam, lembrando Dolores, a moça que só queria a paz de criança dormindo.

Pois eu sei que prá sempre
Eu irei te lembrar
E por mais que eu não queira
Vou chorar

Track List

01 – Idéias Erradas (Dolores Duran / Ribamar)
02 – A Noite do Meu Bem (Dolores Duran)
03 – Estrada do Sol (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
04 – Castigo (Dolores Duran)
05 – Noite de Paz (Dolores Duran)
06 – Vou Chorar (Lúcio Alves / Dolores Duran)
07 – Por Causa de Você (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
08 – Fim de Caso (Dolores Duran)
09 – Pela Rua (Ribamar / Dolores Duran)
10 – Quem Sou Eu (Ribamar / Dolores Duran)

 Luiz Bonfa - Black Orpheus Impressions
Hello, good evening! It is very easy to realize the artists I like most. This is really a shame, neutrality is very important. However, it is very hard to keep preferences under control, especially when you like Brazilian music. Luiz Bonfa is one of my favorite artists and for reasons that I don’t understand, I never took this album for a careful listen, and now I know what I lost, since it was made available for the first time by a contribution from Cesar Saldanha. Let’s see.
This is Luiz Bonfa – Black Orpheus Impressions (1968), for Dot Records, released in Brazil by RGE, another fantastic Jorge Mello contribution. Personnel listing features the legendaries Eumir Deodato, Dom Um Romao and Ron Carter, including sweet vocals by Maria Helena Toledo in some tracks. Thanks once again Jorge Mello for this album that I never thought to be updated. Tracks include:

Luiz Bonfa

I spent the last hour working very hard on another amazing post sponsored by Jorge Mello, but in the last minute I found a problem, the transfer was not well done. It happens sometimes. Sleeping started his slow domination and the bed became a really good option. Then I remember this contribution sent by my mother and the messages I received with requests for new Para Dancar albums. Sleeping was cancelled, and I had to take an extra energy to bring this final Saturday post. Let’s see.

This is Andre Penazzi – Andre Penazzi e Suas Musicas para Dancas (1959), for Chantecler, featuring the Brazilian organist with orchestra on this very old and different Andre Penazzi from his Audio Fidelity albums recorded in the sixties. Actually, this is the first time I see Andre Penazzi, an artist that I never could find information about and it is very popular among vinyl collectors, especially outside Brazil. Tracks include:

01 – A Voz do Morro (Zé Keti)
02 – Chega de Saudade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Bom Dia Café (Victor Simon)

Cartola - 1979 - 70 Anos

Hello, good evening! Tomorrow is Saturday and it has been a long time since we made one of those Saturdays with full focus and dedication to good Samba music. I’m brand new to Cartola and each new record I get for a spin seems to be better than the last one. Cartola music is sublime and although he is not essentially a Samba singer, his interpretations are sweet and sometimes moving. Perhaps we cannot make a Samba Saturday tomorrow, but at least we will cross the whole day with one of the most acclaimed Brazilian Samba legends ever. Let’s see.
This is Cartola – Cartola 70 Anos (1979), for RCA, celebrating Cartola 70th Anniversary and featuring renowned Brazilian musicians. Maestro Nelsinho is in charge of the arrangements and you can see Nelsinho in the right, besides Haroldo Barbosa and Sergio Cabral. Cartola performs his own compositions, including Ciencia e Arte (Cartola / Carlos Cachaca), recorded for Escola de Samba Estacao Primeira de Mangueira in 1949 and not selected by Mangueira leaders to be the official song of Carnaval parade on that year. The selection of Loronix Preview Center track is always difficult with Cartola albums, so I decided to just take the first track, O Inverno de Meu Tempo (Cartola / Roberto Nascimento). Tracks include:



Maestro Nelsinho
(arrangements, trombone)
Sergio Carvalho
Abel Ferreira
(alto sax, clarinet)
(violao 7 cordas)
(violao, viola)
Wilson das Neves
Marcal, Luna, Eliseu, Gilberto, Cuscus

The only issue of a post made on such extraordinary time of the day is the lack of research. Little I know about this IV Festival Internacional da Cancao, except the nice performers we have inside and the nice tunes they perform. I don’t have idea if there is a whole Odeon series with all these Festival Internacional da Cancao concerts and if there are also albums featuring the international performers, not only the Brazilian artists. Let’s see.

This is IV Festival Internacional da Cancao (1969), for Odeon, featuring Brazilian performers, including two Samba divas performing Bossa Nova in their earlier years, Clara Nunes and Beth Carvalho, and important artists, such like Marcos Valle, Antonio Adolfo & A Brazuca, Taiguara, Eva, Goden Boys and the nice vocal group Quarteto Forma.

If you want to know more about the music of Festival da Cancao years, you cannot miss the website of my friend Marcia Weber, now featuring the whole story about the song Juliana, performed by Antonio Adolfo & A Brazuca. Marcia Weber Festivais da Cancao website is Tracks include:

Encantamento com Maria Helena Raposo

MariaHelenaRaposoHello, good evening! I saw this album for the first time at Jorge Mello’s place, and this is another amazing contribution sponsored by Jorge Mello. Actually, some Jorge Mello’s albums were selected by my feeling. I remember that day, a great day. It was a hot day and we were talking about many things such like two kids. While talking, I was also browsing Jorge Mello’s collection and making decisions. It was a challenge to keep the conversation and selecting the contributions. I admit that some of them were selected only by instinct; such like this one, but every selection I made with no detailed examination brought great surprises, such like this one. Let’s see.

This is Maria Helena Raposo – Encantamento com Maria Helena Raposo (1958), for the legendary label Mocambo, featuring the first and probably the only album recorded by the Brazilian singer Maria Helena Raposo, a classical singer making her initial steps towards the popular music. Actually, Maria Helena Raposo recorded a 78RPM at the same Mocambo in 1956. The repertoire features three Ary Barroso compositions, and the first recording of Estrada do Sol, written by Antonio Carlos Jobim in 1956 with lyrics by Dolores Duran in the end of the same year, a real treat for Antonio Carlos Jobim admirers, essentially, everybody. Estrada do Sol is available at Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:

01 – Prece (Marino Pinto / Vadico)
02 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)
03 – Estrada do Sol (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
04 – Ninguém (Flávio Cavalcanti / Celso Cavalcanti)
05 – Só Você (César Cruz / Silvinha Drumond)
06 – Se Todos Fossem Iguais a Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – Bebeco e Doca (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
08 – Antigamente (Vadico / Jarbas Melo)
09 – Portão Antigo (Antônio Maria)
10 – Nega Nhanhá (Ary Barroso)

Publicado em: Tuesday, July 15, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! Among the albums brought by my mother last week, this is certainly the most inquisitive one. Not only to be an album that I never heard before, but for the circumstances in which it was found. I have a mania to wonder what happened with these old albums until they arrive here. When it is found in Copacabana, for instance, it is easy to realize that it was part of a given collection sold to a record shop once the owner died or decided to get rid of them. But when it is found in a remote location, such like this one in the suburb of Rio de Janeiro, it is impossible to realize the path it took to get here. Anyway, I would like to have more time to visit these stores in the suburban area and try to reverse this course, perhaps a nice opportunity to find new friends and also great albums. Let’s see.

This is Fafa Lemos – Fafa Lemos e Seu Violino com Surdina (1955), for RCA Victor, featuring the legendary violinist, singer and why not, whistler Fafa Lemos at his best, performing a repertoire of his own compositions, Brazilian and international tunes. Fafa Lemos was part of the original formation of Trio Surdina with Garoto (violao) and Chiquinho do Acordeon (accordion). I’m not sure if Fafa Lemos was the first to introduce the violin to Brazilian popular music, but I’m sure Fafa Lemos is the musician that better made it. My highlight goes to 03 – Time Perna de Pau with lyrics sung by Fafa Lemos and 02 – Delicado, which is my pick at Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:

01 – Feitiço da Vila (Noel Rosa / Vadico)
02 – Delicado (Waldir Azevedo)
03 – Time Perna de Pau (Vicente Amar)
04 – Mil Violinos (Jay Livingston / Evans / De Liano)
05 – Dengoso (Renaud)
06 – Chão de Estrelas (Silvio Caldas / Orestes Barbosa)
07 – Giannina Mia (O. Harbach / R. Friml)
08 – Fafá Em Hollywood (Fafá Lemos)

Hello, good evening! We are having a sunny Sunday today, such like a summer day. I’m just back from a quick walking along the beach. I could not make it as planned since my feet still hurts when walking. I would like to share my good feelings about this nice Sunday with everybody presenting another great finding from my mother, which is Milton Banana Trio tribute to Vinicius de Moraes. Let’s see.

This is Milton Banana Trio – Ao Meu Amigo Vinicius | Samba e Isso Vol. 5 (1981), for RCA, featuring Milton Banana performing a repertoire based on Vinicius de Moraes music, the last out of five albums released under a series called “Ao Meu Amigo”, tribute albums to Milton Banana friends. Milton Banana delivers his unique drumming and sings in some tracks.

I would like to talk about this enchanting cover. It is the kind of cover they no longer make on the narrow CD space. Milton Banana is drinking in front of the legendary Garota de Ipanema, which is alleged to be the place where Garota de Ipanema tune was composed by Vinicius de Moraes and Antonio Carlos Jobim. There are several nice details, the empty chair in front of Milton, probably Vinicius de Moraes chair that passed away one year earlier, the girl of Ipanema itself on bikini, the urban sign indicating the restaurant address, Vinicius de Moraes with Prudente de Moraes street, the sun up showing the photo was taken in the middle of the day with Garota de Ipanema empty, anyway, it is the kind of cover that you spent a day running over each detail. Tracks include:

01 – O Morro Não Tem Vez (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes) Chega de Saudade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Se Todos Fossem Iguais a Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes) Minha Namorada (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)

Hello, good afternoon! I was making a website migration yesterday and decided to read a magazine while waiting for a DNS refresh.

I believe that many friends will not understand why the back cover has the spotlight instead of the front cover with Maria Creuza photo. There is a special reason, Vinicius de Moraes, who left this planet on July 09, 2008, exactly 28 years ago. It has been twenty-eight years without Vinicius de Moraes. I remember the day of his passing as it was yesterday. Vinicius de Moraes lives through his work and should live for many decades; he is one of the most important Brazilian popular music artists. Let’s see.

This is Maria Creuza – Poetico (1982), for RCA, a tribute to Vinicius de Moraes, featuring only Vinicius de Moraes compositions, performed by Maria Creuza, a singer strongly influenced by Vinicius de Moraes, with several albums released with Vinicius, including the legendary live performances available on recording, such as “La Fusa”, recorded in Argentina. Let’s celebrate and remember Vinicius de Moraes. Tracks include:

Luiz Alves, Zeca Assumpcao, Paulo Russo

Hello, good evening! This is the album were the last challenge with Jorge Ben and Copa Trio was taken, by the way, another mom’s contribution. I was not thinking about showing at Loronix, but when I took it again today to scan a page, I could see that two tracks are Jorge Ben backed by J.T. Meirelles e Os Copa 5 and a strange force moved my body towards the turntable for a spin. Thanks to the Loronix friend that asked for the second page scan, it is included. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira Nr. 8 (1970), for Abril Cultural, featuring Jorge Ben selected cuts performed by Jorge Ben, J.T. Meirelles e Os Copa 5, Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Maestro Rogerio Duprat, Os Originais do Samba, Trio Mocoto, Toquinho and Trio de Edison Machado, a constellation of Brazilian artists on a 10-inch album with a extended duration of almost 27 minutes running time. This is a really nice treat for a given Wednesday. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! Here we go on another contribution sent by my mother, strongly recommended by her. She also asked to release it in the beginning of this series and then alternate between Jorge Mello and her contributions. I think it is time to give Loronix control to her. Just kidding, it is a nice idea.

She is a big fan of Toquinho and Vinicius de Moraes, with some DVDs that she uses to spin very frequently, but mom said she got a little bit disappointed with this one, just for being an instrumental album, no lyrics and no singing. In the other hand, I’m really amazed with this one. Toquinho is mostly known as a singer and composer, but he is also a great instrumentalist, one of Paulinho Nogueira disciples. By the way, Toquinho has another instrumental only release at Loronix that you should not miss, here. Let’s see.

This is Toquinho – O Violao do Toquinho (1966), for RGE, featuring Toquinho violão accompanied by an unusual formation with drums, flute and organ played by Ely Arcoverde. I wish everybody a very productive and prosperous week. Tracks include:


Ely Arcoverde
Thommas Lee
Jose Roberto, Marco Antonio

Track List

01 – Marcha da Quarta-feira de Cinzas (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes) Sonho de Um Carnaval (Chico Buarque)

Caetano Veloso & Fagner - Disco De Bolso

I think that everybody remember when Loronix released a single with Antonio Carlos Jobim performing a very, let’s say, primitive Aguas de Marco. That album was the first release of a new magazine called Disco de Bolso, featuring a single with a well-now artist and a new artist on side B. The concept was excellent, but for reasons that I could not check, the magazine did not survive to the second edition, which is exactly what we have here, kindly sent by my Mother. Let’s see.

This is Disco de Bolso do Pasquim Numero 2 – Caetano Veloso e Fagner (1972), for Zen, featuring on side A Caetano Veloso, performing A Volta da Asa Branca, recorded live at Teatro Joao Caetano, Rio de Janeiro. Side B brings the new artist, Fagner, performing Mucuripe (Belchior / Fagner). Caetano Veloso does not have a support group, only his violao, while Fagner plays violao and is backed by Ivan Lins, playing organ. It is sad to know this magazine had such a short life. Both new artists (remember the first had Joao Bosco on side B) are now respected artists in Brazil. Tracks include:

01 – A Volta da Asa Branca (Luiz Gonzaga) with Caetano Veloso
02 – Mucuripe (Fagner / Belchior) with Fagner

Hello, good evening! I made a small surgery on my left feet this week and this is the reason why Loronix was not updated as usual. Additionally, my mother came to give assistance and make things more complicated as never with several recommendations, lots of things to eat and those really annoying mom’s questions about life that makes we feel really embarrassed.

Among the ups and downs of mom’s visit there is something really good, she is back to contributions and I want to start her small package with the one that we like most, which is the first LP recorded by the Brazilian bandolim virtuoso Deo Rian. Let’s see.

This is Deo Rian – Ernesto Nazareth, Solista: Deo Rian (1970), for RCA Vitor, featuring wonderful renditions of Ernesto Nazareth music played by Deo Rian bandolim with the accompaniment of Quinteto Villa Lobos, Dino 7 Cordas, Canhoto and a not credited strings quartet. This is a magnificent album, not only for the choro fans, but for everyone in the mood of listening Ernesto Nazareth beautiful melodies with really creative arrangements made by a not credited artist.

The back cover brings Deo Rian autography, dedicating this album to Sergio Bittencourt, which is Jacob do Bandolim son. My mother demands that I keep this album available to Deo Rian due this writing at the back cover, which is something that I totally agree. It will be a great pleasure to give this album to Deo Rian as a present from Loronix. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! This is the first out of a series of albums recorded by Jaime Alem and Nair Candia for CID, under a series named “Talento Brasileiro”. I think the first who spoke with me about this series was the might Mr. D&C, a long time ago. I confess that with no help from my friends I could never take these albums in consideration. The main performers are not credited at the front cover and it is necessary to go across the back cover to realize this is a career album of Jaime & Nair, which I did not know before taking this album. Jaime & Nair albums are sought after by many collectors, especially outside of Brazil. It is time to check what they have to offer. Let’s see.

This is Jaime Alem & Nair Candia – Serie Talento Brasileiro 4 – As Musicas de Tom Jobim (1978), for CID, featuring a repertoire of Antonio Carlos Jobim tunes. As Musicas de Tom Jobim work very nice as a perfect counterpoint to previous Loronix releases, mostly instrumentals. Jaime Alem is in charge of arrangements and Nair Candia for voice, delivered here by a chorus. It will be really important if you leave your feedback on this release, Jaime & Nair recorded other albums for CID in the same concept featuring tunes by Milton Nascimento, Chico Buarque and probably additional ones, not yet identified. Tracks include:


Jaime Alem
(arrangements, violao, viola, cavaquinho, bandolim)
Nair Candia
Carlos Rocha
(guitar, violão)
Jose Carlos
Nair Candia, Jurema, Chico Pupo, Marcos Candia, Aramis, Jaime Alem

Tamba Trio - 20 Anos De Sucesso-Back

Hello, good evening! Do not let the appearance cheats you such like I was when I saw this album for the first time. 20 Anos de Sucesso celebrates the 20th anniversary of one of the coolest Bossa Nova trios from the 60’s, Tamba Trio. What seems to be just a collection of Tamba Trio’s best tracks is in fact a career album featuring Luiz Eca, Bebeto and Helcio Milito revisiting previous released tracks and some never released before. In summary, Tamba Trio went to studio in 1982 to record 20 Anos de Sucesso, which is nice enough to make the day of Tamba Trio fans and casual listeners. Once again, I would like to thank Jorge Mello for another awesome finding. Let’s see.

This is Tamba Trio – 20 Anos de Sucessos (1982), for RCA Victor, celebrating Tamba Trio 20th anniversary, being the last Tamba Trio career LP. This is really unbelievable. Asa Branca and Lamento Negro were recorded live at Sonda 1999 night club, which is a place I never heard before, while the others were recorded in studio. I don’t want to bore you longer, stay with Tamba Trio and don’t forget to say “Thank You” to Jorge Mello on comments section for another great contribution. Tracks include:


Luiz Eca
(voice, piano)
(voice, flute, bass, alto sax)
Helcio Milito
(voice, drums, tamba)

Track List

01 – O Samba da Minha Terra (Dorival Caymmi)

Publicado em: Monday, June 30, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! We have today a celebration to a very special day, the anniversary of Garoto, Anibal Augusto Sardinha, which would complete 93 years today if had not passed so prematurely with the age of 39. This is an important date that may have been noticed by a very small number of Brazilians, among them Jorge Mello, who kindly makes available to us an important album featuring Garoto recordings retrieved from Radio Nacional acetates.

Additionally, Jorge Mello sent us a article written for the occasion, describing this album, the importance of Garoto to Brazilian music and a very important item taken from his personal collection, a page of Garoto diary, written by Garoto on the day of his 39th anniversary, the last birthday he had the chance to celebrate.

Thanks Jorge Mello for your kind words for Garoto. A translation to English is being provided as soon as possible.

Jorge Mello

CapaLPBackAnibal Augusto Sardinha nasceu na cidade de São Paulo em 29/06/1915. Nos seus quase quarenta anos de vida deixou uma obra de tirar o fôlego, tanto em quantidade como em qualidade (compôs pelo menos 220 músicas).

Destacou-se como multi-instrumentista, tocando com maestria o violão, bandolim, cavaquinho, violão tenor, guitarra havaiana, guitarra portuguesa e banjo. Tocava também violino, contrabaixo, violoncelo, piano e harpa, mas não se apresentava com os mesmos.

Escreveu inúmeras orquestrações e arranjos para os programas que fazia nas rádios. Uma parte significativa de sua vida artística foi passada na Rádio Nacional, atuando em programas como Um Milhão de Melodias, Música em Surdina, Nada além de Dois Minutos, Orquestra Melódica de Lyrio Panicali, Gente que Brilha, Canção Romântica, Quando Canta o Brasil e Noite de Estrelas, dentre outros.

Um Milhão de Melodias, cuja estréia se deu 6/01/1943, promoveu muitas inovações na parte técnica. A gravação dos ensaios, por exemplo, era feita em grandes discos de acetato com base de alumínio. Após estas gravações, as direções técnicas e artísticas do programa se reuniam para corrigir eventuais falhas como, por exemplo, o posicionamento dos microfones para a orquestra.

Estes discos possuíam características singulares: Eles giravam no sentido anti-horário e o braço da agulha (para a reprodução) ia do centro para a borda do disco. Eles são muito mais frágeis que um disco 78 RPM…

Outros programas da Rádio Nacional, como os citados linhas acima, passaram a usar este recurso. Estes discos vieram a ser a memória dos programas daquela emissora por um longo período.

Com a decadência da Nacional, o acervo desta emissora (incluindo estes discos de acetato, partituras para orquestras, catálogos, etc..) foi guardado em péssimas acomodações. “Paulo Tapajós encontrou os discos dos programas da Rádio Nacional jogados num dos banheiros da emissora e empilhados no corredor como coisa imprestável” (Trecho extraido do livro Rádio Nacional, o Brasil em Sintonia- Luiz Carlos Saroldi e Sonia Virginia Moreira). Não é difícil imaginar que muitos destes discos não tenham resistido a tanto descaso!

Em 1972 o que restou do acervo da Rádio Nacional foi transferido para o Museu da Imagem e do Som (MIS). Saroldi, em seu livro, diz que eram 40 mil discos, que ficaram inicialmente empilhados na sala mais tarde ocupada pelo acervo Jacob do Bandolim.

Em 1981 uma catástrofe! Um incêndio destruiu a sede do MIS. Mais uma remoção de todo acervo…

Paulo Tapajós, em 1979, extraiu daquele acervo as músicas que compõem este importante LP Garoto, lançado pelo MIS.

Conseguimos encontrar as datas em que algumas destas gravações,feitas no programa Um Milhão de Melodias, foram realizadas:

05 – Tico-tico no fubá, gravado em 29/11/1944 por Garoto (violão tenor) no centenário de apresentações daquele programa.
11 – Chinatown, my Chinatown, gravado em 12/07/1944.
12 – Chorinho do Ahú, gravado em 23/05/1945.
08 – Cavaquinho Boogie, gravado em 04/09/1952.

A música Duas Contas foi gravada no programa Música em Surdina em 11/06/1951.

Não saberia dizer a quantidade de discos de acetato que atualmente estão no MIS, assim como não sei em quantos destes, em bom estado de conservação, Garoto gravou como solista. Se soubesse quantos, poderia responder a pergunta: Quantos discos, tendo Garoto como solista, poderiam ser gravados?

Para deleite dos apreciadores deste fabuloso blog disponibilizo a página do diário de Garoto, escrita de próprio punho,em que ele comenta a festa de seu último aniversário, em 1954!

Abraços, Jorge Mello.

Obs: O Luizinho, mencionado na última linha do dia 30, é o Luiz Eça! Candinho é o pai da cantora Claudia Telles.

This is Garoto (1979), for MIS, featuring Anibal Augusto Sardinha recordings taken from Radio Nacional acetate disks. Garoto has the accompaniement of Lyrio Panicali, Patane, Radames Gnattali, Bola Sete, Luciano Perrone, Pedrinho Vieira and other not yet identified musicians. Tracks include:

Carlos Barbosa Lima – Concerto de Violao (1959)

Antonio Carlos Barbosa Lima - Concerto De Violão

Antonio Carlos Barbosa Lima - Concerto De Violão_2

Hello, good evening! I had a really busy day today. I worked without interruption throughout the day in meetings away from home and made a lot of things in my modest home office. It is interesting how things change over a single day. I had very difficult moments where I thought everything was lost. But from the beginning of the night, things changed for better and I can say I had a great day as a whole.

I arrived at home exhausted, spoke a bit with the zecalouro and listen with him this album recorded by Antonio Carlos Barbosa Lima, better known as Carlos Barbosa Lima, another privileged Brazilian violao player. Carlos Barbosa Lima began his studies at 7 years of age and formal education with the Uruguayan master Isaias Savio. He recorded his first album with only 12 years old, already available here at Loronix. This is the third album recorded by Carlos Barbosa Lima, with 15, another fine release sponsored by Jorge Mello. Let’s see.

This is Antonio Calos Barbosa Lima – Concerto de Violao (1959), for Chantecler. Despite having only 15 years old, Concerto de Violao is a classic guitar album recorded by a veteran. Carlos Barbosa Lima became a respected musician, making a transparent connection between classical and popular, spreading the works of important Brazilian musicians, such like Joao Pernambuco, Francisco Mignone, Catullo, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and many others. I hope this album brings much peace, as brought to me. Tracks include:

01 – Suite em Re Menor “Preludio, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Gavotte Menuet 1 y 2, Borree Giga” (Robert de Visee)
02 – Gavota (da suite Nr. 6 para violaocello) J. Sebastian Bach – version Carlos Barbosa Lima
03 – Preludio Nr. 1 da Serie “Suite a Antiga” (G. Santorsola)
04 – Dolor (Preludio Vasco) Padre San Sebastian
05 – Sevilla (I. Albeniz) version Llobet
06 – Valsa Venezuelana (A. Lauro)
07 – Valsa Choro (Camargo Guarnieri)
08 – Estudo Nr. 7 (Villa Lobos)
09 – Brasiliana Nr. 4 (Theodoro Nogueira)
10 – Sonha Yaya (Isaias Savio)

Bola Sete y Su Conjunto – Carnival in Rio (1958)

Bola Sete - Carnival in Rio (Bola Sete Em HI-Fi - Sinter)

Bola Sete - Carnival in Rio (Bola Sete Em HI-Fi - Sinter)_2

Hello, good evening! This is another fantastic contribution by Jorge Mello, featuring Bola Sete with a pretty obscure album. My searches were not successful tracking down this record. I’ve been at many discographies websites and even at Bola Sete official website. I even made a challenge at Loronix to get some information about Bola Sete and this group and could not gather additional info.

In a first sight, this lady seems to be Dolores Duran, but she isn’t Dolores Duran. She is credited as Therezinha Bittencourt, which is a singer that I never heard about and could not find a single mention on my searches. I’m afraid this is an unknown Bola Sete album for many. Let’s see.

This is Bola Sete, su Conjunto Tipico Brasilero y su Cantante Therezinha Bittencourt – Carnival in Rio (1958), for Puchito, which is a Spanish record company. The back cover brings a short description of Bola Sete early years with his Conjunto and says that Carnival in Rio was recorded in Spain, during Bola Sete European tour. The back cover also brings a “footnote” confirming Carnival in Rio was recorded in Spain, which is something that you can check at the slider below, followed by my translation to English from back cover liner notes. I would like to thanks Jorge Mello for another amazing album. Tracks include:

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Bola Sete showed his artistic skills since early childhood at the age of 7 years playing guitar, whose talent he inherited from his parents.

Bola Sete is very popular in Brazil. Just as throughout Europe and South America. It is exclusive artist of Radio Nacional in Rio de Janeiro. About three years ago, he organized a group, which is composed of Brazilians, and went into great artistic tour around the country. His first contract was at the Film Festival of Punta del Este, then in theaters in Buenos Aires, Radio Belgrano Sunset Club, where he was acclaimed for his great artistic talent. Then in Chile performed at the Waldorf; Grill in Peru in Bolivia, and throughout South America, achieving many laurels. Then they were touring Europe for artistic, and in Madrid have acted with great success in Parilla Rex. It was here where Montilla hired him to record the selections so ably interpreted in this album.

01 – Sonador
02 – Chiquito
03 – Caravana
04 – Coco Baturite
05 – Nina Brazanan
06 – Baile O Coco
07 – Uno a Cero
08 – Canta Maria
09 – Mulher Rendeira
10 – Imperio de Samba
11 – Samba no Perroquet
12 – Nino Grande

Update: Jorge Mello sent this great Bola Sete interview, available below. New findings about this mysterious album will be posted tonight. Stay tuned.

Elza Soares – Somos Todos Iguais (1985)

Link original: Elza Soares – Somos Todos Iguais (1985)
Publicado em: Wednesday, June 25, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! This is one of the most requested albums by Elza Soares since the beginning of Loronix. The reason is quite simple; approximately the whole Elza Soares discography was reissued on CD in 2002, covering all albums recorded by Elza Soares for Odeon between 1960 and 1988. Everything was released on a single box set featuring 12 CDs, containing 22 LPs. This stupid parrot did not get one, now out of print. Two albums were left outside this box set, Elza Negra Elza (1980), already available at Loronix and Somos Todos Iguais (1985), which is this one we will have the chance to know right now, a sought after album and perhaps the only Elza Soares career album never released on CD. Let’s see.

This is Elza Soares – Somos Todos Iguais (1985), for Som Livre. Little I know about this album, considered an above the average Elza Soares release. I read several things today about this record and several sources says that Caetano Veloso and Lobao are in charge of production, which is something that needs to be confirmed since they are not credited here, and Caetano Veloso only appears as special guest on track 09 – Sophisticated Lady (Duke Ellington). Musicians were not credited by Som Livre, except the arranger, Glaucus Xavier. Tracks include:

01 – Osso Pele e Pano (Jorge Aragão)
02 – Mais Uma Vez (Carlos Dafé / Lourenço)
03 – Da Fuga Fez Sua Verdade (Sombrinha / Sereno / Adilson)
04 – Cacatua (Ronaldo Barcellos)
05 – Daquele Amor Nem Me Fale (João Donato / Martinho da Vila)
06 – Heróis da Liberdade (Mano Décio da Viola / Silas de Oliveira)
07 – Somos Todos Iguais (Elza Soares)
08 – Antes do Sol (Ronaldo Barcellos / Pi)
09 – Sophisticated Lady (Duke Ellington / Vrs. Augusto de Campos) with Caetano Veloso
10 – Exagero (Elza Soares / Glaucus Xavier)
11 – Milagres (Cazuza / Roberto Frejat)

Johnny Alf - Olhos Negros

Johnny Alf - Olhos Negros_2

Hello, good evening! I have good news to tell you. Johnny Alf, after a long period of serious health problems, takes over his activities and even made rehearsals with his quintet, just a month before his 79th anniversary. I read this new today with a great pleasure. Although very underestimated, Johnny Alf is a very important musician. He introduced a new way of singing and playing many years before the creation of Bossa Nova, influencing artists such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Marcos Valle, Carlos Lyra among many others. This is Loronix homage to this great musician. Let’s see.

This is Johnny Alf – Olhos Negros (1990), for RCA, featuring Johnny Alf music and Johnny Alf singing and playing piano in all tracks. Olhos Negros was recorded after a long hiatus of 10 years and it is a beautiful celebration of Johnny Alf music. Each track has a special guest, performing with Johnny Alf on duets. It was very hard to decide Loronix Preview Center track and I decided to deliver the opening track with Johnny Alf and Gal Costa performing Ilusao a Toa. Tracks include:

The Special Guests


Track List

01 – Ilusao a Toa (Johnny Alf) with GAL COSTA
02 – Dois Coracoes (Johnny Alf) with ROBERTO MENESCAL
03 – Seu Chopin, Desculpe (Johnny Alf) with CHICO BUARQUE

Jacob Do Bandolim - Chorinhos E Choroes

I believe it is time to make a special thank to Jorge Mello for making his collection available to our community. This is a Jacob do Bandolim career album that I never had the chance to hear.

Jacob do Bandolim delivers some of his greatest renditions here. My highlight goes to Ameno Reseda, Os Cinco Companheiros, Proezas de Solon and Assanhado, which is the one selected to Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:
