This is really cool. Lira de Xopoto was a Radio show broadcasted by Radio Nacional in Rio de Janeiro, which was designed to announce and promote regional bands from the countryside of Brazil. Paulo Roberto presented the radio show and the Maestro in charge of musical direction and arrangements was Lyrio Panicali.

Supporting the radio show, a homonimous band was created, Lyra de Xopoto, releasing several 78rpm and some LPs. This is a LP release, Lyra de Xopoto – Relembrando Sucessos (1960), for Sinter, probably, a compilation of previous recordings.

It is supposed that Maestro Lyrio Panicali is in charge of this LP arrangement or at least some of them. Really unique LP with a nice cover that makes this release a nice pick for Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – São Paulo Quatrocentão
02 – Noite Feliz
03 – Brejeiro
04 – 13 de Maio
05 – Arnoud no Choro
06 – Caixinha de Música
07 – Jingle Bells
08 – 26 de Junho
09 – Pastorinhas
10 – São Paulo
11 – Cristo Nasceu na Bahia
12 – Nova Friburgo

This is an amazing post provided by a couple of very good friends of Loronix and also five out of five stars blog owners, Now to the Power of Now from N.America Loves S.America and Trix from TrixVinylRips. zecalouro is just doing the easy work, Now and Trix have all credits.

I will take from N.America Loves S.America the entire record description provided by Now, since I could not make it better. Mighty Now took four months to get this cover. Let’s stay with Now words.

“All due respect to trixvinylrips for this SUPER AMAZING POST. 

Trix has told me of the true content of this record & its importance. He tells me that it is a super rare meeting of some very fine talents fused to the SAMBA REVIVAL. The Golden Boys,Trio Esperança & Evinha are some the artists involved here. This record is so alive and overflowing with energy! If pure Samba is your thing, then this record is for YOU. Worth having for the super sweet “Camisa 10” alone, which I’m told is the number of the very famous football star PELE. Every track is a winner on this one. This is the second time I get to hear the super funky “Dingui Li Bangue”, with it’s chorus chanting “Like a SEX MACHINE”. Very strong album of Samba workouts! I would safely say a “Carnival Bomb” hit this one!! THE PARTY IS HERE. ALL ABOARD! 5 stars! Thanks Trix for this rip & any of those sharing their rare LP’s with us. YOU ARE the record company & much respect for keeping the spirit of this music alive! Crate Diggers RULE!

P.S. It took me 4 months to track down the proper LP artwork for this one. Cheers!”

This new one is really great, Arara Azul is the Loronixer friend that provided the first Elizabeth release, Eu, Elizabeth. If you had fun with that first, you cannot miss this second one, Elizabeth – Quero ver de Perto (1970), for RGE. Elizabeth composes alone all 12 tracks on this new one; she was probably also responsible for this cover, really gorgeous.

Elizabeth was active until the late 70’s, from this point; I could not search any other recording. Musicians on the set were not listed. Tracks include:

01 – Quero Ver de Perto (Elizabeth)
02 – Vulcão (Elizabeth)

Since the first day I met Mr. D&C, he said wonders about this Duo, Burnier and Cartier. I have to admit that Mr. D&C was 100% right. This is not a LP that hooks you at a first hearing, you will need to give several chances to him, but when you start having fun, you will never stop to it.

This is Burnier e Cartier – Burnier e Cartier (1974), their debut LP for RCA. These nice dudes were active from 1974 to 1978, releasing their second LP in 1976 for Odeon and another very hard to find release in collaboration with Don Burrows for First American Records (1977) as Brazilian Parrots. Later this month, we will have good news about this Brazilian Parrots. Tracks include:

01 – Só Tem Lugar Pra Você (Tavinho Bonfá / Cláudio Cartier)
02 – Aldeia Global (Cláudio Cartier)
03 – Lejos de Mi (Luis Bonfá / Tavinho Bonfá)

Another Mr. X release, the most obscure, incognito and impossible to identify Loronix contributor. In spite of the mystery that surrounds Mr. X activities, his contributions are always great, not different with this one, Carolina Cardoso de Menezes – Boite Carolina (1957) for Odeon.

If were not introduced to Carolina by the earlier posts, this is a great chance. Carolina Cardoso de Menezes is a classic pianist that dedicated his career to popular music, adapting jazz feelings to Brazilian rhythms. I guess this is Carolina debut LP, just a guess that needs to be checked, since I have been loosing some reputation when informing debut LPs. Tracks include:

01 – Despedida de Mangueira (Benedito Lacerda / Aldo Cabral)
02 – Boa Noite Amor (José Maria de Abreu / Francisco Matoso)
03 – Puladinho (Carolina Cardoso de Menezes)

Clare Fischer Plays Antonio Carlos Jobim and Clare Fischer – So Danco Samba (1962)

Publicado em: Tuesday, November 07, 2006 by zecalouro

Caetano Rodrigues and Charles Gavin book has an amazing section with records from non-Brazilian artists performing Bossa Nova. Particularly, Charlie Byrd LPs are fantastic with those covers with parrots and macaws with some Brazilian spots on background.

Among the several gems available there, Caetano selected a special one, Clare Fischer – Clare Fischer Plays Antonio Carlos Jobim and Clare Fischer, So Danco Samba (1962), for World Pacific with Clare Fischer (piano, organ), Dennis Budimir (guitar), Bob West (bass) and Colin Bailey (drums). For a flawless description of Clare Fischer’s So Danco Samba, I’m gathering Caetano own words, as follow:

“This America pianist really tried to decipher the refined language of Bossa Nova. He was not one of the pioneers of the new style as great names of the international jazz scene had already tackled it. However, Fischer’s merit lay in his choice of repertoire, almost entirely based on the songs by Tom Jobim, bringing elements of jazz into the traditional Brazilian flavor, despite the obvious limitations in his swing and playing technique. The truth is that Bossa Nova revitalized jazz, bringing back a cool vibe again”.

It has been a long time since the last release provided by Mr. K., our Japanese collaborator, our Loronix friend that pleased us with Leny Andrade – Gravado no Mexico (1966) some weeks ago. There are some releases from Mr. K. queued and this pick is another nice one.

This is Ana Lucia – Ana Lucia (1959), for Chantecler, until some friend tells I’m wrong, probably her debut LP. This is certainly a most wanted LP of this Brazilian singer that was not well known by many and now has a place on our collection. The cover artwork remembers a lot Baden Powell debut LP, released in the same period by Philips. Thanks once again Mr. K. Tracks include:

01 – Cheiro de Saudade (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio)
02 – Por Que Tinha de Ser (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)

Someone, not someone, Zelal, said that Dulce Nunes – Samba do Escritor is an album that makes his/her eyes wet. Zelal also said that the first Dulce Nunes LP, Dulce, is also unique and has the participation of Baden Powell.

Zelal, I don’t know who you are, but I took your suggestion and made a try at Dulce Nunes – Dulce (1966), for Forma. I agree with you, wonderful LP. The arrangements are from Maestro Guerra Peixe, Baden Powell not only plays guitar as a sideman, but is an active collaborator making arrangements of some tracks. Maestro Guerra Peixe plays the piano as well the legendary sax, flute and clarinet player Copinha. Tracks include:

01 – Cântico (Baden Powell / Luis de Camões)
02 – Bom Dia Amigo (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Canção à Minha Amada (Baden Powell / Ruy Guerra)

It was very hard to choose the best post of this Saturday. Really. It took me a lot of time to decide what sould be the best pick. I will not tell the others to do not spoil the surprise on further posts, they were all great and could be here easily.

For several reasons, the decision was Claudette Soares – E Dona da Bossa (1964), for the legendary label Mocambo. I took hours thinking to decide and now I’m having troubles on writing about this release. Anyway, perhaps it is another self-explanatory, full of classic Bossa Nova tunes, such as: Garota de Ipanema, Tristeza de Nos Dois and Samba do Aviao. Tracks include:

01 – Pra Que Chorar (Vinicius de Moraes / Baden Powell)
02 – Azul Contente (Tereza Souza / Walter Santos)
03 – Samba do Avião (Tom Jobim)
04 – Sem Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)

The series was started with the last Lucio Alves release, now it is time present a really important singer and composer Sergio Ricardo with Sergio Ricardo – A Grande Musica de Sergio Ricardo (1967).

Sergio Ricardo is an artist of social concerns, involved since the early age with politics, being one of those interpreters of what is recognized in Brazil as Musica de Protesto. Sergio Ricardo had also many participations of Brazilian festivals making history when he broke his acoustic guitar when eliminated, YouTubed on this post.

Sergio Ricardo has several collaborations with the Brazilian film maker Glauber Rocha, being responsible for the sound track of the legendary film Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol. You can read a full Sergio Ricardo bio at AMG, here. Tracks include:

We have another Nilser release, subsidiary of Nilo Sergio’s Musidisc. It is easy to recognize a Nilser LP, the cover is always on a light brown color, with a very thin cross pattern. The typeface used is always the same, based on serif with strong brow color. However, what amazes me most at Nilser releases is the lack of information available, always minimum.

The last Nilser release was truly amazing, The Bossa Nova Modern Quartet – Bossa Nova Jazz Samba (1963). After a month or two, several issues remain with no answer.

At our own risk, let’s give Nilser another try with As Vedetes – As Vedetes (1964), a female vocal group, some kind of Quarteto em Cy wannabee. It is not necessary to say further information about As Vedetes and this release is really appreciated. Tracks include:

01 – Times Square (João Roberto Kelly / Meira Guimarães)
02 – Amanhecendo (Roberto Menescal / Luis Fernando Freire)
03 – A Rosa (Ed Lincoln / Nilo Sergio)
04 – Consolação (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)

I’m sure that you will enjoy another anthological Bossa Nova show, Elis Regina – Elis no Teatro Da Praia Com Miele & Bôscoli (1970), recorded live at Teatro da Praia, Rio de Janeiro for Philips. The repertoire has several well-known Brazilian songs with some orientation to the upcoming 70’s decade instead of Bossa Nova classics from the 60’s, including Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Jorge Ben, among others.

Elis Regina shares the spotlight with Miele and Ronaldo Boscoli, backed by Roberto Menescal, Jurandir, Ze Roberto Bertrami, Wilson das Neves and Hermes. Luiz Carlos Miele, for those who do not know, is an important artist for Bossa Nova, maybe one day we make his debut at Loronix. Tracks include:

Meirelles version of Richard Strauss Also Sprach Zarathustra, theme of the legendary movie 2001, a Space Odyssey.

It’s amazing that in 1974 a sci-fi movie predicting the year 2001 is being released again in 2006. We are really getting older. Thanks Arara Azul for this Meirelles LP, the flute player on Sylvia Telles and Rosinha de Valenca video. Tracks include:

This is a really hard to find Lana Bittencourt LP, Lana Bittencourt – Intimamente (1958), for Columbia, probably her debut LP. I’m happy to make this post, since Lana was “revealed” at Loronix with the album MusicalScope and since then, several friends came to my mailbox saying that Lana was forgotten on their memories and Loronix provided a revival of Lana on their minds.

Very strong statement, but with Lana Bittencourt there are extremes, several loyal fans and those ones that did not take a time already for her singing. No matter what is your position, take a time to hear this LP, a very early Lana Bittencourt work that worth a try. Tracks include:

01 – Se Todos Fossem Iguais a Você
02 – Esquecimento
03 – Porque É
04 – Quem Se Humilha
05 – Desistência
06 – Quero Ir à Bahia

I’m not exactly a fan of the several LPs released with live recording of the Brazilian Festivals from the 60’s, but this one is really different. This is 4o Festival da Balança – Various Artists (1966) for RCA, considered by its organizations as the greatest University show of all times.

4o Festival da Balanca was recorded live in October 1965 in Sao Paulo at Esporte Clube Pinheiros, organized by Faculdade de Direito Mackenzie. The festival has organized by a group of students lead by Manoel Poladian, also student that became a renowned producer at the 80’s. The selection made by RCA brings nine tracks with Jongo Trio, Maricenne Costa, Pedrinho Mattar Trio, Maria Bethania, Marisa Gata Mansa, Trio 3D, Coral da Universidade Mackenzie, Os Farroupilhas and Gilberto Gil. An estimate of 4,000 people was on the gig. Who were there? I wish I could… Tracks include:

I’m making something different today, starting the show by the main attraction that was scheduled for yesterday and could not be released. This post is also the second out of a continuous series of releases in collaboration with Caetano Rodrigues.

Actually, for the past 5 days I have been thinking how could I make a public congratulation message at Loronix for the help and enthusiasm of Caetano with Loronix community. Caetano has been so nice with Loronix that a single congratulation message like this one cannot represent my feelings.

I will not resist saying that I’m a new and very happy owner of Caetano’s Bossa Nova book that came with a handwriting message of Caetano that makes my copy unique. Thanks for it Caetano and welcome to our community. You are one of the great Loronix friends.

Yesterday, I was planning with Caetano all the six initial releases sent with the book. We decided that the greatest one – absolute secret to Loronixers – will be the last one. Since this is the second, stay tune during upcoming week.

This is Paulo Alencar and His Brazilian All Stars – Jazza Nova (1963), original released by Odeon as Bossa Nova Jazz – MOSD 3323. This release speaks by itself, a Jazzy LP from the early 60’s with all-stars musicians on the set and arrangements of Maestro Cipo, including piano, guitar, bass, percussion, sax, and horns on a sextet. Unfortunately, musicians were not credited, even the gorgeous Ziriguidoom singer. Bossanovadreamer will enjoy it a lot, those guys blows great. Tracks include:

01 – Verbo Amar (Herivelto Martins)
02 – Idéias (Cipó)
03 – West samba (Cipó)

Before showing this release, I want to make an announcement that is very important to our Brazilian music community. had sometime earlier this week an update. This update came to my attention by the Bossanovadreamer, the connected German friend of Loronix.

But it was not an upgrade, we are talking about a *major* upgrade with approximately 75 new LP covers, bought on a single box a few years ago and forgot in a closet, according with Sabadabada own words. When I read that I ran quickly to my closet and nothing was found… The music was also updated with my highlights to Ruy Maurity – Safra/74 (1973), for Odeon and De Savoya – De Savoya (1972), for Polydor, De Savoya is Ed Lincoln.

That’s it Take a time to visit the updated, the Sanctuary of Bossa Nova, here. (

With this update, I could finally manage a quality cover for this release, Som Tres – Um e Pouco, Dois e Bom, Esse Som Tres e Demais (1969) for Odeon. The wait was worth; this cover is amazing with these 70’s clothes. It looks like they are dressed for a Bruce Lee movie.

Cesar Camargo Mariano arranges this LP and Som Tres is César Camargo Mariano (piano), Sabá (bass) and Toninho (drums). Tracks include:

01 – Tanga (Toninho / César Camargo Mariano)
02 – Trevo de 4 Folhas (I’m Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover) (M. Dixon / H. Woods)
03 – Love Letters (V. Young / E. Heyman) — Meu Nome É Gal (Roberto Carlos / Erasmo Carlos)
04 – Take It Easy My Brother Charles (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
05 – Teletema (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
06 – Spooky (M. Shapina / H. Middlebrooks / B. Bule / J. Cobb)
07 – Não Identificado (Caetano Veloso)
08 – O Meu Baião (César Camargo Mariano / Chico Anísio)
09 – Bird Brain (Henry Mancini)
10 – Só Faltava Você (Sabá)
11 – Horizonte (Luis Cláudio / Luis Fernando Fonseca)

Very wise of Max de Castro of calling my attention to Dom Salvador and this LP, Dom Salvador – Dom Salvador (1969), not available at Loronix and made possible by Max, who sent also the files from his personal collection. Thanks once again, Max for the great sharing spirit and your always nice collaborations.

This Dom Salvador release is a real missing piece, recorded just before the creation of Dom Salvador & Abolicao – Som, Sangue e Raça (1971), his legendary LP with the black only band Abolicao.

Max said that Dom Salvador is one of the first posts at Loronix and it is quite sure that our community will appreciate this new release. I agree with Max and I’m sure of it. Unfortunately, I could not search info on who is playing with Dom Salvador piano at the set, which is something that you can help us to identify with your collaboration in comments section.

So, I invite you to review or meet Angela Maria – Quando os Maestros se Encontram com Angela Maria (1957) for Copacabana.

Link original: Rosinha de Valenca e Waltel Branco – Violao em Dois Estilos (1980)
Publicado em: Thursday, November 02, 2006 by zecalouro 

Hello, Good night! Everybody is excited with the new Laurindo Almeida blog announced yesterday. I’m also happy, the video with The Modern Jazz Quartet is truly amazing and those impossible to find Laurindo Almeida LPs are unique.

Let’s take advantage of this “guitar” mood with a LP that brings together two legends of Brazilian guitar playing, Rosinha de Valenca e Waltel Branco – Violao em Dois Estilos (1980), for Som Livre, never released on CD and very hard to find.

I’m always reluctant to say if an album is good or not, but I’m breaking this rule now: nice record. Rosinha and Waltel do not play together, Rosinha performs tracks 01 to 05 and Waltel Branco guitar can be heard on tracks 06 to 11. Bass, drums and piano accompanies some tracks, while others are just acoustic guitar solo, unfortunately, personnel in the set is not listed. Tracks include:

01 – Porto das Flores (Rosinha de Valença)
02 – Asa Branca (Luis Gonzaga / Humberto Teixeira)
03 – Valsa de Euridice (Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Bala Com Bala (João Bosco / Aldir Blanc)
05 – Morena do Mar (Dorival Caymmi)
06 – Bachiana Nº 5 (Villa-Lobos)
07 – Ponteio (Waltel Branco)
08 – Siciliana (Maria Thereza Paradis) version: Waltel Blanco
09 – Diferenças Sobre Guarda-me Las Vacas (Luis de Novaes) version: Waltel Blanco
10 – Minueto (Johann Sebastian Bach) version: Waltel Blanco
11 – Prelúdio Nº 13 (Johann Sebastian Bach) version: Waltel Blanco

Caetano Rodrigues

25 09 2011

Na postagem do disco do Primo e seu conjunto o Zeca Louro fala que no final daquele dia (01 de novembro de 2006) haveria uma grande postagem de encerramento. Porém, ela não aparece no Loronix como ele é hoje. Pesquisando na Internet WayBack Machine, acabei descobrindo o que era: a primeira contribuição para o Loronix enviada pelo grande colecionador Caetano Rodrigues . O disco era o “Impacto!” do conjunto 7 de Ouros, que, posteriormente, recebeu um update do Zeca, sendo republicado em 18 de setembro de 2007. Ou seja, ele ainda aparecerá aqui (o update está em ) . Mas o mais importante é registrar a primeira contribuição do Caetano Rodrigues ao Loronix, que ocorreu, portanto, em 01/11/2006.

O Caetano Rodrigues que, infelizmente, faleceu em outubro de 2010, era, provavelmente, o maior colecionador de Bossa Nova do mundo e colaborou bastante com o Loronix, trazendo discos raríssimos para o acervo. Ele foi fundamental para tornar o blog tão importante.

Quem quiser conhece-lo melhor pode ler o texto do Ruy Castro que está nos comentários da postagem em e que reproduzo abaixo.


Conheça o carioca que possui a maior coleção de bossa nova do mundo

O que significa você gostar muito de uma coisa –bossa nova, por exemplo– e sonhar que, um dia, terá TUDO o que se produziu a respeito? No caso, os discos gravados por João Gilberto, Tom Jobim, Carlos Lyra, Sylvia Telles, Nara Leão, Roberto Menescal e tantos outros há 50 anos, quando Ipanema era apenas uma praia carioca, não um “landmark” mundial, e suas garotas, privilégio dos nativos. Bem, não é tão difícil –esses discos clássicos ainda podem ser encontrados em muitos sebos do Rio e de São Paulo.

Um pouco mais difícil é encontrar os discos dos pioneiros que, há quase 60 anos, já faziam uma bossa nova antes da própria bossa nova –Dick Farney, Lucio Alves, Johnny Alf, Doris Monteiro, Dolores Duran, Maysa. Mas também não é impossível. Duro mesmo é achar os discos dos brasileiros e americanos menos famosos que se dedicaram à bossa nova, e que gravaram em selos pequenos e obscuros, no Brasil e nos EUA, quase todos desaparecidos há muito tempo. Note bem, não estamos falando de CDs, mas dos discos originais: os LPs, os vinis, as bolachas pretas –objetos com meio século de vida ou mais.

Imagine agora o que significa ter tudo isso em casa, em cópias reluzentes, sem um estalo ou arranhão, tanto os discos quanto as capas –estas envoltas em translúcidos plásticos de 2010, com gramatura 18 (a única modernidade aceita na coleção). Por fim, enfileire essas preciosidades em estantes que vão do chão ao teto e você terá um fascinante capítulo da música popular brasileira –e internacional– ao alcance da agulha do seu toca-discos.

Caetano Augusto Rodrigues, estatístico com formação em engenharia rodoviária, carioca da Urca, 75 anos, dos quais os últimos 30 em São Paulo, tinha tudo isso em seu apartamento no bairro do Paraíso. É, provavelmente, a maior coleção particular de bossa nova do mundo: cerca de 1.600 discos em primeira edição, sendo mais da metade em LPs da época, e o que foi depois já produzido em CD (mas muitos desses esgotados ou fora de catálogo há anos). A coleção serviu de base em 2006 para o livraço “Bossa Nova e Outras Bossas – A Arte e o Design das Capas dos LPs”, um “coffee-table” com 312 páginas, assinado por Caetano e pelo músico e pesquisador Charles Gavin.

O livro, patrocinado pela Petrobrás, teve tiragem limitada e não pôde ser vendido comercialmente, única maneira de driblar a impossibilidade de localizar e pagar direitos autorais aos profissionais responsáveis pelas capas. Se dependesse de Caetano, ele estaria nas mãos de cada apaixonado pelo gênero. Como não é possível, o jeito é procurá-lo nas melhores bibliotecas.

Para reunir sua coleção, Caetano contou certa vez que levou quase o tempo de uma vida –desde que comprou seu primeiro disco (um humilde 78 r.p.m.), aos nove anos, numa loja do centro do Rio, muito antes que se falasse em bossa nova. No começo dos anos 1950, ele conheceu um músico jovem e ultra-moderno, o gaitista Mauricio Einhorn, futuro co-autor de “Estamos Aí”. Em 1955, levado por Mauricio, Caetano mal tinha tempo para dormir: todas as noites, às 3h, ia ouvir o fabuloso Johnny Alf na boate Plaza, em Copacabana –e, quando Johnny se mudou para São Paulo, Luizinho Eça, Ed Lincoln, Milton Banana e outros o sucederam na pequena boate. Ninguém sabia, mas era a bossa nova em trabalho de parto.


No Rio, as divindades roçam cotovelos com os mortais comuns, e foi assim que, em pouco tempo, trabalhando na TV Rio como assistente de câmara, Caetano vivia às voltas com Luiz Bonfá, Tito Madi, Sylvinha Telles, Vinicius de Moraes, Antonio Maria. Quando se falou em bossa nova pela primeira vez, em 1958, dentro do apartamento de Nara Leão, Caetano já era íntimo daquela música, só não sabia o nome. Aliás, ninguém sabia –as massas ainda não tinham se dado conta de que aquilo “era bossa nova, era muito natural”.

Mas, não demoraria muito, a bossa nova se tornaria uma marca da modernidade, tanto no Brasil quanto nos EUA, que a descobriu e se apaixonou por ela. Dali, a partir de 1960, começaram a sair discos e mais discos “de bossa nova” –embora alguns só contivessem bossa nova no título. Esses LPs, hoje muito difíceis de achar, tornaram-se “itens de colecionador” e foram todos encontrados por Caetano, que os disputou, um a um, com colecionadores internacionais.

Outros ele comprou na época em que saíram, nos anos 1960, ao fim dos shows nas minúsculas boates do Beco das Garrafas, como o do lendário baterista Edison Machado. E esse é um privilégio que ninguém tira de Caetano: ele viu todos aqueles gênios em ação, comprou seus discos, ganhou seus autógrafos e, de vários, ficou amigo.

Uma coleção não se compõe apenas de objetos raros mas também da história que cercou a aquisição de cada um. Daí que esses discos podem ter preço –e Caetano dizia que gastou com eles o equivalente a um ou dois apartamentos no bairro do Paraíso. Mas, mais caras ainda, foram as memórias maravilhosas –essas, sim, impossíveis de calcular– que ele guardou enquanto completava a coleção.

Sim, ele a considerava completa. Só não podia adivinhar que, logo depois de fechar a coleção, sua vida também estaria completa. Caetano Rodrigues morreu no dia 13 último, no Incor, em São Paulo, depois de rapidíssima doença.

So, we are having this extraordinary morning post, Lyrio Panicali and His Orchestra – Bossa Nova 70 (197?), a LP not listed on Lyrio Panicali discographies that I could check. This issue is from an Australian label – Music for Pleasure, MFP A 8106 -, which is some sort of EMI subsidiary.

Link original: Quarteto Sambacana – Muito Pra Frente (1965) with Milton Nascimento
Publicado em: Tuesday, October 31, 2006 by zecalouro

This LP is so amazing and for an unexplainable reason is being released several months after Loronix was born. Perhaps is part of human being nature that use to keep secret of things that he likes very much, but don’t blame zecalouro for keeping this record away that long, this classic is widely available and probably everybody already had the chance to listen to it before.

Anyway, this should make your day, Quarteto Sambacana – Muito Pra Frente (1965). Truly wonderful, considered the first recording by Milton Nascimento who sings and leads a vocal group formed by Milton Nascimento (solo), Gileno Tiso, Sergio Salles and Marcos de Castro. They really make the difference, accompanied by Oscar Galente and e Ubirajara Cabral (piano), Geraldo Vespar (acoustic guitar), J.T. Meirelles (flute and sax), Ed. Maciel and Joao Luis (trombone), Mauricio (piston), Moacir Marques (sax), J. Claudio (vibes), Tiao Marinho (bass) and Wilson (drums). Tracks include fourteen Pacifico Mascarenhas compositions, as follows:

01 – Tom da Canção (Pacífico Mascarenhas)
02 – O Vento Que Soprou (Pacífico Mascarenhas)
03 – Até Você Voltar (Pacífico Mascarenhas)
04 – Aladim (Pacífico Mascarenhas)
05 – Era Um Dia Assim (Pacífico Mascarenhas)
06 – Estrela Caindo (Pacífico Mascarenhas)
07 – Eu e Você (Pacífico Mascarenhas)
08 – Sem Me Olhar (Pacífico Mascarenhas)
09 – Fui Olhar Pra Você (Pacífico Mascarenhas)
10 – Mesmo Céu (Pacífico Mascarenhas)
11 – Você É Muito Mais (Pacífico Mascarenhas)

Joao Roberto Kelly – Joao Roberto Kelly Apresenta Rio da Samba (1977)

25 09 2011

Link original: Joao Roberto Kelly – Joao Roberto Kelly Apresenta Rio da Samba (1977)
Publicado em: Tuesday, October 31, 2006 by zecalouro

If you were living in Brazil during the 70’s, you will probably remember this samba show aired every Saturday by Joao Roberto Kelly, Rio da Samba. I’m not sure when it started and how long it lasts, but it is something that is part of that decade to me.

Joao Roberto Kelly is a great artist and this enterprise was really amazing, some sort of freak samba show that I could never watch something similar to it. Perhaps Brazilians remembers Kelly by this show, not for the great composer he is.

Anyway, this is Joao Roberto Kelly – Joao Roberto Kelly Apresenta Rio da Samba (1977), another fine release by the hands of the great and obscure contributor Mr. X. Even zecalouro does not have a clue of Mr. X. real identity and this is part of the fun to receive his contributions that are many, with several ones in a row waiting.

The cover can give you the idea of the show “spirit”. Have a try! Special attention to track 01 – Danca do Bole Bole (available by a 30s sample), which was the show theme. Tracks include:

Sorry, I forgot to say that this LP is great and has several guests, as follows: Conjunto Nosso Samba, Paulinho da Viola, Jurema, Clementina de Jesus, Lincoln, Joao Nogueira, Luiz Ayrao, Delcio Carvalho, Walter Rosa, Nadinho da Ilha and Roberto Ribeiro.

01 – Dança do Bole Bole (João Roberto Kelly)
02 – Seu Diretor (Neném / Pintado)
03 – Perdoa (Paulinho da Viola)
04 – Madame Satã (Totonho / Paulinho Resende)
05 – Marinheiro Só (Caetano Veloso)
06 – A Encruzilhada (Sônia Amaral / Bentana)
07 – Follies Bergere (João Roberto Kelly)
08 – Pimenta no Vatapá (João Nogueira / Cláudio Jorge)
09 – O Que Que Há Portela (Tiãozinho Poeta)
10 – Só Chora Quem Ama (Wilson Moreira / Nei Lopes)
11 – Pernambuco o Leão do Norte (Silas de Oliveira)
12 – Mormaço (João Roberto Kelly)

Link original: Renata Lu – Renata Lu (1971)
Publicado em: Monday, October 30, 2006 by zecalouro

Yesterday, the first release of the day was an LP of Nonato Buzar. Remember that I said that Renata Lu was credited as a singer on some tracks? You probably do not remember, but a new Loronixer from France, let’s call him Mr. Bap., read that and decided to send a LP to zecalouro.

Amazingly, this LP was Renata Lu – Renata Lu (1971), a requested artist that I had no hope to find a LP one day. Mr. Bap. is a collector, focused on sambalanco from the 70’s. Let’s send greetings and thanks to Mr. Bap. This is the debut LP of Renata Lu, a Samba Singer from the 70’s. She is brand new to zecalouro but I could search that her great success is Sandalia de Prata, a song released on the homonymous 1976 LP. I cannot resist saying that this cover is great. Tracks include:

01 – Faz Tanto Tempo (Marcos Moran / José Ari)
02 – Folhas de Outono (Márcio Alexandre / Hélio Matheus)
03 – Sou Frevo (Edmundo Souto / Arnoldo Medeiros)
04 – Meu Canto Minha Volta (Carlos Imperial / Jorge Roberto)
05 – Eu Quero Ficar Só (José Messias)
06 – Conta-me (Cuentame)
07 – Sambaloo (Salvador / Arnoldo Medeiros)
