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!”

From now on, every release provided by the mighty Arara Azul will be delivered with this picture, some sort of Arara Azul Quality Seal, will be very easy to identify the always-nice releases provided by Arara Azul.

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)
04 – Lembrando Ed Kleiger (Tavinho Bonfá)
05 – Deixa Mudar (Tavinho Bonfá)
06 – Parte Capital (Tavinho Bonfá / Cláudio Cartier)
07 – Mirandolina (Tavinho Bonfá)
08 – Aí É Que Tá (Tavinho Bonfá / Ivan Wrigg)
09 – Aventura Espacial (Luis Bonfá)
10 – Barranco (Tavinho Bonfá / Gustavo Strunck)
11 – Europanema (Tavinho Bonfá)
12 – Marcante (Tavinho Bonfá / Cláudio Cartier)

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)
04 – Mulher de Malandro (Heitor dos Prazeres)
05 – Nancy (Bruno Arelli)
06 – Dono dos Teus Olhos (Humberto Teixeira)
07 – Maria Maria (Tuyú)
08 – Dor de Recordar (Joubert de Carvalho)
09 – Batuquente (Carolina Cardoso de Menezes)
10 – Vai Haver Barulho no Chateau (Noel Rosa / Valdrido Silva)
11 – Preludiando (Carolina Cardoso de Menezes)
12 – Boa Sorte (Carolina Cardoso de Menezes)

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

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)
03 – Esquecendo Você (Tom Jobim)
04 – Destinos (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio)
05 – Nada no Meu Coração (Hervé Cordovil)
06 – Tema do Adeus (Salathiel Coelho / Ribeiro Filho)
07 – Chicote (Aloísio Figueiredo / Nelson Figueiredo)
08 – Cor do Pecado (Bororó)
09 – Mundo Mau (Sidney Morais / Julio Rosemberg)
10 – A Outra Face (Celso Mendes Nogueira / Henrique Lobo)
11 – O Tempo e o Vento (Johnny Alf)
