I swear it was accidentally, another LP with Nara Leao as special guest on two tracks. I promise, for the next two weeks I will skip future releases with Nara Leao as special guest. Anyway, let’s forget these coincidences to take a special attention to this release. This is Quinteto Violado – Quinteto Violado (1972), for Philips, the debut LP of this unique Brazilian band from the 70’s that is active until today.

This post was generated by a conversation with Refer, who suggested – correctly – some more regional music releases at Loronix with a few selected picks. We cannot go wrong with Quinteto Violado, an instrumental band that mixes standard instruments with primitives ones, such as: arremedo, matraca, ganza, etc. If this is your first time with Quinteto Violado, do not miss, it is a unique experience. Personnel for this LP is Marcelo Melo (acoustic guitar), Fernando Filizola (viola), Luciano Pimentel (percussion), Toinho Alves (bass) e Sando (fluete). The last two tracks are bonus track from the Fontana’s 1979 reissue. Tracks include (does not includes the bonus tracks).

01 – Asa Branca (Luis Gonzaga / Humberto Teixeira)
02 – Freviola (Marcelo Melo)
03 – Santana (Fernando Filizola)
04 – Reflexo (Luciano Pimentel / Fernando Filizola / Toinho Alves)
05 – Imagens do Recife (Deda / Marcelo Melo / Toinho Alves)
06 – Roda de Ciranda (Marcelo Melo / Toinho Alves)
07 – Baião da Garoa (Luis Gonzaga / Hervé Cordovil)
08 – Acauã (Zé Dantas)
09 – Marcha Nativa dos Índios Quiriris (Toinho Alves / Marcelo Melo)
10 – Vozes da Seca (Luis Gonzaga / Zé Dantas)
11 – Agreste (Fernando Filizola / Sando)

This is in a particular homage for a friend that I made with Loronix, a great friend that lives more than 4 hours ahead of Brazilian time and it is here every night, waiting for the last post, exchanging ideas using email or IM and sometimes ending his day at the end of mine, which is around 2 or 3am. Does he ever sleep?

Sidney Miller – Sidney Miller (1967)

Publicado em: Wednesday, November 29, 2006 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Night! I cannot remember who asked my attention by shouting at CBox a few days ago to include a never released artist at Loronix. It was a really nice suggestion that I’m addressing with Sidney Miller – Sidney Miller (1967), for Elenco, the debut LP of this celebrated composer that was never properly recognized by the industry or public.

Sideny Miller released just three LPs and this is the first one. It has the participation of Nara Leao on two tracks, which is something that coincidentally is happening daily. Sidney Miller died in 1980 in the very early age of 45 years. As a tribute, Funarte, a Brazilian government culture institution, created a Theatre in Rio de Janeiro with his name, Sala Funarte Sidney Miller. AMG bio is being provided, with tracks.

01 – A Estrada e o Violeiro (Sidney Miller) – with Nara Leão
02 – Maria Joana (Sidney Miller)
03 – Marré-de-cy (Sidney Miller)
04 – Argumento (Sidney Miller)
05 – Minha Nega (Sidney Miller)
06 – Botequim Nº 1 (Sidney Miller)
07 – O Circo (Sidney Miller)
08 – Meu Violão (Sidney Miller)
09 – Passa Passa Gavião (Sidney Miller)
10 – Chorinho do Retrato (Sidney Miller)
11 – Menina da Agulha (Sidney Miller) – with Nara Leão
12 – Pede Passagem (Sidney Miller)

Sidney Miller was an impressive composer of some jewels (recorded by several important artists) who never aroused a bigger interest from the recording industry in spite of having been a very popular artist at historic festivals. His compositions have been recorded by Nara Leão, MPB-4, Quarteto em Cy, Caetano Veloso, Alaíde Costa, and Gal Costa.

A self-taught composer, his first samba (with Zé Keti and Paulo Tiago), “Queixa,” won fourth place at TV Excelsior’s I FMPB (São Paulo, SP, 1965), interpreted by Ciro Monteiro. In 1966, Nara Leão pioneered, recording unknown sambistas (who would be famous) like him and Paulinho da Viola, Chico Buarque, and Jards Macalé on her Nara Pede Passagem. The first LP by Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa, Domingo, had his “Maria Joana.”

In that year, Sidney joined a historic reunion at Sérgio Ricardo’s home, where Gil and Caetano tried to convince him, Edu Lobo, Dori Caymmi, Chico Buarque, Francis Hime, Paulinho da Viola, Torquato Neto, and Capinam to join the Tropicalia movement. In 1967, his “A Estrada e o Violeiro” was awarded for Best Lyrics at TV Record’s III FMPB, defended by Nara Leão and Miller. In the same year, he recorded his first LP, Sidney Miller (Elenco), which had “A Estrada e o Violeiro” (with Nara Leão), “Maria Joana,” “Marré-de-Cy,” “Argumento,” “O Circo,” “Menina da Agulha,” and “Pede Passagem,” among others.

Miller also wrote songs for the play Arena conta Tiradentes (Augusto Boal/Gianfrancesco Guarnieri), which also had music by Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. The album was recorded by Nara Leão for the Cia. Brasileira de Discos in 1967 had “Maria Joana,” “O Circo,” and “Passa Passa Gavião.” In 1968, he produced João de Barros’ show Yes, nós Temos Braguinha, and Marlene’s return show, Carnavália. That year, he also won first place at the Festival de Juiz de Fora MG, with “Sem Assunto” (recorded by two members of the future Quarteto em Cy, Cybele and Cylene). Also in 1968, he recorded his second LP for Elenco, Brasil, do Guarani ao Guaraná. Those were the Tropicalia times and this work is heavily Tropicalia-influenced, circumstance that made him later criticize this work. In 1969, he wrote the soundtrack of Paulo Tiago’s film Senhores da Terra, took part in the show Alice no País do Divino Maravilhoso, produced Nara Leão’s album Coisas Desse Mundo (Philips), and produced her show at the Sucata nightclub (Rio).

In 1971, he wrote the soundtrack for Haroldo Marinho Barbosa’s movie Vida de Artista. The next year, he wrote music for the play Por Mares Nunca Dantes Navegados by Orlando Miranda. In 1973, he wrote the soundtrack of Ovelha Negra, a film by Haroldo Marinho Barbosa, and the music for the play A Torre em Concurso by Joaquim Manuel de Macedo. In 1974, he recorded the LP Línguas de Fogo (Som Livre), with “Cicatrizes,” “Um dia Qualquer,” “Línguas de Fogo,” “Dos Anjos,” “Alô,” “Pala-Palavra,” and others. The posthumous LP released by Funarte in the ’80s (no date mentioned), Sidney Miller, brought “Maria Joana,” “Nós os Foliões,” “O Circo,” “Menina da Agulha” (interpreted by Zé Luiz and Alaíde Costa), “Paisagem Sobre Valsa” (Alaíde Costa), “Pois é, Prá Quê?” (Zezé Gonzaga, Alaíde Costa, and Zé Luiz), and “A Estrada e o Violeiro” (Sidney Miller and Nara Leão).

Paulinho da Viola included “Nós, os Foliões” on his 1982 LP A Toda Hora Rola uma História. MPB-4 recorded “Pois é, pra Quê?” and “Meu Violão.” Together, Quarteto em Cy and MPB-4 also recorded “A Estrada e o Violeiro.” Sidney Miller has a song and his name cobbled into the sidewalk of Vila Isabel, Rio, together with Noel Rosa.

This is another anthologic Brazilian show from the 60’s, considered by many one of the most important one. Performed in 1965, Show Opiniao went public during the first year of military dictatorship and was lead by Nara Leao together with Ze Keti and Joao do Vale, perhaps one of the most important manifestations against the new regime.

Publicado em: Tuesday, November 28, 2006 by zecalouro

Sometimes I receive emails or people reach me on-line at IM programs with a common fear, which is: “When you will run out of records at Loronix?” my answer is “I’m not afraid about this for the next decade!”. I’m talking serious. Once in a while I got surprised with new artists that are ready to be released for the first time at Loronix.

That’s exactly what happens with this LP, meet Sylvio Vianna e Seu Conjunto – Rio a Noite (1963), for RCA, the first Sylvio Vinna LP at Loronix. Sylvio Vianna is another Brazilian organist and I could not find much information about him, except that his records are sought among collectors at international action sites and shops. I had a lot of fun with zecalouro (the parrot) and this LP today; it is dancing, very swinging. I’m quite sure that you will also have a lot of fun. Tracks include a long, single and gorgeous side A and standard tracks on side B, as follow:

PS.: This LP has that Rio nightclub atmosphere from the 60’s that I like very much!

01 – Música Maestro (Arlindo Marques Júnior / Roberto Roberti) — Recordar (Aldacir Louro / Aloísio Marins / Adolfo Macedo) — O Trem Atrazou (Arthur Villarinho / Estanislau Silva / Paquito) — Atire a Primeira Pedra (Ataulfo Alves / Mário Lago) — General da Banda (Sátiro de Melo / Tancredo Silva / José Alcides) — Império do Samba (Zé da Zilda / Zilda do Zé) — Tumba Lê L~e (Francisco Neto / Nilton Neves / J. Reis) — Helena Helena (Antônio Almeida / Constantino Silva “Secundino”) — Fechei a Porta (Sebastião Mota / Ferreira dos Santos) — Pra Seu Governo (Haroldo Lobo / Milton de Oliveira) — Na Cadencia do Samba (Ataulfo Alves / Paulo Gesta) — Samba do Saci (Oswaldo Nunes / Lino Roberto) — O Samba É Bom Assim (Norival Reis / Hélio Nascimento) — Despedida de Mangueira (Benedito Lacerda / Aldo Cabral)

The remaining artists selected by Quartin and Gebara are: Quarteto em Cy, Luiz Carlos Vinhas, Chico Feitosa, Eumir Deodato, Sergio Ricardo, Bossa Tres, Moacyr Santos and Ana Margarida.

Paulo Vanzolini – Por Ele Mesmo (1979)

30 10 2011

Link original: Paulo Vanzolini – Por Ele Mesmo (1979)
Publicado em: Tuesday, November 28, 2006 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Night! Let’s start today with an unique record that has been with me for at least 2 months and probably the contribution that spent more time on the waiting list. By the way what a contribution and what a contributor, this is Paulo Vanzolini – Por Ele Mesmo (1979), for Eldorado, kindly sent to zecalouro by the might Joao Parahyba from the anthological Trio Mocoto.

Joao, blame it on zecalouro, your record was very useful to my self-education on using those complicated computer programs to remove clicks and clacks from audio files. Mother told me to never complaint on a friend gift and that’s what I have been doing; now it is ok! Thanks a million Joao and my apologies for the long delay. Thanks also Janja, which is Joao son, member of Sambex, a Samba Rock band that you probably known with I’m including a picture sent by Janja at this post end.

This record is amazing. I’m not an authority on Paulo Vanzolini music, but I think this is his first and only solo LP. AMG bio is provided for a better understanding of this great Brazilian artist, which is one of the main figures of Samba in Sao Paulo state. Tracks are included just bellow the bios.

Paulo Vanzolini, with Adoniran Barbosa, is acknowledged as the biggest representative of the samba of São Paulo. A physician by education (1947) and a zoologist (acknowledged internationally as one of the most eminent) by profession, Vanzolini nevertheless also kept bohemian habits throughout his youth and maturity, always having been connected with music and malandragem (street smarts). Having started to write sambas in the 1940s, soon he proved to be a talented verse improviser; his lyrics are chronicles both of the bohemian and urban São Paulo and of the upstate way of life. As a composer, his biggest hits are the samba “Volta por Cima,” launched in 1962 by Noite Ilustrada (and later re-recorded, among many others, by Maria Bethânia) and included in Gláuber Rocha’s O Dragão da Maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro (1969, with Rocha being awarded as the Best Director atthe Cannes Film Festival); and the samba-canção “Ronda,” written in 1945 and launched by Inesita Barroso in 1953, being highly popular until today and becoming an anthem of the city of São Paulo. The song became successful in Márcia’s re-recording in the 1960s, also recorded later by Maria Bethânia (on her LP Álibi, a top-seller of 1978), Nora Ney, Carmen Costa, and Ângela Maria, among others. In 1967, Vanzolini’s friend and partner Luís Carlos Paraná and Marcus Pereira produced for Fermata the LP Paulo Vanzolini: Onze Sambas e Uma Capoeira, on which Vanzolini’s songs were interpreted by Chico Buarque, Luís Carlos Paraná, and other artists.

Writing lyrics and melodies by himself, Vanzolini also had partnerships with Toquinho, in the mid-’60s, before the composer formed his duo with Vinícius de Moraes. In 1967, Vanzolini and Toquinho participated in the II Festival Internacional da Canção (International Song Festival, FIC, TV Globo) with one of those songs, “Na Boca da Noite,” winning the São Paulo stage. Vanzolini also had as partners Luís Carlos Paraná, Paulinho Nogueira, Adauto Santos, and Elton Medeiros. In 1974, Cristina Buarque named her first LP, Cara Limpa, after the title of a Paulo Vanzolini samba. The label Marcus Pereira launched in that same year the LP A Música de Paulo Vanzolini, interpreted by Carmen Costa and Paulo Marques. In 1997, Vanzolini was paid tribute at the University of São Paulo with a show which launched previously unpublished compositions like “Quando Eu For, Eu Vou Sem Pena.” Two years later, he was again paid homage during the commemorations of the 447th anniversary of the city of São Paulo in a show at the Sesc Pompéia hall. In 2001, Vanzolini’s complete works began to be recorded by selected interpreters for a four-CD box set.
