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?

This friend blows brass instruments and will be really pleased with this release, this is Carioca e Sua Orquestra de Metais – Sambas em Brasa (1961), for Musidisc, Maestro Carioca LPs are consistent from start to the end, full of swing with brass assembled as an orchestra.

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.

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.

This selection is another amazing Caetano Rodrigues contribution, Forma ’65 – Various Artists (1965), for Forma, the first out of two Forma releases with the artists on the cast.

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.

01 – Bandeira de Guerra (Paulo Vanzolini)
02 – Tempo e Espaço (Paulo Vanzolini)
03 – Raiz (Paulo Vanzolini)
04 – Samba Erudito (Paulo Vanzolini)

Hello, Good night! Let’s start the day with a Mr. X. contribution and also a singer that is being released for the first time at Loronix on a solo LP, this is Cyro Monteiro – Meu Samba, Minha Vida (1969), for Copacabana.

Meu Samba, Minha Vida was made on two different recording sessions with a one-year interval between both. The reason for this interruption was the passing of Astor Silva, musical director and trombonist for this session. This first recording session had also the participation of O Regional de Canhoto. The first recording session tracks are: Deus me Perdoe, Rosa Mandou, Jambete and Moreninha Boa.

The second recording session had also the participation of O Regional de Canhoto on two tracks, Raul de Barros as trombonist and Dino and Meira as violonists. Cyro Monteiro was born in 1973 and has passed with the early age of 60. Vinicius de Moraes said that Cyro Monteiro was the greatest Brazilian popular singer of all times. Tracks include:

I have a special admiration for all Brazilian Maestros we have at Loronix and Lyrio Panicali is among my favorites. This LP, recorded for US market, is probably unknown by many friends in Brazil, Lyrio Panicali and His Orchestra – Brazil, New Dimensions in Sound (1968), for United Artists, I cannot confirm right now if the record session was taken in Brazil or in the US. This one should not be confused with the fantastic Nova Dimensao, released in 1965 for Odeon.

This is not only an Orchestra album, there are voices and lyrics in some tracks, Clara Nunes at his pre-samba ages, recognized for her collaboration with Lyrio Panicali sings on tracks Insensatez and A Felicidade. Silvio Cesar also makes his contribution singing tracks Dindi and Apelo. The repertoire is based on Bossa Nova standards, another unique release provided by Caetano Rodrigues. Tracks include:

01 – Aranjuez, Mon Amour
02 – Upa Neguinho
03 – Insensatez – with Clara Nunes
04 – Carolina
05 – Tem Mais Samba
06 – Dindi – with Silvio Cesar

…and the blue bird has flown again, thanks for another nice release Arara Azul, this is Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gorme e Luiz Bonfa – Steve & Eydie, Bonfa & Brazil (1967), for Columbia, a not “standard” Luiz Bonfa release, recorded with the American singers duet Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme.

Actually, this is a Steve & Eydie recorded with Bonfa compositions and accompaniment. The cover artwork is wonderful and I cannot resist to share the only reading I have to it, two American singers smiling and very excited of being with a neutral Luiz Bonfa on a recording set, look at his face.

It is also amazing that this record is not listed on both Steve and Eydie biographies at AMG, anyway it is a great record and Bonfa takes part with his guitar in all tracks, which includes:

01 – Rio de Janeiro
02 – Dream My Dream
03 – It’s Love Sweet Love
04 – A Day In The Life Of a Fool (Manhã de Carnaval) (Luis Bonfá / Antônio Maria)
05 – Sweet Talk (Whistle Samba)

I have been trying to keep my willing to post a Samba or Bossa Jazz record per day and I think that today we will have another great release; this is Rio 65 Trio – A Hora e a Vez da M.P.M (1965), for Philips, the second and last LP from this wonderful instrumental combo from the 60’s.

You are probably a big fan of the last Rio 65 release and I do not need to detail what you have in front of you, just remember that Rio 65 Trio is Edison Machado (drums), Dom Salvador (piano) and Sergio Barroso (bass). Probably, Loronix friend will ask what is M.P.M., it is just the short form of Musica Popular Moderna. This release was recently reissued and took me by surprise last week for being out of print again. Tracks include:

01 – Cartão de Visita (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Deve Ser Bonito (João Mello / Lenora)
03 – Simplesmente (Édison Lobo)
04 – Apelo (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)

One of the things that I learn with Loronix is to have a great respect and admiration to Brazilian Samba Rock enthusiasts. They are different, really. They know how to live in community, respecting each other with no rivalities and a great willing to collaborate with each other. Mr. G. provides this release that is my personal tribute to the Samba Rock scene, the bands, the musicians and the fans. You are great.

You will be thrilled with this Mr. G. release, this is Pau Brasil – Pau Brasil (1980), for Continental, not to be confused with the Jazz band from Rio de Janeiro, this Pau Brasil is from Brazilian South, Rio Grande do Sul state. They have released two LPs, the first in 1978 as O Samba e Suas Origens. Pau Brasil is Bedeu (acoustic guitar and percussion), Alexandre (acoustic guitar and bass) and Leleco (pandeiro and timbales), the production is in charge of Marcus Vinicius and artistic direction is from a well-known artist from Tropicalismo years, Manoel Barenbein. Thanks Mr. G for this release and complimentary information. Tracks include:

I cannot evaluate if you had fun with the last Trio Surdina release, but I think it is reasonable to make another try, now taking a very old release.This is Trio Surdina – Ouvindo Trio Surdina Volume 1 (1953), for Musidisc, provided by the mighty Mr. X., this is perhaps the oldest LP released at Loronix, actually, not a LP, but a 10′.

This LP has the well-known line up with Garoto (guitar), Fafa Lemos (violin) and Chiquinho (accordion), all tracks are Brazilian folklore compositions.

I don’t known what a the tricks used by Mr. X. to bring us a such a perfect cover artwork, amazingly beautiful for a record released more than 50 years ago. This release has the bit rate of 96Kbps on a small 15Mb package, I would like to explain again that this is a MP3Pro release with an output close and sometimes better than a 192Kbps standard MP3. Tracks include:

01 – Prenda Minha (Tradicional)
02 – Peixe Vivo (Tradicional)

Hello, Good Night! What a hot summer day in Rio de Janeiro. I have a problem with high temperatures, maybe my blood pressure falls, I don’t known. zecalouro likes that. The days are longer, especially with daylight savings. He uses to take daily baths in summertime, he loves bath. I’m now trying to verse him on classic music and it seems he will become a great enthusiast, especially with the operas that he tries to sing together. It is awesome the extent of the parrot voice, he can do perfect the extreme soprano acute from the deepest baritone bass.

Why I’m telling this kind of story, perhaps the heat is melting my brain, anyway.

The last and first Vinicius de Moraes release was a surprise, great success and acceptance. I was reluctant to release that record, there is a sad atmosphere with that cover that disturbs me. This one is different, all about happiness, meet Vinicius de Moraes e Toquinho – Toquinho & Vinicius (1974), for Philips and produced by Paulinho Tapajos. Vinicius had a long partnership with Toquinho, releasing several records. This released why suggested by SilverSun at Loronix Forum, thanks SilverSun. Tracks include:

01 – Como É Duro Trabalhar (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Samba da Volta (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)

This is the first out of several LPs that Caetano Rodrigues kindly sent to zecalouro today to release at Loronix. I spent myself today like a little kid locked at a chocolate factory, completely lost among several choices. Tomorrow, I will post on Loronix Forum a picture with the overall collection together. Since we are going through a series of posts, there is a new post icon to identify Caetano’s contributions. I never get tired to thanks Caetano about his willing and sharing spirit.

Starting the first out of many, Caetano’s pick for today is Bossa Tres – Os Bossa Tres e Seus Amigos (1965), for Audio Fidelity, the last recording of Bossa Tres with it’s original line-up, which is Luiz Carlos Vinhas (piano), Edison Machado (drums) and Tiao Neto (bass). Bossa Tres has special guests to this session (amigos), they are Sonny Simmons (sax alto), Clifford Jordan (sax tenor and flauta) and Prince Lasha (flute).

I have never heard this LP and my first feeling is that we will have a lot to talk about it. Tracks include:

01 – Bottles (Luis Carlos Vinhas / Édison Machado / Tião Neto)
02 – Blue Monk (Thelonious Monk)
03 – Love For Sale (Cole Porter)
04 – Cuttie (Sonny Rollins)

We have now a nice Samba Jazz record and the first release at Loronix of the Brazilian Clarinetist Case with the LP Case e Seu Conjunto – Samba Irresistivel (1961), for Bervely, a second issue from the original by Hi-Fi Variety Hi-Fi (1960).

Case is a well-known Brazilian clarinetist, unfortunately, biography and complimentary information about him is almost non-existent. Actually, the information available is contradictory, for instance: Case e Seu Conjunto personnel is Case, Amilton Godoy, Adilson Godói, Denise Dumont, Bill e Magrinho, but some sources says that musicians at this record session were Casé, Heraldo do Monte, Paulo Lima, Xu Vianna, Dirceu and Corisco.

I do not have a indication about the correct personnel listing, but if you take this LP you will see that this is a great album performed by grownups such like Corisco and Heraldo do Monte. Anyway, this is a minor detail taking in consideration the great music. Tracks include:

01 – Se Acaso Você Chegasse (Lupicínio Rodrigues / Felisberto Martins)
02 – Carinho e Amor (Tito Madi)
03 – Palpite Infeliz (Noel Rosa)
04 – Feitio de Oração (Noel Rosa / Vadico)

Publicado em: Friday, November 24, 2006 by zecalouro

Hello, good night! This post has been planned for more than a few weeks. It is not the kind of record that you use to see at Loronix, but has a special meaning to zecalouro and I could not resist sharing.

There are several important “personal” facts surrounding this record. It was the first one that I could buy using my own money. I knew it by surprise while stepping out of a bus on a given hot week, capturing my attention at a first sight. It was also very useful to help myself on first steps toward guitar playing. It has been more than 30 years since my first hearing and this is one of the most soulful, sincere, captivating and emotional singing interpretation I could ever see in my life.

This is Fagner – Manera Fru-Fru, Manera (1973), for Philips, the first LP of this underrated Brazilian artist. There are several curious stories about this LP and I will pick up just one. As soon as the record was released, Cecilia Meirelles relatives went to court to complain about the partnership of Fagner with Cecilia Meirelles song, Canteiros, as far as I known, one of the most popular Fagner tunes of all time. The LP was reissued at the same year with another track “Cavalo Ferro”, replacing Canteiros. This release is the original issue.

I hope that you will take this release with special attention since zecalouro does not use to express his feelings about an LP on such particular way. Please give us your feedback. Perhaps I’m moved with the records we received today by Caetano Rodrigues. |smile|

For the fans of Nara Leao, a special gift, she is singing with Fagner on two wonderful tracks making a nice duet with Fagner’s harsh voice. Tracks include. Sorry, last minute info: you will note that track 3 has the name Penas do Tie, Philips mistake, this song is called “Voce” and was composed in 1928 by Hekel Tavares / Nair Mesquita.

01 – Último Pau-de-arara (Venâncio / Corumba / José Guimarães)
02 – Nasci Para Chorar (Born To Cry) (Dion / Dimucci / Vrs. Erasmo Carlos)
03 – Você (Hekel Tavares / Nair Mesquita / Adpt. Fagner) with Nara Leao

This post is in response to the great reception we had on the last Quarteto em Cy release, the album Querelas do Brasil. It is incredible that Quarteto em Cy releases from the 70’s are more popular than the earlier ones from the 60’s.

Taking advantage of this momentum, let me introduce Quarteto em Cy – Quarteto em Cy (1972), for Odeon, recorded after a hiatus that started in 1970, lasting two years. This album also landmarks a new line-up with Cyva, Cynara, Sonia and the first recording participation of Dorinha Tapajós.

This formation did not change in the following eight years and the last change was in 1980, with Dorinha Tapajos leaving the quartet to be replaced by Cybele, line-up that remains unchanged since them. This album has the participation of Dorival Caymmi on track 11, Canto de Oba. Tracks include:

This is Wilson Miranda debut at Loronix, his first release. I will be open and honest, this is my first experience with Wilson Miranda, a Brazilian singer that started his career in the late 50’s with a repertoire based on calypsos, beguines and some romantic rocks. I’m not sure if Wilson Miranda had some association with Jovem guarda, since he changed his style to a romantic oriented singer in the golden Jovem Guarda years.

I have decided by this pick, Wilson Miranda – A Outra Face de Wilson Miranda (1964), for Chantecler, due the participation of Roberto Menescal e Seu Conjunto that accompanies Wilson Miranda on all tracks. Wilson Miranda is also a composer, although this LP does not have his compositions. It is always a great pleasure to introduce a new artist to Loronixers and I hope this is a nice choice. Tracks include:

01 – Minha Namorada (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Naná (Moacir Santos / Mário Telles)
03 – Adriana (Roberto Menescal / Luis Fernando Freire)
04 – Não Faz Assim (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini)
05 – Mar Azul (Francis Hime / João Vitório)

Hello, Good Night! I’m now convinced that the recordings of anthological Bossa Nova concerts are endless. Really. We had already wonderful releases, such as the Au Bon Gourmet show, Gemini V, among several other pearls.

Actually, I had the MP3 versions of this one on a very low quality and I was reluctant to share because this is one of my favorites. When yesterday, without knowing, the mighty Zub Zub from Magic of JuJu sent this fresh rip by his own. Thanks Zub Zub, your picks are always stunning and your rips, failure proof.

This is A Bossa no Paramount – Various Artists (1965), for RGE, a live Bossa Nova concert recorded at Teatro Paramount, Sao Paulo, 1964. You will have eight classic Bossa Nova tunes performed by Marcos Valle, Elis Regina, Vinicius de Moraes, Paulinho Nogueira, Wanda Sa, Oscar Castro Neves, Zimbo Trio, Quarteto em Cy and Alaide Costa. We can’t go wrong with this team. Tracks include:

Publicado em: Wednesday, November 22, 2006 by zecalouro

I’m probably taking all Loronix friends by surprise with this release. Olivia Byington was never mentioned or requested before. So, get yourself ready for the debut LP of Olivia Byington – Corra o Risco (1978), for Continental.

Olivia is also well-know by the fans of the amazing Brazilian progressive rock scene from the 70’s due her vocal participations with the band A Barca do Sol that revealed the renowned musician Jacques Morelenbaum. Corra o Risco is considered by some reviewers as one of a A Barca do Sol releases. This record has also the participation of John Neschling on track 10.

Corra o Risco is a self explanatory LP, an always nice Brazilian singer debut, accompanied by the symphonic progressive rock of a legendary band. This LP was first available at Acesso Raro and this material is probably from that first release. Thanks Acesso Raro, you are out of the business but still lives on our minds. Tracks include, sorry, do not miss AMG bio bellow:

Olívia Byington is a praised and awarded Brazilian singer who has worked with such artists as Tom Jobim, Silvio Rodriguez, Djavan, Clara Sverner, Wagner Tiso, Chico Buarque, Turíbio Santos, Radamés Gnattali, João Carlos Assis Brasil, Paulo Moura, and Egberto Gismonti.

Trio 3-D – O Trio 3-D Convida (1965)

Link original: Trio 3-D – O Trio 3-D Convida (1965)

This record is really great, my only problem is the cover with these armed military men, but this is a minor issue. Just to remember, the first Trio 3-D release at Loronix was that one with the guys standing at the keyboard of a giant piano, all black with Trio 3-D on a yellow and very modern typeface. Actually, I’m never 100% happy.

Anyway, it is Trio 3-D, instrumental Bossa Jazz from the 60’s with the LP Trio 3-D – O Trio 3-D Convida (1965), for RCA. Trio 3-D at this released is Antônio Adolfo (piano), Carlinhos Monjardin (bass) and Nelsinho (drums). But what make this LP different are the special guests Raul de Barros (trombone), Ed. Maciel (trombone), Paulo Moura (sax alto) and Meirelles (Sax tenor). The arrangements are from Trio 3-D leader, Antonio Adolfo, the exceptions are tracks 7 and 12, arranged by Eumir Deodato. Tracks include:

01 – Água de Beber (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – My Heart Stood Still (Lorenz Hart / Richard Rogers)
03 – Preciso Aprender a Ser Só (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
04 – Tamanco no Samba (Orlann Divo / Hélton Menezes)
05 – Reza (Edu Lobo / Ruy Guerra)
06 – Batucada Surgiu (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
07 – Só Tinha de Ser Com Você (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
08 – Minha Namorada (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – Tema 3-d (Antônio Adolfo)
10 – Bye Bye Blackbird (Hay Anderson)
11 – O Passarinho (Chico Feitosa / Luis Fernando Freire)
12 – Peter Samba (Durval Ferreira / Maurício Einhorn)

Heitor Villa Lobos – Forest of the Amazon (1959) with with the Symphony of The Air and Bidu Sayao – Soprano

25 10 2011

Moving forward with the Musicians Day celebration I would like to make a small interruption on Loronix style to present a LP of an artist that cannot be left behind on any Brazilian Music celebration. Take a time to hear this LP, a truly amazing tribute to the Amazon Rainforest; this is Heitor Villa Lobos – Forest of the Amazon (1959) with the Symphony of The Air (NBC Symphony Orchestra) and Bidu Sayao – Soprano.

This is a long time David Federman recommendation that I was saving for an appropriate day, today. I could hit my keyboard for hours writing about Villa Lobos and Bidu Sayao, but it is better to keep it short. Forest of the Amazon was one of Heitor Villa Lobos last works, he was very ill on his last years, but he could orchestrate the entire piece and even coach Bidu Sayao for a best performance. Anyway, do not forget to tell us what are your feelings about the first Classical Loronix release. Tracks include:

01 – Overture
02 – Deep In the Forest
03 – Excitement Among the Indians
04 – First Bird Song
05 – Nature’s Dance
06 – Second Bird Song
07 – (Vocalise)
08 – Sails
09 – On the Way To the Hunt
10 – Third Bird Song
11 – Twilight Song
12 – The Indians In Search of the Girl
13 – Fourth Bird Song
14 – Rima’s Music
15 – Head Hunters
16 – Love Song
17 – Sentimental Melody
18 – Forest Fire
29 – (Finale)


Não tinha este disco, porém graças ao amigo Andreas, ele hoje está disponível no Um que Tenha.  Parece que existem pelo menos mais duas capas para este disco, que seguem abaixo:


Special Post | A Tribute to Musicians Day – Baden Powell Mosaic

Link original: Special Post | A Tribute to Musicians Day – Baden Powell Mosaic
Publicado em: Wednesday, November 22, 2006 by zecalouro

This is Loronix tribute to Musicians Day. I was with a friend today that is a graphic designer. I told him about the musician day in Brazil and he had the idea to make a photo mosaic of an artist based on Loronix LP covers. He told me how to do it and it was really simple, I took a Baden Powell picture and a collection of more than 5,000 LP images – cover, back covers, labels – that were stored on my hard disk.

He has a software that makes the correct decisions picking up individuals tiles among the 5,000 images collection and assembles it on a grid building this output that you can see above at low-res and you will have a lot of fun downloading the 2048 x 2048 original picture here (no rapidshare, direct link to image) to inspect what covers were used to build the picture.
