This is a nice record that is only here because I got amazed with this cover on Caetano’s Bossa Nova book and I could track it down for Loronixers. In my opinion one of the greatest cover I have ever seen, very representative, with someone throwing away some records in favor of our lovely Bossa Nova, very funny.

Meet, The Singers Inc. – Bossa Nova! (1963), for Valiant, as people use to say, very groovy and nice vocals by George Tipton, Ian Feebairn-Smith, Perry Botkin Jr., James Bryant (The Singers Inc.), backed by Howard Roberts (guitar), Don Shelton (sax), Lyle Ritz (bass) and Larry Bunker, Milt Holland, Jerry Williams, Emil Richards, Chico Guerrero (percussion). Let’s wait for Loronixers’ feedback on this release. Tracks include:

01 – Liebestraum
02 – You Stepped out of a Dream
03 – Volare
04 – Where or When
05 – In a Little Spanish Town
06 – What you Come Home, Bill Baily
07 – Ja-Da
08 – Could Have Danced all Night
09 – Bye Bye Blues
10 – Man’selle
11 – So Rare
12 – Baubles, Bangles and Beads


Não tinha este disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Amilcar e Martoni, ele hoje está disponível na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

Hello, Good Night! It is hard to remember after some months, since the first Waldir Calmon LP out of his two “Arpege” series was made available at Loronix. I remember that time that someone came to me saying that his father, as a long time fan of Waldir Calmon, was really amazed to hear that record after several years and that he would me really thrilled if he could get the second one.

I did not forget this thing, Loronix was at the beginning and I got really impressed to make someone available on such way. That’s the reason for Waldir Calmon e Seu Conjunto – Uma Noite no Arpege Nr.2 (1957), for Radio. It’s a nice record, perhaps such like it was the music performed by Waldir Calmon on his Arpege nightclub. I was reluctant to share this LP; it was taken from a vinyl full of scratches that are still audible. However, the scratches do not spoil the experience. Tracks include:

01 – Samba no Arpège (Waldir Calmon / Luis Bandeira)
02 – Fantasia Carioca (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / Osvaldo Santiago)
03 – Apito no Samba (Luis Bandeira)
04 – Inspiração (Bruno Marnet)
05 – Foi Despacho (Sereno)
06 – Evocação (Nelson Ferreira)
07 – Dorinha Meu Amor (José Francisco de Freitas)
08 – Arrasta a Sandália (Osvaldo Marques / Benedito Lacerda)
09 – Jalousie (J. Gade)
10 – Adios Pampa Mia (Francisco Canaro / Mariano Mores / Pelay)
11 – Bicharada (Djalma Ferreira)
12 – Mambo En España (R. Marques)

Thelma Soares, Thelma, back to Loronix with her first US release, kindly provided by Caetano Rodrigues. The first Thelma LP is already here and the feedback was great. Let’s see what happens with this one. Meet, Thelma – The Haunting New Voice From Brazil (N/A), for Columbia, a record that I could not identify the exactly release date and probably is uncertain for many.

By the time of Thelma first release at Loronix, her debut LP with the participation of Vinicius de Moraes, some friends thought that this LP was an international release with the same tracks, actually this is different and I invite you to check how it is. Tracks include:

01 – Samba do Carioca
02 – Samba de Uma Nota Só
03 – Corcovado
04 – Camará
05 – Chega de Mentira
06 – Garota de Ipanema
07 – Desafinado
08 – Deus Brasileiro
09 – Samba de Roda da Bahia
10 – Deixa
11 – Insensatez

Som Ambiente – Som Ambiente (1972)

I made some research about this LP almost a year ago and for an unknown reason I forgot its existence to consider as a post. Came back to memory last year, actually, last Friday, and it is so cool that I decided to show to Loronixer with no other additional research.

Maybe I’m wrong but, Som Ambiente – Som Ambiente (1972), for CID, is in fact some sort of Azymuth embryo/early stage. I’m not sure about the whole personnel listing, but I have the assumption that Jose Roberto Bertrami organ can be heard in all tracks. The back cover says that Durval Ferreira is in charge of Artistic Direction. Another curiosity about this LP is a supposed photo of the legendary Marcos Valle at the front cover, that guy on a restaurant with a girl. If any Loronix friend has additional info about this release, please let us know. Tracks include:

01 – O Bofe (Erasmo Carlos / Roberto Carlos)
02 – Here’s That Rainy Day (J. Burke / J. V. Heusen)
03 – Bossa Nova In Broadway (Dave Brubeck)
04 – They Long To Be (Close To You) (H. Davis / Burt Bacharach) — People (Funny Girl) (B. Merrill / J. Styne) — Mr Lucky (Henry Mancini)
05 – Love Theme From “The Godfather” (Speak Softly Love) (Nino Rota / L. Kusik)
06 – Where Is The Love (J. Dorn / A. Mardin)
07 – Águas de Março (Tom Jobim) — Bala Com Bala (Aldir Blanc / João Bosco)
08 – Theme From “Summer Of 42” (Michel Legrand / A. Bergman / M. Bergman)
09 – By The Time I Get To Phoenix (J. Webb) — The Shadow Of Your Smile (J. Madel / Paul Francis Webster)
10 – Days Of Wine And Roses (Henry Mancini / Mercer) — Satin Doll (Duke Ellington) — April In Paris (H. Duke) — Lill’darling (N. Hefty)
11 – Live For Life (F. Lai / Norman Gimbel) — Someday My Prince Will Come (Churchill / Morey)

Jean Kelson e Sua Orquestra – Berimbau & Bigorrilho (1964)

This is another one sent by a friend that I could not give the attention needed. This friend is not a Loronixer, so I have been postponing this LP for months. In fact, the new try I gave to it last week was born by the several wonderful orchestra LPs sent by Caetano Rodrigues in the last two months. Thanks to Caetano Rodrigues, zecalouro hears is now well trained to Orchestras.

This is Jean Kelson e Sua Orquestra – Berimbau & Bigorrilho (1964), for Copacabana, really nice piece of instrumental orchestra album with a proposition to blend orchestra arrangements with two peculiar percussion instruments, berimbau and bigorrilho. Nice idea, but the outcome is something close to bossa jazz with brass with foreground, mainly trombones.

Several doubts I have about this record should be solved with personnel listing, which I have been trying to track down with no success. Tracks include:

01 – Berimbau (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Samba de Negro (Roberto Corrêa / Sylvio Son)
03 – Catolé (Murillo Latini / Bob Nelson)
04 – Munganga (Jean Kelson / Almeida Rego)
05 – Agô Agô (Milton Castro / Glória Felipe)
06 – Vou Pra Senzala (Milton Castro / Aloísio Santana)
07 – Bigorrilho (Sebastião Gomes / Paquito / Romeu Gentil)
08 – Saci Pererê (Rildo Hora / Marcos André)
09 – Vamos Bigorrilhar (Roberto Corrêa / Sylvio Son)
10 – Dança do Bigorrilho (Astor Silva / Othon Russo)
11 – Jogado Fora (João Mello)
12 – Na Base do Bigorrilho (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / Nazareno de Brito)

Feliz 2007! (incluindo novidades sobre o Zeca)

27 11 2011

Os mais atentos devem ter notado que acabamos de publicar a última postagem de 2006. Até o momento foram 658 postagens, incluindo discos vindos do site atual do Loronix e aqueles que não estão mais no ar, mas foram encontrados na Internet Wayback Machine.  Vamos entrar no ano em que há o maior número de postagens: sem contar as que somente se encontram na Internet Wayback Machine, o site atual indica 1156 postagens em 2007.

Durante as próximas semanas devo reduzir o ritmo de publicação, pois as minhas atividades de final de ano estão absorvendo quase todo o meu tempo. Mas, assim que der, volto ao número habitual de postagens.

Feliz 2007 para todos  🙂 !


PS: para quem está curioso sobre o destino do Zecalouro, ontem foi publicado um tributo ao Zeca e ao Loronix no Global Groove.  Entre outras coisas, o Moos (proprietário do blog) diz que conseguiu falar com ele na semana passada, que o Zeca está bem e que voltou a trabalhar como músico. Verifiquem a postagem aqui


PosPS: o próprio Zeca apareceu por lá hoje (29/11) e deixou o seu comentário!


Pos-PosPS: o Martoni também recebeu um e-mail do Zeca (30/11) – .
