That’s it. The feedback received from Muchacho nas Bocas, Hermeto Pascoal Video and Miscelanea Vanguardiosa PodCast was really great. I’m happy when Loronixers are pleased with zecalouro’s posts. However, zecalouro pleases Loronixers and Caetanon Rodrigues drives people crazy, let’s get back on track with another fine release sponsored by Caetano Rodrigues, The Great.

This is Lalo Schifrin & Bob Brookmeyer – Samba para Dos (1963), for Verve. Someone said before that Lalo Schifrin early works dedicated to the Bossa Nova repertoire were worth to dig. I can’t remember the friend’s name and he was absolutely right. This is a very nice record with the piano of Lalo Schifrin and the trombone of Bob Brookmeyer supported by renowned artists, such as Phil Woods, Al Cohn and others. Overall personnel makes more that an accompaniment, they have also the spotlights with several solos throughout the record. Thanks for it, Caetano, people should be really amazed by this album. Tracks include:


Romeo Penque
Ben Tucker
Phil Woods
(sax alto)
Al Cohn
(sax tenor)
Danny Bank
(sax baritone)
Lalo Schifrin
Bob Brookmeyer
(piano, trombone)
Jimmy Raney
Jerome Richardson
(sax tenor)
Leo Wright
(flute, sax alto)
Dave Bailey
Frank Rehak

Track List

01 – Samba para Dos
02 – What Kind of Fool Am I
03 – I Get a Kick Out of You
04 – Just one of those Things
05 – Time After Time
06 – It’s All Right with Me

It has been a while we do not show something really nice from Hermeto Pascoal. I was wondering what would be a really unique Hermeto Pascoal music or video to show Loronixers. The answer came from our friend Ricardo Reston, which is the owner and maintainer of Miscelanea Vanguardiosa, a pioneer Brazilian Podcast devoted to instrumental music that you should not miss.

Ricardo is sending to Loronixers this music video bellow, showing Hermeto Pascoal in Argentina performing a amazing rendition of Libertango, from the legendary Astor Piazolla.

By the way, Miscelanea Vanguardiosa has started a series of Podcasts showing the music of Hermeto Pascoal from an historical perspective, such as those timelines we are used to see on Magazines. The first Podcast is already available, showing Hermeto Pascoal early years.

Make a visit to Miscelanea Vanguardiosa, here,, if you read English, here, and come back to watch this video, a real treat.

Hope uEnjoy!

Hello, Good Night! I’m starting today with this obscure LP that I was lucky to find on those R$1 bargains in Rio de Janeiro. In a first sight, the cover was not inspiring, but the record label was Equipe and the price given worth the enterprise. I use to wash all records I bought as soon as I get home, also playing a little bit of them. It was necessary to listen everything to recognize the sax of the legendary Moacyr Silva and the organ of Ed Lincoln. Later on I could double check on Sombras, a website that you should not miss, owned and maintained by Sergio Ximenes that has been for years serving one of the most complete Brazilian music discographies at the Internet. Sombras is

This is Muchacho nas Bocas – Um Sax Muito Louco (1973), for Equipe, a short and relaxed sax and organ duel by Moacyr Silva and Ed Lincon on top of a popular repertoire that you will recognize easy. Just a warning for perfectionists, the overall quality of the music is good, however, two tracks were marked by a deep scratch, still audible, but without spoiling the listening pleasure. Tracks include:

01 – Tem Capoeira
02 – Minha Viola
03 – Amor, Amor
04 – Desafio
05 – Ninguem Tasca (Gaviao)
06 – Se Ela Quer
07 – Mexe Mexe
08 – Esperancas Perdidas
09 – A Danca do Cafune
10 – Baba de Quiabo

Neco e o Seu Violao – Coquetel Bossa Nova (1963)

It was very hard to decide the end post of the day. I was on a conflict between two other choices, but when it comes to my attention that Caetano sent to us an additional Neco LP, the decision was taken on less then a second. Jean Yves (Jean do Trombone) will be very pleased to see Neco when he wakes up in the morning. Jean is a great friend of our community and had the chance to play and have a friendship with Neco. Jean said that besides being a unique guitarist, Neco is also a great human being. Thanks Caetano for the chance to present to Loronixers these really hard to find Neco solo releases.

This is Neco – Coquetel Bossa Nova (1963), for CBS. The first Neco solo album, although some reviewers takes Coquetel Bossa Nova as the second Neco album, taking the first as Samba Nova Concepcao (1963), widely associated as an Eumir Deodato LP. I need more clarification on this subject, share your thoughts at comments section, Tracks include:

01 – Jogado Fora (João Mello)
02 – Você (Rildo Hora / Clóvis Mello)
03 – Está Nascendo Um Samba (Tito Madi / Romeo Nunes)
04 – Se Chegou Assim (Othon Russo / Newton Ramalho)
05 – Ah Se Eu Pudesse (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
06 – Corcovado (Tom Jobim)
07 – Nós e o Mar (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
08 – Com o Amor Não Se Brinca (Romeo Nunes / Carlito)
09 – Tem Dó (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
10 – A Mesma Rosa Amarela (Capiba / Carlos Penna Filho)
11 – Triteza e Solidão (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – Sorriu Pra Mim (Garoto / Luis Cláudio)

Conjunto Balambossa – Samba ao Vivo

Caetano, please, stop! Please, don’t do it to zecalouro. Caetano knows that I get really nervous when I have to show Loronixers any LP from the Label Coledisc. They are pretty hard to speak about. Do yourself a search on Loronix Find It and check by yourself what is already available of Conjunto Balambossa, there are more than a few albums. What amazes myself is that nobody knows exactly the musicians on these disc, each one different from the other. That’s right Caetano, to write about Coledisc LPs is like to fly on a plane with no instruments.

This is Conjunto Balambossa – Samba ao Vivo (no date), for Coledisc. Taking in consideration Samba ao Vivo and previous Conjunto Balambossa LPs at Loronix, I feel confident to say that this is the best one, really dancing, with duels between organ and guitar. If you had fun with any previous Balambossas, do not hesitate to take this one. Coledisc label has some followers on this style of saying anything about their albums, such as Nilsen, Distac and the legendary Palladium from Minas Gerais, but nothing compares to Coledisc with the creation of this multi-purpose Conjunto Balambossa. Tracks include:

01 – Samba Triste (Baden Powell / Billy Blanco)
02 – Boato (João Roberto Kelly)
03 – Moeda Quebrada (Luis Reis / Haroldo Barbosa)
04 – Amor e Paz (Tito Madi)
05 – Volta (Luis Bandeira / Djalma Ferreira)
06 – Murmúrio (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio)
07 – Na Roda do Samba (Orlann Divo / Hélton Menezes)
08 – Dizem Por Aí (Manoel da Conceição / Alberto Paz)
09 – Fica Comigo (Luis Antônio)
10 – Falsa Baiana (Geraldo Pereira)
11 – Fiz o Bobão (Haroldo Barbosa / Luis Reis)
12 – Zelão (Sergio Ricardo)

Challenge and Music Video – Edison Machado Quarteto

Tuesday, March 06, 2007 by zecalouro

Today we will blend a challenge with a video, both provided by Luiz Harding. Let’s start with the challenge. Gentleman, who are the musicians at the photo you see on top. This is a Bossa Nova Trio from the 60’s. Does anybody know?


To end it up, Luiz sent us a video from this collection that is really unique, a excerpt of the movie Cinema é que se Faz featuring O Quarteto de Edison Machado, which is Edison Machado (drums), Aloisio Aguiar (piano) (*), Ion Muniz (sax) and Ricardo Pereira dos Santos (bass). Luiz had a hard time to present us an acceptable image. The video is dark, but the sound is good and you can see Edison Machado and others musicians very clear. Thanks for the gems Luiz.
Hope uEnjoy!

Here we go again with another release sponsored by Caetano Rodrigues, The Great. Caetano presents this time a female singer and I’m very confident that this post will be a treat for many Loronixers. It was a surprise to see the tremendous feedback given to Pat Thomas and I hope that Joni James hits the same honors gave by Loronixers to Pat Thomas. Let’s check another Caetano’s gem.

This is Joni James – Bossa Nova Style (1965), for MGM. Hearing Joni James, I sure that you will remember the anthological Julie is her Name, by Julie London. Joni James seems to be from the same school and her interpretation of Bossa Nova is really different. I like Joni James singing and this is a very pleasant LP. Thanks for this one Caetano. Tracks include:

01 – Dindi
02 – I Could Have Danced All Night
03 – September Song
04 – My Foolish Heart
05 – I Wish You Love
06 – While We’re Young
07 – I Understand
08 – The Girl from Ipanema
09 – Guilty
10 – Once I Loved
11 – My Romance
12 – You’re Nearer
