When I research for Baden Powell info, the first and only place I go is the great BrazilOnGuitar, a free project, better, a love project to Baden Powell memory. I can live ten times and I would not make better and with the passion we have at their Opus. That’s why I’m asking their help to describe another Baden Powell album.

This is Baden Powell – Baden Powell Quartet Vol. 2 (1971), for Barclay. Visiting BrazilOnGuitar I learned that Baden Powell Quartet volumes one to three were recorded on a single session during three days in December 1970. We have already Vol. 3 at Loronix and now it is time to present Vol. 2. BrazilOnGuitar description is just bellow, followed by personnel. Tracks include:

Brazil-on-Guitar description

In December 1970s of the threepart series were recorded within three days in the Barclay studio. They are the best and final recordings of the quartet with its original members. The focus here is on Afro-Brazilian music, though not as conceptually closed as on “Canto on Guitar”. There are Folklore and own compositions, as well as variations of “Pai” and “Filho”.

The almost ten minutes lasting “Terra de Katmandou” is a mixture of many styles, citations and rhythms, creating a trancelike, meditative mood.

The records contribute to the image of the guitarist until today due to their high musical level and their fresh sound. His improvisational talent doesn’t need shallow virtuosity, which tends to cover weak spots and lacking imagination. Consistently Baden Powell takes up new ideas, new lines and rejects others.

For the first time he works together with the singer Janine de Waleyne, after discovering her in the choir of Adamo. Janine’s voice merges with the melody lines of Baden’s guitar playing. Her adapdability is impressive. The non-verbality between their voices, unbound of language, opens much freedom for the music. Something Baden Powell consistently searched and found in 1970.

We thank Robert G. (Germany) for his translation.

I’m pleased to announce that our effort to find the front and back cover of Altamiro Carrilho debut album, Altamiro Carrilho e Sua Flauta Azul (1958) were successful. Once again, International Restored LP folks and the Loronixer Carlao put their hands to work to contact Romulo, who was responsible for making the scans and send an email to zecalouro today.

This announcement is being made to thank everybody who joined forces on this initiative, a major accomplish of our community. I’m gathering the full story tomorrow and an improved scan to appreciation of all Loronixers. All credits should be given to Romulo. Stay tuned to forthcoming news.

Now it is time to think about a new and exciting challenge to our community.

Fafa Lemos – Trio do Fafa (1958)

Link original: Fafa Lemos – Trio do Fafa (1958)
Publicado em: Wednesday, April 11, 2007 by zecalouro

This album is from a time when Brazilian instrumental music was a mass audience product and features one of the most important musicians from the 40’s to 70’s, Fafa Lemos, an artist that recorded several solo releases and played with almost all the Brazilian stars of that time.

This is Fafa Lemos – Trio do Fafa (1958), for RCA Victor. Unfortunately, the album cover does not have personnel information and we can only “guess” Trio do Fafa members. I think members were not revealed due legal issue since both are outlined at front cover. Fafa Lemos recorded his last album with Carolina Cardoso de Menezes in 1989 and passed away at the age of 83, in 2004. Tracks include:

01 – Un Violino Nel Mio Cuore (Meu Coração É Um Violino) (Laparcerie / Rastelli)
02 – Saudades da Bahia (Dorival Caymmi)
03 – Cem Mil Réis (Noel Rosa / Vadico)
04 – Emília (Wilson Batista / Haroldo Lobo)
05 – Morena Boca de Ouro (Ary Barroso)
06 – Solução (Raul Sampaio / Ivo Santos)
07 – No Mar Negro (L. Rodi)
08 – Fantasma do Cajú (Berico / Franco Ferreira)
09 – Silêncio de Um Minuto (Noel Rosa)
10 – Lá Vem a Baiana (Dorival Caymmi)
11 – Se Acaso Você Chegasse (Lupicínio Rodrigues / Felisberto Martins)
12 – Fracassos de Amor (Tito Madi / Milton Silva)

Hello, Good Evening! I had a great day and I hope you had also. Loronix engineers finally reach a conclusion to pick up the winner of our survey. I will make a checkpoint with Loronix engineers in 15 minutes to wrap-up the procedures, which will be announced tomorrow. If you did not engage the survey, don’t miss the chance, here. Stay tuned for further instructions tomorrow.

Now I have only 10 minutes and I hope to finish this post before the meeting. This is a movie from 1949 and the challenge is the identification of the singer, group and one of its members, a renowned Brazilian artist.

Challenge, tell us who is this female singer, the group and one of its members, a famous Brazilian artist. This is one of the greatest challenges ever at Loronix.

Hope uEnjoy!

Victor Assis Brasil Quarteto – Pedrinho (1980)

Link na Internet Wayback Machine: Victor Assis Brasil Quarteto – Pedrinho (1980)
Publicado em: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 2007


One of the things that makes me feel more disturbed when I take a Victor Assis Brasil album for a hearing is the exercise I make to realize what direction his music would take in these 26 years, since he passed away prematurely at the age of 37. The last Victor Assis Brasil album was sent by Caetano, Desenhos, his debut LP and now we are showing Pedrinho, his last album from 1980.

This is Victor Assis Brasil Quarteto – Pedrinho (1980), for EMI Odeon. It is a shame this album has gone out of print. Pedrinho is considered by jazz fans as the best album released by Victor Assis Brasil. I’m making a video this time with several images of Victor taken of a Brazilian TV documentary; if someone has additional Victor Assis Brasil videos, feel free to write comments and share with our community. Tracks include:

PersonnelVictor Assis Brasil

02 – Nada Será Como Antes (Milton Nascimento / Ronaldo Bastos)

05 – Penedo (Victor Assis Brasil)
06 – O Cantador (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta)
07 – Night And Day (Cole Porter)

This is Victor Assis Brasil Quarteto – Pedrinho (1980), at Loronix.

Secos & Molhados – Secos & Molhados (1973)

Link original: Secos & Molhados – Secos & Molhados (1973)
Publicado em: Wednesday, April 11, 2007 by zecalouro

I was very reluctant to release this post, since Loronix first day. This is not the music that we are used to see on this little space. However, they are part of Brazilian popular music history and if you neglect them you are not telling the true story. I love these guys; they were part of my childhood opening up my mind to another kind of music.

This album sold 700,000 copies in 1973. We can say that Secos & Molhados was a revolutionary band, making the bridge between Bossa Nova, Tropicalismo until the embryo of Brazilian Rock. They released two albums and then were dissolved. Perhaps the story of Brazilian Rock would be completely different if they move further. Let’s see what we have here.

This is Secos & Molhados – Secos & Molhados (1973), for Copacabana. I will take Alvaro Neder review from AMG to describe this album, take a special attention on how they mix electric guitars with Brazilian percussion on unique arrangements. The bass playing is superb with arrangements by the friends Joao Ricardo and Gerson Conrad. I’m making a video with two big hits from this album, Sangue Latino and O Vira. Don’t let these tunes cheat you, they are only the most popular tunes and do not preview the full album. Tracks include:

AMG Review

This is the debut album from the group Secos e Molhados. It was a boom from the start, and several tracks became overnight hits throughout Brazil. Ney Matogrosso, the lead singer, took the hearts of Brazilian people with his ambivalent sexual identity, his sopranino voice, and extravagant adornments. It was natural that he departed for a highly successful solo career one year after this release, which has since then been converted in a cult album, until today tenderly regarded and played through Brazil. The members had no connection with Tropicália, which had occurred almost ten years before, but the album is a direct product of that movement. The kaleidoscope of rhythms, from American blues to the Portuguese “vira,” melted in pop renditions with plenty of overdriven guitars and Brazilian percussion, intended to provide a Brazilian-based psychedelic atmosphere on an album full of artistic sincerity.
