I just spoke with Caetano by phone and he said the next package – a special and very different one – would be mailed tomorrow, first time in the morning. Tomorrow will be another day of tension on a day that seems to last 48 hours. Several other things are scheduled for tomorrow and I think it is better stop talking about it now before I spoil Caetano’s surprise with my big tongue.

These phone calls are also useful to get recommendations from Caetano and this album was celebrated when mentioned, by the way, what can go wrong when you have Dick Farney and Claudette Soares together? I really don’t know.

This is Dick Farney e Claudette Soares – Dick & Claudette | Tudo Isto e Amor Vol. 2 (1976), for Odeon, the second out of two albums released by Dick Farney in collaboration with Claudette Soares. This is not about Dick Farney piano accompanying Claudette Soares, they are singing together and the duets are beautiful, their voices and interpretation styles matches nicely. Personnel is not credited, but Dick Farney plays piano for sure and the legendary Saba from Jongo Trio is the executive producer. Tracks include:

01 – Chuva (Durval Ferreira / Pedro Camargo)
02 – Nós (Johnny Alf)
03 – Demais (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
04 – Casualmente (Berimbau)
05 – Fim de Caso (Dolores Duran)
06 – Apelo (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – Nick Bar (José Vasconcelos)
08 – Preciso Aprender a Ser Só (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
09 – Ela Foi Embora (Oscar Bellandi / Djalma Ferreira)
10 – Tomara (Novelli / Paulo César Pinheiro / Maurício Tapajós)
11 – O Amor Em Paz (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)

Hello, Good Evening! Closing another Samba weekend at Loronix I would like to show an album that will make even the day of those how never were in the mood of Samba. This album is part of my childhood and as a little parrot I could not evaluate how these guys are really great. Os Originais do Samba are really “professional”, this album has nice vocal and instrumental arrangements and brings a tune that Brazilians will remember very fast. Let’s see.

This is Os Originais do Samba – Pra que Tristeza (1974), for RCA Victor. Quimsy would say that Os Originais do Samba delivers an infectious Samba groove. I will only say that you will kick around the apartment, reaching the ceiling at some peaks. It is impossible to talk about this album with no mention to Tragedia no Fundo do Mar, this music was really a blockbuster by the release time. It has been a long time since my last hearing and I thought it was more accelerated, but it has smooth and nice arrangements by Maestro Elcio Alvares with direction in charge of Wilson Miranda. Tracks include:

01 – Saudade e Flores (Adeílton Alves / Nilton Pereira de Castro)
02 – Samba do “Arnesto” (Adoniran Barbosa / Alocin)
03 – Cabeça Que Não Tem Juízo (Aloísio)
04 – Tragédia no Fundo do Mar (Assassinato do Camarão) (Zeré / Ibrain)
05 – Pra Que Tristeza (Delcio Carvalho)
06 – Mulata Faceira (Martinho da Vila)
07 – Boato (Carlos Geraldo / B. J. Aroldo / Netinho)
08 – Canto de Amor (Delcio Carvalho / Barbosa da Silva)
09 – Buchicho (Luis Carlos / Murilo Penha “Bidi”)
10 – Complicação (Murilo Penha “Bidi” / Mussum / Luis Carlos)
11 – Quem Me Dera (Beto Scala / São Beto)
12 – Não Sei de Nada (Wando)

We saw many albums with the music from Brazil performed by non-Brazilian artists and now it is the time of making the opposite direction showing an album performed by a Brazilian artist with a repertoire of American standards. I think nobody can do it better than Leny Andrade.

I have a very good friends that knows by heart Leny Andrade discography says this is the album he likes most. Thanks to Victor Ricelli for making available this album to Loronixers. Tracks include:

01 – Misty (E. Garner / Johnny Burke)
02 – Autumn Leaves (Les Feuilles Mortes) (J. Kosma / J. Prevert)
03 – The Man I Love (George Gershwin / Ira Gershwin)
04 – Night And Day (Cole Porter)
05 – Embraceable You (George Gershwin / Ira Gershwin)
06 – Stella By Starlight (V. Young / N. Washington)
07 – Body And Soul (J. Green / C. Heyman)
08 – Satin Doll (Duke Ellington)

Sergio Mendes – Sergio Mendes’ Favorite Things (1967)

I think my Sergio Mendes education is over with the release of this brand new contribution from Caetano Rodrigues, or at least “phase one” education has gone to a term. A couple of days before I understood my worries about Sergio Mendes, blame it on the Arara album with a Macaw at the cover with the wings clipped on a way I never saw before. Who knows later I show you this album, widely unknown Sergio Mendes LP.

This is Sergio Mendes – Sergio Mendes’ Favorite Things (1967), for Atlantic. I decided to do not make any kind of research about Favorite Things and based on I heard this is another “transitional” Sergio Mendes album from the Bossa Nova oriented years to the late more “commercial” Sergio Mendes. The Favorite Things title suggests a compilation; anyway, Caetano should bring more clarification tomorrow when I reach him by phone, although I’m sure I will wake up with several comments waiting for approval. Tracks include:

01 – My Favorite Things(R. Rodgers / O. Hammerstein II)
02 – Tempo Feliz (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Ponteio (Edu Lobo / Capinan)
04 – Veleiro (Edu Lobo / Torquato Neto)
05 – A Banda (Chico Buarque)
06 – I Say a Little Prayer (Burt Bacharach / H. David)
07 – Comin’ Home Baby (B. Tucker / B. Dorough)
08 – Boa Palavra (Caetano Veloso)
09 – O Mar É Meu Chão (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta)
10 – So What’s New (J. Pisano)


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças ao amigo Martoni, ele agora pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

Ed Lincoln – Seu Piano e Seu Orgao Espetacular (1963)

Publicado em: Saturday, May 19, 2007 by zecalouro

It is always nice to visit an old vinyl shop with a friend to hunt records together, but some embarrassing situations always occur. It does not happen with Caetano, that has everything and the last time that happened was with Moos, from the Netherlands. The situation happens when your friend find first the record that you are looking for. It is a weird feeling, because you stay happy and a little bit sad at the same time. Not a problem with the great Moos that sent the ones that he found first just when he arrived home.

This is Ed Lincoln – Seu Piano e Seu Orgao Espetacular (1963), for Musidisc, really above the average Ed Lincoln album, lyrics in most of the tracks, Orlandivo and Pedrinho Rodrigues as special guests and that infectious Hammond B3 organ groove provided by Ed Lincoln. I decided to keep Moos ripping untouched, so you will have eventual clicks and clacks at the end and beginning of each track. Tracks include:

01 – Miss Balanço (Heitor Menezes)
02 – Só Danço Samba (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Vou Rir de Você (Heitor Menezes)
04 – Influência do Jazz (Carlos Lyra)
05 – Um Samba Gostoso (Ed Lincoln)
06 – Vamos Balançar (Carlos Imperial)
07 – O Samba É Bom Assim (Pra Mim) (Hélio Nascimento / Norival Reis)
08 – Pra Que (Silvio César)
09 – É Um Estouro (Jaime Silva / Neusa Teixeira / Luis Pereira)
10 – Balansamba Nº 1 (Luis Bandeira)
11 – Tristeza (Ed Lincoln / Luis Bandeira)
12 – Olhou Pra Mim (Ed Lincoln / Silvio César)

Publicado em: Saturday, May 19, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Evening! I like Saturday nights at Loronix, it is the day of experiments and also a day of Samba. This is the deal, we will start with Samba and then I will try to figure out what should be an exciting experiment, showing music from an artist, a genre or from a certain Brazilian region never released before at Loronix. I think it will be real cool.

This is Roberto Silva – Descendo o Morro Nr. 3 (1960), for Copacabana. In spite of being a classic Samba album, this is one of those that you buy just by the cover that really worth the admission price. This is a 1991 Beverly reissue and I’m not sure if the original cover matches with this one. Roberto Silva is a renowned Samba interpreter in Brazil, active from the late 30’s until today at the age of 87. Personnel is not credited, but delivers strong accompaniment to the classic voice of Roberto Silva with wonderful trombone solos that will make you wonder who is playing. Tracks include:

01 – Curare (Bororó)
02 – Domine a Sua Paixão (João Bastos Filho / Djalma Mafra)
03 – Juramento Falso (J. Cascata / Leonel Azevedo)
04 – Beija-me (Roberto Martins / Mário Rossi)
05 – Palpite Infeliz (Noel Rosa)
06 – Boogie-woogie na Favela (Denis Brean)
07 – Amanhã Eu Volto (Roberto Martins / Antônio Almeida)
08 – Uma Dor e Uma Saudade (Zé Pretinho / Reis Saint Clair)
09 – Aquele Bilhetinho (Garcez / Nelson Silva / Arnô Canegal)
10 – Meu Pecado (Lupicínio Rodrigues / Felisberto Martins)
11 – Errei Erramos (Ataulfo Alves)
12 – Um Caboclo Abandonado (Rolinha Triste) (Benedito Lacerda / Herivelto Martins)

Hello, Good Evening! I was wondering the right time to show this album to Loronixers and I think the time has come with this One million hits barrier we broke today and also with the hint send by Good Groove at the previous Tamba Trio post. This is a really great Samba Jazz set from the old times, recorded by another artist that I learned to admire at Loronix.

This is Breno Sauer Quarteto – 4 na Bossa (1966), for Musidisc, perhaps one of the best records ever made in the 60’s by the Brazilian pianist, arranger and composer Breno Sauer. Thanks Good Groove for bringing this fantastic album back to this parrot memory. I’m brief today; several emails are reaching my mailbox such like a waterfall on a tiny cup of tea. Stay tuned for the next releases of the day. Tracks include:
