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)

Publicado em: Sunday, May 20, 2007 by zecalouro

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)

Publicado em: Saturday, May 19, 2007 by zecalouro

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)

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)

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)

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:

This 1 Million hits milestone makes me wonder about Loronix beginning, the very first month. Several posts from that month were removed, no special reason, I was just testing things, tuning Loronix and I decided to keep them out. I’m planning to post them back, some of them are really unusual for Loronix, but these are albums that I like a lot and it will be fantastic to show friends some of them.

I’m making now Egberto Gismonti, considered by many friends as a missing piece at Loronix. I got the advice of a very good friend to make this album on a special day and I think this day is today.

This is Egberto Gismonti – Alma (1987), for Odeon. Truly awesome and obscure album by the renowned Brazilian multi-instrumentalist Egberto Gismonti. I could not find Alma listed on major on-line stores, such as Amazon and the gorillas AMG and Artist Direct. Anyway, this is guaranteed entertainment and I hope people can add more information about it, such as personnel and availability. Tracks include:

01 – Baiao Malandro
02 – Palhaco
03 – Loro
04 – Maracatu
05 – Karate
06 – Agua e Vinho
07 – Frevo
08 – Cigana

12 – Realejo

Here we go again with another Caetano Rodrigues contribution, this time different, since Caetano gave this record as a gift on my last trip to Sao Paulo. Thanks Caetano. However, simplicity is not a word on Caetano’s dictionary. Caetano said to let it ready and wait for further instructions. That’s what I did, like a soldier and the instructions had just arrived here: release at 1 Million Hits day. Very wise of Caetano, 5 artists together on a single album is really a celebration.

This is Juntos! (1988), for Phonodisc, featuring Edu Lobo, Johnny Alf, Taiguara, Pery Ribeiro and Sergio Ricardo. I just spoke with Caetano about Juntos! and we agreed that some tracks were released only at this album and never were made available on regular releases by these artists. Any help to realize which are the songs never released on regular albums is really appreciated. Tracks include:

01 – O Nosso Olhar – SERGIO RICARDO
02 – Uma Vez um Caso – EDU LOBO
03 – O Amor da Justica – TAIGUARA
04 – Chega de Saudade – PERY RIBEIRO

Loronix has been receiving new friends in the last week, on a manner that I could not identify; no major announcement was made on other community. Anyway, as new friends come that old and impossible to answer question comes again, which is, what are the best albums you recommend at Loronix… It is not an easy answer. I’ve been thinking about making a list, but the chance of leaving something out of it is disturbing. That’s why I decided to repost one of the first and most representative Bossa Nova albums made available, since I got it on vinyl recently on a very good quality.

This is Tamba Trio – Avanco (1963), for Philips, second LP by Tamba Trio, lead by the mighty Luiz Eca. Avanco is probably the album the best blends instrumental and vocal arrangements at Tamba Trio whole discography. Bebeto, Tamba Trio bass player and multi-instrumentalist makes the difference here, playing also sax and flute. Durval Ferreira almost makes Tamba Trio a quartet, playing violao in all tracks. Tracks include:

Hello, Good Evening! Everybody knows that Tania Maria is among the artists that I have limited knowledge about, but I know that Tania Maria puts her heart on top of everything she makes, mainly live concerts, which are the ones that I like most.

This is Tania Maria – Tania Maria Live (1979), for Accord, live performance at the Azzhus Montmartre, Copenhagen, featuring Tania Maria (piano and vocal), Andre Ceccarelli (bass) and Marc Bertheaux (drums).

Boca Livre is a Brazilian vocal group that had some importance in the early 80’s. This is their first LP and it was released independently of record labels. Anyway, there is no much importance so far, several albums were released independently, but this one has something different, if you were in Brazil by this time, you will remember that this album was a blockbuster and performed very well at both sides, commercially and artistic, let’s now understand what we have here.

This is Boca Livre – Boca Livre (1979), Boca Livre debut LP, released independently by Mauricio Maestro (instrumental and voice arrangements, bass, vocals), Ze Renato (violao, vocals), Claudio Nucci (violao, vocals) and David Tygel (violao, vocals). The first two tracks of this album – Quem Tem a Viola and Toada – are directly responsible for the commercial triumph and really worth the entire record. Boca Livre is still active, although this original formation has changed several times since this first and essential album. Tracks include:

01 – Quem Tem a Viola (Cecilia) (Zé Renato / Xico Chaves / Cláudio Nucci / Juca Filho)
02 – Toada (Na Direção do Dia) (Zé Renato / Cláudio Nucci / Juca Filho)

That’s it. I was a little bit concerned on publishing this album, since it is another Rio de Janeiro cover artwork among several at Loronix. However, Caetano said something that I did not noticed after several visual examinations at this cover that really worth show Loronixers. This is also another of those albums made for a specific purpose that were not put available commercially, just like the last Brazil by Music – Fly Cruzeiro first presented at Quimsy.

This is Peruzzi, Sua Orquestra e Coro – Rio-Show (1965), for Odeon (printing). Odeon just printed Rio-Show as a request of Brazilian Government by Secretaria de Turismo do Estado da Guanabara as part of IV Centenario da Cidade de Sao Sebastiao do Rio de Janeiro, the 400 years celebration of Rio de Janeiro City. zecalouro did not see and Caetano said at a first sight, the picture shows the construction phase of what is known today as Aterro do Flamengo or Parque do Flamengo. Before Aterro do Flamengo construction, the sea border was almost a kilometer inside, touching the buildings. I wish I could find a photo taken before Aterro do Flamengo construction taken at the same spot of this one. The comparison would be amazing. Anyway, this is a nice orchestra with choir album with arrangements and conduction by the Brazilian Maestro Peruzzi. Tracks include:

01 – Cidade Maravilhosa (André Filho)
02 – Fim de Semana Em Paquetá (João de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
03 – Corcovado (Tom Jobim)

Hello, Good Evening! Loronix agents were in Sao Paulo today to transfer Caetano Rodrigues book to zecalouro’s cage in Rio de Janeiro, the last stop before arriving in the US to Lemuel, the great Survey Lottery Winner. The agents are trained to provide world-class security to the book, but they are also Loronixers and did not resist taking pictures of Caetano writing his autography at Lemuel book and also Caetano hugging the book and saying goodbye to it.

Attention to special areas on picture. The Jazz session on top, the CD collection in the right and the locked shelf of main Brazilian LPs in the lower part. I’m also highlighting the LP browsing chair, which is the only viable way to dig inside the Brazilian collection. This is not Caetano’s whole collection; it is just a small sample. The music is all around his place. Once again I want to thanks Caetano for making available one of the last books available as new copy on his possession. Tracks include: Opps! Sorry, there are no tracks! In an hour or so the music starts.

Someone is saying here that it is right to end with the number one, the website is navigated from top to bottom, so people will see Baden Powell series from the first to the last one. Makes sense.

This is Baden Powell – Baden Powell Quartet Vol. 1 (1970), for Barclay, France. As we know, the series was recorded on a single session between 10 and 12 of December, 1970 and released on a three volumes, the last and best recording of Baden Powell Quartet. Tracks include:


Baden Powell
(violao, vocal)
Ernesto Ribeiro
Helio Schiavo
Alfredo Bessa

Jeanine de Waleyne
Lou Game
Track 02

Charles Verstraete
Pierre Gossez
(sax tenor)
Track 03

Track List

I cannot resist to Milton Banana and I could not resist to this one sold at Sao Paulo Vinil Fair a couple of weeks ago for a very attractive price. By the way, it was fun people asking to see the records inside my bag just to know in advance future Loronix posts. I’m missing vinyl fairs and I cannot wait for the next one.

This is Milton Banana – Milton Banana (1973), for Odeon, directed by Maestro Lindolfo Gaya. I’m only sad of not finding at cover personnel at the set, that’s why I thing the album is only titled Milton Banana instead of Milton Banana Trio. Milton delivers smooth Samba Jazz renditions of early 70’s Brazilian hit parade. It is unbelievable this great songs were hit parade in the early 70’s, in comparison with what we have as hit parade today in Brazil. Tracks include:

01 – Do Lado Direito da Rua Direita (Luis Carlos / Chiquinho)
02 – Alô Alô Taí Carmen Miranda (Wilson Diabo / Maneco / Heitor)
03 – Se o Caso É Chorar (Tom Zé / Perna)
04 – Amor Amor (Paulo Menezes / Maria Luisa Imperial / Bloco Carnavalesco Bafo da Onça)
05 – Pasárgada o Amigo do Rei (David Correia)
06 – Deixa Teu Mal (Eduardo Gudin / Paulo César Pinheiro)
07 – Cicatrizes (Miltinho / Paulo César Pinheiro)
08 – Lendas do Abaeté (Jajá / Preto Rico / Manoel)
09 – Minhas Razões (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi)
10 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha / João de Barro)

Hello, Good Evening! One of the favorites Caetano Rodrigues musicians is back to Loronix, Izio Gross, a widely unknown artist in Brazil, but an acclaimed musician overseas, especially in German, the country were he lives and made most part of his discography.

This is Izio Grosss y Su Ritmo – Bossa Nova in Rhythm (no date), for Kubaney. I have been searching for info about this album with no success. Caetano says that Bossa Nova in Rhythm was recorded in Mexico and he is right since Kubaney is a Mexican record label. I’ve been searching also at Izzio Gross official website and among several itens on his discography, this one is not listed. I think it should be listed; this is one of the best Izio Gross albums I have heard with vivid Samba Jazz renditions of Bossa Nova standards. Tracks include:

01 – Desafinado
02 – Zelao
03 – Tristeza Alegre
04 – Noite do Meu Bem
05 – Eu-e-o-Rio
06 – Murmurio
07 – Barquinho
08 – Dindi
09 – Palhacada
10 – Samba de Minha Terra
11 – Quem Quiser Encontrar o Amor
12 – Ceu e Mar

I think Quimsy will not be bored with zeca when he sees this amazing Brazilian instrumental music creation at Loronix. This is a extremely rare album made by Aquarius Producoes Artisticas, which is as far as I know a label owned by Marcos Valle and Azymuth. I never had the chance to see this vinyl and we should thanks Quimsy who first made available at his website (http://quimsy.blogspot.com)

This is Marcos Valle & Azymuth – Brazil by Music, Fly Cruzeiro (1972), for Aquarius Producoes Artisticas. Fly Cruzeiro is a promotional record, never released commercially with the intent of be used as music to be played inside Cruzeiro airlines flights. The cover artwork I have is so tiny that I asked zeca to make this version, but you can see the original one at the left. If someone can add more information about this album, such as: number of copies, personnel, etc. please let us know. Tracks include:

01 – Jingle Cruzeiro
02 – Esta Fazendo um Ano – Aquarela do Brasil

Stan Getz – Big Band Bossa Nova (1962)

Link original: Stan Getz – Big Band Bossa Nova (1962)
Publicado em: Tuesday, May 15, 2007 by zecalouro

This is one out of a series of albums available at “A Bossa Nova Internacional” section of Caetano’s Bossa Nova e Outras Bossas book released by Verve with this cover artwork, all designed by Olga Albizu. Most of these albums were very important on introducing Bossa Nova to American audience and we will start to show by this first one sent by Caetano Rodrigues with Stan Getz on Bossa Nova standards arranged by Gary McFarland.

This is Stan Getz – Big Band Bossa Nova (1962), for Verve, with arrangements and conduction by Gary McFarland. This amazing set was recorded only in two days, August 27 and 28, 1962. AMG should make better than zeca on Big Band Bossa Nova review with highlights on Gary McFarland participation, as follows: “Fresh from the sudden success of Jazz Samba and “Desafinado,” Stan Getz asked the 28-year-old, strikingly gifted Gary McFarland to arrange a bossa nova album for big band as a follow-up. Getz is always his debonair, wistful, freely-floating self, completely at home in the Brazilian idiom that he’d adopted only a few months before. McFarland usually keeps things nice and spare (although “One Note Samba” is uncharacteristically cluttered and a bit too discordant for the material), letting his pungent voicings stab the air now and then, while allowing the soloists all the room they want within the confines of producer Creed Taylor’s tight timings. Four of the eight songs are by McFarland (none of which would become standards), and Getz makes relaxed impressions with “Manha de Carnival” and “Chega de Saudade.” Jim Hall takes the role of acoustic guitarist from Charlie Byrd with his usual fluidity, and Hank Jones ruminates in a boppish way on piano. This album also charted quite respectably (number 13) in the first flush of the bossa nova boom.” Tracks include:

01 – Manha de Carnaval
02 – Balanco no Samba
03 – Melancolico
04 – Entre Amigos
05 – Chega de Saudade
06 – Noite Triste
07 – Samba de uma Nota So
08 – Bim Bom

Yesterday, Carlos Mendes asked for an album from Orlando Pereira, which is an artist from the Brazilian North region Para state, close to Amazon and the rainforest full of birds that I want to visit one day. I spoke with Caetano about Orlando Pereira and he recommended a different artist from the same Para state that made a great success at Loronix months ago, Alberto Mota e Seu Conjunto, back to Loronix with E pra Dancar… Ou Mais!

This is Alberto Mota e Seu Conjunto – E pra Dancar… Ou Mais!… (1963), for Polydor. This is as nice as the previous release, Voa Meu Samba with Alberto Mota e Seu Conjunto in front of an airplane, but there is one thing that really disturbs me, this building location, it looks like very much with a church build in Belo Horizonte city, Minas Gerais, a project by Oscar Niemeyer, the renowned Brazilian architect that is making 100 years this year active as he was when 50 years old. If a friend has the right information about this building, please let us know. Tracks include:

Publicado em: Monday, May 14, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Evening! They are back. I thought I could resist longer showing you this album, but it was impossible, so good it is and also so nice is this cover artwork. Both are in evidence since Caetano Rodrigues sent to us the first Marisa Barroso LP and Astor e Sua Orquestra – Sambas.. So Sambas! yesterday, as well. Let’s show Loronixers another outcome of this very interesting partnership between Marisa Barroso and Astor Silva.

This is Marisa Barroso – Marisa Barroso (1962), for Columbia. Marisa Barroso is again directed and backed by Astor Silva arrangements that also plays trombone. In my opinion, this is equivalent or better than the first, which is the third and last Marisa Barroso album, sent by Caetano Rodrigues. This is her second LP and we are desperately looking for Marisa Barroso debut recorded in 1961 for Copacabana as Marisa Barroso – Cantigas para Enganar o Tempo, with Aloisio e Seu Conjunto. Tracks include:

01 – Na Cadência do Samba (Ataulfo Alves / Paulo Gesta)
02 – Renuncia (Lauro Miranda / Otávio Teixeira)
03 – Parti (Ed Lincoln / Silvio César)
04 – Chora Coração (Denis Brean / Osvaldo Guilherme)
05 – Tema do Boneco de Palha (Sivan Castelo Neto / Vera Brasil)
06 – Poema do Olhar (Evaldo Gouveia / Jair Amorim)

I have been trying to find a reason for taken a year to show this album to Loronixers, a important album to everybody who wants to know more about early Bossa Nova develops by an early Bossa Nova figure, the great Johnny Alf. Perhaps I’m getting blink by the way, this cover looks very much like Compact 33 by Leny Andrade and Tamba Trio and maybe I was taken it by mistake as a driven by cover artwork parrot I am.

This is Johnny Alf – Rapaz de Bem (1961), for RCA Victor, Johnny Alf debut LP. Johnny Alf was an active musician since the early 50’s and could only make this first LP in 1961. Little is known about this LP, however, the tireless Maria Luiza Kfouri from Discos do Brasil(http://www.discosdobrasil.com.br) identified Maestro Nelsinho as arranger and also trombonist on some tracks, which is also a guarantee of nice arrangements and trombone playing as Nelsinho uses to make on everything he takes part. Tracks include:

01 – Rapaz de Bem (Johnny Alf)
02 – Escuta (Johnny Alf)
03 – Feitiçaria (Custódio Mesquita / Evaldo Ruy)
04 – Fuga (Durval Ferreira)
05 – Tema Sem Palavras (Maurício Einhorn / Durval Ferreira)
06 – Penso Em Você (Fernando Lobo / Paulo Soledade)
07 – O Que É Amar (Johnny Alf)
08 – Fim de Semana Em Eldorado (Johnny Alf)
09 – Que Vou Dizer Eu (Victor Freire / Klécius Caldas)
10 – Ilusão à Toa (Johnny Alf)
11 – Tudo Distante de Mim (Johnny Alf)
12 – Vem (Johnny Alf)

This is Johnny Alf – Rapaz de Bem (1961), at Loronix.  Hope uEnjoy!

Publicado em: Monday, May 14, 2007 by zecalouro

I have been thinking about showing this album every week since last year and now I have some reasons for making it. Yesterday, Ipanema Sun asked for it using a comment at Astrud Gilberto post and today, I was talking with Ronnie Mesquita about another Bola Sete album that he played drums, Sheebaba, which is one of the greatest Bola Sete albums in my humble opinion. Everything leads to Bola Sete – Ocean.

This is Bola Sete – Ocean (1972), for Takoma. Breathtaking guitar only album blending meditative Bossa Nova renditions with vibrant Flamenco tunes. Another reason for do not make it before was complexity, Ocean sounds strange at a first hearing, but it is the kind of album that rewards you more and more on every new hearing you take. I hope people also reward Ronnie, Ipanema Sun and zeca to bring Bola Sete to the spotlight again at Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – Vira Mundo Penba
02 – Guitar Lamento
03 – Let Go
04 – Macumba
05 – The Lonely Gaucho
06 – Inn of the Beginning
07 – Xango Xengo Xerengo

Hello, Good Evening! Here we go on another Caetano Rodrigues contribution, a solo LP by an artist that always delivers wonderful results on everything he makes, from participations as trombonist to more complex accomplishments as arranger on other artists albums. Astor Silva is really extraordinary.

This is Astor Silva e Sua Orquestra – Samba… So Samba! (1963), for Columbia. This is the first Astor Silva album at Loronix and his discography is huge, releasing more than 10 LPs as Astor Silva and other additional albums using other names, such like Lord Astor and as member of the group Lord Astor e Seus Dixiedrolls. I will be tracking down more Astor Silva solo releases and we will have more to come in a near future, he was a fantastic musician and deserves a stronger approach at Loronix. Tracks include:

Really, really wise of Caetano when he sent this album with a note: “to be released at Saturday night”. I did not understand why it should be released on this specific day, but today Caetano told me: “This is to celebrate Mother’s day, stupid Parrot”. Very wise of Caetano, he is right, I didn’t make this easy association…

Although people in different countries celebrate Mother’s Day on different days of the year, Loronix and Caetano Rodrigues would like to dedicate this beautiful album to all Mother’s in the world.

This is As Melhores Mulheres (Cantadas por um Homem Qualquer ou Qualquer Homem) (1957), for Odeon. In spite of the big title, I did not write the artist or group name, however, Caetano thinks – and I agree with him – this is a male choir lead by Aloysio de Oliveira since his voice can be heard clear in some tracks. As Melhores Mulheres was released in 1957, before Bossa Nova and feature arrangements from Maestro Antonio Carlos Jobim and Orlando Silveira, which makes this album a sought after vinyl collectors piece. Thanks once again for this great music and also for Mother’s Day surprise in the last minute. Tracks include:

01 – Maria (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
02 – Helena Helena (Antônio Almeida / Constantino Silva “Secundino”)
03 – Aurora (Mário Lago / Roberto Roberti)
04 – Zazá (Joel de Almeida)
05 – Rosa Morena (Dorival Caymmi)
06 – Emília (Haroldo Lobo / Wilson Batista)
07 – Marina (Dorival Caymmi)
08 – Dolores (Arlindo Marques Júnior / Marino Pinto / Alberto Ribeiro)
09 – Ai Que Saudades da Amélia (Ataulfo Alves / Mário Lago)
10 – Magdalena (Ari Macedo / Airton Amorim)
11 – Juraci (Antônio Almeida / Ciro de Souza)
12 – Um Nome de Mulher (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)


Este disco já tinha sido publicado no Loronix com outra capa (abaixo) e com o título “Dançando com as Garotas” – Os Guanabara Boys. Portanto, também já foi publicado aqui nos Órfãos do Loronix.

Caetano Rodrigues will think I’m going nuts with this post, we spent almost an hour discussing alternatives to reach a different decision, but a last minute technical problem was identified and the agreed album needs to be postponed. I’m wondering if you think we are crazy and if you think we are crazy you are 100% correct, it is really insane to spend a lot of time to decided between gold and diamonds since all Caetano collection is great from the start to end. We love the work we do at Loronix and the time we spent on decision-making is on the benefit of everybody. Sorry Caetano, this busy parrot will settled a little down after our celebration.

This is Marisa & Moacyr Silva e Seu Conjunto – Convite a Musica Nr. 2 (1958), for Copacabana, the best of both words album blending instrumental tracks provided by the legendary Brazilian sax tenor Moacyr Silva and the renowned Brazilian singer Marisa, also known as Marisa Gata Mansa. Convite a Musica Nr. 2 follows Nr. 1, already available at Loronix and in my humble opinion is very much better than the first one.

I learned a lot of new things with this album, I didn’t know that Marisa was part of Moacyr Silva e Seu Conjunto, performing together on nightclubs, such as the legendary Vogue, a feel blocks away from my place. It is funny, I miss Vogue nightclub and I never had the chance of being there, and actually, I don’t think I was born when Vogue was opened for business. I also learned that Moacyr Silva was influenced by the American Jazz sax player Coleman Hawkins, at least is what Lucio Rangel says at liner notes. That’s it. Thanks Caetano for Moacyr Silva, Marisa and Conjunto, featuring Chaim Lewak, Maurilio Santos, Edmundo Maciel, Raul Gagliardi and Hanestaldo Americo. Tracks include:

Let’s start great today, showing a unique album sent by Caetano Rodrigues and a longtime request from several Loronixers. Maestro Severino Araujo and Orquestra Tabajara made their rendition to the choro genre delivering a blend of choro with big band, on a really delightful set. Let’s check.

This is Severino Araujo e Sua Orquestra Tabajara – 12 Chorinhos de Severino Araujo (1960), for Continental. I was making some research on choro and now I understand something very important, the term “Chorinho” is not well received by Choro fans, thay say chorinho is something different, the choro genre with lyrics. This album does not have lyrics; it is pure instrumental music with Maestro Severino Araujo and his orchestra at their peak. Caetano asks Loronixers to pay special attention to the tracks that he likes most, Mirando-te and Um Chorinho pra Voce. Truly beautiful indeed. Thanks once again Caetano for an album that I never heard such like before. Tracks include:

01 – Um Chorinho Pra Você (Severino Araújo)
02 – Um Chorinho na Aldeia (Severino Araújo)
03 – Um Chorinho Em Montevideo (Severino Araújo)
04 – Puladinho (Severino Araújo)
05 – Oh Clarinete Gostoso (Severino Araújo)
06 – Um Chorinho Em Pinhal (Severino Araújo)
07 – Um Chorinho Delicioso (Severino Araújo)
08 – Mirando-te (Severino Araújo / Aldo Cabral)

Hello, Good Evening! We are in the middle of Loronix 1st Anniversary, May, 12. Several things happened today and I’m very happy with what I’ve been reading on personal emails, comments and CBox, also known as “Quadradinho”. Let me highlight the public ones, asking your attention for it, as follows:

1) New amazing comment at Antonio Carlos Jobim 80 anniversary tribute – A anonymous Loronixer wrote in the middle of yesterday night a very detailed comment with lots of unknown facts about Antonio Carlos Jobim & Frank Sinatra lost tape. It seems he is very connected with what happened at that time, probably taking part of everything. Do not miss it, comments section of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Frank Sinatra – The Lost Tape (1969),here.

2) Survey Winner has replied with the magic number – We have a winner of Caetano Rodrigues Bossa Nova book, his name is Lemmuel Cabrera, living in the United States. Look how great Lemuel is holding a Cockatoo. Let’s celebrate the lucky winner.

3) I have been receiving sincere and touchy birthday message from several friends and I want to hightligh a comment made a couple of hours ago at the fantastic Caetano Rodrigues contribution Brazilian Jazz Quartet. It was an anonymous post, but really made my day and I want to urge Loronixers to read it, just check the comment section of the post bellow or click here to go.

4) All Cbox friends – Thanks a million. Friends at CBox made a strong feedback on 1st anniversary today and I want to say that I cannot go there to reply today. I’m afraid of crying and also spend all night long writing back to everybody. I love you friends at CBox and I love Loronixers all around the worlds.

That’s it. Now it is time to go back to work and take care of the music. The music never stops at Loronix and Caetano’s contributions are making a row besides me. I cannot decide now which one to make and you will need to wait half hour to make it.

Thanks everybody!
