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:

Zeca this was a really fine post- although it was not planned- this is one of my alltime favourite LP covers since I bought this LP- I like to take this Lp and only look to the cover- so beautiful it is-
Music for sure, too with the grande brother of Coleman Hawkins- Maestro M. silva.

Best wishes

Esse vai prá minha coleçao!
Grato, mais uma vez.

I just discovered the fact that Marisa Gata Mansa has recorded in 1960 a Compacto Duplo backed up by Moacyr Silva & Seu Conjunto with the following 4 compositions:

Arrasta a Sandália
You Stepped Out of a Dream
Dizem Por Aí
Nós Dois

Unfortunatelly I managed to find only the fromt cover…

Hello Milan!

How are you?

This is a real find, it is not listed on any discography I know.

May you please share this front cover? It helps.

many cheers,
