There was no better pick, Dorival Caymmi, an artist that influences all the others with no equivalents in Brazilian music. The “Caymmis” are many, Nana, Dori, Danilo, Stella and that is also Loronix celebration to Dia dos Pais, Father’s Day in English. I had my first contact with this album this week, the others I know were recorded in the 50’s and 60’s and Dorival Caymmi is a very different artist here. Let’s see.

This is Dorival Caymmi – Caymmi (1972), for Odeon. Caymmi is a very nice produced album with the orchestra touch of Maestro Lindolfo Gaya, which is also in charge of Musical Direction. Perhaps the influence of Jorge Amado — who wrote liner notes and also delivers a composition, 13 – Canto de Oba (Dorival Caymmi / Jorge Amado) — makes this album very influenced by the things from Bahia, specially Afro-Brazilian religions. The repertoire features some well know Dorival Caymmi songs such like Oracao de Mae Menininha, Rainha do Mar, Itapoan and others. Feliz dia dos Pais a todos os Loronixers do Brasil. Tracks include:

01 – Promessa de Pescador (Dorival Caymmi)
02 – Morena do Mar (Dorival Caymmi)
03 – Santa Clara Clareou (Dorival Caymmi)
04 – Canto de Nanã (Dorival Caymmi)
05 – Dona Chica (Francisca Santos das Flores) (Dorival Caymmi)
06 – Oração de Mãe Menininha (Dorival Caymmi)
07 – Eu Cheguei Lá (Dorival Caymmi)
08 – Sodade Matadeira (Dorival Caymmi)
09 – A Preta do Acarajé (Dorival Caymmi)
10 – Rainha do Mar (Dorival Caymmi)
11 – Vou Ver Juliana (Dorival Caymmi)
12 – Itapoã (Dorival Caymmi)
13 – Canto do Obá (Dorival Caymmi / Jorge Amado)

This is the first edition of Loronix Singles Festival, just to save our time and make several singles accessible from a single (sorry!) download package. First edition has 3 artists, as follows:

Oswaldo Nunes & The Pop’s (1968), for Equipe. Great surprise, I never saw an Equipe single before and in spite of a non-specific cover artwork, this one looks modern and truly beautiful. Oswaldo Nunes & The Pop’s delivers something my good friends identify as Samba Rock, something really hard to define with my limited knowledge. Tracks include:

01 – Segura Esse Samba Ogunhe
02 – Eu Chorei

Eva (1969), for Copacabana, brings another nice cover, although is just the opposite from Equipe. Perhaps this cover was even considered antique in 1969, but it is truly beautiful and matches perfect with the label design in the middle. Tracks include:

01 – Cantiga por Luciana
02 – Meu Mundo

Joao Roberto Kelly – Joao Roberto Kelly (1980), for Copacabana, a very recent single taking in consideration the previous ones. We have a different Joao Roberto Kelly this time, performing as a romantic singer and making a wonderful job. Tracks include:

01 – Mistura
02 – A Solidao Chegou


Não tinha esses compactos. Porém, graças aos amigos Amilcar e Martoni, eles podem ser buscados na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

Turibio Santos – Villa Lobos | 12 Estudos para Violao (1963)

Link original: Turibio Santos – Villa Lobos | 12 Estudos para Violao (1963)
Publicado em: Sunday, August 12, 2007 by zecalouro

This is for musicians, guitar aficionados, classical music lovers and anyone who wants to know more about the origins of the way of playing an instrument that has a great identification with the music from Brazil, the violao (acoustic guitar). This album has a series of violao estudos written by Maestro Heitor Villa Lobos in 1929, performed by Turibio Santos, a gifted classical violao player more than 40 years ago. I think this quick and very hard to build introduction is solid enough to get your attention to this great album.

This is Turibio Santos – Villa Lobos | 12 Estudos para Violao (1963), for Caravelle. Making a fast Internet research on Villa Lobos 12 Estudos para Violao it clear these twelve pieces are really a reference for any serious musician. This is also Turibio Santos debut LP, the first step of one of the most important classical guitar performers in Brazil with more than 40 albums recorded. These very old Turibio Santos renditions to Villa Lobos Estudos are considered the best interpretation of this anthological set of compositions. I’m really proud to own the original vinyl issue of this first Turibio Santos LP, the vinyl transfer sounds excellent and FLAC files are also available to maximize your experience. Tracks include:

01 – Estudo Nº 1 Em Mi Menor (Villa-Lobos)
02 – Estudo Nº 2 Em Lá Maior (Villa-Lobos)
03 – Estudo Nº 3 Em Ré Maior (Villa-Lobos)
04 – Estudo Nº 4 Em Sol Maior (Villa-Lobos)
05 – Estudo Nº 5 Em Dó Maior (Villa-Lobos)
06 – Estudo Nº 6 Em Mi Menor (Villa-Lobos)
07 – Estudo Nº 7 Em Mi Menor (Villa-Lobos)
08 – Estudo Nº 8 Em Dó Sustenido MenorR (Villa-Lobos)
09 – Estudo Nº 9 Em Fá Sustenido Menor (Villa-Lobos)
10 – Estudo Nº 10 Em Si Menor (Villa-Lobos)
11 – Estudo Nº 11 Em Si Menor (Villa-Lobos)
12 – Estudo Nº 12 Em Lá Menor (Villa-Lobos)

Publicado em: Saturday, August 11, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Evening! Saturday is Samba at Loronix and I have no doubt we are starting great with this compacto duplo (EP), featuring a acclaimed Samba group from the 70’s that delivers Samba in a way I think it should be. This should amaze our Samba enthusiasts. Let’s see.

This is O Conjunto Nosso Samba – Samba ’73 (1972), for Copacabana. I never heard anything from these guys before and I like it very much. They make Samba just like the Escolas de Samba from the old times, slower than today and groovy. Attention to track 03 – Tem Capoeira, a very popular Samba tune from the old times. Tracks include:

01 – Tra-La-La, Lamartine Babo, Um Hino ao Carnaval Brasileiro (Darcy do Nascimento / Oliviel de Oliveira)
02 – O Saber Poetico da Literatura de Cordel (Baianinho)
03 – Tem Capoeira (Batista da Mangueira)
04 – Viagem Encantada Pindorama a Dentro (Wilson Diabo / Malaquias)

Link original: Sonia Santos – Crioula (1977)
Publicado em: Saturday, August 11, 2007 by zecalouro

Here we go on a perfect album to make people ready to the solid Samba listens scheduled for Saturday night. We have here a pretty unknown singer with many fans; actually, I never understood why so many fans and such fanatic fans she has. Now I know the reason, she is truly great. Sonia Santos recorded only two albums in the late 70’s and I cannot understand why she did not made much. You should agree when you listen to this album.

This is Sonia Santos – Crioula (1977), for Som Livre, the second career album of this soulful Brazilian Samba interpreter, produced and arranged by Edson Frederico and featuring a solid group of musicians in the set, such like Edson Frederico, Neco, Luiz Claudio, Chico Batera, Jacques Morellenbaum, Marcio Montarroyos, Claudio Roditi, Altamiro Carrilho, Aurino, Jorginho, Ze Bodega, among others. I’m always very caution to do not express a great enthusiasm on albums I show to Loronixers, so I will let you with personnel listing that explains much of the entertainment you will have with Crioula. Tracks include:


Edson Frederico
(piano, arrangements)
Paulinho Braga
Luiz Claudio

Ney, Chico Batera, Everaldo
Pareschi, Vidal, Daltro, Alves, Nathercia, Aizik
Jaques Morellenbaum, Ibere

Publicado em: Saturday, August 11, 2007 by zecalouro

Some friends will think or say: “here comes zecalouro with another of those promotional albums for tourists in Rio de Janeiro…”. No problem, I would make only this cover that worth the entire experience with this antique. That’s why I’m making something different this time; I’m including a high-resolution copy of cover artwork with no Rapidshare. Let’s see.

This is Orquestra Popular da Guanabara – Rio (1968), for Premier, same concept used in the previous release of this kind, issued for promote tourism activities, musicians not credited, nice cover artwork picturing well-known spots in Rio de Janeiro and a repertoire full of standards. However, there is an exception, this album features an orchestra lead by Maestro Carioca, Orquestra Popular da Guanabara and the repertoire is a wonderful selection of songs with lyrics about Rio de Janeiro. Tracks include:

01 – Cidade Maravilhosa (Andre Filho)
02 – Copacabana (Joao de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
03 – Rio, Eterna Capital (Raul Sampaio / Benil Santos)
04 – Rio de Janeiro, Quatrocentao (Claribalte Passos)
05 – Valsa de uma Cidade (Ismael Netto / Antonio Maria)
06 – Morro de Santa Tereza (Herivelto Martins)
07 – Rio Quatrocentao (Raul Sampaio / Benil Santos)
08 – Noites Cariocas (Oswaldo Borba / N. Wanderley)
09 – Rio (Ary Barroso)
10 – Rio Antigo (Altamiro Carrilho)
11 – Samba do IV Centenario (Claribalte Passos)

Link original: Jacob do Bandolim & Radames Gnattali – Retratos (1964)
Publicado em: Friday, August 10, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Evening! I’m feeling good today, perhaps by hearing another fantastic collaboration by Old Nic. This is an album that I never had the chance to hear or look its cover, in the spirit of he album title, showing a well-known character in Brazil popular known as “Lambe-Lambe”, which is a photographer that holds his equipment on streets making photos of people. They have disappeared with the creation of these automatic photo machines. They were very common in Rio de Janeiro, but I think they were gone a decade or two ago.

This is Jacob do Bandolim & Radames Gnattali – Retratos (1964), for Columbia, featuring Jacob do Bandolim on tracks 01, 02, 03 and 04 backed up by Radames Gnattali and his Orchestra performing Retratos Suite. Radames Gnattali playing piano with no additional accompaniement performs the remaining tracks. Jacob do Bandolim and Radames Gnattali alone makes this album worth checking. Tracks include:

01 – Retratos (Suíte) I – PixinguinhaA (Radamés Gnattali) – Jacob do Bandolim
02 – Retratos (Suíte) II – NazarethH (Radamés Gnattali) – Jacob do Bandolim
03 – Retratos (Suíte) III – Anacleto de MedeirosS (Anacleto de Medeiros / Radamés Gnattali) – Jacob do Bandolim
04 – Retratos (Suíte) IV – Chiquinha GonzagaA (Radamés Gnattali) – Jacob do Bandolim
05 – Uma Rosa Para Pixinguinha (Radamés Gnattali) – Radamés Gnattali
06 – Moto Contínuo (Radamés Gnattali) – Radamés Gnattali
07 – Vaidosa Nº 1 (Radamés Gnattali) – Radamés Gnattali
08 – Canhoto (Radamés Gnattali) – Radamés Gnattali
09 – Noturno (Radamés Gnattali) – Radamés Gnattali
10 – Vaidosa Nº 2 (Radamés Gnattali) – Radamés Gnattali
