This is a special repost of one of the greatest accomplishes of Loronix. It is also a tribute to our friend Caetano Rodrigues, a great friend of mine that I could only have the chance to meet through our community. For those who does not know who is Caetano Rodrigues, he is just the greatest Bossa Nova LP collector in Brazil, blessing Loronix on an on-going basis with albums from his personal collection.

I said before and I want to say it again, Caetano’s contribution to our community is such like a once in a lifetime opportunity and this post is to make people understand – specially the new Loronixers – why Caetano is so important to Loronix by making his whole collection available to us to the love he has to the music from Brazil and the great sympath to our website.

This is Sergio Mendes – Quiet Nights (1968), for Philips, one of the rarest Bossa Nova albums, never made available in CD. As I said, Quiet Night is being reposted to homage Caetano and also to address major improvements cover artworks, MP3 files with higher bitrate and the now popular FLAC looseless alternative. I’m keeping original post information adding personnel info, which is still uncertain after months. Tracks include:

Personnel

Sergio Mendes
(piano)
David Pike
(vibes)
Eddie Higgins
(vibes on Insensatez)
unknown
(guitar)
Sebastiao Neto
(bass)
Chico Batera or Edison Machado
(drums)

I decided to make a chronological approach showing excerpts from conversations made until this publishing, as follows:

The first citation from Bossanov, the starter of this post:

August, 28th, 2006 – “Do you have some of the most mysterious Sergio opus – LP Quiet Nights (Philips, 1967 in my opinion or 1963 as mighty http://www.allmusic.com insist?)?”

Frank Oliver Hellmann introduces the mysteries that surrounds this release:

August, 29th, 2006 – “The Quiet Nights album was recorded 1963 or 1964 in USA and was released by Philips not before 1967, after the success of Brazil 66. It has Dave Pike on vibes, Tiao Neto on bass and Chico Batera on drums. It was produced by Eddie Higgins who replaces Pike on one track. The guitar player is not known, but possibly it is Rosinha de Valenca. I have the original LP, this is a great record (real instrumental Bossa Nova) and the only one which is not reissued in CD yet.” zecalouro’s note: I decided to do not push our friend Oliver to get the LP, just to keep the discussion live! 🙂

Caetano Rodrigues shows a real excitement about Quiet Nights:

“This LP was not released in Brazil and was recorded in the USA, February, 1963, just before the anthological Carnegie Hall Show. This LP is FANTASTIC with Sergio backed up by Dave Pike. Eddie Higgins was invited by Dave Pike to play vibes on Insensatez, since Dave was unfamiliar with the harmony. The bass player was Tiao Neto, drumming is credited to Chico Batera. I spoke with Chico Batera to bring more clarification about this LP and Chico said that he did take part at the recording session and is quite sure that Edison Machado did it. The guitar player is still unknown. Hearing the acoustic guitar, it seems that Oscar Castro Neves or even Antonio Carlos Jobim would be playing.”

zecalouro reads today at BJBear71, complimentary information provided by Frank Oliver:

“Pianist Eddie Higgins was working in the recording booth at this session. Dave Pike had been playing vibes during the session but was unfamiliar with the melody for “Insensatez.” The group was running out of studio time, so Higgins started the tape and ran out into the studio and played vibes on this one track. The group was Sergio Mendes’ Brasil ’65. Another track in the album, “Abraco a Sergio,” was composed by Higgins and played by Mendes. The guitar player is unknown but it might be Rosinha de Valenca who was working with Mendes’ Brasil 65. The record was issued in 1967, but was recorded November 1964 or 1965. An interesting note about the session is that Mendes was brought in to record some background music for the Seeburg Company and was VERY upset when Philips put it out later as an album. That was not supposed to happen.”

Take your own conclusions. Some mysteries are still to be revealed. Take your time to discuss at Loronix Forum with our peers about this LP. Together, we can have all the answers revealed.

Before you run away to get the LP, please send your virtual compliments to Caetano Rodrigues who provided this record without noticing, just reading those initial comments from Bossanov and Frank Oliver. Thanks Caetano for another strike, our community should acclaim Quiet Nights.

Publicado em: Wednesday, September 12, 2007 by zecalouro

I was looking for this album since Loronix beginning and I found it with cvllos on a given vinyl expedition last month. The price was 1 Real (US$ .50) and when you find something you want by this price you just take it with no checking. First thing I did when arrived home was to put it to spin and I got scared when I saw a blue Copacabana label in the center of the vinyl and the word of Bienvenido Granda as main performer.

Parrots have no patience and are really focused. Then I remembered that someone sent it a long time ago as a contribution and I could not make it without the cover scans. That’s why we have here a blend of my cover with the files sent by a friend that did a pretty nice work. Let’s see.

This is Sivuca & Toots Thielemans – Chiko’s Bar (1986), for Sonet. I thought this album was a live recording of a concert at Chiko’s Bar nightclub, but it is an studio session, part of a project called “Rendez vous in Rio”, developed by Sonet producer Rune Ofwerman. Top-notch Brazilian musicians were in this session, as described at personnel listing, just before tracks. Tracks include:

Personnel

Sivuca
(accordion, vocal)
Toots Thielemans
(harmonica)
Luiz Avelar
(keyboards)
Luizao
(bass)
Ricardo Silveira
(guitar)
Paulinho Braga
(drums)
Ohana, Marcal
(percussion)
Clarence Ofwerman
(synthesizer, arrangements)

Track List

01 – I Just Called To Sy I Love You (Stevie Wonder)
02 – Vai Passar (Francis Hime / Chico Buarque de Hollanda)
03 – Sandra (Luiz Avellar)
04 – Imagine (John Lennon)
05 – Out of Nowhere (Eddie Heyman / Johnny Green)

I’m glad and really proud with our community by making this post. It has been less than a week since we started showing 78 rpm recordings and this is the first contribution in the format. By the way, fantastic contribution with a superb ripping and magnificent label scans. This little and old record is in a really good shape. It seems our friend – let’s call him as TNO – traveled back in time to get this record. Thanks a million TNO, you are The Number One in the 78 rpm format.

This is Dick Farney e Seu Quinteto – 78rpm | 16807 (1953), for Continental, featuring Dick Farney and not credited musicians as a quintet, performing instrumental renditions of a Samba tune and a Choro written by Dick Farney. Tracks include:

02 – Joao Sebastiao Bach (Dick Farney / Nestor Campos)

Quinteto de Dalton – O Melhor da Festa (1959)

Link original: Quinteto de Dalton – O Melhor da Festa (1959)
Publicado em: Tuesday, September 11, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Evening! We are starting the day with an album that I was not taking in consideration to Loronix. I was not confident on showing an artist credited only as Dalton. However, a Google search for another artist made a reference to a page inside All Music (one of the greatest music portal at the Internet), showing a biography about Dalton, which is in fact Dalton Vogeler, grandson of the conductor Henrique Vogeler and son of the violinist Carlos Vogeler Gomes.

It is amazing that AMG brings a biography of an pretty obscure musician such like Dalton Vogeler. He recorded only two LPs in the late 50’s, being a very active musician in 60’s, playing his sax and bass on many nightclubs, being also sideman of renowned musicians. Let’s see.

This is Quinteto de Dalton – O Melhor da Festa (1959), for International, featuring the sax of Dalton Vogeler with other four not credited musicians of his quintet. I recommend that you take a time to read Dalton Voleger in AMG, meanwhile, stay with O Melhor da Festa and Quinteto de Dalton. Tracks include:

01 – Beija-me (Roberto Martins / Mário Rossi)
02 – Mistura Fina (Luis Bandeira)
03 – Fascination (F. D. Marchetti)
04 – Who’s Sorry Now (T. Snyder / B. Kalmar / H. Ruby)
05 – Quando Anoitece (Waldemar Gomes / Cícero Nunes)
06 – Brigas Nunca Mais (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – Accarezzame (P. Calvi / Nisa)
08 – Nalani (A. Kaleolani)
09 – Perfume de Gardênia (R. Hernandez)
10 – Sin Ti (Pepe Guizar)
11 – Recado (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio)
12 – Triste Fim (Carlos S. Lima / Jaime Storino)

Publicado em: Tuesday, September 11, 2007 by zecalouro

This is a mandatory repost of a really important album to Loronix, released in the very beginning of our community. This post made me understand what exactly I could make with Loronix and what would be the website in the future. However, this is not only personal matters, this LP is truly awesome and everything works fine here. Strongly recommended for those who did not find it on archives yet or those ones who wants to revisit this album with major music and artwork improvements.

This is Elizeth Cardoso – Retrato da Noite (1958), for Copacabana. Little is know about this session and this is really disappointing. Elizeth is backed by a “Conjunto” with no credit to musicians. The guys from Copacabana did not care with technical information on releases. In the other hand, they were masters on cover artworks, look at this one, Elizeth Cardoso challenges us in front of a drink with diminished lights and wearing a red dressing in the same color of the red rose. Who can resist? Tracks include:

01 – Madame Fulano de Tal (Aliança) (Cyro Monteiro / Dias da Cruz)
02 – Pela Estrada (Nanai)
03 – E a Chuva Parou (Ribamar (1) / Esdras Pereira da Silva / Victor Freire)
04 – Cansei de Ilusões (Tito Madi)
05 – Por Causa de Você (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
06 – Bom Dia Tristeza (Adoniran Barbosa / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – Neste Mesmo Lugar (Armando Cavalcanti / Klécius Caldas)
08 – Por Acaso (Nanai / César Tedim)

Lina Pesce – Concerto em Ritmo (1963)

Link original: Lina Pesce – Concerto em Ritmo (1963)
Publicado em: Tuesday, September 11, 2007 by zecalouro

Let’s make a very different Para Dancar release today, pretty sophisticated by the way, featuring a Brazilian pianist and composer never introduced to Loronixers. I’m talking about Lina Pesce, perhaps the beautiful woman on this great cover artwork, but I’m not sure of it. Lina Pesce and Carolina Cardoso de Menezes are very similar artists, with Carolina being more identified as an instrumentalist while Lina Pesce as composer. Let’s see.

This is Lina Pesce – Concerto em Ritmo (1963), for Columbia, featuring orchestra with direction by Maestro Lyrio Panicalli. The second album recorded by Lina Pesce for Columbia, being the first dedicated to Lina Pesce compositions and Concerto em Ritmo, Lina Pesce renditions to classic music in Para Dancar style, both albums with orchestra directed by Lyrio Panicalli. I’m tracking down the first, it will be nice to hear Lina Pesce piano and Lyrio Panicalli orquestra playing Lina Pesce repertoire. Tracks include:

01 – Balada Nº 2 (Franz Liszt)
02 – Panorama (De “A Bela Adormecida”) (Tchaikovsky)
03 – Tema (De “Rapsódia Sobre Um Tema de Paganini”) (Rachmaninoff)
04 – Tema do Concerto Em Mi Menor Op 11 (Frederic Chopin)
05 – Valsa (De “O Lago dos Cisnes”) (Tchaikovsky)
06 – Tema de “Giselle” (Adam)
07 – Estudo Nº 12 Em Dó Menor Op 10 Nº 12 (Revolucionário) (Frederic Chopin)
08 – Valsa Nº 2 Em Lá Bemol Maior Op 34 Nº 1 (Frederic Chopin)
09 – Adágio (De “A Bela Adormecida”) (Tchaikovsky)
10 – Tema de “Don Quixote” (Minkus)

Publicado em: Monday, September 10, 2007 by zecalouro

I think friends are getting used as I’m used to these 78rpm releases, original scheduled to be a once in a week feature and now part of daily Loronix business as usual. It is very nice to show these albums and also very easy. As we are starting, there is always an opportunity to show a never released artist in the format and I’m trying to make only great names at this beginning, such as Os Cariocas.

This is Os Cariocas – 78rpm | 15893 (1948), for Copacabana, a very old record featuring on side A, Nova Ilusao and a classic tune on side B, Adeus America. I think this one will be the most popular among the 78-rpm released so far. Tracks include:

01 – Noa Ilusao (Jose Menezes / Luiz Bittencourt)
02 – Adeus America (Geraldo Jacques / Haroldo Barbosa)

Publicado em: Monday, September 10, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Evening! This is the second album by the Brazilian vocal group Boca Livre, a great improvement of what they have accomplished on their debut LP. Bicicleta has a better production and a very special guest on two tracks, Antonio Carlos Jobim. Let’s see.

This is Boca Livre – Bicicleta (1980), such as the first release, this album is an independent production, with no formal recording company association. Perhaps this is the reason for not receiving so far a CD reissue. I have this album since the release date and I got very surprised this week when notice Antonio Carlos Jobim participation. The Brazilian percussionist Nana Vasconcellos is credited as percussion direction and probably delivers percussion playing. My highlights are Antonio Carlos Jobim participation (both indicated on track list) and the song that gives the album title, Bicicleta, with a beautiful vocal arrangement. Tracks include:

Personnel

David Tygel
(viola, violao, vocal)
Jose Renato
(violao, vocal)
Mauricio Maestro
(bass, violao, viola, vocal, instrumental and vocal arrangements)
Lourenco Baeta
(violao, viola, vocal, flute, violin)

Track List

01 – Um Canto de Trabalho (Nelson Ângelo / Cacaso)
02 – As Moças (Zé Renato / Juca Filho)
03 – Correnteza (Tom Jobim / Luis Bonfá) with Antonio Carlos Jobim
04 – Neném (Maurício Maestro)
05 – Porto Seguro (David Tygel / Márcio Borges)
06 – Bicicleta (Zé Renato)
07 – Saci (Paulo Jobim / Ronaldo Bastos) with Antonio Carlos Jobim
08 – Passarinho (Lourenço Baeta)
09 – “Boi do Maranhão” – Urrou do Boi (Tradicional) – Boi do Pindaré (Tradicional) – Boi Danado (Sergio Habibe)

I arrive home this week and found a package with this fantastic record inside, sent by a great friend of mine, cvllos, a great Loronixer that knows by heart the albums available at Loronix. He is also a great finder, we have been together on some vinyl searches in Rio and I have a lot to learn with cvllos. By the way, he celebrated his birthday in the past week and this is a late, but very important, birthday gift to cvllos, the Genius of Victor Assis Brasil.

This is Victor Assis Brasil – Esperanto (1970), for Tapecar, produced and directed by Roberto Quartin, which is the guy who shows something to Victor on this back cover that really worth to be presented with the front cover. Esperanto is an outcome of the same recording session of Victor Assis Brasil – Jobim, which is the last Victor Assis Brasil at Loronix. Just like Jobim, Esperanto features a constellation of Brazilian musicians. I strongly recommend Esperanto, Victor shines with his sax, leaving space for others musician’s performances with all tracks written by Victor Assis Brasil. This is also the first time he plays soprano sax on recordings. Tracks include:

Personnel

Victor Assis Brasil
(sax alto, sax soprano)
Dom Salvador
(piano, organ)
Helio Delmiro
(guitar)
Edison Lobo
(bass)
Edison Machado
(drums)

Track List

Let’s check this repost of one of the albums that I like most at Loronix, featuring Fats Elpidio, a renowned Brazilian pianist that makes some different of what we are used to hear, he plays organ on this release. Everything is improved with this repost, from cover artworks to the music, including the FLAC alternative. Fats Elpidio performs a repertoire of Sambas and the arrangements are in charge of the great Maestro Nelsinho. I will keep part of my original text bellow.

This is Fats Elpidio e Seu Conjunto – Samba da Madrugada (1962), for Masterplay, featuring Fats Elpidio at the piano and a combo, with non-credited musicians. This Fats Elpidio work is pretty different from the last one, much more swinging and dedicated to Samba rhythms with organ playing. Tracks include:

01 – Gamação (João Roberto Kelly)
02 – Dá Uma Surra Nela (Fernando Costa / Rossini Pinto)
03 – Tamanco no Samba (Orlann Divo / Hélton Menezes)
04 – Gosto de Você de Graça (João Roberto Kelly)

Today I spent a time with my mother; she was desperately waiting for a new and fresh album by Angela Maria. That’s what I did; I took Angela Maria – Angela Maria em Tempo Jovem – not available at Loronix yet – receiving back this 10-inch compilation that she had the chance to find near her place. Mom is a great finder, but she finds only her favorites. It’s wise of her. Anyway, I have express orders to make it available today and I never use to ignore Mom’s request.

This is Angela Maria – Sucessos de Angela Maria Nr. 3 (no date), for Copacabana. This was probably released in the late 50’s. As a compilation of previous released material, it is possible to identify the release date. However, it demands a lot of work and Mom said it does not matter. Angela Maria is backed by orchestra in most of the tracks and the exceptions, Betinho e Seu Conjunto and Orquestra do Sindicato dos Musicos Profissionais do Rio de Janeiro are indicated on track list. Tracks include:

01 – Mentindo (Eduardo Patane / Lourival Faissal)
02 – A Chuva Caiu (Antonio Carlos Jobim / Luiz Bonfa) (1)
03 – Fantasma da Felicidade (Silvino Netto)
04 – Alegoria ao Musico (Cyro Monteiro / Dias da Cruz) (2)

Here we go on another 78rpm record, which is probably the most interest so far. This is Nilo Sergio, Musidisc owner, before creating Musidisc on his singer career. Nilo Sergio sings very well and in the old baritone style voice backed by Maestro Severino Araujo e Sua Orquestra Tabajara.

This is Nilo Sergio – 78rpm | 16085 (1949), for Continental, featuring Cancao de Aniversario, which is the song used on Brazilian birthday celebrations before the adoption of Parabens Pra Voce, based on Happy Birthday to You written by the American sisters Patty Hill and Mildred J. Hill in 1893. Cancao de Aniversario worth the entire record, Maestro Severino Araujo delivers a military accompaniment that makes me laugh when I hear this tune. Tracks include:

01 – Cancao de Aniversario (Jose Maria de Abreu / Alberto Ribeiro)
02 – Falta-me Alguem (Pedro Caetano / Claudionor Cruz)

Hello, Good Evening! Yesterday I was talking about statistics, numbers and how this parrot was a big fan of these things. I think I’m not alone on this. There is a page view counter on Loronix right sidebar that reached 1,000,000 page views today. I was not home and by the time I arrived, my mailbox was full of congratulations messages for such thing. Thanks, it is nice how friends like these numbers, specially Martoni, on a way I don’t know how could capture the exact time the counter was showing 1,000,000. Thanks, Martoni, your screen capture is now part of my gallery.

Anyway, the show must go on and I want to start today addressing many requests from the fans of Para Dancar style, they complain that I did not release the style in the last days. Let’s see.

This is Jose Luciano – Jose Luciano, Seu Piano, Seu Ritmo (1957), for Copacabana, the first out of three albums released by the Brazilian pianist Jose Luciano for Copacabana titled “Seu Piano, Seu Ritmo”. The first thing that comes to my mind when looking at this album and this cover artwork is to understand how such, how can I say, “sexy” cover is released in 1957. You should agree that this girl is really ahead of the “standards” of that time. Jose Luciano performs a repertoire of Sambas based on Brazilian and international standards. Tracks include:

01 – Tarde Demais (José Luciano)
02 – Conceição (Jair Amorim / Dunga)
03 – Love Is a Many Splendored Thing (Paul Francis Webster / S. Fain)
04 – Pois É (Ataulfo Alves)
05 – Crepúsculo de Amor (Vicente Paiva / Lita Rodrigues)

I’m a statistics driven parrot. I spend a time browsing numbers. I love these things. I like to see the numbers and understand what we have behind them. Maria Creuza is a special case, in spite of no explicit feedback from Loronixers, her albums are downloaded by many friends, above the average of others. Perhaps it is her participation on La Fusa with Vinicius de Moraes and Toquinho, I don’t know. Anyway, this is in response of the great feedback given to Maria Creuza, let’s see.

This is Maria Creuza – Maria Creuza (1972), for RGE. I was used with Maria Creuza releases for RCA and had a great difficult on finding info about this one. RCA Victor uses to enclose personnel information and sometimes even associates musicians with their participation on each track. You will see with the music that RGE do not give any kind of information, on back cover. That’s why personnel is not credited this time, except by the participation of Sebastiao Tapajos, information available on both Side A and B labels. Tracks include:

01 – De Onde Vens (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta)
02 – Você Já Foi à Bahia (Dorival Caymmi)
03 – Eu e a Brisa (Johnny Alf)
04 – Queixas (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi)
05 – João Valentão (Dorival Caymmi)
06 – Mas Que Doidice (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi)
07 – Ossain (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi / Tavares)
08 – Foi a Noite (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
09 – Morena Flor (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)

Anyway, Lucio Alves performs with orchestra lead by Severino Araujo two songs, Valsa de uma Cidade (Antonio Maria / Ismael Neto) and Velho Amor (Lourenco Leonardo / Olavo Bertoni). Tracks include:

01 – Valsa de Uma Cidade (Antonio Maria / Ismael Neto)

This is Sadao Watanabe – Elis (1989), for BMG. Sadao Watanabe is a Japanese sax player with strong connections with the music from Brazil, releasing several albums dedicated to our country, most of them recorded here. This one is a perfect example, a tribute to Elis Regina featuring Cesar Camargo Mariano, Heitor TP, Paulinho Braga, Nico Assumpcao, Papeti and the most frequent Sadao Watanabe Brazilian collaborator, Toquinho as special guest on two tracks. I had a little time to hear this album and review it to Loronixers, but it is highly recommended by many reviewers and I cannot wait to take a second hearing. Tracks include:

I don’t have info available on Loronixers feedback to MPB-4; perhaps we did not release many albums or made wrong choices. I hope this one corrects any gaps Loronix has with this really important Brazilian vocal group. Thanks to Marcia Webber for showing zecalouro the way to this album, for sure one of the best ones released by MPB-4. I spoke with Caetano about this album and he gave an enthusiastic feedback, which is something that Caetano only gives to the ones that really deserves.

This is MPB-4 – De Palavra… em Palavra… (1971), for Elenco. I’m only disappointed for not having additional information on this session that had Roberto Menescal playing the role of Production Director. The back cover also credits Magro as arranger, but it is not specific if he is also in charge of instrumental arrangements. The repertoire is beautiful, with songs that will keep inside your head after a first hearing. Tracks include:

Personnel

Magro

Aquiles

Miltinho

Ruy

Hello, Good Evening! This is the first out of three non-working days in Brazil. Everybody left the city to quiet places, coming back on Sunday night or Monday. I like these big weekends, people leave to quiet places and Rio de Janeiro stays, how can I say, quiet. I took a time today to climb a military facility close to my place, which is Pedra do Leme. The place has a Fort with several cannons to protect the city. Obviously, the Fort is no longer working, but the military use to put some cannons in service once in a while, such as today. Wow, my ears still have problem by the cannon noise, but the day was really nice. You can follow this link to know more about the spot.

Let’s take advantage of these low traffic days to release some very old wants and needs of Loronixers, starting with this one that really worth your attention.

This is Claudia – Deixa eu Dizer (1973), for Odeon. Little I know about this album, except it is the most successful LP recorded by this Brazilian singer, featuring songs by her own and others from Caetano Veloso, Ivan Lins, Gonzaguinha, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Dorival Caymmi and others.

I hope the problems that happened yesterday with the last post of the day are over, since this one really deserves a flawless exhibition. If you were looking for this album, you should say thanks to Loronixer Marcos, he was the one that told me this LP was a Zimbo Trio career album.

Shame on zecalouro. He always thought this was a compilation with music taken from other records; perhaps this simple cover artwork was not inspiring enough to get my attention. Anyway, thanks Marcos, you made me understand that I had a Zimbo Trio career album that I never heard and also never released at Loronix.

This is Zimbo Trio – Zimbo Trio (1978), for Clam / Continental, featuring Zimbo Trio original formation and several special guest of not, such as Heraldo do Monte and the son of the clarinetist Domingos Pecci, Eduardo Pecci, also known as Lambari from Quarteto Lambari.

Remember an album released in February 2007 featuring an organist known as Ivan Casanova that later on we realize it was Walter Wanderley? If you do not remember, just follow this link and you are set, here. I thought that was the only album recorded by this Ivan Casanova nickname at Imperial label. However, I found another one and I thought it was another great thing to have another never heard Walter Wanderley album.

Unfortunately, no organ and no Walter Wanderley this time. In the other hand, the album is really good, on that Para Dancar style, but really above the average and deserves to be available to our community. Let’s see.

This is Ivan Casanova e Seus Conjuntos – Melodias dos Filmes Celebres (no date), for Imperial. A very well played album with songs from movie soundtracks, different from the earlier Ivan Casanova. My highlights go to sax, piston and trombone, very well played, probably by well-known musicians. Tracks include:

01 – Singing in the Rain
02 – Blue Skies
03 – An Affair to Remember
04 – Ebb Tide
05 – Unchained Melody
06 – Around the World
07 – Be my Love

10 – Love is a Tender Trap

12 – Whatever Will Be, Will Be

This is Dolores Duran – 78rpm | 5488 (1955), for Copacabana. Let’s feedback this release. I’m making available at Rapidshare as “Type 1”, which is a direct link to the album with no waiting time, just to make easy your evaluation. I think it is a good idea to release one or two per week.

Publicado em: Thursday, September 06, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Evening! I want to start the day with something new and really unique, which is the legendary and pioneer instrumental / vocal band A Cor do Som. How many friends who live outside Brazil had the chance to hear or even know the existence of this group? Probably less than a half by this parrot estimates, actually, these guys made wonderful things and I think they deserve much more recognition.

Some friends in Brazil would say they do not belong to Loronix, but I think they are even a missing piece. A Cor do Som blends several different styles with the strength of never loosing focus on Brazilian music. They mix jazz, rock, progressive, frevo, samba, baiao, MPB and are great performers as instrumental or vocal group. I’m showing A Cor do Som album that has only instrumental tracks and I’m sure that later we will be amazed when hearing them singing as a vocal group.

This is A Cor do Som – Ao Vivo, no Montreux Internacional Jazz Festival (1979), for Warner, featuring the original formation with Mu (keyboards), Dadi (bass), Armandinho (guitarra baiana), Aroldo (guitarra baiana), Gustavo (drums) and Ary (percussion). Armandinho is the same renowned guitarist, inventor of the guitarra baiana, an electrified version of cavaquinho. Someone said this week that every Montreux Festival cut is worth checking. This one really rocks. Tracks include:

Publicado em: Wednesday, September 05, 2007 by zecalouro

Since the first month of Loronix, several friends have been asking for an album by this Brazilian group Les 4 Cadillacs, a creation of Nilo Sergio, Musidisc owner. The reason is the presence of Ed Lincoln at the piano on every album by this quartet. Since then, I found the first and decided to wait for the second, when I found the second I thought it was better waiting for the third. This is the third one, slight better than the others, just for Ed Lincoln fans and completionists.

This is Les 4 Cadillacs – Doucement, Mon Amour… (1962), for Masterpiece Master, Musidisc subsidiary, featuring Ed Lincoln at the piano and the other remain not credited Cadillacs at bass, drums and guitar. The quartet performs an easy listening repertoire based on American and French music. As I said before, this is fans and completionists stuff. Tracks include:

01 – As Time Goes By (H. Hupfeld)
02 – La Mer (Charles Trenet)
03 – You Belong To Meu (C. Price / R. Stewart / P. Weking)
04 – Marie Marie (Gilbert Bécaud / Delanoe)
05 – Melancolie (A. Romans)
06 – Oui Oui Oui (Cour / Giraud)
07 – Just One Of Those Things (Cole Porter)
08 – Ruby (H. Roemheld / M. Parish)
09 – My Foolish Heart (V. Young / N. Washington)

11 – You Stepped Out Of a Dream (N. H. Brown / Guskahn)
12 – Moon River (J. Mercer / Henry Mancini)

Publicado em: Wednesday, September 05, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Evening! I was browsing past statistics today and I noticed those few classical music albums releases in the past month had a great interest of our community. I’m talking about Encontro, the collaboration between Clara Sverner, Turibio Santos, Paulo Moura and Olivia Byington, Turibio Santos first LP for Caravelle and Maria Lucia Godoy, O Canto da Amazonia with Neco’s guitar. The numbers are really surprising with Maria Lucia Godoy and Turibio Santos being the leaders. Let’s make Loronix goes classical again.

This is Turibio Santos – Villa Lobos (1971), for MIS and issued by RCA Victor, the second Turibio Santos tribute to the Brazilian Maestro Heitor Villa Lobos, recorded in Paris. This is a truly beautiful record, Side A has Turibio Santos accompanied by Orquestra de Camara Jean-Francois Paillard, featuring flute, oboe, sax, celesta and harp, performing Sexteto Mistico, composed by Villa Lobos in 1917. Side B is Turibio Santos guitar performing alone five Villa Lobos preludios. It is hard to say which is the nicest side, but I had a slight preference for Side B, it is very nice to hear Turibio Santos performing alone. I urge Loronixers to feedback this release using comments section. Tracks include:

I dedicate this post to theses friends. They are from a special group of Loronixers that keep contact with me using email or instant messaging until the final post, giving feedback and support.

This is Paulinho da Viola – Paulinho da Viola (1971), for Odeon. Guess who is the arranger of another above the average Paulinho da Viola album? Just look at the previous post to get the answer, Lindolfo Gaya, in charge of all tracks. Paulinho da Viola is one of the most sophisticated Samba interpreter and composer I have ever seen, thanks to a special friend among the group of “late at night friends”, he was responsible for introducing to zecalouro Paulinho da Viola, which I have special pleasure introducing to all Loronix community.

Publicado em: Wednesday, September 05, 2007 by zecalouro

Maestro Lindolfo Gaya is without a doubt one of the greatest arrangers of Brazilian popular music. Most of the albums available at Loronix has Lindolfo Gaya as collaborator as arranger, producer and mainly by the years he was in service of Odeon and RCA Victor as Musical Director. In the other hand, Gaya solo albums are not well represented at Loronix, with a few exceptions. Let’s start gathering Maestro Gaya solo albums, this is the first, very different from what is expected by we use to know by him.

This is Lindolfo Gaya – Gaya (1970), for Odeon. I’ve been wondering today what Maestro Gaya and Odeon had in mind to release this album. It is very similar, or even based on the acclaimed Jose Briamonte – Briamonte Orchestra (1970), for Elenco, released in the same year and with the same concept of dancing orchestration with female chorus on top of blockbusters. Additionally, both albums share two tracks, Airport Love Theme and Tema de Cristina. Anyway, if you are a fan of Maestro Gaya, member of the legion of Briamonte Orchestra appreciators and also in the mood of a Erlon Chaves with Banda Veneno album, this is the flawless pick. Tracks include:

01 – Viagem (Taiguara)
02 – Airport Love Theme (A. Newmann)
03 – Let It Be (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)
04 – Tema de Cristina (José Briamonte)
05 – Reflections Of My Life (Campbell / McAleese)
06 – Yellow River (J. Christi)
07 – Close To You (H. David / Burt Bacharach)

Hello, Good Evening! moos never stops amazing me. His great passion to the Music from Brazil and the work he is doing on improving his ripping and image processing skills makes me feel very proud of having moos as our great friend. He sent this fantastic album using the Mail Big File icon and just wrote a message with no signature. Maybe I’m wrong, but I’m quite sure this LP came from moos. If I’m wrong, please correct me. If I’m right, moos, say hello, please.

This is Tema 3 – Madrugada 1:30 (1969), for Equipe, following the very nice Tema Tres – Tema 3 (1966), for Atonal. Release date is uncertain (*** not anymore, Justin sent the correct date on comments section) but it was probably released in 1967 or 1968. Tema 3 is lead by the Brazilian pianist and maestro Gilson Peranzzetta, credited as Gilson Peranz by Equipe. The trio also features Luiz Roberto (bass) and Atayde (drums) with the special guest, arranger and violao player Alberto Arantes. I’m not sure if the bassist Luiz Roberto is the same from Os Cariocas, this is something that Loronixers can confirm on comments. Several others musicians are credited as special guests on some tracks, you can check the full listing inside the music. Thanks moos, you are a great finder. Tracks include:

Marilia Medalha took me by surprise a week ago when Loronixers gave a very good feedback on comments and downloads of her debut a LP for Philips. I decided to call her back to our community, not alone this time, but accompanied by two great Bossa Nova icons, Vinicius de Moraes and Toquinho.

This is Vinicius, Marilia Medalha e Toquinho – Como Dizia o Poeta… Musica Nova (1971), for RGE. It seems to be impossible for Vinicius de Moraes and Toquinho to make a regular album, perhaps even if they want to make it. They also have a special talent to bring Brazilian Divas for collaborations and make them shine, delivering their best. The repertoire features a couple of well-known songs by the duo, with highlights to Tarde em Itapoan, Como Dizia o Poeta and Na Tonga da Mironga do Kabulete, arrangements by Maestro Jose Briamonte. Musica Nova is that kind of album that saves your whole day if you take it for a hearing in the morning as your first thing you do. Tracks include:

01 – Tarde Em Itapoã (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Como Dizia o Poeta (Sobre o Adágio de Albinoni) (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Tomara (Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Valsa Para o Ausente (Vinicius de Moraes / Marília Medalha)
05 – Samba de Gesse (Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – A Tonga da Mironga do Kabuletê (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes) with Monsueto
07 – A Bênção Bahia (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – Mais Um Adeus (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – A Vez do Dombe (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
