This post is to show my commitment to deliver a unforgettable Samba Saturday tomorrow. Friends like moos and many other Samba enthusiasts are getting disappointed with 3 non-Samba weekends at Loronix and there is nothing more associated with Samba than Clara Nunes. Let’s see.

This is Clara Nunes – Guerreira (1978), for Odeon. We have here a late album by Clara Nunes, featuring a mature artist with total control of his interpretation and beautiful voice. The first track gives the album title and worth the entire record. I’m not knowledgeable on Clara Nunes discography, so I’m taking in consideration my listening experience and this one is so far the most pleasant Clara Nunes I have ever heard. Personnel features a constellation of Brazilian musicians with three Maestros in charge of arrangements, as highlighted on track list. Tracks include:


Dino 7 Cordas
(violao 7 cordas)
Wilson das Neves
Pedro Santos, Marcal, Luna, Elizeu, Doutor, Cabelinho, Milton

I’m a parrot that does not take compilations so much in consideration, being eventually hooked by some exceptions, such like this one issued by Continental as a tribute to Dorival Caymmi music. I think even Dorival Caymmi would like to take this one for a spin. A Musica de Dorival Caymmi features the best of Dorival Caymmi music performed by several artists, with one single exception, 08 – E Doce Morrer no Mar, performed by Dorival Caymmi. The repertoire selection and performers makes the difference here, we have some artists will make you feel the willing of getting more by their solo works. Let’s see.

This is A Musica de Dorival Caymmi (1981), for Continental, featuring various artists performing Dorival Caymmi music, such as: Os Novos Baianos, Aquarius, Osmar Milito, Titulares do Ritmo, Os 3 Morais, Ed Lincoln, among others. The variety of styles having Dorival Caymmi music in common is what makes this compilation unique. Tracks include:

Saraiva – Sobre o Ritmo das Ondas (1964)

Link original: Saraiva – Sobre o Ritmo das Ondas (1964)
Publicado em: Friday, October 05, 2007 by zecalouro

We have been with great Brazilian sax players since Loronix beginning, such like Paulo Moura, Moacyr Silva, Zito Righi, Juarez Araujo and many others. However, some others musicians that dedicated his life to this instrument or this family of instrument did not reach our website already. This post comes to show one of these artists that never had a career album made available to our community, although active on recordings or studio sessions. I think that Saraiva is a great start to this series, I could not find much info about him, but he recorded several albums, being this one his first. Let’s see.

This is Saraiva – Sobre o Ritmo das Ondas (1964), for Continental, presented here by a mid-70’s Phonodisk reissue. Saraiva does not keep his playing connected with a given style, delivering Sambas, Boleros and mostly Choros. You will not find Bossa Nova standard tunes at Sobre o Ritmo das Ondas, all tracks are composed by Luiz dos Santos, which is probably the own Saraiva. I think Loronixers will receive Saraiva with enthusiasm; this is a very nice record, released in the Bossa Nova age with a repertoire of Choros, a genre that almost disappeared during the 60’s. Tracks include:

01 – Bodas de Ouro (Luis dos Santos / Alfredo Celso)
02 – Corintiano (Luis dos Santos / Palmeira)
03 – Célio no Baião (Luis dos Santos / Nairson Menezes)
04 – Não Me Toque Assim (Luis dos Santos / Leonel Cruz)
05 – Mulher Fingida (Luis dos Santos / Palmeira)
06 – Galera do Nelson (Luis dos Santos / Teixeira Filho)
07 – Relembrando o Passado (Luis dos Santos / Ivanildo José da Silva)
08 – Selma (Luis dos Santos / Nelson Machado)
09 – É Disso Que Eu Gosto (Luis dos Santos / Milton José)
10 – A Natureza (Luis dos Santos / J. Luna)
11 – Morada Perdida (Luis dos Santos / Waldemar Pimentel)
12 – Foi de Lá Que Eu Vim (Luis dos Santos / Victor Settanni)

Hareton Salvanini – S.P. / 73 (1973)

I could not believe when I found this album at the R$ 1 (one Real, or US$ .50c) section of an influential vinyl store in Rio de Janeiro. Perhaps a new employee did it by mistake because the eyes of the shop owner went big as a golf ball and his humor changed when I claimed this album by this price. Some sellers at e-bay are listing this piece for more than a US$ 100.

Anyway, this is not the reason that I’m reposting this album, Hareton Salvanini – S.P. / 73 (1973) is really unique and deserves this “remastered” version with updates on cover artwork and also a new ripping, with FLAC files option. Let’s see.

This is Hareton Salvanini – S.P. / 73 (1973), for Continental, featuring the arranger, composer, singer and multi instrumentalist Hareton Salvanini, a pretty unknown artist for Brazil mass audience that recorded some albums in the early 70’s and then changed his career to jingle and soundtrack recording with more than 5,000 works delivered in decades. This album is still fresh after more than 30 years with Hareton Salvanini delivering orchestra, psychodelia, jazz and funk on a very well done melting pot that will make you feel like hearing Prelude by Eumir Deodato. I urge Loronixers to send feedback at comment section to help us understand a little bit more of Hareton Salvanini and his acclaimed S.P. / 73. Tracks include:


Rosario de Caria
(flute, piccolo)
Francesco Pezzella
(oboe, English horn)
Eduardo Pecci “Lambari”, Demetrio Santos Lima
(flute, clarinet, sax alto)
Izidoro Longano “Bolao”
(clarinet, sax tenor, flute)
Carlos A. de Alcantara Pereira “Mosquito”
(clarinet, sax tenor, flute)
Silvio Oliani, Francesco Celano
Heraldo do Monte
(guitar, violao, viola 12 cordas)
Mario Casali
(piano, organ, cravo)
Hareton Salvanini
(piano, celeste)
Sebastiao J. Gilberto “Butinao”, Settimo Paioletti, Geraldo Aunieni “Felpudo”, Dorival Auriani “Buda”
Severino Gomes da Silva “Biu”, Renato Cauchioli, Arlindo Bonadio, Iran Fortuna
Rubens de Souza Soares “Rubao”
(tumbadoras, percussion)
Antonino de Almeida “Toniquito”
Gabriel J. Bahlis

Publicado em: Friday, October 05, 2007 by zecalouro

This album was supposed to be one of the greatest zecalouro’s mother findings ever. Let’s say it still her great finding, but there is a major and unacceptable failure with this album. The vinyl played perfect on side A, however, side B is exactly the same as side A. Columbia made both sides as A by mistake. Such like the missing Joao Gilberto track, I’m now asking for Loronixers help to find the missing side B of this fantastic album. Let’s see, half of it.

This is Matematica, zero… Amor, Dez… (1958), for Columbia, the OST of the Brazilian movie, featuring a constellation at t cast with acting performances of Lyrio Panicali (as Lyrio Panicali e Sua Orquestra), Tito Madi, Lana Bittencourt, Maysa Mattarazo (as Maysa), Sylvio Mazzucca (as Sylvio Mazucca e Sua Orquestra), Sergio Murilo, Carlos Machado, Luiz Claudio and others, almost all the artists we know acting. Unfortunately, only side A is available. Tracks include:

01 – Menina Moça (Luis Antônio) – Tito Madi
02 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso) – Lana Bittencourt
03 – Sax Cantabile (Armando Dominguez) – Silvio Mazzuca e Sua Orquestra
04 – Avental da Pastora (Luis Antônio / Amado Regis) – Coro Columbia
05 – Rosa Morena (Dorival Caymmi) – Trigêmeos Vocalistas
06 – Vassourinha (Mathias da Rocha / Joana Batista Ramos) – Lyrio Panicali e Sua Orquestra
07 – On The Button (Nº 5) (J. J. Donnelly / V. L. Mott) – Banda Marcial do Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais
08 – O Milagre da Volta (Fernando César / A. Cavalcanti) – Lana Bittencourt (*)
09 – Apito no Samba (Luis Bandeira) – Lyrio Panicali e Sua Orquestra (*)
10 – Rock de Morte (Nadir Peres / Lyrio Panicali) – Sergio Murilo (*)
11 – The Thunderer (Nº 9) (J. P. Souza / J. J. Donnelly / V. L. Mott) – Banda Marcial do Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais (*)
12 – Chora Pierrot (Luis Antônio) – Alcides Gerardi (*)
13 – Recado (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio) – Luis Cláudio (*)
14 – Marcha dos Fuzileiros Navais (Na Vanguarda) (Luis Cândido da Silveira) – Banda doCorpo de Fuzileiros Navais (*)

(*) at the missing side.


Como comentado pelo Zeca, apenas o lado A do disco estava disponível. Porém, nosso amigo Leandro do blog The Best of Vinil nos enviou o disco completo, que foi processado pelo amigo Pedro e publicado pelo Milan no Parallel Realities.
