It is truly amazing the feedback given to Ademilde Fonseca on two recently released records. I admit that she was not on my radar and if there is someone who should receive credits for the recent Ademilde Fonseca posts is Elso Legey, he was the first to shout out loud at CBox for an Ademilde Fonseca album. It is hard to believe that Ademilde Fonseca released only a few records on a career that spans decades. This album was recorded in 1975 and follows immediately Choros Famosos (1962), a hiatus of 13 years on recordings. Let’s see.

This is Ademilde Fonseca – A Rainha do Chorinho (1975), for Top Tape, featuring Ademilde Fonseca chorinho standards with some new compositions, including Titulos de Nobreza “Ademilde no Choro” written by Joao Bosco and Aldir Blanc as a gift to Ademilde Fonseca. I think this album is a real find, a breathtaking constellation of Brazilian musicians were in this session, and among many other surprises, I got really amazed with the open tune, Choro Chorao, a choro composition by the Samba legend Martinho da Vila. I think Loronixers will also be amazed with this really nice album, it seems that everybody likes Ademilde Fonseca. Tracks include:

Chaim Lewak e Seu Conjunto – Para Ouvir Amando Nr. 3 (1959)

Hello, good evening! Let’s start this Sunday with an artist that I had the chance to know by a recommendation of the great Caetano Rodrigues, the great Chaim Lewak. This is the second Chaim Lewak album available at Loronix as main performer and I recommend that you get along with the first one with Chaim Lewak and his Quarteto Nostalgia, here.

Chaim Lewak was born in Israel and arrived in Brazil in 1955, hired by the legendary Vogue nightclub. In spite of being a foreigner musician, Chaim got the Brazilian way of playing very fast, becoming a legendary pianist in the nightclub scene in Rio de Janeiro. Chaim also played and collaborated on several albums recorded by Moacyr Silva. He left Brazil and moved to US on an uncertain date, probably in the late 60’s. Let’s see.

This is Chaim Lewak e Seu Conjunto – Para Ouvir Amando Nr. 3 (1959), for Copacabana, presented here by a Som label reissue with uncertain date. Taking in consideration the repertoire and the album title, Para Ouvir Amando Nr. 3 is a “Para Dancar” release, but Chaim Lewak piano playing is always worth checking out as well remaining musicians in this session, not credited by Som at this reissue. Tracks include:

01 – Perfume de Gardênia (R. Hernandez) The Secret (J. Lubin / I. J. Roth)
02 – Smoke Gets In Your Eyes (J. Kern / O. Harbach) Symphonie (Alstone)
03 – Petite Fleur (S. Bechel)
04 – Piove (Modugno / Verde) Conoscerti (D’Anzi)
05 – Balada Triste (Dalton Vogeler / Esdras Pereira da Silva)
06 – Castigo (Dolores Duran)
07 – Fascination (F. D. Marchetti)
08 – Tu Somente Tu (Anísio Silva / Jonas Garret)
09 – Siete Notas de Amor (Santiago Alvarado)
10 – Non Dimenticar (P. G. Redi / M. Galdieri)
11 – Ontem e Hoje (Irany de Oliveira / Getúlio Macedo)
12 – Não Digo o Nome (Jair Amorim)

Caetano Veloso – Bicho (1977)

I could not resist showing another Caetano Veloso album that went recently out of print again. Perhaps I’m really bored with the infrastructure problems that happened this weekend and decided to make another of my Caetano Veloso favorites. Anyway, what I’m really sure is that you cannot miss this one. It is really hard to review Caetano Velloso as it is very hard to get the whole experience of his records in a first hearing. Take care with this one. In spite of being a fantastic song, the opening track features some funky and disco music arrangements that do not represents the rest of the album, which is truly beautiful. Let’s see.

This is Caetano Veloso – Bicho (1977), for Philips, frequently taken by mistake as Caetano Veloso & Banda Black Rio – Bicho Baile Show, recorded one year later. Bicho is the outcome of Caetano Veloso experiences with African music, by the time he attended the Negro Festival of Art and Culture in Lagos, Nigeria. I know this album by heart and probably many friends who live in Brazil know most of these tunes. My highlights goes to 02 – Two Naira Fifty Kobo, 04 – Olha o Menino and my favorite, 09 – Alguem Cantando, with the special participation of Nicinha, Caetano Veloso’s sister. Tracks include:

Personnel

Thomas Improta, Antonio Adolfo
(piano)
Perinho Santana, Perinho Albuquerque
(guitar, violao)
Arnaldo Brandao, Moacyr Albuquerque, Luizao, Rubao Sabino
(bass)
Vinicius Cantuaria, Eneas Costa
(drums)
Djalma Correa, Bira da Silva, Eneas Costa
(percussion)
Hamilton, Maestro Formiga, Wanderley
(trumpet)
Joao, Macacheira
(trombone)
Emilio, Juarez Araujo, Tuze Abreu, Raul Mascarenhas
(sax)

Track List

01 – Odara (Caetano Veloso)
02 – Two Naira Fifty Kobo (Caetano Veloso)
03 – Gente (Caetano Veloso)
04 – Olha o Menino (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
05 – Um Índio (Caetano Veloso)
06 – A Grande Borboleta (Caetano Veloso)
07 – Tigresa (Caetano Veloso)
08 – O Leãozinho (Caetano Veloso)
09 – Alguém Cantando (Caetano Veloso) with Nicinha

Aloysio e Seu Conjunto – Na Ciranda do Samba (1962)

Hello, good evening! We had a sunny and hot day in Rio de Janeiro with a very strong thunderstorm in the end of the evening. I believe in Murphy’s Law, so I had to turn down the master switch of Loronix Data Center facilities (which is in fact a very old notebook) until thunders cease. Several thunders reach the sea, leaving a smell of ozone at the atmosphere.

That is the reason we are having another late start today. Additionally, Loronix hosting service at dreamhost.com has been out of service since yesterday. Life has not been easy down here. FLAC files will be postponed for tomorrow.

This is Aloysio e Seu Conjunto – Na Ciranda do Samba (1962), for Copacabana, featuring the Brazilian vocal group Os Modernistas with the crooner Cacau. Aloysio delivers groovy Hammond B3 organ playing on top of Samba renditions of Brazilian tunes. Everything works really nice with this album and Aloysio and his accompaniment band will amaze you, highly recommended and really in the spirit of a Samba Saturday at Loronix. Tracks include:

Personnel

Aloysio Figueiredo
(organ, arrangements, production)
Cacau
(guitar, vocals)
Arruda
(drums)
Djalma
(bass)
Arnaldo
(agogo)
Waldir
(pandeiro)
Walter Arruda
(tamborim, tumbadora)
Os Modernistas
(vocals)

Track List

01 – Chorando Chorando (Armando Cavalcanti / Édson Borges)
02 – Tamanco no Samba (Orlandivo / Hélton Menezes)
03 – Chorou (Djalma de Carvalho / Cacau)
04 – Maria Mária Mariá (Billy Blanco)
05 – Lamento Bebop (Luis Reis / Haroldo Barbosa)
06 – Meu Nome É Ninguém (Luis Reis / Haroldo Barbosa)
07 – Liberdade Demais (Mariano Filho / Hélio Nascimento)
08 – A Lavadeira (Herivelto Martins)
