Lenita Bruno - Por Toda a Minha Vida

It is amazing how maturity makes us take things from a different perspective. That’s the feeling I had when took this album again for a hearing, perhaps after more than a decade interval. My previous opinion was of a dated album, which got stuck in time through a style of interpretation and arrangements that was out of my preferences. However, since the day Jose Matos gave it to our community, I take it for a spin every day. Thank you again Jose Matos. Now it is time to show it to Loronixers. Let’s see.

This is Lenita Bruno e Orquestra – Musica: Antonio Carlos Jobim, Poesia: Vinicius de Moraes | Por Toda Minha Vida (1959), for Festa, featuring arrangements by Maestro Leo Peracchi, Lenita Bruno’s husband at that time and not credited at the album due contractual obligations with Odeon. It is really nice to hear very different renditions of well-known Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes music with the beautiful Lenita Bruno lyric singing with the reduced, but perfectly adequate arrangements by Maestro Leo Peracchi. Maestro Radames Gnattali plays piano at Canta, Canta Mais, which is the track selected to Loronix Preview Center. I made several attempts to clean the back cover with no success; it brings liner notes by Antonio Carlos Jobim. You will find a version with no image processing inside the music. If someone skilled on Photoshop can make it, I will really appreciate.

Estou lhe Devendo um Sorriso

Hello, good evening! Rumors of my demise in the last two days are absolutely true. It was for a good reason, I decided to create a personal marathon to end this Saturday with all 2008 and 2007 links fixed. Unfortunately, I failed. The first two weeks of January 2007 are still pending, but I have to admit we are above my most optimistic initial estimates of the reactivation. If I have extra energy, I will make a detailed status report with the reconstruction work facts.

Today is Saturday and Saturday is the day of Samba at Loronix and Samba is Jair Rodrigues. Let’s see.

This is Jair Rodrigues – Estou lhe Devendo um Sorriso (1980), for Philips, featuring this wonderful cover that perfectly reproduces all elements found in an authentic Roda de Samba in the suburb of Rio de Janeiro, with bottles of beer, rope hanging clothes, the table, the towel style, the snacks and one exception, the green coconuts. I never saw a Roda de Samba with people drinking coconut water. Actually, I never have been in a Roda de Samba. Jair Rodrigues shows a wilder side, with lots of Samba root tracks with the arrangements by Wilson Mauro, Luiz Roberto (Os Cariocas) and Maestro Aécio Flavio. Unfortunately, Philips did not credit musicians. Tracks include:

01 – Estou Lhe Devendo Um Sorriso (Serafim Adriano)
02 – Conversa Fora (Ari do Cavaco / Otacílio)
03 – Cantarola (Wando / Nilo Amaro / Leônidas Paulo)
04 – Mestre Sala do Amor (Evaldo Gouveia / Jair Amorim)
05 – Mais Feliz Quem Sabe Perdoar (Noca da Portela / Daniel Santos)
06 – Ponto Central (Walmir Lima / Jandyr Aragão)
07 – Falso Baiano (Gê Martins / Otacílio)
08 – Moro no Morro (Zuzuca)
09 – Madrigais (Meu Sexto Sentido) (Talismã / Raimundo Prates)
10 – Salve a Bahia (João Nogueira / Edil Pacheco)
11 – Lenda do Rei dos Vaqueiros e do Boi Mandingueiro (Chico Xavier)
12 – Mané Fogueteiro (João de Barro)

Luiz Carlos Vinhas - Novas Estruturas

Hello, good evening! The upgrade of this album was quite expected, at least for me, it is one of my favorites and another album that I had the chance to hear for the first time before Loronix was created. I’m making available the converted audio from the original Forma first 1965 issue, as FM-2. By the way, Novas Estruturas is here as the first and already unforgettable contribution of Jose Matos, Loronixer since the early days, which usually observe things without expressing much, but is a great friend and a avid consumer of Brazilian music. I spent a time today with Jose Matos to receive this album (and some others that will be released in the forthcoming days) and he said this album belongs to him since the first day he left the shop, on February 15, 1965, just one day before I was born. At least is what Jose Matos wrote at the back cover. Let’s see.

This is Luiz Carlos Vinhas – Novas Estruturas (1964), for Forma, one of the most exciting Samba Jazz albums released in the 60’s, featuring the piano of Luiz Carlos Vinhas backed up by a constellation of Brazilian musicians, which is something unclear since the first Loronix issue at December 2006. Jose Matos said this music sounds as it was recorded last month and I have to agree with him, Novas Estruturas is a truly amazing album and I’m very happy to make it on Loronix first page again. Personnel listing is detailed at the back cover scan available inside the music. Tracks include:

Jacob Do Bandolim & Época De Ouro - Vibrações

I’m not exaggerating and I’m very calm and confident to say that Vibracoes is among the top ten albums available at the entire collection of Loronix, which has registered more than 1700 albums until now. This masterpiece was first made available at June 2007, through a CD transfer made by a friend of a given late 90’s reissue. It is time to do it again, now with the audio transferred from the original 1967 RCA first issue, including hi-res scans from the front and back cover, full of information written by Jacob do Bandolim. Let’s see.

This is Jacob do Bandolim e Seu Conjunto Epoca de Ouro – Vibracoes (1967), for RCA Candem. Listen, even if you do not appreciate choro, bandolim or instrumental music. Jacob do Bandolim and Epoca de Ouro deliver definitive interpretations and not yet overcame of standards, including also Jacob do Bandolim compositions and his magnificent Vibracoes, with overwhelming Jacob do Bandolim playing that no one is able to remain indifferent, even those who do not have a particular relationship we have with Brazilian music. I would rely on the willingness of all to exchange comments on this anthological album. Tracks include:


Jacob do Bandolim

Dino 7 Cordas

Cesar Faria and Carlinhos
Gilberto D’Avila

Link original: Varios Artistas – Introducao (1965)
Publicado em: Wednesday, April 23, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! There is a curiosity behind this post and this album, I will tell you. This is a contribution made in December 2006 by our great friend Caetano Rodrigues and at that time, I could not understand what was behind this album, except the concept of presenting new artists, which is quite clear through the title, Introducao. However, I did not understand the reason of the phrase “Teenager Series” in the lower right.

We received this week the visit of Juliana Mingotti, who said to be looking for this album for a couple of years. Juliana is the daughter of Wagner Mingotti, author of the first track and pianist of Wan Trio, participating also at the second track as bassist. Wan Trio is the best this album has to offer, recorded by Wagner Mingotti when he was sixteen and probably, all others are below eighteen.

In a quick search, I could realize that Silvinha was the participant that could develop a solid career and according with Juliana, Wagner Mingotti decided to terminate his artistic career after recording this album, which is again available for everyone to know the work of Wagner and all artists at this session. I am keeping the original text, with some modifications. Let’s see.

This is Introducao (1965), for Mocambo, a unique opportunity to listen for the fist time several artists that we never heard before, such as: Wan Trio – Bossa Jazz, Patricia – Singer, Impulso 4 – Bossa Jazz (this one everybody knows), Tony Carbonell – Instrumental, Quinteto Berimbossa – Bossa Jazz, Joao Paulo – Singer, Silvinha – Singer, Octons – Instrumental and Ezequiel – Singer. Most of these artists were probably not successful on their careers and this is what makes this LP a very interesting piece. Tracks include:

01 – Selvagem (Wagner Mingotti) – Wan Trio
02 – Onde Está Você (Oscar Castro Neves) – Patrícia
03 – Morte de Um Deus de Sal (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli) – Impulso 4
04 – Desarmonia (Tony Carbonell) – Tony Carbonell
05 – Blues Walk (C. Brown) – Quinteto Berimbossa
06 – História de Duas Crianças (Tony Carbonell / Hernesto Domingues) – João Paulo
07 – Maria Moita (Carlos Lyra) – Silvinha
08 – Tokio’s Blue (H. Silver) – Octons
09 – Paz e Amor (Ezequiel Silva / João Magalhães) – Ezequiel
10 – A Felicidade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes) – Quinteto Berimbossa

When I spoke about the benefits of fixing all Loronix links a couple of weeks ago, some friends said that I was crazy, needing psychiatric help. This is a great opportunity to explore the old and forgotten past of Loronix, seeking out amazing music from the past, boldly going where no other parrot has gone before. Sorry about reference. Anyway, I found this album today, which is a truly amazing Caetano Rodrigues contribution. It is time to bring it back to the first page. Let’s see.

This is Conjunto Bossa Nova – Bossa é Bossa (1959), for Odeon, in the 7-inch format, the first Roberto Menescal record featuring from the left to right in the picture, Luiz Paulo Nogueira. Helcio Milito, Bebeto, Luiz Carlos Vinhas, Bill Horn and Roberto Menescal. Thanks once again, Caetano, this is a really hard to find album and should make the day of new and old friends of Loronix. Tracks include:


Roberto Menescal
Bill Horn
Luiz Carlos Vinhas
Bebeto Castilho
Helcio Milito

Hello, good evening! Yesterday, we had a collaboration of cvllos that was supposed to be a never heard album by the legendary Casé, but it was only a reissue of a previous Caetano Rodrigues collaboration. You can check the story below at Brazilian Jazz Quartet – Jazz & Coffee (1958). Today, the tireless cvllos quickly recover all his prestige to our community, sending an anthological album, which is the first LP recorded by Maestro Radames Gnattali in 1954, entirely dedicated to the work of another important Brazilian musician, Ernesto Nazareth. Let’s see.

This is Radames Gnattali – Ernesto Nazareth (1954), for Continental, featuring Radames Gnattali piano and orchestra arranged by Radames Gnattali. I’m the past of Brazilian instrumental music to the forthcoming Enciclopédia Instrumental Brasileira website and the contribution of Radames Gnattali becomes very clear every day that passes. In Ernesto Nazareth tribute, the young maestro delivers piano playing and makes arrangements for the entire session. This album should be taken by its historical importance, I decided to keep the transfer as close as possible to the original album and some noise occurs. Thanks cvllos for this important contribution to Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – Expansiva (Ernesto Nazareth) Valsa
02 – Tenebroso (Ernesto Nazareth) Tango
03 – Ameno Resedá (Ernesto Nazareth) Polca-choro
04 – Odeon (Ernesto Nazareth) Tango
05 – Fon-fon (Ernesto Nazareth) Tango
06 – Apanhei-te Cavaquinho (Ernesto Nazareth) Polca-choro
07 – Confidências (Ernesto Nazareth) Valsa
08 – Batuque (Ernesto Nazareth) Tango

Paulinho Da Viola - A Dança da solidão


Paulinho da Viola is one of the artists that I learned to admire before I created Loronix. I cannot imagine how it would be my current relationship with Samba without Paulinho da Viola. He makes the perfect connection between Samba and any other Brazilian music style through the quality of his compositions, soulful interpretation, choice of repertoire and his perfect instrument playing, moving transparently between songs and instrumental themes. If someone wants to understand Samba, Paulinho da Viola is the starting point. Period.
This is Paulinho da Viola – A Danca da Solidao (1972), for Odeon, featuring Paulinho da Viola singing her own compositions and selected cuts by top-notch Samba composers, like Monarco, Nelson Sargento, Cartola, Wilson Baptista and others. Lindolfo Gaya is in charge of arrangements and Odeon did not credit musicians. Tracks include:

01 – Guardei Minha Viola (Paulinho da Viola)
02 – Meu Mundo É Hoje (Eu Sou Assim) (Wilson Batista / José Batista)
03 – Papelão (Geraldo das Neves)
04 – Duas Horas da Manhã (Nelson Cavaquinho / Ari Monteiro)

Casé & Brazilian Jazz Quartet - Coffe and Jazz (In Memorian)

Casé - In Memorian

Casé - In Memorian_3

Hello, good evening! I received this album from our good friend that came to my place to give it to our community. We should thanks cvllos, which was very lucky to find it in a really good condition. We were really excited about this one, Jose Ferreira Godinho Filho, better known as Casé, is one of our favorite musicians, who unfortunately left us so prematurely, recording only a few albums. I’m afraid cvllos will be disappointed as I was a couple of hours ago. In Memoriam is only a reissue of an album already available at Loronix, Brazilian Jazz Quartet – Coffee & Jazz (1958), kindly sent by Caetano Rodrigues one year ago as part of Loronix one year anniversary celebration.

The enthusiasm to present a new Casé release is now replaced only by the upgrade of Brazilian Jazz Quartet. However, if you have the previous release, this is a major upgrade, now including FLAC files. I am keeping the original text, added by specific information about In Memoriam, recorded in 1979 by GTA – Gravacoes Tupi Associadas, released one year before the passing of the great Casé.

Original May 2007 text:

Just came back from Kiko Continentino with Paulinho Guitarra and friends concert with this album on my mind and I could not resist to show Loronixers this truly awesome record sent by Caetano as part of Loronix 1st Year. The release date is uncertain, but I bet all my dollars this album was released in 1958. Meet the Brazilian Jazz Quartet, an obscure jazz quartet from the late 50’s that released two albums that will make you feel instantly crazy to know everything about them. Thanks Caetano, your small package for our on-line party will make people crazy and this is just the second album out of, well; let’s keep it secret until tomorrow.

This is Brazilian Jazz Quartet – Coffee & Jazz (1958), for Columbia, featuring Moacyr Peixoto (piano), Jose Ferreira Godinho Filho “Case” (sax), Rubens Alberto Barsotti “Rubinho” (drums) and Luiz Chaves Oliveira da Paz “Luiz Chaves” (bass). The back cover is also awesome with detailed biography information on each musician. Zimbo Trio fans will be amazed to read Luiz Chaves bio several years before Zimbo Trio. Self-explanatory Jazz for grown-ups made by Brazilian musicians in the late 50’s. I want to make a special request, let’s use comments to feedback this album, especially if you have already the chance to hear it and have additional information to share with us. Thanks once and once again Caetano for this fantastic music and Happy Birthday Loronix! Tracks include:


Moacyr Peixoto
Luiz Chaves

01 – The Lonesome Road
02 – When Your Lover Has Gone
03 – Cop-Out

Marília Medalha & Vinícius De Moraes - A Canção E a Voz De Marília Medalha Na Poesia De Vinícius Moraes

Hello, good evening! One of the benefits of all the hard work to rescue the missing links is to observe Loronix archives with a critical eye. I’m surprised with the things I find there. Anthological albums, which with the passage of time have been forgotten by me, will from now a new chance to appear on the first page. However, they will only have a chance if I can manage something new to add, such as improved cover scans or a new transfer to justify the upgrade and make it attractive for everybody. I hope the tapestry that I have been pushing up and updating is being useful to follow up the work in progress. Anyway, things are getting better all the time.

I want to show you one of those great archive surprises that I forgot along time, featuring an artist that has been in evidence this year with an amazing album made in partnership with a giant, Vinicius de Moraes. Let’s see.

This is Marilia Medalha – A Cancao e a Voz de Marilia Medalha na Poesia de Vinicius de Moraes (1972), for RGE, frequently taken by mistake as a Vinicius de Moraes career LP, while he only plays the role of producer and composer, delivering also vocals in English with Marilia Medalha on track 05 – Mr. Toquinho. The great surprise here is that you will not find Vinicius de Moraes standards, but unknown compositions written by Marilia Medalha in partnership with Vinicius, including also two instrumental tracks, 06 – Sagarana and 12 – Distante, by Marilia Medalha. I think you will have high quality entertainment with this really unusual LP featuring arrangements by Edu Lobo and Chiquinho de Moraes. Tracks include:

01 – Se o Amor Pudesse (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Moinho D’água (Marília Medalha / Joãozinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Canção Para o Grande Amor (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Meu Tempo (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – Mr Toquinho (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes) with Vinicius de Moraes
06 – Sagarana (Marília Medalha)
07 – Ausência (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – Algum Lugar (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – Sem Razão de Ser (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
10 – Quem Ri Melhor (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)
11 – Canção da Canção Que Nasceu (Marília Medalha / Vinicius de Moraes)

Jorge Ben - Salve Simpatia-Back

Hello, good evening! I would be completely satisfied just watching this cover artwork with this really nice guy shaking hands with a friend and being embraced by a beautiful girl. I would be also very pleased if I found inside just a single track, Ive Brussel, with the participation of Caetano Veloso, blockbuster at the end of the 70’s in Brazil and a really nice song. However, this is not what Salve Simpatia has to offer, in spite of my great lack of knowledge of the entire work of Jorge Ben, this album seems to be one of his greatest. It is also a great cover, it is impossible to take my eyes out of it and give the necessary attention to music. Finally, I learned to admire Jorge Ben through Loronix and I hope you also have the same fun I had this week when I discovered this album. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Salve Simpatia (1979), for Som Livre, featuring well-known Jorge Ben tracks such like the title track Salve Simpatia and Jorge Ben duet with Caetano Veloso on Ive Brussel. I never heard about a CD reissue of Salve Simpatia and it is amazing that is currently out of print. Tracks include:

Elizeth Cardoso & Moacyr Silva - A Meiga Elizete, No. 3

This album brings a blend of elements that guarantee flawless and solid listen. The first is Elizeth Cardoso singing Sambas in another record from the A Meiga Elizeth series, which totals five albums, having in common the direction and participation of the legendary Moacyr Silva, which is the second element of the combination. The third element is something to be confirmed, but I bet all my coins that Walter Wanderley takes part at this session, as well some others from the same A Meiga Elizeth series. Everything works really nice here, except this little inspired cover artwork, unlike other Elizeth Cardoso releases for Copacabana, the record company that released almost all LPs recorded by Elizeth Cardoso. Let’s see.

This is Elizeth Cardoso – A Meiga Elizeth Nr. 3 (1963), for Copacabana, featuring Moacyr Silva as producer and tenor sax in some tracks. AdHoc says that every Elizeth Cardoso album is worth checking, which is something that I agree a hundred percent. Give this one a try and don’t miss the restoration status update post, bringing daily updates on weeks already restored and improved with large deluxe cover scans. Tracks include:

Cris carries Brazil on her name and I cannot fail fulfilling a mother request. Cris-Brasil and Cris-Brasil’s mother, this is Nora Ney, especially anticipated from the restoration work. I’m keeping my original text below. Stay tuned there is more to come today, I’m still deciding…

I’m surprised that Nora Ney never had an album released at Loronix. Nora Ney is a very important Brazilian singer, active since 1950, being one of the great Divas from the golden age of Radio. Nora Ney was also member of Sinatra Farney Fan Club, having influenced several artists. This album has a big title, which is an anthological sentence take from a Nelson Cavaquinho tune, A Flor e O Espinho. Let’s see.

This is Nora Ney – Tire o Seu Sorriso do Caminho que Eu Quero Passar com a Minha Dor (1972), for Som Livre, featuring Nora Ney renditions of her early repertoire based on songs by Nelson Cavaquinho, Luiz Bonfa, Fernando Lobo, Antonio Maria, among many others. Some reviewers consider these cuts the definitive versions of acclaimed compositions, such like Ninguem me Ama, De Cigarro em Cigarro, Franqueza, among others. Maestro Guio de Moraes is in charge of arrangements while musicians in the set are not credited. Tracks include:

01 – Desabafo (Beto Quartin / Sergio Bittencourt)
02 – Quando Eu Me Chamar Saudade (Nelson Cavaquinho / Guilherme de Brito)
03 – Bar da Noite (Bidú Reis / Haroldo Barbosa)
04 – Vamos Falar de Saudade (Chocolate / Mário Lago)
05 – Preconceito (Antônio Maria / Fernando Lobo)
06 – Franqueza (Denis Brean / Osvaldo Guilherme)
07 – Ninguém Me Ama (Fernando Lobo / Antônio Maria)
08 – A Flor e o Espinho (Nelson Cavaquinho / Alcides Caminha / Guilherme de Brito)
09 – Obra Prima (Lúcio Cardim / Norberto Pereira)
10 – É Tão Gostoso Seu Moço (Chocolate / Mário Lago)
11 – Quanto Tempo Faz (Paulo Soledade / Fernando Lobo)
12 – Onde Anda Você (Antônio Maria / Reinaldo Dias Leme)
13 – Conselho (Denis Brean / Osvaldo Guilherme)
14 – De Cigarro Em Cigarro (Luis Bonfá)

Copinha - Amando Sempre

Hello, good evening! Here we go on our daily post, today featuring a very special album of a really important musician and one of my favorites, Nicolino Copia, which we know as Copinha. Copinha is a really privileged musician, with an active career on decades of contributions to Brazilian music, starting in the 20’s until the 80’s. Let’s see.

This is Copinha – Sempre Amando (1981), for Columbia, the last Copinha career album with the participation and arrangements of Radames Gnattali and arrangements by Radames Gnattali and Copinha. This the only Copinha career album I have available, but his music is present in almost every page of Loronix, through contributions to renowned artists records, such like Elizeth Cardoso, Joao Gilberto, Paulinho da Viola, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and many others. Copinha is the master on short and perfect flute introductions, being his best one the flute solo at Chega de Saudade, at the anthological self titled album recorded in 1958 with the same name.antológico of the same name written by Joao Gilberto. Personnel listing was not provided and any hint on musicians is really appreciated. Tracks include:

01 – Remexendo (Radamés Gnattali)
02 – Amando Sempre (Copinha)
03 – Izaura (Candinho)
04 – Margarida (Copinha)
05 – Ele e Eu (Pixinguinha / Benedito Lacerda)

Márcia - Eu E a Brisa-Back

Hello, good evening! I thought life would be much easier making a single post daily to leave the rest of the time to the activities for the reconstruction activities. However, in practical terms, this daily pick has been very difficult (and of course, very funny). This is all about balance and taking a look on previous releases I think it is time to make a Bossa Nova album performed by a female singer, breaking the sequence of instrumental albums of the last few days. I hope we all enjoy this one. Let’s see.

This is Marcia – Eu e a Brisa (1968), for Philips, which is the debut LP of this really important and unfortunately underated artist. Marcia performed with great artists like Vinicius de Moraes, Paulo Cesar Pinheiro and her long time partner Baden Powell. This album has also important for being the first recording of Johnny Alf’s Eu e a Brisa, previously performed by Marcia at III Festival da Musica Popular Brasileira (1968). The back cover brings liner notes written by Flávio Cavalcanti, who decided not to mention anything about the musicians, just making comments about Marcia. Tracks include:

01 – Eu e a Brisa (Johnny Alf)
02 – Pra Machucar Meu Coração (Ary Barroso)
03 – Canção Que Morre no Ar (Carlos Lyra / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
04 – Se a Gente Morresse de Amor (Lindolfo Gaya / Helder Camara)
05 – É Preciso Dizer Adeus (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – Passa Por Mim (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
07 – A Volta (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
08 – Samba da Pergunta (Pingarilho / Marcos Vasconcellos)
09 – Dorme Profundo (Pingarilho / Marcos Valle)
10 – Aula de Matemática (Tom Jobim / Marino Pinto)
11 – De Você Eu Gosto (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
12 – Eu Também Preciso de Você (Silvinha Telles)

Sebastiao Tapajos is a gifted musician. He has a classical background and started with his instrument at the age of nine, encouraged by his own father, being also his first teacher. His classical training and interest in popular music defined his style by a blend of the two schools, providing a transparent connection between the classical and popular. Sebastiao Tapajos has close to 50 albums recorded, in Brazil and outside. However, most of his discography is still unknown to me, his albums are hard to find, especially those recorded on vinyl and who never had a chance of a reprint on CD. Violao & Amigos is a great find. Let’s see.

This is Sebastiao Tapajos – Violao & Amigos (1979), for RCA Victor, with the participation of Hermeto Pascoal, Paulo Moura and Mauricio Einhorn. I found this one a week ago, being sold for a ridiculous price. Since then, he has been constantly spinned. I was not able to accomplish an acceptable back cover restoration; being offered in the state it was found. I think this is a rather unknown record and I’m confident that our community will receive it with enthusiasm. Tracks include:

Publicado em: Sunday, April 13, 2008 by zecalouro



Hello, good evening! I’m really satisfied with the quality of the music we had at Loronix across the last days. The idea is to slow down a little bit the release of new music and keep a strong pace on links reactivation. I think this new approach is really good, as the feedback received has been positive with no exceptions. Anyway, today is Saturday and we need some relaxation, after all, Saturday is the day of Samba at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Paulo Freire – Orgao + Batucada = Samba (1978), for Copacabana, featuring the Brazilian organist Paulo Freire, probably unknown to many friends. Paulo Freire delivers infectious Samba grooves on top of a Samba repertoire full of very popular songs. I must admit this album is my first experience with Paulo Freire, which is some kind of late Andre Penazzi, very active on recordings throughout the 70’s. This album works according to what is proposed to be and I believe it is a great treat for those who like organ playing with Samba rhythm. Tracks include:

01 – Ilha de Maré (Walmir Lima / Lupa)
02 – Osso Duro de Roer (Benito di Paula) Assobiar Ou Chupar Cana (Benito di Paula)
03 – Mulher à Brasileira (Luis Ayrão)
04 – O Que Será (Flor da Terra) (Chico Buarque) Meu Caro Amigo (Chico Buarque / Francis Hime)
05 – O Que Você Tem Garota (Jorginho do Império / Dico da Cuíca)
06 – Vou Levando Meu Canto (Nerino Silva / Marinaldo)
07 – Vai Ou Não Vai (Martinho da Vila)
08 – Quando Será (Zé Rodrix / Livi)
09 – Propagas (Jorge Lucas)
10 – Olho Por Olho (Daniel Santos / Zé do Maranhão) Oi Compadre (Martinho da Vila)

Pixinguinha - Pixinguinha 70

PixinguinhaStatueHello, good evening! I received an email that made me feel really glad, sent by a friend with several suggestions to Loronix. He said that Brazilian music is very well represented throughout Loronix, but with an unexplained gap, the little emphasis given to one of the greatest Brazilian musician of all time, Alfredo da Rocha Vianna, better known as Pixinguinha.

I fully agree, but unfortunately I do not have any career album recorded by the master. By the way, Pixinguinha recorded few LPs. His discography is more concentrated in 78RPMs and several participations on other artists’ records. Better late than never, here we have Pixinguinha music, recorded live to celebrate the seventy anniversary of the great master. Let’s see.

This is Pixinguinha 70 (1968), for MIS, recorded live at Teatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro. This album features Jacob do Bandolim, Radames Gnattali, Conjunto Epoca de Ouro, Os Boemios and Orquestra do Teatro Municipal and although released in CD a couple of years ago, is really obscure. There are nice performances by Jacob do Bandolim and Radames Gnattali and it was really hard to decide which one to list at Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:

The Performers

Jacob do Bandolim
Radames Gnattali

Conjunto Epoca de Ouro

Milton Banana - Milton Banana Trio 1971

The idea of doing only one post per day is disturbing. The great challenge is picking something solid enough to please everybody. The decision to post this album was taken yesterday, but he followed me on thinking all day long. What more can I say to everything already been said here about Milton Banana? It is difficult to answer, Milton Banana is one of the most popular artists at Loronix and I believe the mere presence of an album never released before at Loronix is self-explanatory. Let’s see.

This is Milton Banana Trio – Milton Banana Trio (1971), for Odeon, also known as Milton Banana Trio – Amigo e Pra Essas Coisas, probably by track 09 – Amigo e Pra Essas Coisas (Silvio da Silva / Aldir Blanc). This LP was found on excellent conditions and the transfer was done with diamond cutter, I hope you appreciate my effort. I have been also wondering how many groups lead by a drummer we had? I could not remember a single one, except Milton Banana Trio. Anyway, I don’t want to bore you with my parrot talking, stay with Milton Banana Trio and have a nice Thursday. Tracks include:

01 – Madalena (Ivan Lins / Ronaldo Monteiro de Souza)
02 – Eu Também Quero Mocotó (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
03 – Amazonas (Keep Talking) (João Donato)
04 – Junto a Você (Carlos Nóbrega)
05 – Quero Voltar Pra Bahia (Paulo Diniz / Odibar)
06 – Jesus Cristo (Roberto Carlos / Erasmo Carlos)
07 – Na Tonga da Mironga do Kabuletê (Vinicius de Moraes / Toquinho)
08 – Piri Piri (Paulo Diniz / Odibar)
09 – Amigo É Pra Essas Coisas (Silvio da Silva / Aldir Blanc)
10 – Ôba Lá Vem Ela (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
11 – Menina (Paulinho Nogueira)
12 – Procurando Tu (J. Luna / Antônio Barros)

Baden Powell - Estudos

Hello, good evening! Until the end of the old posts recovery task I will be making only a single post daily. I believed this new approach would allow more time to recovery activities, but a single post needs to be planned and chosen with dedication. I am sure that Baden Powell and Estudos, one of its most praised albums is a flawless and high quality release. Let’s see.

This is Baden Powell – Estudos (1971), for Elenco, featuring Baden Powell guitar with accompaniment of Alfredo Bessa percussion. Estudos is a really wonderful album; it is dense, soulful, providing new experiences no matter how many times you take it for a spin. Once again, I’m gathering Brazil-on-guitar Estudos review, one of the greatest musician tribute websites available at the internet, no matter what kind of music. Tracks include:

BrazilOnGuitar says: One of Baden Powell’s most popular records does not reveal its recording date. Even extensive research could not answer our questions. Estudos is one of his most experimental studio recordings and very well known. BP recorded only together with the percussionist Alfredo Bessa. Partly he over-dubbed guitar, bass and percussion, now and then he uses sound effects. Some compositions already show harmonies of Apaixonado. Hardly any other record contains so many solo pieces that became guitarist’s standard repertoire quickly. It remains unknown if the material was originally intended for the planned solo record to be done in December 1971.

Digitalisation of the vinyl record: the first German CD-release from 1990 (821 855-2) is in AAD and comes closest to the original sound of the LP, even if partly the sound is too low. The German CD sounds like an unplayed vinyl record without noise. The re-release from 2003 removed the sound differences and has a carefully revised sound. The result is good, but we personally prefer the version from 1990. We thank Robert G. (Germany) for his translation and Susumu san for his cover.

PS.: I’m making available the first Elenco vinyl issue. I hope you approve my transfer!


Baden Powell
Alfredo Bessa

Track List

01 – Encosta Para Vê Se Dá (Baden Powell)
02 – Pra Valer (Baden Powell / Paulo César Pinheiro)

Jorge Ben - Tropical

Hello, good evening! One of the most difficult tasks (and more risky) at Loronix is talking about an artist that everybody knows and love, especially when I need to show an album with so little information available. This one is a perfect example, Tropical never had a CD reissue in Brazil, and until last week, was completely unknown to me. Jorge Ben fans go to the last consequences when hunting albums. I received several requests of impossible to find records, but no one ever asked or talked about this one, which is a Jorge Ben LP, always worth a lot to give a try. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Tropical (1977), for Philips, recorded in 1976 in UK for Island Records. Perhaps the only Jorge Ben album recorded outside Brazil, featuring new versions of Jorge Ben older songs, done with Brazilian and international musicians. The repertoire brings nine tunes, but with a lot to hear on 45 minutes running time. I hope Tropical amazes most of you, bringing a solid listen to start another week. Tracks include:


Jorge Ben
(voice, guitar)
Gustavo Schroeter
(drums, percussion)
Eduardo Magalhaes de Carvalho
Joao Batista Pereira
Joao Roberto Vandaluz
(piano, organ)

Track List

01 – Taj Mahal (Jorge Ben)

Hello, good evening! I want to show today a requested artist, very important, but unfortunately somewhat forgotten. Not a musician this time, but a gifted composer, with songs recorded by almost all major Brazilian music artists, which recorded only three albums, and sadly left this world too soon, at 35 years of age. Sidney Miller. Let’s see.

This is Sidney Miller (1983), for Funarte, a tribute, with the participation of Alaide Costa, Zeze Gonzaga, Ze Luiz Mazziotti and Sidney Miller performing two tracks, including A Viola e O Violeiro with Nara Leao. This is a very nice record with ten Sidney Miller compositions that you cannot miss. Zeze Gonzaga and Ze Luiz Mazziotti deliver very good interpretation of well-known Sidney Miller tunes. Tracks include:

01 – Maria Joana – Alô Ô Fevereiro (Sidney Miller) with Zezé Gonzaga / Zé Luis Mazziotti
02 – Nós os Foliões (Sidney Miller) with Zé Luis Mazziotti
03 – Alma Minha (Sidney Miller) with Zezé Gonzaga

Hello, good evening! Do not let this cover cheats you. Despite what you are looking, this is not a “Para Dancar” album, and it is not a conventional orchestra LP led by a maestro performing popular songs of its time. This is a great disc recorded by an artist who has always been in priorities for Loronix and also on the short list of every serious Brazilian music collector. This will be the only record released tonight, and I’m sure it worth many other albums together. Let’s see.

This is Carlos Piper e Sua Orquestra – E Otimo Dancar e Ouvir Carlos Piper e Sua Orquestra (1966), for Continental, featuring Carlos Piper Samba Jazz arrangements for Brazilian and American standards performed by a big band of top-notch musicians. It is amazing that a great musician such like Carlos Piper is completely unknown to the general public. My searches also failed to retrieve Carlos Piper information with Google. Some musicians in this session are also completely unknown. If anyone has additional information on Carlos Piper, feel free to share with us. Tracks include:


Lambari, Carlos Alberto, Waltinho, Palito
Biu, Ditinho, Arlindo, Iran
Botinao, Gentil, Broegas, Fluger, Oswaldo, Buda, Carlos Piper
Heraldo do Monte (amazing!)
Hermes, Sezinho, Nascimento

nelson cavaquinho as flores em vida

I could have saved this album until Saturday, which is the day where Samba has the spotlights at Loronix. However, I could not resist. Even considered an extraordinary composer and Samba interpreter, Nelson Cavaquinho recorded only a few albums and this one was completely unknown for me. Nelson Cavaquinho has many admirers at Loronix and they should be quite enthusiastic about this disc. Let’s see.

This is Nelson Cavaquinho – As Flores em Vida (1985), for Eldorado, a moving tribute and the last album recorded by Nelson Cavaquinho, with the participation of a constellation of Brazilian artists, including Paulinho da Viola, Cristina, Chico Buarque, Joao Bosco, Toquinho, among others. Nelson Cavaquinho performs in all tracks with the accompaniment of different guests. My highlight goes to the opening track Devia ser Condenada by Cartola and Nelson Cavaquinho, which is my selection to Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:

01 – Devia Ser Condenada (Nelson Cavaquinho / Cartola) with Nelson Cavaquinho
02 – Dona Carola (Nelson Cavaquinho / Nourival Bahia / Walto Feitosa) with Chico Buarque / Nelson Cavaquinho
03 – Não Te Dói a Consciência (Nelson Cavaquinho / Ari Monteiro / Augusto Garcez) with Paulinho da Viola / Nelson Cavaquinho Quem Chora Sempre Tem Razão (Nelson Cavaquinho / Guilherme de Brito) with Nelson Cavaquinho

Copacabana M-908

Hello, good evening! I made consistent progress on creating the strategy of old post’s reconstruction. That was the reason of my absence yesterday. It is important to set up procedures to make the work easy and organized, with little errors, so that everyone can participate. I am doing what I can to document the procedures to engage the community, but I believe that one more day of refinement would be required. I will keep you posted.

The show must go on and this post is all about entertainment blending Brazilian music and soccer (futebol), very close associated. Let’s see.

This is Temas das Copas do Mundo 1958 e 1970 (1970), for Copacabana, a single, featuring the themes of 1958 and 1970 World Cup, won by Brazil in Sweden and Mexico respectively. I believe that all the friends of Brazil know how to sing these songs by heart, especially the second, released in commemoration of the third Brazilian championship. I’m making available a documentary of the 1970 World Cup final match with Brazil and Italy, a must for those who love soccer, featuring Pelé, Jairzinho, Tostão, Rivelino and other renowned soccer players. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! I spent a time today looking on Loronix archives planning next month, fully dedicated on bring them back. We have a really huge collection with several nice albums, some of them bring nice memories from the days they were posted for the first time and this is an album that I never consider a candidate for an upgrade. It is probably one of the first conversions I made at Loronix and I got very pleased to show it in December 2006. Let’s see.

This is Alaide Costa & Oscar Castro Neves – Alaide Costa & Oscar Castro Neves (1973), for Odeon, which is not an Alaide Costa career LP with the participation of Oscar Castro Neves, they share the role of main performers here, and the results are outstanding. Oscar Castro Neves delivers above of the average arrangements and Alaide Costa seems to be totally involved in the session, probably, the best album she ever recorded, even better than her 1965 release with the participation of Jongo Trio. If you are new to this record, consider taking it and if you already know the first issue, take it, everything was upgraded. Tracks include:

01 – Obrigada Meu Bem (Aloysio de Oliveira / Silvinha Telles)
02 – Sabe Você (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Só Não Vem Você (Carlos Lyra / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
04 – Caminhos (Luis Jorge / Regina Werneck)
05 – Noturno (Em Tempo de Samba) (Custódio Mesquita / Evaldo Ruy)
06 – Companheira da Manhã (Oscar Castro Neves / Regina Werneck)
07 – Cala Meu Amor (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – Outono (Billy Blanco)
09 – Murmúrios (João Pinto / Regina Célia)
10 – Retrato Em Branco e Preto (Tom Jobim / Chico Buarque)
11 – Amigo Amado (Alaíde Costa / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – A Dama de Vermelho (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / Pedro Caetano)

Lucio Alves – Lucio Alves (1975)

Publicado em: Monday, March 31, 2008 by zecalouro


I think people of my generation in Brazil already know Lucio Alves or at least heard about him. I have to admit that before starting Loronix I knew only the basis, I didn’t know, for instance, that Joao Gilberto always took his albums to hear with Lucio Alves, as a disciple getting the approval of his master. I became obsessed by Lucio Alves on LPs, compactos, 78 RPMs, no matter how. I believe Loronix provides moments of discovery and a real opportunity to understand a lot of Brazilian. Every day I learn a new thing with Loronix and Loronix does not belong to me, Loronix belongs to everybody. Rest assured that Loronix belongs to us, to our community as a whole. This is the last Lucio Alves career LP, the first over ten years, an inexplicable interval. Let’s see.

This is Lucio Alves – Lucio Alves (1975), for RCA Victor, featuring tunes with women names, probably one of those Aloysio de Oliveira ideals, in charge of musical and studio direction. Actually, this album title is Lucio Alves e (the track list), vestidas por Chico de Moraes, in charge of the arrangements, but the title won’t fit here. I hope all of you have a really nice week that starts this Monday and thanks for being part of this community. Tracks include:

01 – Mulher (Custódio Mesquita / Sady Cabral) Ana Luisa (Tom Jobim)
02 – Juraci (Antônio Almeida / Ciro de Souza)
03 – Florisbela (Antônio Nássara / Eratóstenes Frazão)
04 – Maria (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
05 – Rosa (Pixinguinha)
06 – Izabela (Primeira Namorada) (Billy Blanco)
07 – Januária (Chico Buarque)
08 – Risoleta (Raul Marques / Moacir Bernardino)
09 – Ligia (Tom Jobim)
10 – Dolores (Alberto Ribeiro / Marino Pinto / Arlindo Marques Júnior)
11 – Helena Helena Helena (Alberto Land)
12 – Um Nome de Mulher (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes) Final Mulher (Custódio Mesquita / Sady Cabral)

Important Communication to All Loronix’s Friends

zecatypesHello, good evening! This is a very important communication to all of Loronix´s friends;

Last Thursday, all Loronix links were eliminated. It is not unusual for one or two links being occasionally removed because someone feels his / her rights have been infringed. We accept and respect that.

But the extent of the latest action makes me think of a purposeful attack, a denial of service. Based on previous experiences — fortunately, none of such depth and consequences — Loronix has always emerged strengthened and improved, with the support of our community.

The links will be gradually replaced, beginning from the newest ones, and proceeding until the oldest of them is back in order.

The replacement effort has just begun and everybody is invited to engage. Procedures are necessary to keep work organized; new features will be soon announced, along with instructions to allow anyone who feels like collaborating to participate in our effort.

My apologies for this inconvenience; you all can rest assure that lessons will be learned and we will make Loronix an even better community.

Show Discomunal

I was surprised today when I came back to this album and found no comments on it. I thought a list of more than 10 comments was available. Anyway, first thing is a required Millor Fernandes introduction for friends outside of Brazil; Millor Fernandes is a Brazilian cartoonist, humorist, writer and a key figure on Brazilian music. Being active as journalist since the late 30’s, Millor founded with Ziraldo, Jaguar and others, the legendary satirical newspaper O Pasquim, in the middle of the toughest Brazilian dictatorship years. Millor Fernandes hosts this concert, recorded live in 1968 at Teatro Toneleros. Let’s see.

This is Discomunal (1968), for MIS, an anthological concert with the participation of Antonio Carlos Jobim as a temporary member of the short living vocal group Quarteto 004, Baden Powell, Marcia, Paulo Moura Hepteto, Chico Buarque, Franklin and Eumir Deodato, in charge of arrangements and music direction. Tracks include:
