Hello, good evening! I’m happy I don’t need to buy a Mac. I’m old for such change. I would like to inform that my computer nightmare has gone to a term today. Thanks a lot to everybody who wrote me with suggestions, tips and tricks. It seems that everybody is a computer specialist today. Thanks a lot Matt from the essential Beta Particle for making available resources to a virtual conference call, not needed because Jason guided this computer illiterate parrot to a utility that fixed the problem as magic.

Anyway, now I can focus on something I’m doing that has a strong influence to this post. I’m trying to write an article to approach on a structured manner a fascinating aspect of Brazilian instrumental music in the 60’s, which is the use of nicknames by renowned artists on records, such like Ed Lincoln recording as Don Pablo de Havana, the last released provided by Jose Ignacio Neto. It is incredible the number of musicians who made such thing. I think the most popular and relevant case is Bob Fleming, a fictional musician created by Nilo Sergio’s Musidisc label that had two artists playing the Bob Fleming role, the legendary Moacyr Silva and Zito Righi. Let’s see.

This is Bob Fleming – Bob Fleming Interpreta Boleros Volume 3 (1965), for Masterpiece Masters, a Musidisc label. I never found official information on which musician is behind each Bob Fleming release, but this one seems to be a Moacyr Silva session, delivering renditions of Bolero standards with his sax tenor. This cover is scaring at a first sight, but soon you will get used with the naked ladies around the sax. Tracks include:

01 – Charade (H. Mancini) Just For Tonight (J. Mercer / H. Carmichael)
02 – Sin Motivo (Gabriel Ruiz) Ay de Mi (O. Farrés)
03 – Amor (Gabriel Ruiz / R. L. Mendes) Abrazame Asi (M. Clavel)
04 – Accarezzame (Calvi / Nisa) Arrivederci (U. Bindi / G. Calabrese)
05 – Star Dust (H. Carmichael / M. Parish) Fly Me To The Moon (B. Howard)
06 – Sta Sera Pago Io (Modugno) Amapola (J. M. Lacalle)
07 – Desesperadamente (G. Luis / R. L. Mendes) Angustia (Orlando Brito)
08 – Rose (Michael / H. Salvador) Trop Beau (L. Amade / Gilbert Bécaud)
09 – Acercate Más (O. Farrés) Quizas Quizas Quizas (O. Farrés)
10 – Cuando Calienta El Sol (Carlos Rigual / Mário Rigual) Besame Mucho (Consuelo Velasquez)
11 – Uno Pertutti (T. Remis / A. Testa / Mogol) Io Che Amo Solo Te (Sergio Endrigo)
12 – Nessuno Al Mondo (R. Gioia) Al Di Lá (Mogol / Donida)


Na realidade, este parece ser mais um disco interpretado por Zito Righi, e não Moacyr Silva (está incluído na discografia do Zito Righi, abaixo).


Quanto ao artigo que estava sendo escrito pelo Zeca, ele de fato escreveu, com o título “O Jogo dos Pseudônimos”. Pode ser acessado no Músicos do Brasil.

Finalmente, o disco pode ser buscado no Martoni.

Rita Lee & Gilberto Gil - Refestança

Hello, good evening! I’m having a bad time with my notebook. I use Microsoft Windows and since yesterday, I cannot reach the explorer file manager interface, the taskbar, which is that useful lower bar used to switch between opened applications and the start menu. Sorry for using this space for this kind of moaning, but I think I’m losing this battle this time. Perhaps a computer virus has got me. I don’t know. A simple task like opening a word processor is a great effort. Anyway, if someone has the solution for this problem, please get in touch.

Sometimes your state of mind influences the music made available at Loronix, and this post is exactly the case. It has a lot of energy and an anthological performance by two very important artists, one of them being released for the first time at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Gilberto Gil & Rita Lee – Refestanca (1977), for Som Livre, featuring Gilberto Gil, an artist that does not need explanation and Rita Lee, the well known Os Mutantes vocalist. Refestanca is a very well recorded live concert, probably Gilberto Gil’s concert with Rita Lee as the invited artist. Gilberto Gil brings his whole band, Refestanca, also the album title and the opening and closing track. Rita Lee also brings her band at that time, Tutti Fruti, which is all about Rock and Roll. The outcome is very nice, they mix their bands, making everything sounds confusion at the first hearing, but as soon as you get used, it is hard to ignore cuts like Ovelha Negra, Back in Bahia, Odara and Domingo no Parque, my selection to Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:


Gilberto Gil
(vocal, violao)
Rita Lee

Djalma Correa, Naila Skorpio
Cidinho Teixeira, Roberto de Carvalho
Carlos Alberto Charlegre, Sergio Della Monica
Lee Marcucci, Moacyr Albuquerque
Lucia Turnbull, Willi
Luiz Sergio Carlini, Perinho Santana, Roberto de Carvalho

Track List

01 – Refestança (Rita Lee / Gilberto Gil) with Gilberto Gil & Rita Lee
02 – É Proibido Fumar (Roberto Carlos / Erasmo Carlos) with Gilberto Gil & Rita Lee
03 – Odara (Caetano Veloso) with Gilberto Gil
04 – Domingo no Parque (Gilberto Gil) with Gilberto Gil
05 – Back In Bahia (Gilberto Gil) with Rita Lee
06 – Giló (Rita Lee) with Rita Lee
07 – Ovelha Negra (Rita Lee) with Gilberto Gil
08 – Eu Só Quero Um Xodó (Dominguinhos / Anastácia) with Gilberto Gil
09 – De Leve (Get Back) (John Lennon / Paul McCartney) with Rita Lee & Gilberto Gil
10 – Arrombou a Festa (Rita Lee / Paulo Coelho) with Rita Lee
11 – Refestança (Rita Lee / Gilberto Gil) with Rita Lee & Gilberto Gil

Antonio Adolfo, Nó Em Pingo D'água & João Pernambuco

Hello, good evening! This is a very important post that brings to Loronix a musician that I never had the chance to speak about. It is also important to say we are only getting in touch with this musician with the help of Jorge Mello that kindly made available this album to Loronix, directly from his amazing collection. I have been wondering today how many friends from Loronix community had the chance to know the works of Joao Pernambuco, considered by many one of the fathers, if not the father of the Brazilian violao.

Joao Pernambuco was born in 1883 and his work as an instrumentalist is only available by 78 RPMs recorded in the 1920’s decade. But his legacy and his contribution to Brazilian music remain n strong influence throughout a century, shaping the works of musicians such like Jacob do Bandolim, Meira, Baden Powell, Mauricio Carrilho, Raphael Rabello, among many others.


This photo taken in 1913 at the city of Petropolis, Rio de Janeiro featuring Donga, a non identified musician, Joao Pernambuco and Pixinguinha comes from an awesome website that I had the chance to know today with the help of Jorge Mello and this fantastic contribution. I would like to invite you to spend a time at, a tribute to Joao Pernambuco, owned and maintained by the Italian musician Angelo Zaniol, a work of passion for Joao Pernambuco and the music from Brazil. There you will find Joao Pernambuco pictures, discography and Angelo Zaniol arrangements for Joao Pernambuco music, among many other things. Thanks Jorge Mello and thanks also Angelo Zaniol for your beautiful tribute.

This is Antonio Adolfo & Grupo No em Pingo D’Agua – Joao Pernambuco | 100 Anos (1983), for Funarte, a tribute to Joao Pernambuco Centennial, a very nice session with the piano of Antonio Adolfo and the Choro Group No em Pingo D’Agua, featuring twelve selected tracks taken from Joao Pernambuco compositions. This album is self explanatory and you have a lot of things to discover today with Angelo Zaniol website and Joao Pernambuco music. Have a nice weekend. Tracks include:


Antonio Adolfo

Grupo No em Pingo D’Agua

Mário Seve
Pedro Amorim
Rogerio Souza
Jorge Simas
(violão 7 Cordas)
Wanderson Martins
Marcio Gomes

Track List

Bossa 4 repeteco front

Hello, good evening! I’m back, and it is always very nice to be back to Loronix. Thanks for being here! I spoke about a given Musidisc release to stay on top of the excellent JIN contribution. However, a technical problem with the music and image transfer occurs and we will need to wait an additional day for it. Meanwhile, I want to share an album that certainly would not be a strong candidate to Loronix under normal conditions. It was released by Equipe, another legendary Brazilian record company in the 60’s, featuring a group that I never heard about, which is Bossa 4, a blend of instrumental and vocal group, featuring guitar, bass, drums, percussion and a very nice organist. Let’s see.

This is Bossa 4 – Repeteco Outra Vez (1968), for Equipe. Little I know about this album and this group, but I’m confident that additional information should come very soon from several and serious Equipe’s collectors around Loronix, especially Bossanov, our rarities advisor from Russia. Tracks include:

01 – O Caderninho (Olmir Stocker “Alemão”)
02 – Te Amo (Roberto Corrêa / Sylvio Son)
03 – Eu Estou Feliz (Puppet On a String) (B. Martin / P. Coucter)
04 – Lonely (Sebastian)
05 – You Only Live Twice (Barry / Bricusse)
06 – Telegrama (Western Union) (M. Rabon / N. Ezeil)
07 – Eu Te Amo Mesmo Assim (Martinha)
08 – Tributo a Martin Luther King (Wilson Simonal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
09 – Meu Grito (Roberto Carlos)
10 – Não Posso Controlar Meu Pensamento (Cláudio Fontana / Robert Livi)
11 – O Importante É a Rosa (Gilbert Bécaud / L. Amade)
12 – Prova de Fogo (Erasmo Carlos)
13 – Só Eu e Você (There’s a Kind Of Hush) (L. Reed / G. Stephens)
14 – Coisinha Estúpida (Something Stupid) (C. Carson / Parks / Vrs. Leno)

Ed Lincoln – Don Pablo de Havana (1960)

Link original: Ed Lincoln – Don Pablo de Havana (1960)
Publicado em: Thursday, October 09, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I’m away from home this week, but I’m decided to make two albums today, both by the legendary label Musidisc. I’m not sure I have everything set for the second. If you see this one as the first post across this Thursday, don’t worry, there will be another chance when I get back home.

Actually, this album is perfect to be at the front page for a whole week, another solid release sponsored by the owner and maintainer of AVOLTA, Jose Ignacio Neto, JIN, from the third generation of the Ignacio family, a family devoted to Brazilian music. Let’s see.

This is Don Pablo de Havana e Sua Orquestra (1960), for Musidisc. Little I know about this album, except the review provided by Jose Ignacio Neto confirming that Don Pablo de Havana is Ed Lincoln using a different name. By the way, JIN seems to have very nice connections with Brazilian music. JIN mentions another album recorded by Ed Lincoln as Don Pablo de Havana, Disco Latin. I’m 98% sure that I have this album, but I need to get back home to confirm. I hope I can get back to the final post today, meanwhile stay with Jose Ignacio Neto review on this pleasant album. Tracks include:

Ed Lincoln Goes Latin! by Jose Ignacio Neto

“Many recording artists have recorded using different names due to contractual reasons. Bob Fleming and Moacyr Silva who feature a lot on Loronix are of course the same person, but the great Ed Lincoln took it one step beyond. He told me that he loved to record under different names – a new name for each style or even for each record. He recorded as Les 4 Cadillacs, De Savoya Combo (his real name is Eduardo Lincoln De Saboia) and in the 70s and 80s countless American sounding names.

Here for this cha cha adventure he becomes Don Pablo de Havana! We can only guess at the original line up but it would probably have included Ed on piano (and bass?) and Rubens Bassini can surely be heard on bongos? Possibly, Juarez on sax and flutes.

Ed made a number of these records for Musidisc including one called Disco Latin!

The versions of Ary Barroso’s Na Baixa de Sapateiro and Aquerela do Brasil are really beautiful.

This album appears to be a reissue of part of another Musidisc LP with a cover showing a galo (cockerel) but that LP has different track listing. This was normal for Musidisc to reuse their recordings and repackage them.” JIN

Track List

01 – Alguém Me Disse (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia)
02 – El Choclo (A. Villoldo / M. Catan)
03 – Andalucia (The Breeze And I) (Ernesto Lecuona)
04 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)
05 – Together Wherever We Go (J. Styne / S. Sondheim)
06 – Adios (Enric Madriguera)
07 – Mustapha (B. Azzam / Barclay)
08 – Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
09 – La Cumparsita (M. Rodriguez / P. Contursi / E. Maroni)
10 – Climb Ev’ry Mountin (R. Rodgers / O. Hammerstein II)
11 – Quero Beijar-te as Mãos (Arcênio de Carvalho / Lourival Faissal)
12 – Delicado (Waldir Azevedo)

Rildo Hora – A Vez e a Hora de Rildo Hora (1971)

Link original: Rildo Hora – A Vez e a Hora de Rildo Hora (1971)
Publicado em: Tuesday, October 07, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! Many things I learned and still learning with Loronix and the community created around our website. Among them, the generation of demand around an artist or an album is particularly interesting. These demands always return above the average albums which I would not have the opportunity to know by my own resources.

This album is a perfect example that left me in a very delicate situation about 30 minutes ago when I was googling information about it. I found it available in one of the most consistent Brazilian music blogs, Quimsy’s Mumbo Jumbo, a permanent oasis created and maintained by Quimsy. I decided to transfer my plans to a new album at Loronix for tomorrow, but looking at Quimsy’s discography, I decided to make it and urge Loronix community to reach Quimsy by following this link or just clicking at the small fraction of six solid albums that you will not find at Loronix. I’m sure you will have a wonderful time at Quimsy’s, just like I had today. Let’s see.

This is Rildo Hora – A Vez e a Hora de Rildo Hora (1971), for RCA, featuring arrangements by Maestro Guerra Peixe, Chico de Moraes and Rildo Hora, which also delivers violao and harmonica playing. Maestro Severino Filho (Os Cariocas) is in charge of the choir. This is the first 1971 LP issue, with no personnel listing. Perhaps the CD reissue (with a slight different cover featuring Rildo Hora’s face on red color) brings additional information. The back cover brings nice testimonies of several important artists, such like Elizeth Cardoso, Maestro Guerra Peixe, Nonato Buzar, Luiz Gonzaga and others.

I would like to reproduce Quimsy’s review to this album, an awe-inspiring declaration of love for Brazilian music. Tracks include:

“If you find Brasilian choro and frevo a little too ethnic or hardcore for your tastes, may I suggest this small offering as a way in. Samba legend Rildo Hora constructs this perfectly realised album of styles that for me encapsulates the sound of Brazil. The sound may derive from homegrown and regional musical styles but in Rildo’s hands we have something greater than the sum of its parts. Be sure, this album rocks.

Virtuoso harmonica player, guitarist and composer Hora lets loose a cracking batch of party driven tunes – groovy and danceable, vocally stirring and percussively infectious, a real winner and a musical education.” Quimsy.

01 – Leonor (Rildo Hora)
02 – Panorama Segundo Rodrigo (Rildo Hora / Antônio Carlos)
03 – Assim na Terra Como no Céu (Nonato Buzar / Roberto Menescal / Paulinho Tapajós)
04 – O Pião (Rildo Hora / Heitor Quintella)
05 – O Empinador (Rildo Hora)
06 – O Saci Pererê (Rildo Hora / Humberto Reis)
07 – A Canoa (Rildo Hora / Sergio Bittencourt)
08 – Tantas Ruas Namorei (Rildo Hora)
09 – Canção Que Nasceu do Amor (Rildo Hora / Clóvis Mello)
10 – Ciranda Terezinha e Passaraio (Rildo Hora)
11 – O Contador de Estórias (Rildo Hora / Gracindo Jr.)
12 – Chorar Pra Que (Rildo Hora)


Este disco pode ser buscado no Quimsy´s Mumbo Jumbo.

Elza Soares - Elza Soares (1974)

Hello, good evening! In the very first beginning of Loronix, someone credited Elza Soares albums as the perfect and natural heal to depression and day saver when you woke up in the morning with no energy for a day. I’ve been hearing this one at least once a day in the last week and now I understand our friend’s analogy. This album has a very good energy and it is the first time we are making available at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Elza Soares – Elza Soares (1974), for Tapecar, Elza’s first album at the tiny Tapecar label, the first after the termination of her contract with Odeon, her record company since the beginning where Elza could record 17 albums across the whole 60’s decade and part of the 70s. Musicians in this session were not credited by Tapecar, with the exception of Ed Lincoln, delivering truly awesome samba arrangements throughout the whole session. Tracks include:

01 – Bom Dia Portela (David Correia / Bebeto di São João)
02 – Pranto Livre (Dida / Everaldo da Viola)
03 – Não É Hora de Tristeza (Lino Roberto / Wilson Medeiros / Walter da Imperatriz)
04 – Meia-noite Já É Dia (Norival Reis / David Correia)
05 – Desabafo (Tatu / Nezinho / Campo)
06 – Partido do Lê Lê Lê (Otilo Gomes)
07 – Deusa do Rio Niger (Walter Norambê / Motorzinho)
08 – Quem Há de Dizer (Lupicínio Rodrigues / Alcides Gonçalves)
09 – Louvei Maria (Elza Soares)
10 – Xamêgo de Crioula (Zé Di)
11 – Falso Papel (Dário Marciano)
12 – Giringonça (Josealdo Fraga)


Este disco pode ser buscado no Um que Tenha, onde se encontra dentro do volume 9 do box Negra, da Elza Soares, juntamente com o disco de 1973, já publicado aqui no Órfãos do Loronix. Também está disponível no Flabbergasted Vibes.

Hello, good evening! Here we go on the second album provided by the mysterious member of Ignacio’s dynasty, Jose Ignacio Jr. kindly referred as JIN at his close circle of friends in Rio.

Thanks JIN for this solid addition to Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Moacyr Silva, Chaim Lewak, Julinho Barbosa, Waltel Branco, Edmundo Maciel e Paulinho Baterista – Os Cobras (1960), for Copacabana, presented here as a 1970 Beverly reissue, which is Copacabana subsidiary.

Vários Artistas - Elenco Première

Hello, good morning! My sleeping strategy is completely destabilized this week. I’m working on something that requires an above the average dedication and thinking and as the last activity of my agenda, I’m completely exhausted at Loronix time.

Publicado em: Thursday, September 25, 2008 by zecalouro

Hello, good evening! It is very good to be back to Loronix after a quick hiatus of only two days that seems to last a century! I slept an average of 3 hours per day over the past two days, and these days were indeed days of intense work. My only chance to stay away from my notebook was to put eye drops. My eyes hurt!
Anyway, I have good news. A negotiation with a new Loronix collaborator was just closed this morning, a pioneer of Brazilian music at the Internet, active years before Loronix creation. This collaborator belongs to a dynasty of Brazilian music lovers, actually, the third generation of this well-known family. The days of hard work jeopardized his first post, postponed for tomorrow. I’m sure that everybody will be surprised with what comes ahead in the forthcoming days.

Meanwhile, we have a flawless release sponsored by Jorge Mello, which I would like to introduce again since we have several new friends who recently discovered Loronix. Jorge Mello is a musician, composer, music researcher, teacher, book writer and a major reference of the works of Anibal Augusto Sardinha, also known as Garoto. When you search Google about Garoto, Trio Surdina, and many other artists, you get loads and loads of Jorge Mello’s writing, including an essential series of posts released as O Cancioneiro de Garoto, at Suvaco de Cobra. Jorge Mello has been pleased us with fantastic albums and I would like to invite you to reach at the end of this post the remake of Jorge Mello’s participation at ESPN Brasil Pontape Inicial show.

These days away of Loronix are making me speak like a parrot! Better introduce another release sponsored by Jorge Mello. Let’s see.

This is Luiz Bonfa – Meu Querido Violao (1959), for Odeon, a repost with everything improved compared with the first made available almost three years ago thought a scratchy transfer at 128 Kbps. I never heard about a reissue of this album in digital format. Luiz Bonfa plays violao in all tracks, accompanied by a very creative percussion work, courtesy of Pedro “Sorongo” dos Santos. Do not miss Jorge Mello at ESPN Brasil. Tracks include:

01 – Mosaico (Luis Bonfá)
02 – Paisagem Amazônica (Luis Bonfá)
03 – Dobrado Mirim (Luis Bonfá)
04 – Autunin In New York (V. Duke)
05 – Dança Índia (Luis Bonfá)

Hello, good evening! This is probably the most awaited reissue ever at Loronix. The comments section explains and the amount of direct requests made by email messages is countless. By the way, it is important to say that I use to address demands, especially for important albums such like this one. The only reason for taking a lot of time to address this one was the availability. I never had the chance take this one in my hands, such like many others on my hunting list.

However, the community is always rescuing us. We should say many, many thanks to an old contributor that came today out of the blue with this album. The legend rocks and the legend is our very good and connected friend AdHoc. Thanks AdHoc. Let’s see.

Anamaria E Mauricio - No No No... Estamos Na Nossa

Hello, good evening! This is the first out of a series of posts sponsored by a family, serving Brazilian music to the world since 2004. Meet Jose Ignacio Neto, grandchild of the legendary Nono Ze, owner, founder and maintainer of one of the first podcast services made available online, AVolta, which was all about Brazilian music. I said was, but the legacy remains on line as several episodes available at Odeo and Podcast Directory. I’m not sure the music is still available, but Ignacio’s writings really worth checking out.

Anyway, Jose Ignacio Neto speaks about the Ignacio’s story and I would like to invite you to engage his first contribution, which is Anamaria and Mauricio first album by Continental in 1972, arranged by Antonio Adolfo, Chico de Moraes, Arthur Verocai and Jongo Trio. According with JIN, a sought after by DJs in Europe and Japan, featuring a Repertoire chosen by Antonio Adolfo who appears to be playing electric piano on most selections. Let’s see.

Jose Ignacio Neto welcome message to Loronix community:

In 2004, despite his great age, my grandfather Jose Ignacio Brasileiro de Souza e Castro, was one of the world’s very first podcasters and the first person to podcast rare old Brasilian music to a curious world.

His podcast Avolta Brazilian Rare Grooves created each week in his apartment in Copacabana, was soon cult listening around the globe. However, in mid 2005 he passed away and for some time the music was stopped.

All was not lost, however, ‘Nono Ze’ as we liked to call him, left his entire record collections of over 150,000 78s, LPs, and cassettes to my father Jose Ignacio Jr. My father soon began to take up the podcast where Nono Ze left off. So was born Avolta Jr. Alas, my father was unable to find time to keep the podcasts going for more than one year, and even Avolta Jr also stopped podcasting. Further there was a big tragedy. His secret apartment in Flamengo (where my grandmother once believed Nono Ze kept his mistress but where in reality he kept his gigantic record collection) suffered from a terrible fire which melted so many of those fantastic records. But, not all of them…

But now it’s the time to introduce myself Jose Ignacio Brasileiro de Souza e Castro Neto – that means grandson. That’s right I am now the third member of my family to assume the Avolta name, and zecalouro has kindly invited me to post some of Nono Ze’s fantastic collection of rare Brazilian records to help and assist the amazing work already taken by Zeca and his Loronix friends.

So thank you Avolta fans for your patience and let’s start with the first post (of many we hope…)

This is Anamaria & Mauricio – No, No, No… Estamos na Nossa (1970), for Continental, featuring Jongo Trio, orchestral accompaniment and Lanny Gordin as special guest. Tracks include:

01 – Freio Aerodinâmico (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
02 – Lê Lê Lê (Ivan Lins / Ronaldo Monteiro de Souza)
03 – Marina Eu Vou (Ivan Lins / Ronaldo Monteiro de Souza)
04 – Escrito na Parede da Varanda (Ruy Maurity / José Jorge)

Marlene, Toquinho & Gianfrancesco Guarnieri – Botequim (1973)

Publicado em: Monday, September 22, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I’m perhaps in the mood of addressing long time requests made by our community. That’s what happened in the last post by Sergio Ricardo and his sought after collaboration with Piri Reis and friends. And it happens again today with this unknown but fertile collaboration between Toquinho and Gianfrancesco Sigfrido Benedetto Marinenghi de Guarnieri, mostly known as Gianfrancesco Guarnieri, an important Brazilian actor and play writer.

In spite of being not credited as main performer at Botequim, Marlene, the great diva of the golden Radio Nacional years make the difference here. That’s why I decided to include her name as main performer at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Marlene, Toquinho & Gianfrancesco Guarnieri – Botequim (1973), for RGE, featuring music composed by Toquinho and Gianfrancesco Guarnieri for three Guarnieri plays, Botequim, Castro Alves pede Passagem and Um Grito Parado no Ar. Loronixer’s Brazilian friends will immediately associate Gianfrancesco Guarnieri with the play Eles Nao usam Black Tie, written eight years later in 1981, an acknowledged play inside and outside Brazil. This is a nice album with Marlene delivering beautiful singing and Toquinho playing very solid. Tracks include:

01 – Quem Sabe Mais (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: MARLENE
02 – Esperando Por Você (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: TOQUINHO
03 – Canção do Medo (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: MARLENE
04 – Meu Tempo e Castro Alves (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: TOQUINHO
05 – Sou Assim (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: MARLENE
06 – Um Grito Parado no Ar (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: TOQUINHO
07 – Quanto Vale Uma Criança (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: TOQUINHO / MARLENE
08 – Embolada no Carrapato (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: GIANFRANCESCO GUARNIERI
09 – Mesa de Bar (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: MARLENE
10 – Dane-se (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: MARLENE
11 – Vem Amor Vem Vingança (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: TOQUINHO
12 – Bobeou Não Vai Entender (Toquinho / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with: TOQUINHO

Hello, good evening! I had an amazing week, with some problems in the middle, but the overall picture was very positive. And today was a special day. I was interviewed by a group of very nice friends, Loronixer’s friends by the way. They are running a documentary about the legendary Brazilian pianist Dom Salvador, which is also a very good friend of our community. I met Dom Salvador today and we spoke about music and about the albums Dom is having the opportunity to hear again via Loronix. Dom Salvador is a giant and a very kind gentleman. Thanks a lot Dom.

And my meeting with Dom Salvador was the end of my participation. However, I was invited to continue with the group and visit Elza Soares at her place in Copacabana to record the encounter of Don Salvador and Elza Soares after several years. Obviously, I took a fraction of a second to say “yes” and could stay for a couple of hours with Elza Soares, a marvelous woman who radiates peace and energy. Elza Soares is a great artist and a great human being.

I left the group in euphoria, having in mind something solid to Loronix today. And I could find for an unbelievable price one of most requested albums by our community featuring the Sergio Ricardo and Piri Reis delivering a surprisingly record that you cannot miss. Let’s see.

This is Sergio Ricardo – Piri, Fred, Cassio Franklin e Paulinho de Camafeu com Sergio Ricardo (1973), for Continental. I’m sure this is an awaited released by many friends. The community is always right, we have here a very nice album featuring only acoustic instruments and Sergio Ricardo compositions. It is so cool and different that makes it very hard to describe. I invite you to check a teaser track at Loronix Preview Center, just to make sure you will come back here. Tracks include:


Sergio Ricardo
(violao, viola, piano)

(violao, viola, rabeca, bandolim)

(piano, flute)

Publicado em: Thursday, September 18, 2008 by zecalouro

The last challenge game featuring Baden Powell and Rosana Toledo performing together was really interest. I was curious to understand why they were performing together, since I never heard about a connection between Baden and Rosana Toledo. The answer came yesterday with an interview made by Café Brasil with Rosana Toledo in June 2006, which I invite you to read at this link.

Rosana Toledo says that Baden Powell performs in some of her albums, and this one is probably included. They were friends in the very first beginning of Baden Powell career, which now explains that amazing photo. Rosana lives today at Retiro dos Artistas, a very important initiative in Rio de Janeiro, providing housing and support to artists with special needs. This is the repost of the Rosana Toledo second LP and her first album made available at Loronix in November 2006. Let’s see.

This is Rosana Toledo – …e a Vida Continua (1962), for RGE, featuring arrangements by Maestro Nelsinho, in front of the legendary Orquestra RGE. Sister of Luiz Bonfa’s wife, Maria Helena Toledo, Rosana ended her career prematurely, after recording only five albums and a 78rpm. Her albums never had a chance of being reissued in CD and Loronix has some to offer, including her last album, a nice contribution made by Caetano Rodrigues, here. …e a Vida Continua repertoire is based on Sambas by Noel Rosa, Jair Amorim, Vadico among others. Tracks include:

01 – E a Vida Continua (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia)
02 – Porque Fui Te Encontrar (Nelsinho / Orlando Henriques)
03 – Que Deus Me Dê (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia)
04 – Palmatória do Mundo (Toso Gomes / Umberto Silva)
05 – Não Me Diga Adeus (Paquito / Luis Soberano / João Correia da Silva)
06 – Dá-me Tuas Mãos (Erasmo Silva / Jorge Castro)
07 – Salve Ogum (Pernambuco / Mário Rossi)

Publicado em: Tuesday, September 16, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I’m asking myself why I did not make this post earlier. Several friends were asking for this album and I could understand why a couple of weeks ago when I took it for a spin. This duo is really magical, sublime and absolutely outstanding. The brothers Sergio and Eduardo Abreu were active during the 60’s and the early 70’s and they are considered by many the most amazing classical guitar ensemble ever. Just Google and you will understand. Decades were passed and they still have international acknowledgment. My apologies to everybody who asked for a Duo Abreu career album. Let’s see.

This is Sergio Abreu & Eduardo Abreu – Os Violoes de Sergio e Eduardo Abreu (1971), for Columbia. I never heard about a CD reissue of this album or any other Duo Abreu record. In the other hand, the Internet has plenty information about their music and I would like to recommend one of the best resources I found about Duo Abreu and Brazilian violão as well, which is the website owned and maintained by Fabio Zanon, a Brazilian musician that lead an anthological series of 26 radio programs called “A Arte do Violao”, mandatory for musicians and everybody who appreciates this wonderful instrument. I think the brothers Sergio and Eduardo Abreu are auto explanatory, I could stay here writing pages of text about their music, but is better let you with Duo Abreu. Have a good night and a solid start of another week. Tracks include:

01 – Anon | Drewries Accordes
02 – Anon | O Rouxinol
03 – Telemann | Canon (Transcr. Sergio Abreu)
04 – D. Scarlatti | K. 9 (L. 413) Pastorale (Transcr. Pujol)
05 – J.S. Bach | Prelude 3 (Vol. 1 from The Well Tempered Clavier – transcription Sergio Abreu)
06 – Scheidler | Sonata in D – I Allegro (Edited by Karl Scheitt)
07 – Scheidler | Sonata em D – II Romanze (Edited by Karl Scheitt)
08 – Sheidler | Sonata em D – III Rondo/Allegro (Edited by Karl Scheitt)
09 – F. Sor | Theme and Variations

Hello, good evening! I need to reach my bed early today. It is necessary to wake up very early tomorrow to visit my vet for a scheduled maintenance. I was planning another release for today, a release sponsored by Jorge Mello that requires a solid research. I was very close to my bed when I remembered another Jorge Mello contribution that would be really easy to review, which is this one, an album recorded by Luiz Eca in 1970 for Philips, produced by Roberto Menescal and – as the cover shows – tailored for the international market. Let’s see.

This is Luiz Eca – Brazil 70 (1970), for Philips. Besides Luiz Eca piano and arrangements in all tracks, little I know about this album. My Google searches did not return credits on musicians and additional details on this session. This is a Luiz Eca career album that I never heard about and we should say “Thank You!” to Jorge Mello for another fantastic addition to Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – O Cantador (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta)
02 – Andança (Danilo Caymmi / Edmundo Souto / Paulinho Tapajós)
03 – Cantiga Por Luciana (Edmundo Souto / Paulinho Tapajós)
04 – País Tropical (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)

It has been two months since we made the last Choro album at Loronix. It is a lot of time, and to fulfill the needs of several friends, including Martoni, from The Netherlands, I would like to offer what is considered by many, the best Choro album recorded in Brazil. Actually, the first out of two legendary Choro albums recorded by Altamiro Carrilho and Regional do Canhoto titled “Choros Imortais”. Let’s see.

This is Altamiro Carrilho & Canhoto e Seu Regional – Choros Imortais (1964), for Copacabana, presented here by a SOM SOLP reissue, probably released in the late 60’s. I could not track any information about the release year. Altamiro Carrilho has several albums available at Loronix, but it is the first time an album with the participation of Canhoto is being released. Canhoto, born as Waldiro Frederico Tramontano, was an important Choro musician. He lead more than 40 years his Conjunto Regional, responsible for the first steps of several renowned musicians in the style, such like Dino 7 Cordas, Altamiro Carrilho, Meira, Orlando Silveira, Gilson de Freitas and after the departure of Altamiro Carrilho in the early 60’s, Carlos Poyares. This photo brings Canhoto e Seu Regional in the 50’s, taken from Acervo Sergio Prata and probably features the members of this recording session, not provided by Copacabana. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! Here we go on another very easy challenge game, this time with only one artist to be identified since I’m sure that everybody should easily confirm who is backing the singer with a guitar! Baden Powell, which I never saw playing guitar before. Piece of cake, who is singing?

Hope uEnjoy!

Sorry, I could not resist extending today’s challenge a little bit showing Baden Powell again. Both photos were taken at the anthological Bossa Nova concert at Faculdade de Arquitetura, Rio de Janeiro, 1959. This second challenge has also only one artist to be identified. Just tell me how is playing trumpet behind Baden Powell. Not so easy, but I think people should make it very fast this time.

Hope uEnjoy! v.2


Só consegui (acho) a segunda foto do desafio. Alguém teria a primeira foto para compartilhar conosco? Ela deve mostrar, além do Baden, a cantora Rosana Toledo.

Baden Powell – Baden Powell (1971)

Publicado em: Thursday, September 11, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I’m late for today’s post, but it is for a very good reason. Loronix page load time was increasing daily and some friends were even with no access to Loronix. It was a critical situation, fixed by the replacement of CBox, also known as Quadradinho, for another tagboard solution. Cbox was the root cause of the problem. You should feel the difference while reading this message.

Anyway, I’m really tired and this is not the best situation to write this important post, kindly made available by the great Jorge Mello. This album was recorded by Baden Powell in Paris, just after the excellent series of three albums called Baden Powell Quartet Volumes 1, 2 and 3. This album does not have a title and you need to take it on your hands to read the back cover and understands that Baden Powell makes a tribute album for two great musicians with a strong influence of Baden’s career, which are Pixinguinha and the legendary Garoto. Baden Powell performs four renditions of each one and completes the repertoire with two compositions by his own. Let’s see.

This is Baden Powell – Baden Powell (1971), for Barclay, a tribute to Pixinguinha and Garoto, with Baden performing and singing with one of his favorite’s divas, Jeanine de Waleyne. Baden Powell is an awesome musician and there is something that really makes him different from all others, he puts passion on everything and this makes the different, especially on these renditions of two other geniuses. We should say thank you to Jorge Mello for this really nice album. Tracks include:


Baden Powell
(voice, violao)
Nelson Serra de Castro
Cesario Alvim
Silvio Silveira, Luiz Agudo

Special Guests

Jeanine de Waleyne
(voice on tracks 04, 08)
Raymond Guiot
(flute on 04)
Pierre Gossez
(sax on 02)

Track List

01 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha / João de Barro)
02 – Violão Vadio (Baden Powell / Paulo César Pinheiro)
03 – Bom de Dedo (Garoto)
04 – Naquele Tempo (Pixinguinha / Benedito Lacerda)
05 – Gente Humilde (Chico Buarque / Garoto / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – Rosa (Pixinguinha)

Hello, good evening! I think we will have today the same situation we had tomorrow on our last post, an unknown album recorded by a great artist and never released in CD. Maybe I’m wrong, but except from some occasional and small reissues, Quarteto em Cy – Querelas do Brasil, never had a chance to be released at the digital age. This is a repost, Querelas do Brasil was made available first in November 2006 with no back cover, transferred at a low bitrate and had a track missing. Everything is now updated and I hope you have a very nice time with this great vocal group. Let’s see.

This is Quarteto em Cy – Querelas do Brasil (1978), for Philips, which is probably the most “political flavored” album released by the girls, with several lyrics about Brazilian problems of that time. By the way, the album title is taken from one of those songs; Querelas do Brasil by Mauricio Tapajos and Aldir Blanc. Such as many Brazilian albums released in the 70’s, Querelas do Brazil features a constellation of Brazilian musicians, including Sivuca, Antonio Adolfo, Luizao, Neco, Copinha, Raul de Barros and many others. Tracks include:


Paulinho Braga, Zequinha
Luizao Maia, Jamil Joanes
Luis Claudio, Miltinho

Jorge Ben - Bem-Vinda Amizade

Hello, good evening! It is always very easy to find information about Jorge Ben albums and career, especially information written by people outside Brazil, where Jorge Ben seems to have a giant popularity. Every Jorge Ben album released at Loronix created at least ten comments, no exception. However, I could not find much information about Bem-vinda Amizade, perhaps never released on CD. Maybe I’m wrong. I had a nice time with this album today; several songs were popular by the release time in 1981. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Bem-vinda Amizade (1981), for Som Livre, featuring well known Jorge Ben compositions. I’m not versed on Jorge Ben discography, but this one seems to be on a more relaxed mood, different from Alo Alo, Como Vai?, released in the same year. Personnel listing features several percussionists supporting Jorge Ben guitar with the accompaniment of bass, drums and keyboards, in some tracks played by the legendary Lincoln Olivetti. Tracks include:


Jorge Ben

Just to support some quick decisions I have to make when I’m not home, such like this one I will tell you. I found this album today at Copacabana by one of those prices that nobody believes. All I had with me was this fantastic cover, very similar, actually, the same cover used by EMI Odeon on a Elza Soares box set released in 2003.

A complimentary information was the release year, 1973. I had no choice besides taking R$ 3 Reais from my pocket and take it home, where I discovered this is an Elza Soares career album never released before at Loronix. I have this album, but never considered for Loronix because of this cover, showing Elza Soares a little frightening and dark, exactly the opposite of what we have right now with this Odeon Coronado reissue, where Elza is only joy and happiness. Let’s see.

This is Elza Soares – Aquarela Brasileira (1973), for Odeon, which is the last album recorded by Elza Soares at Odeon, her record company since the first album released in 1960. Musicians in this session were not credited by Odeon and I had little time to do a search and retrieve additional info. But who cares about that? This is Elza Soares, never released at Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – Aquarela Brasileira (Silas de Oliveira)
02 – Busto Calado (Rubens da Silva / Orlando Costa ”Maestro Cipó”)
03 – Pranto de Poeta (Nelson Cavaquinho / Guilherme de Brito)
04 – Dia de Graça (Candeia)
05 – Maria José (Fritz / Nereu Gargalo)
06 – Zelão (Sergio Ricardo)
07 – Canoa Furada (Gisa Nogueira)
08 – Solidão (Luis Roberto / Paulo Martini)
09 – Sete Linhas (Sidney da Conceição)
10 – Festa da Vinda (Cartola / Nuno Veloso)
11 – Lá Vou Eu (Delcio Carvalho)
12 – Eu Não Toco Berimbau (Serrinha / Mazola)


Este disco está disponível no Um que Tenha, fazendo parte do vol. 9 do Box Negra, em conjunto com o disco da Elza de 1974.

Até hoje, não tinha visto um vídeo com o grande Moacyr Silva ao vivo. Some-se a isto o fato dele tocar ao lado da magnífica Elizeth Cardoso. Este  não apareceu no Loronix, mas tem tudo a ver com ele, por isto compartilho com vocês.

Paulinho Nogueira - Paulinho Nogueira

Hello, good evening! I had a crazy week, with lots of things to do and I can’t believe how fast these five days passed so quickly. When I was a kid, my grandfather said that as long as we get older as fast the time goes away. That’s what I’m feeling. I remember Christmas as it was last week. Anyway, Jorge Mello comes to please us again with another of his awesome albums, featuring an artist of great appreciation at Loronix, Paulinho Nogueira. Let’s see.

This is Paulinho Nogueira – Paulinho Nogueira (1965), for RGE, featuring an instrumental Paulinho Nogueira with a reduced percussion accompaniment in charge of Radamanto and Rogerio. This is the kind of album that grabs your attention at the first hearing; Paulinho Nogueira performs a repertoire of well known bossa nova cuts, including his rendition of Luiz Bonfa’s Manha de Carnaval and Paulinho’s Bachianinha Nr. 1. My choice to Loronix Preview Center is 06 – So Tinha de Ser com Voce (Antonio Carlos Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira). Tracks include:


Paulinho Nogueira
(violao, arrangements)
Radames, Rogerio

Track List

01 – Menino das Laranjas (Theo de Barros)
02 – Inútil Paisagem (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
03 – Aleluia (Edu Lobo / Ruy Guerra)
04 – Minha Namorada (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – Bachianinha Nº 1 (Paulinho Nogueira)
06 – Só Tinha Que Ser Com Você (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
07 – Jesus Alegria dos Homens (Johann Sebastian Bach)
08 – Arrastão (Edu Lobo / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – Você (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
10 – Opinião (Zé Keti)
11 – Samba Bom (Vera Brasil)
12 – Manhã de Carnaval (Luis Bonfá / Antônio Maria)

Gal Costa – O Sorriso do Gato de Alice (1993)

Publicado em: Thursday, September 04, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I spent a lot of time deciding the album we would have today at Loronix. It happens every day, it is always very hard to make this choice. All options were very good, each one with its ups and downs, but in the last minute I thought it would be a great idea to bring Gal Costa back to Loronix front page. It has been quite a time since her last release was made, and she is an artist that everybody loves. Let’s see.

This is Gal Costa – O Sorriso do Gato de Alice (1993), for BMG RCA, featuring Gal Costa with Arto Lindsay production and a constellation of special guests. Although issued very recently in 1993, this album has been unexplainably out of print. I read some reviews today and it is interesting how they vary at the extreme, with some people saying this is Gal Costa at her best and others – probably influenced by the arrangements with lots of percussions – saying it does not add much to Gal Costa discography. I think Jorge Ben fans with have a nice entertainment with Sorriso do Gato de Alice, featuring several Jorge Ben songs, including Alkahool, one of my favorites here. Tracks include:

Special Guests

Caetano Veloso
Gilberto Gil
Jorge Ben
Paulinho da Viola


Paulo Belinati
(violao, viola, seresta, percussion, arrangements)
Arthur Maia
(bass, arrangements)
Jurim Moreira, Carlos Bala
Marcal, Marcos Suzano, Marcelo Costa, Monica Millet
Mark Ribot, Celso Fonseca, Arto Lindsay
Paulo Calazans
Paulinho da Viola
Jorge Ben
Oswaldo Lenine
Jota Moraes
Mauro Senise
Marcos Pereira
Gilberto Gil
Nico Assumpcao
Frank London

Track List

01 – Bahia Minha Preta (Caetano Veloso)
02 – Bumbo da Mangueira (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
03 – Errática (Caetano Veloso)
04 – Mãe da Manhã (Gilberto Gil)
05 – Gratitude (Arto Lindsay / Caetano Veloso)
06 – Eu Vou Lhe Avisar (Jorge Ben)
07 – Nuvem Negra (Djavan)
08 – Lavagem do Bonfim (Gilberto Gil)
09 – Serene (Djavan / Arto Lindsay)
10 – Você e Você (Gilberto Gil)

Egberto Gismonti - Egberto Gismonti

Hello, good evening! Here we go with another nice album sponsored by Jorge Mello, which is the very first Egberto Gismonti LP, recorded for Elenco in 1969. If you are used with Egberto Gismonti albums released after his departure from Brazil, you will have a surprise with this one. Gismonti sings and the whole atmosphere is Bossa Nova, although released in a time where the movement had already lost his momentum. Let’s see.

This is Egberto Gismonti – Egberto Gismonti (1969), for Elenco, featuring a blend of vocal and instrumental tracks with Egberto Gismonti singing, arranging all tracks and playing piano, violao and organ. There are two very special guests, Dulce Nunes, singing with Egberto Gismonti at 09 – Clama Claro and Durval Ferreira playing violao on 03 – Pr’um Samba. The whole session features accompaniment by the renowned Wilson das Neves and Sergio Barroso, as described in personnel listing. Tracks include:

Mário Reis - Mario Reis

Hello, good evening! This is my tribute to the centenary of a singer never mentioned before at Loronix, but of extreme importance for Brazilian popular music, Mario Reis, considered the most original singer in the 30’s for his gentle singing style, which thirty years later had influenced Bossa Nova. Take in consideration that in the 30’s, it was necessary to sing very loud to address the shortcomings of the microphones, still rudimentary.

Mario Reis abandoned his singing career very early at the end of the 30’s and most of his albums were recorded in 78 rotations between the 20’s and 30’s. This is the last album recorded by Mario Reis and I’m really fascinated by his voice and his interpretation. I’m looking for some of Mario Reis recordings in 78RPM, they are probably amazing. Meanwhile, I invite you to know a great and probably unknown singer for many Loronix’s friends. Let’s see.

This is Mario Reis – Mario Reis (1971), for Odeon, featuring Mario Reis performing Sambas with his unique voice. Maestro Lindolpho Gaya delivers arrangements and also plays the role of musical director. Musicians in this session were not credited by Odeon. Tracks include:

01 – Cansei (Sinho)
02 – Amar a Uma Só Mulher (Sinho)
03 – Moreninha da Praia (João de Barro)
04 – Fui Louco (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide”)
05 – Nem É Bom Falar (Ismael Silva / Francisco Alves / Nilton Bastos)
06 – Voltei a Cantar (Lamartine Babo)
07 – A Banda (Chico Buarque)
08 – Filosofia (Noel Rosa)
09 – Rasguei a Minha Fantasia (Lamartine Babo)
10 – Gosto Que Me Enrosco (Sinho)
11 – Se Você Jurar (Ismael Silva / Nilton Bastos / Francisco Alves)
