Hello, good evening! Mr. Jose Ignacio Neto, kindly known as JIN, the third generation of the Ignacio’s family, a family devoted to Brazilian music, and also the owner and maintainer of the legendary “A Volta” Podcast, is back to Loronix. JIN brings fantastic contributions this time, which includes a great “surprise to zeca”, an unknown album that JIN guarantees it is something never heard before by many friends. Stay tuned in the forthcoming days. Let’s see.

This is Manfredo Fest – After Hours (1972), for Daybreak, featuring Manfredo Fest piano backed by a group of American musicians. JIN wants to start great and I agree this is a great start. Manfredo Fest is one of the most requested artists by Loronix community. He was a Bossa Nova pioneer in Brazil and had also a very solid career in the US, where he made his move in the mid 1960’s, invited by Sergio Mendes and never came back to Brazil. JIN also says this album is a sought after collectors piece and widely unknown in Brazil. Tracks include:


Manfredo Fest
David King
Jay Goetting, Dick Studer
David Karr, Ray Komishke
(flute, sax)
Jack Gillespie
Jin ten Benzel, Ken Haugesag
Roman Gomes
(conga, drums)
Aurelio Grott, Mailto Rodrigues
(conga, tambourine)

Many thanks zeca and JIN. I had seen information somewhere about this album a few years ago, but I’ve never heard the recording. Manfredo is still missed… a wonderful pianist.

oh what a smooth album! Thanks JIN for the upload! These recordings are just full of cool. I absolutely love the break down at the end of ‘Theme From Love Story’.
