Outra péssima notícia.

Mais um excelente blog, agora o Abracadabra, foi fechado pelo Google. Segundo a Bruxa do Vinil, os motivos alegados foram “denúncia e incompatibilidade com os termos de adesão”.  Quando isto vai parar? Quando todos os blogs musicais de qualidade estiverem fechados?

Felizmente a nossa amiga Bruxa é uma guerreira, e me disse que deve refazer o blog em outro endereço. Vamos ficar torcendo para que isto aconteça em breve.





Doces Barbaros – Doces Barbaros (1976)

Doces Bárbaros, Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil & Maria Bethânia - Doces Bárbaros

I have a nice connection with this album and I’m glad it is back to Loronix again. The first time it was made available, it lasts less than 24 hours. I made it by mistake, a few copies were already being sold by an on-line store and now it has gone definitively out of print, which is a shame, this is a classic. As I said, this album was important for my background as an amateur musician and also to drag my attention to Brazilian music and the four giants that share the role of main performer, the tropicalia legends Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Gal Costa and Caetano’s sister Maria Bethania. Let’s see.

This is Doces Barbaros – Doces Barbaros (1976), for Philips, according with many reviews I read today, this is one of the nicest Brazilian popular music albums recorded in the 70’s. The group and the concert were assembled to celebrate 10 years of their artistic career. I also learn something that I did not know today, a DVD was released with original footage of these concerts as a documentary featuring backstage scenes and live performances. Meanwhile, let’s stay with this double album, in the spirit of Carmen Miranda Centennial. Tracks include:

Carmen Miranda | 100 Anos

Publicado em: Tuesday, February 10, 2009 by zecalouro

 

Hello, good evening! Brazil celebrates Carmen Miranda 100th Centennial today. She was born in 9 February 1909. I’m disappointed for not having any album with her unique music to make a tribute. However, it is essential that Loronix makes this tribute.

I like this picture with Carmen Miranda without all that tropical clothes and I hope you also like it. In addition, I’m making available two videos that are really worth checking out. The first video features Carmen Miranda hosted by Ed Wynn in 1949, United States. She has the accompaniment of the legendary O Bando da Lua, and you can notice the presence of Aloysio de Oliveira among O Bando da Lua members. Thanks to Doni Sacramento for this important document.

The second features the last known Carmen Miranda images and impressive scenes of her funeral in Rio de Janeiro, 1955. Thanks to In Memorian website for sharing this film.

I hope our tribute to Carmen Miranda is respectful and appropriate to the importance of this great artist.

Hope uEnjoy!

Todos os amantes da boa música brasileira devem ter se surpreendido ao tentar acessar hoje o blog Parallel Realities.  A mensagem é de que o blog foi removido pelo Google.

O Milan, proprietário do blog, me disse que, além do Parallel Realities, também foram removidos os dois outros blogs que ele tinha, dedicados à cantora Waleska. Até a sua conta no Google foi apagada.

Felizmente, o Milan mantém um espelho do blog no WordPress, onde os links para os discos continuam funcionando: http://parallelrealitiesstudio.wordpress.com/
Ele ainda está tentando entender o que aconteceu e por que o blog foi removido. Não recebeu nenhuma comunicação do Google indicando o motivo e está tentando um contato com a empresa.
É difícil de entender as razões da remoção, uma vez que o blog publica discos muito antigos, dos quais quase ninguém sabia da existência, prestando um serviço fundamental de resgate para a nossa cultura.  Os blogs da Waleska, que também foram removidos, são, inclusive, publicados com o apoio da Waleska e da Lilian Marques, sua produtora.
Enfim, estamos todos torcendo para que a situação se resolva e que o Parallel Realities continue nos brindando com a música que não conseguiriamos acesso se não fosse por trabalhos como o do Milan.




Dilermando Reis – Gotas de Lagrimas (1963)

Hello, good evening! When I started this transfer tonight, I realized that I could not get away from the turntable hearing the opening track 01 – Gotas de Lagrimas, which is also the title track, a beautiful waltz, and perhaps a complex and challenging piece to any guitar player, absolutely unknown to me. Later, a few Google searches were enough to understand that Mozart Bicalho (Gotas de Lagrimas composer) is another Brazilian guitar master, compared to big names such like Joao Pernambuco and Canhoto. I will tell you a little bit more about this piece. Let’s see.

This is Dilermando Reis – Gotas de Lagrimas (1963), for Continental, another worth checking Dilermando Reis LP, featuring his own compositions and renditions of well-known instrumental tunes. Gotas de Lagrimas was recorded for the first time by Mozart Bicalho in 1930, having its first transcription in the early 1960’s by Dilermando Reis, who made a very important work of publishing in written music many tunes that are considered today a very important part of Brazilian guitar tradition. As a whole, Gotas de Lagrimas is a delicious album, tailored for musicians and people who just want to appreciate beautiful tunes played by a really gifted musician. Tracks include:

01 – Gotas de Lágrimas (Mozart Bicalho)
02 – Brejeiro (Ernesto Nazareth)
03 – Volve Volve (Carola)
04 – La Cumparsita (Matos Rodrigues)
05 – Rapsódia Infantil (Dilermando Reis)
06 – Nossa Ternura (Dilermando Reis)
07 – Cateretê Mineiro (Levino Conceição)
08 – Cisne Branco (Antônio Manoel do Espírito Santo / Benedito Xavier de Macedo)
09 – Eterna Saudade (Dilermando Reis)
10 – Interrogando (João Pernambuco)
11 – Gauchinha (Dilermando Reis)
12 – Suspiro da Nega (Nelson Piló)

Hello, good evening! I was dedicated on this writing during the last 3 hours. I made different versions using some ideas and approaches and I could not reach the results I was looking for. Now my eyes hurt, and if you have diabetes, you cannot play with your eyes. However, I cannot wait another 24 hours. I decided to write it from scratch, it is a very important post. This fantastic musician is being introduced to Loronix’s community for the first time tonight. And he is also, how can I say… a “true” Loronixer, a challenge winner that you already known using the gorgeous nickname of Pianista Sambista. Guilherme Vergueiro. Let’s see.

This is Guilherme Vergueiro – Guilherme Vergueiro Ao Vivo (1982), for Estudio Eldorado, recorded live at “International Jazz Montmartre”, Copenhagen, Denmark. It is hard to believe that I had the chance to hear this album for the first time only this week. This is really fantastic music played with passion by this quartet. I urge Loronix’s community to take Ao Vivo for a hearing and also visit Guilherme Vergueiro official website at www.guilhermevergueiro.com.br and the Pianista Sambista’s blog at http://pianeiro.blogspot.com. This album never had a CD reissue and I put a lot of energy on this transfer. Thanks Guilherme Vergueiro for the music, the respect you have to your public, the happiness and the energy. I’m making available Guilherme Vergueiro’s own biography taken from his official website. Tracks include:

I am a Brazilian who sees music as a work of art. I had all the classical training, but decided to get into the popular genre, because I have always been a deluded by Samba, Samba Canção (Brazilian ballad), Choro, Seresta and Bossa Nova. And I always been that way and behave this way since the beginning of my career in the late 60s.

Each song that I play, each performance, each recording has to be definitive. As an art we have in the living room wall throughout our lives. I like to interpret in my way and style, Brazilian music, translating the melodies, harmonies and Brazilian rhythms into the human feelings, the feelings of the Brazilian people, and for being like this I am very demanding with myself. I feel a huge responsibility every time I play the piano. Also I do not like to ever repeat myself. If I have to play the same song a myriad of times, each time has to be different, according to the day, time, era, the audience and especially my state of mind. Each day is a day, every hour is an hour. I have always to be open to what I’m feeling at the moment, open to new ideas that emerge in the middle of an interpretation, of an improvisation. I have no restrictions when I play the piano. I relate to it, we became one. My heart is the boss. Sends what I am feeling to my brain which in return sends the messages to my fingers. All of this in milliseconds. You should be very concentrated, otherwise the boat sinks. I just love the challenge, the emotion, the freedom that comes playing like that. Some pianists play with the fingers, I play with the heart.

I have infinite respect for the audience that is listening to me. My wish is to perpetuate in their hearts feelings, feelings that never will leave them. Sadness, joy, tension, density, lightness, rebellion, always truthful and sincere feelings, identifiable with the feelings and life of each. After all, every human being is equal, we all have our tragedies, struggles, loves, passions, adventures and misadventures, problems, joys, sorrows, happiness, certainty and uncertainty, insecurity and security and when we go to a concert, show, or listen to some music at home, in the car, we are actually looking for some form of relief and/or comfort to our souls, and sometimes I am the one who take responsibility for bring this relief and/or comfort to people. I feel a huge responsibility. I dive into the bottom of my soul to find the most pure and sincere sentiments so the public can leave a little of the harsh reality of life behind, and go to other dimensions, other spheres, more calm and benevolent, where love prevails, where the union really is the force, where there is peace, tranquility and serenity. I always hope for that all my appearances and/or recordings stay for ever in the heart and soul of the people. I am very careful with this, but I confess that I feel I’m still learning. That music is infinite and that learning ends only when God calls us for other missions.

But since I’m still here, (and hopefully stay for a long time), I still am always eager for the improvement of my mission here, which is to be a musician. A Brazilian musician. A Pianist. Be more patient, dedicated, conscientious and increasingly concentrated.

I pray to God to never forget me, (as He never forgot), that my inspiration and my love for others are increasingly in accordance with His teachings and that I can accomplish the task that was given to me always with more balance, wisdom, concentration, strength, responsibility, joy and much love, whether playing, composing, arranging, producing or making a documentary. (My new passion.)

In my life I already, experienced much love, joy, excitement, difficulties, betrayal, losses … but I survived. I did much good, I made many friends, (Maybe I have some enemies, but either I do not know them or I do not know that is an enemy) but I also sinned. A whole lot of sins. I had many false friends. Many women left me. But the music and the piano never. Neither the real friends. Thank God!” (Guilherme Vergueiro)

This is Juca Mestre and His Brasileiros – Panorama Musical do Brasil (1962), for Audio Fidelity (USA), yet another album recorded in Brazil, featuring Brazilian musicians and produced for the US audience. This cover is so great that alone makes this album an essential to Loronix collection, regardless the music inside, which is not the case. Panorama Musical do Brasil is above the average and features a sort of “big band” playing hits of the time with very nice arrangements by Maestro Juca Mestre.

I’m also making available an equivalent picture of Enseada de Botafogo taken last year. It is nice to see how Rio de Janeiro has changed across four decades. I was not born in 1962, but I really miss this time. And since everybody is now hearing Joao Gilberto or visiting Toque Musical, I would like to make a challenge. The first comment sent with the identification of Juca Mestre wins a Rapidshare one-month Premium Account. Tracks include:

02 – Mulata Assanhada (Ataulfo Alves)
03 – Poema do Adeus (Luis Antônio)

Hello, good evening! It is nice to introduce a new artist to Loronix community, and it is also nice to make a Samba album again. Needless to say again that I am not the right person to review a Samba LP, but I believe we are in front of one of those classic albums in the style. Roberto Ribeiro has a great voice and it is a really good Samba interpreter. He delivers that kind of melodic Samba in minor key and this album features some of his well known tunes released in the 1970’s. Let’s see.

Elza Soares & Roberto Ribeiro - Sangue, Suor E RaçaThis is Roberto Ribeiro – Arrasta Povo (1976), for Odeon. Now I remember that Loronix has already an album recorded by Roberto Ribeiro, which is his first LP, the impossible to find Sangue, Suor e Raca (1972) with Elza Soares, highly recommended — just click at the album cover in your left — and featuring arrangements by Maestro Dom Salvador. By the way, Elza Soares “revealed” Roberto Ribeiro with this album and some singles released with him in the period. I think you will have a very solid listening with Roberto Ribeiro.

Hello, good evening! Before talking about this fantastic contribution sponsored by Jorge Mello, I would like to show an important upgrade made on Loronix Preview Center, available since yesterday night. Before this upgrade, I have to admit that our “radio” was really boring, static, with the same set of songs every day.

Things are really different now. The playlist, which is the list of songs available, is now sitting in a database, running in our dedicated server. Instead of a limited and static list, Loronix Preview Center is now recovering 35 songs, drawn randomly from a total of 353 available. The list of songs you have right now is different from mine and also different from other friends. Really great, but just a detail.

Take a look at the bottom part of the player. We have a search feature available and this is the great thing about Loronix Preview Center. It is very easy, just enter a search term and our database will return another set of songs, according to your selected criteria. You can search for an artist, a song, an album name and even a musical genre. As an example, searching the term “instrumental” makes Loronix Preview Center returns only instrumental tracks. Feel free to play with Loronix Preview Center and don’t forget to report if something does not work as it should. The new player is available here and permanently at Loronix side bar.
This is Canhoto – Um Violao Direito nas Maos do Canhoto (1974), for the legendary label Rozenblit, featuring for the first time at Loronix Canhoto da Paraiba, a true violao. I invite you to take a look at Canhoto’s entry available at Musicos do Brasil | Uma Enciclopedia with important statements of Paulinho da Viola and Jacob do Bandolim about this important but really underestimated musician.

João Gilberto, Stan Getz & Miúcha - The Best of Two Worlds

Hello, good evening! I’m trying to make this post since Saturday night. And I’m really sorry about this; I had to skip a really important celebration yesterday, which was Antonio Carlos Jobim, 82 years birthday. Additionally, I missed some announcements of friends that were celebrating Antonio Carlos Jobim yesterday, such as the great work made by Jassvan in New York, running a Marathon with Jobim’s music and special guests on WKCR-89.9FM, also at www.wkcr.org. I’m really sad to miss this announcement and also missing the broadcast tribute itself. Jassvan always speaks about Loronix on his radio show and I urge Loronix’s community to reach the radio website and listen to Jassvan show, broadcasted every Sunday at midnight.

The show must go on, and I would like to upgrade this really nice and inexplicable underrated album, a Bossa Nova classic recorded in 1976 by Stan Getz, featuring João Gilberto and with the participation of Miucha. Let’s see.

This is Stan Getz – The Best of Two Worlds, featuring Joao Gilberto (1976), for Columbia. There is something very unique about this album, which is the participation of Antonio Carlos Jobim. He wrote English lyrics to his compositions especially for this occasion. This cover is also a must and probably assembled by Columbia, since Joao Gilberto appears with the same photo with different situation in the front and back cover. This upgrade includes a new vinyl transfer with FLAC files, new cover scans and also personnel listing, with some nice surprises. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! I would like to make clear all the difficulties I have to make such music. My musical knowledge is very limited, especially when I leave the safe terrain of Brazilian music. I think I never have something to add on top of what you probably already know. As a matter of fact, Loronix slogan says “Music from Brazil”, which represents the music that comes from Brazil, even if it is presented by foreign artists and musicians.

This disc is an example. It has Brazil inside and was recorded by one of the best singers ever known. Definitely, it could not be out of our collection. It has only Brazilian musicians, including a special participation of Maestro Antonio Carlos Jobim. Let’s see.

This is Sarah Vaughan – O Som Brasileiro de Sarah Vaughan (1978), for RCA, featuring Sarah Vaughan renditions of well-known Brazilian classics written by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Milton Nascimento, Durval Ferreira, Marcos Valle, Dorival Caymmi, among others. I’m really impressed by the way Sarah Vaughan sings. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! While waiting for a Moacyr Silva album reissued in the CD format, I would like to reactivate and show an improved version of E Tempo de Samba, which is one of the first vinyl transfers I did to Loronix’s community. I will never understand why Moacyr Silva never had a career album reissued. The only way to listen to his music is from the old LPs or from music sharing blogs, such like Loronix. I heard many times that Moacyr Silva can be easily compared with acclaimed Jazz musicians and several friends said that went crazy when spinning his music for the first time. Anyway, this is an early Moacyr Silva album, recorded in 1963, the first he makes backed by an orchestra. Let’s see.

This is Moacyr Silva, Sua Orquestra e Coro – E Tempo de Samba (1963), for Copacabana, featuring Moacyr Silva tenor sax backed by orchestra conducted by Maestro Jose Pacheco Lins, also known as Maestro Pachequinho.

Hello, good evening! Since I read Ary Barroso’s entry at Musicos do Brasil | Uma Enciclopedia, I started looking for his albums. Ary Barroso is a very important artist. but his discography is not available at Loronix the way I think it should be, no career albums are available, only tribute albums and a collaboration with Dorival Caymmi. Ary Barroso piano is unique and his compositions are part of Brazilian music heritage. He is mentioned on 173 posts at Loronix, which demonstrate his compositions were recorded by many other artists. Let’s see.
CapaLPBack
This is Ernani Filho – Dois Amigos | As Musicas de Ary Barroso na Voz de Ernani Filho (1963), for Odeon, a tribute album recorded by Ary Barroso favorite interpreter, according with Ary Barroso liner notes available at the back cover. This is really interesting. Ernani Filho started his career in 1938, recording several 78RPMs and for reasons that I could not check, he retired early, probably, just before this album, which is the only one recorded in the 12′ format and the last Ernani Filho’s record. Personnel listing is not available and Ary Barroso participation needs confirmation.

This album is here as a gift of Mauricio Gouveia, the owner of one of the coolest vinyl shops in Rio de Janeiro, Baratos da Ribeiro, in the heart of Copacabana. I urge Loronix’s community to visit Mauricio’s store following this direction, here. Tracks include:

01 – Balada da Saudade (Ary Barroso)
02 – Tufão (Ary Barroso)
03 – No Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso / Lamartine Babo)
04 – Ocultei (Ary Barroso)
05 – Maria (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
06 – Risque (Ary Barroso)
07 – Pierrot (Ary Barroso)
08 – Cantiga de Enganar Tristeza (Ary Barroso / Thiago de Mello)

ClaudetteSoares-GilChicoVeloso

Hello, good evening! We made a small homage to the Brazilian diva Doris Monteiro a couple of days ago, and now it is time to celebrate another Diva, very connected with Bossa Nova keeping an active and productive career across decades. Claudette Soares. She started very early at 10 singing on radio shows, recording her first album, a 78rpm in 1954. Claudette Soares was also crooner of the legendary Hotel Plaza nightclub, a meeting point in the beginning of Bossa Nova years.

I’m taking a unique Claudette Soares release recorded in 1968, featuring arrangements by Maestro Rogerio Duprat and based on the repertoire of three young Brazilian composers at that time, Gilberto Gil, Chico Buarque and Caetano Veloso. Let’s see.

This is Claudette Soares – Gil-Chico-Veloso por Claudette Soares (1968), for Philips, with the not credited participation of Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, performing with Claudette Soares in 11 – Clara (Caetano Veloso) and 12 – Yemanja (Gilberto Gil / Othon Bastos). We have a short and really amazing record here and you can call it whatever you want to call since it has several influences, such like Bossa Nova, Samba, Tropicalia, MPB, etc. My searches were not successful when looking for additional information about this album, perhaps Gil-Chico-Veloso por Claudette Soares never had a chance to be issued in the CD format, which is something I would like to see one day. Personnel listing was not credited by Philips. Tracks include:

01 – Januária (Chico Buarque)
02 – Lia (Caetano Veloso / Gilberto Gil)
03 – Frevo Rasgado (Gilberto Gil / Bruno Ferreira)
04 – Desencontro (Chico Buarque)
05 – Deus Vos Salve Esta Casa Santa (Caetano Veloso / Torquato Neto)
06 – Mancada (Gilberto Gil)
07 – Bandolim (Chico Buarque)
08 – Remelexo (Caetano Veloso)
09 – Domingou (Gilberto Gil / Torquato Neto)
10 – Lua Cheia (Chico Buarque / Toquinho)
11 – Clara (Caetano Veloso) with GILBERTO GIL
12 – Yemanjá (Gilberto Gil / Othon Bastos) with GILBERTO GIL

Beth Carvalho - Beth Carvalho - Pandeiro E Viola (1975)

Hello, good evening! I’ve been receiving messages with compliments and suggestions on the new features implemented at Loronix during the last weeks. I would like to thank everyone who wrote and also thank the whole community for making available our dedicated server with donations last year. Without this dedicated Linux box, all these features would not be viable. I believe Loronix is the only blog to have a dedicated server, which is something that makes me feel really proud and confident in our future. I swear to prepare a message tomorrow to clarify what are these new features and how to get the most from their use. This is only the beginning and the work will be hard in the next months, but it is a very rewarding job.

Finally, part of this work is to visit again all old posts, which is something I do only in situations like this. I do not read download statistics, but they reveal some very interesting things, such as popularity of Beth Carvalho in our community. I believe this release would please many friends. Let’s see.

This is Beth Carvalho – Pandeiro e Viola (1975), for Tapecar, featuring arrangements and direction of the legendary Ed Lincoln, coordination a dream team of Brazilian musicians. Beth Carvalho dedicates this record to Nelson Cavaquinho and Guilherme de Brito. Tapecar releases in the mid 1970’s are always worth checking, especially if you like Samba. Personnel listing is also a pleasent reading as every album recorded in this decade. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! This is one of the most requested albums throughout the short Loronix existence, especially in the first six months. My hopes of having this album in our collection were minimal and I believe that everybody understood across time the situation would not easily change from one hour to another. However, there is a network of collaborators around us, able to make surprises at any time. One of the most amazing collaborators strikes again, AdHoc, directly from the European winter to the warm winds of Rio de Janeiro and here for all Marcos Valle’s fans around the world. Thanks a lot, AdHoc. Let’s see.

This is Marcos Valle – Marcos Valle (1970), for Odeon, featuring Marcos Valle and Paulo Sergio Valle compositions on an album that seems to be a transition from the 1960s Bossa Nova to the more pop oriented sound made by Marcos Valle in the beginning of the 1970s. AdHoc says the Brazilian group Som Imaginario is in this session, which is something we can easily realize by hearing track 09 – Suite Imaginaria (Marcos Valle). Track 06 – Esperando o Messias features The Golden Boys as special guest. Complete personnel listing is not available, but you can fill this time examining this fantastic front and back cover. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! Maysa Matarazzo TV Globo’s special continues dropping new friends at Loronix. Since the show started, we are receiving an average of additional 1,000 new visitors daily. It is a very interesting phenomenon. People watch TV and use the Internet to get additional information about Maysa. I think most of these new friends will visit Loronix regularly after the end of the show; they have something in common with us, the music from Brazil.

I have been receiving requests of new albums by Maysa, unfortunately, the ones I have are commercially available and I cannot make them. Anyway, Maysa is available at Loronix archives and you can use Find It! or the new widget — in your right at Loronix side bar — to reach them.

Good. The music today comes from the 1970’s decade, courtesy of a very important Brazilian artist that never had an album available at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Eduardo Gudin – Coracao Marginal (1978), for Continental, featuring the Brazilian singer and composer Eduardo Gudin performing his own compositions. Eduardo Gudin is active since 1968, at 16, invited by Elis Regina to perform at her O Fino da Bossa TV show. Since them, Eduardo Gudin compositions were recorded by renowned Brazilian artists such as Dick Farney, Paulinho da Viola, Elizeth Cardoso, Beth Carvalho, Clara Nunes and many others. Coracao Marginal brings Eduardo Gudin backed by that constellation of Brazilian musicians as every good album recorded in Brazil at the 1970’s. Maestro Jose Briamonte is in charge of arrangements and the session features legends like Milton Banana, Neco, Wilson das Neves, Dino 7 Cordas, Nelsinho and others. Personnel listing is available below. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! In the very first beginning of Loronix, Doris Monteiro was a real fever among friends discovering her music for the first time and also friends having the chance of hear her records again. Sombras says Doris Monteiro first record is a 78RPM released by Todamerica in 1951 and she remains in plenty activity, releasing albums and performing live. It is a great pleasure to bring Doris Monteiro back to Loronix first page. Let’s see.

This is Doris Monteiro – Agora (1976), for Odeon, featuring arrangements and conduction by the mighty Maestro Geraldo Vespar, another Brazilian music legend that I had the chance to meet with the help of Loronix. Doris and Maestro Geraldo Vespar are backed by a constellation of Brazilian musicians, including Sivuca, Copinha, Juarez, and many other well-known names that you can check at personnel listing below. This album is of a strange beauty and you cannot skip it. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! Loronix received many new visitors today. Everything started at 10p.m. when we had on a single hour more than 300 visits, above the 120 average of a Monday evening. I had a lot of work to identify the reason, what was driving new people to Loronix late at night. The answer came from the analysis of the referral logs; everybody was using Google, mainly Google Image Search to find pictures of Maysa Matarazzo. TV Globo started today a novel based at Maysa career, directed by Maysa son’s Jayme Monjardim. Immediately, I started digging my collection after an album recorded by Maysa, but I could not make it today. In the other hand, I found this one sleeping on a very hard to reach part of my wardrobe and it was very nice to hear it after three years, since it was made available in the middle of 2006. Let’s see.

This is Zimbo Trio – Zimbo (1976), for RGE, featuring the special guests Hector Costita and Heraldo do Monte. Even if you already have the first Loronix issue you should take this one in consideration. The cover has now a hi-res scan, including the back cover and the music has a new transfer, including the alternative FLAC files. My favorite track is the opening 01 – Fe Cega, Faca Amolada (Milton Nascimento / Ronaldo Bastos), but as a 19Mb track, I could not make it available at Loronix Preview Center. 04 – Vai de Aracaju (Rubens Barssotti) is available there and it is also a really nice choice. Tracks include:

Hi again! Two posts in a single day and both have connections. Although we have music, this is all about a movement among Brazilian filmmakers in the 1950’s and 1960’s known as Cinema Novo. This is the original soundtrack of probably the most famous film from Cinema Novo, featuring Sergio Ricardo and the acclaimed filmmaker Glauber Rocha. There is a very interesting statement about Cinema Novo, “Uma camera na mao e uma ideia na cabeca” (“a camera in the hand and an idea in the had”), which is an adequate description of the movement, which main topics included Brazilian poverty using the Northeast region as setting for the productions. Let’s see.

This is Sergio Ricardo e Glauber Rocha – Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol (1964), for Forma, with music by Sergio Ricardo and Glauber Rocha, production by Roberto Quartin and speeches by the actors Othon Bastos and Geraldo Del Rey. Glauber Rocha also wrote the back cover liner notes and he mentions the legendary Grande Otelo singing a Ze Ketti’s Samba Magoa de Sambista at Nelson Pereira dos Santos film “Rio Zona Norte” from 1957. I found it on the excellent Bossa Brasileira, also available below. Don’t miss this video and have a nice Sunday and a very good first 2009 week. Tracks include:

01 – Abertura (Sergio Ricardo / Glauber Rocha)

Hello, Happy New Year! I want to open this year with something different and also unique. It is not music, but poetry, written and spoken by one of the greatest Brazilian artists from the last century, Vinicius de Moraes. According with Sombras, this little EP was released in 1959; I could not find this information inspecting the cover, as well the record label. Anyway, this is one of the first albums recorded by Vinicius de Moraes as main performer. Let’s see.

This is Vinicius de Moraes – Vinicius de Moraes (1959), for Festa, featuring poetry written and spoken by Vinicius de Moraes. As a second warning, this is not music, but poetry in Portuguese language. I’m not versed on poetry, but these five tracks and Vinicius de Moraes interpretation of his work are delicious to hear. Tracks include, sorry, poems are:

01 – O Mergulhador (Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Soneto Nr. 2 – De Meditacao (Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Os Acrobatas (Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – A Hora Intima (Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – Receita de Mulher (Vinicius de Moraes)
