Hello, good evening! I’m confident that many friends will be surprised with this album, such like us. I’m saying us because my transfers are now different from the way it was. Now I have an audience, a small, but very influent audience. They try to influence my choices and also make recommendations for future releases by digging my collection. This album provoked a very interest reaction on my small board of advisors, as soon as the transfer ended, they requested another spin, which was an appropriate request, this record is really amazing, Tito Madi and the surprising Nelly Martins worked as a team delivering a beauty of an album that you cannot miss. Let’s see.


This is Nelly Martins & Tito Madi – Encontro no Sabado (1959), for Continental. The information available about Nelly Martins was very limited on my computer and something very strange happened when I started searching Google. The website which provided better details on Nelly Martins was Loronix, really. Nelly Martins appears on a very old challenge post accompanied by Lúcio Alves, Johnny Alf and and Tito Madi, available here or at the picture in your left.

Additionally, Loronix comment section told me that Nelly Martins was married with the mighty Maestro Radames Gnattali, which is also the arranger of Encontro no Sabado.

Nelly Martins did not leave many records, only some 78RPMs and two LPs, Encontro no Sabado (this album) and an amazing instrumental piano album recorded in duo with Radames Gnattali, Radames Gnattali & Nelly Martins – Piano Duo (1967). What a nice story. Nelly Gnattali is also a gifted pianist and today works on preserving the memory of Radames Gnattali. Part of her work is available at Radames Gnattali official website, here. And as a last minute information, I found a YouTube video with Nelly Martins singing and Radames Gnattali performing at the piano, here. I said this post is amazing! Tracks include:

01 – Encontro no Sábado (Tito Madi / Georges Henry)
02 – Se (Mário Albanese / Nagib Nader)
03 – Quero-te Assim (Tito Madi)
04 – Faz Tanto Tempo (Tito Madi)
05 – Por Que (Pedro Dellober)
06 – És Tu (Domicio Augusto / Milton Silva)
07 – Eu e Você (Tito Madi)
08 – Esquece-me (Gabriel Migliori / Hélio Prado)
09 – Olha-me Diga-me (Tito Madi)
10 – Palavras ao Vento (Sergio Malta)
11 – Que Coisa Louca (C’est Magnifique) (Cole Porter / Vrs. João de Barro)
12 – Tu e Eu (Altamiro Carrilho / Armando Nunes)

Este disco pode ser buscado no Flash Strap. O vídeo citado pelo Zeca não está mais disponível no Youtube, Em compensação encontrei outro vídeo em que Nelly Martins canta com Agnaldo Rayol a música “Luar de Paquetá”, no filme “Garota Enxuta” de 1959.

Hello, good evening! My Internet access stills very limited with extremely slow upload rates. I did not want to keep Loronix with no updates today and my solution was gathering a 10-inch album, which is not an issue since we have truly amazing albums to explore in the format. This one is a perfect example, this is the second LP released by Maestro Radames Gnattali at Continental. For reasons that I cannot understand Radames Gnattali name is not available at the front cover, just like the first one. It is necessary to read the back cover for this information. I would like to remember that covers and individual tracks are always available at the end my writings as individual downloads; the covers are available as direct download links with no Rapidshare. Let’s see.

This is Radames Gnattali – Joias Musicais do Brasil (1954), for Continental, featuring Radames Gnattali selections. arrangements and piano. A small and not credited band makes the accompaniement. All my searches on this album failured, which was the way I choose to retrieve credit information on the good musicians we have here, especially the guitar and accordion player. Tracks include:

01 – Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso / Lamartine Babo)
02 – Despertar da Montanha (Eduardo Souto)
03 – Casinha Pequenina (Tradicional)
04 – Luar de Paquetá (Hermes Fontes / Freire Júnior)
05 – Nuvens (Eduardo Souto)
06 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha / João de Barro)
07 – Guacyra (Hekel Tavares / Joracy Camargo)
08 – Linda Flor (Henrique Vogeler / Cândido Costa / Luiz Peixoto)

Hello, good evening! Today was one of those days that we don’t forget. I was the first out of bed, starting as planned walking outside and purchasing bread and butter for a breakfast that only exists in Brazil. Then, my 12-years old nephew taught me many interesting tricks in Photoshop, some of them of immediate application at Loronix. Later on, we decided to open and play with the inside parts of an old notebook that had his last moments of life with zeca, which destroyed everything with refinement of cruelty. We had lunch together, followed by some guitar playing. That was special for me; I could realize that even with the left hand without touching I could make it for a couple of hours. We had also a birthday cake celebrating my brother anniversary. An incredible day and a perfect closing with an album requested by many loronixers. Let’s see.

This is Sylvio Mazzucca e Sua Orquestra – Baile de Aniversario (1958), for Columbia, featuring renowned Brazilian musicians, some very hard to see on recordings, such like the sax of Jose Fereira Godinho Filho, the legendary Case, Eduardo “Lambari” Pecci from Quarteto Lambari and something that requires confirmation, Rubens Bassini using Rubens de Souza Soares, probably his real name. Maestro Sylvio Mazzucca plays the role of arranger, conductor and vibraphone player. Tracks include:


Sylvio Mazzucca
(arrangements. conduction, vibraphone)

Jose Ferreira Godinho Filho “Case”, Jose Ribamar Balby, Luis Suozzo, Eduardo “Lambari” Pecci, Mario Gomes Vieira
Gentil Contesini, Dorival Auriani, Francisco Dionizio
Orlando Bertozzi, Jose Cassetari, Edmundo Maciel
Luizinho Cangianiello
Armando Mazzucca
Jose Rezala “Turquinho”
Rubens de Souza Soares “Bassini”
Roberto Ditore
Rui Ditore

Track List

01 – Parabéns Pra Você (Happy Birthday To You) (Tradicional) – Feliz Aniversário (Alvarenga / Ranchinho) – Canção de Aniversário (Anniversary Song) (Ivanovici / Jolson / Charles Chaplin)
02 – Chá Cházinho (Sylvio Mazzuca) – With All My Heart (Marcucci / De Angelis) – Tequila (Chuck Rio)

Hello, good evening! I had an intense and very busy day this Friday. I got rid of a lot of paper without any remorse. I could also setup my new working environment and made the fist transfer at my new place.
As nothing is perfect, this new disc cannot be shown today. Blame it on my Internet connection, limited to a maximum of 30Kbps upload speed.

Meanwhile, I found an album requested by many Loronix friends featuring an instrumental combo from Minas Gerais state. I’m keeping my original text written in August 2006. Let’s see.

Hello, good evening! It is wonderful to be back to Loronix. Thank you for keeping the community and the website alive during my absence. I hope you had quality time here at Loronix and also with your families and friends.

My move is finished and I have much to say about it. Despite almost 10 days since the beginning of the process, writing these lines today is a miracle. I’m enjoying my new place, important for me to be immediately assisted in episodes of hypoglycemia and other boring stuff.

My family was just myself and zecalouro and now we are a true family of 3 adults (my brother and wife) and his two sons, my nephews. Exciting things happened. As soon as he heard about my arrival, my nephew decided to take guitar classes and now plays very well with a few lessons.

The adaptation of zecalouro, a major concern in our new home was instantaneous. He now has the company of other 7 birds and 5 dogs. I cannot remember zeca facing a dog before, and now his favorite sport is riding around the yard mounted on the back of a Labrador.

Loronix IT infrastructure of the Loronix is not yet mounted in the new home. The move took all my money and I need to save some cash to hire an Internet connection and then setup the new environment.

This will be my priority in the coming days. For now, I’m just making albums previously prepared or contributions from our great friends, such like this one, kindly provided by Mr. E., featuring an important musician who never had the chance to be here. Let’s see.

This is Gao – The Melodic Sound of Gao’s Piano (1966), for London, featuring The Ipanema Strings, which is something that I would like very much to know more. The Ipanema Strings are not new to Loronix, they are also backing Neco at Neco’s Guitar and The Ipanema Strings – Velvet Bossa Nova (1966), for the same London and released in the same 1966 year. My searches on The Ipanema Strings did not return consistent information. Perhaps someone can bring additional info on The Ipanema Strings at the comment section. Gao is a Brazilian maestro and pianist, active on recordings from the 1930’s until the late 1960’s, releasing several 78RPMs and a few albums in the “modern” 33RPM 12-inches LP format. Gao is a very old request made by several Loronix’s friends that I’m very pleased to address, thanks to Mr. E. and his always cute transfers. Tracks include:

01 – Murmurando (Mário Rossi / Fon-Fon)
02 – Curare (Bororó)
03 – Apanhei-te Cavaquinho (Ernesto Nazareth)
04 – Flor de Abacate (A. Sandin)
05 – Naquele Tempo (Pixinguinha / Benedito Lacerda)
06 – Da Cor do Pecado (Bororó)
07 – Ai Yoyo (Linda Flor) (Henrique Vogeler)
08 – Saudade (Lauro Miranda)
09 – André de Sapato Novo (André Victor Correia)
10 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha / João de Barro)
11 – Tenebroso (Ernesto Nazareth)
12 – Cabeludo (Gaó)

Dolores Viaja

Hello, good afternoon! I will try to make two updates today, but if I fail, this album starts an interval of some days with no updates. I will be taking care of my move, finally scheduled for tomorrow at 10:30 in the morning.

The change will be made by a specialized company that charges the total hours spent to accomplish the change. For this monitoring, I developed an application that sends from my mobile phone to Loronix dedicated server the GPS coordinates of where I am in intervals of 5 minutes. These coordinates are stored on a mysql database and using Google Maps API, these coordinates are plot in a map, making it possible to watch the move in real time, including the route made to the future place.

Anyway, I would like to send a big THANK YOU to Mr. E. for his understanding of my process and the great help he made putting his professional skills in place to transfer this really rare album to the digital format. Mr. E. is my benchmark on vinyl ripping and cover artwork restoration. The day Mr. E decided to open a music blog, his site will be the KING and the benchmark Loronix will follow. Thanks Mr. E. Let’s see.

This is Dolores Duran – Dolores Duran Viaja (1955), for Copacabana, in the 10-inch format, which is the first Dolores Duran LP. Mr. E. said he never had the chance to see this album before, so I’m confident to say this is a really rare release. Dolores Duran follows the concept of singing a repertoire with songs from several countries on different languages, which is something that she excels. Orquestra Copacabana backs Dolores Duran and the arrangements are in charge of Maestro Lindolpho Gaya and Mozart Brandao.

Dolores Duran Viaja has music from Chile, Canada, USA, Austria, Italy, Spain and Brazil, including the first recording of a song with lyrics in Esperanto, 05 – Nigraj Manteloj. Tracks include:

01 – Sinceridad (G. Perez)
02 – Ma Cabane Au Canada (C. Cohn / M. Brocey / L. Gasté)
03 – Kaiser Waltzer (J. Strauss)
04 – No Other Love (R. Rodgers / O. Hammerstein II)
05 – Nigraj Manteloj (Coimbra) (R. Ferrão / J. Galhardo / O. Baena)
06 – Vieni Sul Mar (Tradicional)
07 – Ojos Verdes (Valverde / León / Quiroga)
08 – Canção da Volta (Antônio Maria / Ismael Netto)


Este disco pode ser buscado no Um que Tenha. A versão lá disponível contém 5 faixas bônus, retiradas de discos 78 RPM:

09 – Que Bom Será (Paulo Marques / Salvador Micelli / Aylce Chaves)

10 – Já Não Interessa (Roberto Faissal / Domicio Costa)

I received an email from the owner of one of the coolest blogs I know, Toque Musical, which is now up and running on a new website, very similar to the previous one, but I recommend that you follow this link to make sure you will reach the right website, here: If you like Brazilian music and LPs, Toque Musical is mandatory.

TM (is that your name?) also said he made a long time ago Vitrine Odeon, and kindly sent to Loronix the scan of the original cover. Thanks TM for your great sharing spirit.

Good, the pieces are getting together, and now we need only Clovis Pereira – Ritmos Aluciantes and Elizeth Cardoso – Cancao de Amor audios. I want to thank TM for this update and also remind you again to reach his website at

Hello, good evening! Everything went wrong today and this is the reason why three covers are available. Perhaps it is the anticipated effect of the move, scheduled for Tuesday, next week, or perhaps just a coincidence. I had an amazing plan. I started with Elizeth Cardoso – Cancao de Amor (1957), a compilation released by Todamerica featuring Elizeth Cardoso phonograms taken from old 78rpm records. I heard it from the start until the end and liked a lot; the repertoire is awesome and features several Brazilian popular music standards.

Unfortunately, the output I got when transferring was really bad, several scratches and a strange background noise. I had to decline. If someone has this album and sharing spirit, please write me using the comment section or my email.

Recovered from Elizeth Cardoso’s trauma, all my attention was turned to another target, a sough after album by Loronix community and LP collectors worldwide, which is Clovis Pereira Ritmos Alucinantes (1957), for the obscure label Repertorio. This is album brings the first Hermeto Pascoal recording as an instrumentalist.

However, I had another problem, the record inside was not Clovis Pereira, but a compilation released by Odeon featuring Aloysio de Oliveira telling the story of high fidelity on side B and various artists on side A. Almost losing my forces, I decided to make it and tell you this long story. Let’s see.

This is Varios Artistas – Vitrine Odeon (no date), for Odeon, featuring Aloysio de Olivera e O Bando da Lua, Maestro Leo Peracchi, Fon-Fon e Sua Orquestra, Mario Reis, Francisco Alves, Steve Bernard e Seu Conjunto and the first track I had the chance to hear with Conjunto Brasil Sonoro, featuring Altamiro Carrilho (flute), Carlos Matos (violao), Chaim Lewak (piano), Agostinho Silva (organ), Norato (trombone), Chiquinho do Acordeom (acordion), Hans (oboe), Jayme Araujo (alto sax), Formiga (piston) e Netinho (clarinet), a constellation of Brazilian musicians.

Publicado em: Wednesday, March 04, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! It was difficult to decide for an album to be at the first page of Loronix today. All options were very good, solid, but this choice — and perhaps the next ones — is very important. I’m moving from my place to another. I’m leaving this apartment, the place I love and the place I’m living since the beginning of Loronix. The date of my move is still uncertain and can happen at any time. Thus, from now on, all albums at the first page should be very meaningful because Loronix will enter on a hiatus of five or more days until I get set on my new place and ready to continue. So, friends, if Loronix is not updated in the forthcoming days, this is the reason, I will be unplugged and in the middle of a very worrying process for anyone who collect LPs. Let’s see.

This is Fafa Lemos – Para Ouvir Dancando (1957), for RCA Victor, featuring Fafa Lemos, a legendary Brazilian musician, member of the anthological Trio Surdina with Anibal Augusto Sardinha – Garoto – and Chiquinho do Acordeon. Fafa Lemos LPs are always delicious to hear, and I like this one very much. Fafa Lemos plays violin and delivers his “bossa nova” singing on four tracks. Fafa Lemos is backed by a “conjunto” and the musicians were not credited by RCA Victor. Don’t let the “Para Dancar” title cheats you, it is just a marketing approach. Tracks include:

01 – Meu Guarda-chuva (Ubenor Santos / Amâncio de Morais) Fafa Lemos sings
02 – Granfino (Fafá Lemos)
03 – Meu Panamá (Alcebíades Nogueira) Fafa Lemos sings
04 – Rosita (A. Stuart / P. Dupont)
05 – Canarinho Feliz (Hot Canari) (P. Nero)
06 – Joãozinho Boa Pinta (Haroldo Lobo / Geraldo Jacques) Fafa Lemos sings
07 – Cigano no Baião (Garoto)
08 – Se Alguém Disser (Ismael Netto / Reinaldo Dias Leme) Fafa Lemos sings

Publicado em: Tuesday, March 03, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! A friend of mine, very connected to Brazilian music scene, with access to virtually all artists, said the only artist that left nervous and anxious when contacting was Chico Buarque. He said this thing a couple of years ago and I did not understand why by that time. Today, with Loronix, this statement came to my mind and his anguish is now clear. Chico Buarque is one of the greatest Brazilian artists in activity, able to move successfully between different artistic manifestations, including the challenging terrain of literature. Above all, Chico Buarque is an artist with respect to his own beliefs, a very intelligent man. His work was long available commercially through the release of all his discography in a box set. This is the reason his music is not represented here like other artists. I am very happy to make this album, the third out three Chico Buarque initial releases for RGE, considered by many his best releases. Let’s see.

This is Chico Buarque de Hollanda – Volume 3 (1968), for RGE, featuring orchestra and arrangements by Maestro Lindolpho Gaya and important participations of Toquinho, MPB-4 and recording debut of Chico Buarque sister, Cristina Buarque. Volume 3 features several well-known Chico Buarque compositions, including Retrato em Branco e Preto (Chico Buarque / Antonio Carlos Jobim), Roda Viva (Chico Buarque), Funeral de um Lavrador (Chico Buarque / Joao Cabral de Melo Neto) and my favorite Carolina (Chico Buarque). Sadly, musicians were not credited by RGE. Tracks include:

01 – Ela Desatinou (Chico Buarque)
02 – Retrato Em Branco e Preto (Tom Jobim / Chico Buarque)
03 – Januária (Chico Buarque)
04 – Desencontro (Chico Buarque) with TOQUINHO
05 – Carolina (Chico Buarque)
06 – Roda Viva (Chico Buarque) with MPB-4
07 – O Velho (Chico Buarque)
08 – Até Pensei (Chico Buarque)
09 – Sem Fantasia (Chico Buarque) with CRISTINA BUARQUE
10 – Até Segunda-feira (Chico Buarque)
11 – Funeral de Um Lavrador (Chico Buarque / João Cabral de Melo Neto)
12 – Tema Para ”Morte e Vida Severina” (Chico Buarque)

Publicado em: Saturday, February 28, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello! This is another surprising chapter of Historia da MPB collection by Abril Cultural. Actually, this is from 1977 Nova Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira, a second and revised edition of the original and first issued in the very beginning of the 1970’s. I always thought how would be the chapter dedicated to Antonio Carlos Jobim and it is better than my expectations. This cover, with a very unusual picture of Jobim and the back cover with the Maestro playing flute lying on the roof with the city around justified the wait. I always heard all issues from this collection were easy to find, but I think this is an exception. Let’s see.

This is Antonio Carlos Jobim – Nova Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira (1977), for Abril Cultural, featuring highlights of Jobim repertoire performed by Antonio Carlos Jobim and others, such like Joao Gilberto, Astrud Gilberto, Stan Getz, Agostinho dos Santos, Dick Farney, Lucio Alves, Sylvia Telles and Elis Regina. This is a great album for those who want to know Jobim music at a glance. There are some important tracks here, such like 02 – Chega de Saudade and 03 – Desafinado, taken from Joao Gilberto debut LP recorded in 1958, featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim with orchestra. This series is really addictive and probably we will have a sequel in the forthcoming weeks. Tracks include:

Hello! Yesterday, more like a kind of therapy than anything else in this crazy 2009, I made a script that addresses a very old request of Loronix community. It is already available and you probably have seen it. Now we have an option to download individual tracks from a disc, instead of the whole album on a huge zip ball. It is always available as “Individual Tracks” on post closing information (if the size is set to 0,00Mb, don’t worry, the robot will fix it). It is an amazing feature, which is gradually being materialized by a robot that works 24hours a day with no complaints. It is beautiful; he is taking files from Rapidshare, opening on our dedicated server, reading its contents, recording all the information on a database and sending everything back to Rapidshare as single tracks.

Some very interesting numbers were collected so far. From a total of 1894 albums available, the robot has finished with 599, making available 5836 tracks for individual hearing. I believe that in the end of the process we will have 20,000 tracks available. These numbers are crazy and they open possibilities for several innovations in the near future. Additionally, images are also being addressed and so far we have 1350 images available. I’m impressed with these figures. If you have any idea to make use and maximize this work, please drop me a line.

I’m talking today. Perhaps Nara Leao is giving a chance. Nara Leao is the most representative Bossa Nova singer and everybody loves her. Let’s see.

This is Nara Leao – Com Acucar e Com Afeto (1980), for Philips, featuring Chico Buarque compositions and Chico Buarque participation as special guest on three tracks. It is a common mistake to take this one as another Nara Leao release, with the same title and different cover, a commercially available compilation. Nara’s tribute to Chico Buarque is produced and arranged by Octavio Burnier and features a constellation of Brazilian musicians. Tracks include:


Octavio Burnier Bonfa
(guitar, arrangements)
Eneas Costa, Paulinho Braga
Jamil Joanes, Luizao Maia
Jose Roberto Bertrami, Marcos Resende
Celso Woltzenlogel, Jorginho da Flauta
Cesar Sampaio, Claudio Cartier, Octavio Burnier Bonfa, Sonia Burnier
Antonio Adolfo

Track List

01 – A Rita (Chico Buarque)
02 – Onde É Que Você Estava (Chico Buarque)
03 – Ela Desatinou (Chico Buarque)
04 – Trocando Em Miúdos (Chico Buarque / Francis Hime)
05 – O Que Será (À Flor da Pele) (Chico Buarque)

Hello, good evening! Yesterday, we had tribute and today this amazing contribution by JIN, Jose Ignacio Neto, which is another Brazilian music hero in cyberspace. In case you don’t know who, JIN belongs to the third generation of the Ignacio’s family, a family devoted to Brazilian music. His grandfather, the legendary Jose Ignacio, was the man behind the anthological “A Volta” podcast. JIN delivers a contribution that I’m sure you never had the chance to hear before, an unissued session featuring Luiz Carlos Vinhas and Emilio Santiago, recorded live in 1974 by Bill Horn. I will leave now as the show will be hosted by JIN from now one with his own knowledgeable words. JIN, my apologies for taking a long time to make this one. Let’s see.

Jose Ignacio Neto says: “One of the key figures amongst global collectors of funky Brazilian bossa over the last 20 years was undoubtedly the leader and pianist Luiz Carlos Vinhas.

A charismatic figure and stalwart of the Rio nightclub scene until his early death a few short years ago, Vinhas sometimes straddled the line between fantastic good taste and total ‘cafonice’ to use a word from back in the day. An instinctive pianist, I remember seeing him playing in 2000 at the Vinicius Piano Bar in Rio, on a crappy keyboard and being amazed as I watched his small chubby fingers seemingly bounce around the keyboard in the manner of someone pretending to be able to play the piano, and yet out came incredible sounds full of swing and rhythm!

For many, the CBS album from 1968 (produced by Helcio Milito from Tamba Trio) simply called L.C.V – O Som Psicedelico was his best work. A frenetic mixture of pop tunes, bossa, afro cuban funk – and the Chattanooga Choo Choo! His seminal composition on this album Ye-Me-Le is known to millions via the Sergio Mendes version.

After that LP he didn’t record much and the 1973 album ‘No Flog’ on EMI Odeon was a bit of a disappointment – just pot pourris with added cheers and clinking whisky glasses.

But imagine if there was a long lost recording with music on a level with O Som Psicodelico? And imagine if that recording also marked one of the earliest recordings of super soul singer Emilio Santiago?

Back in 1974 trumpeter and studio owner Bill Horne (known to Loronix fans from his many appearances in the ‘Guess Who’ photo competitions) recorded this session with Vinhas backing Santiago.

For many years the tapes languished on a dusty shelf in Leblon, but some years ago my grandfather Jose Ignacio was given a copy, un-mastered and straight from the tapes but so fantastic that it deserves to see the light of day for all dedicated Vinhas and Emilio fans.

The musicians’ names are long forgotten (but some Loronix fans please tell us if it’s you playing!) but are ‘feras’ in their own right.

And if this super rare session wasn’t enough, I’ve included a demo recording of Emilio Santiago that I believe was used to get his recording contract with Durval Ferreira at CID in 1975. Edson Frederico is the pianist here, drummer was probably Ronie Mesquita.

As Zeca would have said back then, Valeu, Bicho!”

exclusivamente brasil (1980) front

Hello, good evening! This is an unscheduled post. Sarah Vaughan was recently released a couple of days ago and I was waiting for a few weeks before taking this one in consideration. However, every road leads to Sarah Vaughan today. My mother came here today and showed great curiosity to hear the last, O Som Brasileiro de Sarah Vaughan. Everybody knows my mother is a great fan of Brazilian divas of the last century, but such like me; she has a very limited knowledge of international singers. I decided to take O Som de Sarah Vaughan for a spin and she got really amazed, deciding to stay additional hours until this one gets finished.

It was one of those perfect days. My mother took her way home hearing this album, naturally, my best choice for tonight. Let’s see.

This is Sarah Vaughan – Exclusivamente Brasil (1980), for Philips, featuring the guitar of Helio Delmiro, a gifted musician that I never had the chance to make before at Loronix. Helio Delmiro has a really special participation here, which includes his picture at the front cover and a whole track, 04 – Vivo Sonhando (Dreamer) (Antonio Carlos Jobim). Personnel listing was credited by Philips and features Aloysio de Oliveira as producer with arrangements by Maestro Edson Frederico. Tracks include:

Donga – A Musica de Donga (1974)

Hello, good evening! Carnaval has just started in Brazil. We have a big weekend ahead, a 5-day long holiday. Everyone that has the opportunity to travel, do so, leaving their homes today and returning only on the night of Wednesday. I’ll be in Rio de Janeiro, as I use to do. Carnival makes Rio a quiet and empty city, believe it or not. I will follow the example of most music blogs friends of Loronix, showing something with Carnaval flavor. Let’s see.


This is Donga – A Musica de Donga (1974), for the legendary label Marcus Pereira. By definition, this is not a Carnaval album, but a very important document featuring Donga, a musician who is part of Brazilian popular music history. Donga is credited to be the first to record a Samba tune in the year of 1916, a very important song that we know in Brazil by heart, Pelo Telefone, which is the track 10 of this album. Anyway, the whole album is delicious to hear with renowned musicians performing Donga compositions, including Elizeth Cardoso, Almirante, Paulo Tapajos, Dino, Meyra, Altamiro Carrilho, Canhoto and many others.

In a couple of hours I will be updating Loronix with a new interface. If you are reading this text with the interface already updated, I really hope you like it. This new look has many new features that should be implemented in the forthcoming days. It is also faster than the previous one. That’s all friends. I hope you have a nice Carnaval party with your families. Tracks include:

Lucio Alves – Balancamba (1963)

Link original: Lucio Alves – Balancamba (1963)
Publicado em: Wednesday, February 18, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I was looking for something at this weekend when by coincidence, I found this album labeled “This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer.” I believe that Balancamba was the last Lucio Alves album commercially available. This is sad. We know these reissues are forged by the hard work of people who Love Brazilian music as we do. I’m speaking specifically about Caetano Rodrigues and Charles Gavin, two great friends of our community, to whom I dedicate this record, which will continue his public career — on very modest basis by the way — here at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Lucio Alves – Balancamba (1963) for Elenco as ME-2, the second album released by the anthological and very important Brazilian label. Balancamba blends the words “balanco” and “samba” and makes justice to this title. Lucio Alves’s unique voice and sophisticated timing delivers a repertoire with compositions by Ronaldo Boscoli and Roberto Menescal, which is also here (probably with a Conjunto…). I was wondering about the duo excitement when working with the great master in a whole record… And to close the golden pot, Maestro Carlos Monteiro de Souza takes care of arrangements and conduction. I think it is time to stop. Lucio Alves does not need to be introduced. Tracks include:

01 – Balançamba
02 – Rio
03 – Tetê
04 – Dan-cha-cha-cha
05 – Branca Paz
06 – Negro
07 – Ah Seu Eu Pudesse
08 – Nós e o Mar
09 – O Barquinho
10 – Além da Imaginação
11 – Errinho à Toa
12 – Lágrima Primeira

(*) all tunes by Roberto Menescal and Ronaldo Boscoli.

Hello, good evening! I am very proud to be in charge of the technology side of Musicos do Brasil: Uma Enciclopedia Instrumental, the first Brazilian music Encyclopedia devoted to instrumental music. The website was recently updated with new features and left the Beta stage. When I have an album to share with the community, the Encyclopedia is very useful, being a solid reference source. Follow this link to reach Paulinho Nogueira’s entry and read about this great master of Brazilian guitar.

The Encyclopedia says that Paulinho Nogueira was more active as a teacher than as a studio musician. I also learned that Paulinho Nogueira was a designer, an essential skill to forge his invention, the craviola, an instrument that was adopted by Luiz Bonfa on his anthological Jacaranda album. Anyway, it is better leave the discovery pleasure for you; in the meantime, Loronix delivers another great Paulinho Nogueira record never released in CD. Let’s see.

This is Paulinho Nogueira – Sambas e Marchas da Nova Geracao (1967), for RGE, with the participation of Luiz Loy Quinteto and Os 3 Moraes. Sorry, for talking about different things at this post, but I just received from our friend Warren a YouTube video that really worth to be shared with you. It is about a guy that made a not authorized commercial movie about a store using a mobile phone camera, here. You will understand why it is so great when you take a look. Anyway, Paulinho Nogueira has the accompaniment of not credit musicians, singing on a few tracks. Track 01 – Roda (Gilberto Gil / Joao Augusto) a perfect example of one of Paulinho Nogueira’s strengths, which is the way he creates a completely different version of well-known compositions of other musicians. Tracks include:

01 – Roda (Gilberto Gil / João Augusto)
02 – Menina da Agulha (Sidney Miller)
03 – O Que a Gente Quer (Paulinho Nogueira)
04 – João e Maria (Hilton Accioli / Geraldo Vandré)
05 – Sem Mais Adeus (Francis Hime / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – Quem Te Viu Quem Te Vê (Chico Buarque)
07 – Para Contribuir à Confusão Geral (Paulinho Nogueira)
08 – Canção de Não Cantar (Sergio Bittencourt)
09 – Noite dos Mascarados (Chico Buarque)
10 – Procissão (Gilberto Gil)
11 – Benza Deus (Paulinho Nogueira)
12 – Máscara Negra (Zé Keti / Pereira Matos)

Hello, good evening! Yet another tiny record from Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira collection made available at Loronix, once again, another really worth checking release. For those who do not know this collection, Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira was published in 48 issues by Editora Abril Cultural between the years 1970 and 1972. Each issue includes a magazine with the size of a 10″ record and a 10″ record with a summary of the featured artist. It is perfect if you want get along with an artist on a single hearing. Let’s see.

This is Johnny Alf – Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira – 43 (1972), for Abril Cultural, featuring the Bossa Nova giant Johnny Alf performing his compositions and other artists performing Johnny Alf music. I said the collection is great, but the thing I like most is the magazine featuring pictures that are not easy to find, such as the one I’m making available below.


I don’t have muscles to transfer the magazine to digital format. My apologies. Perhaps one day I can have someone else working at Loronix. Tracks include:

Publicado em: Thursday, February 12, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! Here we have an album that does not need to be explained in details. Tamba Trio was one of the nicest vocal / instrumental Bossa Nova combos from the 1960’s and it is very hard to find someone that doesn’t have good feelings about these guys. This album was released in the middle of two classic and well-known Tamba Trio records, which is Tamba Trio – Tempo (1964) and Tamba 4 – We and the Sea (1967), for A&M records in the US. Thanks Jorge Mello for another nice contribution. Let’s see.

This is Tamba Trio – Tamba Trio (1966), for Philips, featuring Luiz Eca, Bebeto, Ohana and the participation of Orquestra Sinfonica do Teatro Municipal. I have been digging Google’s results for additional information about this album, but my searches were unsuccessful. I cannot explain why this album is a missing piece even in some important discographies. Anyway, there is a bad thing about this post. I forgot to transfer and include the back cover at the zl ball, which is a very important back cover written by Edu Lobo with detailed information about Tamba Trio and the new composers Caetano Veloso (05 – Quem me Dera, 11 – No Carnaval), Gilberto Gil (03 – Iemanja, 07 – Procissao) and Francis Hime (02 – Minha, 06 – Sem Mais Adeus). The back cover update will come tomorrow night. Stay tuned! Tracks include:


Luiz Eca

(bass, flute)

Track list

02 – Minha (Francis Hime / Ruy Guerra)

05 – Quem Me Dera (Caetano Veloso)
06 – Sem Mais Adeus (Francis Hime / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – Procissão (Gilberto Gil)
08 – Imagem (Luis Eça / Aloysio de Oliveira)
