Hello, good evening! I would like to share an album that has been requested by many friends since the beginning of Loronix, which is perhaps the first album recorded in Brazil following this concept of summarizing the main songs of an artist career with the help of special guests, a very common practice today. Everybody says this one has something special and I totally agree. The repertoire is great and the guests that Erasmo Carlos joined in this session are much more than regular special guests. Let’s see.

This is Erasmo Carlos – Convida (1980), for Polydor, Bringing twelve Erasmo Carlos compositions, most of them written in partnership with Roberto Carlos. Together, the duo forms one of the most successful composer partnerships of Brazilian popular music. Roberto Carlos opens the show and is followed by renowned artists, with some others that were in evidence only on that period; such like As Freneticas and A Cor do Som. This is a solid and really pleasant listen that has been out of print for many years. Tracks include:

THE SPECIAL GUESTS

A Cor do Som
As Freneticas
Caetano Veloso
Gal Costa
Gilberto Gil
Jorge Ben
Maria Bethania
Nara Leao

Roberto Carlos
Tim Maia

Hello, good evening! It is good to be back to Loronix after a long and unplanned break. The villain was that recurrent upload speed problem I now have on my new place. As I was really busy, I decided that a break would be appropriate to accelerate certain things here. Now it is time to resume Loronix. Fellows, I’m back and I’m back with some solid records in a row. Although unplugged, kept the habit of transferring old records, even as a kind of occupational therapy. Let’s see.

This is Moacyr Silva e Seu Conjunto – Sax Sensacional Nr. 5 (1964), for Copacabana, which is the last album recorded by Moacyr Silva on his successful “Sax Sensacional” series of five albums, and the fourth of the series at Loronix. I really enjoyed this fifth volume, which unfortunately did not bring credits for the Conjunto members that certainly brings Chaim Lewak at the piano, delivering great duels with Moacyr Silva tenor sax. Tracks include:

PS.: A few years ago I decided to get rid of TV sets, but I decided to install a TV at home this week. I am positively impressed with the musical programming, which now shows Marisa Gata Mansa and Carlos Lyra singing Bossa Nova together. Good.

Hello, good evening! As told, Walter Wanderley is among us and bringing Maestro Portinho, delivering a blend of organ and sax, really unusual. In case you missed something about these giants, Walter Wanderley was a legend, acknowledged as one of the best Brazilian organists. He also made a solid career in the United State, releasing several records. Walter Wanderley passed away in 1986, United States, almost forgotten to the masses. It is sad that nobody remembers who Walter Wanderley was. Make a test, ask about Walter Wanderley for your friends with less than 30. Only a few will be able to say.

Maestro Portinho, is also a well-know musician to Loronix community and one of my favorite maestros. According with Zarville – Loronix Official Orchestra Music Advisor – Portinho is the Brazilian Maestro who is the best on mixing Samba and orchestral arrangements. Portinho is also an instrumentalist, play sax and clarinet. He also recorded some Choro albums. If there is something in common between these two musicians, I believe it is their constant work in studios, they were very active. Let’s see.

This is Walter Wanderley e Portinho – Orgao, Sax e Sexy (1964), for Philips, released just after Entre Nos, the first Walter Wanderley album recorded for Philips, which is one that I like very much. This cover artwork explains the repertoire of romantic tunes. Personnel listing was not made available by Philips. I hope you Enjoy this really hard to find Walter Wanderley LP. Tracks include:

Back

01 – Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Castigo (Dolores Duran)
03 – Fale Baixinho (Portinho / Heitor Carillo)
04 – A Noite do Meu Bem (Dolores Duran)
05 – Por Causa de Você (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
06 – Meu Sonho É Você (Altamiro Carrilho / Átila Nunes)

Esse disco é dedicado a Roberta. Ela disse coisas que eu não sabia, mostrou revistas e riu (várias vezes) das minhas histórias. Isso faz a gente se sentir vivo. Valeu Roberta! zecalouro@gmail.com

PS.: Amanhã teremos Walter Wanderley no Loronix. Inédito. Não percam!

Hello, good evening! It has been a month or two since I felt in love again with this masterpiece. Maybe I heard this record more than a thousand times and it is amazing how it gets better and better after each spin. It is one of the most impressive records I ever heard in my whole life. I bringing it back to the first page just to please friends who never get tired of crying for an upgrade. If you miss this one, stop reading and get yourself ready for a really lovely album. I’m keeping my original writings, including a new transfer, hi-quality cover scans and some other minor improvements.

One of the most difficult things I face when introducing Bossa Nova to new friends is to explain why Joao Gilberto is considered a genius. I know how hard it is to understand Joao Gilberto as a whole. Luiz Harding has providing us with some “basics”, which is the second and third Joao Gilberto albums released in 1960 and 1961, recently made available at Loronix.

This MASTERPIECE was recorded ten years after these two releases (if you agree the albums recorded with Stan Getz for Verve are not Joao Gilberto solo LPs) and it seems that a century has passed; Joao Gilberto is at his peak, taking to studio only his violao and a reduced percussion set. Joao Gilberto renditions of these ten songs are such like heaven on earth; take this album as something very special that will be with you for the rest of your life. I love this album and I’m now with a blend of two contradictory feelings, the happiness of showing to my friends at Loronix and the disappointment of knowing that it is out of print again.

This is Joao Gilberto – Joao Gilberto (1973), for Polydor. This is one of best albums made available at this website ever and it is very hard for me to describe it. My apologies, I think is better stop here, take it and listen with your heart and with all the love you have for the music from Brazil. Tracks include:

João Gilberto - Back

Jacob do Bandolim – Os Saraus de Jacob (1971)

Hello, good evening! Today was the best day I had since Loronix Headquarters made the move to Jacarepaguá in March 2009. The reason for such a perfect day was simple; my internet link was down all day long, which enabled me to leave the house for some interesting musical missions around the neighborhood.

The first mission was a visit to the famous Retiro dos Artistas house and try to talk to its most famous guest at the moment, Mrs. Rosana Toledo. My idea was to take some of her albums with me and giver her as a gift. I read that she no longer have them. I could not talk with Rosana Toledo, but I could schedule something for a new opportunity. Perhaps I can take some pictures and gather a message to our community?

My second mission had this album in mind. I knew Jacob do Bandolim lived in Jacarepaguá and his place was a meeting point with plenty of music everytime. I walked the streets, I asked questions, I ran some risk by going to places that did not know, but unfortunately could not find the place.

Anyway, I hope this album can bring this information. It was recorded in the house of Jacob Bandolim and released a few years after his early death by Herminio Bello de Carvalho. Let’s see.

This is Jacob do Bandolim – Os Saraus de Jacob (1971), for RCA Camdem, featuring Jacob do Bandolim performing at his own place with Conjunto Epoca de Ouro with Paulo Tapajos as special guest on three tracks. Side A brings a recording taken in 16/Aug/1968, and side B two months later with Paulo Tapajos in 06/Nov/1968. Liner notes written by Herminio Bello de Carvalho bring detailed information about both sessions and the whole spirit of how these Saraus happened at Jacob do Bandolim’s place. Tracks include:

Avena de Castro e Primo – Som Ambiente Vol. 2 (1975)

Hello, good evening! Maybe I am wrong as usual, but I think this record will surprise many friends. I never heard about the existence of a second volume of the anthological Som Ambiente, recorded by Marcos Valle and Azymuth in 1972. And this is what both volumes have in common since the concept is totally different. Instead of not credited artists, this surprising duo has loud and clear credits, including lots of information available at the back cover (some of them very hard to believe) and the participation of Durval Ferreira on two tracks, which is also the producer director. Let’s see.

This is Avena de Castro & Joao Peixoto Primo – Avena e Primo | Som Ambiente Vol 2 (1975), featuring for the first time at Loronix the sitar player Avena de Castro and the well-known pianist and organist Primo. Avena’s sitar sounds like an electric guitar, different from the sound of sitar made popular by George Harrison and Ravi Shankar in the 1960’s, which was my expectation before taking Som Ambiente Vol 2 for a first spin. A few Google searches were enough to tell me that Avena de Castro started as a classical musician and later embraced popular music. He is also considered the first and only sitar player in Brazilian popular music. Tracks include:
