I have no doubts that we have a wonderful closing to our 48 Hours of Tom Jobim at Loronix tribute. Thanks to Cesar Saldanha to make it available and for the continuous research on everything we need to know about this tape. Thanks Caetano Rodrigues that put his hands on the search to realize some important facts about this tape.

Thanks Loronixers for being here giving feedback on each release. I think we could accomplish together a truly significant tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim legacy, making available his works and the works of other artist that were also great admirers of Tom Jobim as we are. I’m tired, but honored for making it and proud of the support of everybody. Some materials were sent in the last minute using the send files icon that could not be made available timely for this homage, thanks also for this last minute support. Your contribution was saved and will be shared later. Let’s see what we have here.

This is Antonio Carlos Jobim and Frank Sinatra – SinatraJobim, The Lost Tape (1969), for Reprise Records. I’m not writing the truth, only assumptions gathered during the last days, since the great Cesar Saldanha sent this tape to us. What we could understand for this media, this is a tape for a sesion that would be released in 1969 as the second Antonio Carlos Jobim and Sinatra collaboration. For reasons that I can only write as assumption, Frank Sinatra did not like the outcome and the record company had to withdraw this music in the last minute. Some of these tracks were used on other records, specially the one known as Sinatra & Company (1971), for Reprise.

But there is an exception. Track 10 – Off-Key (Desafinado) was never released on any media, except this lost tape. That is what makes this an amazing release, a widely unknown Sinatra recording of a classic Antonio Carlos Jobim composition. The sequence of pictures is self-explanatory. If you agree, know more or have a different story to tell, that’s the idea, feel free to engage the discussion and collaborate.

Thanks once again for supporting 48 Hours of Tom Jobim at Loronix. I was almost forgetting to say, Tracks Include:

01 – Sabia
02 – Bonita
03 – Drinking Water (Agua de Beber)
04 – One Note Samba (Samba de Uma Nota So)
05 – Don’t Ever go Away (Por Causa de Voce)
06 – Someone to Light Up my Life
07 – Triste
08 – Wave
09 – This Happy Madness (Estrada Branca)

E aqui terminam as “48 Horas de Jobim” do Loronix. Espero que todos tenham aproveitado tanto quanto eu aproveitei!

Caetano knows the business, I felt in love by this record since the first hearing. This is one of the 7 albums recorded by Phil Woods in a five days period in Italy, 2001. When I read about it, thought that this record would be a minor working on Phil Woods career. As usual, another great mistake of mine. It is a masterpiece. It was record as a duo with another great and very underrated Brazilian artist, Irio de Paula.

This is Phil Woods & Irio de Paula – Encontro (on Jobim) (2001), for Philology (Italy). This album landmark the first time he has played clarinet exclusively throughout a session. If you want to know more, Phil Wood was not familiar with the works of the Brazilian guitarist Irio de Paula prior the first day of recording, which should be a single day of recording since Phil recorded 7 albums in 5 days. Great record, very hard to find, released in Italy on a very limited edition. And it is all about Antonio Carlos Jobim. Tracks include:

01 – Eu Sei que Vou te Amar
02 – Samba do Aviao
03 – O Grande Amor
04 – Corcovado
05 – A Felicidade
06 – Brigas Nunca Mais
07 – Retrato em Branco e Preto
08 – Ana Luisa
09 – Days of Wine and Rose
10 – Autumn Leaves

… and we’re back! I have been trying to understand this album title since the association of the couple and the title can lead you to understand that it is an album for lovers – people who are in love to each other – based on Antonio Carlos Jobim composition. Once again, I was wrong. Jobim for Lovers is Antonio Carlos Jobim for people who Loves Antonio Carlos Jobim. A rephrase is required; I would make it again as “Jobim for Jobim Lovers”. If you understand what I’m trying to say…

This is Vincent Herring – Jobim for Lovers (1999), for Music Masters Jazz, featuring the empeccably well played saxophone of Vincent Herring accompanied by a three Brazilian musicians, Duduka da Fonseca, Romero Lubambo and Nilson Matta. Thanks once again to Caetano Rodrigues. I never had the chance to know how Vincent Herring blows his sax and it was a great opportunity to make it from Antonio Carlos Jobim repertoire. The bossanovadreamer will also hit the ceiling with this record. Tracks include:


Nilson Matta

Gary Fischer

Duduka da Fonseca

Romero Lubambo

Vincent Herring
(sax alto, soprano and tenor)

Track List

01 – Brigas Nunca Mais
02 – Samba do Aviao
03 – O Grande Amore
04 – One Note Samba
05 – Eu Sei que Vou te Amar
06 – Este Seu Olhar
07 – Once I Loved
08 – Wave

This album was not planned on our Tom Jobim tribute, but I read the Mighty JimR saying that he did not have this one, so I fell the obligation of sharing with Loronix friends.

This is O Pequeno Principe (1958), for Fiesta, featuring compositions and arrangements by Antonio Carlos Jobim. O Pequeno Principe the Portuguese version of The Little Prince written by Saint-Exupéry. Just to tracks with speech in Portuguese and incidental music. I consider O Pequeno Principe an album for completionist, but Loronixers seems to be completionists by definition. No tracks this time.

It was wise of zecalouro to create a new streaming service to Loronix. Our 48 Hours of Tom Jobim is getting the benefits of this new feature. Now we can watch long length videos with no limitations. The only concern is the hosting service bill at the end of the month. If you want to help us to keep the streaming services up and running and the videos available permanently, please consider donate to Loronix. This is the end of my little personal message. Thanks.

This is Antonio Carlos Jobim at Canada Jazz Festival (1986), a live performance on a very good quality featuring 56 minutes of Jobim’s concert. This concert is all about happiness with Jobim at his peak. I’m not sure but probably this show features Banda Nova, one of Jobim bands that I like most. Anyway, there is a lot to be discussed about this video. Close the door, turn the lights out and stay with this awe Antonio Carlos Jobim Concert.

Hope uEnjoy!

An exceptional date needs and exceptional album. This singer is perhaps the most celebrated at Loronix and for every Bossa Nova enthusiast. Wise of Caetano for taking this tremendous album to our tribute. Big coincidence also, since I could have made this post earlier and the chance of making it on such special date would be lost. I’m happy about this.

This is Sylvia Telles – Sylvia Telles Sings the Wonderful Songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim (1965), for Kapp Records (USA), also released in Brazil by Elenco, MEV-65 as The Music of Mr. Jobim by Sylvia Telles. Sylvia sings in Portuguese and English a repertoire of Antonio Carlos Jobim compositions, produced by Aloysio de Oliveira with Arrangements of Maestro Lindolfo Gaya. I’m just a little bit disappointed of not have a movie of Sylvia Telles available, so I’m posting a nice picture of her that you will find with the music. The cover artwork is one of those things that only Caetano Rodrigues can show us. I want to say thanks to Caetano for the amazing support given to our 48 Hours with Jobim series.

Tracks include:

01 – Useless Lasdcape (Inútil Paisagem) (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira / Vrs. R. Gilbert)
02 – Dreamer (Vivo Sonhando) (Tom Jobim / Vrs. Lees)
03 – Samba Torto (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)

Eliane Elias – Eliane Elias Sings Jobim (1998)

Publicado em: Thursday, January 25, 2007 by zecalouro 

I would never forget this record, the Brazilian Jazz pianist based in New York Eliane Elias also made her tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim. Eliane Elias is an artist that makes the bridge between classical music and jazz, releasing albums for both styles. Eliane Elias inherited her musical talents from her mother Lucy, also pianist.

This is Eliane Elias – Eliane Elias Sings Jobim (1998), for Blue Note. In spite of her talent playing piano, Eliane Elias also sings all tracks on this album, not with the competence of her peers, such like Tania Maria, Flora Purim and others, but this is a nice tribute album to Antonio Carlos Jobim that should be not left apart on our celebration. Caetano likes a lot this album, released only in the United States and probably unknown to many Loronix friends outside US. Tracks include:


Paulinho Braga


Oscar Castro Neves
(guitar and producer)

Eliane Elias
(piano and vocals)

Michael Brecker
(sax tenor)

Marc Johnson

Track List

01 – Garota De Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
