Hello, good evening! Very late start today at Loronix, perhaps it is the slow pace of another big weekend that is coming. Anyway, we are starting late, but starting great with another of those impossible to believe findings sponsored by zecalouro’s mother. Mom is really a great finder, actually, she understand the business and has a nice understanding of what really matters and what should be left behind. This is an album that I did not know, featuring a great artist that left us very early. Let’s see.

This is Almir Ribeiro – Uma Noite no Cave (1957), for Copacabana, in the 10-inch format. Almir Ribeiro was primarily a TV and Radio artist, making his option for the singer career very late on his short life. Almir would probably be one of the greatest Brazilian artists from the decades to come, but unfortunately his life was taken very early and tragically at the age of 22 in Uruguay, drowned at the beach.

Uma Noite no Cave is Almir Ribeiro debut LP, recorded with accompaniment of Conjunto do Cave, which is Cave nightclub support band in Sao Paulo, lead by Aloysio Figueiredo, also in charge of arrangements and musical direction. The back cover features liner notes written by Vinicius de Moraes saying that Almir Ribeiro would probably be one of the greatest Brazilian singers in the forthcoming years. Tracks include:
