It has been two months since we made the last Choro album at Loronix. It is a lot of time, and to fulfill the needs of several friends, including Martoni, from The Netherlands, I would like to offer what is considered by many, the best Choro album recorded in Brazil. Actually, the first out of two legendary Choro albums recorded by Altamiro Carrilho and Regional do Canhoto titled “Choros Imortais”. Let’s see.

This is Altamiro Carrilho & Canhoto e Seu Regional – Choros Imortais (1964), for Copacabana, presented here by a SOM SOLP reissue, probably released in the late 60’s. I could not track any information about the release year. Altamiro Carrilho has several albums available at Loronix, but it is the first time an album with the participation of Canhoto is being released. Canhoto, born as Waldiro Frederico Tramontano, was an important Choro musician. He lead more than 40 years his Conjunto Regional, responsible for the first steps of several renowned musicians in the style, such like Dino 7 Cordas, Altamiro Carrilho, Meira, Orlando Silveira, Gilson de Freitas and after the departure of Altamiro Carrilho in the early 60’s, Carlos Poyares. This photo brings Canhoto e Seu Regional in the 50’s, taken from Acervo Sergio Prata and probably features the members of this recording session, not provided by Copacabana. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! I spent a couple of months until decide to show this album to Loronixers. This is a perfect blend between popular and classical music and one of my favorites in the style. The title is big such as the music we have inside. The only issue, a major issue by the way, is the front cover. I got this album on a really bad condition and the front cover was taken away, my apologies for this one, it is the best I could make as a replacement. If you have a high-quality scan or even a thumbnail of this cover, please tell us, it will be really appreciated. Let’s see.

This is Paulo Moura, Formiga, Altamirro Carilho e Abel Ferreira – Paulo Moura, Formiga, Altamirro Carilho e Abel Ferreira Interpretam Vivaldi, Webber, Purcell e Villa Lobos com a Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira sob a Regencia de Julio Medalha (1977), for Som Livre. This giant title explains almost everything, we have here Orquestra Sinfonica Brasileira conduced by Maestro Julio Medalha performing classical music, four tracks with each one having the participation of the four main performers. I think it will be very difficult to appear another album with a bigger title, almost a paragraph. Waltel Branco was also in this session playing alaude at Vivaldi track. I really recommend this beautiful album. Tracks include:

Personnel & Track List

Maestro Formiga
Fantasia para Trompete em Re e Orquestra

Abel Ferreira
Concertino para Clarinete e Orquestra

Altamiro Carrilho

Concerto para Flautim e Orquestra

Paulo Moura

Hello, good evening! It has been a very long time since we released an album by the Brazilian flutist virtuoso Altamiro Carrilho, an artist with a career that spans decades, since the late 30’s until today. Altamiro Carrilho is strongly associated with the Choro genre, but he recorded several other styles, including the one made available though this album, known as Musica de Banda, very similar to the recent albums released at Loronix recorded by military bands. Let’s see.

This is Altamiro Carrilho e Sua Bandinha – A Bordo do Vera Cruz (1960), for Copacabana, featuring a repertoire of Portuguese tunes performed as Musica de Banda. Vera Cruz is a Portuguese cruiser ship that made his first trip in 1952 and kept regular trips to Brazil during eight years. The front cover shows Altamiro Carrilho e Sua Bandinha inside Vera Cruz, which is also available at the picture on your left. I hope our very good friends from Portugal, which is country number 12 in terms of number of visits at Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – Marcha do Centenário (Raul Ferrão / Frederico Brito)
02 – Coimbra (Raul Ferrão / José Galhardo)
03 – Vira do Minho (Tavares Bello)
04 – Arraial de Santo Antônio (Julio Dantas / Frederico de Freitas)
05 – Bailinho da Madeira (Maximiano Gomes / Mário Teixeira)
06 – Tiroliroliro (José Augusto de Souza Pinto)
07 – Cantiga da Rua (A. Melo / J. Bastos)
08 – Rosinha dos Limões (Artur Ribeiro)
09 – Uma Casa Portuguesa (Artur Fonseca / Reinaldo Ferreira / Vasco de Matos Sequeira)
10 – Corridinho 1951 (José Gomes Figueiredo)
11 – Canção do Mar (Ferrer Trindade / Frederico Brito)
12 – Ó Rosa Arredonda a Saia (A. Lopes)


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças ao amigo Martoni, ele pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

As soon as Loronix and Jornal Musical post was released I received some emails of friends asking for Altamiro Carrilho. I made a recommendation to search at Loronix Find It and check for previous releases. They were not happy, crying out for a new release. I learn with Loronix how music fans are really focused on their passion. Anyway, let’s see Altamiro Carrilho on a different genre, bolero.

This is Altamiro Carrilho e Seu Conjunto de Solistas – Boleros em Desfile Nr. 2 (1959), for Copacabana. My apologies for do not have restoration skills to present a better cover image to Loronixers, this cover is so good that worth the whole album. Altamiro Carrilho leads a “Conjunto” and this record is dedicated to a genre that was very famous in Brazil until the 70’s, bolero. I was talking yesterday with Caetano about bolero, very famous in the past and just disappeared today. Caetano said that a party with no bolero tunes was certainly a bad party at that time, since bolero is for dancing, another tradition that we do not see so often. Tracks include:

01 – Hipócrita (Carlos Crespo)
02 – Quien Será (P. B. Ruiz)
03 – Cachito (Consuelo Velasquez)
04 – Que Murmuren (R. Fuentes / R. Cardenas)
05 – Aquellos Ojos Verdes (N. Menendez / A. Utrera)
06 – Frenesi (A. Dominguez)
07 – Perfume de Gardenia (R. Hernandez)
08 – Desamparada (Alfredo Gil)
09 – Camino Verde (Carmelo Larrea)
10 – Jamais Te Esquecerei (Antônio Rago / Juraci Rago)
11 – Nosotros (P. Junco Jr.)
12 – Donde Estará Mi Vida (A. Lopes / Q. Segovia / F. N. Caldera / I. R. Jimenez)

Publicado em: Friday, April 06, 2007 by zecalouro

O Loronix e o Jornal Musical se uniram em desafio que somente pode ser resolvido com a ajuda de nossa comunidade, a busca de uma capa de um dos discos mais raros do Brasil, Altamiro Carrilho – Altamiro Carrilho e Sua Flauta Azul (1957), Continental LPP 44, 10 polegadas. Nem o próprio Altamiro Carrilho tem esse disco, o que faz nossa missão ser das mais difíceis.

Essa busca não está começando agora, ela foi iniciada há alguns meses em colaboração com o blog International Restored LP, um grande amigo do Loronix que faço questão de dar meus parabéns ao IRLP por ter encontrado os fonogramas e disponibilizado para a nossa comunidade,aqui, dessa vez, sem o Rapidshare.

Entretanto, precisamos encontrar a capa e contracapa do disco e essa é a ajuda que estamos solicitando aos Loronixers. Faremos da seguinte forma, o primeiro que enviar uma cópia digitalizada em alta resolução da capa e contracapa do Flauta Azul, receberá do Jornal Musical este CD-ROM da figura que abre esse post, com a discografia dos LPs essenciais da Musica Brasileira, uma das mais completas discografias disponíveis na Internet. Loronix também estará oferecendo um prêmio, o LP Eliana Pittman & Trio 3D – Ao Vivo (1968), Copacabana CLP 11528, autografado pela Eliana Pittman.

Esse é nosso acordo, o primeiro email enviado para com o scan da capa e contracapa desse disco será o grande vencedor. Confiram as figuras para conhecer os prêmios.

Vamos falar um pouco mais sobre o Jornal Musical, ele faz parte do Instituto Memória Musical Brasileira (IMMUB), uma organização sem fins lucrativos, voltada para a pesquisa, preservação e divulgação da Musica Popular Brasileira. O Jornal Musical conta com um banco de dados voltado para a discografia completa da Musica Brasileira e projetos complementares.

Voce pode conhecer o Jornal Musical aqui ( e o IMMUB através desse link (
