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

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)

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)

ABRAF Pattapio Bio

Pattapio Silva was born in Itacoara, RJ, he was raised in Cataguases, MG, where he used to help his father in the barber shop and taught himself to play an 8-key flute. When he was about 15 he left town to join several bands. He toured with these bands and when he arrived in Rio de Janeiro he was already a famous composer of marches and polcas.

In Rio he attended the National Institute of Music as a pupil of Duque Estrada Meier, concluding the six-year program in only two years, practicing over ten hours a day.

Pattapio was one of the first Brazilian recording artists, working for the Odeon and “Casa Edson”. Many of his own compositions were edited and recorded by him, among them: Evocação, Margarida, Primeiro Amor, Oriental, Sonho, Idílio, Zinha, Amor Perdido.

In 1907 he went on a solo tour in the States of Minas, São Paulo, Paraná and Santa Catarina. It was in the city of Florianópolis (SC) that he contracted a serious illness and died just a few days later, aged 27.

Altamiro Carrilho, sua Flauta Magica e Grande Conjunto – Bossa Nova in Rio (1963)

Link original: Altamiro Carrilho, sua Flauta Magica e Grande Conjunto – Bossa Nova in Rio (1963)
Publicado em: Tuesday, August 15, 2006 by zecalouro

Altamiro Carrilho, Brazilian flutist, a live legend making a late debut at Loronix. Altamiro has more than 60 years of a professional career acclaimed by popular and classical renowned musicians in Brazil and all around the world.

Altamiro deserves a full bio provided by AMG that you must read after get in touch with the out of print 1963 solo LP Bossa Nova in Rio.

One of the most important choro flutists ever, Altamiro Carrilho put together a solid virtuosity and an ease for improvisation that in his 58 years as a professional artist (completed in 2001, having recorded over 110 albums) brought him the praise of both classical and popular renowned musicians, along with a consolidated popularity. His trademark was the insertion of excerpts of classical pieces into choro, and vice versa, as he did in the cadenza of the Concerto #2 in D Major KV 314 ahead of the Orquestra Sinfônica de Porto Alegre (1976). As an accompanist, he worked with Orlando Silva, Vicente Celestino, Elizeth Cardoso, Moreira da Silva, Francisco Alves, Sílvio Caldas, Caetano Veloso, and Chico Buarque, among many others. His maxixe “Rio Antigo” sold 960,000 copies in just six months back in 1956, bringing him national fame. Carrilho also presented the highly successful TV show Em Tempo de Música, and toured through many countries, having being praised as one of the world’s best soloists by conductor Boris Trisno. As a classical music soloist, he played lead on several orchestra pieces like Mozart’s Concert in G at the Teatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro (1972). His album Clássicos em Choro was awarded with the Villa-Lobos trophy as Best Instrumental Album, and his Clássicos em Choro No. 2 won the gold record. In 1993, he was awarded with the Prêmio Sharp as the Best Arranger of Instrumental Music for his work on the album Altamiro Carrilho — 50 Anos de Choro, and, in 1997, he won it again for the Best Instrumental Album, Flauta Maravilhosa.

Having four generations of musicians and conductors in his genealogical tree, becoming a flutist at age five was somewhat natural for Carrilho. Since he was nine, he had started working because of his father’s illness, but he continued to study music at night. At 11, he joined the Banda Lira de Arion playing the snare drum. When he was 16, he moved to Niterói (Rio de Janeiro) and became a regular at the radio shows presented by Dante Santoro and Benedito Lacerda. During that period, he won first place in Ary Barroso’s novice show. His improvisational skills soon brought him invitations to join the groups led by César Moreno, Canhoto, and Rogério Guimarães. He recorded for the first time in 1943, on a Moreira da Silva album. His first record as a solo artist was recorded six years later, with his choro “Flauteando na Chacrinha.” His own regional (small group) was formed in 1950 to work at the Rádio Guanabara. In May 1951, he joined the Regional do Canhoto, replacing Benedito Lacerda. Working at the Rádio Mayrink Veiga, the group accompanied the biggest stars of that period, like Orlando Silva, Vicente Celestino, Moreira da Silva, Francisco Alves, and Sílvio Caldas. In 1955, he formed the Bandinha de Altamiro Carrilho, and, in the next year, he achieved national success with his maxixe “Rio Antigo.” Through the TV Tupi show Em Tempo de Música, he and his Bandinha attracted large audience levels for two years. In 1957, he was replaced by Carlos Poyares at the Regional do Canhoto. From 1963 to 1969, he did several international tours through countries like Spain, Portugal, France, England (where he recorded programs for the BBC and NBC), Germany, Lebanon, Egypt, and the former U.S.S.R. (for a three-month season in which he was praised by the conductor Boris Trisno as one of the world’s greatest soloists). Carrilho continues to perform and record, and was decorated in 1998 by the President Fernando Henrique Cardoso for his services to the country.
