Since I started Loronix I have been thinking about posting this album. Being open and honest, I decided on making it today in response of the feedback given to the last Arthur Moreira Lima release, the first at Loronix, a contribution by AdHoc, the contributor that really rocks. AdHoc contribution was the first album recorded by Arthur Moreira Lima, totally dedicated to Ernest Nazareth compositions. This time, Arthur delivers a completely different record, less formal and featuring compositions by popular Brazilian artists, such like: Paulo Moura, Laercio de Freitas, Elomar, Heraldo do Monte, among others. Let’s see.

This is Arthur Moreira Lima – Com Licenca… (1981), for Kuarup, a piano solo album recorded at Sala Cecilia Meirelles, Rio de Janeiro. According with the back cover, there was no audience and Sala Cecilia Meirelles was used by the acoustics. I would like to post a video, but my searches for a single one had failured. It is disappointing, when I was young, it was common to watch Arthur Moreira Lima performances on Brazilian TV and seems that nobody recorded a single one. Arthur Moreira Lima said that a musician called Mestre Horondino Silva has an important participation at Subindo ao Ceu giving hints on how make the “baixaria” (bass lines). Horondino Silva is also known as Dino 7 Cordas, a great Brazilian musician that never had a chance of recording a solo LP. Tracks include:

01 – Flor Amorosa (Joaquim Callado)
02 – La Brésilienne (Henrique Alves de Mesquita)
03 – Despertar da Montanha (Eduardo Souto)
04 – Fandangoso (Laércio de Freitas)
05 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha)
06 – Gaúcho (Chiquinha Gonzaga)
07 – Mão Esquerda (Paulo Moura)
08 – Subindo ao Céu (Aristides Borges)
09 – O Cabo Pitanga (Laércio de Freitas)
10 – Seresta Sertaneza (Elomar)
11 – Chuva Morna (Heraldo do Monte)

Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Eliane e Martoni, ele pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

Hello, good evening! A friend that left his nick with a nice comment sent this album. However, he did not leave and email and I don’t know if he wants to be identified with the alias he uses. He sent a really nice contribution, the third on the new FLAC format, featuring a very important artist that never had a chance to be introduced to our community, the Brazilian pianist Arthur Moreira Lima. Let’s see.

This is Arthur Moreira Lima – Arthur Moreira Lima Plays Tangos & Waltzes of Ernesto Nazareth (1982), for Intersound, recorded September 13-15, 1982, at the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters on the Steinway CD 372 piano. Thanks to the now revealed AdHoc for this info. Arthur Moreira Lima is worldwide acclaimed as one of the best Frederic Chopin interpreters, being also a successful popular music artist. It is hard to write this in English, Arthur Moreira Lima is the kind of guy that everybody would like to meet in the end of the day at Copacanana to drink some beers, a very cool character and also one of the most renowned tricolores (friends who support Fluminense Football Club, a soccer team in Rio de Janeiro).

His works in the field of popular music includes his association with Paulo Moura, Elomar, Heraldo do Monte, Conjunto Epoca de Ouro, Ney Matogrosso, Rafael Rabello and Ernesto Nazareth, which is a very popular Brazilian composed that had a profound influence on the course of Brazilian music, such like Heitor Villa Lobos. I urge Loronixers to send feedback on this anthological record where once again classical music meets popular music. Tracks include:

01 – Odeon (Ernesto Nazareth)
02 – Escorregando (Ernesto Nazareth)
03 – Duvidoso (Ernesto Nazareth)
04 – Eponina (Ernesto Nazareth)
05 – Batuque (Ernesto Nazareth)
06 – Fon-Fon (Ernesto Nazareth)
07 – Confidencias (Ernesto Nazareth)
08 – Famoso (Ernesto Nazareth)
09 – Mercedes (Ernesto Nazareth)
10 – Vem Ca, Branquinha (Ernesto Nazareth)
11 – Apanhei-te, Cavaquinho (Ernesto Nazareth)
12 – Brejeiro (Ernesto Nazareth)
13 – Bambino (Ernesto Nazareth)
14 – Sarambeque (Ernesto Nazareth)
15 – Carioca (Ernesto Nazareth)
