Clara Nunes - Alvorecer (1974)-FRONT
Here we go on another post update that I never could realize it was so necessary. If you were waiting for this one, you should thanks Jörn for giving the advice and make me understand that Alvorecer is very significant and a really solid listen. With only a few searches I found several experts recommending this album and I think it is really sad it has been out of print for a lot of time. This is really one of the best albums released by Clara Nunes. Let’s see.

This is Clara Nunes – Alvorecer (1974), for Odeon, featuring arrangements by Maestro Carlos Monteiro de Souza, Joao Donato, Helio Delmiro and Maestro Orlando Silveira with not credited musicians in the session. I’m deliving the transfer of Odeon original 1974 issue without the bonus tracks included with the latest CD reissue. Clara Nunes delivers a really good album with several songs that I could remember by heart from my little kid memories. Tracks include:

I want to say that 2008 has been a great year to Loronix. Since January, our community is growing on daily basis, and today something very interesting happened, it was the day Loronix received more visitors since the creation.

Growth is a very important piece of our strategy, makes our community viable and stronger. Thanks once again for this great start of 2008.

This is Clara Nunes – Clara Nunes (1971), for Odeon, a transitional album from the early Clara Nunes Bossa Nova years to the style where she definitively shines as one of the greatest Brazilian Samba interpreters ever. This self-titled album brings several well known Clara Nunes tunes and also landmarks the first out of several participations of Maestro Lindolpho Gaya as Musical Director. Maestros Orlando Silveira, Nelsinho, Lindolpho Gaya and Jose Roberto deliver arrangers on individual tracks; unfortunately, Odeon did not credit musicians. Tracks include:

I was saving this post for some of those Loronix Samba Saturday, but I think it will fit very nice today, such like an amulet to bring lucky and keep the Murphy Law away from my computers for a while. This album is truly beautiful, starting by the cover artwork, showing a painting of Clara Nunes made by Luiz Jasmin. Sometimes these covers are so great that I cannot resist showing the opposite side together with the front side. Let’s see.

This is Clara Nunes – Clara Nunes (1973), for Odeon, pretty unknown album, perhaps for being released between two great ones, Clara, Clarice, Clara (1972) and Alvorecer (1974). Clara Nunes had support of several Brazilian Maestros writing the arrangements, Laercio de Freitas, Carlos Monteiro de Souza, Helio Delmiro and Orlando Silveira. This is also the third album she made with direction of Lindolfo Gaya. We know everything about arrangers, but little about musicians, they are not credited and my searches did not give results. Tracks include:

01 – Tristeza Pe no Chao (Armando Fernandes “Mamao”) [4]
02 – Fala Viola (Eloir Silva / Francisco Inacio)
03 – Minha Festa (Nelson Cavaquinho / Guilherme de Brito) [1]
04 – Umas e Outras (Chico Buarque de Hollanda) [3]
05 – Arlequim de Bronze (Synval Silva [2]
06 – O Mais que Perfeito (Jards Macale / Vinicius de Moraes) [3]
07 – Quando Vim de Minas (Xango da Mangueira)
08 – Meu Cariri (Dilu Melo / Rosil Cavalcante) [1]
09 – Homenagem a Olinda, Recife e Pai Edu (Baracho)
10 – E Doce Morrer no Mar (Dorival Caymmi) [2]
11 – Amei Tanto (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – Valeu pelo Amor (Ivor Lancelotti) [2]

Clara Nunes – Clara Clarice Clara (1972)

Publicado em: Monday, July 09, 2007 by zecalouro

It has been almost a year since the last Clara Nunes album was made available at Loronix. Clara Nunes is the favorite of many Loronixers. We made a survey in the very first beginning of Loronix to point out the greatest Brazilian Diva ever and Elis Regina was the winner. My fault to do not include Clara Nunes as an option and I’m sure she would be in the top three if included.

This is Clara Nunes – Clara Clarice Clara (1972), for Odeon. Clara Nunes started her recording career in the late 60’s and these first ones are the albums available at Loronix. She started as a romantic singer, making a gradual change to Samba that came to a term with Clara, Clarice, Clara, her first album fully dedicated to the style. Later, Clara Nunes introduced Afro-Brazilian elements to her recordings, such as the use of lyrics based on religions such like Candomble and others. This album was found on MINT conditions and the vinyl was played for the first time this week, everything is fine here, from cover scans to the music. Tracks include:

01 – Sempre Mangueira (Nelson Cavaquinho / Geraldo Queiroz)
02 – Seca do Nordeste (Waldir de Oliveira / Gilberto Andrade)
03 – Alvorada no Morro (Carlos Cachaça / Cartola / Hermínio Bello de Carvalho)
04 – Tempo à Bessa (João Nogueira)
05 – Morena do Mar (Dorival Caymmi) Puxada da Rede do Xaréu (Maria Rosita Salgado Goes)
06 – Ilu Aye (Terra da Vida) (Cabana / Norival Reis)
07 – Opção (Gisa Nogueira)
08 – Anjo Moreno (Candeia)
09 – Tributo aos Orixás (Mauro Duarte / Ruben Tavares)
10 – Último Pau-de-arara (Venâncio / Corumba / José Guimarães) Vendedor de Caranguejo (Gordurinha)
11 – Clarice (Caetano Veloso / Capinan)

Publicado em: Monday, November 27, 2006 by zecalouro

I have a special admiration for all Brazilian Maestros we have at Loronix and Lyrio Panicali is among my favorites. This LP, recorded for US market, is probably unknown by many friends in Brazil, Lyrio Panicali and His Orchestra – Brazil, New Dimensions in Sound (1968), for United Artists, I cannot confirm right now if the record session was taken in Brazil or in the US. This one should not be confused with the fantastic Nova Dimensao, released in 1965 for Odeon.

This is not only an Orchestra album, there are voices and lyrics in some tracks, Clara Nunes at his pre-samba ages, recognized for her collaboration with Lyrio Panicali sings on tracks Insensatez and A Felicidade. Silvio Cesar also makes his contribution singing tracks Dindi and Apelo. The repertoire is based on Bossa Nova standards, another unique release provided by Caetano Rodrigues. Tracks include:

01 – Aranjuez, Mon Amour
02 – Upa Neguinho
03 – Insensatez – with Clara Nunes
04 – Carolina
05 – Tem Mais Samba
06 – Dindi – with Silvio Cesar
07 – Tristeza
08 – Apelo – with Silvio Cesar
09 – Roda
10 – Meditacao
11 – A Felicidade – with Clara Nunes
12 – Garota de Ipanema
