Hello, good evening! Today I want to start with another nice contribution sponsored by a great friend, the might AdHoc, that rocks! AdHoc has been of a great help during this week of IT crisis, for reasons that I don’t know, his user on my hosting company is the only not affected by the outage. Until further notice, AdHoc has the command, at least by his username. AdHoc says this cover is not good enough to Loronix. I say this cover is great! AdHoc seems to be a Photoshop Master on his Macintosh; his restorations are always impeccable, if PhotoShop exists on Mac platform. Anyway, this is another AdHoc contribution. Let’s see.

This is Clara Sverner & Paulo Moura – Interpretam Pixinguinha (1988), for Columbia, featuring the classical piano of Clara Sverner and the clarinet of Paulo Moura performing a repertoire 100% dedicated to Pixinguinha. This is third out of three albums released by Clara Sverner and Paulo Moura, always delivering a nice blend of classical and popular music. I was very anxious throughout the whole day and this album was a perfect relief, the fine Pixinguinha compositions is all about quietness and peace that we all need in our lives. Tracks include:

Hello, Good Evening! I was invited by Irinea Ribeiro to watch her concert tonight with Clarisse Grova. Irinea and Clarisse will be performing at Panorama, Rua Joao Lira, 95 / 19, 9pm. Irinea said this concert has a great influence of Loronix and the repertoire is based on the music she has the chance to hear again at Loronix. This is really great! Thanks Irinea.

Loronixers Cariocas, quem estiver sem programa, compareça, que estiver com um programa de índio, cancele e compareça também. É hoje as 21 horas no Panorama, Rua Joao Lira, 95 19 andar, Leblon.

I’m leaving, but Loronixers will stay in very good company. Since we start making Paulo Moura music more often, I received requests and recommendations to make available one of his albums in collaboration with the Brazilian pianist Clara Sverner. It was not that easy to find this one, perhaps the only one out of print. Let’s see.

This is Clara Sverner e Paulo Moura – Clara Sverner e Paulo Moura (1983), for Angel/EMI, featuring 6 classic compositions by Heitor Villa Lobos, Marlos Nobre, Radames Gnattali, Eduardo Souto, Jacques Ibert and Gilberto Mendes performed with Clara Sverner Piano and Paulo Moura sax. This is a great listening experience, this album shows that Paulo Moura is really a gifted sax player, trully beautiful. Tracks include:

01 – Fantasia em Si Bemol (Heitor Villa Lobos) Sax Soprano & Piano
02 – Desafio VIII op 31 nr. 8 (Marlos Nobre) Sax Alto & Piano
03 – Valsa Triste (Radames Gnattali) Sax Alto & Piano

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