Ed Maciel - Na Onda Vol. 3

Hello, good evening! Here we go with the third volume of this long series of eleven albums called “Na Onda” recorded by this unique Brazilian musician, the trombonist, conductor, arranger and composer Ed Maciel, requested by many Loronix’s friends. Na Onda is a rather curious series. The value proposition is based on popular music and popular albums. However, these albums are really hard to find. It is not a matter of commercial failure since the series would never reach eleven albums. Let’s see.

This is Ed Maciel e Sua Orquestra – Na Onda Volume 3 (1967), for London, the third out of eleven albums recorded by Ed Maciel and his orchestra, mainly music for dance, very similar to the albums released by Maestro Erlon Chaves’ Banda Veneno Internacional on those nice years. Ed Maciel made a large contribution to Brazilian instrumental music, but little is available about him, except his entry at Enciclopedia Instrumental Brasileira, available through this link. Tracks include:

01 – Namoradinha de Um Amigo Meu (Roberto Carlos)
02 – Winchester Cathedral (G. Stephens)
03 – See You In September (S. Wayne / S. Edwards)
04 – Gatinha Manhosa (Erasmo Carlos / Roberto Carlos)
05 – Tijuana Taxi (B. Coleman)
06 – Meu Limão Meu Limoeiro (Tradicional)
07 – Cheveux Longs Idées Courtes (J. Halliday / G. Thibaut)
08 – La Poupée Qui Fait Non (M. Polnareff / F. Gérard)
09 – I’ve Got You Under My Skin (Cole Porter)
10 – Trini’s Tune (T. Lopez / L. Kusik)
11 – Black Is Black (M. Grainger / S. Wadey / T. Hayes / Adpt. G. Aber)
12 – Got To Get You Into My Life (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)

Ed Maciel - Volume 5

Hello, good evening! Since Monday, Loronix has a new back-end application that counts with a very cool feature. This new tool gathers information about the search terms typed at Google that generates a referral to Loronix, providing nice reports about the most common search terms divided by country, continent and even cities.

This is a really important tool. Now I can create reports ranking the most common search terms, really nice to understand what people are looking for. I’m proud that the terms “Loronix” and “zeca louro” are on top of the ranking, followed by renowned artists such like Antonio Carlos Jobim and Baden Powell. In the other hand, this tool shows that many friends really don’t know how to make an efficient use of Google. Several queries are made like questions to Google instead of search terms. It is common to find terms with questions, such like: “I want to read about bossa nova.”, for instance. Another top ranked term is “Duran Duran”, probably made by people looking for information about the rock group Duran Duran arriving here to find Dolores Duran.

Anyway, so far, the great surprise was the trombonist, conductor, arranger and composer Ed Maciel being requested by many people, especially aboard. This post comes in response to this demand for Maestro Ed Maciel music. Let’s see.

This is Ed Maciel –Volume 5 (1968), for London, the fifth out of the eleven albums recorded by Ed Maciel and his orchestra, which are mainly music for dance, very similar to the albums released by Maestro Erlon Chaves’ Banda Veneno Internacional in the same period. Ed Maciel was a very important musician with participation on several important Brazilian instrumental music albums, such like the one released by Os Sete de Ouros, Os Gatos, Moacir Santos’ Coisas, Joao Gilberto’s Chega de Saudade, among many others. Tracks include:

01 – Hey Jude (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)
02 – When I Was Five (Bernstein / Millrose)
03 – Light My Fire (Morrison / Manzarek / Krieger / Densmore)
04 – This Crazy World (Paul Anka)
05 – Do You Know The Way To San José (Burt Bacharach / H. David)
06 – Ed Maciel Tema (José Orlando / Benil Santos)
07 – Those Were The Days (Raskin)
08 – Hold Me Tight (J. Nasch)
09 – Don’t Give Up (T. Hatch / J. Trent)
10 – Choo Choo Train (Fritts / Hinton)
11 – I Dig Rock And Roll Music (P. Stookey / J. Mason / D. Dixon)
12 – Sá Marina (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)

Hello, Good Evening! Wooow! Sorry, I could not control my enthusiasm when I opened the new Caetano Rodrigues packaged and found this fantastic album. My first contact was at Caetano’s place in Sao Paulo. I look to Caetano and asked: “Can I get someday to Loronix?” and he said “Yes!!”. Since then it has been more than a month until the arrival today. I decided to make it first and I hope you get the same good feelings when hearing this fantastic album, like I had this afternoon.

Ao contrário do que diz o Zeca, acredito que este Maciel é, sim,  o Ed Maciel, também conhecido como Edmundo Maciel – http://musicosdobrasil.com.br/ed-maciel . Seu irmão mais novo, Edson Maciel, também trombonista, seguia uma linha mais jazzista – http://musicosdobrasil.com.br/edson-maciel e parece não ter nenhum disco solo.

Hello, Good Evening! I was desperately waiting for this moment to arrive, Saturday night. From now on, no planes flying and making noise on top of my head. Since Tuesday, I was living with a constant and extremely annoying noise of several small planes practicing flights over my window for a competition today, some sort of plane racing. They were small planes; zeca went nuts really angry with them. I thought he thinks they are birds like him. They should not allow this kind of thing in the city. That noise was really a strike on any nervous system. Anyway, I think this process is now over and I kept my sanity.

Let’s start the picks of this Saturday making a lot of noise with Ed Maciel e Sua Orquestra.

This is Ed Maciel e Sua Orquestra – Volume 4 (1967), for London, essentially, music for dancing, powered up by orchestra a great brass section and some Hammond B3 organ in the background. Ed Maciel released eight volumes of this self-titled orchestra series and this is the first one released here at Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – L’important C’est La Rose (Gilbert Bécaud / L. Amade)
