Hello, Good Evening! Starting today with a major acquisition to Loronix community, which is the legendary Brazilian harmonica player Edu da Gaita debut LP on Radio, recorded in 1953. I said before that I’m a great enthusiast of the 10-inch format. The 8 tracks and the average running time of 20 minutes always deliver solid listens. Loronix received a nice contribution in this format and we will start showing friends today.

This is Edu da Gaita – Edu (1953), for Radio, featuring Edu da Gaita harmonica with arrangements and orchestra conduction by Alexandre Gnattali, brother of the Brazilian Maestro Radames Gnattali. I think we spoke a lot about Edu da Gaita in an early album at Loronix. You can hear at Edu da Gaita official website his rendition to Moto Perpetuo of Paganini, he spent eleven years practicing this song before making public, here. Tracks include:

01 – Dança do Sabre (A. Katchaturian)
