Hello, Good Night! Let’s start today with an album that came to our attention by a Loronixer that features a really unique and very obscure Brazilian artist, Eloir de Moraes. Eloir was an important contributor to Bossa Nova and overall Brazilian music; he started his career in 1945, as drummer at the legendary nightclub of Hotel Plaza, the same hotel that Jobim and others uses to watch Johnny Alf to see his unique playing. Eloir was also an active character at Beco das Garrafas, the legendary spot where many Bossa Nova legends made their performance.

In spite of his importance, Eloir de Moraes never recorded an solo LP, actually, this is the first Eloir de Moraes album in partnership with Joao Donato, recorded on a single week and produced by Almir Chediak. Eloir has passed in October, 2004 and this is Loronix small homage to this wonderful musician.

This is Joao Donato & Eloir de Moraes – Cafe com Pao (1997), for Lumiar Discos, featuring Joao Donato (piano, arrangements), Eloir de Moraes (drums), Arismar do Espirito Santo (bass), Ion Miniz, Raul de Souza, Ricardo Pontes and Altair Martins (sax, trombone, flute and trumpet) and Robertinho Silva (percussion). It is amazing that Eloir de Moraes had to wait 71 years to record his firs album. Tracks include:
