Hello, good evening! It has been a long time since we spoke for the last time, then it’s time to talk a little about several things that are happening around our community. To begin, I would like to apologize AdHoc for skipping his new collaboration due small technical problems from my side. I would also like to welcome several brand new friends that are reaching Loronix for the first time referred by Bing, a new and very good search engine by Microsoft. Loronix is very well positioned at Bing and this is really nice.

Another nice thing is a new referrer campaign created by Rapidshare, which is now giving Loronix a small percentage of every sale of Rapidshare accounts purchased using this link. It is very simple. When you purchase or renew your Rapidshare account, follow this link and Loronix is automatically rewarded with a small but very important commission based on the money you spend with them. Don’t forget this link, please.

And to close, I would like to say that the unplanned and not communicated slow pace of updates is now over. From now one, we will have at least 1 new release every two days and that is something that makes me feel great. It is important to get close again with friends and the awesome past of Brazilian music. I’m back. Let’s see.

This is Emilio Santiago – Feito para Ouvir (1977), for Philips, featuring Emilio Santiago on his early and acclaimed initial career LPs. Such like Erasmo Carlos – Convida, Feito para Ouvir is a very old demand made by several Loronix friends. It is the third album recorded by Emilio Santiago and according to specialists, landmarks the end of his best years before making his commercially oriented releases. Philips made a great job providing personnel information at the back cover, and we have a constellation of Brazilian musicians in this session. Tracks include:

Luiz Carlos Vinhas & Emilio Santiago – Ao Vivo (1974)

Hello, good evening! Yesterday, we had Sabadabada.com tribute and today this amazing contribution by JIN, Jose Ignacio Neto, which is another Brazilian music hero in cyberspace. In case you don’t know who, JIN belongs to the third generation of the Ignacio’s family, a family devoted to Brazilian music. His grandfather, the legendary Jose Ignacio, was the man behind the anthological “A Volta” podcast. JIN delivers a contribution that I’m sure you never had the chance to hear before, an unissued session featuring Luiz Carlos Vinhas and Emilio Santiago, recorded live in 1974 by Bill Horn. I will leave now as the show will be hosted by JIN from now one with his own knowledgeable words. JIN, my apologies for taking a long time to make this one. Let’s see.

Jose Ignacio Neto says: “One of the key figures amongst global collectors of funky Brazilian bossa over the last 20 years was undoubtedly the leader and pianist Luiz Carlos Vinhas.

A charismatic figure and stalwart of the Rio nightclub scene until his early death a few short years ago, Vinhas sometimes straddled the line between fantastic good taste and total ‘cafonice’ to use a word from back in the day. An instinctive pianist, I remember seeing him playing in 2000 at the Vinicius Piano Bar in Rio, on a crappy keyboard and being amazed as I watched his small chubby fingers seemingly bounce around the keyboard in the manner of someone pretending to be able to play the piano, and yet out came incredible sounds full of swing and rhythm!

For many, the CBS album from 1968 (produced by Helcio Milito from Tamba Trio) simply called L.C.V – O Som Psicedelico was his best work. A frenetic mixture of pop tunes, bossa, afro cuban funk – and the Chattanooga Choo Choo! His seminal composition on this album Ye-Me-Le is known to millions via the Sergio Mendes version.

After that LP he didn’t record much and the 1973 album ‘No Flog’ on EMI Odeon was a bit of a disappointment – just pot pourris with added cheers and clinking whisky glasses.

But imagine if there was a long lost recording with music on a level with O Som Psicodelico? And imagine if that recording also marked one of the earliest recordings of super soul singer Emilio Santiago?

Back in 1974 trumpeter and studio owner Bill Horne (known to Loronix fans from his many appearances in the ‘Guess Who’ photo competitions) recorded this session with Vinhas backing Santiago.

For many years the tapes languished on a dusty shelf in Leblon, but some years ago my grandfather Jose Ignacio was given a copy, un-mastered and straight from the tapes but so fantastic that it deserves to see the light of day for all dedicated Vinhas and Emilio fans.

The musicians’ names are long forgotten (but some Loronix fans please tell us if it’s you playing!) but are ‘feras’ in their own right.

And if this super rare session wasn’t enough, I’ve included a demo recording of Emilio Santiago that I believe was used to get his recording contract with Durval Ferreira at CID in 1975. Edson Frederico is the pianist here, drummer was probably Ronie Mesquita.

As Zeca would have said back then, Valeu, Bicho!”

zecalouro: “Valeu! JIN!”

Emilio Santiago – Emilio Santiago (1975)

Publicado em: Sunday, April 22, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello! Good Evening! I was decided to describe how was the great day I had but I decided to be a little bit straightforward. However, I need to tell the day was great. Period. Great enough to decide on addressing this long time request by Loronixers, the debut LP of Emilio Santiago, considered one of the best Brazilian voices on the current scene. I will take also advantage to present a video and also answer an old challenge. Let’s see.

This is Emilio Santiago – Emilio Santiago (1975), for CID. I was astonished when I check the release date of Emilio Santiago first LP. Emilio took 10 years to release his fist album before he made the appearance on that early challenge at the gas station. I’m making that video available again in case you miss it. This is a very hard review, since it is a very different album from what we are used to expect from Emilio Santiago, a romantic singer with a commercial repertoire. This debut has wonderful Samba Soul renditions performed with soul. I will let the comments section for the specialist, Trix, Mr. G., Mr. B, Now, Donatinho and many others 70’s authorities. I’m making also a video by Luiz Harding showing Emilio Santiago and Cesar Camargo Mariano performing together. Tracks include:

01 – Bananeira (Gilberto Gil / João Donato)
02 – Quero Alegria (Nelson Cavaquinho / Guilherme de Brito)
03 – Porque Somos Iguais (Durval Ferreira / Pedro Camargo)
04 – Batendo a Porta (João Nogueira / Paulo César Pinheiro)
05 – Depois (Ivan Lins / Otávio Daher)
06 – Brother (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
07 – La Mulata (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
08 – Nega Dina (Zé Keti)
09 – Doa a Quem Doer (Ivan Lins)
10 – Sessão das Dez (Tita / Édison Lobo / Renato Rocha)

Este disco pode ser buscado no Rio Groove FM.

Este é o primeiro vídeo, Emílio Santiago com o César Camargo Mariano. Quem conseguiu ele para nós foi o nosso amigo bOssas nOvas.
