Today is a special date to the American pianist George Shearing, he is completing today his 88th birthday. George Shearing started playing piano at the age of three, having one of the longest, most prolific recording careers in Jazz history.

This is George Shearing – Shearing Bossa Nova (1962), for Capitol Records, featuring arrangements by Clare Fischer. I’m also making available a music video recorded in 1957 featuring one of the several George Shearing combos with a very young Toots Thielemans on acoustic guitar. Let’s celebrate George Shearing. Tracks include:

01 – One Note Samba
02 – Blue Prelude
03 – Desafinado
04 – Nevermore
05 – Butterfly Samba
06 – Pensative Woman
07 – O Green Dolphin Street
08 – Come Rain or Come Shine

This is United Kingdom time, the country that took position number 6 on last year Loronix visitor statistics. Caetano has repared something very unique and different for UK and I need to change the structure I use to present music at Loronix. W have a compilation this time, blending on a single album 3 others released by UK artists on top of Bossa Nova. Let’s see the first.

Really special one and worths all the compilation, very wise of Caetano to include only a single track from Ted Heath – Fever! Ted Heat and His Music. Caetano pick is Garota de Ipanema on top of Big Band arrangements provided by Ted Heath, which is a world wide renowned Big Band leader. Caetano took this track from an LP and for our surprise Garota de Ipanema was not included by the time Fever! was reissued on CD. Get the chance, great opportunity to hear Garota de Ipanema with Big Band arrangements.

01 – Garota de Ipanema

Here we go on second part Caetano’s compilation for UK showing Victor Feldman and 4 selected tracks from his album Victor Feldman – A Taste of Honey and a Taste of Bossa Nova. The cover artwork worth the selection and the music complements nicely. It is amazing that A Taste of Honey and a Taste of Bossa Nova is not listed on major music websites; perhaps this album did not have a CD reissue. they could make it, this music is gorgeous, Caetano’s selection will show it.

02 – On Green Dolphim Street
03 – Theme From 9073
04 – Moon River
05 – Anna

Closing our UK compilation we go with 3 selections from George Shearing – Shearing Bossa Nova Roy Bradley Quintet. George Shearing has a strong Jazz tradition being leader of one of the most popular Jazz groups in the world, the George Shearing Quintet. Caetano’s selection demonstrates what we have on this album, nice instrumental themes on top of Bossa Nova with large space for individual performances. Thanks Caetano for this wonderful gift to UK.

06 – Rio Mio
07 – Bossa Yossa
08 – Schearing a Nova


Não tinha este disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Tiobili e Martoni, ele está disponível na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

Hello, Good Evening! It has been a month or two since we made available a set of videos with Luiz Eca, Luiz Alves and a wonderful female drummer called Lilian Carmona. By that time, I received some emails asking for more information about Lilian Carmona and I could not help that much, little is known about her.

Luiz Harding sent today a video with the legendary George Shearing and – guess who? – Lilian Carmona. I’m feeling confused to pick up the main performer on this video. Anyway, let’s say this is George Shearing and Lilian Carmona performing O Morro Nao Tem Vez (Antonio Carlos Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes) in another fantastic video powered by Luiz Harding.

Hope uEnjoy!
