Maestro Simonetti e Orquestra RGE – Brasil a Jato (1959) was one of the most successful posts at Loronix. That post was also very important as one of the first orchestra LPs made available here. That LP attracted several new Loronixers and most of them are here with us until today. I found this one on that amazing bargains and I think it is as good as Brazil a Jato. Same idea, a repertoire celebrating Brazil and specifically the city of Brasilia, the brand new Brazilian Capital at that time.

This is Maestro Simonetti e Orquestra RGE – Brasil Musical (1960), for RGE. Actually, this is a further reissue, which I do not have any info on its date. By the way, this one is ripped with my brand new equipment. Gimme some feedback, especially this one. I bought it on a very bad condition and perhaps this is the ultimate zecalouro test on LPs restorations. Tracks include:

01 – Brasilia, Capital da Esperanca
02 – Rio de Janeiro
03 – Maringá
04 – Tico-tico no Fuba
05 – Madureira Chorou
06 – Vassourinha
07 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro
08 – Delicado
09 – Samba de Uma Nota So
10 – Favela
11 – Meditacao
12 – Saudades da Bahia

zecalouro received a few days ago from a mystery Loronixer a better vinyl rip and high-quality artworks of one of the best posts so far, Maestro Enrico Simonetti e Orquestra RGE – Brazil a Jato (1959).

If you miss the original, take it. If you love the original, please upgrade. The new artwork can be downloaded here.

I’m grabbing the original post and previous Loronixers comments.


Original Post:

This LP was released by RGE to celebrate Brazilian commercial aviation, something very common at the 50’s, since there are some old LPs celebrating businesses. zecalouro, for instance, has an LP with “flight-listening” songs, sponsored by Cruzeiro airlines.

On this one, Maestro Enrico Simonetti e Orquestra RGE are in charge of all the tracks. This is the first LP out of a series of zecalouro releases to introduce Loronixers the Brazilian orchestras from the 50’s. This one was on queued by zecalouro due a low-res artwork, but he made a nice work on a tiny thumbnail with imaging processing software to make things better. The cover shows a Caravelle from Varig Airlines.

This record is from 1959, as you can see on the article below, published in the Brazilian newspaper O Dia, at 19-11-1959:

“Homenageando a aviação comercial brasileira, a RGE lançou um long-play com o famoso maestro Enrico Simonetti e Orquestra RGE. O disco, cujo título é “Brasil a Jato”, apresenta um desfile de músicas brasileiras bastante conhecidas de norte a sul.
