Hello, Good Evening! One of the favorites Caetano Rodrigues musicians is back to Loronix, Izio Gross, a widely unknown artist in Brazil, but an acclaimed musician overseas, especially in German, the country were he lives and made most part of his discography.

This is Izio Grosss y Su Ritmo – Bossa Nova in Rhythm (no date), for Kubaney. I have been searching for info about this album with no success. Caetano says that Bossa Nova in Rhythm was recorded in Mexico and he is right since Kubaney is a Mexican record label. I’ve been searching also at Izzio Gross official website and among several itens on his discography, this one is not listed. I think it should be listed; this is one of the best Izio Gross albums I have heard with vivid Samba Jazz renditions of Bossa Nova standards. Tracks include:

01 – Desafinado
02 – Zelao
03 – Tristeza Alegre
04 – Noite do Meu Bem
05 – Eu-e-o-Rio
06 – Murmurio
07 – Barquinho
08 – Dindi
09 – Palhacada
10 – Samba de Minha Terra
11 – Quem Quiser Encontrar o Amor
12 – Ceu e Mar


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Eliane e Martoni, ele agora está disponível na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

I have been with this record for a while and it is so good and so hard to find that you will blame it zecalouro for not making it earlier. This is a very old Caetano Rodrigues contributions and I’m glad that Caetano remember it on a phone call yesterday.

This is Izio Gross – Noa Noa (1998), for Mix House. Noa Noa is a very hard to find out of print CD recorded in South Africa by the Brazilian Maestro Izio Gross that features Airto Moreira and Jose Neto. This is the second Izio Gross album at Loronix and I was surprised to know with this CD that Izio Gross released several records while outside Brazil. I’m not talking about a few CDs, but more than ten albums on a solid international career. Tracks include:
