Maybe you have already in contact with this record, perhaps everybody knows it, but I think Loronix cannot skip this anthological LP just for referencing some nice facts involving this album. Taking apart the name, release date and format that you already know by reading the title, on a first sight, this cover has something modern for the time it was released, really revolutionary. In terms of music, this LP features one of the most emblematic Brazilian artists, Pixinguinha, on a reunion of the best Samba musicians of that time.

This is A Velha Guarda – A Velha Guarda (1955), for Sinter, the debut 10-inch of this legendary group lead by Pixinguinha and featuring Donga, Joao da Bahiana, Almirante, among others. The cover is a work from the Italian Lanfranco Rossi, known as LAN, Italian, but more “Carioca” than many people that were born in Rio de Janeiro. We had already some covers designed by Lan at Loronix, Lan is active until today and his art can be found everywhere. A Velha Guarda was recorded on a single day in July 11th, 1955. Tracks include:

João da Bahiana
