Jorge Ben - Samba Esquema Novo

Hello, good evening! I would like to send my apologies to Loronix’s friends that sent contributions in the last weeks. For reasons that I really don’t know, several new contributions and contributors came out of the blue recently. This is really fine! Thank you.

It was very difficult to choose something among several alternatives available. The last posts were mostly by singers and I was looking for an instrumental release. I decided to take this one, for several reasons. It is the first album recorded by one of the most acclaimed artists we made available at Loronix. It is also a classic album that can be taken under an instrumental perspective since it has the participation of the legendaries Copa 5 and Os Bossa Três, lead by J.T. Meirelles and Luiz Carlos Vinhas, respectively. And it is a Jorge Ben album never released before at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Samba Esquema Novo (1963), for Philips, with well-known Jorge Ben compositions in a short and solid session featuring best of bread Samba Jazz combos from the early 60’s. Jorge Ben had also Maestro Carlos Monteiro de Souza and Lindolpho Gaya in charge of arrangements. Anyway, I feel stupid writing about an album that everybody loves and that everybody wrote wonderful things about. That’s why I will let with Jorge Ben and his Samba Esquema Novo. Tracks include:

Jorge Ben - África Brasil

Hello, good evening! It is really hard to believe this album is now out of print. It is considered by many important people as one of the best popular music albums ever recorded in Brazil. If you take a look around Rate your Music, Amazon or any other customer reviews website you will understand what I’m saying. I’m sure most of Loronix’s friends already have this album, but I think Africa Brasil also belongs to Loronix, and I hope you have a great time with this acclaimed record. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Africa Brasil (1976), for Philips, featuring well-known Jorge Ben tunes, including Ponta de Lanca Africano (Umbabarauma) — the opening track and my selection to Loronix Preview Center — Taj Mahal, Xica da Silva, Camisa 10 da Gavea and others. Personnel listing features a constellation of Brazilian musicians, including Djalma Correa, Wilson das Neves, Ze Roberto Bertrami and the legendary Ze Bigorna. Tracks include:

Jorge Ben - Bem-Vinda Amizade

Hello, good evening! It is always very easy to find information about Jorge Ben albums and career, especially information written by people outside Brazil, where Jorge Ben seems to have a giant popularity. Every Jorge Ben album released at Loronix created at least ten comments, no exception. However, I could not find much information about Bem-vinda Amizade, perhaps never released on CD. Maybe I’m wrong. I had a nice time with this album today; several songs were popular by the release time in 1981. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Bem-vinda Amizade (1981), for Som Livre, featuring well known Jorge Ben compositions. I’m not versed on Jorge Ben discography, but this one seems to be on a more relaxed mood, different from Alo Alo, Como Vai?, released in the same year. Personnel listing features several percussionists supporting Jorge Ben guitar with the accompaniment of bass, drums and keyboards, in some tracks played by the legendary Lincoln Olivetti. Tracks include:


Jorge Ben
(violao, voice, guitar, percussion)
Roberto Dargbli
Bomba Sjostedt

Pena, Miss Lynn
Nenem, Bidu, Luiz Carlos, Cowbel, Joaozinho, Luizinho, Naila

Hello, good evening! This is the album were the last challenge with Jorge Ben and Copa Trio was taken, by the way, another mom’s contribution. I was not thinking about showing at Loronix, but when I took it again today to scan a page, I could see that two tracks are Jorge Ben backed by J.T. Meirelles e Os Copa 5 and a strange force moved my body towards the turntable for a spin. Thanks to the Loronix friend that asked for the second page scan, it is included. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira Nr. 8 (1970), for Abril Cultural, featuring Jorge Ben selected cuts performed by Jorge Ben, J.T.

This is a really nice treat for a given Wednesday. Tracks include:

Jorge Ben - Salve Simpatia-Back

Hello, good evening! I would be completely satisfied just watching this cover artwork with this really nice guy shaking hands with a friend and being embraced by a beautiful girl. I would be also very pleased if I found inside just a single track, Ive Brussel, with the participation of Caetano Veloso, blockbuster at the end of the 70’s in Brazil and a really nice song. However, this is not what Salve Simpatia has to offer, in spite of my great lack of knowledge of the entire work of Jorge Ben, this album seems to be one of his greatest. It is also a great cover, it is impossible to take my eyes out of it and give the necessary attention to music. Finally, I learned to admire Jorge Ben through Loronix and I hope you also have the same fun I had this week when I discovered this album. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Salve Simpatia (1979), for Som Livre, featuring well-known Jorge Ben tracks such like the title track Salve Simpatia and Jorge Ben duet with Caetano Veloso on Ive Brussel. I never heard about a CD reissue of Salve Simpatia and it is amazing that is currently out of print. Tracks include:

Jorge Ben - Tropical

Hello, good evening! One of the most difficult tasks (and more risky) at Loronix is talking about an artist that everybody knows and love, especially when I need to show an album with so little information available. This one is a perfect example, Tropical never had a CD reissue in Brazil, and until last week, was completely unknown to me. Jorge Ben fans go to the last consequences when hunting albums. I received several requests of impossible to find records, but no one ever asked or talked about this one, which is a Jorge Ben LP, always worth a lot to give a try. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Tropical (1977), for Philips, recorded in 1976 in UK for Island Records. Perhaps the only Jorge Ben album recorded outside Brazil, featuring new versions of Jorge Ben older songs, done with Brazilian and international musicians. The repertoire brings nine tunes, but with a lot to hear on 45 minutes running time. I hope Tropical amazes most of you, bringing a solid listen to start another week. Tracks include:


Jorge Ben
(voice, guitar)
Gustavo Schroeter
(drums, percussion)
Eduardo Magalhaes de Carvalho
Joao Batista Pereira
Joao Roberto Vandaluz
(piano, organ)

Track List

01 – Taj Mahal (Jorge Ben)

Jorge Ben - Ben (1972)


I have this album since the first issue in 1972 and only with Loronix I could realize how important it was to my infatuation with this magical human creation called music. Not only for the great music inside, but also for the whole experience available on this nice piece. Think about a little kid with the age of 7, holding this awesome cover with the coolest guy with the greatest attitude ever seen on his short life. I remember to hold this cover when hearing this album thinking fantastic things about Jorge Ben, stupid things such like, “He is waiting for his payment after making this album”, or “he just bought a new car and is waiting for it at the car agency”. Anyway, Jorge Ben is great and I’m very happy to find this album after decades and have the chance to show it for our great community. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Ben (1972), for Philips. I cannot say it is the best Jorge Ben album due my personal affairs explained before, but the reviews I could read today confirm that Ben is really worth checking. Jorge Ben delivers some of his most successful songs for the fist time here with everything based on “acoustic Samba” with Jorge Ben guitar in the foreground backed by a brass section with lots of bass and percussion. Personnel was not credited by Philips and Maestro Osmar Milito is in charge of arrangements on tracks 03 – Paz e Arroz, 04 – Moca and 11 – Taj Mahal, the song Rod Stewart used as the basis to his “Do You Think I’m Sexy?” a long story that I invite friends to discuss at comments section. Tracks include:

01 – Morre o Burro Fica o Homem (Jorge Ben)
02 – O Circo Chegou (Jorge Ben)
03 – Paz e Arroz (Jorge Ben)
04 – Moça (Jorge Ben)

Jorge Ben - O Bidu - Silencio no Brooklin (1966)

Loronixers always make nice recommendations and I use to save all hints on a hunting list. Perhaps I need to make this hunting list public to the community. This album is a perfect example, it is a long time request and perhaps many friends are waiting for it. This post came to life with the help of a contributor that really rocks, AdHoc. I had the chance to take it for a first listen an hour ago and I admit that I’m really amazed with this album, reference and acclaimed by several important artists, such like Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. If you were waiting for this one, thanks to AdHoc for making our waiting over. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – O Bidu | Silencio no Brooklin (1967), for Artistas Unidos / Rozenblit, made available by AdHoc’s 1987 Atoll Music CD reissue. Perhaps I’m the last on earth who do not know the meaning of this album title, O Bidu | Silencio no Brooklin, but it does not matter since we have a great record here. Jorge Ben is backed by The Fevers, which is a successful “Conjunto de Baile” from the 60’s that started on recording as support band of other artists’ albums. I have to take this album for additional spins tomorrow, so here is a deal, let’s use comment section to compile additional info about this great AdHoc contribution. Tracks include:

I’m so tired, I haven’t slept a wink, I’m so tired, my mind is on the blink. I wonder should I get up and fix myself with Loronix… Sorry for referencing this Beatles song, but I woke up today with this song in my head and I’m really tired, tired and very happy with everything that happened on this wonderful Wednesday. I decided to start today by the last and post, just to guarantee his release, I’m not sure if I will make it until the end today.

Let’s talk a little bit about Jorge Ben, one of the most requested artists by Loronixers and a true Brazilian pop music legend, acclaimed by several respectful reviewers. In the other hand, this is only the third album recorded by Jorge Ben made available to Loronixers. Such like Chico Buarque, Jorge Ben has most of his big discography already available commercially and this album is a real find, perhaps widely unknown by Loronixers, specially the friends who lives outside of Brazil. Let’s see.

This is Jorge Ben – Alô, Alô, Como Vai? (1980), for Som Livre. I read today that Alô, Alô, Como Vai? was recorded in Argentina, but liner notes confirms the recording session at Sigla Studios, Rio de Janeiro. Perhaps the Argentinean plane that Jorge Ben is taking, or pretending to take, is the reason of these “rumors”. Jorge Ben delivers infectious Samba flavored funky cuts with arrangements in charge of the acclaimed duo Robson Jorge and Lincoln Olivetti. My highlights goes to the album title track 02 – Alô, Alô, Como Vai? and Jorge Ben homage to the great Caetano Veloso, 06 – Cae Cae Caetano. I hope you have a very solid listen with this Loronix all time favorite. Tracks include:


Lincoln Olivetti
(arrrangements, keyboards)
Robson Jorge
Jorge Ben
(voice, guitar)
Jamil Joanes
Paulinho Braga

Publicado em: Sunday, September 30, 2007 by zecalouro

This is the greatest Mon’s finding ever, a pretty unknown reissue of the anthological Ze Maria album Tudo Azul, featuring vocals by Jorge Ben. This album was already available at Loronix with the blue cover of the first issue (available in your left), but the vinyl conversion was not so well done and probably several friends did not notice its availability and the importance of this record. Let’s see.

This is Ze Maria e Seu Orgao – Tudo Azul (1962), for Continental, upgraded by Disco Lar 1969 reissue. In spite of being an above the average instrumental organ album, including some tracks of true Samba Jazz style, Tudo Azul has one of the first participations of Jorge Ben on recordings, delivering vocals at 02 – Por Causa de Voce Menina and 07 – Mas que Nada. Jorge Ben was pretty unknown by this time and he got a contract with Philips just before this participation on Ze Maria’s album. I think Bossa Nova collectors will be amazed with this release, just like Caetano Rodrigues was today when I spoke about it. Tracks include:

01 – Tudo Azul (João de Barro / Alcyr Pires Vermelho)
02 – Por Causa de Você Menina (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”) with JORGE BEN
03 – Samba do Avião (Tom Jobim)
04 – Japoninho (Orlann Divo / Roberto Jorge)

Publicado em: Friday, July 06, 2007 by zecalouro

I have been wondering about Jorge Ben for weeks. Actually, several friends warned me that Jorge Ben was a missing piece here. They were right; Jorge Ben is a very important artist to Brazilian popular music. If you make a detailed analysis on his discography you will find Bossa Nova, Tropicalismo, MPB, Samba and several other styles. Many fans, inside and outside Brazil, adore him.

This is Jorge Ben – Solta o Pavao (1975), for Philips. It was not easy to start with such experimental album. Solta o Pavao immediately follows the celebrated Tabua de Esmeralda and both are connected to each other. I cannot understand why Solta o Pavao remains obscure, while Tabua de Esmeralda stays under the spotlights, Solta o Pavao belongs to one of the most creative Jorge Ben phases and brings some of my favorite Jorge Ben songs, such as Zagueiro and the fantastic Jorge de Capadocia, among others. Tracks include:

01 – Zagueiro (Jorge Ben)
02 – Assim Falou Santo Tomás de Aquino (Jorge Ben)
03 – Velhos Flores Criancinhas e Cachorros (Jorge Ben)
04 – Dorothy (Jorge Ben) with Evinha
05 – Cuidado Com o Bulldog (Jorge Ben)
06 – Para Ouvir no Rádio (Luciana) (Jorge Ben)
07 – O Rei Chegou Viva o Rei (Jorge Ben)

Publicado em: Thursday, December 14, 2006 by zecalouro

People, have a seat to another fantastic LP by the great Caetano Rodrigues. We have been preparing this post for more than a couple of days and Caetano – with some zecalouro influence – has decided that today is the right day. First, let’s take a special attention to the story behind this post.

Picture yourself in Rio de Janeiro, 1964, the Golden Bossa Nova years. Tamba Trio has just released his third LP for Philips, Tempo. CBD executives, together with Mrs. Stella Marinho from O Globo newspaper, decided to make a partnership to work together on a charity initiative called “Ajude uma Crianca a Estudar”, to collect funds and help child education.

The initiative was launched with a cocktail at Leme Palace Hotel, followed by a concert at Jornal O Globo, “E Tempo de Musica Moderna”, directed by Armando Pittigliani. Philips selected the best available at the cast to perform the show: Copa Trio, Luiz Henrique, Os Cariocas, Rosana Toledo, Jorge Ben and Tamba Trio.

This is E Tempo de Musica Popular Moderna – Varios Artistas (1964), for Philips, with an interesting fact, this is probably the only recording featuring the legendary Copa Trio, with Dom Salvador (piano), Edison Machado (drums) and Sergio Barroso (bass). Copa Trio starts the gig and backs up the remaining artists on the set, Luiz Henrique, Os Cariocas, Rosana Toledo and Jorge Ben. Tamba Trio closes the party with four tunes.

At the end of the concert, people could buy Tamba Trio – Tempo to help children. What amazing day. Who was there? If any friend had the chance to attend this historical concert, please tell us how it was. The track list has 12 songs, I decided to create single tracks for each artist just to be convenient and do not break each one performances. Mario Luiz from Radio Globo, makes nice introductions hosting the show. Tracks include.

What about a 320Kbps audio of a live concert performed by Jorge Ben and Trio Mocoto in Japan, 1972? Pretty interesting. This is what zecalouro received from MOFO, the same who asked and worked together with Marcelo Munhoz on the last Gerson King Combo release.

This concert was performed when Jorge Ben and Trio Mocoto toured in Europe and this is the live recording of the Japanese stage. I’m not sure if this is a official release or a bootleg, no artwork cover is available. This wonderful cover was also a work of MOFO, which is very good and will be opening this release until the original one arrives. Tracks include:

01 – Mas que Nada
02 – Charles Jr.
03 – Que Pena
04 – Take it Easy my Brother Charles
05 – Domenica Domingava num Domingo Linda Toda de Branco
06 – Apresentacao
07 – Oba, La vem Ela
08 – Zazueira
09 – Chove Chuva
10 – Quem Foi que Roubou a Sopeira…
11 – Cade Tereza
12 – Pandeiro, Zabumba, Batucada
13 – Pulo Pulo
14 – Hino do Flamengo, Pais Tropical
15 – Banana Bananeiro
16 – Ta na Hora
17 – Domingas
18 – Cidade Maravilhosa – Hino do Flamengo
