That’s exactly what I was thinking for this Saturday, Samba, perfect for dancing and perfect for Loronixers, even those who don’t have what we call in Brazil “Samba no Pe”. I don’t have Samba no Pe, but I know everybody likes it. I will tell you what it is.

This is Jose Briamonte – Ritmos e Vozes | Agora e Samba (1973), for Odeon. That’s a really inquisitive record. Maestro Briamonte is in charge of everything, arrangements, and conduction also taking the role of musical director. I have an assumption that female singing and percussion instruments are played by the obscure group Ritmos e Vozes, however, it is just a hint. The repertoire is based on Samba tunes from Vinicius de Moraes, Ana Maria, Eduardo Gudin, Luiz Americo, Noel Rosa and others. Another Jose Briamonte LP that I never heard before. If you are in the mood of an orchestra LP, just like the legendary Briamonte Orchestra, think twice. This is all about Samba songs with girls singing. Tracks include:

01 – Tristeza Pé no Chão (Armando Fernandes “Mamão”)
02 – Orgulho de Um Sambista (Gilson de Souza)
03 – Meu Pai Oxalá (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Assim Não Dá (Ana Maria)
05 – Verso Novo (Eduardo Gudin / Caú)
06 – Depois Que o “Taruim” Chegou Nunca Mais Melhorou (Capoeira)
07 – Ontem (Zé Di / Astrogildo Silva)
08 – Pra Minha Mulata Eu Sou Mais Eu (Ton Graça / Carlos Costa)
09 – Desafio (Luis Américo / Bráulio de Castro / Clóvis de Lima)
10 – Mexe Mexe (Otacílio de Jesus / Ciro / Bloco Carnavalesco Bafo da Onça)
11 – Bahia Berço do Brasil (Baianinho)
12 – Quem Ri Melhor (Noel Rosa)


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Andreas e Martoni, ele agora pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

I think this Saturday is the day to show the great and forgotten music available on zecalouro’s shelf. I don’t like to run Loronix under controls, lists, catalogs, etc. Great part of the pleasure of being here is to make the selections based on instincts and even associating the experiences I had on the day with the albums posted tonight. It is a way to present this great music with passion, giving a personal touch in the process. Caetano runs on the same chaotic pattern, making his selections on what HE wants to hear, this is great.

This is Jose Briamonte – Briamonte Orchestra (1970), for Elenco, another LP that deserves special attention, highly recommended by Caetano Rodrigues. It is weird to show this album after ten months of Loronix. I work together with Sabadabada to have the last Briamonte release; Sambeco (check Loronix Find It!) while this gem was under my nose for months. Really great LP produced by Roberto Menescal and arranged by Maestro Briamonte. Tracks include:

01 – Tema de Cristina (José Briamonte)
02 – Airport Love Theme (A. Newman / Paul Francis Webster)
03 – Primavera (Vai Chuva) (Cassiano / Silva Rochael)
04 – Rota Sul (José Briamonte)
05 – True Grit (E. Bernstein / D. Black)
06 – Assim na Terra Como no Céu (Roberto Menescal / Nonato Buzar / Paulinho Tapajós)
07 – O Embalo do Pato (José Briamonte)
08 – What The World Needs Now Is Love (Burt Bacharach / David)
09 – Zip (José Briamonte)
10 – Everybody’s Talkin’ (Neil)
11 – Caos (José Briamonte)
12 – Quarentão Simpático (Renatão) (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
13 – Atmosfera (José Briamonte)


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

I received this record from, as I said, the pionner website of Brazilian music and Bossa Nova. I’m really proud of it. Sabadabada wrote on the last update that he was hunting this LP for several years. Kindly, sabadabada gave it to Loronixers, this is all about friendship, respect and mutual passion for the music from Brazil. Thanks sabadabada, as a great fan of your website, it is a honor.

This is Jose Briamonte – Sambeco, A Musica de Briamonte (1968), for RCA Victor, a very hard to find LP, the first LP released by Jose Briamonte, prior to the well-known and acclaimed Briamonte Orquestra (1970), Elenco as ME-70, by the way a nice LP that Loronixers are missing. Pretty self-explanatory, a truly rare LP with amazing personnel that is probably unknown to several friends. Tracks include:


Jose Briamonte
(piano and arrangements)
Raul de Souza
Heraldo do Monte
(acoustic guitar)
(drums and percussion)
Irmas Gleb
