Hello, Good Evening! Yesterday I was talking about statistics, numbers and how this parrot was a big fan of these things. I think I’m not alone on this. There is a page view counter on Loronix right sidebar that reached 1,000,000 page views today. I was not home and by the time I arrived, my mailbox was full of congratulations messages for such thing. Thanks, it is nice how friends like these numbers, specially Martoni, on a way I don’t know how could capture the exact time the counter was showing 1,000,000. Thanks, Martoni, your screen capture is now part of my gallery.

Anyway, the show must go on and I want to start today addressing many requests from the fans of Para Dancar style, they complain that I did not release the style in the last days. Let’s see.

This is Jose Luciano – Jose Luciano, Seu Piano, Seu Ritmo (1957), for Copacabana, the first out of three albums released by the Brazilian pianist Jose Luciano for Copacabana titled “Seu Piano, Seu Ritmo”. The first thing that comes to my mind when looking at this album and this cover artwork is to understand how such, how can I say, “sexy” cover is released in 1957. You should agree that this girl is really ahead of the “standards” of that time. Jose Luciano performs a repertoire of Sambas based on Brazilian and international standards. Tracks include:

01 – Tarde Demais (José Luciano)
02 – Conceição (Jair Amorim / Dunga)
03 – Love Is a Many Splendored Thing (Paul Francis Webster / S. Fain)
04 – Pois É (Ataulfo Alves)
05 – Crepúsculo de Amor (Vicente Paiva / Lita Rodrigues)
06 – Teus Olhos Entendem os Meus (Haroldo Eiras / Victor Berbara)
07 – Brasília (José Luciano / Mário Flávio) – Amar Outra Vez (M. Stoloff / G. Sidney)
08 – Quintandinha (Djalma Ferreira)
09 – So In Love (Cole Porter)
10 – Canção da Volta (Antônio Maria / Ismael Netto)
11 – Dancing In The Dark (A. Schwartz / H. Dietz)
12 – Dó-ré-mi (Fernando César)
13 – Sinfonia Verde Amarelo (Pernambuco)


Esse disco pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma e Elenco do Martoni.

This is a really old record, probably one of the oldest at Loronix. Actually, the oldest is Dalva de Oliveira – A Voz Sentimental do Brasil (1953), but this has something special, it is an instrumental album with piano, the record label is the legendary Mocambo including the little house with the name Mocambo on wood and it is the debut record of a unknown – at least for zecalouro – artist.

This is Jose Luciano, Seu Piano e Ritmo – Sambas (1955), for Mocambo, as said the debut LP of the pianist Jose Luciano. I could not search additional information about Jose Luciano with this computer crash, but you will read at the linear notes that Jose Luciano started at the age of six in 1938, worked with Dorival Caymmi and Luiz Gonzaga on radio and was discovered by Mocambo folks while testing a piano on a record store. That’s it. Tracks include:

01 – Risque (Ary Barroso)
02 – Nem Eu (Dorival Caymmi)
03 – Feitiço da Vila (Noel Rosa / Vadico)
04 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha / João de Barro)
05 – Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
06 – Palpite Infeliz (Noel Rosa)
07 – De Cigarro Em Cigarro (Luis Bonfá)
08 – Copacabana (João de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças ao Milan Filipovic, ele hoje está disponível no Parallel Realities.
