Hello, good evening! Before presenting another special release sponsored by our great collaborator Jorge Mello, I would like to announce that we are very close to finish the work of reconstruction of all Loronix archive, and this is really great. What initially was considered a difficult and exhausting accomplishment became a unique opportunity to review all posts on an amazing, funny and really useful virtual tour of Loronix past.

I confess that I will miss these days and also the new resources created to monitor the work in progress, such like the small screens with links to the last finished weeks. These screens were really useful to motivate people to monitor the work in progress, getting along with albums that they never could have the chance without this event. I think less then a few days are necessary to have everything finished.

Meanwhile, I think it is time to check this beautiful album recorded by Maestro Radames Gnattali in 1965 in commemoration of 400 years of Rio de Janeiro city, featuring a fantastic participation of a very special guest, the legendary Ze Menezes. Let’s see.

This is Radames Gnattali – Concerto Carioca Nr. 1 (1965), for Continental, featuring the piano and compositions of Radames Gnattali, Ze Menezes guitar and Orquestra Sinfonica Continental, conduced by Henrique Morelenbaum. This is a self-explanatory release, Concerto Carioca Nr. 1 is among the most acknowledged works of Radames Gnattali and the participation of Ze Menezes guitar is really worth checking. Tracks include:

01 – 1º Movimento – Abertura Marcha-Rancho (Radames Gnattali)
02 – 2º Movimento – Canção (Radames Gnattali)
03 – 3º Movimento Valsa Seresteira (Radames Gnattali)
04 – 4º Movimento “Final” Samba (Radames Gnattali)


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças ao amigo Andreas e Martoni ele pode ser buscado aqui.

Irany Pinto, José Menezes, Moacyr Silva & Sivuca - 4 Azes Em HI-FI

Hello, good evening! I have been away from Loronix in the past two days, but at the same time, I have never been so close to Loronix, acting behind the scenes and accelerating the work of reactivation of broken links. I have good news. Everything is working until October 15 2006 and from a grand total of 100 weeks, 79 are completed fixed up. I estimate additional 7 or 10 days to fix all weeks, and then Loronix should go back to business as usual. I think it is important to keep everybody informed about our progress. Don’t miss the Restoration Status Panel, always close to the first post.

Don’t miss also this truly amazing release, another album sent by Jorge Mello to our community. Let’s see.

This is Irany Pinto, Jose Menezes, Moacyr Silva, & Sivuca – 4 Azes em HI-FI (1958), for Copacabana. I think this cover and the musicians in this session make leads my writing to something not necessary, but I would like to say this album is not a compilation, they perform together across the whole session, with highlights to each one at specific tracks. Tracks include:


Irany Pinto
Jose Menezes
Moacyr Silva
(tenor sax)
