In Brazil, Tatuí is (or was) a small crab, easily fond at the beach until the 80’s. I think they have disappeared. Tatui is also the name of a city at Sao Paulo State. Tatui is also the name of a fantastic Samba Jazz band lead by Jose Roberto Bertrami – future Azimuth leader – that take this name as a homage to the city were band members were born, Tatui.

This is Os Tatuis – Os Tatuis (1965), for Farroupilha, an above the average Samba Jazz LP by an early Jose Roberto Bertrami. Personnel is José Roberto Bertrami (piano), Cláudio Henrique Bertrami (bass), Elizeu de Campos Vieira (drums), Og Vasconcelos (sax tenor), Ivo Mendes (piston) and Aresky Aratto (organ) with Bertrami arrangements. A record that speaks by itself. Tracks include:

01 – Vivo Sonhando (Tom Jobim)
02 – Nuvens (Durval Ferreira / Maurício Einhorn)
03 – Inútil Paisagem (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
04 – Você (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)

Jose Roberto e Seu Conjunto – Organ Sound, Um Novo Estilo (1970)

Once again, another Brazilian 60’s organist to be added to zecalouro’s list and a complete obscure LP, Jose Roberto e Seu Conjunto – Organ Sound, Um Novo Estilo (1970).

On a first hearing, zecalouro was awesome by the arrangements, rhythm section and Jose Roberto technique on his Hammond B3.

Suddenly, a big question on zecalouro’s green head has appeared: who is this Jose Roberto, that plays so nice and made this amazing LP? Jose Roberto is in fact an early Jose Roberto Bertrami, the Brazilian legend who afterwards itself formed the international acclaimed Azymuth. At least, zecalouro will keep the list untouched this time.

5 out of 5 stars Brazilian instrumental music made by Bertrami. A really nice LP that is some steps ahead of its counterparts of that time.

Brazilian music amazes me. The old LPs are coming to zecalouro hand like a waterfall. Many thanks to all Loronixers around the world. zecalouro receives more music than his capacity to post here. Maybe one day it should be necessary to create some sort of Loronix Letfovers Blog to introduce several geems zecalouro has under his green wing.


Este disco acaba de ser corrigido, com a ajuda do Flabbergast. Na versão anterior  faltava a faixa 2. Agora ele também está com o som em melhor qualidade e pode ser buscado no Flabbergasted Vibes.
