Hello, Good Evening! Today we had the opening ceremony of Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro. Brazilian and Cariocas are giving a great support to the event. If everything running accordingly, the chances of Brazil on hosting the 2016 Olympic games increases. The ceremony has just finished and it seems everybody was watching it on TV. From the historical 160 visits per hour, our numbers dropped to just 111 visits. Anyway, the show must go on and the day starts at Loronix, starts solid with this very interesting album.

This is Leny Eversong – Leny Eversong na America do Norte (1957), for Copacabana, original released in US as Leny Eversong – Introducing Leny Eversong (1957), for Coral. This is also the first Leny Eversong 12-inch, following her first 10-inch, recently released at Loronix as A Voz de Leny Eversong (1955). This album was a jointly contribution from Daniel Vernhes and Caetano Rodrigues. Daniel sent the Coral issue and Caetano the Copacabana issue, both covers looks very similar. Leny Everson has the accompaniment of Neal Hefti, one of the top Jazz arrangers and composers of the 50’s and his Orchestra. Tracks include:

01 – I Can’t Give You Anything But Love (J. MacHugh / D. Fields)
02 – Tierra Va Templa (M. Merceron) El Cubanchero (Rafael Hernandez)
03 – Stay In My Arms (Paulo Alencar / Ben Raleigh)
04 – Kisses (P. Schisa / A. Roberts / Nisa)

Leny Eversong – A Voz de Leny Eversong (1955)

Hello, Good Evening! I was organizing and cleaning the LPs received on both recent donations to Loronix and I had a surprise. In the middle of a double LP — since the beginning heavier than the average — I could find enclosed this 10-Inch, not a regular one, just the first LP recorded by Leny Eversong in 1955, an artist that always receives acclamations by Loronixers with a lot of downloads on each release. Let’s see.

This is Leny Eversong – A Voz de Leny Eversong (1955), for Copacabana. I wrote an email to the collaborator asking permission for posting and directions to return it to her and she said it was a special surprise to Loronixers. I think we need to say a big thanks to her; this album was the first LP recorded by Leny Eversong featuring orchestra accompaniment and arrangements by Maestro Gaya and Maestro Guerra Peixe on tracks “Otindere”, “Mae de Ouro” and “Lamento tupi”. We are close to cover complete Leny Eversong discography; Caetano Rodrigues is including some surprises on his next package to Loronixers. Tracks include:

01 – Lamento Tupi (Leny Eversong / Maria Silvia)
02 – El Cumbanchero (Rafael Hernandez) Tierra Va Tembla (Mariano Meceron) “Canto Afro-Cubano”
03 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)
04 – Mãe de Ouro (Zé do Norte)
05 – Jezebel (Shanklin)
06 – Otinderê (Leyde Olivé)
07 – Canta Brasil (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / David Nasser) Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso) Canta Brasil (Benedito Lacerda / Aldo Cabral)

Leny Eversong – Leny em Foco! (1957)

The story behind this singer is sometimes hard to believe. Leny Eversong was a renowned singer in the 50’s, she made a solid career in the US and Europe as the main attraction during several seasons in Las Vegas Cassinos and recorded albums outside of Brazil, including a LP in France with Pierre Dorsey Orchestra. Her career collapsed in the early 70 and is getting a new breath with the Internet with albums sold by more than a hundred dollars on auction sites. This one seems to be one of the hardest to find. If you get pleased with it, thanks to zecalouro’s mother, it was very wise of her to find it on a weekend trip to Minas Gerais.

This is Leny Eversong – Leny em Foco! (1957), for Copacabana. This was probably recorded before her US period; the back cover brings some photos with nightclubs with her name as the main attraction. Leny Eversong has passed in 1984 after a long fight against health and personal problems since her husband left home to buy cigarettes and never came back in the early 70’s. Tracks include:

01 – My Yiddishe Momme (J. Yellen / L. Pollak)
02 – Porque Vivemos Assim (Capiba)
03 – Smile (Charles Chaplin / J. Turner / G. Parsons)
04 – Nunca (Lupicínio Rodrigues)
05 – Granada (Agustin Lara)
06 – Águas de Saquarema (Juca Chaves)
07 – Regeneração (César Siqueira)
08 – Meu Quarto Vazio (Meira Guimarães / Vicente Paiva)
09 – Amei Bastante (Vera Brasil / Sivan Castelo Neto)
10 – E Nada Mais (César Siqueira / Maria Rita)
11 – Insulto (Mário Lago / Chocolate)


O disco estava “com defeito”. Porém, graças ao amigo AD, conseguimos a faixa que faltava (08 – Meu Quarto Vazio) e agora ele está corrigido. A versão corrigida pode ser buscada no Parallel Realities.

Varios Artistas – Bossa 12 Vezes (1965)

Here is another cool record sent by Caetano Rodrigues to Loronixers, Bossa 12 Vezes (1965), for Farroupilha, mixing four different artists – really different – on a single LP, featuring, Jongo Trio, Leny Eversong, Conjunto Farroupilha and Bobby Mackay (completely unknown to zecalouro). Refer, if you can assist us on Bobby Mackay, we appreciate.

Have you ever stop to think how many good records were released in 1965? What a year! I like statistics and I think that it would be very interest if someone makes to Loronixers some kind of Loronix albums per year chart. I’m quite sure that we will see 1965 taking the lead over the other years. Tracks include:

01 – A Resposta (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle) – Conjunto Farroupilhas
02 – Aleluia (Edu Lobo / Ruy Guerra) – Leny Eversong
03 – Seu Chopin Desculpe (Johnny Alf) – Jongo Trio
04 – Bossa Nova (I Say) (B. Mackay / J. Bradford) – Bobby Mackay
05 – Samba Internacional (Sidney Morais) – Conjunto Farroupilhas
06 – Arrastão (Edu Lobo / Vinicius de Moraes) – Leny Eversong
07 – Ela Vai Ela Vem (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli) – Jongo Trio
08 – Cool Cool Samba (J. Bradford / R. Simpson) – Bobby Mackay
09 – Rio Rio (Francisco de Assis Bezerra de Menezes) – Conjunto Farroupilhas
10 – Gangazuma (Carlos Cruz / Almeida Rego) – Leny Eversong
11 – Garota Moderna (Evaldo Gouveia / Jair Amorim) – Jongo Trio
12 – The Girl From Sout Zone (Balanço Zona Sul) (Tito Madi / Vrs. B. Mackay / Vrs. D. Gordon) – Bobby Mackay


Não tinha este disco.  Porém, graças aos amigos bOssas nOvas e Martoni, ele hoje está disponível na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

Here is an artist that is having some kind of revival by the music blogs. Her records are available only at old vinyl shops. She was very famous from the 30’s to 60’s, mostly performing songs in English, touring several times in US casinos at Las Vegas and recording in several countries such as The United States and France.

This is Leny Eversong – Fabulosa!!! (1960), for RGE, with Orquestra RGE lead by Maestro Simonetti. Wonderful music and powerful singing that should please Loronix fans of Angela Maria and Elizeth Cardoso. One of her most celebrated resource was her powerful voice. This is the first Leny Eversong release at Loronix, but if you want to see more, visit Unbreakable Microgrooves from my friend Simon Boutman, with the nice Ritmo Fascinante (1958), for Copacabana. Thanks Victor for remembering Leny Eversong at CBox. Tracks include:

01 – Sol de Verão (Theme From “A Summer Place”) (M. Steiner / Vrs. Nazareno de Brito)
02 – Marina (R. Granata)
03 – Symphony (Alstone / J. Lawrence)
04 – Sabor a Mi (Álvaro Carrillo)
05 – Carina (R. Poes / Testa)
