Hello, good evening! Today was the best day I had since Loronix Headquarters made the move to Jacarepaguá in March 2009. The reason for such a perfect day was simple; my internet link was down all day long, which enabled me to leave the house for some interesting musical missions around the neighborhood.

The first mission was a visit to the famous Retiro dos Artistas house and try to talk to its most famous guest at the moment, Mrs. Rosana Toledo. My idea was to take some of her albums with me and giver her as a gift. I read that she no longer have them. I could not talk with Rosana Toledo, but I could schedule something for a new opportunity. Perhaps I can take some pictures and gather a message to our community?

My second mission had this album in mind. I knew Jacob do Bandolim lived in Jacarepaguá and his place was a meeting point with plenty of music everytime. I walked the streets, I asked questions, I ran some risk by going to places that did not know, but unfortunately could not find the place.

Anyway, I hope this album can bring this information. It was recorded in the house of Jacob Bandolim and released a few years after his early death by Herminio Bello de Carvalho. Let’s see.

This is Jacob do Bandolim – Os Saraus de Jacob (1971), for RCA Camdem, featuring Jacob do Bandolim performing at his own place with Conjunto Epoca de Ouro with Paulo Tapajos as special guest on three tracks. Side A brings a recording taken in 16/Aug/1968, and side B two months later with Paulo Tapajos in 06/Nov/1968. Liner notes written by Herminio Bello de Carvalho bring detailed information about both sessions and the whole spirit of how these Saraus happened at Jacob do Bandolim’s place. Tracks include:




Cesar Faria
(violao 7 cordas)
Manoel Rigaud
Dino 7 Cordas (Side B)
(violao 7 cordas)

Track List

01 – Brejeito (Ernesto Nazareth)
02 – Faceira (Ary Barroso)
03 – Noites Cariocas (Jacob do Bandolim)
04 – Os Olhos Dela (Catulo da Paixão Cearense / Irineu de Almeida) with PAULO TAPAJOS / JACOB DO BANDOLIM
05 – Trovas (Adelmar Tavares / Marcelo Tupinambá) with PAULO TAPAJOS
06 – Lágrimas (Cândido das Neves “Índio”) with PAULO TAPAJOS / JACOB DO BANDOLIM

Avena de Castro e Primo – Som Ambiente Vol. 2 (1975)

Publicado em: Sunday, May 17, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! Maybe I am wrong as usual, but I think this record will surprise many friends. I never heard about the existence of a second volume of the anthological Som Ambiente, recorded by Marcos Valle and Azymuth in 1972. And this is what both volumes have in common since the concept is totally different. Instead of not credited artists, this surprising duo has loud and clear credits, including lots of information available at the back cover (some of them very hard to believe) and the participation of Durval Ferreira on two tracks, which is also the producer director. Let’s see.

This is Avena de Castro & Joao Peixoto Primo – Avena e Primo | Som Ambiente Vol 2 (1975), featuring for the first time at Loronix the sitar player Avena de Castro and the well-known pianist and organist Primo. Avena’s sitar sounds like an electric guitar, different from the sound of sitar made popular by George Harrison and Ravi Shankar in the 1960’s, which was my expectation before taking Som Ambiente Vol 2 for a first spin. A few Google searches were enough to tell me that Avena de Castro started as a classical musician and later embraced popular music. He is also considered the first and only sitar player in Brazilian popular music. Tracks include:



Avena de Castro
Durval Ferreira
(guitar on 01 – Coco, So Coco, 02 – Vo Bate pra Tu)

Track List

01 – Coco Só Coco (Villanova / Badi)
02 – Romance de Amor (Rafael Rovira)
03 – Tamanco Malandrinho (Tom / Dito) Dona Flôr e Seus Dois Maridos (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi)
04 – Song For Anna (André Popp / Jean / C. Massoulier)
05 – Naquela Mesa (Sergio Bittencourt) De Peito Aberto (Silvio Silva / Sergio Bittencourt)
06 – Soleado (Zacar / Siae)
07 – Vô Baté Pá Tú (Arnaud Rodrigues / Orlandivo)
08 – Feelings (Morris Albert)
09 – Toró de Lágrimas (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi / Zé do Maranhão)
10 – The Entertainer (Golpe de Mestre) (S. Joplin)
11 – Eu Quero Apenas (Roberto Carlos)

Francisco Petronio e Dilermando Reis – Uma Voz e Um Violao em Serenata Vol. 2 (1963)

Link original: Francisco Petronio e Dilermando Reis – Uma Voz e Um Violao em Serenata Vol. 2 (1963)
Publicado em:  Monday, April 06, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! If our mission is to tell the story of Brazilian popular music, it would fail if we skip this duo formed by a singer and an instrumentalist. The singer is Francisco Petronio, being introduced for the first time at Loronix, and by the way, an important singer. Francisco Petronio recorded over 50 LPs in a career that started late and lasted no more than two decades. Dilermando Reis does not requires an introduction, his violao is the only instrument heard at this album and this is the first time we have an album by Dilermando Reis accompanying a singer. They recorded together 7 LPs in this series of seresta performance, a genre we are getting along for the first time at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Francisco Petronio e Dilermando Reis – Uma Voz, e Um Violao em Serenata Vol. 2 (1963), for Continental, the second out of seven seresta albums release by the duo. Although the cover in the spirit of a serenata, I think a brief explanation is needed. Seresta or Serenata is music for a lover, in the evening time below the lover or the candidate window. I think it is something that belongs to the past, not the music, but the attitude of singing below someone else window. Anyway, the music speaks by itself. Tracks include:

01 – Sob o Céu de Brasília (Dilermando Reis / José Fortuna)
02 – Reflorir da Minha Vida (Saint-Clair Sena)
03 – A Pequenina Cruz do Teu Rosário (Roberto Xavier de Castro / Fernando Weyne)
04 – Flor do Mal (Santos Coelho)
05 – Última Inspiração (Peterpan)
06 – Serenata (Silvio Caldas / Orestes Barbosa)
07 – Dois Destinos (Dilermando Reis / José Fortuna)
08 – Pálida Morena (Freire Júnior)
09 – Revendo o Passado (Freire Júnior)
10 – Uma Valsa e Dois Amores (Dilermando Reis / José Fortuna)
11 – Não Sei (Francisco Alves / Orestes Barbosa)
12 – Lágrimas (Cândido das Neves “Índio”)

Lyrio Panicali – Lyrio Panicali faz Samba em 2 Tempos (1967)

Publicado em: Wednesday, April 01, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I’m really glad to present another Lyrio Panicali career LP never made available before at Loronix. By the way, the last album with Lyrio Panicali as main performer was released in the remote November 2007, exactly 16 months ago. I made a quick examination at Lyrio Panicali discography and I’m happy to know that we still have several albums never released in CD to show. Some of these albums I never had the chance to see how the cover looks like. Anyway, Maestro Lyrio Panicali is a really special artist and I urge Loronix community to pay attention to this release. I will tell you. Let’s see.

This is Lyrio Panicali – Lyrio Panicali faz Samba em 2 Tempos (1967), for Codil Ritmos, featuring Orquestra de Sopros da Radio Ministerio da Educacao e Cultura. This album can easily cheat you at a first sight, but as soon as you spin the first track you understand that you are in front of something very similar to Panicali’s Nova Dimensao, an acclaimed album by Samba Jazz fans. This one is very similar and Lyrio Panicali is in front of an Orchestra made of professional musicians from Radio Ministerio da Educacao e Cultura, including the legendary K-Ximbinho. Believe-me, if you are looking for Samba tunes performed by an orchestra with Samba Jazz beat and drumming, this is really worth checking. Tracks include:

Lyrio Panicali
(piano, arrangements, direction)
Waldyr Brito
Sebastiao Barros AKA K-Ximbinho
Giuseppe Sergi
Canuto Pizziali, Jose G de Moura
Mario Roxo, Waldemar G de Moura
Jose Miranda Pinto, Pedro Nogueira Filho
(alto sax)
Fernando Barros Pinto, Adherbal Moreira, Lupercilio Lyra
(tenor sax)
Francisco Monteiro Filho
(baritone sax)
Pedro Vidal Ramos
Luiz Gonzaga Bittencourt
Sebastiao Vieira Gomes
Juvenal Nunes Sampaio Sobrinho

Track List

01 – Bahia (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
02 – Marina (Dorival Caymmi)
03 – Último Desejo (Noel Rosa)
04 – Eu Sem Maria (Dorival Caymmi)
05 – Fita Amarela (Noel Rosa)
06 – Rio (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
07 – Peguei Um Ita no Norte (Dorival Caymmi)
08 – Preciso Aprender a Ser Só (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)

Chico Buarque de Hollanda – Volume 3 (1968)

Link original: Chico Buarque de Hollanda – Volume 3 (1968)
Publicado em: Tuesday, March 03, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! A friend of mine, very connected to Brazilian music scene, with access to virtually all artists, said the only artist that left nervous and anxious when contacting was Chico Buarque. He said this thing a couple of years ago and I did not understand why by that time. Today, with Loronix, this statement came to my mind and his anguish is now clear. Chico Buarque is one of the greatest Brazilian artists in activity, able to move successfully between different artistic manifestations, including the challenging terrain of literature. Above all, Chico Buarque is an artist with respect to his own beliefs, a very intelligent man. His work was long available commercially through the release of all his discography in a box set. This is the reason his music is not represented here like other artists. I am very happy to make this album, the third out three Chico Buarque initial releases for RGE, considered by many his best releases. Let’s see.

This is Chico Buarque de Hollanda – Volume 3 (1968), for RGE, featuring orchestra and arrangements by Maestro Lindolpho Gaya and important participations of Toquinho, MPB-4 and recording debut of Chico Buarque sister, Cristina Buarque. Volume 3 features several well-known Chico Buarque compositions, including Retrato em Branco e Preto (Chico Buarque / Antonio Carlos Jobim), Roda Viva (Chico Buarque), Funeral de um Lavrador (Chico Buarque / Joao Cabral de Melo Neto) and my favorite Carolina (Chico Buarque). Sadly, musicians were not credited by RGE. Tracks include:

01 – Ela Desatinou (Chico Buarque)
02 – Retrato Em Branco e Preto (Tom Jobim / Chico Buarque)
03 – Januária (Chico Buarque)
04 – Desencontro (Chico Buarque) with TOQUINHO
05 – Carolina (Chico Buarque)
06 – Roda Viva (Chico Buarque) with MPB-4
07 – O Velho (Chico Buarque)
08 – Até Pensei (Chico Buarque)
09 – Sem Fantasia (Chico Buarque) with CRISTINA BUARQUE
10 – Até Segunda-feira (Chico Buarque)
11 – Funeral de Um Lavrador (Chico Buarque / João Cabral de Melo Neto)
12 – Tema Para ”Morte e Vida Severina” (Chico Buarque)

Nara Leao, Com Acucar, Com Afeto (1980)

Hello! Yesterday, more like a kind of therapy than anything else in this crazy 2009, I made a script that addresses a very old request of Loronix community. It is already available and you probably have seen it. Now we have an option to download individual tracks from a disc, instead of the whole album on a huge zip ball. It is always available as “Individual Tracks” on post closing information (if the size is set to 0,00Mb, don’t worry, the robot will fix it). It is an amazing feature, which is gradually being materialized by a robot that works 24hours a day with no complaints. It is beautiful; he is taking files from Rapidshare, opening on our dedicated server, reading its contents, recording all the information on a database and sending everything back to Rapidshare as single tracks.

Some very interesting numbers were collected so far. From a total of 1894 albums available, the robot has finished with 599, making available 5836 tracks for individual hearing. I believe that in the end of the process we will have 20,000 tracks available. These numbers are crazy and they open possibilities for several innovations in the near future. Additionally, images are also being addressed and so far we have 1350 images available. I’m impressed with these figures. If you have any idea to make use and maximize this work, please drop me a line.

I’m talking today. Perhaps Nara Leao is giving a chance. Nara Leao is the most representative Bossa Nova singer and everybody loves her. Let’s see.

This is Nara Leao – Com Acucar e Com Afeto (1980), for Philips, featuring Chico Buarque compositions and Chico Buarque participation as special guest on three tracks. It is a common mistake to take this one as another Nara Leao release, with the same title and different cover, a commercially available compilation. Nara’s tribute to Chico Buarque is produced and arranged by Octavio Burnier and features a constellation of Brazilian musicians. Tracks include:


Octavio Burnier Bonfa
(guitar, arrangements)
Eneas Costa, Paulinho Braga
Jamil Joanes, Luizao Maia
Jose Roberto Bertrami, Marcos Resende
Celso Woltzenlogel, Jorginho da Flauta
Cesar Sampaio, Claudio Cartier, Octavio Burnier Bonfa, Sonia Burnier
Antonio Adolfo

Track List

01 – A Rita (Chico Buarque)
02 – Onde É Que Você Estava (Chico Buarque)
03 – Ela Desatinou (Chico Buarque)
04 – Trocando Em Miúdos (Chico Buarque / Francis Hime)
05 – O Que Será (À Flor da Pele) (Chico Buarque)
06 – Baioque (Chico Buarque)
07 – Dueto (Chico Buarque) with CHICO BUARQUE
08 – Vence na Vida Quem Diz Sim (Chico Buarque / Ruy Guerra) with CHICO BUARQUE
09 – Samba e Amor (Chico Buarque)
10 – Homenagem ao Malandro (Chico Buarque)
11 – Olhos nos Olhos (Chico Buarque)
12 – Mambembe (Chico Buarque) with CHICO BUARQUE

Luiz Carlos Vinhas & Emilio Santiago – Ao Vivo (1974)

17 08 2013

Link original: Luiz Carlos Vinhas & Emilio Santiago – Ao Vivo (1974)
Publicado em: Wednesday, February 25, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! Yesterday, we had Sabadabada.com tribute and today this amazing contribution by JIN, Jose Ignacio Neto, which is another Brazilian music hero in cyberspace. In case you don’t know who, JIN belongs to the third generation of the Ignacio’s family, a family devoted to Brazilian music. His grandfather, the legendary Jose Ignacio, was the man behind the anthological “A Volta” podcast. JIN delivers a contribution that I’m sure you never had the chance to hear before, an unissued session featuring Luiz Carlos Vinhas and Emilio Santiago, recorded live in 1974 by Bill Horn. I will leave now as the show will be hosted by JIN from now one with his own knowledgeable words. JIN, my apologies for taking a long time to make this one. Let’s see.

Jose Ignacio Neto says: “One of the key figures amongst global collectors of funky Brazilian bossa over the last 20 years was undoubtedly the leader and pianist Luiz Carlos Vinhas.

A charismatic figure and stalwart of the Rio nightclub scene until his early death a few short years ago, Vinhas sometimes straddled the line between fantastic good taste and total ‘cafonice’ to use a word from back in the day. An instinctive pianist, I remember seeing him playing in 2000 at the Vinicius Piano Bar in Rio, on a crappy keyboard and being amazed as I watched his small chubby fingers seemingly bounce around the keyboard in the manner of someone pretending to be able to play the piano, and yet out came incredible sounds full of swing and rhythm!

For many, the CBS album from 1968 (produced by Helcio Milito from Tamba Trio) simply called L.C.V – O Som Psicedelico was his best work. A frenetic mixture of pop tunes, bossa, afro cuban funk – and the Chattanooga Choo Choo! His seminal composition on this album Ye-Me-Le is known to millions via the Sergio Mendes version.

After that LP he didn’t record much and the 1973 album ‘No Flog’ on EMI Odeon was a bit of a disappointment – just pot pourris with added cheers and clinking whisky glasses.

But imagine if there was a long lost recording with music on a level with O Som Psicodelico? And imagine if that recording also marked one of the earliest recordings of super soul singer Emilio Santiago?

Back in 1974 trumpeter and studio owner Bill Horne (known to Loronix fans from his many appearances in the ‘Guess Who’ photo competitions) recorded this session with Vinhas backing Santiago.

For many years the tapes languished on a dusty shelf in Leblon, but some years ago my grandfather Jose Ignacio was given a copy, un-mastered and straight from the tapes but so fantastic that it deserves to see the light of day for all dedicated Vinhas and Emilio fans.

The musicians’ names are long forgotten (but some Loronix fans please tell us if it’s you playing!) but are ‘feras’ in their own right.

And if this super rare session wasn’t enough, I’ve included a demo recording of Emilio Santiago that I believe was used to get his recording contract with Durval Ferreira at CID in 1975. Edson Frederico is the pianist here, drummer was probably Ronie Mesquita.

As Zeca would have said back then, Valeu, Bicho!”

exclusivamente brasil (1980) front

Hello, good evening! This is an unscheduled post. Sarah Vaughan was recently released a couple of days ago and I was waiting for a few weeks before taking this one in consideration. However, every road leads to Sarah Vaughan today. My mother came here today and showed great curiosity to hear the last, O Som Brasileiro de Sarah Vaughan. Everybody knows my mother is a great fan of Brazilian divas of the last century, but such like me; she has a very limited knowledge of international singers. I decided to take O Som de Sarah Vaughan for a spin and she got really amazed, deciding to stay additional hours until this one gets finished.

It was one of those perfect days. My mother took her way home hearing this album, naturally, my best choice for tonight. Let’s see.

This is Sarah Vaughan – Exclusivamente Brasil (1980), for Philips, featuring the guitar of Helio Delmiro, a gifted musician that I never had the chance to make before at Loronix. Helio Delmiro has a really special participation here, which includes his picture at the front cover and a whole track, 04 – Vivo Sonhando (Dreamer) (Antonio Carlos Jobim). Personnel listing was credited by Philips and features Aloysio de Oliveira as producer with arrangements by Maestro Edson Frederico. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! I am very proud to be in charge of the technology side of Musicos do Brasil: Uma Enciclopedia Instrumental, the first Brazilian music Encyclopedia devoted to instrumental music. The website was recently updated with new features and left the Beta stage. When I have an album to share with the community, the Encyclopedia is very useful, being a solid reference source. Follow this link to reach Paulinho Nogueira’s entry and read about this great master of Brazilian guitar.

The Encyclopedia says that Paulinho Nogueira was more active as a teacher than as a studio musician. I also learned that Paulinho Nogueira was a designer, an essential skill to forge his invention, the craviola, an instrument that was adopted by Luiz Bonfa on his anthological Jacaranda album. Anyway, it is better leave the discovery pleasure for you; in the meantime, Loronix delivers another great Paulinho Nogueira record never released in CD. Let’s see.

This is Paulinho Nogueira – Sambas e Marchas da Nova Geracao (1967), for RGE, with the participation of Luiz Loy Quinteto and Os 3 Moraes. Sorry, for talking about different things at this post, but I just received from our friend Warren a YouTube video that really worth to be shared with you. It is about a guy that made a not authorized commercial movie about a store using a mobile phone camera, here. You will understand why it is so great when you take a look. Anyway, Paulinho Nogueira has the accompaniment of not credit musicians, singing on a few tracks. Track 01 – Roda (Gilberto Gil / Joao Augusto) a perfect example of one of Paulinho Nogueira’s strengths, which is the way he creates a completely different version of well-known compositions of other musicians. Tracks include:

01 – Roda (Gilberto Gil / João Augusto)
02 – Menina da Agulha (Sidney Miller)
03 – O Que a Gente Quer (Paulinho Nogueira)
04 – João e Maria (Hilton Accioli / Geraldo Vandré)
05 – Sem Mais Adeus (Francis Hime / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – Quem Te Viu Quem Te Vê (Chico Buarque)
07 – Para Contribuir à Confusão Geral (Paulinho Nogueira)
08 – Canção de Não Cantar (Sergio Bittencourt)
09 – Noite dos Mascarados (Chico Buarque)

Hello, good evening! Yet another tiny record from Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira collection made available at Loronix, once again, another really worth checking release. For those who do not know this collection, Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira was published in 48 issues by Editora Abril Cultural between the years 1970 and 1972. Each issue includes a magazine with the size of a 10″ record and a 10″ record with a summary of the featured artist. It is perfect if you want get along with an artist on a single hearing. Let’s see.

This is Johnny Alf – Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira – 43 (1972), for Abril Cultural, featuring the Bossa Nova giant Johnny Alf performing his compositions and other artists performing Johnny Alf music. I said the collection is great, but the thing I like most is the magazine featuring pictures that are not easy to find, such as the one I’m making available below.


I don’t have muscles to transfer the magazine to digital format. My apologies. Perhaps one day I can have someone else working at Loronix. Tracks include:

Publicado em: Thursday, February 12, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! Here we have an album that does not need to be explained in details. Tamba Trio was one of the nicest vocal / instrumental Bossa Nova combos from the 1960’s and it is very hard to find someone that doesn’t have good feelings about these guys. This album was released in the middle of two classic and well-known Tamba Trio records, which is Tamba Trio – Tempo (1964) and Tamba 4 – We and the Sea (1967), for A&M records in the US. Thanks Jorge Mello for another nice contribution. Let’s see.

This is Tamba Trio – Tamba Trio (1966), for Philips, featuring Luiz Eca, Bebeto, Ohana and the participation of Orquestra Sinfonica do Teatro Municipal. I have been digging Google’s results for additional information about this album, but my searches were unsuccessful. I cannot explain why this album is a missing piece even in some important discographies. Anyway, there is a bad thing about this post. I forgot to transfer and include the back cover at the zl ball, which is a very important back cover written by Edu Lobo with detailed information about Tamba Trio and the new composers Caetano Veloso (05 – Quem me Dera, 11 – No Carnaval), Gilberto Gil (03 – Iemanja, 07 – Procissao) and Francis Hime (02 – Minha, 06 – Sem Mais Adeus). The back cover update will come tomorrow night. Stay tuned! Tracks include:

Guilherme Vergueiro – Guilherme Vergueiro Ao Vivo (1982)

24 07 2013

Link original: Guilherme Vergueiro – Guilherme Vergueiro Ao Vivo (1982)
Publicado em: Saturday, February 07, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I was dedicated on this writing during the last 3 hours. I made different versions using some ideas and approaches and I could not reach the results I was looking for. Now my eyes hurt, and if you have diabetes, you cannot play with your eyes. However, I cannot wait another 24 hours. I decided to write it from scratch, it is a very important post. This fantastic musician is being introduced to Loronix’s community for the first time tonight. And he is also, how can I say… a “true” Loronixer, a challenge winner that you already known using the gorgeous nickname of Pianista Sambista. Guilherme Vergueiro. Let’s see.

This is Guilherme Vergueiro – Guilherme Vergueiro Ao Vivo (1982), for Estudio Eldorado, recorded live at “International Jazz Montmartre”, Copenhagen, Denmark. It is hard to believe that I had the chance to hear this album for the first time only this week. This is really fantastic music played with passion by this quartet. I urge Loronix’s community to take Ao Vivo for a hearing and also visit Guilherme Vergueiro official website at www.guilhermevergueiro.com.br and the Pianista Sambista’s blog at http://pianeiro.blogspot.com. This album never had a CD reissue and I put a lot of energy on this transfer. Thanks Guilherme Vergueiro for the music, the respect you have to your public, the happiness and the energy. I’m making available Guilherme Vergueiro’s own biography taken from his official website. Tracks include:

I am a Brazilian who sees music as a work of art. I had all the classical training, but decided to get into the popular genre, because I have always been a deluded by Samba, Samba Canção (Brazilian ballad), Choro, Seresta and Bossa Nova. And I always been that way and behave this way since the beginning of my career in the late 60s.

Each song that I play, each performance, each recording has to be definitive. As an art we have in the living room wall throughout our lives. I like to interpret in my way and style, Brazilian music, translating the melodies, harmonies and Brazilian rhythms into the human feelings, the feelings of the Brazilian people, and for being like this I am very demanding with myself. I feel a huge responsibility every time I play the piano. Also I do not like to ever repeat myself. If I have to play the same song a myriad of times, each time has to be different, according to the day, time, era, the audience and especially my state of mind. Each day is a day, every hour is an hour. I have always to be open to what I’m feeling at the moment, open to new ideas that emerge in the middle of an interpretation, of an improvisation. I have no restrictions when I play the piano. I relate to it, we became one. My heart is the boss. Sends what I am feeling to my brain which in return sends the messages to my fingers. All of this in milliseconds. You should be very concentrated, otherwise the boat sinks. I just love the challenge, the emotion, the freedom that comes playing like that. Some pianists play with the fingers, I play with the heart.

I have infinite respect for the audience that is listening to me. My wish is to perpetuate in their hearts feelings, feelings that never will leave them. Sadness, joy, tension, density, lightness, rebellion, always truthful and sincere feelings, identifiable with the feelings and life of each. After all, every human being is equal, we all have our tragedies, struggles, loves, passions, adventures and misadventures, problems, joys, sorrows, happiness, certainty and uncertainty, insecurity and security and when we go to a concert, show, or listen to some music at home, in the car, we are actually looking for some form of relief and/or comfort to our souls, and sometimes I am the one who take responsibility for bring this relief and/or comfort to people. I feel a huge responsibility. I dive into the bottom of my soul to find the most pure and sincere sentiments so the public can leave a little of the harsh reality of life behind, and go to other dimensions, other spheres, more calm and benevolent, where love prevails, where the union really is the force, where there is peace, tranquility and serenity. I always hope for that all my appearances and/or recordings stay for ever in the heart and soul of the people. I am very careful with this, but I confess that I feel I’m still learning. That music is infinite and that learning ends only when God calls us for other missions.

But since I’m still here, (and hopefully stay for a long time), I still am always eager for the improvement of my mission here, which is to be a musician. A Brazilian musician. A Pianist. Be more patient, dedicated, conscientious and increasingly concentrated.

I pray to God to never forget me, (as He never forgot), that my inspiration and my love for others are increasingly in accordance with His teachings and that I can accomplish the task that was given to me always with more balance, wisdom, concentration, strength, responsibility, joy and much love, whether playing, composing, arranging, producing or making a documentary. (My new passion.)

In my life I already, experienced much love, joy, excitement, difficulties, betrayal, losses … but I survived. I did much good, I made many friends, (Maybe I have some enemies, but either I do not know them or I do not know that is an enemy) but I also sinned. A whole lot of sins. I had many false friends. Many women left me. But the music and the piano never. Neither the real friends. Thank God!” (Guilherme Vergueiro)

Hello, good evening! Before talking about this fantastic contribution sponsored by Jorge Mello, I would like to show an important upgrade made on Loronix Preview Center, available since yesterday night. Before this upgrade, I have to admit that our “radio” was really boring, static, with the same set of songs every day.

Things are really different now. The playlist, which is the list of songs available, is now sitting in a database, running in our dedicated server. Instead of a limited and static list, Loronix Preview Center is now recovering 35 songs, drawn randomly from a total of 353 available. The list of songs you have right now is different from mine and also different from other friends. Really great, but just a detail.

Take a look at the bottom part of the player. We have a search feature available and this is the great thing about Loronix Preview Center. It is very easy, just enter a search term and our database will return another set of songs, according to your selected criteria. You can search for an artist, a song, an album name and even a musical genre. As an example, searching the term “instrumental” makes Loronix Preview Center returns only instrumental tracks. Feel free to play with Loronix Preview Center and don’t forget to report if something does not work as it should. The new player is available here and permanently at Loronix side bar.
This is Canhoto – Um Violao Direito nas Maos do Canhoto (1974), for the legendary label Rozenblit, featuring for the first time at Loronix Canhoto da Paraiba, a true violao. I invite you to take a look at Canhoto’s entry available at Musicos do Brasil | Uma Enciclopedia with important statements of Paulinho da Viola and Jacob do Bandolim about this important but really underestimated musician. Tracks include:


Canhoto da Paraiba
Biu do Bandolim
Mario de Moraes Rego

Link original: Ernani Filho – Dois Amigos | As Musicas de Ary Barroso na Voz de Ernani Filho (1963)
Publicado em: Monday, January 19, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! Since I read Ary Barroso’s entry at Musicos do Brasil | Uma Enciclopedia, I started looking for his albums. Ary Barroso is a very important artist. but his discography is not available at Loronix the way I think it should be, no career albums are available, only tribute albums and a collaboration with Dorival Caymmi. Ary Barroso piano is unique and his compositions are part of Brazilian music heritage. He is mentioned on 173 posts at Loronix, which demonstrate his compositions were recorded by many other artists. Let’s see.
This is Ernani Filho – Dois Amigos | As Musicas de Ary Barroso na Voz de Ernani Filho (1963), for Odeon, a tribute album recorded by Ary Barroso favorite interpreter, according with Ary Barroso liner notes available at the back cover. This is really interesting. Ernani Filho started his career in 1938, recording several 78RPMs and for reasons that I could not check, he retired early, probably, just before this album, which is the only one recorded in the 12′ format and the last Ernani Filho’s record. Personnel listing is not available and Ary Barroso participation needs confirmation.

This album is here as a gift of Mauricio Gouveia, the owner of one of the coolest vinyl shops in Rio de Janeiro, Baratos da Ribeiro, in the heart of Copacabana. I urge Loronix’s community to visit Mauricio’s store following this direction, here. Tracks include:

01 – Balada da Saudade (Ary Barroso)
02 – Tufão (Ary Barroso)
03 – No Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso / Lamartine Babo)
04 – Ocultei (Ary Barroso)
05 – Maria (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
06 – Risque (Ary Barroso)
07 – Pierrot (Ary Barroso)
08 – Cantiga de Enganar Tristeza (Ary Barroso / Thiago de Mello)
09 – Já Era Tempo (Ary Barroso / Vinicius de Moraes)
10 – Inquietação (Ary Barroso)
11 – Dois Amigos (Ary Barroso)
12 – Trapo de Gente (Ary Barroso)

Hello, good evening! In the very first beginning of Loronix, Doris Monteiro was a real fever among friends discovering her music for the first time and also friends having the chance of hear her records again. Sombras says Doris Monteiro first record is a 78RPM released by Todamerica in 1951 and she remains in plenty activity, releasing albums and performing live. It is a great pleasure to bring Doris Monteiro back to Loronix first page. Let’s see.

This is Doris Monteiro – Agora (1976), for Odeon, featuring arrangements and conduction by the mighty Maestro Geraldo Vespar, another Brazilian music legend that I had the chance to meet with the help of Loronix. Doris and Maestro Geraldo Vespar are backed by a constellation of Brazilian musicians, including Sivuca, Copinha, Juarez, and many other well-known names that you can check at personnel listing below. This album is of a strange beauty and you cannot skip it. Tracks include:

Tom & Dito - Reverterio

Hello, good evening! This is the second appearance of Tom & Dito at Loronix. The first was a long time ago, in the very first beginning, one of the first albums made available here. Unfortunately, the first album is no longer available, and it was a very successful release. I had the idea to show this album when I received today a message from Thomas Fawcett, which is the owner and maintainer of a new website devoted to the music from Brazil from the 1970’s, Brazil Soul Power.

I would like to take Thomas’ introductory words and his enthusiastic definition of Brazil Soul Power. And I would like also to say that another Brazilian music resource is about to go live in less than 72 hours with full coverage at Loronix. Stay tuned and let’s read Thomas value proposition. Let’s see.

“Ola! I’ve been a fan of Loronix for a long time and wanted to share with you a web site I’ve been working on for awhile. It’s called Brazil Soul Power and tells the story of soul music in 1970’s Brazil. It features interviews with Gerson King Combo, Hyldon, Luis Vagner, Eduardo Araujo, Carlos Dafe, Uniao Black e mais. Check it out when you get a chance!”

This is Tom & Dito – Reverterio (1976), for Continental. Little I know about this album and this Duo, but they are backed by the best of breed Brazilian musicians of that time, including a surprising participation of the legendary Moacyr Silva at personnel listing and other really important musicians, such like: Mauricio Einhorn, Raymundo Bittencourt, Gilson Peranzzetta, Aurino, Helcio Milito, Marcio Montarroyos and many others. I wish a very nice weekend to everybody. Tracks include:

Gal Costa, Tom Jobim - Gabriela

Hello, good evening! I think I’m getting older very fast this year and losing my good memory for albums. I was looking for something by Maestro Antonio Carlos Jobim and I did not remember this soundtrack as Jobim’s regular career album. By the way, this post was only possible with the help of the mysterious friend and his huge and amazing collection made available to Loronix community. This is Loronix tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim years passing in 08 December 1994. Antonio Carlos Jobim will be missed forever. Let’s see.

This is Antonio Carlos Jobim – Gabriela | Trilha Sonora Original (1983), for RCA, featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim and Gal Costa, based on Jorge Amado Gabriela, Cravo & Canela novel. Gabriela should not be taken as TV Globo soup opera soundtrack released in 1975 by Som Livre, Gabriela belongs to the 1983 film, directed by Bruno Barreto and starred by Sonia Braga — the “original” 1975 Gabriela — and Marcelo Mastroianni. I did not see this film, but the soundtrack is really pleasant, featuring arrangements by Oscar Castro Neves with Tom and Gal Costa singing and performing together in a few tracks. Loronix Preview Center peak is the opening track, an instrumental tune by Jobim which alone worth the whole record. Tracks include:

1. Chegada dos Retirantes
(Tom Jobim)
Intérprete(s): Instrumental

2. Tema de Amor de Gabriela

3. Pulando Carniça

Hello, good evening! I would like to give my sincere apologies for a non-planned hiatus during the whole weekend. We are in the final stages for launching of a new website. It is not necessary to say this website is about Brazilian music and especially about Brazilian musicians. It is an amazing project, which will pay back all the effort we are putting in these final days. Stay tuned.

Speaking about this album, don’t let the appearances cheat you as I was. I always thought this record as a given reissue of the essential Antonio Carlos Jobim and Billy Blanco’s Sinfonia do Rio de Janeiro, released for the first time by Continental in 1954. In fact it is. Side A features a remastered version of the whole 1954 album. However, Continental delivers remastered cuts taken from 78rpms with very important recordings, and this is what makes this album a winner. Let’s see.

This is Tom Jobim e Billy Blanco – Serie Idolos MPB 7 (1974), for Continental, featuring a constellation of Brazilian artists performing Sinfonia do Rio de Janeiro on side A and really nice Continental 78rpm remasterings featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim music performed by Luiz Bonfa, Dick Farney, Lucio Alves, Nora Ney, Dora Lopes and Doris Monteiro. Antonio Carlos Jobim also performs in these tracks with his “Conjunto” and orchestra, as detailed on track list information below. Tracks include:


(Antonio Carlos Jobim / Billy Blanco)


Ted Moreno, Risadinha, Nelly Martins, Luely Figueiro, Albertinho Fortuna, Maysa, Jamelao, Os Cariocas

This is the third recovery of a series of albums that disappeared from Loronix discography. Some friends are asking me the reasons why they had disappeared, and in most cases, unfortunately, I cannot remember why. But what really matters is that they are now back, fresh music for those who recently joined our community and good chance for a new hearing for friends who are part of Loronix since the beginning.

Dulce Nunes is a soulful singer. Unfortunately, she recorded only 3 albums, as explained on my original text below, written in August 2006. Let’s see.

This is Dulce Nunes – Samba do Escritor (1968), for Forma. Dulce Nunes is a Brazilian singer that started her career as an actress in the 50’s. She was married with the pianist Bene Nunes, an active pianist in the 50’s. Together, they had a major participation at Bossa Nova birth, by opening their residence to important Bossa Nova artists.

Samba do Escritor is Dulce Nunes most celebrated accomplishment, featuring all 12 songs composed by Dulce in partnership with renowned Brazilian poetries and writers from that period, such as: Jorge Amado, Mario Quintana, Guimaraes Rosa, among others. Additionally, Samba do Escritor has the participation of Momento Quatro, Edu Lobo, Nara Leao, Joyce and Gracinha Leporato and also landmarks the first Egberto Gismonti engagement as arranger; actually, this is the first Egberto Gismonti record. Highly recommended. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! I was busy tonight, working on new features to Loronix, which is an update and a complete redesign of our album search application, Loronix Find it.

Publicado em: Thursday, October 09, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I’m away from home this week, but I’m decided to make two albums today, both by the legendary label Musidisc. I’m not sure I have everything set for the second. If you see this one as the first post across this Thursday, don’t worry, there will be another chance when I get back home.

Actually, this album is perfect to be at the front page for a whole week, another solid release sponsored by the owner and maintainer of AVOLTA, Jose Ignacio Neto, JIN, from the third generation of the Ignacio family, a family devoted to Brazilian music. Let’s see.

This is Don Pablo de Havana e Sua Orquestra (1960), for Musidisc. Little I know about this album, except the review provided by Jose Ignacio Neto confirming that Don Pablo de Havana is Ed Lincoln using a different name. By the way, JIN seems to have very nice connections with Brazilian music. JIN mentions another album recorded by Ed Lincoln as Don Pablo de Havana, Disco Latin. I’m 98% sure that I have this album, but I need to get back home to confirm. I hope I can get back to the final post today, meanwhile stay with Jose Ignacio Neto review on this pleasant album. Tracks include:

Ed Lincoln Goes Latin! by Jose Ignacio Neto

“Many recording artists have recorded using different names due to contractual reasons. Bob Fleming and Moacyr Silva who feature a lot on Loronix are of course the same person, but the great Ed Lincoln took it one step beyond. He told me that he loved to record under different names – a new name for each style or even for each record. He recorded as Les 4 Cadillacs, De Savoya Combo (his real name is Eduardo Lincoln De Saboia) and in the 70s and 80s countless American sounding names.

Here for this cha cha adventure he becomes Don Pablo de Havana! We can only guess at the original line up but it would probably have included Ed on piano (and bass?) and Rubens Bassini can surely be heard on bongos? Possibly, Juarez on sax and flutes.

Ed made a number of these records for Musidisc including one called Disco Latin!

The versions of Ary Barroso’s Na Baixa de Sapateiro and Aquerela do Brasil are really beautiful.

This album appears to be a reissue of part of another Musidisc LP with a cover showing a galo (cockerel) but that LP has different track listing. This was normal for Musidisc to reuse their recordings and repackage them.” JIN

Vários Artistas - Elenco Première

Hello, good morning! My sleeping strategy is completely destabilized this week. I’m working on something that requires an above the average dedication and thinking and as the last activity of my agenda, I’m completely exhausted at Loronix time. Some kind of tractor ray drags me to bed every night. I will try to use a slot during the day to update Loronix and get in touch with the community. Stay tuned, new posts can appear on not usual times this week.

This is the post I’ve been trying to accomplish since Sunday, a response to an increasing demand for authentic Bossa Nova music from the 60’s. Elenco Premiere is the 6th album released by Aloysio de Oliveira legendary Elenco Label as ME-6, a wonderful compilation with tracks taken from the first five Elenco albums, released as ME-1 until ME-5.

Elenco Premier is ME-6, the last 1963 release. These albums covers are amazing and were designed by Cesar Villela, and they have something in common. Who can tell me what it is? Tracks include:

Vinícius De Moraes & Odette Lara - Vinicius & Odette Lara

Sergio Abreu & Eduardo Abreu – Os Violoes de Sergio e Eduardo Abreu (1971)

Publicado em: Tuesday, September 16, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I’m asking myself why I did not make this post earlier. Several friends were asking for this album and I could understand why a couple of weeks ago when I took it for a spin. This duo is really magical, sublime and absolutely outstanding. The brothers Sergio and Eduardo Abreu were active during the 60’s and the early 70’s and they are considered by many the most amazing classical guitar ensemble ever. Just Google and you will understand. Decades were passed and they still have international acknowledgment. My apologies to everybody who asked for a Duo Abreu career album. Let’s see.

This is Sergio Abreu & Eduardo Abreu – Os Violoes de Sergio e Eduardo Abreu (1971), for Columbia. I never heard about a CD reissue of this album or any other Duo Abreu record. In the other hand, the Internet has plenty information about their music and I would like to recommend one of the best resources I found about Duo Abreu and Brazilian violão as well, which is the website owned and maintained by Fabio Zanon, a Brazilian musician that lead an anthological series of 26 radio programs called “A Arte do Violao”, mandatory for musicians and everybody who appreciates this wonderful instrument. I think the brothers Sergio and Eduardo Abreu are auto explanatory, I could stay here writing pages of text about their music, but is better let you with Duo Abreu. Have a good night and a solid start of another week. Tracks include:

01 – Anon | Drewries Accordes
02 – Anon | O Rouxinol
03 – Telemann | Canon (Transcr. Sergio Abreu)
04 – D. Scarlatti | K. 9 (L. 413) Pastorale (Transcr. Pujol)
05 – J.S. Bach | Prelude 3 (Vol. 1 from The Well Tempered Clavier – transcription Sergio Abreu)
06 – Scheidler | Sonata in D – I Allegro (Edited by Karl Scheitt)
07 – Scheidler | Sonata em D – II Romanze (Edited by Karl Scheitt)
08 – Sheidler | Sonata em D – III Rondo/Allegro (Edited by Karl Scheitt)
09 – F. Sor | Theme and Variations
10 – Granados | Intermezzo (from Goyescas – transcription Pujol)
11 – Rodrigo | Tonadilla – I Allegro ma non troppo/ II Minueto Pomposo
12 – Rodrigo | Tonadilla – III Allegro Vivace
13 – Albeniz | Evocacion (from Suite Iberia – Transcription Sergio Abreu)
14 – Falla | Danza Espa ola (from La Vida Breve – Transcription Pujol)

Publicado em: Monday, September 15, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I need to reach my bed early today. It is necessary to wake up very early tomorrow to visit my vet for a scheduled maintenance. I was planning another release for today, a release sponsored by Jorge Mello that requires a solid research. I was very close to my bed when I remembered another Jorge Mello contribution that would be really easy to review, which is this one, an album recorded by Luiz Eca in 1970 for Philips, produced by Roberto Menescal and – as the cover shows – tailored for the international market. Let’s see.

This is Luiz Eca – Brazil 70 (1970), for Philips. Besides Luiz Eca piano and arrangements in all tracks, little I know about this album. My Google searches did not return credits on musicians and additional details on this session. This is a Luiz Eca career album that I never heard about and we should say “Thank You!” to Jorge Mello for another fantastic addition to Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – O Cantador (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta)
02 – Andança (Danilo Caymmi / Edmundo Souto / Paulinho Tapajós)
03 – Cantiga Por Luciana (Edmundo Souto / Paulinho Tapajós)
04 – País Tropical (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
05 – Travessia (Milton Nascimento / Fernando Brant)
06 – Sá Marina (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
07 – O Sonho (Egberto Gismonti)
08 – Oferenda (Luis Eça / Lenita Eça)
09 – Se Você Pensa (Roberto Carlos / Erasmo Carlos)
10 – Zazueira (Jorge Ben “Jorge Benjor”)
11 – Juliana (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)

Baden Powell – Baden Powell (1971)

Publicado em: Thursday, September 11, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I’m late for today’s post, but it is for a very good reason. Loronix page load time was increasing daily and some friends were even with no access to Loronix. It was a critical situation, fixed by the replacement of CBox, also known as Quadradinho, for another tagboard solution. Cbox was the root cause of the problem. You should feel the difference while reading this message.

Anyway, I’m really tired and this is not the best situation to write this important post, kindly made available by the great Jorge Mello. This album was recorded by Baden Powell in Paris, just after the excellent series of three albums called Baden Powell Quartet Volumes 1, 2 and 3. This album does not have a title and you need to take it on your hands to read the back cover and understands that Baden Powell makes a tribute album for two great musicians with a strong influence of Baden’s career, which are Pixinguinha and the legendary Garoto. Baden Powell performs four renditions of each one and completes the repertoire with two compositions by his own. Let’s see.

This is Baden Powell – Baden Powell (1971), for Barclay, a tribute to Pixinguinha and Garoto, with Baden performing and singing with one of his favorite’s divas, Jeanine de Waleyne. Baden Powell is an awesome musician and there is something that really makes him different from all others, he puts passion on everything and this makes the different, especially on these renditions of two other geniuses. We should say thank you to Jorge Mello for this really nice album. Tracks include:


Baden Powell
(voice, violao)
Nelson Serra de Castro
Cesario Alvim
Silvio Silveira, Luiz Agudo

Special Guests

Jeanine de Waleyne
(voice on tracks 04, 08)
Raymond Guiot
(flute on 04)
Pierre Gossez
(sax on 02)

Track List

01 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha / João de Barro)
02 – Violão Vadio (Baden Powell / Paulo César Pinheiro)
03 – Bom de Dedo (Garoto)
04 – Naquele Tempo (Pixinguinha / Benedito Lacerda)
05 – Gente Humilde (Chico Buarque / Garoto / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – Rosa (Pixinguinha)
07 – Pausa Para Meditação (Garoto)
08 – Márcia Meu Amor (Baden Powell)
09 – Filho de Furinha (Garoto)

Laurindo Almeida – Chamber Jazz (1979)

17 05 2013

Link original: Laurindo Almeida – Chamber Jazz (1979)
Publicado em: Saturday, August 30, 2008 by zecalouro


When I spoke with Jorge Mello about my limited knowledge on the work, career and discography of Laurindo Almeida, I worried look and a piece of advice that I’m following since then, carefully listening to Laurindo Almeida albums kindly provided by Jorge Mello to our community.

My knowledge is improving, but there is a lot to know about this great musician. I am providing below Chamber Jazz liner notes, which I found that up to Chamber Jazz launching, Laurindo Almeida had already released more than 100 albums between classical and popular. Laurindo is a privileged musician and this album is very nice. Let’s see.

This is Laurindo Almeida – Chamber Jazz (1979), for Concord Records (USA), featuring a repertoire blending classical and popular music and Laurindo Almeida backed by two great musicians, especially the bassist, Bob Magnusson. As I told you, I will let you with Chamber Jazz liner notes and I wish a nice weekend to everybody. Tracks include:

Liner Notes:

Laurindo Almeida started the exodus of musicians from Brazil (and Argentina) more than 30 years ago. Now, in his early 60s, he is comfortably ensconced at his home in California’s San Fernando Valley — in Sherman Oaks, a Los Angeles suburb — and he looks back on a career which has seen almost 100 Almeida albums produced.

This one, he assures us, is different.

One reason is Almeida’s choice of material. You’ll find no contemporary pop rock tunes in this program. Nor are there any of the hundreds of dated, over-recorded standards which dominate all too many of the recorded out¬put of solo guitarists today.

Almeida chooses works which are not performed by other guitarists, a repertoire which ranges from Brazilian melodies through Chopin and Debussy.

And assisting him, with sensitivity, are Jeff Hamilton on drums and Bob Magnusson, playing upright acoustic bass.

Let’s not skip over Magnusson’s contributions. The San Diego musician, a French horn player for 12 years and, more recently, featured on bass with Sarah Vaughan and Joe Farrell’s Quartet, achieves a radically different sound with Almeida. His glisses resemble the sound of a trombone at times. Throughout this album, his contributions are enormous.

All nine selections, in addition, benefit from Almeida’s arranging skills.

Four of the nine works are Brazilian. Odeon and Turuna are from the pen of Ernesto Nazareth (1863-1937), a man whom Almeida idolized when Laurindo was a child in São Paulo. Laurindo later played with radio orchestras in Rio de Janeiro and, for a time, conducted his own band before he moved north to Los Angeles and became a valued member of Stan Kenton’s Orchestra in 1947.

J.D. San-Macdony’s Dingue Le Bangue and You And I (Você e Eu) by Vinícius de Morais-Carlos Lyra are yet other Brazilian melodies favored by Almeida here. Claude Debussy’s Claire de Lune and Frederic Chopin’s Chopin a la Breve based on one of the Polish pianist’s most engaging waltzes mesh with Bach on two others. The only American melody programmed is Melissa, a composition of Minette Allton of Los Angeles.

Unaccustomed Bach is adapted from a prelude and transformed into a Brazilian baiao; Bourree And Double is Almeida’s adaption of a violin solo, in eight movements, which classicists will recognize as Bach’s B Minor Partita.

The guitar which Almeida favors is a six-string instrument hand-crafted for him by Julius Guido of Los Angeles, a cutaway which gives Laurindo four more frets than the conventional Spanish guitar.

That’s the background on a man and his music. An extraordinary man who, for all his success through the decades, remains humble, ever-amiable and eager to deliver to the world music he considers valuable.

Chief copy editor of Billboard Magazine, Los Angeles, and author of the book, “Playback.”

Radames Gnattali – Radames Interpreta Radames (1958)

Link original: Radames Gnattali – Radames Interpreta Radames (1958)
Publicado em: Wednesday, August 27, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I don’t know how many friends are facing the same problem, but since noon, I’m not reaching some international domains, including the ones hosted at Loronix dedicated server. I did not receive reports from Loronixers and I’m afraid is only happening with me or at least with the friends that access the Internet via Velox (a ISP in Brazil).

Anyway, I’m sure I will be back to business tomorrow. Meanwhile, this album should fix me. This is the legendary Radames Gnattali LP recorded in 1958 for the legendary Todamerica label, reissued several times as Radames Gnattali e Sua Orquestra – Radames Gnattali e a Bossa Eterna, being also reissued on CD in the year of 1997.

Loronix would be nothing without the help of respected Brazilian music collectors, such like Caetano Rodrigues, which I would like to credit for Radames Gnattali e Sua Bossa Eterna, available at this link. And Jorge Mello, for making available Radames Interpreta Radames, the first Todamerica issue. Let’s see.

This is Radames Gnattali – Radames Interpreta Radames (1958), for Todamerica, featuring Radames Gnattali and Quarteto Continental – not an orchestra as credited on “Bossa Eterna” reissue – including Radames Gnattali at the piano, Pedro Vidal Ramos (bass), Ze Menezes (violao, cavaquinho), Luciano Perrone (drums) and Heitor dos Prazeres (percussion). This album is acknowledged by serious Brazilian music specialists, it brings Radames Gnattali performing 12 popular tunes of his own, in two styles, Choros on Side A and Sambas on Side B. I hope you have the same pleasure I had hearing again this beautiful Jorge Mello’s contribution. Tracks include:


Quarteto Continental

Radames Gnattali
Ze Menezes

Luciano Perrone
Pedro Vidal Ramos
Heitor dos Prazeres

Tracks include:

Carolina Cardoso De Menezes & Orlando Silveira - Honeymoon in Rio

I never imagined that a request made more than a year ago is now addressed by Loronix community after all this time, especially this album, a really hard to find record, never released in Brazil. We need to send Kudos to our friend Eric and his nice work on preparing hi-res scan covers from front and back, making also the transfer on WAV, enabling the creation of FLAC files that are growing fast in popularity after Happy Hour creation. I think it is time to publish my complete wish-list somewhere. Let’s see.

This is Carolina Cardoso de Menezes e Orlando Silveira – Honeymoon in Rio (1956), for Capitol (USA), never released in Brazil, featuring the piano of Carolina Cardoso de Menezes and the accordion of Maestro Orlando Silveira, delivering Samba and Baiao, funny translated by Capitol as “Baions”. I would like to show you the delicious liner notes written by Capital, with the whole atmosphere of this record. Tracks include:

Carolina Cardoso De Menezes & Orlando Silveira - Honeymoon in Rio_2

…Romantic Rio offers that “certain” extra in its scenic attractions… and in its highly personalized music… SAMBA, anyone?

Brazil in 1956 underwent a tremendous change with a new president, new plans for expansion and economic improvements, a new census listing the, population at 58 million and a new customs ruling which allows North Americans to visit the magic country without a visa.

Rio itself is about the size of Philadelphia and is the second largest city in South America-Buenos Aires is larger. Its hotels are superb, its restaurants first rate, its night life gay and expensive. Horse racing is popular, as is soccer, boxing, tennis and polo. Bullfighting, however, is not allowed. There are good theaters, and taxis (distinguished by special red license plates) are easily available for a few cruzeiros (it takes 50 to make a U.S.A. dollar). Brazilian food and wines are excellent, and scenery like Copacabana Beach with its sleek hotels and curving sidewalks of gorgeous hand-set mosaics, and mighty Sugar Loaf and Corcovado mountains, are as attractive as anything you could desire.

The samba and the baion characterize Brazil-and Rio-as well as any of the country’s native contributions to art. Orlando Silveira plays the true baions and pretty Carolina Cardoso de Meneses the authentic sambas in this album, recorded for Capitol in Rio with the romanticists in mind.

Make no mistake, Rio is romantic. Its music is proof.

Track List

01 – Baiao (Orlando Silveira)
02 – Na Pavuna (Carolina Cardoso de Menezes)
03 – Cabeça Inchada (Orlando Silveira)
04 – Me Leva Seu Rafael (Carolina Cardoso de Menezes
05 – Paraiba (Orlando Silveira)
06 – Cabelos Brancos (Carolina Cardoso de Menezes)
07 – Baiao da Guarda (Orlando Silveira)
08 – Atire a Primeira Pedra (Carolina Cardoso de Menezes)
09 – Que nem Jilo (Orlando Silveira)

Dorival Caymmi – Caymmi (1985)

Link original: Dorival Caymmi – Caymmi (1985)
Publicado em: Monday, August 18, 2008 by zecalouro



I received couple of messages with congratulations to Loronix tribute to Dorival Caymmi. However, I was not comfortable by missing the chance to introduce and remember Dorival Caymmi with music. I woke up this morning with a non schedule Mom’s visit and this album, by the way, a double album featuring Dorival Caymmi on the first LP with his violao and Dorival Caymmi at the second LP with Radames Gnattali. My mother ran to a store on Saturday, getting this one for our tribute. You should thank her for the initiative.

It is important to mention a strange coincidence here, which is the photo used yesterday on the tribute and the speeches of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Jorge Amado, Caetano Veloso and Carybe available at the first LP. Unfortunately, my scanner stills defective, delivering white stripes. I hope I can manage a new one tomorrow and update this post with this really amazing album. Let’s see.

This is Dorival Caymmi – Caymmi (1985), recorded by Fundacao Emilio Odebrecht to celebrate Dorival Caymmi 70th anniversary in 1985. This is not a commercial album, distributed only to Fundacao Emilio Odebrecht customers. Caymmi is 100% made of new recordings with Dorival Caymmi and his violao on the first LP and Dorival Caymmi with Maestro Radames Gnattali on the second LP. I’m confident this is what we need to make the best possible tribute to the Master.

God Bless Dorival Caymmi. Tracks include:


Dorival Caymmi
(music, voice, violao)

Radames Gnattali

(piano, arrangements)

Aloisio Didier
