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

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

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)

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)

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)

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!”

zecalouro: “Valeu! JIN!”
