Hello, Good Evening! Here we go on another Caetano Rodrigues contribution, a solo LP by an artist that always delivers wonderful results on everything he makes, from participations as trombonist to more complex accomplishments as arranger on other artists albums. Astor Silva is really extraordinary.

This is Astor Silva e Sua Orquestra – Samba… So Samba! (1963), for Columbia. This is the first Astor Silva album at Loronix and his discography is huge, releasing more than 10 LPs as Astor Silva and other additional albums using other names, such like Lord Astor and as member of the group Lord Astor e Seus Dixiedrolls. I will be tracking down more Astor Silva solo releases and we will have more to come in a near future, he was a fantastic musician and deserves a stronger approach at Loronix. Tracks include:

01 – Mulata Assanhada (Ataulfo Alves)
02 – Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Só Danço Samba (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Saudade (Emílio Batista / Ruy Rey)
05 – Olhou Pra Mim (Ed Lincoln / Silvio César)
06 – Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
07 – Meditação (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
08 – La Forcata (N. Oliviero / R. Ortolani)
09 – Chora Tua Tristeza (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini)
10 – Doce Amargura (Ti Guardero Nel Cuore) (M. Ciorciolini / R. Ortolani / N. Oliviero)
11 – Eu Nasci no Morro (Ary Barroso)
12 – O Que o Samba Tem (Othon Russo / Astor Silva)

As Melhores Mulheres – (Cantadas por um Homem Qualquer ou Qualquer Homem) (1957)

Really, really wise of Caetano when he sent this album with a note: “to be released at Saturday night”. I did not understand why it should be released on this specific day, but today Caetano told me: “This is to celebrate Mother’s day, stupid Parrot”. Very wise of Caetano, he is right, I didn’t make this easy association…

Although people in different countries celebrate Mother’s Day on different days of the year, Loronix and Caetano Rodrigues would like to dedicate this beautiful album to all Mother’s in the world.

This is As Melhores Mulheres (Cantadas por um Homem Qualquer ou Qualquer Homem) (1957), for Odeon. In spite of the big title, I did not write the artist or group name, however, Caetano thinks – and I agree with him – this is a male choir lead by Aloysio de Oliveira since his voice can be heard clear in some tracks. As Melhores Mulheres was released in 1957, before Bossa Nova and feature arrangements from Maestro Antonio Carlos Jobim and Orlando Silveira, which makes this album a sought after vinyl collectors piece. Thanks once again for this great music and also for Mother’s Day surprise in the last minute. Tracks include:

01 – Maria (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
02 – Helena Helena (Antônio Almeida / Constantino Silva “Secundino”)
03 – Aurora (Mário Lago / Roberto Roberti)
04 – Zazá (Joel de Almeida)
05 – Rosa Morena (Dorival Caymmi)
06 – Emília (Haroldo Lobo / Wilson Batista)
07 – Marina (Dorival Caymmi)
08 – Dolores (Arlindo Marques Júnior / Marino Pinto / Alberto Ribeiro)
09 – Ai Que Saudades da Amélia (Ataulfo Alves / Mário Lago)
10 – Magdalena (Ari Macedo / Airton Amorim)
11 – Juraci (Antônio Almeida / Ciro de Souza)
12 – Um Nome de Mulher (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)


Este disco já tinha sido publicado no Loronix com outra capa (abaixo) e com o título “Dançando com as Garotas” – Os Guanabara Boys. Portanto, também já foi publicado aqui nos Órfãos do Loronix.

Marisa & Moacyr Silva e Seu Conjunto – Convite a Musica Nr. 2 (1958)

Caetano Rodrigues will think I’m going nuts with this post, we spent almost an hour discussing alternatives to reach a different decision, but a last minute technical problem was identified and the agreed album needs to be postponed. I’m wondering if you think we are crazy and if you think we are crazy you are 100% correct, it is really insane to spend a lot of time to decided between gold and diamonds since all Caetano collection is great from the start to end. We love the work we do at Loronix and the time we spent on decision-making is on the benefit of everybody. Sorry Caetano, this busy parrot will settled a little down after our celebration.

This is Marisa & Moacyr Silva e Seu Conjunto – Convite a Musica Nr. 2 (1958), for Copacabana, the best of both words album blending instrumental tracks provided by the legendary Brazilian sax tenor Moacyr Silva and the renowned Brazilian singer Marisa, also known as Marisa Gata Mansa. Convite a Musica Nr. 2 follows Nr. 1, already available at Loronix and in my humble opinion is very much better than the first one.

I learned a lot of new things with this album, I didn’t know that Marisa was part of Moacyr Silva e Seu Conjunto, performing together on nightclubs, such as the legendary Vogue, a feel blocks away from my place. It is funny, I miss Vogue nightclub and I never had the chance of being there, and actually, I don’t think I was born when Vogue was opened for business. I also learned that Moacyr Silva was influenced by the American Jazz sax player Coleman Hawkins, at least is what Lucio Rangel says at liner notes. That’s it. Thanks Caetano for Moacyr Silva, Marisa and Conjunto, featuring Chaim Lewak, Maurilio Santos, Edmundo Maciel, Raul Gagliardi and Hanestaldo Americo. Tracks include:

Severino Araujo e Sua Orquestra Tabajara – 12 Chorinhos de Severino Araujo (1960)

Let’s start great today, showing a unique album sent by Caetano Rodrigues and a longtime request from several Loronixers. Maestro Severino Araujo and Orquestra Tabajara made their rendition to the choro genre delivering a blend of choro with big band, on a really delightful set. Let’s check.

This is Severino Araujo e Sua Orquestra Tabajara – 12 Chorinhos de Severino Araujo (1960), for Continental. I was making some research on choro and now I understand something very important, the term “Chorinho” is not well received by Choro fans, thay say chorinho is something different, the choro genre with lyrics. This album does not have lyrics; it is pure instrumental music with Maestro Severino Araujo and his orchestra at their peak. Caetano asks Loronixers to pay special attention to the tracks that he likes most, Mirando-te and Um Chorinho pra Voce. Truly beautiful indeed. Thanks once again Caetano for an album that I never heard such like before. Tracks include:

01 – Um Chorinho Pra Você (Severino Araújo)
02 – Um Chorinho na Aldeia (Severino Araújo)
03 – Um Chorinho Em Montevideo (Severino Araújo)
04 – Puladinho (Severino Araújo)
05 – Oh Clarinete Gostoso (Severino Araújo)
06 – Um Chorinho Em Pinhal (Severino Araújo)
07 – Um Chorinho Delicioso (Severino Araújo)
08 – Mirando-te (Severino Araújo / Aldo Cabral)
09 – Pensando Em Você (Severino Araújo)
10 – Espinha de Bacalhau (Severino Araújo)
11 – Um Chorinho Para Clarinete (Severino Araújo)
12 – Um Chorinho Em Cabo Frio (Severino Araújo)

Hello, Good Evening! We are in the middle of Loronix 1st Anniversary, May, 12. Several things happened today and I’m very happy with what I’ve been reading on personal emails, comments and CBox, also known as “Quadradinho”. Let me highlight the public ones, asking your attention for it, as follows:

1) New amazing comment at Antonio Carlos Jobim 80 anniversary tribute – A anonymous Loronixer wrote in the middle of yesterday night a very detailed comment with lots of unknown facts about Antonio Carlos Jobim & Frank Sinatra lost tape. It seems he is very connected with what happened at that time, probably taking part of everything. Do not miss it, comments section of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Frank Sinatra – The Lost Tape (1969),here.

2) Survey Winner has replied with the magic number – We have a winner of Caetano Rodrigues Bossa Nova book, his name is Lemmuel Cabrera, living in the United States. Look how great Lemuel is holding a Cockatoo. Let’s celebrate the lucky winner.

3) I have been receiving sincere and touchy birthday message from several friends and I want to hightligh a comment made a couple of hours ago at the fantastic Caetano Rodrigues contribution Brazilian Jazz Quartet. It was an anonymous post, but really made my day and I want to urge Loronixers to read it, just check the comment section of the post bellow or click here to go.

4) All Cbox friends – Thanks a million. Friends at CBox made a strong feedback on 1st anniversary today and I want to say that I cannot go there to reply today. I’m afraid of crying and also spend all night long writing back to everybody. I love you friends at CBox and I love Loronixers all around the worlds.

That’s it. Now it is time to go back to work and take care of the music. The music never stops at Loronix and Caetano’s contributions are making a row besides me. I cannot decide now which one to make and you will need to wait half hour to make it.

Thanks everybody!
