Hello, good evening! I was looking for something at Amazon.com this weekend when by coincidence, I found this album labeled “This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer.” I believe that Balancamba was the last Lucio Alves album commercially available. This is sad. We know these reissues are forged by the hard work of people who Love Brazilian music as we do. I’m speaking specifically about Caetano Rodrigues and Charles Gavin, two great friends of our community, to whom I dedicate this record, which will continue his public career — on very modest basis by the way — here at Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Lucio Alves – Balancamba (1963) for Elenco as ME-2, the second album released by the anthological and very important Brazilian label. Balancamba blends the words “balanco” and “samba” and makes justice to this title. Lucio Alves’s unique voice and sophisticated timing delivers a repertoire with compositions by Ronaldo Boscoli and Roberto Menescal, which is also here (probably with a Conjunto…). I was wondering about the duo excitement when working with the great master in a whole record… And to close the golden pot, Maestro Carlos Monteiro de Souza takes care of arrangements and conduction. I think it is time to stop. Lucio Alves does not need to be introduced. Tracks include:

01 – Balançamba
02 – Rio
03 – Tetê
04 – Dan-cha-cha-cha
05 – Branca Paz
06 – Negro
07 – Ah Seu Eu Pudesse
08 – Nós e o Mar
09 – O Barquinho
10 – Além da Imaginação
11 – Errinho à Toa
12 – Lágrima Primeira

(*) all tunes by Roberto Menescal and Ronaldo Boscoli.

Hello, good evening! Today we will make a required upgrade on a very important Dolores Duran tribute LP recorded by Lucio Alves in 1960. Several tributes were made since Dolores Duran passing in 1959, and I’m sure this one is my favorite. Lucio Alves is backed by a dream team, delivering his unique interpretation and also putting his heart on each tune. If you are new to Dolores Duran or Lucio Alves, this is a perfect start. You cannot miss. Let’s see.

This is Lucio Alves – … Interpreta Dolores Duran (1960), for Odeon, presented here by the 1975 Coronado Odeon reissue. Personnel listing changes on each reissue and I’m presenting here the one I think is the corrected one, informed by the legendary Aramis Millarch liner notes, made available below and also inside the music. Personnel listing features Baden Powell, Luiz Carlos Vinhas, Chiquinho do Acordeon, Ed Lincoln (playing bass), among others. Tracks include:

Aramis Millarch Liner Notes

Quando Aloysio de Oliveira convidou Lúcio Alves para gravar o lp “A Noite de Meu Bem, a grande Dolores Duran (Aliléia Silva da Rocha, 7 de julho de 1930-24 de outubro de 1959) havia falecido há poucas semanas. Lúcio não só doou à mãe de Dolores, dona Josefa Silva da Rocha, a renda que teria direito como intérprete, mas, principalmente, deu de si, a interpretação mais sensível, de maior feeling, à maravilhosa obra de Dolores.

Para Lúcio Ciribelli Alves, mineiro de Cataguazes, do dia 28 de janeiro de 1925, a música de Dolores Duran sempre foi muito especial e significativa. Junto com Dick Farney e Johnny Alf, Lúcio é daquela geração de precursores na renovação de nossa música popular, que só viria eclodir em fins de 1958, com o rótulo de Bossa Nova. Lúcio sempre procurou um estilo moderno de interpretação, já no seu início como profissional, no distante ano de 1941, quando formou o historicamente importante grupo “Os Namorados da Lua”. Como compositor, com Haroldo Barbosa, criava em 1943, a marcante “De Conversa em Conversa”, até hoje, em nossa opinião, uma das músicas mais perfeitas de nosso cancioneiro.

Lúcio foi sempre um cantor Bossa Nova e por isso seu grande amigo e produtor Aloysio de Oliveira tinha toda razão, ao escrever na contracapa do lp “A Noite de Meu Bem”, agora, em boa hora reeditado, que “na verdade Lúcio Alves foi um dos grandes iniciadores da nova escola. Entretanto na ocasião não havia ainda receptividade, atmosfera adequada para uma forma de expressão que só mais tarde iria ser descoberta”.

Gravado com amor, emoção e razão, as 12 faixas deste elepe permanecerão enquanto houver sensibilidade nas pessoas. À voz personalíssima de Lúcio Alves soma-se ao talento de um grupo de excelentes instrumentistas — pianista Luis Carlos Vinhas, acordeonista Chiquinho, violonista Baden Powell, baterista Juquinha e baixistas Gabriel e Ed Lincoln — na interpretação dos sambas-canções de Dolores, alguns em parceria com seus amigos Ribamar, Edison Borges, Antonio Carlos Jobim e o próprio Lúcio Alves (“Vou Chorar”), que, com emoção, diz as palavras que fazem com que nossos olhos umedeçam, lembrando Dolores, a moça que só queria a paz de criança dormindo.

Pois eu sei que prá sempre
Eu irei te lembrar
E por mais que eu não queira
Vou chorar

Track List

01 – Idéias Erradas (Dolores Duran / Ribamar)
02 – A Noite do Meu Bem (Dolores Duran)
03 – Estrada do Sol (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
04 – Castigo (Dolores Duran)
05 – Noite de Paz (Dolores Duran)
06 – Vou Chorar (Lúcio Alves / Dolores Duran)
07 – Por Causa de Você (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
08 – Fim de Caso (Dolores Duran)
09 – Pela Rua (Ribamar / Dolores Duran)
10 – Quem Sou Eu (Ribamar / Dolores Duran)
11 – Solidão (Dolores Duran)
12 – Canção da Tristeza (Édson Borges / Dolores Duran)

Lucio Alves – Lucio Alves (1975)

I think people of my generation in Brazil already know Lucio Alves or at least heard about him. I have to admit that before starting Loronix I knew only the basis, I didn’t know, for instance, that Joao Gilberto always took his albums to hear with Lucio Alves, as a disciple getting the approval of his master. I became obsessed by Lucio Alves on LPs, compactos, 78 RPMs, no matter how. I believe Loronix provides moments of discovery and a real opportunity to understand a lot of Brazilian. Every day I learn a new thing with Loronix and Loronix does not belong to me, Loronix belongs to everybody. Rest assured that Loronix belongs to us, to our community as a whole. This is the last Lucio Alves career LP, the first over ten years, an inexplicable interval. Let’s see.

This is Lucio Alves – Lucio Alves (1975), for RCA Victor, featuring tunes with women names, probably one of those Aloysio de Oliveira ideals, in charge of musical and studio direction. Actually, this album title is Lucio Alves e (the track list), vestidas por Chico de Moraes, in charge of the arrangements, but the title won’t fit here. I hope all of you have a really nice week that starts this Monday and thanks for being part of this community. Tracks include:

01 – Mulher (Custódio Mesquita / Sady Cabral) Ana Luisa (Tom Jobim)
02 – Juraci (Antônio Almeida / Ciro de Souza)
03 – Florisbela (Antônio Nássara / Eratóstenes Frazão)
04 – Maria (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto)
05 – Rosa (Pixinguinha)
06 – Izabela (Primeira Namorada) (Billy Blanco)
07 – Januária (Chico Buarque)
08 – Risoleta (Raul Marques / Moacir Bernardino)
09 – Ligia (Tom Jobim)
10 – Dolores (Alberto Ribeiro / Marino Pinto / Arlindo Marques Júnior)
11 – Helena Helena Helena (Alberto Land)
12 – Um Nome de Mulher (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes) Final Mulher (Custódio Mesquita / Sady Cabral)

Doris Monteiro e Lucio Alves no Projeto Pixinguinha (1978)-FRONT

Doris Monteiro e Lucio Alves no Projeto Pixinguinha (1978)-BACK

It has been a long time since we made an album by Lucio Alves and also by Doris Monteiro, and here we go addressing two issues on a single post, releasing an album with both artists as main performers. I always though this album was a live recording of their participation at Projeto Pixinguinha, however, this is a studio LP, featuring the repertoire of the series of concert made at Projeto Pixinguinha, a Brazilian cultural event that started in 1977 and ended in 1997. During this period, more than three hundred concerts were performed and everything was recorded by Funarte, which is today in the process of transferring everything to digital, almost 5,000 songs. I hope one day these concert recordings be available to public.

This is Doris Monteiro e Lucio – Doris e Lucio no Projeto Pixinguinha (1978), for Odeon. I think I don’t need to say more, Doris Monteiro and Lucio Alves are one of the most requested artists by Loronixers and I’m sure this album should make the day of many friends. Tracks include:

Personnel

Edson Aladim
(drums)
Lito
(bass)
Cesar Mota
(guitar)
Ricardo Albano Junior
(piano)

Track List

01 – Mudando de Conversa (Maurício Tapajós / Hermínio Bello de Carvalho) with Lúcio Alves / Doris Monteiro

Lucio Alves – Lucio Alves, Sua Voz Intima, Sua Bossa Nova, Interpretando Sambas em 3-D (1959)

Someone should tell tcisalpino that I don’t have 20 years. It is dangerous, especially with a favorite of us, Lucio Alves. That’s what tcisalpino delivers today, a major update on a very hard to find original vinyl issue. Additionally, I’m delivering a video, with 9 minutes runtime, featuring Lucio Alves and Trio LM (which I never heard about) at Ensaio, TV Cultura, kindly sent by Pedro Mendes. You can reach Pedro anytime at pmend44@hotmail.com. He is opened for trading.

This is Lucio Alves – Lucio Alves, Sua Voz Intima, Sua Bossa Nova, Interpretando Sambas em 3-D (1959), for Odeon, the first album recorded by Lucio Alves in the 12-inch format. I will keep my first writing this time. Lucio Alves is really nice, thanks tcisalpino. Do not miss the video.

First writing:

On my searches to prepare the first Lucio Alves release, TioSamba, Musica Americana em Bossa Nova, I read that Antonio Carlos Jobim said that Lucio Alves was a singer ahead of his time, additionally, Lucio Alves was the first person to listen to Joao Gilberto LPs, taken by the own Joao as soon as they get finished.

Two strong statements from two legends. TioSamba was really nice, but when I took this one for a try, I confess that these statements are not exaggerated. In my humble opinion, Lucio Alves is one of the greatest Brazilian. I don’t know why, his singing his really captivating. Do not ask me what is a Samba in 3-D, perhaps some mania in the late 50’s. Lucio Alves is backed by orchestra, directed and conducted by Lyrio Panicali. Tracks include:

01 – Lá Vem a Baiana (Dorival Caymmi)
02 – Se Acaso Você Chegasse (Lupicínio Rodrigues / Felisberto Martins)
03 – Boa Noite Amor (José Maria de Abreu / Francisco Matoso)
04 – Nem Eu (Dorival Caymmi)
05 – Se Todos Fossem Iguais a Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – Menino de Braçanã (Luis Vieira / Arnaldo Passos)
07 – Agora É Cinza (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide” / Armando “Marçal”)
08 – Laura (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / João de Barro)
09 – Estrada do Sol (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
10 – Conceição (Dunga / Jair Amorim)
11 – Beija-me (Roberto Martins / Mário Rossi)
12 – Ninguém Me Ama (Fernando Lobo / Antônio Maria)

Yesterday, I found this nice video at Balaio do Carl Ole, an impossible to miss and frequently updated friend of Loronix. Looking inside, I found also production credits to adesign, which is an affiliate company of bossa-brasileira.blogspot.com. Let’s ask the folks of adesign and bossa-brasileira to show us more gems like this one.

This is Lucio Alves – A Vizinha do Lado (1960), an excerpt of a film produced by JB Tanko, the legendary producer from one of the most successful ages of Brazilian movie film. We have a delicious two minutes video with Lucio Alves and some shots dedicated to the great comedian Ze Trindade.

I sent earlier today this film to Caetano Rodrigues, Mecenas and Cravinho, Jorge Cravo. People were also talking about the wonderful book written by Cravinho, O Cacador de Bolachas Perdidas, which I’m placing a purchase link bellow to Submarino. Don’t miss Cravinho’s book, it is delicious, a lifetime book that you will ready as fresh over and over again.

Hope uEnjoy!

Publicado em: Saturday, February 24, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, Good Night! This is a special post, a special request of the great Caetano Rodrigues. I’m very happy to address this request with Lucio Alves, a special artist to Caetano, his friends and several Loronixers. Let’s hear the story behind this post.

October, 19th, 2006 landmarks the first time Caetano Rodrigues get to known Loronix. Caetano did not reach Loronix by accident; he was referenced by a friend, Mecenas Salles. Caetano and Mecenas have a common friend that I also want to introduce with this post, the Legendary Jorge Cravo also know as Cravinho, one of the greatest vinyl collectors in Brazil. Mecenas, Cravinho and Caetano are enthusiasts of Lucio Alves, having the privilege to have Lucio Alves as their friends when Lucio was here on Earth.

zecalouro is proud of being the connection between Caetano and his friends Mecenas and Cravinho. Mecenas and Cravinho do not have this rare Lucio Alves album in their collection and Caetano had the great idea to send this record using Loronix. Thanks for this opportunity, Caetano and thanks also Mecenas to introduce Caetano to Loronix and Cravinho for providing Bossa Nova fans with a amazing book.

Cravinho is the author of a book, Cacador de Bolachas Perdidas, which I had the opportunity to read a couple of years ago and read again today with the same enthusiasm. Cravinho is the kind of guy that was in contact with several important moments and artists of Brazilian music and his book is a treasure, full of nice stories, including a chapter dedicated to Lucio Alves that I will not tell here to do not spoil your reading. I’m sure that you will be purchasing his book though Loronix, just click on image book to be directed to submarino.com.

This is Lucio Alves – A Bossa e Nossa (1960), for Philips. Self-explanatory, a missing piece on my discography and also for Caetano friends, not for now one. I’m happy to have delayed this release, this album was sent by the bossanovadreamer a couple of weeks ago and I had that not explainable feeling that I had to save it for later. I was right. Thanks bossanovadreamer. Tracks include:

01 – Viva Meu Samba (Billy Blanco)
02 – Dindi (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
03 – Joãozinho Boa Pinta (Geraldo Jacques / Haroldo Barbosa)
04 – Baladinha Lítero-musical (Mário Lago)
05 – A Vizinha do Lado (Dorival Caymmi)
06 – Nova Ilusão (Luis Bittencourt / José Menezes)
07 – O Amor e a Rosa (Pernambuco / Antônio Maria)
08 – Cheiro de Saudade (Luis Antônio / Djalma Ferreira)
09 – O Nosso Olhar (Sergio Ricardo)
10 – Casinha Pequena (Lúcio Alves)
11 – Samba Triste (Baden Powell / Billy Blanco)
12 – Samba da Minha Terra (Dorival Caymmi)

PS.: Just received this message from Mecenas at Sambossa 5 post, it is from Mecenas Salles, thanks Mecenas

Zeca, fico feliz por ter sido responsável em apresentar o Loronix ao Caetano. Acabo de sair do telefone com ele que me disse que você vai postar o LP de bossa do Lucio Alves. O Cravinho cobra diariamente e eu é quem vou baixar para ele.
Abraço

Thanks for everything, Caetano.

Lucio Alves – Tio Samba – Musica Americana em Bossa Nova (1961)

Publicado em: Saturday, October 28, 2006 by zecalouro

Since Lucio Alves was mentioned at Caetano Rodrigues challenge, let’s stay on the mood and approach this great singer with Lucio Alves – Tio Samba – Musica Americana em Bossa Nova (1961). Lucio was of a great importance to Brazilian music, influencing all renowned artists that have started in the 50’s and 60’s.

Lucio started his career earlier, in the 30’s, being active until mid 70’s. Just to understand how influent was Lucio Alves, I will pick up the first paragraph of AMG bio available here: “Lúcio Alves was a great interpreter of Brazilian music. Tom Jobim said he is “a formidable singer, he deserved the highest popular acclamation, but paid the price of being an artist ahead of his time.” João Gilberto was a declared fan of his singing interpretation and his vocal and harmonic arrangements and Alves made some arrangements for Gilberto’s Garotos da Lua and Gilberto lived with him at Raul Pompéia street in Rio. When Chega de Saudade was released, the first person to whom Gilberto showed the album was Alves.” Tracks include:

01 – Sem Cessar (All The Way) (Heusen / Cahn / version: Fred Jorge)
02 – A Sobrinha da Judite (On The Sunny Side Of The Street) (Fields / McHugh / version: Aloysio de Oliveira)
03 – Murmurando (Whispering) (Schonberger / Coburn / Rose / version: Haroldo Barbosa)
04 – Coisas Que Lembram Você (These Foolish Things) (Strachey / Marvell / Link / version: Aloysio de Oliveira)

Carlos Lyra, Lais, Lucio Alves, Silvinha Telles, Vinicius de Morais e Conjunto Oscar Castro Neves – Bossa Nova Mesmo (1960)

1 09 2011

When zecalouro received this LP, came to his mind that it was another various artists or compilation. Big mistake, perhaps this can be considered one of the first Bossa Nova albums. Produced by Aloisio de Oliveira and arranged by Oscar Castro Neves, this LP was recorded with one purpose in mind, to introduce Bossa Nova and its main artists to the public.

O Conjunto de Oscar Castro Neves plays in all tracks. This also landmarks the first time Vinicius de Moraes puts his voice on a record in his career. Just to the records, this LP features Conjunto de Oscar Castro Neves, Carlos Lyra, Lais, Lucio Alves, Sylvia Telles and Vinicius de Moraes.

There is only one thing that disturbs zecalouro, the cover. How should they make a record to introduce such a bright and happy music with such a dark and serious artwork? Tracks include:

01 – So em Teus Bracos – Oscar Castro Neves (Antonio Carlos Jobim)
02 – Pela Luz dos Olhos Teus – Vinicius de Moraes (Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Eu Tambem Preciso de Voce – Oscar Castro Neves (Sylvia Telles)
04 – Obrigada meu Bem – Sylvia Telles (Sylvia Telles / Aloysio de Oliveira)
05 – Chora tua Tristeza – Oscar Castro Neves (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini)
06 – Com Voce – Sylvia Telles (Julio Hungria)
07 – Patinho Feio – Lais (Oscar Castro Neves / Dolores Duran)
08 – Bim Bom – Oscar Castro Neves (Joao Gilberto)
09 – Tem do de Mim – Carlos Lyra (Carlos Lyra)
10 – Menina Feia – Lucio Alves (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini)
11 – Meditacao – Oscar Castro Neves (Antonio Carlos Jobim / Newton Mendonca)
