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)



Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças a um amigo Anônimo ele pode ser buscado provisoriamente na forma de um magnet link. OBS : não se esqueça de deixar semeando  depois que você terminar de baixar (uma boa razão seria pelo menos 2 vezes o que você baixar!)


Luiz Eca – Laços Concerto Show (1976)

Hello, good evening! Tonight we will have a really unusual record, which is an album that I have been tracking down with Caetano Rodrigues for more than a year, placing search alerts on e-bay and regularly searching other places at the Internet. I cannot remember exactly, but I think everything started whe we identified Luiz Eca at the left with that big hair. I cannot remember also the reason why we named this album as Quarteto Lacos, as the cover shows only a trio with Luizinho Eca, Claudia Versiani and Marcos Paulo, which I think it is the same Brazilian actor Marcos Paulo. Anyway, Jorge Mello should receive all credits and compliments for sending this one from his private collection. Let’s see what we have here.

This is Lacos Concerto Show (1976), for Som Livre. Little I know about this live recording, except the reviews I read on e-bay and popsike saying it is has some killer funky fusion tracks, great electric keys, sticking percussion and cool treated wah wah guitar cuts with great scat voice. There is a quartet backing the trio of main performers, featuring Claudio Caribe, Helio Delmiro, Luizao and Marcio Montarroyos, which is probably the real Quarteto Lacos. Due some speaking between music during a live concert, it was not possible to deliver individual tracks, so you will find a single file for side A and another single file for the whole side B. Tracks include:


Main Performers

Luiz Eca
(piano, electric piano)
Claudia Versiani
Marcos Paulo

Quarteto Lacos

Claudio Caribe
Helio Delmiro
Marcio Montarroyos

Track List

01 – Makaha (Márcio Montarroyos) with Luiz Eça
02 – Odes de Ricardo Reis (Fernando Pessoa) Poema with Marcos Paulo
03 – Casa Forte (Edu Lobo) with Cláudia Versiani
04 – Laços (Edu Lobo / Geraldo Carneiro) with Cláudia Versiani
05 – Psiquiatria Em Questão (R. D. Laing) Texto with Marcos Paulo
06 – Segue o Coração (Edu Lobo / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri) with Cláudia Versiani
07 – Água e Vinho (Egberto Gismonti / Geraldo Carneiro) with Cláudia Versiani
08 – Ode Marítima (Ruy Guerra) Poema with Marcos Paulo
09 – Cais (Milton Nascimento / Ronaldo Bastos) with Cláudia Versiani
10 – Velho Arvoredo (Hélio Delmiro / Paulo César Pinheiro) with Cláudia Versiani

Pery Ribeiro - Luiz Eca - Pra Tanto Viver (1986)

Pery Ribeiro - Luiz Eca - Pra Tanto Viver (1986)-BACK

I agree with cvllos when he says this is one of the top ten albums available at Loronix and deserve a better approach. That’s what I’m doing write now, improving each aspect of this fantastic record. FLAC files are now available, hi-res cover scans from front and back cover are being included, the additional info requested last year is now available with complete personnel listing and that sad problem with track 12 – Cancao que Morre no Ar is over. I agree that classics like this one deserves a reposting, however, these albums are really hard to find in an affordable price for my resources. Anyway, it does not matter, I had a great time hearing this album today and I’m sure you will have a high quality listening experience here. Let’s see.

This is Pery Ribeiro | Luiz Eca – Pra Tanto Viver (1986), for Continental. Pery Ribeiro and Luiz Eca were really connected to each other at this great session. I’m also sure this is the best Pery Ribeiro album I have heard and probably one of the best Luiz Eca performances on recording. Take this album as a very special record; I think it never had a CD reissue, which is something hard to believe. Tracks include:


Pery Ribeiro

Luiz Eça

Luiz Alves, Zeca Assumpcao
Raphael Rabello, Jose Carlos
Wilson das Neves, Robertinho Silva, Carlinho Bala

Track List

01 – Por Causa de Você (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
02 – Chega de Saudade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Indecisão (Eduardo Prates / Alberto Gino)
04 – Curare (Bororó)
05 – Nossas Vidas (Herivelto Martins)
06 – Valsinha (Chico Buarque / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – Pare de Me Arranhar (Márcio Proença / Darci de Paulo / Flávio / Marco Aurélio)
08 – Amargura (Radamés Gnattali / Alberto Ribeiro)
09 – Pra Tanto Viver (Pery Ribeiro)
10 – De Onde Vens (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta)
11 – Oferenda (Luis Eça / Lenita Plontzinski)
12 – Canção Que Morre no Ar (Carlos Lyra / Ronaldo Bôscoli)

Luiz Eca & Victor Assis Brasil – Ao Vivo no Museu de Arte Moderna (1997)

Here we go on an album that I want to see at Loronix since the beginning. Thanks to tcisalpino for making it to our community using FLAC files to provide the best possible quality. This album was posthumously released in the year of 1997 by the label El Dorado and was recorded live at MAM, Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro. My searches were not successful to understand why we have to wait more than 20 years to have this record released. Anyway, it is not everyday an album is released featuring Luiz Eca and Victor Assis Brasil performing together. Let’s see.

This is Luiz Eca & Victor Assis Brasil – Ao Vivo no Museu de Arte Moderna (1997), for El Dorado, featuring Luiz Eca at the piano and Victor Assis Brasil at sax, performing a repertoire based on Brazilian and international standards. Definitively, this is not an album for beginners; you will have to take it for a spin several times before acquiring some intimacy. Sometimes Luiz Eca goes to a direction and Victor Assis Brasil seems to take the opposite, vice-versa. If any friend had the chance to watch this performance and has additional info about this set, feel free to use comment section to tell us something about. Thanks once again tcisalpino for providing this great album to our community. Tracks include:


Luiz Eca
Victor Assis Brasil
(sax alto)

Track List

01 – The dolphin (Luiz Eça)
02 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)
03 – Fotografia (Tom Jobim)
04 – You must believe in spring (Michel Legrand)
05 – Samba de uma nota só (Newton Mendonça / Tom Jobim)
06 – Hi-lili hilô (Bronislaw Kaper / Helen Deutch)
07 – Insensatez (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – O cantador (Nelson Motta / Dori Caymmi)
09 – The man I love (George Gershwin)
10 – Maracangalha (Dorival Caymmi)
11 – Travessia (Milton Nascimento / Fernando Brant)

Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen – Encontro Marcado (1992)

Publicado em: Wednesday, August 22, 2007 by zecalouro

This repost is been worked since 28th May 2007. Shame it on zecalouro, he took three months to realize that Caetano Rodrigues could send it to us, as he did. The repost idea started with a request from a Loronix friend who lives in Paris, France. I don’t know if I can mention his name, but he did a nice work to track down this album, even making email contact with Maria Hiort Petersen. Unfortunately, we did not exchange emails since then and I think he will be surprised with this reposting.

Encontro Marcado features Luiz Eca and Maria Petersen, in my humble opinion, one of the best Luiz Eca albums. The first version had a low bit-rate and eleven tracks, running time of 46 minutes. Caetano sent the CD version with extras, three additional tracks with running time of 67 minutes. It is a mandatory repost, now with highest bit rate and alternative FLAC files. I recommend.

This is Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen – Encontro Marcado (1992), for Line Records, recorded live at Au Bar, Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, Rio de Janeiro with musical direction of Durval Ferreira and arrangements by Luiz Eca. Maria Petersen is a Danish singer and this is her first album. Luiz Eca piano can be heard in all tracks and Maria Petersen beautiful singing accompanies Luiz Eca piano in 9 tracks. Our very good friend from Paris said Maria Petersen recorded more albums before Encontro Marcado, most of them dedicated to Brazilian music. I think it is really worth to track them down. Tracks include:

01 – Minha – Luiz Eca
02 – Chuva – Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen
03 – Brigas Nunca Mais – Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen
04 – Corcovado – Luiz Eca
05 – Imagem – Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen
06 – Summer of 42 – Luiz Eca
07 – Manha – Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen
08 – Insensatez – Luiz Eca
09 – Dolphin – Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen
10 – Meditacao – Luiz Eca
11 – Marina – Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen
12 – Stormy Weather – Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen
13 – Manha de Carnaval – Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen
14 – The Man I Love – Luiz Eca & Maria Petersen

Luiz Eça – Luiz Eça Trio (1991)

Link original: Luiz Eça – Luiz Eça Trio (1991)
Publicado em: Friday, August 17, 2007 by zecalouro

I don’t know how many friends knew this LP existence. I was introduced to this album today, made available by Caetano Rodrigues on his last set of contributions to our community. Thanks once again, Caetano! Perhaps I’m a lazy parrot and did not a good job on identifying Luiz Eca discography. This album was produced and probably sponsored by Pacifico Mascarenhas, all 20 songs available are Pacifico Mascarenhas compositions. Luiz Eca Trio was recorded in May 1991 and Luiz Eca has passed in May 1992. Probably, these are the last Luiz Eca studio recordings.

This is Luiz Eca – Luiz Eca Trio (1991), for Velas, featuring Luiz Eca (piano), Luiz Alves (bass) and Ricardo Costa (drums). The release date on some discographies shows the year of 1995. Caetano said Pacifico Mascarenhas recorded this album to help Luiz Eca with medical expenses. I think there was no reason to keep this music unreleased until 1995, as Pacifico Mascarenhas idea was helping Luiz Eca. Anyway, the clarification and additional information on Luiz Eca Trio should come from our community. Tracks include:


Luiz Eca
(piano, musical direction, executive direction, arrangements)

Luiz Alves
Ricardo Costa

Pacifico Mascarenhas

Track List

01 – Por Que (Pacifico Mascarenhas)
02 – Saudade de um Fox-Trot (Pacifico Mascarenhas)
03 – Quanto Tempo (Pacifico Mascarenhas)
04 – O Vento que Soprou (Pacifico Mascarenhas)
05 – Pode Ser (Pacifico Mascarenhas)

Finally arrived. It is everything I was wondering to be. You don’t need to clean your glasses or check if your monitor is having problems, what you read is what you will hear, Luiz Eca and Bill Evans performing together at Chiko’s Bar, Rio de Janeiro, 1980.

This is Luiz Eca & Bill Evans – Ao Vivo no Chiko’s Bar (1980), for Loronix. I never heard about Bill Evans in Brazil and I have to say many thanks to JustBeto for making his K-7 tape available and Luiz Harding for the excellent remastering to digital format. The tape features an hour of music, including the guest appearance of Leny Andrade, singing Wave and some other nice things, such as Luiz Eca and Bill Evans talking to each other and some Eca improvisations using the acute keys of the piano.

JustBeto said to do not separate tracks to provide the full experience, but I decided to split the concert in 14 tracks with the whole concert. Applauses, conversations and piano improvisations are in the end of each track and the splits did not left a second of music out. Anyway, thanks JustBeto and Luiz. Some tracks were identified by the parrot in charge of this website, but I decided to take no risks making available the 14 tracks with no names.


Este disco pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma e Elenco do Martoni. O Martoni fez o trabalho de identificação das faixas a partir dos comentários. Copio abaixo do blog dele:

Tracks (titles as given in the comments):
