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)

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

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)

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)

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

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)

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.

Luiz Eça is really a great artist; I think everybody likes him, he is one of the few artists that I never knew someone who dislike. Everybody likes Luiz Eca and few friends are neutral to him. I’m happy to show Loronixers an album arranged and conduced by Luiz Eça with Quinteto Villa-Lobos, which is a classical music quintet that has been together since 1962 and you probably know by their participation on 5 na Bossa with Tamba Trio, Nara Leao and Edu Lobo.

This is Quinteto Villa-Lobos e Luizinho Eca – Vanguarda (1972), for Odeon, arranged and conduced by Luiz Eça and directed by Maestro Lindolfo Gaya. Quinteto Villa-Lobos is Carlos Rato (flute), Braz Limonge (oboe), Gonzaga Carneiro (clarinet), Carlos Gomes (trompa) and Airton Barbosa (fagote). Tracks include:

Hello, Good Night! I had a full day of working, this time, dedicated 100% to Loronix. zecalouro has the energy and runs through ideas. Gimme a nice idea and you will make my day and also get a happy friend. Good ideas works like a jet propulsion turbine for me, I cannot stop until reaching a level of comfort that the idea is viable and the resources to make it working are available. Stay tuned; the forthcoming days will bring exciting news to our community.

Let’s go straight to a great Caetano Rodrigues release. Actually, if you look bellow, you will see an awesome Samba Jazz record provided by Caetano that nobody has already share thoughts about it, with the exception of g picanco and myself. Gentleman, comments are an essential piece. If nobody places comments we cannot evaluate if we are on the right or wrong track. Comments are open to everybody and available to address any doubt or difficulty on it.

This is Luiz Eca e Radames Gnattali – Os 6 Mais numa Imagem Barroca (1968), for CBS, probably another Luizinho Eca LP unknown for many friends. This record is really inquisitive, on a first sight I tought it was recorded live in Minas Gerais, just taking in consideration the cover reproduction. However, we have a studio album here, with Luiz Eca and Radames Gnattali playing cravo on top of a popular repertoire by Chico Buarque, Jonny Alf, Dori Caymmi, Sidney Miller and Milton Nascimento. This record was kindly sent by ClaudiaB from Cantos e Encantos and has Helcio Milito in charge of production. Tracks include:

I think everybody will be surprised to see this post, supposed to be available at the next Caetano Rodrigues MD transfer and anticipated by zecalouro, lucky parrot that found this vinyl for less than a glass of tea on his last hunt at the old vinyl stores in Copacabana. Let’s see what happens. Maybe I’m wrong, instead of excited by a unknown release, everybody would know it, but don’t throw tomatoes at zecalouro, please. I’m curious.

This is Luiz Eca & Jerzy Milewski Ensemble – Duas Suites Instrumentais de Luiz Eca (1988), produced by Nestle, Brasil. This album was never commercially available; it was produced by Nestle Brazil for a marketing campaign, that’s why I think it is widely unknown outside Brazil. Duas Suites Instrumentais de Luiz Eca, features two Eca compositions, one for each side. Jerzy Milewski is a Polish violin player and also producer of this LP. Tracks include:

PersonnelLuiz Eca
Jerzy Milewski
Luizao Alves

This LP was recorded in 1970, Brazil and besides this info and personnel listing, everything else is uncertain.

This is Luiz Eca & Sagrada Familia – Onda Nova do Brasil (1970), for Lazarus, Mexico (1978). It is amazing that this LP, recorded in Rio de Janeiro, 1970, featuring large and wonderful personnel on the set was release eight years after recorded. I spoke with Caetano about this gap, but we could not make any further research on this. I invite you to have a try and bring more info; this LP is very good and ahead of its time, full of nice experiments. Tracks include:

Beto Kessel, The Ambassador, asked today for Luiz Eça – Triangulo Trio (1983), one of the albums recorded by Luiz Eca and the bass player Luiz Alves as a trio. It’s already available at Loronix and Beto is probably having a good time with it, do not miss it, here. I have some Luiz Eca videos send by a Loronixer and I think this is a wonderful opportunity to show more of them. Additionally, I found this LP, from the same period of Triangulo Trio that is also a nice pick.

This is Luiz Eça – Luiz Eça (1984), for Carmo. On a very strange coincidence, all the LPs I have available to be the last post of the day have a black cover. I decided for this one taking in consideration the video, as I said. This self titled LP features Luiz Eca (piano, synthesizers), Robertinho Silva (drums) and Luiz Alves (bass). Robertinho Silva is a great drummer and a great character that I had the chance to meet several times, but it was a very long time ago.

The music video features another performance at Jazz Brasil show (1991) with Luiz Eça, Luiz Alves and Lilian Carmona (drums) with Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso). Tracks include:

01 – Semelhança (Luis Eça)
02 – O Homem (Luis Eça)
03 – Mestre Bimba (Luis Eça)
04 – Imagem (Luis Eça)
05 – Reencontro (Luis Eça)

I sent this LP for a test drive to a friend he like it very much, not any given friend, but a serious fan of Luiz Eca. After this experience, I did not make it at Loronix and just forget to share. In the couple of days, some signals were sent to zecalouro to remind it. Caetano Rodrigues spoke about it, a couple of days ago and yesterday I received a wonderful gift from a friend, which I’m making available just a piece of it as a music video at the end of this post. Videos of Luiz Eca performances are really hard to find and I’m happy to have one to show Loronixers.

This is Luiz Eca – Antologia do Piano (1976), for Philips, an instrumental piano only LP with Luiz Eca renditions to Brazilian standards, directed by Roberto Menescal.

The video is an excerpt of Luiz Eca concert for Jazz Brasil, TV Cultura (1991) as a trio featuring Luiz Eca (piano), Luiz Alves (bass) and Lilian Carmona (drums) performing The Dolphin (Luiz Eca).

Tracks include:

01 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)

If you are looking at this cover thinking something like: “Oh! No! Another of those Bossa Nova for “tourists” with a woman on a bikini…” I agree 100% with you. This is the first reaction I had when I look at this cover. However, Caetano Rodrigues sent this LP to Loronixers, so I decided to call Caetano and ask the reason for such record. Caetano said: “It is VERY good!!!” When Caetano says it is very good, it is excellent.

This is The Ipanema Pop Orchestra – Bossa Nova for Swinging Lovers (1965), for London, an obscure Brazilian studio only group with not credited players, but the arrangers are Maestro Cipo, Eumir Deodato and Luiz Eca giving their best on twelve selected Bossa Nova standards. I would like to know the musicians on the set… I’m wondering if Eca plays the piano. Who has this answer? Anyway, an enjoyable album that you should investigate. As I said, don’t let the cover and the title cheats you, it is great and magnificent. Tracks include:

01 – O Barquinho (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
02 – Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Insensatez (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Vivo Sonhando (Tom Jobim)
05 – Amor e Paz (Tito Madi)
06 – Rio (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
07 – Desafinado (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
08 – Consolação (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – Samba de Uma Nota Só (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
10 – Corcovado (Tom Jobim)
11 – Berimbau (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – Meditação (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)

Perhaps zecalouro is happy with the good news received today, Loronix Store, just opened, very important to guarantee Loronix up-and-running. The new equipment I received to bring more music to Loronix. Anyway, I so happy that I decided to pick some rare picks from Caetano Rodrigues to share with Loronix and celebrate December and Christmas.

Meet this very hard to find LP, Luiz Eca – Um Piano na Madrugada (1956), for Copacabana, the second Eca LP’10, released after Uma Noite no Plaza (1955), already available at Loronix. Um Piano na Madrugada is exactly what the title is about. I do not drink, but when I hear this record, I feel that mood of going to a nightclub to hear a piano and drink whiskey. Nice atmosphere.

Um Piano na Madrugada is Luiz Eca (piano), Ed Lincoln, Vidal (bass) and Juquinha (drums). Thanks once again Caetano, Loronixers will get really pleased with this release. Tracks include:

01 – Secret Love (Fain / Paul Francis Webster)
