Oscar Brown Jr. e Luiz Henrique - Finding a New Friend (1966)

Hello, good evening! We will have a solid start today, showing a contribution coming from a new friend that lives outside of Brazil, probably overseas, carefully prepared and offered with FLAC files and nice hi-res scans of front and back cover. Our international collaborator says that Oscar Brown Jr. and Luiz Henrique deliver a perfect collaboration between a North American artist and a Brazilian artist and this is really worth checking out. Let’s see.

Finding a New Friend is all about the friendship of both main performers since the first time they met in 1965 at Greenwich Village Coffee House. The repertoire features a blend of America tunes with Brazilian music, including several songs written by Luiz Henrique in partnership with Oscar Brown Jr. Loronix Preview Center features the title track 07 – Finding a New Friend (Luiz Henrique / Oscar Brown Jr.).

When I heard this LP in the middle of 2006 I could not understand how great it was. Now Caetano comes with this album at this last package and I could finally take it the attention deserved. This is the kind of album that sounds different from everything you heard before. I don’t know what Luiz Henrique and Walter Wanderley had in terms of control, but I think this is the kind of album that can only be accomplished with freedom of doing whatever you want. Thanks Caetano for sending Popcorn to Loronixers.

This is Luiz Henrique & Walter Wanderley – Popcorn (1967), for Verve. PopCorn opens with Happy Birthday and for my surprise it is nice. The remaining tracks you will need to hear over and over again until you get the idea. Luiz Henrique is a great singer and there will be a surprise with Luiz Henrique at Loronix 1st year celebration, at least I hope. Tracks include:


Walter Wanderley
(organ, electric piano, harpsichord)
Jose Marino
James Kappes, Gary Chester and Donald Mac Donald
Melvin Tax and Romeo Penque
Luiz Henrique and Affonso de Paula

Track List

01 – Happy Birthday (Tradicional)

Caetano sent this record with all other wonderful ones to out Tom Jobim Tribute. Caetano, this is something that you cannot do with a friend. I had to make the Tribute, big rush, working hard to be with everything ready on time and this wonderful piece starring at me and saying: “Caetano sent me just to make you mad…”. The tribute is over and today I could appreciate it, as this record deserves. Thanks Caetano, very wise to put this one in the middle.

This is Bobby Hackett and Billy Butterfield – Bobby / Billy / Brasil (1967), for Verve, featuring the voice and the acoustic guitar of Luiz Henrique and the voice and accordion of Sivuca. Bobby Hackett and Billy Butterfield are trumpet players. The magic of this recording session is indeed Luiz Henrique rhythm guitar and the eventual accordion of Sivuca that also uses his voice as an instrument on a unique way. It is also amazing that Bobby, Billy, Brazil, released in 1967, never had the chance to be reissued on CD, I’m happy that Caetano is my great friend to reveal such things to Loronixers. Tracks include:

01 – Dancing in The Dark
02 – Sunny
03 – Cherokee
04 – Quiet Nights
05 – Never Ever Leave me (Nunca me Deixes)
06 – Baia
07 – That’s All
08 – Love is Here to Stay
09 – Dawm Comes Again
10 – Foggy Day
11 – Brasil

Hello, Good Night! A late good night today. The sunset in Copacabana was so great today that I could not stay away from the window until the end. However, full of good feelings and really motivated by the sunset, I discovered that everything is very slow with the Internet down here. I don’t know if it is something on my infrastructure or my hosting service. I don’t want to check this thing now, I’m in a very good humor and nothing can be stopping me. We will go today with already available material, which is also great.

This is Luiz Henrique – Listen to Me (1967), for Fontana USA, released in the US during his seven years stay outside Brazil. Listen to Me is not listed on the discographies I could check and probably it will be a good surprise for the many Luiz Henrique fans. Luiz Henrique is a great artist that uses to receive several comments from Loronixers on each release. Unfortunately, I could not search successfully personnel and complimentary details of this LP and I trust on Loronixers to add more info to this post. Tracks include:

01 – If You Want to Be a Lover
02 – I Was Afraid
03 – Berimbau
04 – There Goes my Heart
05 – Sem Tostao
06 – Song of Santa Claus
07 – In my Automobile
08 – Like a Flower
09 – Summer Song
10 – Sambao
11 – Alcinha
12 – Listen to Me

Additional information by Frank-Olliver Helman: “Arranged by Sivuca. There is also a photo of Dom Um Romao playing berimbau. “Sambao” is a Dom Um Romao composition. So Sivuca and Dom Um Romao participates on the whole recording.”

Varios Artistas – E Tempo de Musica Moderna (1965)

People, have a seat to another fantastic LP by the great Caetano Rodrigues. We have been preparing this post for more than a couple of days and Caetano – with some zecalouro influence – has decided that today is the right day. First, let’s take a special attention to the story behind this post.

Picture yourself in Rio de Janeiro, 1964, the Golden Bossa Nova years. Tamba Trio has just released his third LP for Philips, Tempo. CBD executives, together with Mrs. Stella Marinho from O Globo newspaper, decided to make a partnership to work together on a charity initiative called “Ajude uma Crianca a Estudar”, to collect funds and help child education.

The initiative was launched with a cocktail at Leme Palace Hotel, followed by a concert at Jornal O Globo, “E Tempo de Musica Moderna”, directed by Armando Pittigliani. Philips selected the best available at the cast to perform the show: Copa Trio, Luiz Henrique, Os Cariocas, Rosana Toledo, Jorge Ben and Tamba Trio.

This is E Tempo de Musica Popular Moderna – Varios Artistas (1964), for Philips, with an interesting fact, this is probably the only recording featuring the legendary Copa Trio, with Dom Salvador (piano), Edison Machado (drums) and Sergio Barroso (bass). Copa Trio starts the gig and backs up the remaining artists on the set, Luiz Henrique, Os Cariocas, Rosana Toledo and Jorge Ben. Tamba Trio closes the party with four tunes.

At the end of the concert, people could buy Tamba Trio – Tempo to help children. What amazing day. Who was there? If any friend had the chance to attend this historical concert, please tell us how it was. The track list has 12 songs, I decided to create single tracks for each artist just to be convenient and do not break each one performances. Mario Luiz from Radio Globo, makes nice introductions hosting the show. Tracks include.

Track List-= 01 =-
Copa Trio
Meu Fraco e Cafe Forte

-= 02 =-
Luiz Henrique
Sambou Sambou
Amor 6 x 0

Os Cariocas
Nem o Mar Sabia

I have been receiving some requests to post this LP, Luiz Henrique – Barra Limpa (1967), the last out of three released for Verve on Luiz Henrique USA years. As a matter of fact, zecalouro spoke a lot about Luiz Henrique on his last Loronix releases but forgot to say something that – I don’t know why – is considered amazing by everybody. Luiz Henrique had, how could I say in English, a love affair with Liza Minelli.

Barra Limpa is a mellow Bossa Jazz LP that you will enjoy, with most songs with English lyrics. The set has Luiz Henrique and Sivuca at the accordion among others American musicians. If Barra Limpa catches you up, send greetings to the Bossanovadreamer and Cezar Saldanha, both cried today for Barra Limpa at CBox. Tracks include:

01 – Listen To Me
02 – Vivo Sonhando
03 – If You Want To Be a Lover
04 – O Morro — Samba do Orfeu — Mas Que Nada
05 – Minha Lagoa
06 – A Waltz For Diane
07 – Reza
08 – Mas Que Qada
09 – Alicinha
10 – I Know You Go For Me
11 – A Trip To Brazil

Luiz Henrique – Mestiço (1975)

Publicado em: Wednesday, October 04, 2006 by zecalouro

Let’s start the show today with Luiz Henrique and what I suppose to be his last LP, Luiz Henrique – Mestiço (1975), released after Barra Limpa and Popcorn by Verve during his stay in the US. This album is really different from the first solo LP and these two later works. Mestiço is exactly what the name supposes to be, a fusion of 70’s influences approaching psycho, progressive rock with jazz arrangements.

Unfortunately, the linear notes does not bring any info about the line-up of this set, which I’m asking you please to send comments if you have this information. Tracks include:

01 – Jandira (Luis Henrique / Raul Caldas Filho)
02 – Mestiço (Luis Henrique)
03 – Sonhar (Luis Henrique / Raul Caldas Filho)
04 – Saiandeira (Luis Henrique)
05 – Say Hello To K T (Pra Não Deixar de Sambar) (Luis Henrique)
06 – Dianne (Luis Henrique)
07 – Sempre Amor (Luis Henrique / Oscar Brown Jr.)

Attention, please: post Post (Ouch!) information: the line-up, world class team, which confirms my first impressions. Great LP, released in 1975 by Itagra, an independent Brazilian label, just a few and limited number of copies were released. In spite of some discographies considering this LP as a 1972 release, I’m quite sure that this gem came to life in 1975.


Luiz Henrique
(guitar, vocal)
J.T. Meirelles
(sax, flute, arrangements)
Laércio de Freitas & William
(electric piano)
Tenório Jr.
(electric bass)
Edson Lobo
(acoustic bass)

There are several nice Brazilian artists from the Bossa Nova age that is almost impossible to zecalouro to track and make available for Loronixers. Luiz Henrique is one of those, a Brazilian singer that had a great success in the 60’s and made a consistent international career.

Luiz Henrique could not get a deserved recognition in Brazil and for zecalouro’s surprise he died in 1985 in a car accident. zecalouro proudly presents Luiz Henrique – A Bossa Moderna de Luiz Henrique (1964), his debut LP. Tracks include:

01 – Vou Andar Por Aí (Newton Chaves)
02 – Sambou Sambou (João Mello / João Donato)
03 – Tóc-tóc (Luis Henrique)
04 – Minha Terra (Luis Henrique) — Itaguaçú (O. Melo Filho)
05 – Samba Skindim (Luis Henrique)
06 – Se Amor É Isso (Luis Henrique)
07 – Balanço do Mar (Zil Rosendo)
08 – Paz de Amor (Luis Henrique)
09 – Da Cor do Pecado (Bororó)
