Hello, good evening! And thanks Moos for writing. Loronix was on hiatus for almost two weeks and things were really strange down here. My health has been stable; it was only a matter of accumulated work. I’ve been working as freelance since January and two websites I was making for my customers reached the final development stage in the last days, all together. Weird time of very hard work. I will keep the community informed as soon as the result of these engagements gets on-line. Who knows someone needs a website and hires me, helping also Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Pernambuco e Seu Conjunto – Em Ritmo de Danca (1957), for Polydor, with the well know pistonist Pernambuco delivering piano playing backed by a Conjunto, surprisingly credited by Polydor. This is not the first Pernambuco album at Loronix and you should not take by mistake the percussionist Pernambuco do Pandeiro, also active during the 1950’s. Pernambuco was also in charge of arrangements and some organ playing. The conjunto brings important musicians, such like the bassist Luis Marinho and the legendary Brazilian guitarrist Bandeirante. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! Maybe I am wrong as usual, but I think this record will surprise many friends. I never heard about the existence of a second volume of the anthological Som Ambiente, recorded by Marcos Valle and Azymuth in 1972. And this is what both volumes have in common since the concept is totally different. Instead of not credited artists, this surprising duo has loud and clear credits, including lots of information available at the back cover (some of them very hard to believe) and the participation of Durval Ferreira on two tracks, which is also the producer director. Let’s see.

This is Avena de Castro & Joao Peixoto Primo – Avena e Primo | Som Ambiente Vol 2 (1975), featuring for the first time at Loronix the sitar player Avena de Castro and the well-known pianist and organist Primo. Avena’s sitar sounds like an electric guitar, different from the sound of sitar made popular by George Harrison and Ravi Shankar in the 1960’s, which was my expectation before taking Som Ambiente Vol 2 for a first spin. A few Google searches were enough to tell me that Avena de Castro started as a classical musician and later embraced popular music. He is also considered the first and only sitar player in Brazilian popular music. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! This is the third album I’m making available from this obscure record company with the name and logo based on an animal that does not exists in Brazil, the legendary Tiger. Little I know about this label except these albums, the excellent Moacyr Marques e Seu Conjunto – Jazz & Bossa Nova (1959), a contribution of my Mentor Caetano Rodrigues and this early Hermeto Pascoal recording with Pernambuco do Pandeiro e Seu Regional – Batucando no Morro (1958), both really worth checking out. Catulo de Paula is an artist requested by many friends, many and important friends, such like Frank-Oliver Hellman, which I want to say thanks for recommending Catulo de Paula a long time ago. Let’s see.

This is Catulo de Paula – Catulo Canta no Michel (1959), for Tiger. Catulo de Paula delivers a repertoire based on his performances at Michel Bar, a nightclub I never heard about. According with Guio de Moraes liner notes, Catulo de Paula performed on Michel Bar for more than a year, accompanied only by his acoustic guitar. Ze Menezes delivers fantastic instrumental accompaniment to Catulo de Paula leading a trio of guitar, drums and bass. By the way, Ze Menezes gives a real lesson of how accompany singer with a guitar. Really worth checking out. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! Today was one of those days that we don’t forget. I was the first out of bed, starting as planned walking outside and purchasing bread and butter for a breakfast that only exists in Brazil. Then, my 12-years old nephew taught me many interesting tricks in Photoshop, some of them of immediate application at Loronix. Later on, we decided to open and play with the inside parts of an old notebook that had his last moments of life with zeca, which destroyed everything with refinement of cruelty. We had lunch together, followed by some guitar playing. That was special for me; I could realize that even with the left hand without touching I could make it for a couple of hours. We had also a birthday cake celebrating my brother anniversary. An incredible day and a perfect closing with an album requested by many loronixers. Let’s see.

This is Sylvio Mazzucca e Sua Orquestra – Baile de Aniversario (1958), for Columbia, featuring renowned Brazilian musicians, some very hard to see on recordings, such like the sax of Jose Fereira Godinho Filho, the legendary Case, Eduardo “Lambari” Pecci from Quarteto Lambari and something that requires confirmation, Rubens Bassini using Rubens de Souza Soares, probably his real name. Maestro Sylvio Mazzucca plays the role of arranger, conductor and vibraphone player. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! It is wonderful to be back to Loronix. Thank you for keeping the community and the website alive during my absence. I hope you had quality time here at Loronix and also with your families and friends.

My move is finished and I have much to say about it. Despite almost 10 days since the beginning of the process, writing these lines today is a miracle. I’m enjoying my new place, important for me to be immediately assisted in episodes of hypoglycemia and other boring stuff.

My family was just myself and zecalouro and now we are a true family of 3 adults (my brother and wife) and his two sons, my nephews. Exciting things happened. As soon as he heard about my arrival, my nephew decided to take guitar classes and now plays very well with a few lessons.

The adaptation of zecalouro, a major concern in our new home was instantaneous. He now has the company of other 7 birds and 5 dogs. I cannot remember zeca facing a dog before, and now his favorite sport is riding around the yard mounted on the back of a Labrador.

Loronix IT infrastructure of the Loronix is not yet mounted in the new home. The move took all my money and I need to save some cash to hire an Internet connection and then setup the new environment.

This will be my priority in the coming days. For now, I’m just making albums previously prepared or contributions from our great friends, such like this one, kindly provided by Mr. E., featuring an important musician who never had the chance to be here. Let’s see.

This is Gao – The Melodic Sound of Gao’s Piano (1966), for London, featuring The Ipanema Strings, which is something that I would like very much to know more. The Ipanema Strings are not new to Loronix, they are also backing Neco at Neco’s Guitar and The Ipanema Strings – Velvet Bossa Nova (1966), for the same London and released in the same 1966 year. My searches on The Ipanema Strings did not return consistent information. Perhaps someone can bring additional info on The Ipanema Strings at the comment section. Gao is a Brazilian maestro and pianist, active on recordings from the 1930’s until the late 1960’s, releasing several 78RPMs and a few albums in the “modern” 33RPM 12-inches LP format. Gao is a very old request made by several Loronix’s friends that I’m very pleased to address, thanks to Mr. E. and his always cute transfers. Tracks include:

01 – Murmurando (Mário Rossi / Fon-Fon)
02 – Curare (Bororó)
03 – Apanhei-te Cavaquinho (Ernesto Nazareth)
04 – Flor de Abacate (A. Sandin)
05 – Naquele Tempo (Pixinguinha / Benedito Lacerda)
06 – Da Cor do Pecado (Bororó)
07 – Ai Yoyo (Linda Flor) (Henrique Vogeler)
08 – Saudade (Lauro Miranda)
09 – André de Sapato Novo (André Victor Correia)
10 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha / João de Barro)
11 – Tenebroso (Ernesto Nazareth)
12 – Cabeludo (Gaó)

Varios Artistas – Vitrine Odeon (no date)

vitrine Odeon

I received an email from the owner of one of the coolest blogs I know, Toque Musical, which is now up and running on a new website, very similar to the previous one, but I recommend that you follow this link to make sure you will reach the right website, here: http://toque-musicall.blogspot.com. If you like Brazilian music and LPs, Toque Musical is mandatory.

TM (is that your name?) also said he made a long time ago Vitrine Odeon, and kindly sent to Loronix the scan of the original cover. Thanks TM for your great sharing spirit.

Good, the pieces are getting together, and now we need only Clovis Pereira – Ritmos Aluciantes and Elizeth Cardoso – Cancao de Amor audios. I want to thank TM for this update and also remind you again to reach his website at http://toque-musicall.blogspot.com.

Hello, good evening! Everything went wrong today and this is the reason why three covers are available. Perhaps it is the anticipated effect of the move, scheduled for Tuesday, next week, or perhaps just a coincidence. I had an amazing plan. I started with Elizeth Cardoso – Cancao de Amor (1957), a compilation released by Todamerica featuring Elizeth Cardoso phonograms taken from old 78rpm records. I heard it from the start until the end and liked a lot; the repertoire is awesome and features several Brazilian popular music standards.

Unfortunately, the output I got when transferring was really bad, several scratches and a strange background noise. I had to decline. If someone has this album and sharing spirit, please write me using the comment section or my email.

Recovered from Elizeth Cardoso’s trauma, all my attention was turned to another target, a sough after album by Loronix community and LP collectors worldwide, which is Clovis Pereira Ritmos Alucinantes (1957), for the obscure label Repertorio. This is album brings the first Hermeto Pascoal recording as an instrumentalist.

However, I had another problem, the record inside was not Clovis Pereira, but a compilation released by Odeon featuring Aloysio de Oliveira telling the story of high fidelity on side B and various artists on side A. Almost losing my forces, I decided to make it and tell you this long story. Let’s see.

This is Varios Artistas – Vitrine Odeon (no date), for Odeon, featuring Aloysio de Olivera e O Bando da Lua, Maestro Leo Peracchi, Fon-Fon e Sua Orquestra, Mario Reis, Francisco Alves, Steve Bernard e Seu Conjunto and the first track I had the chance to hear with Conjunto Brasil Sonoro, featuring Altamiro Carrilho (flute), Carlos Matos (violao), Chaim Lewak (piano), Agostinho Silva (organ), Norato (trombone), Chiquinho do Acordeom (acordion), Hans (oboe), Jayme Araujo (alto sax), Formiga (piston) e Netinho (clarinet), a constellation of Brazilian musicians.

Luiz Carlos Vinhas & Emilio Santiago – Ao Vivo (1974)

SantiagoeVinhas

Hello, good evening! Yesterday, we had Sabadabada.com tribute and today this amazing contribution by JIN, Jose Ignacio Neto, which is another Brazilian music hero in cyberspace. In case you don’t know who, JIN belongs to the third generation of the Ignacio’s family, a family devoted to Brazilian music. His grandfather, the legendary Jose Ignacio, was the man behind the anthological “A Volta” podcast. JIN delivers a contribution that I’m sure you never had the chance to hear before, an unissued session featuring Luiz Carlos Vinhas and Emilio Santiago, recorded live in 1974 by Bill Horn. I will leave now as the show will be hosted by JIN from now one with his own knowledgeable words. JIN, my apologies for taking a long time to make this one. Let’s see.

Jose Ignacio Neto says: “One of the key figures amongst global collectors of funky Brazilian bossa over the last 20 years was undoubtedly the leader and pianist Luiz Carlos Vinhas.

A charismatic figure and stalwart of the Rio nightclub scene until his early death a few short years ago, Vinhas sometimes straddled the line between fantastic good taste and total ‘cafonice’ to use a word from back in the day. An instinctive pianist, I remember seeing him playing in 2000 at the Vinicius Piano Bar in Rio, on a crappy keyboard and being amazed as I watched his small chubby fingers seemingly bounce around the keyboard in the manner of someone pretending to be able to play the piano, and yet out came incredible sounds full of swing and rhythm!

For many, the CBS album from 1968 (produced by Helcio Milito from Tamba Trio) simply called L.C.V – O Som Psicedelico was his best work. A frenetic mixture of pop tunes, bossa, afro cuban funk – and the Chattanooga Choo Choo! His seminal composition on this album Ye-Me-Le is known to millions via the Sergio Mendes version.

After that LP he didn’t record much and the 1973 album ‘No Flog’ on EMI Odeon was a bit of a disappointment – just pot pourris with added cheers and clinking whisky glasses.

But imagine if there was a long lost recording with music on a level with O Som Psicodelico? And imagine if that recording also marked one of the earliest recordings of super soul singer Emilio Santiago?

Back in 1974 trumpeter and studio owner Bill Horne (known to Loronix fans from his many appearances in the ‘Guess Who’ photo competitions) recorded this session with Vinhas backing Santiago.

For many years the tapes languished on a dusty shelf in Leblon, but some years ago my grandfather Jose Ignacio was given a copy, un-mastered and straight from the tapes but so fantastic that it deserves to see the light of day for all dedicated Vinhas and Emilio fans.

The musicians’ names are long forgotten (but some Loronix fans please tell us if it’s you playing!) but are ‘feras’ in their own right.

And if this super rare session wasn’t enough, I’ve included a demo recording of Emilio Santiago that I believe was used to get his recording contract with Durval Ferreira at CID in 1975. Edson Frederico is the pianist here, drummer was probably Ronie Mesquita.

As Zeca would have said back then, Valeu, Bicho!”

zecalouro: “Valeu! JIN!”
