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:


(piano, organ, arrangements)
Luis Marinho
Sylvio (Tancredi?)
(electric guitar)
Pinocchio, Gilberto

Track List

01 – Pois e (Ataulpho Alves)
02 – You’re Sensational (Cole Porter)
03 – O Menino Grande (Antonio Maria)
04 – El Cubanchero (Rafael Hernandez)
05 – Historia de un Amor (Carlos Almaran)
06 – Requebrando (Mario Teresopolis / Guido Medina)
07 – Kalu (Humberto Teixeira)
08 – Tea for Two (Irving Caesar / Vincent Youmans)
09 – Ginga de Urubu (Pernambuco)
10 – Folha Morta (Ary Barroso)
11 – Begin the Beguine (Cole Porter)
12 – Forro no Limoeiro (Edgar Ferreira)

Avena de Castro e Primo – Som Ambiente Vol. 2 (1975)

Publicado em: Sunday, May 17, 2009 by zecalouro


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:



Avena de Castro
Durval Ferreira
(guitar on 01 – Coco, So Coco, 02 – Vo Bate pra Tu)

Track List

01 – Coco Só Coco (Villanova / Badi)
02 – Romance de Amor (Rafael Rovira)
03 – Tamanco Malandrinho (Tom / Dito) Dona Flôr e Seus Dois Maridos (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi)
04 – Song For Anna (André Popp / Jean / C. Massoulier)
05 – Naquela Mesa (Sergio Bittencourt) De Peito Aberto (Silvio Silva / Sergio Bittencourt)
06 – Soleado (Zacar / Siae)
07 – Vô Baté Pá Tú (Arnaud Rodrigues / Orlandivo)
08 – Feelings (Morris Albert)
09 – Toró de Lágrimas (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi / Zé do Maranhão)
10 – The Entertainer (Golpe de Mestre) (S. Joplin)
11 – Eu Quero Apenas (Roberto Carlos)

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:



Ze Menezes

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:


Sylvio Mazzucca
(arrangements. conduction, vibraphone)

Jose Ferreira Godinho Filho “Case”, Jose Ribamar Balby, Luis Suozzo, Eduardo “Lambari” Pecci, Mario Gomes Vieira
Gentil Contesini, Dorival Auriani, Francisco Dionizio
Orlando Bertozzi, Jose Cassetari, Edmundo Maciel
Luizinho Cangianiello
Armando Mazzucca
Jose Rezala “Turquinho”
Rubens de Souza Soares “Bassini”
Roberto Ditore
Rui Ditore

Track List

01 – Parabéns Pra Você (Happy Birthday To You) (Tradicional) – Feliz Aniversário (Alvarenga / Ranchinho) – Canção de Aniversário (Anniversary Song) (Ivanovici / Jolson / Charles Chaplin)
02 – Chá Cházinho (Sylvio Mazzuca) – With All My Heart (Marcucci / De Angelis) – Tequila (Chuck Rio)
03 – Alone (M. Craft / S. Craft) – Convite ao Samba (Denis Brean / Osvaldo Guilherme) – Não Tenho Lágrimas (Max Bulhões / Milton de Oliveira)
04 – Night Club (Sylvio Mazzuca) – Pour Elise (Ludwig Van Beethoven) – O Que É Que a Baiana Tem (Dorival Caymmi)

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)

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: 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

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)

Link original: Luiz Carlos Vinhas & Emilio Santiago – Ao Vivo (1974)
Publicado em: Wednesday, February 25, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! Yesterday, we had 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!”

Hello, good evening! I am very proud to be in charge of the technology side of Musicos do Brasil: Uma Enciclopedia Instrumental, the first Brazilian music Encyclopedia devoted to instrumental music. The website was recently updated with new features and left the Beta stage. When I have an album to share with the community, the Encyclopedia is very useful, being a solid reference source. Follow this link to reach Paulinho Nogueira’s entry and read about this great master of Brazilian guitar.

The Encyclopedia says that Paulinho Nogueira was more active as a teacher than as a studio musician. I also learned that Paulinho Nogueira was a designer, an essential skill to forge his invention, the craviola, an instrument that was adopted by Luiz Bonfa on his anthological Jacaranda album. Anyway, it is better leave the discovery pleasure for you; in the meantime, Loronix delivers another great Paulinho Nogueira record never released in CD. Let’s see.

This is Paulinho Nogueira – Sambas e Marchas da Nova Geracao (1967), for RGE, with the participation of Luiz Loy Quinteto and Os 3 Moraes. Sorry, for talking about different things at this post, but I just received from our friend Warren a YouTube video that really worth to be shared with you. It is about a guy that made a not authorized commercial movie about a store using a mobile phone camera, here. You will understand why it is so great when you take a look. Anyway, Paulinho Nogueira has the accompaniment of not credit musicians, singing on a few tracks. Track 01 – Roda (Gilberto Gil / Joao Augusto) a perfect example of one of Paulinho Nogueira’s strengths, which is the way he creates a completely different version of well-known compositions of other musicians. Tracks include:

01 – Roda (Gilberto Gil / João Augusto)
02 – Menina da Agulha (Sidney Miller)
03 – O Que a Gente Quer (Paulinho Nogueira)
04 – João e Maria (Hilton Accioli / Geraldo Vandré)
05 – Sem Mais Adeus (Francis Hime / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – Quem Te Viu Quem Te Vê (Chico Buarque)
07 – Para Contribuir à Confusão Geral (Paulinho Nogueira)
08 – Canção de Não Cantar (Sergio Bittencourt)
09 – Noite dos Mascarados (Chico Buarque)
10 – Procissão (Gilberto Gil)
11 – Benza Deus (Paulinho Nogueira)
12 – Máscara Negra (Zé Keti / Pereira Matos)

Hello, good evening! Yet another tiny record from Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira collection made available at Loronix, once again, another really worth checking release. For those who do not know this collection, Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira was published in 48 issues by Editora Abril Cultural between the years 1970 and 1972. Each issue includes a magazine with the size of a 10″ record and a 10″ record with a summary of the featured artist. It is perfect if you want get along with an artist on a single hearing. Let’s see.

This is Johnny Alf – Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira – 43 (1972), for Abril Cultural, featuring the Bossa Nova giant Johnny Alf performing his compositions and other artists performing Johnny Alf music. I said the collection is great, but the thing I like most is the magazine featuring pictures that are not easy to find, such as the one I’m making available below.


I don’t have muscles to transfer the magazine to digital format. My apologies. Perhaps one day I can have someone else working at Loronix. Tracks include:

Publicado em: Saturday, February 07, 2009 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I was dedicated on this writing during the last 3 hours. I made different versions using some ideas and approaches and I could not reach the results I was looking for. Now my eyes hurt, and if you have diabetes, you cannot play with your eyes. However, I cannot wait another 24 hours. I decided to write it from scratch, it is a very important post. This fantastic musician is being introduced to Loronix’s community for the first time tonight. And he is also, how can I say… a “true” Loronixer, a challenge winner that you already known using the gorgeous nickname of Pianista Sambista. Guilherme Vergueiro. Let’s see.

This is Guilherme Vergueiro – Guilherme Vergueiro Ao Vivo (1982), for Estudio Eldorado, recorded live at “International Jazz Montmartre”, Copenhagen, Denmark. It is hard to believe that I had the chance to hear this album for the first time only this week. This is really fantastic music played with passion by this quartet. I urge Loronix’s community to take Ao Vivo for a hearing and also visit Guilherme Vergueiro official website at and the Pianista Sambista’s blog at This album never had a CD reissue and I put a lot of energy on this transfer. Thanks Guilherme Vergueiro for the music, the respect you have to your public, the happiness and the energy. I’m making available Guilherme Vergueiro’s own biography taken from his official website. Tracks include:

I am a Brazilian who sees music as a work of art. I had all the classical training, but decided to get into the popular genre, because I have always been a deluded by Samba, Samba Canção (Brazilian ballad), Choro, Seresta and Bossa Nova. And I always been that way and behave this way since the beginning of my career in the late 60s.

Each song that I play, each performance, each recording has to be definitive. As an art we have in the living room wall throughout our lives. I like to interpret in my way and style, Brazilian music, translating the melodies, harmonies and Brazilian rhythms into the human feelings, the feelings of the Brazilian people, and for being like this I am very demanding with myself. I feel a huge responsibility every time I play the piano. Also I do not like to ever repeat myself. If I have to play the same song a myriad of times, each time has to be different, according to the day, time, era, the audience and especially my state of mind. Each day is a day, every hour is an hour. I have always to be open to what I’m feeling at the moment, open to new ideas that emerge in the middle of an interpretation, of an improvisation. I have no restrictions when I play the piano. I relate to it, we became one. My heart is the boss. Sends what I am feeling to my brain which in return sends the messages to my fingers. All of this in milliseconds. You should be very concentrated, otherwise the boat sinks. I just love the challenge, the emotion, the freedom that comes playing like that. Some pianists play with the fingers, I play with the heart.

I have infinite respect for the audience that is listening to me. My wish is to perpetuate in their hearts feelings, feelings that never will leave them. Sadness, joy, tension, density, lightness, rebellion, always truthful and sincere feelings, identifiable with the feelings and life of each. After all, every human being is equal, we all have our tragedies, struggles, loves, passions, adventures and misadventures, problems, joys, sorrows, happiness, certainty and uncertainty, insecurity and security and when we go to a concert, show, or listen to some music at home, in the car, we are actually looking for some form of relief and/or comfort to our souls, and sometimes I am the one who take responsibility for bring this relief and/or comfort to people. I feel a huge responsibility. I dive into the bottom of my soul to find the most pure and sincere sentiments so the public can leave a little of the harsh reality of life behind, and go to other dimensions, other spheres, more calm and benevolent, where love prevails, where the union really is the force, where there is peace, tranquility and serenity. I always hope for that all my appearances and/or recordings stay for ever in the heart and soul of the people. I am very careful with this, but I confess that I feel I’m still learning. That music is infinite and that learning ends only when God calls us for other missions.

But since I’m still here, (and hopefully stay for a long time), I still am always eager for the improvement of my mission here, which is to be a musician. A Brazilian musician. A Pianist. Be more patient, dedicated, conscientious and increasingly concentrated.

I pray to God to never forget me, (as He never forgot), that my inspiration and my love for others are increasingly in accordance with His teachings and that I can accomplish the task that was given to me always with more balance, wisdom, concentration, strength, responsibility, joy and much love, whether playing, composing, arranging, producing or making a documentary. (My new passion.)

In my life I already, experienced much love, joy, excitement, difficulties, betrayal, losses … but I survived. I did much good, I made many friends, (Maybe I have some enemies, but either I do not know them or I do not know that is an enemy) but I also sinned. A whole lot of sins. I had many false friends. Many women left me. But the music and the piano never. Neither the real friends. Thank God!” (Guilherme Vergueiro)

Claudette Soares – Gil-Chico-Veloso por Claudette Soares (1968)

Hello, good evening! We made a small homage to the Brazilian diva Doris Monteiro a couple of days ago, and now it is time to celebrate another Diva, very connected with Bossa Nova keeping an active and productive career across decades. Claudette Soares. She started very early at 10 singing on radio shows, recording her first album, a 78rpm in 1954. Claudette Soares was also crooner of the legendary Hotel Plaza nightclub, a meeting point in the beginning of Bossa Nova years.

I’m taking a unique Claudette Soares release recorded in 1968, featuring arrangements by Maestro Rogerio Duprat and based on the repertoire of three young Brazilian composers at that time, Gilberto Gil, Chico Buarque and Caetano Veloso. Let’s see.

This is Claudette Soares – Gil-Chico-Veloso por Claudette Soares (1968), for Philips, with the not credited participation of Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, performing with Claudette Soares in 11 – Clara (Caetano Veloso) and 12 – Yemanja (Gilberto Gil / Othon Bastos). We have a short and really amazing record here and you can call it whatever you want to call since it has several influences, such like Bossa Nova, Samba, Tropicalia, MPB, etc. My searches were not successful when looking for additional information about this album, perhaps Gil-Chico-Veloso por Claudette Soares never had a chance to be issued in the CD format, which is something I would like to see one day. Personnel listing was not credited by Philips. Tracks include:

01 – Januária (Chico Buarque)
02 – Lia (Caetano Veloso / Gilberto Gil)
03 – Frevo Rasgado (Gilberto Gil / Bruno Ferreira)
04 – Desencontro (Chico Buarque)
05 – Deus Vos Salve Esta Casa Santa (Caetano Veloso / Torquato Neto)
06 – Mancada (Gilberto Gil)
07 – Bandolim (Chico Buarque)
08 – Remelexo (Caetano Veloso)
09 – Domingou (Gilberto Gil / Torquato Neto)
10 – Lua Cheia (Chico Buarque / Toquinho)
11 – Clara (Caetano Veloso) with GILBERTO GIL
12 – Yemanjá (Gilberto Gil / Othon Bastos) with GILBERTO GIL

Beth Carvalho - Beth Carvalho - Pandeiro E Viola (1975)

Hello, good evening! I’ve been receiving messages with compliments and suggestions on the new features implemented at Loronix during the last weeks. I would like to thank everyone who wrote and also thank the whole community for making available our dedicated server with donations last year. Without this dedicated Linux box, all these features would not be viable. I believe Loronix is the only blog to have a dedicated server, which is something that makes me feel really proud and confident in our future. I swear to prepare a message tomorrow to clarify what are these new features and how to get the most from their use. This is only the beginning and the work will be hard in the next months, but it is a very rewarding job.

Finally, part of this work is to visit again all old posts, which is something I do only in situations like this. I do not read download statistics, but they reveal some very interesting things, such as popularity of Beth Carvalho in our community. I believe this release would please many friends. Let’s see.

This is Beth Carvalho – Pandeiro e Viola (1975), for Tapecar, featuring arrangements and direction of the legendary Ed Lincoln, coordination a dream team of Brazilian musicians. Beth Carvalho dedicates this record to Nelson Cavaquinho and Guilherme de Brito. Tapecar releases in the mid 1970’s are always worth checking, especially if you like Samba.

Hello, good evening! My pick for this Saturday was decided on a different manner. I’m in a rush here, and I did not took this album for a hearing the way I use to do. But you should agree it is not necessary. This album never had a CD reissue and it unknown to many friends. The little I heard was enough to understand this record is such like a friend’s meeting, very relaxed session. The duo brings to studio renowned friends, such like Maria Bethania, Maria Creuza, Sergio Endrigo and Cyro Monteiro, which is his last record session participation before his passing in the same year. Let’s see.

This is Toquinho & Vinicius de Moraes – Toquinho / Vinicius & Amigos (1974), for RGE, featuring Vinicius de Moraes compositions performed with special guests. It is easy to identify each performer at this cover artwork, except Chico Buarque, the one in the right, besides Sergio Endrigo. Find the list of performers below and have a nice Sunday. Christmas is very close and if you do not reach Loronix until there, take my Happy Christmas message with you. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! It is really, really nice to share another album recorded by Maestro Simonetti. It is also really amazing to know that this one never had a previous release at Loronix. I think Simonetti has many fans among Loronix’s community, such like Caetano Rodrigues, another Simonetti enthusiast that should be really pleased to see this one. By the way, this cover is simple, but is very beautiful and very efficient to sell this kind of album. Let’s see.

This is Simonetti e Sua Orquestra – Dance com Simonetti (1961), for RGE, featuring renditions a Brazilian and international repertoire in the “Para Dancar” style. Simonetti was born in Italy, came to Brazil in 1949, staying until the mid 1960’s, when he decided to come back to his homeland in Italy. Simonetti was very famous in Brazil, recording several albums, writing arrangements to renowned Brazilian artists, such like: Maysa, Agostinho dos Santos, Elza Laranjeira, Dick Farney, Leny Eversong, and many others. He was an active songwriter to Vera Cruz, a famous Brazilian movie studio and also a host of shows in Brazilian TV. My knowledge on Simonetti activities in Italy is very limited, feel free to send comments if you have additional information. Tracks include:

01 – O Homem do Braço de Ouro (Delilah Jones) (S. Fyne / E. Bernstein)
02 – Chá-chá-chá Egypcio (Claude)
03 – Blue Mon (L. Hart / R. Rodgers)
04 – Babá de Mulher (Haroldo Barbosa / Luis Reis)

He was a Bossa Nova pioneer in Brazil and had also a very solid career in the US, where he made his move in the mid 1960’s, invited by Sergio Mendes and never came back to Brazil.

Hello again! Busy day at Loronix today, this is good. Before talking about this reposting, I would like to say that I received emails from friends who live outside Brazil asking for directions to purchase Charles Gavin’s book 300 Discos Importantes da Música Brasileira. My advice is to use Livraria Cultura on-line, they ship outside Brazil, in five continents, check this page to see Livraria Cultura shipping rates & policies. And good luck!

This is Jacob do Bandolim – Epoca de Ouro | Jacob e Seu Bandolim em HI-FI (1958), for RCA Victor. Jacob do Bandolim recorded this album in 1958, and it is really different from his regular choro releases. Jacob is backed by and orchestra arranged by Maestro Radames Gnatalli and Maestro Carioca with Maestro Zaccarias in charge of conduction. There is also a Conjunto, not with a traditional Choro formation, featuring bass, piano, sax and accordion performed by renowned Brazilian musicians. The first post was made with a mid 60’s RCA Candem reissue and this is the first RCA Victor original issue, featuring this beautiful cover that finally arrives at Loronix. Tracks include:

Os Cariocas - Minha Namorada

Hello, good evening! I found this album on one of those old vinyl shops in Rio, and I always thought it was just a compilation with tracks taken from previous albums. If I knew this is the first album recorded by Os Cariocas after a 21 years hiatus, I would have made it available at Loronix earlier. Minha Namorada features a repertoire with the greatest Os Cariocas tunes. The cover brings autographs of each component, where Quartera signs in place of Luiz Roberto, who unfortunately died in this period. Confirmation is needed, but I believe this album was signed by Os Cariocas after the tragic Luiz Roberto passing. Let’s see.

This is Os Cariocas – Minha Namorada (1990), for Som Livre. It is unbelievable this album is out of print. The recording quality is amazing and I really recommend that you take good headphones to hear the sophisticated vocal arrangements made by Severino Filho. Os Cariocas is really a unique and very special vocal group. Tracks include:


Severino Filho
(piano, 1st voice, arrangements)
(violao, 2nd voice)
Luiz Roberto
(bass, 3rd voice)
(drums, 4th voice)

Track List

01 – Minha Namorada (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Samba do Avião (Tom Jobim)
03 – Tema Para Lúcia (Severino Filho)
04 – Samba da Pergunta (Pingarilho / Marcos Vasconcellos)

Hello, good evening! This is another awesome contribution sponsored by Jorge Mello, featuring – forgive me if I’m wrong – the last album recorded by the Brazilian guitarist Codo, a very important musician acknowledged by many others, such like Elizeth Cardoso and Baden Powell, who wrote a tune dedicated to Codo, Um Abraco no Codo, released on Baden Powell’s 27 Horas de Estudio (1969), Elenco. Let’s see.

This is Codo – Coisas da Minha Terra (1978), for CID, a beautiful celebration to Codo’s music. Codo is backed by a constellation of Brazilian musicians, including Sivuca (also in charge of arrangements), Wilson das Neves, Dino 7 Cordas, Copinha, Neco, Paulo Moura, among many others. Coisas da Minha Terra works under two different concepts. Side A is all instrumental and brings an interview with Codo between the four tracks with the participation of Sergio Cabral, Sivuca and Antonio Mascarenhas. Side B has lyrics with Codo singing, playing and supported by a choir, including Jaime Alem and Nair Candia. Elizeth Cardoso is the special guest on Side A second track, Indecisa Aurora (Codo / Itamar Souza e Silva). Coisas da Minha Terra should address wants and needs of everybody with these two different approaches. Tracks include:



(violao, voice)
Wilson das Neves
Antonio Mascarenhas
Dino 7 Cordas
(violao 7 cordas)
(cavaquinho, guitar)
Deo Rian
Leninha, Nelson
Paulo Moura

Hello, good evening! I’ve been really waiting for the moment of updating Loronix again. It is really nice to be back. It was a great pleasure to read and approve each comment sent on the last “get well soon” post. Thanks everybody for supporting me and keeping Loronix alive and busy during these crazy days. Loronix community provides personal accomplishments that can only be experienced here, not anywhere else in this world. Thank You!

This is Toquinho – Ao Vivo em Montreux (1982), for BMG Ariola. I could not sleep well today without updating Loronix, and this is a really nice post. I never heard about Toquinho’s participation at Montreux Jazz Festival. As far as I could search, this album never had the chance of a digital release and it is pretty unknown. Toquinho plays, sings and is backed by a constellation of Brazilian musicians, including the legendary bassist Azeitona. Tracks include:


Djalma Correa, Papete
Roberto Sion
(sax, flute)

This album was found MINT and no audio restoration was made.

Hello, good evening! This album brings a live recording featuring the Brazilian poetry, composer, singer and diplomat Vinicius de Moraes and the acclaimed Amalia Rodrigues, perhaps the most important Portuguese singer, known as “Rainha do Fado” the “Queen of Fado”, which is a Portuguese music genre. Vinicius de Moraes was friend of Amalia Rodrigues and according with back cover liner notes this album was recorded in 19th December 1968 at Amalia Rodrigues place, on a farewell meeting to Vinicius de Moraes, leaving Portugal at that time. Let’s see.

This is Vinicius de Moraes & Amalia Rodrigues – Amalia / Vinicius | Vinicius / Amalia (1970), for Decca, a live performance, recorded without the participants consent using hidden microphones. The session has the atmosphere of a friend’s meeting, featuring music and poetry, also including renowned Portuguese poetries, such like: David Mourão-Ferreira, Natália Correia, Carlos Ary dos Santos and Alain Oulman. This record was released two years after the performance in 1970, and I’m presenting here the first Portuguese issue in the original double LP format. I think we have today a great treat to Vinicius de Moraes fans and our friends from Portugal. Tracks include:

Bossa 4 repeteco front

Hello, good evening! I’m back, and it is always very nice to be back to Loronix. Thanks for being here! I spoke about a given Musidisc release to stay on top of the excellent JIN contribution. However, a technical problem with the music and image transfer occurs and we will need to wait an additional day for it. Meanwhile, I want to share an album that certainly would not be a strong candidate to Loronix under normal conditions. It was released by Equipe, another legendary Brazilian record company in the 60’s, featuring a group that I never heard about, which is Bossa 4, a blend of instrumental and vocal group, featuring guitar, bass, drums, percussion and a very nice organist. Let’s see.

This is Bossa 4 – Repeteco Outra Vez (1968), for Equipe. Little I know about this album and this group, but I’m confident that additional information should come very soon from several and serious Equipe’s collectors around Loronix, especially Bossanov, our rarities advisor from Russia. Tracks include:

01 – O Caderninho (Olmir Stocker “Alemão”)
02 – Te Amo (Roberto Corrêa / Sylvio Son)
03 – Eu Estou Feliz (Puppet On a String) (B. Martin / P. Coucter)

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)

Publicado em: Tuesday, September 09, 2008 by zecalouro



Hello, good evening! I think we will have today the same situation we had tomorrow on our last post, an unknown album recorded by a great artist and never released in CD. Maybe I’m wrong, but except from some occasional and small reissues, Quarteto em Cy – Querelas do Brasil, never had a chance to be released at the digital age. This is a repost, Querelas do Brasil was made available first in November 2006 with no back cover, transferred at a low bitrate and had a track missing. Everything is now updated and I hope you have a very nice time with this great vocal group. Let’s see.

This is Quarteto em Cy – Querelas do Brasil (1978), for Philips, which is probably the most “political flavored” album released by the girls, with several lyrics about Brazilian problems of that time.

Hello, good evening! It is really nice to be back to Loronix after 2 days of rest, which in fact were taken by lots of very hard and productive work. Miltinho and Doris Monteiro were during this time and I believe it was a great choice. Anyway, the show must go on, and I would like to start with another flawless release sponsored by Jorge Mello, featuring an artist appreciated by our community as a whole. Let’s see.

This is Waltel Branco – Musicas do Seculo XVI ao Seculo XX (1974), for Itamaraty. Actually, this album was first released in 1974 by another label, the tiny Magic Music, and Jorge Mello presents a later Itamaraty reissue, whose date I could not track on my searches. The album is exactly what its title suggests; Waltel Branco delivers violao renditions of music written across the XVI and XX centuries, including his own compositions, such like track 09 – Preludio Sarabanda e Bourree (Waltel Branco), which is also my choice to Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:

01 – Cancoes do Seculo XVI (Tradicional)
02 – Ballet (Gluck)
03 – Romanza (Schumann)
04 – Valsa Nr 15 (Brahms)
05 – Ballet (Weiss)
06 – Preludio Nr 20 (Frederic Chopin)
07 – Estudos 1 e 6 (Sor)
08 – Sarabanda (Poulenc)
09 – Preludio Sarabanda e Bourree (Waltel Branco)
10 – Preludio Nr 2 (Villa-Lobos)
11 – Andante (Staak)
12 – Moda de Viola (Waltel Branco)

I spent the last hour working very hard on another amazing post sponsored by Jorge Mello, but in the last minute I found a problem, the transfer was not well done. It happens sometimes. Sleeping started his slow domination and the bed became a really good option. Then I remember this contribution sent by my mother and the messages I received with requests for new Para Dancar albums. Sleeping was cancelled, and I had to take an extra energy to bring this final Saturday post. Let’s see.

This is Andre Penazzi – Andre Penazzi e Suas Musicas para Dancas (1959), for Chantecler, featuring the Brazilian organist with orchestra on this very old and different Andre Penazzi from his Audio Fidelity albums recorded in the sixties. Actually, this is the first time I see Andre Penazzi, an artist that I never could find information about and it is very popular among vinyl collectors, especially outside Brazil. Tracks include:

01 – A Voz do Morro (Zé Keti)
02 – Chega de Saudade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Bom Dia Café (Victor Simon)
04 – Saudade da Bahia (Dorival Caymmi)

Encantamento com Maria Helena Raposo

MariaHelenaRaposoHello, good evening! I saw this album for the first time at Jorge Mello’s place, and this is another amazing contribution sponsored by Jorge Mello. Actually, some Jorge Mello’s albums were selected by my feeling. I remember that day, a great day. It was a hot day and we were talking about many things such like two kids. While talking, I was also browsing Jorge Mello’s collection and making decisions. It was a challenge to keep the conversation and selecting the contributions. I admit that some of them were selected only by instinct; such like this one, but every selection I made with no detailed examination brought great surprises, such like this one. Let’s see.

This is Maria Helena Raposo – Encantamento com Maria Helena Raposo (1958), for the legendary label Mocambo, featuring the first and probably the only album recorded by the Brazilian singer Maria Helena Raposo, a classical singer making her initial steps towards the popular music. Actually, Maria Helena Raposo recorded a 78RPM at the same Mocambo in 1956. The repertoire features three Ary Barroso compositions, and the first recording of Estrada do Sol, written by Antonio Carlos Jobim in 1956 with lyrics by Dolores Duran in the end of the same year, a real treat for Antonio Carlos Jobim admirers, essentially, everybody. Estrada do Sol is available at Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:

01 – Prece (Marino Pinto / Vadico)
02 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)
03 – Estrada do Sol (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)

08 – Antigamente (Vadico / Jarbas Melo)
09 – Portão Antigo (Antônio Maria)
10 – Nega Nhanhá (Ary Barroso)

I believe that many friends will not understand why the back cover has the spotlight instead of the front cover with Maria Creuza photo. There is a special reason, Vinicius de Moraes, who left this planet on July 09, 2008, exactly 28 years ago. It has been twenty-eight years without Vinicius de Moraes. I remember the day of his passing as it was yesterday. Vinicius de Moraes lives through his work and should live for many decades; he is one of the most important Brazilian popular music artists. Let’s see.

Hello, good evening! I made a small surgery on my left feet this week and this is the reason why Loronix was not updated as usual. Additionally, my mother came to give assistance and make things more complicated as never with several recommendations, lots of things to eat and those really annoying mom’s questions about life that makes we feel really embarrassed.

Among the ups and downs of mom’s visit there is something really good, she is back to contributions and I want to start her small package with the one that we like most, which is the first LP recorded by the Brazilian bandolim virtuoso Deo Rian. Let’s see.

This is Deo Rian – Ernesto Nazareth, Solista: Deo Rian (1970), for RCA Vitor, featuring wonderful renditions of Ernesto Nazareth music played by Deo Rian bandolim with the accompaniment of Quinteto Villa Lobos, Dino 7 Cordas, Canhoto and a not credited strings quartet. This is a magnificent album, not only for the choro fans, but for everyone in the mood of listening Ernesto Nazareth beautiful melodies with really creative arrangements made by a not credited artist.

The back cover brings Deo Rian autography, dedicating this album to Sergio Bittencourt, which is Jacob do Bandolim son. My mother demands that I keep this album available to Deo Rian due this writing at the back cover, which is something that I totally agree. It will be a great pleasure to give this album to Deo Rian as a present from Loronix. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! This is the first out of a series of albums recorded by Jaime Alem and Nair Candia for CID, under a series named “Talento Brasileiro”. I think the first who spoke with me about this series was the might Mr. D&C, a long time ago. I confess that with no help from my friends I could never take these albums in consideration. The main performers are not credited at the front cover and it is necessary to go across the back cover to realize this is a career album of Jaime & Nair, which I did not know before taking this album. Jaime & Nair albums are sought after by many collectors, especially outside of Brazil. It is time to check what they have to offer. Let’s see.

This is Jaime Alem & Nair Candia – Serie Talento Brasileiro 4 – As Musicas de Tom Jobim (1978), for CID, featuring a repertoire of Antonio Carlos Jobim tunes. As Musicas de Tom Jobim work very nice as a perfect counterpoint to previous Loronix releases, mostly instrumentals. Jaime Alem is in charge of arrangements and Nair Candia for voice, delivered here by a chorus. It will be really important if you leave your feedback on this release, Jaime & Nair recorded other albums for CID in the same concept featuring tunes by Milton Nascimento, Chico Buarque and probably additional ones, not yet identified. Tracks include:
