I have been managing some hardware changes at Loronix and Murphy’s Law seems to be around. Perhaps my fault. If something is working fine, don’t change it. Anyway, it was a necessary change, nothing that you will see the impact; it was a simple change according with my financial possibilities.

This is one of several reasons to start the day reposting another true classic from the old times. People say that I’m a lucky guy and I’m starting to agree. I got this album for an unbelievable price, so cheap that I feel embarrassed to say here, which is something that makes me happy and I hope Loronixers also feel happy. Improvements are countless, from cover art scans, music and the availability of the new FLAC alternative, let’s see.

This is Os Ipanemas – Os Ipanemas (1964), for Columbia, a unique and killer set of Bossa Jazz with Afro Influences, featuring the traditional bass and drums with the addition of Astor Silva trombone, Neco’s guitar and Ruben Bassini percussion. Astor Silva is probably the leader of Os Ipanemas, which is a constellation of Brazilian musicians that recorded this first and only album for Columbia. Os Ipanemas were assembled 40 years later for another recordings and different formation, but never could reach what was done in this first 1964 release. Tracks include:


Astor Silva
Wilson das Neves
Rubens Bassini

This release closes the amazing series of three EPs sent by our great friend Caetano Rodrigues to Loronixers. Once again, something that most of us could ever realize the existence. This EP, for instance, is not included on any discography. I could only find a reference on gemm.com, which seems to be the best place for search Caetano’s impossible to find records.

Meet Os Ipanemas – Os Ipanemas (1964) EP, for CBS, with a song never released in any other record, including the 1964 LP for CBS, Batida Diferente. Just to refresh our memory, Os Ipanemas is the legendary instrumental band that features Astor Silva (trombone), Marinho (bass), Wilson das Neves (drums and percussion), Rubens Bassini (drums and percussion) and Neco (acoustic guitar).

Os Ipanemas LP is available at Loronix, highly recommended; check the 06 August 2006 archive, it is right there. Tracks include:

01 – Garota de Ipanema (Antonio Carlos Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Berimbau (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Kenya (Astor Silva / Rubens Bassini)
04 – Batida Diferente (Durval Ferreira)


Não tinha este EP.  Graças à Grazi e ao Milan Filipovic, ele agora está disponível no Parallel Realities.

O LP dos Ipanemas ao qual o Zeca se refere foi republicado no Loronix em 27 de julho de 2007 e, portanto, aparecerá aqui posteriormente.
