Hello, good evening! We never started a day late as today, but the reason is not an ordinary IT problem and I’m really glad for being here to introduce new music to Loronixers, such as I’m doing right now, delivering the first album of a very important Brazilian maestro to our community, which is Maestro Oswaldo Borba. Let’s see.

This is Oswaldo Borba e Sua Orquestra – Baile de Formatura (1958), for Odeon. I had to do my best to restore this cover artwork, and I did not make it as deserved. I’m sure my poor skills on image processing are getting worse again. Anyway, as you can see at the marks on the legs of both dancers, this album spent a time under the water, but in the other hand, the vinyl was quite perfect. Maestro Oswaldo Borba delivers “Para Dancar” renditions of a repertoire based on Brazilian and international standards, with credited musicians this time. Tracks include:


Oswaldo Borba
(arranger, orchestra conducer)

Edward Santos
Waldemar Moura
Geraldo Miranda
Luis Medes
Arcy Barbosa de Oliveira
(sax alto, clarinet)
Walter Rosa
(sax tenor)

Track List

01 – Rato Rato (Casemiro Rocha / Claudino Costa)
02 – Birth Of The Blues (R. Henderson / De Sylva / L. Brown)
03 – El Baile Del Pinguino (E. D. Brito)

Hello, good evening! Let’s start this Sunday showing Loronixers a kind of album that is not been released for several weeks, an orchestra album with renditions of Brazilian standards in the Samba style. Brazilian maestros such like Portinho (the best in the style), Carioca and Zaccarias delivered several ones in the 60’s, but this one is different, featuring two Maestros, both credited as the main performers. Let’s see.

This is Astor Silva & Oswaldo Borba – Metais em Brasa no Samba (1962), for Philips, featuring Astor Silva in charge of arrangements and Oswaldo Borba as orchestra director and conductor. I’m having a special pleasure to show this album, a Loronix friend from Hungary wrote me today asking support for the creation of an international Astor Silva fan club. He said he could only know Astor Silva with Loronix and he is now crazy for recordings and anything else from the Maestro. This is fantastic and I will keep Loronixers informed as he better develop the idea. Tracks include:

01 – Samba de Uma Nota Só (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
02 – Brasiliana Nº 1 (Astor Silva)
03 – Chega de Saudade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Arrasta a Sandália (Osvaldo Vasques “Baiaco” / Aurélio Gomes)
05 – Chora Tua Tristeza (Oscar Castro Neves / Luvercy Fiorini)
06 – O Que É Que a Baiana Tem (Dorival Caymmi)
07 – O Samba da Minha Terra (Dorival Caymmi)
08 – Palhaçada (Haroldo Barbosa / Luis Reis)
09 – Minha Palhoça (J. Cascata)
10 – A Felicidade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
11 – Menina Moça (Luis Antônio)
12 – Maracangalha (Dorival Caymmi)
