Paulo Moura Hepteto

I would like to say “Hello, good evening!”, but I really can’t. Two renowned Brazilian artists left us in a range of 5 days, drags me to a very sad mood. And on top of several things this is a week of unexpected hard work. In the other hand, life has been really good to our community in the last days with Loronix appearing once again on ESPN Brasil (the video is coming soon) and also at a very important website from a journalist that loves the music from Brazil such like us, Luiz Nassif that keeps us informed about everything that happens in Brazil and also Brazilian music.

Additionally, the friends from Paulo Moura website left a message asking our help to find out albums that Paulo Moura is looking for. I’m making this album available to Loronixers and also to Paulo Moura, which is his first LP in the legendary label Equipe. Let’s see.

This is Paulo Moura Hepteto – Mensagem (1968), for Equipe, featuring Paulo Moura alto sax forming a heptet with a constellation of top-notch Brazilian musicians. Tracks include:


Paulo Moura
(alto sax, musical direction)
Oberdan Magalhaes
(tenor sax)

Cesario Constancio
Luiz Carlos
Wagner Tiso
Paschoal Meirelles

Track List

Hello, good evening! Today I want to start with another nice contribution sponsored by a great friend, the might AdHoc, that rocks!

Until further notice, AdHoc has the command, at least by his username. AdHoc says this cover is not good enough to Loronix. I say this cover is great! AdHoc seems to be a Photoshop Master on his Macintosh; his restorations are always impeccable, if PhotoShop exists on Mac platform. Anyway, this is another AdHoc contribution. Let’s see.

This is Clara Sverner & Paulo Moura – Interpretam Pixinguinha (1988), for Columbia, featuring the classical piano of Clara Sverner and the clarinet of Paulo Moura performing a repertoire 100% dedicated to Pixinguinha. This is third out of three albums released by Clara Sverner and Paulo Moura, always delivering a nice blend of classical and popular music. I was very anxious throughout the whole day and this album was a perfect relief, the fine Pixinguinha compositions is all about quietness and peace that we all need in our lives. Tracks include:


Clara Sverner

Quarteto Negro - Quarteto Negro (1987)

Hello, good evening! In the last days, I was trying to identify the reason of a major increase of Loronix. Just as an example, February was a record in number of visits and we know that February is a month with only 29 days and includes Carnaval and school holidays, a month that many friends use to left the city on trips. The answer came today and I was very pleased to confirm that our new translation service is responsible, improving the rate of people that make 2 or more visitors at Loronix. This is awesome response. Anyway, why talking about these matters? Perhaps it is my way to show how I’m happy with this fast 2008 start at Loronix.

Today we will have great albums, starting with this one, never released in CD and pretty unknown to everybody. Let’s see.

This is Quarteto Negro – Quarteto Negro (1987), for Kuarup, featuring the internationally acclaimed Paulo Moura, the percussionist Djalma Correa, the bassist Jorge Degas and the Brazilian singer Zeze Motta, assembled to release this first and only album, which is a fantastic instrumental album mixing Jazz, Samba and Afro rhythms. Zeze Motta delivers vocals on five out of 10 tracks, but what amazed me most at Quarteto Negro is the percussion delivered by Djalma Correa, which is a really gifted musician. Loronix Preview Center features 01 – Folozinha (Marku Ribas / Reinaldo Amaral), try it and you will not resist the overall Quarteto Negro experience. Tracks include:



Paulo Moura
(clarinet and sax at 01, 03, 10)

Zeze Motta
(vocals at 01, 03, 05, 06, 09)


Jorge Degas
(bass, violao, vocals)
Djalma Correa

Track List

01 – Folôzinha (Marku Ribas / Reinaldo Amaral)
02 – Sobre as Ondas (Jorge Degas)
03 – Merengue (Adler São Luis)
04 – Festas da Xica (Paulo Moura)
05 – Semba (Jorge Degas / Zezé Motta)
06 – Zumbi (A Felicidade Guerreira) (Gilberto Gil / Waly Salomão)
07 – Brucutú (Jorge Degas / Djalma Correia)
08 – Geísa (Roberto Guima)

Paulo Moura - Interpreta Radames Gnattali (1959)

AdHoc really rocks! He made my week with this reposting. It seems he reads my mind. I have been wondering last Sunday if I would have a chance to repost this essential album, quite impossible to find on vinyl and for reasons that I cannot explain, very difficult to find on its 1995 CD reissue. Actually, this album deserves to be always commercially available. Thanks once again AdHoc, I can’t stop thinking on your next contribution. Perhaps you will read my mind again. Let’s see.

This is Paulo Moura – Paulo Moura Interpreta Radames Gnattali (1959), for Continental, presented here by AdHoc’s 1995 remastered CD reissue with upgrades on cover artwork, standard MP3s, FLAC files and the previous missing track 08 – Romance. This little 10-inch features Radames Gnattali compositions especially written for Paulo Moura, perhaps the first time in Brazil that a great Maestro and composer writes music to be recorded for a given musician, according with Haroldo Eiras liner notes. AdHoc says something that I totally agree, this album makes us feel very good, in peace, and that’s my wish to everyone engaged on Loronix community today, peace. Tracks include:


Paulo Moura
(sax alto)
Radames Gnattali
Baden Powell
Vidal or Paulo

Track List

01 – Monotonia (Radamés Gnattali)
02 – Devaneio (Radamés Gnattali)
03 – Nostalgia (Radamés Gnattali)
04 – Carioca 1959 (Radamés Gnattali)
05 – Sempre a Sonhar (Radamés Gnattali)

Hello, good evening! I spent a couple of months until decide to show this album to Loronixers. This is a perfect blend between popular and classical music and one of my favorites in the style. The title is big such as the music we have inside. The only issue, a major issue by the way, is the front cover. I got this album on a really bad condition and the front cover was taken away, my apologies for this one, it is the best I could make as a replacement. If you have a high-quality scan or even a thumbnail of this cover, please tell us, it will be really appreciated. Let’s see.

This is Paulo Moura, Formiga, Altamirro Carilho e Abel Ferreira – Paulo Moura, Formiga, Altamirro Carilho e Abel Ferreira Interpretam Vivaldi, Webber, Purcell e Villa Lobos com a Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira sob a Regencia de Julio Medalha (1977), for Som Livre. This giant title explains almost everything, we have here Orquestra Sinfonica Brasileira conduced by Maestro Julio Medalha performing classical music, four tracks with each one having the participation of the four main performers. I think it will be very difficult to appear another album with a bigger title, almost a paragraph. Waltel Branco was also in this session playing alaude at Vivaldi track. I really recommend this beautiful album. Tracks include:

Personnel & Track List

Maestro Formiga
Fantasia para Trompete em Re e Orquestra

Hello, good evening! Let’s start this Saturday with another classy contribution by cvllos, featuring Clara Sverner and Paulo Moura. It was very wise of cvllos to send this one for the weekend. It’s cold in Rio de Janeiro and this album is a perfect match, at least with my mood today. Let’s see.

Hello, Good Evening! I was invited by Irinea Ribeiro to watch her concert tonight with Clarisse Grova. Irinea and Clarisse will be performing at Panorama, Rua Joao Lira, 95 / 19, 9pm. Irinea said this concert has a great influence of Loronix and the repertoire is based on the music she has the chance to hear again at Loronix. This is really great! Thanks Irinea.

Loronixers Cariocas, quem estiver sem programa, compareça, que estiver com um programa de índio, cancele e compareça também. É hoje as 21 horas no Panorama, Rua Joao Lira, 95 19 andar, Leblon.

I’m leaving, but Loronixers will stay in very good company. Since we start making Paulo Moura music more often, I received requests and recommendations to make available one of his albums in collaboration with the Brazilian pianist Clara Sverner. It was not that easy to find this one, perhaps the only one out of print. Let’s see.

Here is an album were Brazilian popular music meets Brazilian classical music on a breathtaking and unique session, one of a kind at Loronix and very hard to review and describe by this humble parrot.

I think you should not miss this one, let’s see.

This is Paulo Moura, Clara Sverner, Turibio Santos e Olivia Byington – Encontro (1984), for Quarup. Paulo Moura has been with us in the earlier posts and it is well known to Loronxiers.

When Paulo Moura – Paulo Moura Interpreta Radames Gnattali (1957) was released, I didn’t realize how popular and how adored he was by Loronixers. Paulo Moura released several instrumental albums in the 60’s with most of them out of print. I think it is mandatory to show a second album by Paulo Moura from this phase. Let’s see.

This is Paulo Moura Quarteto – Paulo Moura Quarteto (1968), for Equipe. Paulo Moura recorded three albums for the small, but really influent Equipe label. These albums are considered the best Paulo Moura records in the 60’s and Paulo Moura Quarteto is perhaps the least known of these three. Paulo Moura delivers solid and natural improvisations on top of a Bossa Nova repertoire with a band that includes the young legends Wagner Tiso, Paschoal Meirelles and Luiz Carlos. Pretty self-explanatory release that I hope Loronixers will give a great response. Tracks include:


Paulo Moura
(sax alto)
Wagner Tiso
Luis Carlos
Paschoal Meirelles

Track List

01 – Lamento do Morro (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Eu e a Brisa (Johnny Alf)
03 – Meu Lugar (Luis Fernando Werneck / Danilo Caymmi / Fernando Brant)
04 – Aos Pés da Santa Cruz (Marino Pinto / Zé da Zilda)
05 – Yardbird Suíte (C. Parker)
06 – Sá Marina (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
07 – Retrato de Benny Carter (Wagner Tiso)

Paulo Moura e Os Batutas – Pixinguinha (1996) Ao Vivo no Teatro Carlos Gomes

Publicado em: THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 2006


This album has something special, mainly because I could not resist making this post even though this is not out of print and it is pretty recent (1996). We have here a Beautiful Chorinho album recorded by Paulo Moura and Os Batutas on Teatro Carlos Gomes, 1996, Rio de Janeiro. Evaluate this, buy the record later; it is an essential Chorinho record.

This tribute to album presents 16 tracks of classic choro music by one of Brazil’s most important composers of all time, Alfredo da Rocha Viana Júnior, better known as Pixinguinha. Born in 1897, Pixinguinha got that nickname from his grandmother. One of 14 brothers and sisters, he began playing cavaquinho at the early age of 11. It was also between 11 and 12 years of age when he composed his first choro, “Lata de Leite.” However, it was not until he was 15 years old that he began to play professionally.

The rest is a long story that you will not resist to go though after listening to Paulo Moura e Os Batutas – Pixinguinha.
