Raphael Rabello & Dino 7 Cordas -  Raphael Rabello & Dino 7 Cordas (1991)

Hello, good evening! I hope everybody had a very productive Monday, as it was mine. I worked beyond my scheduled today, delaying the start my work at Loronix. This is the reason why only a single album is released today. Thus, I decided to show friends an album that worth several other together, a historic album bringing together The Master and his most faithful disciple, two extraordinary musicians, unfortunately, no longer in this planet with us. Let’s see.

This is Raphael Rabello & Dino 7 Cordas (1991), for Kuarup, featuring the legendary violao 7 cordas player Horondino Jose da Silva, also known as Dino 7 Cordas and Raphael Rabello, performing together eleven renditions of a nice selection of Samba and Choro. Dino 7 Cordas was 73 when he went to studio with Raphael Rabello, young enough to be his grandson. The performances are overwhelming, Dino 7 Cordas plays as if he was a kid and Raphael Rabello seems to be so fascinated on a studio with his master that delivers his best. This is the kind of released that you should not miss, no matter if you are a musician or a listener. Tracks include:

Rafael Rabello

Radames Gnattali & Rafael Rabello - Tributo a Garoto (1982)

Hello, good evening! This is the repost of an essential album released in February 2007 featuring two great musicians, Radames Gnattali and Rafael Rabello making a tribute to one of the greatest Brazilian guitar player ever, Anibal Augusto Sardinha, also known as Garoto, a very important artist that in his short life could influence several generations of Brazilian musicians. JOAO-SP provided this record in excellent conditions making possible to make the vinyl transfer with no noise reduction process. Let’s see.

This is Radames Gnattali & Rafael Rabello – Tributo a Garoto (1982), for Funarte, a Brazilian government institute. It is fantastic to hear a very young Rafael Rabello recording an album with the experienced and renowned Radames Gnattali on such unusual formation, piano and violao. The repertoire features on Side A five Garoto compositions while Side B brings a reduced version of Radames Gnattali Concertino para Violao e Orquestra, presented here as Concertino para Violao e Piano. This is a fantastic album and I’m very grateful to JOAO-SP for making this repost viable on perfect conditions, including several scans with lots of information about Garoto and the recording session. Tracks include:



Radames Gnattali
Rafael Rabello
(violao 7 cordas)

Track List

01 – Desvairada (Garoto)
02 – Gente Humilde (Garoto)
03 – Enigmático (Garoto)

Music Video | Elizeth Cardoso & Raphael Rabello (1989)

This music video features an excerpt of a concert performed in Rio de Janeiro, September 1989 by Elizeth Cardoso and Raphael Rabello, which is in my opinion, one of the greatest music video available at Loronix. They recorded together a truly amazing album, which is the last album and the last performance by Elizeth Cardoso that passed away a couple of months before this concert in May 1990. This is a long video with 14 minutes running time, starts with Raphael Rabello performing solo before Elizeth reaches the stage to prove that she was really one of the greatest Brazilian diva. Really overwhelming. Hope uEnjoy!


No Youtube está disponível, em 3 partes, o show completo, que passou em um programa especial da TV Educativa.

Hello, Good Night! Rafael Rabello was recently introduced to Loronixers on an early post, a tribute to Garoto with Maestro Radames Gnattali. I got this video with Rafael Rabello performing Garota de Ipanema, a really unique rendition. A combo, probably featuring the legendary Wilson das Neves on drums, accompanies Rafael. Enjoy this video while zecalouro fix himself with a shower after a long day of Carnaval activities.
Hope uEnjoy!
