Laurindo Almeida & Ray Turner - Impressões do Brasil

Hello, good evening! I am very happy to update Loronix after four days, which is the largest hiatus since Loronix creation two years ago. I hope you missed myself and new music such as I did. There were four days, but seems to be four years, in the third night I had a dream I was in the middle of amazing blog posts. Anyway, I will need some adaptation time until getting the old pace, and this is the reason why I’m making this really nice record in the hope you don’t read me, kindly sent and strongly recommended by Jorge Mello. Let’s see.

This is Laurindo Almeida e Ray Turner – Impressoes do Brasil (1957), for Capitol, featuring Laurindo Almeida guitar and Ray Turner piano performing a Brazilian repertoire with selected cuts from Radames Gnattali, Heitor Villa Lobos, Laurindo Almeida and the legendary Garoto. Maestro Radames Gnattali has the whole side A, the only side the unknown Ray Turner plays, while side B features two Laurindo Almeida compositions, one Villa Lobos choro and three Garoto tunes performed by Laurindo, which are the ones that I like most and worth the entire album. Thanks Jorge Mello for this first out of several unknown Laurindo Almeida LPs. Tracks include:

01 – Allegro – Concertino Nr. 2 para Violao e Piano (Radamés Gnattali)
02 – Adagio – Concertino Nr. 2 para Violao e Piano (Radamés Gnattali)
03 – Presto – Concertino Nr. 2 para Violao e Piano (Radamés Gnattali)
04 – Saudade (Radamés Gnattali)
05 – Choro Triste (Garoto)
06 – Choro Gracioso (Garoto)
07 – Nosso Choro (Garoto)
08 – Serenata (Laurindo Almeida)
09 – Crepúsculo Em Copacabana (Laurindo Almeida)
10 – Gavotta-choro (Villa-Lobos)
