Hello, good evening! Wish I have much more energy tonight, because this is a special night and this is a really special post. This is the first of a probably endless series of album that will come to Loronix through a donation. Yes, I said a donation, and not a standard donation, but a complete collection, perhaps more than 700 records, spanning decades of Brazilian popular music.

The one responsible for this fantastic donation is a great friend. We have been together on on-line adventures since the 1980’s decade, a time that Internet was such like a dream and we had a lot of fun with BBSs. By the way, this friend reminds me CentroIn, which was really the best BBS in Rio de Janeiro (this is an easy hint to discover who is zeca!).

I said I’m tired and I’m really exhausted today. It is better and prudent to announce who made this donation later. By now, let’s stay with this suspense atmosphere and this great album never released before at Loronix and hard to believe that has gone out of print. Let’s see.

This is Sivuca – Live at the Village Gate (1973), for Vanguard, made available here with the Brazilian Copacabana issue. I would like to wait a couple of days to release this album in December 15th as a tribute to Sivuca’s passing in 2006, but I could not resist. This album was a missing piece in my collection and, of course, a missing piece at Loronix. Live at Village Gate was recorded at the homonymous Village Gate, a nightclub in New York City, and features Sivuca on his peak, backed by American musicians. I would like to send my best vibrations and wish a nice weekend to everybody. Tracks include:


(vocals, violao, accordion, piano, percussion)

Cindy Kimball
(voice, percussion)
Morris Goldberg
Mervin Bronson
Angel Allende
Sadiq Shabazz

Track List

01 – Adeus Maria Fulô (Sivuca / Humberto Teixeira)
02 – Berimbau (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – It Might Have Been (Sivuca / D. Speropoles)
04 – Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso)
05 – Ain’t no Sunshine (B. Withers)
06 – Marina (Dorival Caymmi)
07 – Coisa Nº 10 (Moacir Santos)
08 – Batucada (Sivuca)

Sivuca & Guitars Unlimited - Let's Vamos

Sivuca & Guitars Unlimited - Let's Vamos-Back

Hello, good evening! I’m very tired today. It was one of those hard days that started very early and finished in the middle of the night. In the other hand, I’m now with that feeling of duty accomplished with several small advances. Although tired, I cannot skip the music scheduled for today at Loronix, which is another nice contribution sponsored by Jorge Mello and one of a few albums he said it was a winner. Let’s see.

This is Sivuca & Guitars Unlimited – Let’s Vamos (1987), for RGE, a Sivuca international collaboration with the legendary guitar duo Guitars Unlimited from Sweeden, lead by Ulf Wakenius. This is one of those albums were everything was works fine, the combination of guitar and accordion is really exciting and the friends of Guitars Unlimited are truly awesome musicians. Peter Almqvist is the other member of Guitars Unlimited. The session also had the participation of Glorinha Gadelha, Luizao and Fernando Pereira, a small group and a GREAT sound. Tracks include:



Guitars Unlimited
Ulf Wakenius, Peter Almqvist

Glorinha Gadelha
Fernando Pereira
(drums, percussion)

Track List

01 – Coisa Nº 10 (Moacir Santos)
02 – Vassourinhas (Mathias da Rocha / Joana Batista Ramos)

Irany Pinto, José Menezes, Moacyr Silva & Sivuca - 4 Azes Em HI-FI

Hello, good evening! I have been away from Loronix in the past two days, but at the same time, I have never been so close to Loronix, acting behind the scenes and accelerating the work of reactivation of broken links. I have good news. Everything is working until October 15 2006 and from a grand total of 100 weeks, 79 are completed fixed up. I estimate additional 7 or 10 days to fix all weeks, and then Loronix should go back to business as usual. I think it is important to keep everybody informed about our progress. Don’t miss the Restoration Status Panel, always close to the first post.

Don’t miss also this truly amazing release, another album sent by Jorge Mello to our community. Let’s see.

This is Irany Pinto, Jose Menezes, Moacyr Silva, & Sivuca – 4 Azes em HI-FI (1958), for Copacabana. I think this cover and the musicians in this session make leads my writing to something not necessary, but I would like to say this album is not a compilation, they perform together across the whole session, with highlights to each one at specific tracks. Tracks include:


Irany Pinto
Jose Menezes
Moacyr Silva
(tenor sax)

Track List

01 – Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu (Domenico Modugno / Pazzaglia Franco Migliacci) – MOACYR SILVA
02 – Violão Em Samba (José Menezes) – SIVUCA
03 – Zitto-zitto-zitto (Armando Romeo) – IRANY PINTO
04 – Guerra Sem Paz (José Menezes / Jorge Murad) – JOSE MENEZES
05 – Quero-te Assim (Tito Madi) – MOACYR SILVA
06 – Dizzy Fingers (Z. Confrey) – SIVUCA

10 – O Samba da Cidade (Vicente Paiva / Chianca de Garcia) – SIVUCA
11 – Nós Quatro (José Menezes) – JOSE MENEZES

Sivuca - Um Pe No Asfalto Um Pe na Buraqueira (1990)-BACK

This is a chance and also a hint to new friends or those who are taking the first steps with Brazilian music to get along with a great artist, last released at Loronix almost four months ago. I’m talking about Severino Dias de Oliveira, or just Sivuca, a special musician, arranger, accordionist, composer, being also a multi instrumentalist. Sivuca had a successful international career, performing with Radames Gnattali, Baden Powell, Toots Thielemans, among many others. Let’s see.

This is Sivuca – Um Pe no Asfalto – Um Pe na Buraqueira (1990), for Copacabana, featuring Sivuca at his best, playing instrumental tunes with accordion. This album is delicious to hear and I cannot understand the reason to never being reissued on CD, such like the last album by Quarteto Negro. Loronix Preview Center features the title track, 02 – Um Pe no Asfalto, Um Pe na Buraqueira. I’m also bringing back from Loronix archives a music video with Sivuca performing Ceu e Mar in Sweden, 1968. Rildo Hora and Sivuca’s wife Gloria Gadelha are special guests, as detailed on track listing. Tracks include:

01 – Bom e Bonito (Oswaldinho do Acordeom)
02 – Um Pé no Asfalto Outro na Buraqueira (Dominguinhos)
03 – Casa Amarela (Sivuca)
04 – Forró da Gente (Cecéu) with Glória Gadelha
05 – Entortando o Forró (Jorjão)
06 – Quem Disse Que o Frevo Acabou (Moraes Moreira / Glória Gadelha) with Glória Gadelha
07 – Sanhauá (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha)
08 – Arco-íris (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha) with Rildo Hora
09 – Brejo das Freiras (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha)
10 – Guararema (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha)

Airto Moreira - Seeds on the Ground LP (1971)-BACK
This album is so great and so awaited by Loronixers that we will make something really different here, releasing both LP and CD versions. By the way, I have been discussing the value of Bonus Tracks on CD reissues with a friend and we came to a conclusion this tracks are not really useful and sometimes they even spoil the listening experience. Additionally, I think on most cases bonus tracks are some sort of studio leftovers and they were not included as they were not the artist will at that time. Anyway, terrific album and surprisingly out of print. Let’s see.This is Airto Moreira – Seeds on the Ground | The Natural Sound of Airto (1971), for Buddha Records, featuring a constellation of musicians, such as Hermeto Pascoal, Flora Purim, Dom Um Romao, Sivuca and others. This is the kind of self-explanatory release and I just like to thanks the group of friends that made available the album and the original fist issue cover artwork, great accomplishment to Loronix and great teamwork. I’m also curious to check which version, CD or LP, will be the most popular in the forthcoming days. Tracks include:

Airto Moreira
(drums, percussion, berimbau, vocal)
Flora Purim
Hermeto Pascoal
(harpsichord, flute, keyboards, bass, violao, piano, Japanese sapho)
Ron Carter
(bass, cello, cello bass)
Severino de Oliveira
(viola, viola caipira, accordion, organ)
Dom Um Romao

LP Track List

01 – Andei (I Walked) (Hermeto Pascoal)
02 – O Sonho (Moon Dreams) (Jay Livingston / R. Evans)
03 – Uri (Wind) (Hermeto Pascoal / Googie)
04 – Papo Furado (Jive Talking) (Hermeto Pascoal)

Sivuca – Vou Vida Afora (1982)

Link original: Sivuca – Vou Vida Afora (1982)
Publicado em: Wednesday, October 10, 2007 by zecalouro

This night was very special and deserves to be closed with a special artist. Sivuca is a very special artist; he is part of a group of a few selected artists that everybody likes. Every Sivuca album I spin makes me feel better, saving those days that you are not in the mood of anything. Today is not the case, but as I said, it is a special day.

This is Sivuca – Vou Vida Afora (1982), for Copacabana, featuring the very special guest Quarteto em Cy on tracks 04 – Imaginacao and 07 – Arapua Fazendo Mel and Lucinha Lins on track 09 – Bailado, featuring arrangements by Ivan Lins. Such like the last Copacabana Sivuca album from 1979, Sivuca sings, which is something unique from my perspective. Personnel listing was not delivered by Copacabana, but Sivuca plays accordion in all tracks, including the instrumental tracks 05, 06 and 10. Tracks include:

01 – Forró da Bicharada (Sivuca / Paulinho Tapajós)
02 – Vou Vida Afora (Sivuca)
03 – Sonho de Neve (Sivuca / Paulinho Tapajós)
04 – Imaginação (Sivuca / Afonso Gadelha / Ana Maria Duveen) with Quarteto Em Cy
05 – Bate Tome Toca e Cai (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha)
06 – Coisas (Moacir Santos)
07 – Arapuã Fazendo Mel (Sivuca / Paulinho Tapajós) with Quarteto Em Cy
08 – Nunca Mais Eu Vi Esperança (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha)
09 – Bailado (Sivuca / Paulinho Tapajós) with Lucinha Lins
10 – Fim de Leilão (Julinho do Acordeom)

Sivuca & Toots Thielemans – Chiko’s Bar (1986)

Publicado em: Wednesday, September 12, 2007 by zecalouro

I was looking for this album since Loronix beginning and I found it with cvllos on a given vinyl expedition last month. The price was 1 Real (US$ .50) and when you find something you want by this price you just take it with no checking. First thing I did when arrived home was to put it to spin and I got scared when I saw a blue Copacabana label in the center of the vinyl and the word of Bienvenido Granda as main performer.

Parrots have no patience and are really focused. Then I remembered that someone sent it a long time ago as a contribution and I could not make it without the cover scans. That’s why we have here a blend of my cover with the files sent by a friend that did a pretty nice work. Let’s see.

This is Sivuca & Toots Thielemans – Chiko’s Bar (1986), for Sonet. I thought this album was a live recording of a concert at Chiko’s Bar nightclub, but it is an studio session, part of a project called “Rendez vous in Rio”, developed by Sonet producer Rune Ofwerman. Top-notch Brazilian musicians were in this session, as described at personnel listing, just before tracks. Tracks include:


(accordion, vocal)
Toots Thielemans
Luiz Avelar
Ricardo Silveira
Paulinho Braga
Ohana, Marcal
Clarence Ofwerman
(synthesizer, arrangements)

Track List

01 – I Just Called To Sy I Love You (Stevie Wonder)
02 – Vai Passar (Francis Hime / Chico Buarque de Hollanda)
03 – Sandra (Luiz Avellar)
04 – Imagine (John Lennon)
05 – Out of Nowhere (Eddie Heyman / Johnny Green)
06 – Pela Luz dos Olhos Teus (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – There’s no Greater Love (Johnny Spencer)
08 – Luz do Sol (Caetano Veloso)
