Hello, good evening! My Internet access stills very limited with extremely slow upload rates. I did not want to keep Loronix with no updates today and my solution was gathering a 10-inch album, which is not an issue since we have truly amazing albums to explore in the format. This one is a perfect example, this is the second LP released by Maestro Radames Gnattali at Continental. For reasons that I cannot understand Radames Gnattali name is not available at the front cover, just like the first one. It is necessary to read the back cover for this information. I would like to remember that covers and individual tracks are always available at the end my writings as individual downloads; the covers are available as direct download links with no Rapidshare. Let’s see.

This is Radames Gnattali – Joias Musicais do Brasil (1954), for Continental, featuring Radames Gnattali selections. arrangements and piano. A small and not credited band makes the accompaniement. All my searches on this album failured, which was the way I choose to retrieve credit information on the good musicians we have here, especially the guitar and accordion player. Tracks include:

01 – Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso / Lamartine Babo)
02 – Despertar da Montanha (Eduardo Souto)
03 – Casinha Pequenina (Tradicional)
04 – Luar de Paquetá (Hermes Fontes / Freire Júnior)
05 – Nuvens (Eduardo Souto)
06 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha / João de Barro)
07 – Guacyra (Hekel Tavares / Joracy Camargo)
08 – Linda Flor (Henrique Vogeler / Cândido Costa / Luiz Peixoto)

Hello, good evening! Today was one of those days that we don’t forget. I was the first out of bed, starting as planned walking outside and purchasing bread and butter for a breakfast that only exists in Brazil. Then, my 12-years old nephew taught me many interesting tricks in Photoshop, some of them of immediate application at Loronix. Later on, we decided to open and play with the inside parts of an old notebook that had his last moments of life with zeca, which destroyed everything with refinement of cruelty. We had lunch together, followed by some guitar playing. That was special for me; I could realize that even with the left hand without touching I could make it for a couple of hours. We had also a birthday cake celebrating my brother anniversary. An incredible day and a perfect closing with an album requested by many loronixers. Let’s see.

This is Sylvio Mazzucca e Sua Orquestra – Baile de Aniversario (1958), for Columbia, featuring renowned Brazilian musicians, some very hard to see on recordings, such like the sax of Jose Fereira Godinho Filho, the legendary Case, Eduardo “Lambari” Pecci from Quarteto Lambari and something that requires confirmation, Rubens Bassini using Rubens de Souza Soares, probably his real name. Maestro Sylvio Mazzucca plays the role of arranger, conductor and vibraphone player. Tracks include:


Sylvio Mazzucca
(arrangements. conduction, vibraphone)

Jose Ferreira Godinho Filho “Case”, Jose Ribamar Balby, Luis Suozzo, Eduardo “Lambari” Pecci, Mario Gomes Vieira
Gentil Contesini, Dorival Auriani, Francisco Dionizio
Orlando Bertozzi, Jose Cassetari, Edmundo Maciel
Luizinho Cangianiello
Armando Mazzucca
Jose Rezala “Turquinho”
Rubens de Souza Soares “Bassini”
Roberto Ditore
Rui Ditore

Track List

01 – Parabéns Pra Você (Happy Birthday To You) (Tradicional) – Feliz Aniversário (Alvarenga / Ranchinho) – Canção de Aniversário (Anniversary Song) (Ivanovici / Jolson / Charles Chaplin)
02 – Chá Cházinho (Sylvio Mazzuca) – With All My Heart (Marcucci / De Angelis) – Tequila (Chuck Rio)

Hello, good evening! I had an intense and very busy day this Friday. I got rid of a lot of paper without any remorse. I could also setup my new working environment and made the fist transfer at my new place.

Meanwhile, I found an album requested by many Loronix friends featuring an instrumental combo from Minas Gerais state. I’m keeping my original text written in August 2006. Let’s see.

Hello, good evening! It is wonderful to be back to Loronix. Thank you for keeping the community and the website alive during my absence. I hope you had quality time here at Loronix and also with your families and friends.

My move is finished and I have much to say about it. Despite almost 10 days since the beginning of the process, writing these lines today is a miracle. I’m enjoying my new place, important for me to be immediately assisted in episodes of hypoglycemia and other boring stuff.

My family was just myself and zecalouro and now we are a true family of 3 adults (my brother and wife) and his two sons, my nephews. Exciting things happened. As soon as he heard about my arrival, my nephew decided to take guitar classes and now plays very well with a few lessons.

The adaptation of zecalouro, a major concern in our new home was instantaneous. He now has the company of other 7 birds and 5 dogs. I cannot remember zeca facing a dog before, and now his favorite sport is riding around the yard mounted on the back of a Labrador.

Loronix IT infrastructure of the Loronix is not yet mounted in the new home. The move took all my money and I need to save some cash to hire an Internet connection and then setup the new environment.

This will be my priority in the coming days. For now, I’m just making albums previously prepared or contributions from our great friends, such like this one, kindly provided by Mr. E., featuring an important musician who never had the chance to be here. Let’s see.

This is Gao – The Melodic Sound of Gao’s Piano (1966), for London, featuring The Ipanema Strings, which is something that I would like very much to know more. The Ipanema Strings are not new to Loronix, they are also backing Neco at Neco’s Guitar and The Ipanema Strings – Velvet Bossa Nova (1966), for the same London and released in the same 1966 year. My searches on The Ipanema Strings did not return consistent information. Perhaps someone can bring additional info on The Ipanema Strings at the comment section. Gao is a Brazilian maestro and pianist, active on recordings from the 1930’s until the late 1960’s, releasing several 78RPMs and a few albums in the “modern” 33RPM 12-inches LP format. Gao is a very old request made by several Loronix’s friends that I’m very pleased to address, thanks to Mr. E. and his always cute transfers. Tracks include:

01 – Murmurando (Mário Rossi / Fon-Fon)
02 – Curare (Bororó)
03 – Apanhei-te Cavaquinho (Ernesto Nazareth)
04 – Flor de Abacate (A. Sandin)
05 – Naquele Tempo (Pixinguinha / Benedito Lacerda)
06 – Da Cor do Pecado (Bororó)
07 – Ai Yoyo (Linda Flor) (Henrique Vogeler)
08 – Saudade (Lauro Miranda)
09 – André de Sapato Novo (André Victor Correia)
10 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha / João de Barro)
11 – Tenebroso (Ernesto Nazareth)
12 – Cabeludo (Gaó)

Dolores Viaja

Hello, good afternoon! I will try to make two updates today, but if I fail, this album starts an interval of some days with no updates. I will be taking care of my move, finally scheduled for tomorrow at 10:30 in the morning.

The change will be made by a specialized company that charges the total hours spent to accomplish the change. For this monitoring, I developed an application that sends from my mobile phone to Loronix dedicated server the GPS coordinates of where I am in intervals of 5 minutes. These coordinates are stored on a mysql database and using Google Maps API, these coordinates are plot in a map, making it possible to watch the move in real time, including the route made to the future place.

Anyway, I would like to send a big THANK YOU to Mr. E. for his understanding of my process and the great help he made putting his professional skills in place to transfer this really rare album to the digital format. Mr. E. is my benchmark on vinyl ripping and cover artwork restoration. The day Mr. E decided to open a music blog, his site will be the KING and the benchmark Loronix will follow. Thanks Mr. E. Let’s see.

This is Dolores Duran – Dolores Duran Viaja (1955), for Copacabana, in the 10-inch format, which is the first Dolores Duran LP. Mr. E. said he never had the chance to see this album before, so I’m confident to say this is a really rare release. Dolores Duran follows the concept of singing a repertoire with songs from several countries on different languages, which is something that she excels. Orquestra Copacabana backs Dolores Duran and the arrangements are in charge of Maestro Lindolpho Gaya and Mozart Brandao.

Dolores Duran Viaja has music from Chile, Canada, USA, Austria, Italy, Spain and Brazil, including the first recording of a song with lyrics in Esperanto, 05 – Nigraj Manteloj. Tracks include:

01 – Sinceridad (G. Perez)
02 – Ma Cabane Au Canada (C. Cohn / M. Brocey / L. Gasté)
03 – Kaiser Waltzer (J. Strauss)
04 – No Other Love (R. Rodgers / O. Hammerstein II)
05 – Nigraj Manteloj (Coimbra) (R. Ferrão / J. Galhardo / O. Baena)
06 – Vieni Sul Mar (Tradicional)
07 – Ojos Verdes (Valverde / León / Quiroga)
08 – Canção da Volta (Antônio Maria / Ismael Netto)


Este disco pode ser buscado no Um que Tenha. A versão lá disponível contém 5 faixas bônus, retiradas de discos 78 RPM:

09 – Que Bom Será (Paulo Marques / Salvador Micelli / Aylce Chaves)

10 – Já Não Interessa (Roberto Faissal / Domicio Costa)

11 – Outono (Billy Blanco)

12 – Tradição (Ismael Silva)

Varios Artistas – Vitrine Odeon (no date)

vitrine Odeon

I received an email from the owner of one of the coolest blogs I know, Toque Musical, which is now up and running on a new website, very similar to the previous one, but I recommend that you follow this link to make sure you will reach the right website, here: http://toque-musicall.blogspot.com. If you like Brazilian music and LPs, Toque Musical is mandatory.

TM (is that your name?) also said he made a long time ago Vitrine Odeon, and kindly sent to Loronix the scan of the original cover. Thanks TM for your great sharing spirit.

Good, the pieces are getting together, and now we need only Clovis Pereira – Ritmos Aluciantes and Elizeth Cardoso – Cancao de Amor audios. I want to thank TM for this update and also remind you again to reach his website at http://toque-musicall.blogspot.com.

Hello, good evening! Everything went wrong today and this is the reason why three covers are available. Perhaps it is the anticipated effect of the move, scheduled for Tuesday, next week, or perhaps just a coincidence. I had an amazing plan. I started with Elizeth Cardoso – Cancao de Amor (1957), a compilation released by Todamerica featuring Elizeth Cardoso phonograms taken from old 78rpm records. I heard it from the start until the end and liked a lot; the repertoire is awesome and features several Brazilian popular music standards.

Unfortunately, the output I got when transferring was really bad, several scratches and a strange background noise. I had to decline. If someone has this album and sharing spirit, please write me using the comment section or my email.

Recovered from Elizeth Cardoso’s trauma, all my attention was turned to another target, a sough after album by Loronix community and LP collectors worldwide, which is Clovis Pereira Ritmos Alucinantes (1957), for the obscure label Repertorio. This is album brings the first Hermeto Pascoal recording as an instrumentalist.

However, I had another problem, the record inside was not Clovis Pereira, but a compilation released by Odeon featuring Aloysio de Oliveira telling the story of high fidelity on side B and various artists on side A. Almost losing my forces, I decided to make it and tell you this long story. Let’s see.

This is Varios Artistas – Vitrine Odeon (no date), for Odeon, featuring Aloysio de Olivera e O Bando da Lua, Maestro Leo Peracchi, Fon-Fon e Sua Orquestra, Mario Reis, Francisco Alves, Steve Bernard e Seu Conjunto and the first track I had the chance to hear with Conjunto Brasil Sonoro, featuring Altamiro Carrilho (flute), Carlos Matos (violao), Chaim Lewak (piano), Agostinho Silva (organ), Norato (trombone), Chiquinho do Acordeom (acordion), Hans (oboe), Jayme Araujo (alto sax), Formiga (piston) e Netinho (clarinet), a constellation of Brazilian musicians.

Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Andreas e Martoni, ele pode ser buscado na RF&E.


Fafa Lemos – Para Ouvir Dancando (1957)

Hello, good evening! It was difficult to decide for an album to be at the first page of Loronix today. All options were very good, solid, but this choice — and perhaps the next ones — is very important. I’m moving from my place to another. I’m leaving this apartment, the place I love and the place I’m living since the beginning of Loronix. The date of my move is still uncertain and can happen at any time. Thus, from now on, all albums at the first page should be very meaningful because Loronix will enter on a hiatus of five or more days until I get set on my new place and ready to continue. So, friends, if Loronix is not updated in the forthcoming days, this is the reason, I will be unplugged and in the middle of a very worrying process for anyone who collect LPs. Let’s see.

This is Fafa Lemos – Para Ouvir Dancando (1957), for RCA Victor, featuring Fafa Lemos, a legendary Brazilian musician, member of the anthological Trio Surdina with Anibal Augusto Sardinha – Garoto – and Chiquinho do Acordeon. Fafa Lemos LPs are always delicious to hear, and I like this one very much. Fafa Lemos plays violin and delivers his “bossa nova” singing on four tracks. Fafa Lemos is backed by a “conjunto” and the musicians were not credited by RCA Victor. Don’t let the “Para Dancar” title cheats you, it is just a marketing approach. Tracks include:

01 – Meu Guarda-chuva (Ubenor Santos / Amâncio de Morais) Fafa Lemos sings
02 – Granfino (Fafá Lemos)
03 – Meu Panamá (Alcebíades Nogueira) Fafa Lemos sings
04 – Rosita (A. Stuart / P. Dupont)
05 – Canarinho Feliz (Hot Canari) (P. Nero)
06 – Joãozinho Boa Pinta (Haroldo Lobo / Geraldo Jacques) Fafa Lemos sings
07 – Cigano no Baião (Garoto)
08 – Se Alguém Disser (Ismael Netto / Reinaldo Dias Leme) Fafa Lemos sings
