PhilMusical is a veteran blogger, owner and maintainer of Phil Musical Lounge Corner at that was created months or years before Loronix, I’m not sure. Phil came out of the blue a couple of days ago at CBox with some offers to Loronix and I think he is delivering a great find to our community. In spite of this cover artwork, featuring a picture of an Inca warrior (perhaps Maia?) from Peru that has nothing to do with Brazil, this album is very, very, very good. Believe me, this is truly awesome and I could not wait longer to ask Phil for another vinyl ripping or additional info. Let’s see.

This is The Brasileros – Bossa Nova (1963), for Diplomat, featuring jazzy instrumental renditions of Bossa Nova standards, probably performed by US musicians, they are not credited and I could not find any further information about this little piece of great music. This is the kind of album that you will be spinning over and over again for many years and it is not one of those impossible to find LPs, it is available on e-Bay from many sellers by an affordable price. Run for them, I think people will run for The Brasileros as soon as taking this one for a hearing. Thanks once again Phil. Tracks include:

01 – Desafinado
02 – One Note Samba
03 – When Johnny Comes Marching Home
04 – Sugar Loaf
05 – Bossa Nova Blues
06 – Sazella de Rio
07 – Promenade San Paulo
08 – In The Shade of the Old Apple Tree
09 – Desarama
10 – Witch Hazel
