Hello, good evening! I’m really late today, busy and also dueling with my Internet connection since yesterday. Sorry for using Loronix to say such things, but I really feel better sharing, instead of pretending that everything is fine. The quality of services in Brazil has been a tragedy, getting worse everyday. Anyway, let’s talk about happy things now.

This album is all about happiness, it is the first album recorded by this extraordinary Brazilian pianist and composer, Amelia Brandao Neri, also known as Tia Amelia. Last year we made her last album, released in 1980 when Tia Amelia had the age of 83. You can see part of Tia Amelia LP photo in your left and reach her last album here.

This is Tia Amelia com a Banda Vila Rica – Velhas Estampas (1959), for Odeon, a nice and late first album by Tia Amelia, featuring only compositions of her own. The album title was taken from a TV show hosted by Tia Amelia in TV-RIO, where Tia Amelia played piano and remembered stories from the old time. Velhas Estampas brings nice music to Loronixers, really different from everything we are used to hear. Tracks include:

01 – Bordões ao Luar (Tia Amélia)
02 – No Passo (Tia Amélia)
03 – Sorriso de Bruno (Tia Amélia)
04 – Recordando Pattápio (Tia Amélia)
05 – Coco de Alagoas (Tia Amélia)
06 – Carmélia (Tia Amélia)
07 – Chora Coração (Tia Amélia)
08 – Presidente Carmona (Tia Amélia)
09 – Dois Namorados (Tia Amélia)
10 – Gratidão (Tia Amélia)
11 – Sem Nome (Tia Amélia)
12 – Dulce (Tia Amélia)


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Amilcar e Martoni, ele pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

Hello, Good night, friends! Get set to hear something truly amazing. A Mr. X. contribution, really great, this is Amelia Brandao Neri or Tia Amelia, Brazilian pianist, born in 1897 and since the age of four, started her long time friendship with the piano.

This is Tia Amelia – A Bencao Tia Amelia (1980), for Marcus Pereira Discos, recorded by Amelia Brandao Neri at the age of 83. It is hard to describe an album like this and the story of this woman; it is amazing that she recorded this wonderful instrumental LP alone with the piano at this age. Tia Amelia got married at the age of 17 and had to stop with the piano. Her husband died when she was 25 and she had to cope with the rest of her life alone with her three daughters.

Since then, Tia Amelia dedicated all her life to music, being an active pianist and composer. A Bencao Tia Amelia is only Tia Amelia, the piano and her compositions, mainly valsas (waltz) and choros.

It is amazing how she play the piano on such age. Tia Amelia left us three years after this release at the age of 86. Tracks include:

01 – Choro Serenata (Tia Amélia)
02 – Mosquita (Tia Amélia)
03 – Choro Para Minha Filha (Tia Amélia)
04 – Parabéns Pra Você Zé (Tia Amélia)
05 – Maestrissimo Cipó (Tia Amélia)
06 – Bilhete Para Arnaldo Rebello (Tia Amélia)
07 – Conversando Com Minha Irmã (Tia Amélia)
08 – Medalha Com G (Tia Amélia)
09 – Choro Para Fernanda (Tia Amélia)
10 – Maria Alice (Tia Amélia)
