Th.Til-BrazilProject2

This is another solid listen provided by one of the most fantastic friends I have the change to meet with Loronix. Let me stand up first before saying this name, Caetano Rodrigues. Just follow this link and be amazed with loads and loads of rare and impossible to find music provided by Caetano.

It is important and an act of respect that all music provided by Caetano Rodrigues be available to the community, and that’s the reason why this album is being reposted in the first page. I’m also missing Caetano’s valuable advice; I learned a lot with Caetano. Anyway, this is also an album that everybody cries for a rebirth. That’s what I had to say. I will keep my 2007 words below with some modifications.

Here we go on Caetano’s international release of the day, actually it is quite a mistake of mine to tag a Toots Thielemans album recorded with Brazilian artists as international. Toots Thielemans has a great identification with the music from Brazil, being here several times of his life, recorded a wonderful album with Elis Regina, performed with several other renowned Brazilian artists, such as Rosinha de Valenca, Sivuca, among others.

This is Toots Thielemans – The Brazil Project Vol. 2 (1993), for Private Music, featuring Toots Thielemans harmonica and Luiz Bonfa, Eliane Elias, Dorival Caymmi, Djavan, Milton Nascimento, Caetano Veloso, among others. Personnel listing explain why this record is considered a “project”. I did not have muscles to type, how big it is. Another self-explanatory release. Thanks Caetano Rodrigues for showing this album to Loronixers. Tracks include:

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

Link original: 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:

Toots Thielemans – The Brasil Project (1992)

Toots Thielemans recorded two tribute albums for Brazilian Music, which are called Brasil Project 1 and 2. Caetano already sent to us the second edition, Brasil Project 2, a very nice album, acclaimed by many Loronixers. I could not wait longer for making Brasil Project 1 as soon arrived. The last track 12 – Bluesette is the main attraction, requested by Beto Kessel, kindly associated by zecalouro as Loronix Ambassador. Beto Kessel is a nice friend, knows everything about Brazilian music and Jazz and I want to dedicate this post to our Ambassador.

This is Toots Thielemans – The Brasil Project (1992), for Private Music, really a project, a great effort matching the harmonica player Toots Thielemans with his Brazilian performer friends, Ivan Lins, Luiz Bonfa, Oscar Castro Neves, Caetano Veloso, Milton Nascimento, among others. It is nice to see photos of a late Luiz Bonfa, available with the music. Bluesette is really the main attraction, a celebration performed by Toots Brazilian friends altogether. Tracks include:

Elis Regina & Toots Thielemans – Aquarela do Brasil (1969)

Link original: Elis Regina & Toots Thielemans – Aquarela do Brasil (1969)
Publicado em: Thursday, June 22, 2006 by zecalouro

A few posts ago, we were introduced to Roberto Menescal – O Conjunto de Roberto Menescal, assembled by Elis Regina for her 1969 European tour. Elis Regina was outstanding even beyond her vocals, she also knew very well how to choose her musicians and arrangers.

This album – Aquarela do Brasil, Toots Thielemans & Elis Regina (1969) was recorded in Sweden during this tour. This record is as good as the last Elis & Tom, maybe better.
