Hello, good evening! In the year of 1978, RCA released a tribute album in honor of Bossa Nova 20th year’s anniversary, “Velha” Bossa Nova, featuring musicians from RCA cast or from the record labels later acquired or merged by or with RCA. This is the short intro of one of the best compilations I have heard in decades. Believe me? Let’s see.

This is “Velha” Bossa Nova (1978), for RCA Candem, from now, the album to use as the perfect introduction for those who want to know Bossa Nova on a single spin. I made some scans with relevant information about each track, including performer and year of recording. This album should guarantee a solid listing across this weekend. Tracks include:

Varios Artistas – Vitrine Odeon (no date)

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: 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

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.

Publicado em: Tuesday, December 30, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! I said yesterday that I would be breaking today the series of posts from the 1970’s decade with something very old. I’m paying my bill with the oldest album I could find here, from 1955. I love the records made by Musidisc in the 1950’s. The artwork is ahead of that time and was probably made by a single person since the style is unique and very easy to identify.

Who is this artist? This is something we can ask to Jorge Mello, just visiting his new website, featuring his writing and Brazilian music vintage pictures never seen before. You can reach the new Jorge Mello’s website at Let’s see.

This is No Mundo do Samba | Volume 1 (1955), for Musidisc, a compilation of Samba tunes performed by artists from Musidisc cast, featuring Leo Peracchi, Trio Surdina, Britinho, Djalma Ferreira, Roberto Luna and an artist that I never heard before, Rud Wharton, which is probably a well-known musician recording by Musidisc under a nickname. Tracks include:

01 – Gafieira (Djalma Ferreira) Djalma Ferreira
02 – Você É Tormento (Nilo Sergio / Garoto) Leo Peracchi e Orquestra
03 – Vingança (Lupicínio Rodrigues) Trio Surdina
04 – Dora (Dorival Caymmi) Rud Wharton
05 – No Tabuleiro da Baiana (Ary Barroso) Léo Peracchi e Orquestra
06 – Lilian Britinho
07 – Está Desfeito (Manezinho Araújo / David Raw / Aldacir Louro) Roberto Luna
08 – Dia de Sol (João Leal Brito ”Britinho”) – Casinha da Colina (Adpt. João Leal Brito ”Britinho”) Nova Ilusão (José Menezes / Luis Bittencourt) Britinho

Os Cobras, Chaim Lewak, Moacyr Silva, Waltel Branco, Ed Maciel, Paulinho & Julinho Barbosa - Os Cobras

Hello, good evening! Here we go on the second album provided by the mysterious member of Ignacio’s dynasty, Jose Ignacio Jr. kindly referred as JIN at his close circle of friends in Rio. I’m glad the fire at his grandfather apartment did not burn this album, featuring a constellation of Brazilian musicians. Actually, I did not know this record existence, and it is important to make clear there is another Os Cobras albums in the same concept, released by RCA Victor in 1964, Os Cobras – O LP. Thanks JIN for this solid addition to Loronix. Let’s see.

This is Moacyr Silva, Chaim Lewak, Julinho Barbosa, Waltel Branco, Edmundo Maciel e Paulinho Baterista – Os Cobras (1960), for Copacabana, presented here as a 1970 Beverly reissue, which is Copacabana subsidiary. This album is self explanatory, it impossible to ignore a record featuring such great artists, especially Moacyr Silva, not listed at Loronix first page since the beginning of 2008. Tracks include:


Moacyr Silva

Vários Artistas - Elenco Première

Hello, good morning! My sleeping strategy is completely destabilized this week. I’m working on something that requires an above the average dedication and thinking and as the last activity of my agenda, I’m completely exhausted at Loronix time. Some kind of tractor ray drags me to bed every night. I will try to use a slot during the day to update Loronix and get in touch with the community. Stay tuned, new posts can appear on not usual times this week.

This is the post I’ve been trying to accomplish since Sunday, a response to an increasing demand for authentic Bossa Nova music from the 60’s. Elenco Premiere is the 6th album released by Aloysio de Oliveira legendary Elenco Label as ME-6, a wonderful compilation with tracks taken from the first five Elenco albums, released as ME-1 until ME-5.

Elenco Premier is ME-6, the last 1963 release. These albums covers are amazing and were designed by Cesar Villela, and they have something in common. Who can tell me what it is? Tracks include:

Vinícius De Moraes & Odette Lara - Vinicius & Odette Lara

05 – Só Por Amor
08 – Berimbau
11 – Hoje Só

Chega de Saudade - Compilação 50 Anos da Bossa Nova 02

Exactly 50 years ago, precisely at 10 July 1958, Joao Gilberto started the studio session to record the landmark Bossa Nova album Chega de Saudade. This image was created with 26 albums covers with something in common, which one has a different rendition of Chega de Saudade. This is a really nice compilation assembled by Martoni on his homage to Bossa Nova 50th Anniversary, available on his website, following this link.

Varios Artistas – Introducao (1965)

Link original: Varios Artistas – Introducao (1965)
Publicado em: Wednesday, April 23, 2008 by zecalouro


Hello, good evening! There is a curiosity behind this post and this album, I will tell you. This is a contribution made in December 2006 by our great friend Caetano Rodrigues and at that time, I could not understand what was behind this album, except the concept of presenting new artists, which is quite clear through the title, Introducao. However, I did not understand the reason of the phrase “Teenager Series” in the lower right.

We received this week the visit of Juliana Mingotti, who said to be looking for this album for a couple of years. Juliana is the daughter of Wagner Mingotti, author of the first track and pianist of Wan Trio, participating also at the second track as bassist. Wan Trio is the best this album has to offer, recorded by Wagner Mingotti when he was sixteen and probably, all others are below eighteen.

In a quick search, I could realize that Silvinha was the participant that could develop a solid career and according with Juliana, Wagner Mingotti decided to terminate his artistic career after recording this album, which is again available for everyone to know the work of Wagner and all artists at this session. I am keeping the original text, with some modifications. Let’s see.

This is Introducao (1965), for Mocambo, a unique opportunity to listen for the fist time several artists that we never heard before, such as: Wan Trio – Bossa Jazz, Patricia – Singer, Impulso 4 – Bossa Jazz (this one everybody knows), Tony Carbonell – Instrumental, Quinteto Berimbossa – Bossa Jazz, Joao Paulo – Singer, Silvinha – Singer, Octons – Instrumental and Ezequiel – Singer. Most of these artists were probably not successful on their careers and this is what makes this LP a very interesting piece. Tracks include:

01 – Selvagem (Wagner Mingotti) – Wan Trio
02 – Onde Está Você (Oscar Castro Neves) – Patrícia
03 – Morte de Um Deus de Sal (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli) – Impulso 4
04 – Desarmonia (Tony Carbonell) – Tony Carbonell
05 – Blues Walk (C. Brown) – Quinteto Berimbossa
06 – História de Duas Crianças (Tony Carbonell / Hernesto Domingues) – João Paulo
07 – Maria Moita (Carlos Lyra) – Silvinha
08 – Tokio’s Blue (H. Silver) – Octons
09 – Paz e Amor (Ezequiel Silva / João Magalhães) – Ezequiel
10 – A Felicidade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes) – Quinteto Berimbossa

Show Discomunal

I was surprised today when I came back to this album and found no comments on it. I thought a list of more than 10 comments was available. Anyway, first thing is a required Millor Fernandes introduction for friends outside of Brazil; Millor Fernandes is a Brazilian cartoonist, humorist, writer and a key figure on Brazilian music. Being active as journalist since the late 30’s, Millor founded with Ziraldo, Jaguar and others, the legendary satirical newspaper O Pasquim, in the middle of the toughest Brazilian dictatorship years. Millor Fernandes hosts this concert, recorded live in 1968 at Teatro Toneleros. Let’s see.

This is Discomunal (1968), for MIS, an anthological concert with the participation of Antonio Carlos Jobim as a temporary member of the short living vocal group Quarteto 004, Baden Powell, Marcia, Paulo Moura Hepteto, Chico Buarque, Franklin and Eumir Deodato, in charge of arrangements and music direction. Tracks include:

V Festival Internacional da Canção Popular

I have been wondering why Loronix does not have a representative number of recordings from the legendaries Festivais da Cancao, a fever in Brazilian music by the end of the 60’s decade. I have some assumptions, in spite of its importance, perhaps they are not popular among our community or I failed on making the choices in the few albums already available. Perhaps the root cause is my total ignorance about the period, anyway, I’m trying to fix this approach with a new album, which seems quite appropriate considering the performers and repertoire. Let’s see.

This is V Festival Internacional da Cancao Vol. 2 (1970), for Odeon. First of all, as an international festival, why this album does not feature international performers? Additionally, why the albums in the style do not bring information about the winners and prizes? Better show this one and open the discussion. Do not miss the music videos featuring Geraldo Vandre performing with Trio Maraya and Quarteto Novo on some Festival da Cancao edition. It is very curious to see a very young Hermeto Pascoal and all Quarteto Novo members. Loronix Preview Center features 07 – Feira Moderna, performed by Som Imaginario. Tracks include:

The Performers

Wilson Simonal
Silvio Cesar
Antonio Adolfo e a Brazuca
Beth Carvalho e As Gatas
Golden Boys
Ellen de Lima
Som Imaginario
Guilherme Lamounier

Track List

01 – Hino do Festival Internacional (Miguel Gustavo) with Wilson Simonal
02 – Quem Tem Tempo Pra Ser Meu Amigo (Alberto Land) with Silvio César
03 – Quebra-cabeça (Paulinho Soares / Marcello Silva) with Antônio Adolfo e A Brazuca
04 – A Velha Porta (Beth Carvalho) with Beth Carvalho e As Gatas
05 – Hipnose (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi) with Golden Boys
06 – Sonho de Carochinha (Codó / Heloísa Serra) with Ellen de Lima

Grandes Instrumentistas Brasileiros (1977)

Hello, good evening! Here we go on an album that I was tracking down for many months. This is a very nice compilation of remastered tracks taken from 78rpm released by Continental between 1932 and 1965 focusing instrumental musicians. I think Brazilian music researchers should take a carefully attention to this album featuring really important artists with original recordings not very easy to find. If do not follow on this category, you should take it by the opportunity of hearing the music from Brazil recorded before Bossa Nova creation. I would like to say thank you to Leo Rugero, musician and a tireless Brazilian music researcher for pointing this album and a very interest artist inside. Let’s see.

This is Grandes Instrumentistas Brasileiros (1978), for Continental, featuring several artists and their original remastered recordings taken from Continental 78RPM releases. Among giants like Jacob do Bandolim, Abel Ferreira, Dilermando Reis, Radames Gnattali and others; this album features an original recording and a participation of the legendary Pereira Filho, a fascinating musician, and precursor in the use of electric guitar in Brazil. Track 06 – Edinho no Choro (Pereira Filho) features Pereira Filho performing with Conjunto and electric guitar in 1945, you should not miss it, Pereira Filho is an amazing musician and totally unknown to the public. Loronix Preview Center features the amazing Edinho no Choro. Tracks include:

 Carinhoso - Trilha Sonora Original (1973)
Hello, good evening! Here we go on another TV Globo original sound track of one of those novels of the good old days, which in my opinion is between the late 60’s until the mid 70’s. What makes these OSTs different from today is the artists selection, always featuring giants such like Marcos Valle, Erlon Chaves and Luiz Eca, mixed with not well-know by the mass audiences, but really worth checking artists, such like Piry Reis, Trama and Fernando Leporace, featured on this OST. Let’s see.

This is Carinhoso – Trilha Sonora Original (1973), for Som Livre. Carinhoso has an above the average duration for a TV Globo OST, 46 minutes of music and two different situations. Side B features tunes with lyrics, performed by the legendary Piry Reis, Osmar Milito, Trama, Fernando Leporace, Marcos Valle and an instrumental cut that opens the album 01 – Amar, Sofrer e Sonhar, performed by the obscure Nuvens, which is a group that I never heard before. Side B is all instrumental, featuring a single artist, Marcio Montarroyos, backed by orchestra and chorus. Loronix Preview Center features 04 – Manha de Sol (Piry Reis), performed by Piry Reis. Tracks include:

Festival da Bossa Nova (1963)

I have been monitor price and availability of this album since the very first beginning of Loronix. Perhaps this amazing cover artwork has called my attention to this record. I never had the chance to find it by a price I could afford at on-line auction sites and never had the chance to take it on my hands to understand what kind of Bossa Nova Festival was that. Today I got it on my favorite old vinyl store in Copacabana for a unbelievable price. Let’s see.

This is Festival da Bossa Nova (1963), for Odeon, unfortunately, not the live recording of a Bossa Nova Festival, but a compilation of Bossa Nova tunes performed by selected artists from Odeon cast, as follows: Walter Wanderley, Joao Gilberto, Isaura Garcia, Pery Ribeiro and Luiz Bonfa. The album was new as it would be in 1963 and played so nicely that I did not need to use any noise reduction application. This is the perfect record for those who are new to Bossa Nova and for those who are looking for a session performed by great artists based on a nice repertoire. Tracks include:

The Performers

Isaura Garcia
Joao Gilberto
Luiz Bonfa
Pery Ribeiro
Walter Wanderley

Track List

01 – Samba de Uma Nota Só – João Gilberto
02 – Só Em Teus Braços – Isaura Garcia
03 – Menina Flor – Luis Bonfá
04 – O Barquinho – Pery Ribeiro
05 – Insensatez – João Gilberto
06 – Você e Eu – Walter Wanderley
07 – Desafinado – João Gilberto
08 – Fio de Canção – Luis Bonfá
09 – Corcovado – Isaura Garcia
10 – Chega de Saudade – João Gilberto
11 – Meditação – Walter Wanderley
12 – Melancolia – Luis Bonfá

Chegou a Hora (1960)

Hello, good evening! Chegou a Hora! It’s Carnaval time and with this post Loronix officially starts Carnaval celebration. From today, until the end of Carnaval, we will have at least one Carnaval post per day. I will try to approach this big party from a historical perspective, flying over Carnaval across decades. It will not be an easy project, I’m not a parrot with Samba no Pe, but I’m sure we will have a lot of fun together. Let’s start with this one that gave me a lot of work to restore, featuring several artists that I never heard before.

This is Chegou a Hora (1960), for the tiny and legendary label Sideral. I think we could not start better with this one. The cover is a must and the repertoire is all about old Marchinhas, performed by several artists, most of them never mentioned before at Loronix, such as Rogeria, Bob Lins, Anilza Leoni, Zilda do Ze and others. For those who understand Portuguese, the lyrics of 01 – Chegou a Hora are really great with words such like “orgia” used with a very different meaning as of today. It is the selected track of Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:

Brasiliana (1967)

Hello, good evening! I’m amazed with the number of new visitors coming to Loronix today. I could not identify the source of this traffic, but our statistic shows a 30% increase in the last three hours. Perhaps Loronix got listed on a popular website or magazine, anyway, everybody knows this parrot hungry on statistics, numbers, trends and graphics. I decided to start today with an album to address the newcomers, a compilation featuring several artists, just to give you a panorama of the music from Brazil available to our community. Let’s see.

This is Brasiliana (1967), for Philips, a never commercially released album distributed by Philips to the participants of III Congresso Interamericano de Administracao de Pessoal, being also Philips celebration of 75 years of activities in Brazil, with several pictures of Philips 1966 facilities available in the back cover. The repertoire features Bossa Nova tunes, performed by artists from Philips cast, such like Tamba Trio, Lyra de Xopoto, Neyde Fraga, Walter Wanderley, Portinho, Orquestra Arco Iris, among others. Tracks include:

NovaBossaNova (1972)


I think most of you had already the chance to know Folklore and Bossa Nova do Brazil (1966), with a studio recording of an anthological tour of Bossa Nova artists in Germany, featuring Chico Batera, Dom Salvador, Edu Lobo, J.T. Meirelles, Jorge Arena, Rosinha de Valenca, Rubens Bassini and Sylvia Telles. What I did not know, in spite of seen more than a hundred times this fantastic cover at Caetano Rodrigues Bossa Nova book, was the existance of a second tour with another studio record called Nova Bossa Nova, presented here with a great surprise of mine and probably yours, especially by the unusual mix of performers. Let’s see.

This is Nova Bossa Nova (1972), for MPS (Germany), featuring our last challenge answer with Maria Bethania, Paulinho da Viola, Sebastiao Tapajos, Jorge Arena and Pedro “Sorongo” Santos. I’m presenting here the original Germany MPS Records release and I heard about an equivalent Brazilian release by Copacabana, not confirmed information. Nova Bossa Nova should make the day of several segments with lots of percussion by Jorge Arena and Sorongo, instrumental cuts with Sebastiao Tapajos violao with bass, drums and piano of Terra Trio, the singing of Maria Bethania and the always-elegant Samba delivered by Paulinho da Viola. Tracks include:

The Performers

Jorge Arena
Maria Bethania
Paulinho da Viola
Pedro Santos
Sebastião Tapajós
Terra Trio

Track List

01 – Gurungungô (Pedro Santos) with Pedro Santos / Sebastião Tapajós / Jorge Arena

Show Escola Naval (1959)

Hello, good evening! This is exactly what you are thinking … the history of Bossa Nova right in front of you. Everybody was waiting for this anthological concert and this post landmarks a series of events scheduled at Loronix to celebrate 50 years of Bossa Nova, since the release of Elizeth Cardoso´s – Cancao do Amor Demais in 1958, which is considered the beginning of the of Bossa Nova movement. Thanks to everybody involved on the effort of bringing this historical document to Loronix and don’t miss Caetano Rodrigues special celebration gift when we reach 2 million hits tomorrow. Let’s see.

This is Show da Escola Naval (1959), featuring the live recording of the anthological Bossa Nova concert produced by Ronaldo Boscoli at the Escola Naval, Rio de Janeiro, November 13, 1959, featuring Alaide Costa, Carlos Lyra, Chico Feitosa, Irmãos Castro Neves (Oscar, Mário & Ico), Lúcio Alves, Luiz Eça, Roberto Menescal and Sylvinha Telles. Escola Naval is a military facility in Rio de Janeiro and you should agree this is not a usual place to hold a Bossa Nova concert. The audience was perhaps a blend of military and Bossa Nova fans, and according with Ruy Castro’s Chega de Saudade book, the theater had a capacity of 600 seats and almost 1,000 people attended.

This live recording has approximately 65 minutes running time and tons of details that are sure to amaze us, like the way some classical songs were performed in the beginning, several interesting conversations between the performers, with some really nice moments with Lucio Alves and Sylvinha Telles and Ronaldo Boscoli effort to define Bossa Nova to this brand new 1958 audience. I urge Loronixers to use comment section for feedback and corrections to this really important document, our first Bossa Nova anniversary event. Tracks include:

Publicado em: Monday, November 26, 2007 by zecalouro

I cannot resist showing these promotional albums released by companies and when they comes with pictures of Rio de Janeiro it is quite impossible to ignore. This is the left wing of Copacabana, including the place where I live today at the end of the beach, a very nice place called Leme. Here we have a hard to see perspective of Copacabana, most of photos are taken from the opposite side, on top of the hill that closes the beach known as Pedra do Leme.

This is Copacabana in 1967 and the changes are many. The most important is the worse aggression to this landscape, we don’t see at this picture a skyscraper called Meridian, a big building that serve as a hotel. I don’t know how this building was allowed; it is so big that makes a stupid square shadow at the beach. Another obvious change is Av. Atlantica before the construction of the second avenue. Not all the changes were bad; at the hill in your left you see a small road going down to Copacabana. Today, that area is protected by authorities and a beautiful piece of Mata Atlantica rainforest is there, nice measure. Anyway, my apologies for this out topic Copacabana thing. This album has some differences and it is above the average in the style. Let’s see.

This is Ritmos Brasileiros (1967), for Philips to a marketing campaign of a financial institution called Credence, given to participants of the 22th International Monetary Fund Congress, held in 1967 in Rio de Janeiro. Instead of selecting a Maestro, orchestra and a repertoire of standards, the folks of Credence selected cuts of very nice artists such like Baden Powell, Sergio Mendes e Bossa Rio, Walter Wanderley, Corisco e Os Sambaloucos and others. Highly recommended. Tracks include:
The Performers

Escola de Samba da Cidade
Jonas Cordeiro e Sua Orquestra
Baden Powell
Caculinha e Seu Conjunto
Corisco e Os Sambaloucos
Portinho e Sua Orquestra
Lyra de Xopoto
Sergio Mendes e Bossa Rio
Walter Wanderley e Seu Conjunto

Track List

01 – Sua Excelencia a Batucada with ESCOLA DE SAMBA DA CIDADE
02 – Sessenta e Cinco with JONAS CORDEIRO E SUA ORQUESTRA
03 – Samba Triste with BADEN POWELL
05 – Balanco Zona Sul with CORISCO E OS SAMBALOUCOS

Publicado em: Wednesday, November 21, 2007 by zecalouro

This record is a piece of history and you should take it from this perspective. Sinter was the first Brazilian record company to release LPs, a major improvement compared with the old 78rpm with one track on each side, and this is just the second LP released by Sinter. This 10-inch is very old, so old that Sinter did not use vinyl, but the same plastic material from the 78rpms. When I took it for a wash, I had no hope that I could take a clean sound, but the record played very nice. Let’s see.

This is Parada de Sucessos (1951), for Sinter, the second LP produced in Brazil, featuring Os Cariocas, Ze Menezes, Geraldo Pereira, Carolina Cardoso de Menezes, among others. The tracks with Os Cariocas and Ze Menezes are really great, my favorites. Another nice thing about this album, the 78rpms, did not bring cover artworks; we should take this album as the second LP Brazilian cover artwork. I don’t like this cover and taking a look at the later Sinter releases, I think they learn fast on making nice ones. Tracks include:

The Performers

Os Cariocas
Jose Menezes
Orquestra Copacabana
Milita Meirelles
Carolina Cardoso de Menezes
Heleninha Costa
Geraldo Pereira

Track List

01 – De Papo Pro Á (Joubert de Carvalho) with José Menezes
02 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso) with Orquestra Copacabana
03 – Senhora Tentação (Agustin Lara) with Milita Meireles
04 – Baionando (Humberto Teixeira / Luis Gonzaga) with Carolina Cardoso de Menezes
05 – Tim Tim Por Tim Tim (Geraldo Jacques / Haroldo Barbosa) with Os Cariocas
06 – Não Interessa Não (José Menezes / Bittencourt) with José Menezes
07 – Afinal (Ismael Netto / N. Holanda) with Heleninha Costa

I could not avoid a big smile when I found this album available at a vinyl shop for a unbelievable price last week. It’s a ritual to phone call Caetano Rodrigues to report these amazing findings. Caetano almost faint when I tell him a find such like this one, one of the 100 essential albums on Luiz Americo website and a really solid record. Caetano Rodrigues sent it to us in the beginning of this year, but I think it is necessary to provide it again to Loronixers. I can tell you with no hesitation that we have great music here. Let’s see.

This is I Bienal do Samba (1968), for Philips, featuring awarded tunes from I Bienal do Samba, a music contest, such as the old festivals from the 60’s, featuring renowned Brazilian artists. I have no doubt this is the best Festival album recorded, this competition was amazing and the winner was Elis Regina, performing Lapinha with Os Originais do Samba and Baden Powell, the remaining positions are indicated on track list. This record is delicious to hear and I’m glad that we now have improved cover artwork and FLAC files alternative. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! I found this album on an old vinyl shop in Rio de Janeiro for less than a Dollar. I got really excited by the title – Mais Explosivo! (More Explosive!) – and the cover artwork with the girl inside the bikini, the TNT gallon and the beautiful and colorful background. I thought immediately I had high-octane music inside and decided to buy without checking performers and repertoire.

Anyway, the music inside is just the opposite, a collection of romantic songs performed by singers from the “old school” of Brazilian music, such as: Cauby Peixoto, Angela Maria, Nelson Goncalves, Nubya Lafayette and many others. I decided to share it with Loronixers, it has nice tracks, some Loronix friends love this kind of music and the cover is really worth, but don’t let the cover cheats you as I was. This is a warning.

This is Mais Explosivo! (1963), for RCA Victor, a compilation of romantic tunes, featuring romantic singers, some of them never release by a career album at Loronix, in fact, most of this artists never had a career album released here. I’m listing bellow performers listing and tracks. Tracks include:

However, before skipping my writing to scroll personnel listing, be sure that all credits for this post goes to Mauro R.V., the luck owner of this vinyl that kindly sent it to our community this morning.

I’m dizzy!

Hello, good evening! Let’s start making the day of instrumental music lovers and fans of the legendary Eldorado, which is a Brazilian record label dedicated to instrumental music. Eldorado was active from 1981 until the early 90’s, releasing several influential albums, some of them already available at Loronix, such as the last album recorded by K-Ximbinho, among many others. In addition from artist solo releases, Eldorado also released a very famous series called “Um Piano ao Cair da Tarde” with national and international music, always performed by Brazilian artists.

This cover and post title is self-explanatory and I think nobody will ready these lines. It is not necessary to clean your glasses or schedule a visit to your doctor, what you see is exactly what you get, and I will be very straightforward to do not waste your time.

This is A Noite do Amor, do Sorriso e da Flor – Faculdade de Arquitetura (1960), the anthological event produced by Ronaldo Boscoli, considered the first Bossa Nova Festival, featuring renowned Brazilian artists on a very early stage of their career supported by Roberto Menescal (guitar), Luiz Carlos Vinhas (piano), Luiz Paulo (bass), Helcio Milito (drums) and Bebeto (sax).

The track list has some failures and I hope our community helps to realize the exact figures in terms of songs names and performers. The sound quality is not perfect, but if you take in from an historical perspective, every second of this event worth the hearing. I would like to thanks all the friends involved on this post, a very important accomplishment to our community. Tracks include:

Publicado em: Sunday, October 07, 2007 by zecalouro

In 1997, Editora Globo released a series called “Historia do Samba”, very similar to “Historia da Musica Popular Brasileira” and “Serie Grandes Compositores”, released in the 70’s and already available at Loronix through a few editions. This series has 40 volumes, each one with a CD inside. I have volumes 1 to 25, kindly sent by the mysterious Samba contributor a month ago. I decided to search for the remaining 15 volumes to start showing the whole series to Loronixers. However, it seems impossible to find these 15 missing volumes in the quality given by our mysterious contributor.That’s why I decided that starting today, I will be releasing volumes from this series, making it by the reverse order, starting with number 25 until the last and first Volume. Meanwhile, I urge Loronixers to look for the missing volumes, so we can get the whole collection. Let’s see.This is Os Grandes Sambas da Historia – Volume 25 (1997), for Editora Globo, featuring selected Samba songs performed by several artists. The mysterious contributor made it with truly amazing cover scans, including inside booklets with lyrics of each volume. Let’s feedback this release using comment section, I like very much this series. Tracks include:

I’m a parrot that does not take compilations so much in consideration, being eventually hooked by some exceptions, such like this one issued by Continental as a tribute to Dorival Caymmi music. I think even Dorival Caymmi would like to take this one for a spin. A Musica de Dorival Caymmi features the best of Dorival Caymmi music performed by several artists, with one single exception, 08 – E Doce Morrer no Mar, performed by Dorival Caymmi. The repertoire selection and performers makes the difference here, we have some artists will make you feel the willing of getting more by their solo works. Let’s see.

Publicado em: Friday, October 05, 2007 by zecalouro

This album was supposed to be one of the greatest zecalouro’s mother findings ever. Let’s say it still her great finding, but there is a major and unacceptable failure with this album. The vinyl played perfect on side A, however, side B is exactly the same as side A. Columbia made both sides as A by mistake. Such like the missing Joao Gilberto track, I’m now asking for Loronixers help to find the missing side B of this fantastic album. Let’s see, half of it.

This is Matematica, zero… Amor, Dez… (1958), for Columbia, the OST of the Brazilian movie, featuring a constellation at t cast with acting performances of Lyrio Panicali (as Lyrio Panicali e Sua Orquestra), Tito Madi, Lana Bittencourt, Maysa Mattarazo (as Maysa), Sylvio Mazzucca (as Sylvio Mazucca e Sua Orquestra), Sergio Murilo, Carlos Machado, Luiz Claudio and others, almost all the artists we know acting. Unfortunately, only side A is available. Tracks include:

01 – Menina Moça (Luis Antônio) – Tito Madi
02 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso) – Lana Bittencourt
03 – Sax Cantabile (Armando Dominguez) – Silvio Mazzuca e Sua Orquestra
04 – Avental da Pastora (Luis Antônio / Amado Regis) – Coro Columbia
05 – Rosa Morena (Dorival Caymmi) – Trigêmeos Vocalistas
06 – Vassourinha (Mathias da Rocha / Joana Batista Ramos) – Lyrio Panicali e Sua Orquestra
07 – On The Button (Nº 5) (J. J. Donnelly / V. L. Mott) – Banda Marcial do Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais
08 – O Milagre da Volta (Fernando César / A. Cavalcanti) – Lana Bittencourt (*)
09 – Apito no Samba (Luis Bandeira) – Lyrio Panicali e Sua Orquestra (*)
10 – Rock de Morte (Nadir Peres / Lyrio Panicali) – Sergio Murilo (*)
11 – The Thunderer (Nº 9) (J. P. Souza / J. J. Donnelly / V. L. Mott) – Banda Marcial do Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais (*)
12 – Chora Pierrot (Luis Antônio) – Alcides Gerardi (*)
13 – Recado (Djalma Ferreira / Luis Antônio) – Luis Cláudio (*)
14 – Marcha dos Fuzileiros Navais (Na Vanguarda) (Luis Cândido da Silveira) – Banda doCorpo de Fuzileiros Navais (*)

(*) at the missing side.


Como comentado pelo Zeca, apenas o lado A do disco estava disponível. Porém, nosso amigo Leandro do blog The Best of Vinil nos enviou o disco completo, que foi processado pelo amigo Pedro e publicado pelo Milan no Parallel Realities.
