musiciansquinteto

This album is very important to me and also to Loronix and our great community. It was one of the first records included on our database and played a very important role of bringing new friends. Moreover, it is a great album, which I include between the two best ones recorded by this great musician, Victor Assis Brasil. This update includes a new digital transfer, carefully scanned cover artwork, including internal materials and the availability of the lossless FLAC audio. Let’s see.

This is Victor Assis Brasil – Victor Assis Brasil Quinteto (1979), for Odeon, featuring lots of information inside, including Victor Assis Brasil biography information written by Jose Domingos Rafaelli, both in Portuguese and English. I wish all records would be like this one, with all information available and a beautiful design. I decided to make all cover scan with no Rapidshare, just to make easy to everybody. This is a self-explanatory album that never had a CD reissue. You should not miss. Tracks include:

Hello, good evening! This is the first out of a series of posts provided by Luiz Harding with cassette tapes transfers of the Primeiro Festival de Jazz de Sao Paulo, held at Palacio de Convencoes do Anhembi, in 1978. Luiz Harding sent it in the beginning of the year and he will probably be really surprised with this post. This Festival is anthological featuring several Brazilian and international performers, such as: John McLaughlin, Tony Smith, Larry Coryell & Philip Catherine, Dizzy Gillespie, Taj Mahal, Patrick Moraz, Hermeto Paschoal, Egberto Gismonti, Chick Corea, Joel Farrel, Stan Getz, Al Jarreau, Peter Tosh, Milton Nascimento, Nivaldo Ornellas, Benny Carter, Jazz at the Philharmonic, Raul de Souza, Djalma Correa, George Duke, Etta James, Ray Brown, Zimbo Trio, Luiz Eça, Helio Delmiro, Márcio Montarroyos, Wagner Tiso, Victor Assis Brasil, which is the one selected to start this amazing series. Let’s see.

This is Victor Assis Brasil – Primeiro Festival de Jazz de Sao Paulo (1978), made available by Luiz Harding’s cassette tape transfer. Victor Assis Brasil is backed by Paulo Russo (bass), Fernando Martins (piano) and Ted Moore (drums). Luiz Harding said this Festival was broadcasted by Radio Bandeirantes in Sao Paulo and never had a commercial issue. The music is amazing, but the quality is not the same we are used to get with Loronix vinyl transfers. Take it from an historical perspective and thanks a million Luiz Harding for this sharing and also for waiting so long to see it released at Loronix. Tracks include:

Personnel

Paulo Russo

Here we go on an album that I want to see at Loronix since the beginning. Thanks to tcisalpino for making it to our community using FLAC files to provide the best possible quality. This album was posthumously released in the year of 1997 by the label El Dorado and was recorded live at MAM, Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro. My searches were not successful to understand why we have to wait more than 20 years to have this record released. Anyway, it is not everyday an album is released featuring Luiz Eca and Victor Assis Brasil performing together. Let’s see.

This is Luiz Eca & Victor Assis Brasil – Ao Vivo no Museu de Arte Moderna (1997), for El Dorado, featuring Luiz Eca at the piano and Victor Assis Brasil at sax, performing a repertoire based on Brazilian and international standards. Definitively, this is not an album for beginners; you will have to take it for a spin several times before acquiring some intimacy. Sometimes Luiz Eca goes to a direction and Victor Assis Brasil seems to take the opposite, vice-versa. If any friend had the chance to watch this performance and has additional info about this set, feel free to use comment section to tell us something about. Thanks once again tcisalpino for providing this great album to our community. Tracks include:

Personnel

Luiz Eca
(piano)
Victor Assis Brasil
(sax alto)

Track List

01 – The dolphin (Luiz Eça)
02 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)
03 – Fotografia (Tom Jobim)
04 – You must believe in spring (Michel Legrand)
05 – Samba de uma nota só (Newton Mendonça / Tom Jobim)
06 – Hi-lili hilô (Bronislaw Kaper / Helen Deutch)
07 – Insensatez (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – O cantador (Nelson Motta / Dori Caymmi)
09 – The man I love (George Gershwin)

Publicado em: Monday, September 10, 2007 by zecalouro

I arrive home this week and found a package with this fantastic record inside, sent by a great friend of mine, cvllos, a great Loronixer that knows by heart the albums available at Loronix. He is also a great finder, we have been together on some vinyl searches in Rio and I have a lot to learn with cvllos. By the way, he celebrated his birthday in the past week and this is a late, but very important, birthday gift to cvllos, the Genius of Victor Assis Brasil.

This is Victor Assis Brasil – Esperanto (1970), for Tapecar, produced and directed by Roberto Quartin, which is the guy who shows something to Victor on this back cover that really worth to be presented with the front cover. Esperanto is an outcome of the same recording session of Victor Assis Brasil – Jobim, which is the last Victor Assis Brasil at Loronix. Just like Jobim, Esperanto features a constellation of Brazilian musicians. I strongly recommend Esperanto, Victor shines with his sax, leaving space for others musician’s performances with all tracks written by Victor Assis Brasil. This is also the first time he plays soprano sax on recordings. Tracks include:

Personnel

Victor Assis Brasil
(sax alto, sax soprano)
Dom Salvador
(piano, organ)
Helio Delmiro
(guitar)
Edison Lobo
(bass)
Edison Machado
(drums)

Track List

01 – Ginger Bread Boy (Victor Assis Brasil)
02 – Marilia (Victor Assis Brasil)
03 – Quarenta Graus à Sombra (Victor Assis Brasil)
04 – Ao Amigo Quartin (Victor Assis Brasil)

Hello, Good Evening! I’m coming back from the place of a Loronix friend who made a special contribution to Loronixers, a small contribution in number of albums (I could bring more, I’m so shy…), but an awesome contribution in terms of quality, seven anthological Samba LPs, all solid, from start to the end and some of them very difficult to find out. Loronix engineers were contacted to extra hours tonight to make available at least one album for our community pleasure.

Meanwhile, we will be in very good company with Victor Assis Brasil and his tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim repertoire.

This is Victor Assis Brasil – Jobim (1970), for Forma, with four breathtaking renditions of Wave, So Tinha que Ser com Voce, Bonita and Dindi, considered by many the best album recorded by the Brazilian jazz legend Victor Assis Brasil. Personnel is not identified on back cover and we should thank the effort of Discos do Brasil, owned and maintained by Maria Luiza Kfouri for the identification, a constellation of top-notch musicians. Tracks include:

Personnel

Victor Assis Brasil
(sax alto)
Dom Salvador
(piano)
Edison Machado
(drums)
Helio Delmiro
(guitar)
Edson Lobo
(bass)

Track List

01 – Wave (Tom Jobim)
02 – Só Tinha de Ser Com Você (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
03 – Bonita (Tom Jobim)

I said before we had no Victor Assis Brasil videos at Loronix. I’m glad to share the first one, sent by Pedro Mendes Djembe, a great video collector that has an awesome page at YouTube with more than 150 videos of Brazilian Music and Jazz. Pedro’s page is here, you will spend hours there. I recommend.

The video is just bellow, but this post is all about Victor Assis Brasil second LP and the galaxy of Brazilian musicians at the set.

This is Victor Assis Brasil – Trajeto (1968), for Equipe. This is the album I was saving for this occasion. I read today that Victor Assis Brasil won the 1969 Montreux Festival edition, accompanied by Dom Salvador, Helio Delmiro, Edson Lobo and Edison Machado, being also the best sax player of this edition. I’m wondering if there are tapes or videos available with Victor performance at Montreux. It will be a real treat to hear or watch this material. Tracks include:

Victor Assis Brasil Quarteto – Pedrinho (1980)

Link na Internet Wayback Machine: Victor Assis Brasil Quarteto – Pedrinho (1980)
Publicado em: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 2007

 

One of the things that makes me feel more disturbed when I take a Victor Assis Brasil album for a hearing is the exercise I make to realize what direction his music would take in these 26 years, since he passed away prematurely at the age of 37. The last Victor Assis Brasil album was sent by Caetano, Desenhos, his debut LP and now we are showing Pedrinho, his last album from 1980.

This is Victor Assis Brasil Quarteto – Pedrinho (1980), for EMI Odeon. It is a shame this album has gone out of print. Pedrinho is considered by jazz fans as the best album released by Victor Assis Brasil. I’m making a video this time with several images of Victor taken of a Brazilian TV documentary; if someone has additional Victor Assis Brasil videos, feel free to write comments and share with our community. Tracks include:

PersonnelVictor Assis Brasil
(sax alto)
Jota Moraes

Ted Moore
(drums)

Track List01 – It’s All Right With Me (Cole Porter)
02 – Nada Será Como Antes (Milton Nascimento / Ronaldo Bastos)
03 – Pedrinho (Victor Assis Brasil)
04 – S’wonderful (George Gershwin / Ira Gershwin)
05 – Penedo (Victor Assis Brasil)
06 – O Cantador (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta)
07 – Night And Day (Cole Porter)

This is Victor Assis Brasil Quarteto – Pedrinho (1980), at Loronix.

Hope uEnjoy!
