Hello, good evening! I’m happy I don’t need to buy a Mac. I’m old for such change. I would like to inform that my computer nightmare has gone to a term today. Thanks a lot to everybody who wrote me with suggestions, tips and tricks. It seems that everybody is a computer specialist today. Thanks a lot Matt from the essential Beta Particle for making available resources to a virtual conference call, not needed because Jason guided this computer illiterate parrot to a utility that fixed the problem as magic.

Anyway, now I can focus on something I’m doing that has a strong influence to this post. I’m trying to write an article to approach on a structured manner a fascinating aspect of Brazilian instrumental music in the 60’s, which is the use of nicknames by renowned artists on records, such like Ed Lincoln recording as Don Pablo de Havana, the last released provided by Jose Ignacio Neto. It is incredible the number of musicians who made such thing. I think the most popular and relevant case is Bob Fleming, a fictional musician created by Nilo Sergio’s Musidisc label that had two artists playing the Bob Fleming role, the legendary Moacyr Silva and Zito Righi. Let’s see.

This is Bob Fleming – Bob Fleming Interpreta Boleros Volume 3 (1965), for Masterpiece Masters, a Musidisc label. I never found official information on which musician is behind each Bob Fleming release, but this one seems to be a Moacyr Silva session, delivering renditions of Bolero standards with his sax tenor. This cover is scaring at a first sight, but soon you will get used with the naked ladies around the sax. Tracks include:

01 – Charade (H. Mancini) Just For Tonight (J. Mercer / H. Carmichael)
02 – Sin Motivo (Gabriel Ruiz) Ay de Mi (O. Farrés)
03 – Amor (Gabriel Ruiz / R. L. Mendes) Abrazame Asi (M. Clavel)
04 – Accarezzame (Calvi / Nisa) Arrivederci (U. Bindi / G. Calabrese)
05 – Star Dust (H. Carmichael / M. Parish) Fly Me To The Moon (B. Howard)
06 – Sta Sera Pago Io (Modugno) Amapola (J. M. Lacalle)
07 – Desesperadamente (G. Luis / R. L. Mendes) Angustia (Orlando Brito)
08 – Rose (Michael / H. Salvador) Trop Beau (L. Amade / Gilbert Bécaud)
09 – Acercate Más (O. Farrés) Quizas Quizas Quizas (O. Farrés)
10 – Cuando Calienta El Sol (Carlos Rigual / Mário Rigual) Besame Mucho (Consuelo Velasquez)
11 – Uno Pertutti (T. Remis / A. Testa / Mogol) Io Che Amo Solo Te (Sergio Endrigo)
12 – Nessuno Al Mondo (R. Gioia) Al Di Lá (Mogol / Donida)


Na realidade, este parece ser mais um disco interpretado por Zito Righi, e não Moacyr Silva (está incluído na discografia do Zito Righi, abaixo).


Quanto ao artigo que estava sendo escrito pelo Zeca, ele de fato escreveu, com o título “O Jogo dos Pseudônimos”. Pode ser acessado no Músicos do Brasil.

Finalmente, o disco pode ser buscado no Martoni.

Hello, good evening! Thanks for the nice response given to yesterday’s tcisalpino contribution to our community. By the way, tcisalpino is so kind that he is right now managing another release for today, equivalent to yesterday’s Rio 65 Trio. Really great, I cannot wait longer until his upload finishes. Meanwhile we cannot go wrong with another favorite of Loronixers, Bob Fleming, also known as Moacyr Silva featuring this fantastic and weird cover of a sax inside a tunnel. Let’s see.

This is Bob Fleming – Jovens Enamorados (1965), for Musidisc. Actually, I’m making a 1971 reissue by Phonodisc, exactly the same album first issued by Musidisc. I don’t know Musidisc’s cover artwork, but this Phonodisc cover with a sax inside a tunnel is really amazing. Bob Fleming / Moacyr Silva delivers an international repertoire on side A and Brazilian songs on side B. Tracks include:

01 – I Left My Heart In San Francisco (Cross / Cory)
02 – Blú (Cesari / Savilla / Mongol)
03 – Le Bateau Blanc (Vitalin / Gilbert Bécaud)
04 – Call Me Irresponsible (J. V. Heusen / S. Cahn)
05 – Dos Perdidos (Nilo Sergio)
06 – I Could Have Danced All Night (A. J. Lerner / F. Loewe)
07 – O Sol Nascerá (Cartola / Élton Medeiros)
08 – Nem Uma Luz Brilhou (Gilvan Chaves)
09 – Diga Que Sim (Silvio César)
10 – Canção Para Um Homem no Espaço (Nilo Sergio)
11 – É Demais (Nonato Buzar)
12 – O Amor do Amor (Luis Bittencourt / Alberto Paz)


Esse disco pode ser buscado na Rádio Forma  e Elenco do Martoni.

Um detalhe interessante: o filho do Zito Righi, o Ney Righi, postou um comentário na Rádio Forma e Elenco, no disco Sax de Ouro. Entrei em contato, e ele me passou a discografia do Zito Righi, com vários dos discos do Bob Fleming. A discografia está na imagem abaixo e inclui o disco “Jovens Enamorados”. Ou seja, ao contrário do que afirma o Zeca, este não é um disco de Moacyr Silva, mas de Zito Righi como Bob Fleming.

Hello, Good Evening! The rain falls with no mercy in Rio de Janeiro and zecalouro does not use to fly on rainy days. It was a day to check the very old and forgotten music with some great findings to Loronixers. Starting with this one, just to take advantage of the great feedback given to the last Caetano Rodrigues contribution, the first Zito Righi solo album, Sax de Ouro. Now it is time to check what Zito Righi delivers with his third and last LP, in partnership with the pianist Ribamar. Let’s see.

This is Ribamar e Zito Righi – Ribamar & Zito Righi (1963), for Musidisc, featuring Ribamar piano and Zito Righi sax tenor, accompanied by not credited musicians on bass, drums, guitar and percussion. Toni Vestane once again plays his role of special guest singing track 03 – Ai de Mim. This is a very relaxed session with Ribamar and Zito Righi performing a repertoire based on Brazilian, French, Spanish and American tunes. Tracks include:

01 – Que É Que Eu Faço (Ribamar (1) / Dolores Duran)
02 – Canção dos Olhos Tristes (Tito Madi)
03 – Ai de Mim (Capiba) – with Toni Vestane
04 – Aimer Comme Je T’aime (H. Giraud)
05 – Una Mujer (Paul Misraki)
06 – Quando Vuelva a Tu Lado (Maria Grever)
07 – Sunday Monday Or Always (J. Heusen / J. Burke)
08 – Sim Ou Não (Zito Righi)
09 – Só Em Teus Braços (Tom Jobim)
10 – Onde Estava Eu (Armando Cavalcanti / Victor Freire)

Zito Righi e Sua Orquestra – Sax de Ouro (1961)

Very wise of Caetano on sending this really hard to find album to our community, featuring a very interesting artist, the Brazilian sax player, arranger and composer Zito Righi. I spoke with Claudio Fragnan, which is the friend who knows everything about Musidisc label and he said Zito Righi recorded several albums using the name of Bob Fleming, particularly the ones released when Moacyr Silva was not under contract obligations with Musidisc.

Zito Righi recorded only three solo albums, this first one, a second with a repertoire of American standards and a last one with Ribamar. These three albums were recorded from 1961 to 1963 and I cannot understand why he did not make more albums. Additionally, nobody could say so far it Zito Righi is alive and what he did after the 60’s. Anyway, this is the first Zito Righi LP and it is really above the average, featuring some other artists from Musidisc cast. Let’s see.

This is Zito Righi e Sua Orquestra – O Sax de Ouro (1961), for Musidisc, featuring Zito Righi sax tenor and the very special Musidisc guests Silvio Cesar, Toni Vestante, Pedrinho Rodrigues and Francineth. This is the perfect transitional album to move from Samba to Loronix business as usual. Personnel is not listed. Tracks include:

01 – Se Eu Errei (Francisco Neto / Humberto de Carvalho / Edu Rocha) Ana Maria (Luis Soberano / Anicio Bichara)
02 – História (Nilo Sergio) with Francineth
03 – Amor Demias (Ed Lincoln / Silvio César)
04 – Partí (Ed Lincoln / Silvio César) with Silvio César
05 – Amor de Janela (Pernambuco / Antônio Maria) Brincar de Amar (Pernambuco)
06 – Não Diga Nada (Carlito / Noacy de Marcenes) Eu Não Sei Me Repetir (Jota Santos / Herondino Silva)
07 – Calcuttá (H. Gaze)
08 – Conformação (Moacir Vieira) with Pedrinho Rodrigues
09 – Sei Que É Covardia Mas (Ataulfo Alves / Claudionor Cruz) Olhos Verdes (Vicente Paiva)
10 – Toma Lá Dá Cá (Toni Vestane) with Toni Vestane
11 – Enlouqueci (Luis Soberano / Waldomiro Pereira / João Sales) Tem Pena de Mim (Hervé Cordovil)
12 – Pastorinhas (Noel Rosa / João de Barro) Mal-me-quer (Newton Teixeira / Cristóvão de Alencar)

Hello, Good Evening! It seems that Rio de Janeiro will finally have a relief after more than 60 days of extremely hot days. I was even used to it. Caetano said today that Sao Paulo is like winter and probably we will receive this cold polar wind tomorrow. We are now under a heavy wind. Actually every wind is terrific when you live on top of a building in front of a beach. zeca knew this change, he was really different today, asking to go inside his cage for sleep at 2pm.

Anyway, wind remembers me a sax and sax is all about a favorite artist of many Loronixers. Let’s start this night with Bob Fleming.

This is Bob Fleming – Bob Fleming Interpreta Boleros (1961), for Musidisc, the first out of a three album series with Bob Fleming renditions to the Bolero genre. Little is known about this album and personnel listing is unfortunately not available at the back cover and websites I could so far research. Our survey outcome should be really amazing, since we will have information about Loronix preferences. That’s why we need several responses to make our sample close to the overall Loronix feeling. Tracks include:

01 – Frio en Alma – Aqueles Ojos Verdes
02 – Una Mujer – Desesperadamente
03 – Por que Ya no me Quieres – Olhos Castanhos
04 – Magic is the Moonlight – Tres Palabras
05 – Adios – Se Mui Bien que Vendras
06 – Solamente una Vez – Frenesi
07 – Maria Helena – La Violetera
08 – Quiereme Mucho – Cubanacan
09 – Torna a Soriento – O Sole Mio
10 – Poinciana – Marta
11 – Stars in Your Eyes – Orchids in the Moonlight
12 – Quero Beijar-te as Maos / Nostalgias


Este disco pode ser buscado no Baú de Longplaying. Vejam que neste disco, Bob Fleming é Zito Righi, conforme o cartaz abaixo que nos foi enviado pelo filho de Zito, Ney Righi, com a discografia de seu pai.

Hello! Good Evening! Our friend Jeff told me yesterday that we say good night only when we leave not when we arrive. How could I make it wrong for months with nobody calling my attention? As we are talking about language, zeca, the parrot, made a great improve this week. zeca finally understood how to ask for things. Not a matter of using the right verb to make good phrases, but saying things with the same tune we make in Portuguese. This is really amazing; he is now asking for turning music on, food, sleep, spraying, etc. You should believe.

Anyway, I was missing Moacyr Silva and I’m confident that several friends are also waiting. We will go now with Moacyr Silva as Bob Fleming with this early release.

This is Bob Fleming – Este e Bob Fleming (1961), for Audiola, which is a Musidic company. Little I know about this album. The cover artwork is simple on both faces with no complimentary information, personnel is not listed. Tracks include:

01 – All The Things You Are
02 – Bat Masterson
03 – It’s Wonderful
04 – Laura
05 – Deep Purple
06 – All The Way
07 – Stella By Starlight
08 – Exodus
09 – Dancing In The Dark
10 – All My Tomorrows
11 – I’m In The Mood For Love
12 – Blue Moon


Este disco pode ser buscado no Parallel Realities. Ao contrário do que diz o Zeca, este não é um disco do Moacyr Silva e sim do Zito Righi, conforme o cartaz abaixo que nos foi enviado pelo filho de Zito, Ney Righi, com a discografia de seu pai.

Hello, good night! I have to admit that I’m happy with the end of Carnaval. Everything went fine, as far as I know and we had a successful party down here. Now, it is time to get back to a normal life, schedule an appointment with zecalouro vet, use behavior analysis to make him forget the tunes that he learned and start the year. The show must go on.

Let’s make a great start today showing to Loronixers an album that has a combination of saxophone and Hammond B3 organ. This is Bob Fleming – Bob Fleming (1961), for Musidisc, featuring Bob Fleming aka Moacyr Silva and probably, my assumption, Ed Lincoln or Celso Murilo on the Hammond B3 organ. I spoke today with Claudio Fagnan, our expert on recognizing participations of the artists he loves on albums. Claudio will take the last Ivan Casanova LP for a hearing and this Bob Fleming to bring clarification on these issues very soon. Tracks include:

01 – O Nosso Amor / Fechei a Porta
02 – E Luxo So / Teleco Teco Nr. 2
03 – Meditacao / Cheiro de Saudade
04 – A Noite do Meu Bem / Fim de Caso
05 – Ideias Erradas / E Dai
06 – Mundo Mal / Ho Ba La La
07 – Rio de Janeiro / Cidade Maravilhosa
08 – Dizem por Ai / O Amor e a Rosa
09 – Se Acaso Voce Chegasse / Agora e Cinza
10 – Chora sua Tristeza – Ri
11 – Carinho e Amor – Menina Moca
12 – O Nosso Olhar – Exemplo


Este disco pode ser buscado provisoriamente aqui. Ao contrário do que diz o Zeca, neste disco Bob Fleming não é Moacyr Silva e sim Zito Righi, conforme o cartaz abaixo que nos foi enviado pelo filho de Zito, Ney Righi, com a discografia de seu pai.

Publicado em: Monday, February 19, 2007 by zecalouro

In the beginning, my judgment for this record went on that category of risky ones, such as the Oswaldo Luiz e Seu Conjunto. Meanwhile, I could accumulate some info and I’m now confident to show it to Loronixers. In spite of not having the cover artwork of my dreams to this post, this is a really solid release, from the start to end. You should not miss it.

This is Zito Righi e Seu Conjunto – Alucinolandia (1969), for unknown label, featuring nice vocals from Sonia Santos and Zito Righi sax. If you find in a first hearing Zito Righi sax very similar with Bob Fleming way of play, you have a good hear, Zito Right is Bob Fleming on several albums released by Musidisc, a story that will be clarified tomorrow. This record is a treat and I invite you to check and place your comments. Tracks include:

01 – Poema Ritmico do Malandro
02 – Somos Todos Irmaos
03 – Once in a While
04 – Birimbau
05 – Primeira Conjugacao
06 – Bye Bye
07 – Love is here to Stay
08 – Isn’t a Dream
09 – Sou Feliz Aqui
10 – Adeus Amor
11 – Alvorada
12 – Hert

Bob Fleming – Mr. Sax Serie C

Publicado em: Wednesday, January 31, 2007 by zecalouro

Hello, good night! I will start the day saying Welcome! to several new friends that had their first contact with Loronix today. Mariana Barros, from a major Brazilian newspaper in Sao Paulo, Folha de Sao Paulo, wrote an article mentioning Loronix, Thanks Mariana!

I made a try today to scare zecalouro with this cover and he could not understand that the image of a kitten as a real kitten. Perhaps the capacity of associate pictures with real forms is only a human gift. Ok! I’m finished with rubbish, let’s talk about the music.

This is Bob Fleming – Mr. Sax Serie C (no date), for Musidisc. If you are thinking we have a new artist to explore or a special post of an international musician, don’t stop reading. Bob Fleming is Moacyr Silva, the legendary Brazilian sax player with many LPs already presented to Loronixers. I could not check Moacyr Silvas reasons to adopt this alternative name for some recordings on Musidisc. Caetano is also also very interested to understand this character, Bob Fleming, since Bob Fleming still releasing for Musidisc after Moacyr Silva departure to Copacabana (record label).

The questions are many, for instance: Moacyr Silva performed which Bob Fleming records? Who is the second Bob Fleming besides Moacyr Silva? If you have something to add to this pile of uncertain, feel free to come and say. By the way, this record is truly amazing. Tracks include:

01 – Manhattan (Rodgers / Hart)
02 – I Get a Kick Out Of You (Cole Porter)
03 – Dancing In The Dark (Schwartz / Dietz)
04 – Who (O. Harbach / O. Hammerstein II)
05 – I Won’t Cry Anymore (A. Frisch / Freiwise)
06 – Affair To Remember (Harold Adamson / Harry Warren)
07 – Blue Moon (Rodgers / Hart)
08 – I’m In The Mood For Love (MC Hugh / Heusen)
09 – All My Tomorrows (Sammy Cahn / Heusen)
10 – Over The Rainbow (Harold Harlen / E. Y. Harbourg)
11 – Exodus (Gold)
12 – Stellaby (Washington / Victor Young)
