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:

Hello, good evening! From the winter of Rio de Janeiro, I would like to challenge Loronix community to identify two things here. The first is the name of this renowned musician, and the second is the place behind him. This is a extremely easy challenge and the first to provide both answers using comment section wins a Rapidshare one-month Premium account. A hi-res version is also available here. Get the chance!

Hope uEnjoy!

O Quarteto - O Quarteto

Mais um disco sai da categoria com defeito. O nosso amigo Martoni, da Rádio Forma e Elenco, publicou a discografia do “O Quarteto” e nela está este disco, no qual faltava uma faixa. Ele, agora completo, pode ser buscado a partir da postagem original. Na discografia do O Quarteto há, inclusive, um disco que não tinha sido publicado no Loronix. É o “O Quarteto (1969) que pode ser buscado aqui.

Moacir Santos - Opus3 Nº 1

Hello, good evening! Perhaps, good morning! I do not know. I am writing this text without any aid of the Internet, which according to the service provider will only be back in 36 hours due a broken fiber optic cable somewhere close to my place. When living in Copacabana, these things do not happen, or when it happens, were immediately corrected. It is quite different to write about such important musician and album with no Internet to help me. Anyway, everything you are reading is coming by the old fashioned way where knowledge was the one available where your hands or your eyes reach. Let’s see.

This is Moacir Santos – Opus 3 NO. 1 (1968), for Discovery (USA), kindly provided in FLAC by my new friend MCR (which is only a temporary nickname before I get his accordance of a name). Thanks MRC, Opus 3 NO. 1 is a missing piece at Moacir Santos discography available at Loronix and if I’m not wrong, it was recorded in 1968, and issued on in 1978, ten years before the studio sessions. This is Moacir Santos playing his own creations and singing, backed by renowned musicians, which includes an amazing participation of the legendary Chaim Lewak at the piano, as available on personnel listing, also provided by MCR. Tracks include:


Moacir Santos
(arrangements, baritone sax, voice)
Don Menza
(tenor sax)
Joe Pass
Clare Fischer
Ray Pizzi
(alt sax)
Chaim Lewak
Oscar Brashear
John Heard, Bob Saraiva
Bill Henderson
(electric piano)

Do you like vocal groups? I do. It is nice to hear and understand arrangements made for voices and this group excels on this kind of thing. O Quarteto recorded only three albums, two are available here at Loronix, while the third, released in 1969, is totally unknown to my ears. This is a reposting with several improvements, including the FLAC files and high quality front and back cover scans. I will keep my original writing with a few and cosmetic adaptations.

Thanks once again for the successful funding raising campaign we made in just three days. Stay tuned for new features.

Hello, good evening! I feel great today. I think it was a snack that made me feel bad yesterday, nothing better than 12 hours of continuous sleeping to get yourself fixed. Since I feel good, let’s have a great start today with a record that I like a lot, taking advantage of the last records picturing Bossa Nova 10, 29, 30 years after. Let’s see what we have here.

This is O Quarteto – Antologia da Bossa Nova 20 Anos Depois (1977), for Philips. You probably remember the first O Quarteto LP released at Loronix, but if you don’t, O Quarteto is a vocal group that released only two self-titled albums in the late 60’s, in spite of the active participation they had on several Festivais da Cancao. Antologia da Bossa Nova 20 Anos Depois was released with an interval of 9 years between the second LP. I do not have available info of the reasons they do not made albums, since they are a great vocal group that is always backed up by renowned musicians, as you can check bellow at personnel listing. Tracks include:




Paulinho Palarico Correa

Walter Gozzo

Carlos Alberto de Lima Vianna

Hermes Antonio Dos Reis

Vocal Arrangements
Carlos Alberto de Lima Vianna & Walter Gozzo

Cesar Camargo Mariano

Cesar Camargo Mariano
(bass, piano, fender, syntorchestra, percussion)

Help Needed: Loronix Dedicated Server – Year 2!

Publicado em: Saturday, July 11, 2009 by zecalouro

Loronix dedicated server contract is about to expire and once again I would like to engage the community to another year. This is a very important and critical milestone to Loronix. A little bit of history in case you have missed this story.

About a year ago, Loronix was surprised by an attack, leaving entire archive off-line. It was a very difficult time, solved through the mobilization of our community to purchase a dedicated server that enabled Loronix to be most stable of all music blogs.

This aid came through a raising funds campaign, guaranteeing this server for a period of one year. This server transformed Loronix significantly and today I the website cannot survive alone.

A year has gone and now it is necessary to renew our contract. And as I said, your help will be essential. Our objective is a little bit easier; we need to achieve a US$ 686.38 goal for a whole new year. My PayPal US$ 21,62 current balance is already included.

Our deadline is on July 27 and contributions will be collected using this widget below, which will be always available in our side bar until we reach our goal.

Thanks in advance for another whole new year.

Kind regards,
