Conjunto 707 - Formula 707 (1966)

Conjunto 707 - Formula 707 (1966), a Brazilian BossaJazz instrumental group that has released only this LP for Chantecler. zecalouro was keeping this LP for months just waiting for additional information. Then, a friend of zecalouro said that this LP is so rare, good and unique that zecalouro was being selfish on keeping it without sharing with Loronix friends.

That's a nice argument, so zecalouro decide to present Loronixers Conjunto 707, which is Antônio Diniz (organ, accordion and arrangements), Ailton José Roncato (vibraphone), Waldomiro Lima (guitar), Divaldo B. Oliveira (piano, vibraphone), Victor Batista Lopes (piston), Pedro Chrispim (sax tenor), Walter Bento (bass, guitar), Altamyr Sarmento (acoustic guitar), Geraldo Lamanna (drums), Benedito Vilela (vocal) and José Carvalho e Benedito dos Santos (percussion). Tracks include:

01 - Você (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
02 - Amanhecendo (Roberto Menescal / Luis Fernando Freire)
03 - Io Che Non Vivo (Senza Te) (Donaggio / Pallavicini)
04 - Night And Day (Cole Porter)
05 - Vivo Sonhando (Tom Jobim)
06 - Midnight Lace (Lubin / Howard)
07 - Deus Brasileiro (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
08 - Starway To The Stars (Parish / Malneck / Signorelli)
09 - Midnight On The Cliffs (L. Pennario)
