Sorry friends, I could not resist to another trombone release. This is not exactly a trombone LP, but has the arrangements of Carioca and the mighty Nelsinho do Trombone, which is entertainment guaranteed. By the way, another nice released provided by our great friend Caetano Rodrigues. Very beautiful.
Meet Fats Elpidio - Piano Bossa Nova (1960), for RCA Victor, also, the first Fats Elpidio release at Loronix. Fats Elpidio is a Brazilian pianist and composer, also known as Pernambuco, started his career in 1930 at Orquestra de Jonas Silva and among many contributions for Brazilian music he is also credited to be the first to perform a Jazz concert in Rio de Janeiro at Fluminense Football Club.
Caetano is always surprising zecalouro with these jewels. I admit that I never heard a Fats Elpidio LP in my life and I can say that any serious Brazilian music collector should open a slot to Fats Elpidio. Fats discography is huge. He recorded some LPs in the late 50's as Fats Elpidio e Seu Conjunto that should be amazing picks.
