MPB-4 - De Palavra em Palavra... (1971)

I don't have info available on Loronixers feedback to MPB-4; perhaps we did not release many albums or made wrong choices. I hope this one corrects any gaps Loronix has with this really important Brazilian vocal group. Thanks to Marcia Webber for showing zecalouro the way to this album, for sure one of the best ones released by MPB-4. I spoke with Caetano about this album and he gave an enthusiastic feedback, which is something that Caetano only gives to the ones that really deserves.

This is MPB-4 - De Palavra... em Palavra... (1971), for Elenco. I’m only disappointed for not having additional information on this session that had Roberto Menescal playing the role of Production Director. The back cover also credits Magro as arranger, but it is not specific if he is also in charge of instrumental arrangements. The repertoire is beautiful, with songs that will keep inside your head after a first hearing. Tracks include:


(voice, arrangements)

This is Sadao Watanabe - Elis (1989), for BMG. Sadao Watanabe is a Japanese sax player with strong connections with the music from Brazil, releasing several albums dedicated to our country, most of them recorded here. This one is a perfect example, a tribute to Elis Regina featuring Cesar Camargo Mariano, Heitor TP, Paulinho Braga, Nico Assumpcao, Papeti and the most frequent Sadao Watanabe Brazilian collaborator, Toquinho as special guest on two tracks. I had a little time to hear this album and review it to Loronixers, but it is highly recommended by many reviewers and I cannot wait to take a second hearing. Tracks include:

Claudia - Deixa eu Dizer (1973)

Hello, Good Evening! This is the first out of three non-working days in Brazil. Everybody left the city to quiet places, coming back on Sunday night or Monday. I like these big weekends, people leave to quiet places and Rio de Janeiro stays, how can I say, quiet. I took a time today to climb a military facility close to my place, which is Pedra do Leme. The place has a Fort with several cannons to protect the city. Obviously, the Fort is no longer working, but the military use to put some cannons in service once in a while, such as today. Wow, my ears still have problem by the cannon noise, but the day was really nice. You can follow this link to know more about the spot.

Let's take advantage of these low traffic days to release some very old wants and needs of Loronixers, starting with this one that really worth your attention.

This is Claudia - Deixa eu Dizer (1973), for Odeon. Little I know about this album, except it is the most successful LP recorded by this Brazilian singer, featuring songs by her own and others from Caetano Veloso, Ivan Lins, Gonzaguinha, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Dorival Caymmi and others. Tracks include:

01 - Noite de Verão (Cláudia / Raul Telles)
02 - Esse Cara (Caetano Veloso)
03 - A Fonte Secou (Monsueto / Tufic Lauar / Marcléo)
04 - O Circo (Pregão Circense) (Zé Dantas)

06 - Agora Quem Sorri Sou Eu (Cláudia / Cristiê)
07 - Só Que Deram Zero Pro Bedeu (Luis Vagner)
08 - Deixa Eu Dizer (Ivan Lins / Ronaldo Monteiro de Souza)

10 - Apartamento na Cidade (Cláudia / Raul Telles)
11 - Bela (Raul Telles / Raul Esteves)
12 - Pois É Seu Zé (Gonzaguinha)

Zimbo Trio - Zimbo Trio (1978)

I hope the problems that happened yesterday with the last post of the day are over, since this one really deserves a flawless exhibition. If you were looking for this album, you should say thanks to Loronixer Marcos, he was the one that told me this LP was a Zimbo Trio career album.

Shame on zecalouro. He always thought this was a compilation with music taken from other records; perhaps this simple cover artwork was not inspiring enough to get my attention. Anyway, thanks Marcos, you made me understand that I had a Zimbo Trio career album that I never heard and also never released at Loronix.

This is Zimbo Trio - Zimbo Trio (1978), for Clam / Continental, featuring Zimbo Trio original formation and several special guest of not, such as Heraldo do Monte and the son of the clarinetist Domingos Pecci, Eduardo Pecci, also known as Lambari from Quarteto Lambari. Pretty self-explanatory. I will let you with personnel listing and tracks. Um bom final de semana prolongado aos amigos do Brasil. Tracks include:

Ivan Casanova e Seus Conjuntos - Melodias Celebres do Cinema

Remember an album released in February 2007 featuring an organist known as Ivan Casanova that later on we realize it was Walter Wanderley? If you do not remember, just follow this link and you are set, here. I thought that was the only album recorded by this Ivan Casanova nickname at Imperial label. However, I found another one and I thought it was another great thing to have another never heard Walter Wanderley album.

Unfortunately, no organ and no Walter Wanderley this time. In the other hand, the album is really good, on that Para Dancar style, but really above the average and deserves to be available to our community. Let's see.

This is Ivan Casanova e Seus Conjuntos - Melodias dos Filmes Celebres (no date), for Imperial. A very well played album with songs from movie soundtracks, different from the earlier Ivan Casanova. My highlights go to sax, piston and trombone, very well played, probably by well-known musicians. Tracks include:

01 - Singing in the Rain
02 - Blue Skies
03 - An Affair to Remember
04 - Ebb Tide
05 - Unchained Melody
06 - Around the World
07 - Be my Love
08 - Stella by Starlight
09 - Over the Rainbow
10 - Love is a Tender Trap
11 - High Society
12 - Whatever Will Be, Will Be

Dolores Duran - 78rpm | Copacabana 5488 (1955)

Here we go on something never made before, the first album in the 78rpm format at Loronix. How these records spin fast! Since we are starting in the new format, a great artist was selected, Dolores Duran, backed by orchestra and performing two songs.

This is Dolores Duran - 78rpm | 5488 (1955), for Copacabana. Let's feedback this release. I'm making available at Rapidshare as "Type 1", which is a direct link to the album with no waiting time, just to make easy your evaluation. I think it is a good idea to release one or two per week. Tracks include:

01 - Nao se Avexe, Nao (Francisco Anysio / Haydee Paula) - Baiao
02 - Nossos Destinos (Luiz Vieira) - Toada

A Cor do Som - Ao Vivo, Montreux International Jazz Festival (1979)

Hello, Good Evening! I want to start the day with something new and really unique, which is the legendary and pioneer instrumental / vocal band A Cor do Som. How many friends who live outside Brazil had the chance to hear or even know the existence of this group? Probably less than a half by this parrot estimates, actually, these guys made wonderful things and I think they deserve much more recognition.

Some friends in Brazil would say they do not belong to Loronix, but I think they are even a missing piece. A Cor do Som blends several different styles with the strength of never loosing focus on Brazilian music. They mix jazz, rock, progressive, frevo, samba, baiao, MPB and are great performers as instrumental or vocal group. I'm showing A Cor do Som album that has only instrumental tracks and I'm sure that later we will be amazed when hearing them singing as a vocal group.

This is A Cor do Som - Ao Vivo, no Montreux Internacional Jazz Festival (1979), for Warner, featuring the original formation with Mu (keyboards), Dadi (bass), Armandinho (guitarra baiana), Aroldo (guitarra baiana), Gustavo (drums) and Ary (percussion). Armandinho is the same renowned guitarist, inventor of the guitarra baiana, an electrified version of cavaquinho. Someone said this week that every Montreux Festival cut is worth checking. This one really rocks. Tracks include:


(guitarra baiana)
(guitarra baiana)

Track List

01 - Danca Saci (Mu)
02 - Chegando da Terra (Armandinho)
03 - Arpoador (Armandinho / Dadi / Gustavo / Mu)
04 - Cochabamba (Moraes Moreira / Aroldo)
05 - Brejeiro (Ernesto Nazareth)
06 - Espirito Infantil (Mu)
07 - Festa na Rua (Mu / Dadi / Armandinho / Aroldo)
08 - Eleanor Rigby (Lennon / McCartney)

Turibio Santos - Villa Lobos (1971)

Hello, Good Evening! I was browsing past statistics today and I noticed those few classical music albums releases in the past month had a great interest of our community. I'm talking about Encontro, the collaboration between Clara Sverner, Turibio Santos, Paulo Moura and Olivia Byington, Turibio Santos first LP for Caravelle and Maria Lucia Godoy, O Canto da Amazonia with Neco's guitar. The numbers are really surprising with Maria Lucia Godoy and Turibio Santos being the leaders. Let's make Loronix goes classical again.

This is Turibio Santos - Villa Lobos (1971), for MIS and issued by RCA Victor, the second Turibio Santos tribute to the Brazilian Maestro Heitor Villa Lobos, recorded in Paris. This is a truly beautiful record, Side A has Turibio Santos accompanied by Orquestra de Camara Jean-Francois Paillard, featuring flute, oboe, sax, celesta and harp, performing Sexteto Mistico, composed by Villa Lobos in 1917. Side B is Turibio Santos guitar performing alone five Villa Lobos preludios. It is hard to say which is the nicest side, but I had a slight preference for Side B, it is very nice to hear Turibio Santos performing alone. I urge Loronixers to feedback this release using comments section. Tracks include:


Turibio Santos

Les 4 Cadillacs - Doucement, Mon Amour (1962)

Since the first month of Loronix, several friends have been asking for an album by this Brazilian group Les 4 Cadillacs, a creation of Nilo Sergio, Musidisc owner. The reason is the presence of Ed Lincoln at the piano on every album by this quartet. Since then, I found the first and decided to wait for the second, when I found the second I thought it was better waiting for the third. This is the third one, slight better than the others, just for Ed Lincoln fans and completionists.

This is Les 4 Cadillacs - Doucement, Mon Amour... (1962), for Masterpiece Master, Musidisc subsidiary, featuring Ed Lincoln at the piano and the other remain not credited Cadillacs at bass, drums and guitar. The quartet performs an easy listening repertoire based on American and French music. As I said before, this is fans and completionists stuff. Tracks include:

01 - As Time Goes By (H. Hupfeld)
02 - La Mer (Charles Trenet)
03 - You Belong To Meu (C. Price / R. Stewart / P. Weking)
04 - Marie Marie (Gilbert Bécaud / Delanoe)

12 - Moon River (J. Mercer / Henry Mancini)

Paulinho da Viola - Paulinho da Viola (1971)

Yesterday, I was very tired and just felt asleep without making the last post. I woke up this morning with more than a few messages of friends worried about me. I dedicate this post to theses friends. They are from a special group of Loronixers that keep contact with me using email or instant messaging until the final post, giving feedback and support.

This is Paulinho da Viola - Paulinho da Viola (1971), for Odeon. Guess who is the arranger of another above the average Paulinho da Viola album? Just look at the previous post to get the answer, Lindolfo Gaya, in charge of all tracks. Paulinho da Viola is one of the most sophisticated Samba interpreter and composer I have ever seen, thanks to a special friend among the group of "late at night friends", he was responsible for introducing to zecalouro Paulinho da Viola, which I have special pleasure introducing to all Loronix community. Tracks include:


Paulinho da Viola
(voice, violao, cavaquinho)
Elton Medeiros, Marcal
Oscar Bigode
Elizeu Felix, Juquinha
Maurilio da Silva Santos

Track List

01 - Perder e Ganhar (Paulinho da Viola)
02 - Sol e Pedra (Paulinho da Viola)
03 - Dona Santina e Seu Antenor (Paulinho da Viola)
04 - Para Um Amor no Recife (Paulinho da Viola)

12 - Um Certo Dia Para 21 (Paulinho da Viola)

Lindolfo Gaya - Gaya (1970)

Maestro Lindolfo Gaya is without a doubt one of the greatest arrangers of Brazilian popular music. Most of the albums available at Loronix has Lindolfo Gaya as collaborator as arranger, producer and mainly by the years he was in service of Odeon and RCA Victor as Musical Director. In the other hand, Gaya solo albums are not well represented at Loronix, with a few exceptions. Let's start gathering Maestro Gaya solo albums, this is the first, very different from what is expected by we use to know by him.

This is Lindolfo Gaya - Gaya (1970), for Odeon. I've been wondering today what Maestro Gaya and Odeon had in mind to release this album. It is very similar, or even based on the acclaimed Jose Briamonte - Briamonte Orchestra (1970), for Elenco, released in the same year and with the same concept of dancing orchestration with female chorus on top of blockbusters. Additionally, both albums share two tracks, Airport Love Theme and Tema de Cristina. Anyway, if you are a fan of Maestro Gaya, member of the legion of Briamonte Orchestra appreciators and also in the mood of a Erlon Chaves with Banda Veneno album, this is the flawless pick. Tracks include:

01 - Viagem (Taiguara)
02 - Airport Love Theme (A. Newmann)
03 - Let It Be (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)
04 - Tema de Cristina (José Briamonte)
05 - Reflections Of My Life (Campbell / McAleese)
06 - Yellow River (J. Christi)
07 - Close To You (H. David / Burt Bacharach)
08 - Marilyn's Theme (V. Gambella / G. Brown)
09 - Something (George Harrison)
10 - Serenade In Blue (H. Waeen / M. Gordon)

Tema 3 - Madrugada 1:30 (1969)

Hello, Good Evening! moos never stops amazing me. His great passion to the Music from Brazil and the work he is doing on improving his ripping and image processing skills makes me feel very proud of having moos as our great friend. He sent this fantastic album using the Mail Big File icon and just wrote a message with no signature. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm quite sure this LP came from moos. If I'm wrong, please correct me. If I'm right, moos, say hello, please.

This is Tema 3 - Madrugada 1:30 (1969), for Equipe, following the very nice Tema Tres - Tema 3 (1966), for Atonal. Release date is uncertain (*** not anymore, Justin sent the correct date on comments section) but it was probably released in 1967 or 1968. Tema 3 is lead by the Brazilian pianist and maestro Gilson Peranzzetta, credited as Gilson Peranz by Equipe. The trio also features Luiz Roberto (bass) and Atayde (drums) with the special guest, arranger and violao player Alberto Arantes. I'm not sure if the bassist Luiz Roberto is the same from Os Cariocas, this is something that Loronixers can confirm on comments. Several others musicians are credited as special guests on some tracks, you can check the full listing inside the music. Thanks moos, you are a great finder. Tracks include:


Gilson Peranz
Luiz Roberto

Track List

01 - Andança (Danilo Caymmi / Paulinho Tapajós / Edmundo Souto)
02 - Grão de Café (Luis Bonfá)
03 - Walk On By (David / Burt Bacharach)
04 - Ela Vem de Volta (Roberto Neves)
05 - Sabiá (Chico Buarque / Tom Jobim)
06 - Zond 5 (Gilson Peranz / Luis Cardoso)
07 - The Fool On The Hill (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)
08 - Samarina (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
09 - Trem da Manhã Branca (Norival Reis / Jorge Duarte)
10 - Afro (Alberto Arantes)
11 - Amazonas (João Donato)

Vinicius, Marilia Medalha e Toquinho - Como Dizia o Poeta... Musica Nova (1971)

Marilia Medalha took me by surprise a week ago when Loronixers gave a very good feedback on comments and downloads of her debut a LP for Philips. I decided to call her back to our community, not alone this time, but accompanied by two great Bossa Nova icons, Vinicius de Moraes and Toquinho.

This is Vinicius, Marilia Medalha e Toquinho - Como Dizia o Poeta... Musica Nova (1971), for RGE. It seems to be impossible for Vinicius de Moraes and Toquinho to make a regular album, perhaps even if they want to make it. They also have a special talent to bring Brazilian Divas for collaborations and make them shine, delivering their best. The repertoire features a couple of well-known songs by the duo, with highlights to Tarde em Itapoan, Como Dizia o Poeta and Na Tonga da Mironga do Kabulete, arrangements by Maestro Jose Briamonte. Musica Nova is that kind of album that saves your whole day if you take it for a hearing in the morning as your first thing you do. Tracks include:

01 - Tarde Em Itapoã (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 - Como Dizia o Poeta (Sobre o Adágio de Albinoni) (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 - Tomara (Vinicius de Moraes)
04 - Valsa Para o Ausente (Vinicius de Moraes / Marília Medalha)
05 - Samba de Gesse (Vinicius de Moraes)
06 - A Tonga da Mironga do Kabuletê (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes) with Monsueto
07 - A Bênção Bahia (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 - Mais Um Adeus (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 - A Vez do Dombe (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
10 - O Grande Apelo (Vinicius de Moraes / Marília Medalha)
11 - Samba da Rosa (Toquinho / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 - Melancia e Coco Verde (Vinicius de Moraes)

Challenge | Who is singing?

Hello, Good Afternoon! Just making a quick break to challenge Loronixers with this short film, the first Coca Cola TV add in Brazil, very Brazilian by the way. The challenge is the identification of the Carmem Miranda wannabe singer. She is very famous, a top five Loronix divas on our last poll. Who is she?

Hope uEnjoy!

Robert Rutz e Seu Orgao Maravilhoso - Latino

It has been a month or two since we made the first album by this mysterious organist that uses the alias of Roberto Rutz. I thought that was the first and only album by this artist and I was wrong, here we go on another Roberto Rutz album, now by a different label, Tropicana. According with Bossanov, Roberto Rutz is the alias used by the Brazilian organist Celso Murilo. Anyway, it is another chance to find out Bossanov hint. Let's see.

This is Roberto Rutz e Seu Orgao Maravilhoso - Latino (no date), for Tropicana. Mr. Rutz delivers groovy Hammond B3 renditions of Boleros, Rumbas and other Latin music, including two Bossa Nova standards, Desafinado and Garota de Ipanema. Personnel is not credited and the back cover brings something really unique, a serial number printed by Tropicana, which is 3014. This is something for completionists and fans of Celso Murilo. Tracks include:

01 - Perfidia (A. Dominguez)
02 - Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 - Cuando Calienta El Sol (C. Rigual / M. Rigual)

Luiz Arruda Paes e Sua Grande Orquestra - Brasil Norte a Sul (1958)

Hello, Good Evening. This album was one of the hardest restorations ever made by Loronix. I have others that would be hard as this one, but as a fan of Maestro Luiz Arruda Paes, I decided to put my hands to work on it, no matter how long and how hard it would be. Now I'm happy with the results, this beautiful cover was full of mud and probably received water several times. To give you an idea, I could only understand the girl was scratching the head of a macaw when I finished the scan. It was only a red region.

Anyway, this is a Luiz Arruda Paes album, not the first 1958 issue, titled Luiz Arruda Paes e Sua Grande Orquestra - Brasil Norte a Sul (1958), Odeon as MOCB 3021, but an Imperial (Odeon subsidiary) mid 60's reissue.

This is Luiz Arruda Paes e Sua Grande Orquestra - Brasil Norte a Sul (1958), for Odeon. I decided to keep the album title and original release date since they speak a lot about the album. Brazil de Norte a Sul has a concept, which is to show the music from several Brazilian regions. The record opens with the Northeast region and then Luiz Arruda Paes starts visiting all major Brazilian states on each track. I hope you have a nice time with this album as I did this week. I did not have muscle to clear the back cover, so I'm including it with no image processing, sorry. Tracks include:

01 - Mulhé Rendeira (Tradicional)
02 - Vassourinhas (Mathias da Rocha / Joana Batista Ramos)
03 - Cidade Maravilhosa (André Filho)
04 - Onde o Céu Azul É Mais Azul (João de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
05 - Peixe Vivo (Tradicional)
06 - Negrinho do Pastoreio (Barbosa Lessa)
07 - Exaltação à Bahia (Vicente Paiva / Chianca de Garcia)
08 - Perfil de São Paulo (Bezerra)
09 - Canta Brasil (David Nasser / Alcyr Pires Vermelho)
10 - Barqueiro de São Francisco (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / Alberto Ribeiro)
11 - "Lendas Amazônicas" Tambatajá (Waldemar Henrique) Cobra Grande (Waldemar Henrique) Foi Boto Sinhá (Waldemar Henrique / Antônio Tavernard)
12 - Rei Bantu (Luis Gonzaga / Zé Dantas)

Elizeth Cardoso - A Meiga Elizeth Nr. 5 (1964)

Here we go on another Elizeth Cardoso album from the "A Meiga Elizeth" series, kindly sent by moos to Loronixers. This series has five albums and this is the third made available at Loronix. Top-notch musicians, including a mysterious organist credited as “Sir Walter Scott”, back Elizeth Cardoso. By the way, this alias makes easy to realize that a Brazilian organist also called Walter is behind Sir Scott. Let's see.

This is Elizeth Cardoso - A Meiga Elizeth Nr. 5 (1964), for Copacabana, featuring Moacyr Silva e Seu Conjunto. Thanks once again moos, this album is solid from start to the end. Elizeth Cardoso rendition to Ze Ketti song Diz que Fui Por Ai is fantastic with Walter Wanderley organ swinging a lot with Elizeth. Rildo Hora is a special guest on track 11 - Encontro com a Saudade, backing Elizeth Cardoso with violao. Personnel is credit this time. Tracks include:


Elizeth Cardoso
Moacyr Silva

Hello, Good Evening! It has been a while since we do not make one of those Para Dancar (For Dancing) albums, a very popular style in the 50's and early 60's. Think about the world in the 50's, no TVs available, the radio delivering orchestral and instrumental music and everybody waiting for the weekend to party at ballrooms. People use to buy these records to stay tuned with the music of the ballrooms and even dancing on private parties at home with Para Dancar albums.

The style was so important that even a mighty Maestro such like Henrique Simonetti made his rendition to it. Simonetti is Italian and the repertoire features only Italian songs. This is my pick to start this Sunday.

This is Simonetti e Seu Conjunto - Accarezzame (1958), for RGE, the first Simonetti release at Loronix with no orchestra, just backed by Conjunto RGE. The Italian songs selected by Simonetti are very beautiful and also very hard to write down (this is a joke). Conjunto RGE delivers nice renditions to each song on top of Simonetti arrangements. Musicians are not credited and a very well played accordion gives that Italian atmosphere. Tracks include:

01 - Accarezzame (P. Calvi / Nisa)
02 - Malatia (Armando Romeo)
03 - Chella' Llá (S. Taccani / U. Bertini)
04 - Che 'me 'mparato a Fa' (A. Trovajoli / G. Verdi)
05 - Arrivederci Roma (R. Rascel / Garinei / Giovanini)
06 - 'na Voce 'na Chitarra e 'o Poco 'e Luna (C. A. Rossi / U. Calise)
07 - Vogliamoci Tanto Bene (R. Rascel)
08 - Anema e Core (Manlio)
09 - Musetto (P. Saka / Domenico Modugno)
10 - Malafemmena (De Curtis)
11 - Guaglione (G. Fanciulli / Nisa)
12 - Picolissima Serenata (Ferrio / Amurri)

Ed Lincoln - Ed Lincoln (1968)

I'm very happy to own an original first issue copy of this album, never released at Loronix. Actually, it has been a while since we made a record by Ed Lincoln. This album landmark the first LP released by Savoya label, owned by Ed Lincoln. I made some searches to find additional Savoya albums with no success. It seems this lable had a short life, but this album is really great. Let's see.

This is Ed Lincoln - Ed Lincoln (1968), for Savoya, also known as "De Savoya album". The back cover brings a statement from Savoya Discos that explains very well this album, they say the record has 12 songs, each one very different from each other, giving the perception of hearing 12 different albums in only one record. I agree, Ed Lincoln and the top-notch musicians in the set delivering songs on different styles with arrangements by Ed Lincoln. The highlight goes to Zum Zum, Waldemar, Sack O'Woe and O Choro do Bebe. Tracks include:


Ed Lincoln
(organ, arrangements)
Durval Ferreira
Luiz Marinho
Orlann Divo
Alex Papa
Tony Tornado
