Jacob do Bandolim - 10 Anos de Saudade (1979)

Hello, good evening! Jacob do Bandolim discography can be divided in two different categories, as follows: career albums, including twelve LPs, several 78rpm and participations on other artists records. The twelve LPs are really hard to find, especially the first releases in the 10-inch format. The second are the tribute albums and compilations, there are many and they are not so difficult to find.

I have been gathering every Jacob do Bandolim record that appears in front of me and I'm learning a lot with the compilations, they bring very well written liner notes with very useful information about Jacob do Bandolim, including pictures, such like the ones available on this front cover, featuring Jacob do Bandolim when he was a kid with her mother and grandfather. Let's see.

This is Jacob do Bandolim - 10 Anos de Saudade (1979), for RCA Candem, remastered tracks taken from previous Jacob do Bandolim albums, including 78rpm from the 50's and some other tracks taken from LPs released in the early 60's. Jacob do Bandolim was born in 1918, and died in 1969 with the early age of 51. The back cover describes in details Jacob do Bandolim passing, a really sad day to Brazilian music. Loronix Preview Center features the fantastic Atlantico by Ernesto Nazareth, recorded in 1951. Tracks include:

01 - Odeon (Ernesto Nazareth) 1951
02 - Proezas do Solon (Pixinguinha / Benedito Lacerda) 1961

Miltinho - Poema do Adeus (1962)

There was a time at Loronix where every month we had a new album recorded by one of the Samba interpreters that I like most, Milton Santos de Almeida or just Miltinho. I could not believe when Loronix Find It returned the last Miltinho album as of August 2007, it is almost a year and Miltinho needs to be back to Loronix first page immediately. Let's see.

This is Miltinho - Poema do Adeus (1962), for RGE, featuring Orquestra RGE with not credited maestro and musicians. Poema do Adeus is a very early Miltinho record, but is not an album recorded by a beginner. Since the 40's, Miltinho was an active artist, being member of renowned vocal groups, such like: Cancioneiros do Luar, Namorados da Lua, Anjos do Inferno and Quatro Ases e um Coringa. I'm taking advantage of the opportunity to replay a fantastic music video featuring Miltinho and Ed Motta, performing Meu Nome e Ninguem in the year of 2003. I forgot to say that Rildo Hora is the harmonica player. Tracks include:

01 - Poema do Adeus (Luis Antônio)
02 - Palhaçada (Haroldo Barbosa / Luis Reis)
03 - Estou Só (Raul Sampaio / Benil Santos)
04 - Fim de Parceria (Fernando César / Dalton Vogeler)

11 - Perdoa Coração (Marino Pinto / Aloísio de Barros)
12 - Depois (Capiba / Thalma de Oliveira)

Quinteto Violado - A Feira (1974)

It was really kind of JOAO-SP sending the third Quinteto Violado career LP to our community. I did not have any previous contact with Quinteto Violado music before Loronix and among their three albums available; this is the one that I like most. Quinteto Violado has a vast discography, counting more than 80 albums, including compilations, singles and participations. JOAO-SP contributions are not over and from now one will be more focused on the Choro style, favorite of several friends. Let's see.

This is Quinteto Violado - A Feira (1974), for Philips, featuring this fantastic cover with a picture of a Feira in the border of a river in Northeast, which I don't have idea about the river name and where this photo was taken, our friends from the Northeast will provide the answers to us. The repertoire features songs by Luiz Gonzaga, Humberto Teixeira, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Geraldo Vandre, Fernando Lona and others, performed with nice instrumental and vocal arrangements. Tracks include:

01 - Assum Preto (Humberto Teixeira / Luis Gonzaga)

Araken Peixoto

Araken Peixoto, 77, died in the afternoon of Tuesday (19), in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro. Araken Peixoto was an acclaimed pistonist, brother of pianist Moacyr Peixoto and Cauby Peixoto. Loronix tribute brings one out of several albums released by Araken Peixoto at Eldorado Label in the 80's, which is Araken Peixoto - Um Piston Dentro da Noite (1986), with the participation of Moacyr Peixoto.

Cyro Monteiro e Dilermando Pinheiro - Show Teleco Teco Opus Nr. 1 (1966)

I was saving this album for an eventual Samba Saturday at Loronix, but many friends have requested this important record since Loronix very first beginning. Some reviewers says Teleco Teco Opus Nr. 1 has an historical importance in the definition of future Samba live recordings released in the remaining 60's and 70's, being equivalent of the well-known Show Opiniao, recorded by Nara Leao and Ze Ketti in the same year, same theater and using the same format. Let’s see.

This is Cyro Monteiro e Dilermando Pinheiro - Show Teleco Teco Opus Nr. 1 (1966), for Philips, presented at Loronix by an excellent vinyl transfer taken from Philips first 1966 issue. Personnel is not credited, however, my searches were very successful on the identification of Regional do Canhoto backing the duo, including Jacob do Bandolim and Dino Sete Cordas, which is the musician playing the seven string acoustic guitar, partially shown at the front cover above. The repertoire features 33 tunes with no tracks separation. Tracks include:

Challenge | Who is he?

Our challenge game brings amazing pictures of a renowned Brazilian musician taken when he was a kid. Your very easy mission is tell us who is he.

Hope uEnjoy!

Luiz Carlos Vinhas - Luiz Carlos Vinhas e Os Kalangos (1971)

Here we go on the first and last record released by Luiz Carlos Vinhas e Os Kalangos, which is a group assembled by Laercio de Freitas in 1970 when he came back to Brazil after a couple of years in Mexico replacing Luiz Eca at Tamba 4. Luiz Carlos Vinhas e Os Kalangos had also not identified bassist and drummer from Luiz Carlos Vinhas Trio, regularly performing at Flag nightclub in the early 70’s. Let's see.

This is Luiz Carlos Vinhas e Os Kalangos (1971), for Top Tape, featuring on Side A the original version of Capim Gordura, composed by Laercio de Freitas in Mexico, while Side B brings an not usual rendition of Chovendo na Roseira (Antonio Carlos Jobim). Helcio Milito had the idea of recording this little piece of madness at Top Tape. Capim Gordura was big hit, playing on radio and also television, including four performances at Buzina do Chacrinha, which is something I would like very much to watch on video. Tracks include:

01 - Capim Gordura (Laercio de Freitas)
02 - Chovendo na Roseira (Antonio Carlos Jobim)

Codo - Codo e o Violao | Serie Talento Brasileiro 3 (1977)

Hello, good evening! I want start the day with a great find, courtesy zecalouro's mother, gradually improving her contributions and now deserves the title of a good vinyl hunter. She comes this time showing an important musician never released before at Loronix, Clodoaldo Brito, widely known as Codo, a Brazilian guitarist and composer from the state of Bahia. Codo had a active career as musician, recording eight albums as main performer, two singles and more than 90 compositions. Let's see.

This is Codo - Codo e o Violao | Serie Talento Brasileiro 3 (1977), for CID, featuring six instrumental renditions of Brazilian standards and six Codo compositions, the ones that I like most. Codo delivers a unique playing style, accompanied by not credited musicians. My highlight goes to 07 - Brincando com as Cordas (Codo), which is the selected Loronix Preview Center track. I'm convinced everybody should have a solid entertainment with this first album and Codo forthcoming releases at Loronix. Tracks include:

01 - Quadradinho (Codó)
02 - Viola Enluarada (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
03 - Beija-me (Roberto Martins / Mário Rossi)

11 - Canção de Amor (Elano de Paula / Chocolate)
12 - Minha Favela (Codó / Francisco Dias Pinto)

Caetano Veloso - Qualquer Coisa (1975)

I thought I could show and review this album without saying I'm a big fan of Caetano Veloso. So I decided to be open and honest with you, I'm a big fan of Caetano Veloso and this album is definitively one of his best releases in the 70's. I could realize how great it is after spinning today after many years. Qualquer Coisa was recorded in the same session of Joia (Caetano Veloso masterpiece) and were released simultaneously, so we should take this one as the continuation of Joia. Let's see.

This is Caetano Veloso - Qualquer Coisa (1975), for Philips, featuring the piano of Joao Donato and Quarteto em Cy as special guest on track 07 - Jorge de Capadocia. I had the chance to listen to this album as soon it was released with the age of ten, being very important for me, Caetano Veloso renditions of three The Beatles tunes available on Side B, were my first contact with The Beatles music. I read several reviews saying these three cuts spoils this album, but I like them very much as I like the whole experience provided by Caetano Veloso with Qualquer Coisa, which is an album that you will spin several times. Tracks include:


Caetano Veloso
(voice, violao)
Joao Donato
Perinho Albuquerque
(violao, piano, arrangements)
Sergio Barroso
Eneas Costa
Djalma Correa
Perna Froes
(strings arrangements)
Fernando Leporace
Hermes Contesini
Quarteto em Cy

Copa 7 - O Som do Copa 7 (1979)

Hello, good evening! I want to start today with the reposting of Copa 7 first LP, now taken from my vinyl, which is the first 1979 issue, released by Top Tape label. Copa 7 is the legendary group that was forged inside Black Rio movement in Rio de Janeiro, blending American soul with the sounds of Brazil, such like Banda Black Rio, but a little bit wilder. This is a truly rare album and this is a nice chance to listen it with the original vinyl output. Let's see.

This is Copa 7 - O Som do Copa 7 (1979), for Top Tape. I'm gathering Ed Motta's review on Copa 7 for, I cannot make better than Ed Motta. Thanks, Ed Motta. Tracks include:

"Here's the scene: It's the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro at the beginning of the 1970s: The very streets which had previously played host to the traditional 'blocos de carnaval' for the massive February outdoor party that is Carnival, and the passionate guitar-led laments of the most beautiful choros, are now beginning to swing under a very different suingue: the imported sound of American soul and funk, courtesy of the now legendary local DJs: Big Boy, Ademir Lemos, Paulao, Monsieur Lima and many other sound systems with names like Soul Grand Prix, Furacao 2000 and Black Power…

Many records that today have become the holy grail of collectors played out the soundtrack to this era, from the Dutch group Reality, through Cane & Abe, Masterfleet to Raw Soul
Express, Mickey Murray and of course the classics of James Brown, The Meters, Kool & The Gang, B.T. Express and Bohannon that played on the suburban decks alongside the post-Bossa of Cassiano, Wilson Simonal, Tim Maia and Jorge Ben.

The dance bands, the so-called "bandas de baile", that played live sets mixed in with the records that the DJs dropped had to be incredibly versatile to stay up there with the eclectic sounds being played - a successful melding of samba with soul-funk and even Italian pop songs and French chansons!

The true popstars of the bailes were organist Ed Lincoln's classic line-up that featured Orlandivo, Durval Ferreira, Tony Tornado and other killer players - the group which kicked off the whole scene a decade before. From these early sensations the "bandas de baile" were formed. Groups like Rancho, Brasil Show, Fanks and the biggest cult of all, and still active today 30 years on, the Copa 7.

Bands with the same name are nothing new in the music business and in the case of Copa 7 they shared their respected 'Appellation Controlee' with the second line-up of J.T. Meireles' Copa 5, also called Copa 7 and which only recorded a single LP for London Records in the late 60s*. Our Copa 7 launched their recording career with the rare single, and classic baile groove, Sabada [b/w Copa 7 No Samba - Top Tape]. This song, written by Ronaldo Barcellos, a collaborator with both Banda Black Rio and Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti, is stil
l the number one request at the regular shows the group command in the few clubs still carrying the torch for the philosophy behind the original bailes.

The first LP O Som da Copa 7 came out in 1979 and was followed close
ly by 1980's O Som da Copa 7 Vol 2, the originals of which are extremely rare today and have become a holy grail for those seeking out something special in Brasilian music beyond the stereotypical batucada.

To get some idea of the spirit the band purveys on these LPs one has to imagine the Mizell Brothers had dropped by the far flung suburbs of Rio (places like Madureira, Ramos, Penha, Cascadura, Abolicao, Nilopolis) with an ARP String synth under their arms and found a s
amba soul group that mixed Erlon Chaves with the Blackbyrds, whilst drinking beer at the same table as vocalist Damiao, devotee of that sweet voice of reggae, Horace Andy! Mix this heady brew together, recording sessions at the Estudios Haway (Hawaii Studios was the Studio One of the Black Rio bands), and we're ready to get down!

Check out the mellow instrumental funk of Gangorra written by guitarist/arranger Dionisio, (now living and playing in New York), the humour of Plantei Vagem deu Feijao and the
Norman Harris-style phase pedal guitar that you could almost call Philly-Samba. Coupled with Paulinho's bass on Mulher Absoluta, with its full on chorus and phase pedals, it all adds up to make this debut LP obligatory listening for anyone trying to understand the true sound of the bailes.

In Vol 2 Dionisio hits the right note yet again with the sublime scat vocal track Agora e Minha Vez. Here and on the other instrumental tracks the Black Rio atmosphere is no accident - Banda Black Rio's second drummer, Paulinho Black, played in some of the literally hundreds of line-ups that Copa 7 have passed through. Maria Joana has that 'everyone partying together feel' in a samba of sheer 'alegria' that sounds like something from the Fatback Band or Brass Construction.

It's possible to see similarities between the music of Copa 7 with that of Ricardo Marrero's contribution and his influence of North American Black music with its orchestral feel to the compositions, arrangements and so on….

All praise goes out to for making such a rare and expensive collectors' LPs finally available to everyone.

In Brasil today, one of the keenest audiences for the 'new sound' of things from the past, and specifically Brasilian Rare Groove, is the Sao Paulo scene, where the Copa 7 have recently undergone a kind of renaissance in the minds and ears of younger funksters mainly through the auspices of collector Rodrigo Piza and his Phono 70 and the Sunday bailes led by Marco Mattoli & Seu Conjunto.

Now, for a note of extra-musical interest, to get into the Copa 7 scene is to commit an act of gastronomic exaggeration with a great big portion of feijoada wolfed down in freaky portions and lysergically enriched for the ears to dance to!"

Heitor Villa Lobos - Cancoes de Cordialidade | Poesias de Manuel Bandeira

Hello, good evening! Daylight savings is over in Brazil and this is a major change, at least for me. If you have a pet, especially birds, you will understand what I'm saying. I went out of routine today, deciding to make some housekeeping on books and LPs and this single is the outcome of this work. I found it inside an old encyclopedia and I cannot remember who had the great idea of hiding a Villa Lobos single inside a book. Anyway, I hope he gets a brand new life at Loronix after being inside a book across decades. Let's see.

This is Heitor Villa Lobos - Cancoes de Cordialidade | Poesias de Manuel Bandeira (no date), for Caravelle, featuring on Side A, Cancoes de Cordialidade, a set of six songs composed by Villa Lobos with lyrics by Manuel Bandeira in 1945, performed here by Coro da Radio Ministerio de Educacao e Cultura with direction by Maestro Isaac Karabitschevsky. Side B brings Turibio Santos and Oscar Caceres performing as a duo two Villa Lobos compositions, Lenda do Caboclo and Ciranda Nr. 2, which is the one available at Loronix Preview Center. Tracks include:
