Hello, Good Evening! This is the start of the special posts specially selected to our 1st Loronix year celebration, actually, this is just the warm-up day, the pearls are flying from Sao Paulo to Rio on a small and very special package prepared by Caetano Rodrigues in just one day. I always like to remember everybody how Caetano Rodrigues is so important to Loronix and to the Music from Brazil. There will be a special post dedicated to Caetano Rodrigues, which is a confidential surprise, next Saturday. He is the man of the century and deserves all our appreciation and respect.
Let's start this warm-up day with instrumental music, my favorite music and probably the music that better translates Loronix. The instrumental music is unique since it does not depend on preferences on singing styles and lyrics languages; it is universal and easily introduced and appreciated worldwide. I think I could not make it better than selecting Samba Jazz, which is the favorite style of Loronixers, according with our survey.
This is Primo Trio - Primo Trio (1965), for Musidisc, the first record of the legendary pianist of Brazil South Region Primo released at 12" format. This is pretty self-explanatory and never released before at Loronix, awesome Samba Jazz music with the classical piano, bass and drums formation. I hope you really enjoy this first post of our celebration. Tracks include:

01 - Garota Morena (Jair Amorim / Evaldo Gouveia)
02 - Mascarada (Zé Keti / Élton Medeiros)

Truly amazing, thanks and congratulations! I hope loronix will exist for years to come!
Gary on Friday, 12 September, 2008When I reissued Primo's Sambossa LP on Whatmusic, as usual I counted on Durval Ferreira's incredible knowledge of who/what/where everyone was hiding in the modern day Brasil.
Primo was one of the more interesting ones. He held an important job in Brasilian Government working with a senator in Brasilia.
The record was due to be released just after Christmas that year (2001? I can't remember exactly) and after many attempts I finally managed to get hold of Primo on a very crackly bad phone line (no Skype in those days!). He was so amazed that these crazy guys in London were about to reissue his 3 Musidisc LPs and he wanted to tell me all about the recordings and his time as a musician in the 60s. However, he was about to go into a Senate session in the Planalto and asked if we could speak again right after Christmas.
Unfortunately, Primo died two weeks later and of course we never got to hear his reminiscences about his music career.
Of course, the music lives on...

In the very first beginning of Loronix, I received an email from Primo's grandchild and he gave me several Word documents that Primo wrote in his last years, such like a self biography. Unfortunately, I lost contact with him to ask for permission to share or even make something more structured with the material.
Primo is a great musician, and you are right, his music remains.
