I took a time today to visit the beach facilities of Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro. They made a great work on assembling an infrastructure down here; the place is clean, secure and really beautiful. However, there is an exception, the music. We should admit, in the past, the offer was really better. We did not have iPods, CDs, etc. but the music available was fantastic, take this album as an example: there was a time in Brazil that instrumental music, such as this one made by Zimbo Trio, was commercially successful.
I think this is the main reason for the average of 3,000 daily visits Loronix receives everyday. The music available here is truly amazing and this fantastic Caetano Rodrigues contribution is the perfect example.
This is Zimbo Trio – Zimbo Trio Vol. 2 (1965), for RGE, which is the second LP released by Zimbo Trio. There is no much to say about this album, a solid listen from the start until the end. Some friends even say that this one is better then their first album, the “red” one, already released at Loronix. Once again, use comments section to give feedback and also say if you feel the need to get it in looseless format.

You are absolutely right. I sometimes listen to some music in my car radio, and 99% is crap. The same vulgar, commercial and uninspired musical schemes, repeated until you get sic. Music to be sold and, in less than a year, forgotten in the darkness of the time.
And we are here listening to music made 40, 50, 60 years ago! (when the majority of us where “in the Limbo” waiting to be born). That speaks a lot about its quality.
But not only the music is great at Loronix. We find here personal references, history, culture, … which help to correctly frame this music in the context in which it was created, and allow us to enjoy it even more.
One example. I had never heard anything about Zimbo Trio, Tamba Trio, Quarteto Em Zy, MPB-4, Nara Leão, Dorival Caymmi, Edú Lobo, Carlos Lyra … until you post their LPs here, last year. And now their music is the one that I hear the most, and also I know something about their lives, their feelings, …
There you are the secret of the success of Loronix.Thanks a lot, Zeca, Caetano and the rest of Loronixers whose contributions to Loronix make very special this moment of the day in which we open the web browser to watch “what surprises has delivered today Zeca at Loronix”.

Hi, I think that all of this fantastic music should be compressed in lossless format. Most people who visit this site have fairly speed connection.

Zeca, acho que as palavras do zamurozien são exatamente aquelas que nós brasileiros, gostariamos de ler. Mais uma vez parabéns, Zeca e Caetano pelo maravilhoso trabalho de divulgação da MPBB (Musica Popular Brasileira Boa).

Tenho ouvido seus post e acho,sinceramente, que vc está abusando do direito de postar música de ótima qualidade.

Esse LP merece um upgrade prioritário em flac. Acho que é um dos melhores do Zimbo Trio, nunca foi lançado em CD, e a qualidade desse mp3 é bem inferior à média do Loronix. Um obrigado antecipado.
