Bill Barron Orchestra - West Side Story Bossa Nova (1963)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 04 de março 2007.

Comentários originais incluídos.

Here we go again with another of those nice Caetano's tricks finding gold on records that would be not taken in consideration by regular humans. Now Caetano comes with the OST of an anthological movie film from the 60's that is all about Bossa Nova and Brazilian Music.

This is Bill Barron Orchestra - West Side Story Bossa Nova (1963), for Dauntless, the soundtrack of the musical adaptation of Romeo and Juliet set in New York City, where rival street gangs - the Jets and the Sharks - battle for territory and respect. Bill Barron Orchestra takes the lead here, making a unique record, with a nice rhythm session making use of Brazilian percussion instruments on an unusual manner. You should check this out by your own.

Tracks include:

01 - Something is Coming
02 - One Hand, One Heart
03 - Gee, Officer Krupke
04 - Cool
05 - Maria
06 - Tonight
07 - America
08 - I Feel Pretty
09 - Jet Song
10 - Somewhere

Para aqueles que gostam de West Side Story, como eu:
Ouçam as versões com Stan Kenton, Oscar Peterson e, last but not least, A versão da 'The Naras Foundation' produzida, dirigida e com arranjos de David Pack.
Entre os participantes temos desde Chick Corea & The Elelectric Band e Aretha Franklin até Selena e Little Richards, passando pór Steve Vai e Phil Collins.

Great album with finest bossajazz- this is very nice to what Caetano shows us here- Maria is always one of my favourite songs- "grande saxo tenor, grande orchestra, grande Caetano...

g picanco on Monday, 05 March, 2007
Desculpe-me zeca, desculpe-me Caetano.
Os arranjos pra sopro são legais. Os Kenny Burrel, um dos meus guitarristas favoritos, e Barron, dão conta do recado, baixo, piano, tudo certinho. Soam certos mas tem alguma coisa de errado.
Não era pra ter esse jeitão de bossanova americana. O toc__toc.toc toc__toc.toc. Com um irritante chocalho em todas as faixas. Até um reco-reco me colocam no 'I'll Feel Pretty'. O 'Tonight' é um mambossa. O 'America' tem de ser Mambo. Rumba. Ritmo latino/hispânico. É Porto Rico.
Se esquecessem da Bossanova sairia um excelente album de Jazz. Nada a ver. O baterista (Charlie Persip) é um verdadeiro metrônomo, sem um pingo de criatividade. E o José Soares? Não lembro quem seja nesse momento. Faturou a sua graninha numa percussão meia-bomba. Ah se aparecesse um Dom Um, Um Naná, Um Airto... Tudo seria bem diferente.
Infelizmente esse disco vai ficar apenas como uma curiosidade nos meus guardados. Uma pena. Arranjos e pessoal tão bons desperdiçados em uma batida diferente. Até demais.
Este é um espaço para comentários, não para críticas.
Perdoem-me. Mas é que sou um apaixonado pelo West Side Story.

Roy Budd - Buddin' Bossa (1970)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 02 de março 2007.

Comentários originais incluídos.

I spoke with Caetano about an hour ago and I forgot to get his always-useful briefing on this LP, so I'm making zecalouro's first impressions on it. Once again, Caetano sent to us a truly obscure LP that makes you run to Google additional information. Let's see how it goes.

This is Roy Budd - Buddin' Bossa (1970), for NSPL, international late Bossa Nova by the pianist Roy Buddy. It seems that Roy Budd understands the Bossa Nova business. He spent several holidays in Brazil and simply adores Brazilian Music and Buddin' Bossa is considered the album that Roy Budd wanted to make all of his life. He was so confident that you will see at back cover a Budd statement saying that Buddin' Bossa is the best Bossa Nova LP recorded outside Brazil and this record was not released in 1970, a time that several others excellent records in the same style were already released. I think this LP will be a treat to several Loronixers.

Tracks include:


Chris Karan
(drums, percussion)

Jeff Clyne

Ike Isaacs

Vic Ash

Harr Pitt

Roy Budd

Track List

01 - The Girl from Ipanema
02 - How Insensitive
03 - Desipilado (taken from back cover)
04 - I Appreciate so Much
05 - Meditation
06 - A Man and a Woman
07 - Quiet Nights
08 - One Note Samba
09 - It Only Goes to Show
10 - Little Boat
11 - So Nice
12 - The Girl from Southend on Sea

Is this the same Roy Budd from the U.K. ? The soundtrack composer?

zecalouro on Saturday, 03 March, 2007
That's right. This is the same soundtrack composer from the UK. Roy Budd.
Cheers, zeca

Thanks for this album! Much Love zecalouro!

Thomas on Tuesday, 06 March, 2007
Belated thanks for this surprise! This is a far cry from "Get Carter" but is quite interesting. British bossa? Wow! Also I think his rather immodest liner notes are hilarious....Cheers

Peter C. Budd on Monday, 03 March, 2008
Roy was always fascinated by the Bossa Nova, and we had shared our albums of the genera many times. I was supposed to have played guitar on this record, but I was unfortunately out of town at the time that it was recorded. My wife Kitty (Kathryn A Budd) did the back cover drawing, but Roy forgot to put her name on the cover. I have many recordings of Roy playing jazz, and have some old recordings of Roy when he was six years old. It is wonderful that his music lives on.

Manfredo e Seu Conjunto - Evolucao (1964)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 01 de março 2007.

Comentários originais incluídos.

I happened again, not a tragedy and no big deal, just the willing to make things perfect, but the post we decided to be the great close of the day is cancelled. Perhaps tomorrow. But I'm not bored, the replacement is great. Look at the picture. This is a very hard to find album, requested by several Loronixers. Sent by Caetano Rodrigues, The Great.

This is Manfredo e Seu Conjunto - Evolucao (1964), for RGE, perhaps one of most sought after album released by Manfredo Fest. Take a special attention to the quality of these MP3s, ripped by Caetano Rodrigues on best of breed equipment. Caetano is also an expert on those mysterious cartridges, stylus, tone arms brands and serial numbers. It is amazing. He knows everything by heart and I learned a lot with him. This is all for the benefit of our community, the deliverables were improved a lot in the last weeks and issue reporting are being kept to a minimum.

I was supposed to speak about Manfredo Fest and I'm here talking about equipments. It's because the music is self-explanatory, missing on several serious collections and essential. Mr. JimR will be pleased. Thanks Caetano.

Tracks include:


Dorimar Vasconcelos

Álvaro Brito

Luis De Andrade "Boneca"

Humberto Klaiber de Souza
(bass, harmonica)

Antônio Anunciação and Antoninho Pinheiro

Renato Cauchioli, Roberto Gagliardi, Benedito P. dos Santos and Antônio Cecato

Track List

01 - Evolução (Pery Ribeiro / Geraldo Cunha)
02 - Samba Torto (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
03 - Rio (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
04 - Mas Que Nada (Jorge Ben "Jorge Benjor")
05 - Madrugada (Luis Bonfá)
06 - Adoro o Samba (Manfredo Fest / Lili Galiteri Fest)
07 - Fuga (Durval Ferreira)
08 - Vagamente (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
09 - Pra Que Chorar (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
10 - Insensatez (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
11 - O Que Eu Gosto de Você (Silvio César)
12 - Chora Coração (Denis Brean / Osvaldo Guilherme)

Rob McConnell and The Boss Brass - Atras da Porta (1983)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 28 de fevereiro 2007.

Comentários originais incluídos.

Here we go again on another really above the average release by Caetano Rodrigues, truly great this time. I said before that I have limited knowledge and with the music made outside of Brazil, even if is based on Bossa Nova and Brazilian music, such like the fine releases we are having on this new and fantastic Caetano contribution.

In the other hand, I'm a parrot drove by feelings and experience accumulated by a few years as musician and several years as a music fan and avid listener. The first time someone sent me a Jazz record, my listening expectation was exactly what I just heard today when hearing this piece, full of solos, soulful arrangements, different situations throughout the record and within tracks, etc.

This is Rob McConnell & The Boss Brass - Atras da Porta (1983), for MCA. Rob McConnell is a renowned valve piston player and the Boss Brass is a awesome big band, active since the mid 70's with several members, so many that I could not cope with the big listing. Caetano has a special appreciation for this album and I think I will get used to it very soon. The ultimate experience will be tomorrow with zecalouro, checking his parrot reaction to this big 48 minutes set.

Tracks include:

01 - Flowers
02 - Jo Jos Dance
03 - Atras da Porta
04 - Amor Ate o Fim
05 - Autumn in New York
06 - Jobim Meddley
07 - Didi
08 - Bye Bye Blues

This is Rob McConnell & The Boss Brass - Atras da Porta (1983), at Loronix, here waiting to be reissued for Liquid Music label.

Hope uEnjoy!

Estou com sentimento de culpa, ou sei lá o que seja.
Como não tinha ouvido até hoje esse album?
Por que ninguém me contou, mostrou?
Como é que pode?
Desde o Flowers, que não conhecia, passando pelo Atras da Porta com um arranjo interessantíssimo, me lembrando na primeira metada coisa do Legrand. Com mais impacto. E o Autumn in NY? Com certeza o Cravinho iria aprovar. O Didi deve ser uma homenagem à folha seca (se bem que em 1983 já nã era mais tempo de Didi). O medley, com uma banda cheia, com volume. Mas gostei mesmo foi do samba do 'Amor Até o Fim'. Gostoso demais.
Já está ocupando o cantinho das repetíveis.

g picanco on Monday, 05 March, 2007
E repetindo, entre uma e outra novidade antiga.

Thomas on Saturday, 26 May, 2007
Can anyone provide the composers of "Flowers", "Jo Jo's Dance" & Didi? I don't think I've ever heard these songs before.
PS Zeca, this album definitely grows on you. Another fine post.

. on Monday, 18 June, 2007
Senhores, Gentlemen, I am the producer of Rob McConnell's Atras da Porta. I am also the composer of Didi, Flowers and Jojo's Dance...and I am re-releasing this album on CD soon on my new label - -
This album was my tribute to Brasil, where I have and had many friends, musicians and poets.
My email is lquidjazz@ .
Cordiales saludos, Fernando Gelbard

Gary on Thursday, 11 September, 2008
I was just about to post the answer to who wrote Didi etc, when I saw that the man himself Sr Fernando Gelbard has already responded.
But Fernando is too modest to mention his incredible album called Didi and his work with the cream of Argentinean jazz artist in the 60s and early 70s before he moved to the US where he continues to move in the best jazz circles and was indispensable in helping us to release some of these records on Whatmusic.

Charlie Byrd with Orchestra - More Brazilian Byrd (1967)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 26 de fevereiro 2007.

Comentários originais incluídos

Charlie Byrd and this Amazing cover at Loronix, just on top of my place. zecalouro would have a cardiac arrest with this thing in the real life. Parrots sometimes have problems with Macaws. Charlie Byrd seems to be a great friend of birds, in spite of Brazilian Byrd cover with Charlie Byrd smoking in front of a Macaw, bad example, Mr. Byrd. Thanks a million Caetano to make my day and the day of a thousand of Loronixers.

This is Charlie Byrd with Orchestra - More Brazilian Byrd (1967), for Columbia. Charlie Bird is an artist that deserves a special place; he was of a great help to introduce the music from Brazil for the mass United States audiences in the 60's. This record is really captivating, subtle, gentle played and very sophisticated with the orchestral arrangements by Tom Newsom. Caetano endorses this album, which is amazingly out of print, to every Loronixer. I do the same and Mr. D&C also agrees.

Tracks include:

01 - One Note Samba
02 - Weekend in Guaruja
03 - Little Boat
04 - Pretty Butterfly
05 - Berimbau
06 - Agua de Beber
07 - Jequibau
08 - How Insensitive
09 - Esperando o Sol
10 - Felicidade
11 - Foi a Saudade

WOW, the cover seems to be the triumph of Lorozilla over the Tokio-Rio city. Amazing! :-)
Thanks zeca, in Jazz no bird compares to Byrd.

victor ovando on Friday, 28 September, 2007
I listened this record probably during the mid 60's and never saw it again since then; I was looking for a particular song, Jequibau, and now that I found it would like to buy it; can u tell me how or where? Thanx

zecalouro on Friday, 28 September, 2007
By definition, the music available at Loronix is not available commercially. If your will is to have a copy of the original vinyl issue, I suggest that you try e-bay to get a used copy or any other on-line auction site.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Regards, zeca

Olavo di Txada on Thursday, 22 May, 2008
It took Bud Shank 20 years to pick up the quality of Brazilliance 1. Brazilville is the real followup to the original Brazilliance. This is an acoustic rhythm trio headed by co-leader Charlie Byrd that perfectly compliments the genius of Bud Shank's alto sax. It's a masterpiece that was 20 years in the making.

Well, I commented on Brazilville, meaning that you should check out that one, as well..

Conjunto Sambossa - Isto e Bossa Nova Mesmo (1963)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 27 de fevereiro 2007.

Comentários originais incluídos.

When you start being confident that you know Bossa Nova, the artists, the groups, the trios and the most important records, here comes Caetano Rodrigues with this contribution in the middle of several other nice ones that we have been speaking about in the last days. Now I feel happy that my mess, explained in the last post, was of use, this is a nice Samba Jazz LP.

This is Conjunto Sambossa - Isto e Bossa Nova Mesmo (1963), for Pawal, featuring a not identified instrumental combo based on drums (played such like Milton Banana), bass, guitar, piano and a great brass session, everything arranged by Maestro Nelsinho. Isto e Bossa Nova Mesmo is that kind of record that makes you wonder who are the musicians in a first hearing. I will check for more information with Caetano Rodrigues tomorrow night, since we did not speak about Conjunto Sambossa already. I could not find any other Conjunto Sambossa LP searching the Internet.

Tracks include:

01 - Influência do Jazz (Carlos Lyra)
02 - Você e Eu (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 - Barquinho (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
04 - O Pato (Jaime Silva / Neusa Teixeira)
05 - Samba de Uma Nota Só (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
06 - Nós e o Mar (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
07 - Ôba Lá Lá (João Gilberto)
08 - Só Danço Samba (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)

Brasilia Nueve - How Insensitive (1969) featuring Bill Pott and Zoots Zims

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 27 de fevereiro 2007.

Comentários originais incluídos.

Caetano Rodrigues said wonders about this album since it has arrived here. Actually, this LP was supposed to be released yesterday when that technical difficulties appeared. It is the kind of album that you make discovers each time you take for a hearing. Thanks Caetano for making it available, some type of music is very hard to identify, your knowledge has been of a great help to zecalouro and Loronixers.

This is Brasilia Nueve - How Insensitive (1969), for Decca. I forgot to check with Caetano and I think the band known here as Brasilia Nueve was assembled only to release this album, recorded in New York. The main performer is the jazz pianist Bill Potts, followed by the sax tenor of Zoot Zimns and a special artist playing vibes that could not be listed, probably due contracts obligations. They made together a nice approach to Bossa Nova, melting at the same song the Bossa Nova rhythm, suddenly changing to jazz on very complex and transitions. Thanks Caetano for this LP, which is a very hard to find information about.

Tracks include:

01 - Insensatez
02 - Brasiville
03 - Dia Dia
04 - Agora Posso Entende-lo
05 - Samba da Bencao
06 - Ensina-me Esta Noite
07 - Meditacao
08 - Como Estas
09 - Podes ir
10 - Esquecendo Voce

Hi, Zeca!
I'm back from Siberian winter (and oil)!
About Bill Pott's album.
This one is strikingly similar to Tito Puente and friends
Rio 5 a.m. on Mambo City Records!!!
The track list is the same and the cast includes: Bill Potts, pianist and arranger; Zoot Sims on sax; Richard Davis on acoustic bass; drummer Mel Lewis, Tony Gottuso and Barry Galbreath, guitar; Markey Markowitz on trumpet, and Louis Ramirez, Charlie Palmieri, Chano Pozo on percussion.
What about Puente? - he is on vibes here!!!

bossanovadreamer on Wednesday, 28 February, 2007
That is wonderful- I never heard about this album and I am a big fan of Saxoman Zoot Sims-These mornings with great albums from Caetano make fine breakfasts-while making tea the computer stars every morning-

Antonio Carlos Jobim & Astrud Gilberto - Viva Brasil, Live (1988)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 26 de fevereiro 2007.

Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, Good Night! The daylight saving days are over in Brazil and it is something that changes Loronix business as usual, mainly for the friends out of Brazil. If you are from Europe, you will see the first post one hour late. Folks at the opposite direction of our zone, one hour earlier. The only friend that does not give a damn to this change is zecalouro, he is driven by mother nature. Happy parrot.

Anyway, since you have already an introduction to this post looking at my homemade cover design, I will be straightforward, saving your time at this start of another day at Loronix.

This is Antonio Carlos Jobim & Astrud Gilberto - Viva Brasil, Live at "Jazz aus Südamerika" ZDF Jazz Club, Germany (1988), and no Label. I took sometime with the help of tcisalpino to understand what we had, this is the audio of a live concert, extracted from the video, featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrud Gilberto and probably with the accompaniment of Banda Nova. We could not check if Banda Nova is performing at this concert. If you have this video, it will be of easy identification, please let us know.
Tracks include:

01 - Água De Beber - Antonio Carlos Jobim
02 - The Girl From Ipanema - Astrud Gilberto
03 - Áquas De Março - Antonio Carlos Jobim
04 - Chega De Saudade - Antonio Carlos Jobim
05 - Wave - Antonio Carlos Jobim
06 - Corcovado - Antonio Carlos Jobim
07 - Garota De Ipanema - Antonio Carlos Jobim
08 - Felicidade - Antonio Carlos Jobim
09 - Samba De Uma Nota Só - Antonio Carlos Jobim
10 - Canto De Ossanha - Astrud Gilberto
11 - Adeus América - Astrud Gilberto
12 - Ponteio - Astrud Gilberto
13 - Áqua De Beber - Astrud Gilberto

The tracks with Jobim do sound like he is accompanied by Banda Nova. The sound and arrangements are unmistakeable. I have not seen a German performance, but I've seen and heard the Banda Nova performances from the same era in Japan, Canada, and eslewhere.
These tracks with Astrud almost sound like they were recorded in the 70's. Is that Helio Delmiro on guitar? The pianist is also very good, but I'm not too familiar with which musicians traveled with Astrud...
Anxious to hear more concrete details about all of this!

bossanovadreamer on Tuesday, 27 February, 2007
Very fine Zeca.I will check if I can get more infos- I heard about the concert here in Germany but I also do not know special details- I have to speak with brazilian music friend Frank-Oliver next morning -who is more expert in videos than Bossanovadreamer.
Best wishes

frank-oliver on Tuesday, 27 February, 2007
These are excerpts of two seperate concerts Tom Jobim and Astrud Gilberto gave in Germany for the TV station "ZDF" in Germany, the "ZDF Jazzclub".
The two shows were first aired seperately, later this best of show was made.
Jobim played with his well known "Banda Nova", Astrud with a group and guest Paulo Jobim.
I will give you the full personnel of this group later.
The same group plays on the Astrud Gilberto/James Last album.

frank-oliver on Wednesday, 28 February, 2007
I researched the following informations:
The Jobim and Banda Nova concert was recorded on April 25, 1988 in Leonberg, Germany.

The Astrud Gilberto concert is also from 1988, same place.

William O`Connell(piano)
Romero Lubambo(e-guitar)
Marcelo Gilberto(bass)
Duduka Fonseca(drums)
Jay Russell Ashby(trombone).
Special guest on some tracks: Paulo Jobim (guitar/vocal).

The Gilberto/James Last album is from 1986 with a different personnel.

Orquestra Rio de Janeiro - Velhas Ideias Novas (30 Anos de Samba) (1960)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 25 de fevereiro 2007.

This post is all about the Brazilian recording companies from the old times. Loronix has opened my eyes to see the music from Brazil on a new perspective, the record labels. It is very exciting and fun to explore Brazilian music on this way, every collector has a group of selected labels of this choice and this one is among my favorites.

This is Orquestra Rio de Janeiro - Velhas Ideias Novas (30 Anos de Samba) (1960), for Plaza, the single LP released by this wonderful orchestra that features arrangements by Severino Filho (Os Cariocas) and direction by Maestro Henrique Gandelman, the father of the Brazilian musician Leo Gandelman. This is provided by Caetano Rodrigues, also another Plaza maniac, such like zecalouro. What makes Plaza unique is the musicians, always top-notch and credited on back cover, different from others recording companies that did not care to write personnel info and even each record release date. Thanks Caetano for this awesome and very hard to find record.

Tracks include:

01 - A Voz do Morro (Zé Keti)
02 - Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)
03 - Onde o Céu Azul É Mais Azul (Alberto Ribeiro / João de Barro / Alcyr Pires Vermelho)
04 - Ai Que Saudade da Amélia (Ataulfo Alves / Mário Lago)
05 - Copacabana (Alberto Ribeiro / João de Barro)
06 - A Felicidade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 - Madureira Chorou (Carvalhinho / Julio Monteiro)
08 - Aquarela do Brasil (Ary Barroso)
09 - Maracangalha (Dorival Caymmi)
10 - Meu Consolo É Você (Roberto Martins / Antônio Nássara)
11 - Feitiço da Vila (Noel Rosa / Vadico)
12 - Agora É Cinza (Alcebíades Barcelos "Bide" / Armando "Marçal")

Sergio Ricardo - Dancante Nr. 1 (1959)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 23 de fevereiro 2007.

Comentários originais incluídos.

I don't know what to say at this post. In the other hand, I know what I feel when I heard this music, perplexity. I'm not an authority on Sergio Ricardo music and it is natural that my expectation is at least to hear songs with lyrics sung by Sergio Ricardo. Big mistake, this is the first Sergio Ricardo LP and it is (as far as I know) completely different from everything he made on his later works.

This is Sergio Ricardo - Dancante Nr. 1 (1959), for Todamerica, a release provided by the now legendary Mr. E. As I said, this is an inquisitive instrumental album from Sergio Ricardo, ahead of its time, featuring the piano of Sergio Ricardo backed by top-notch musicians. I'm wondering if there is a lost tape of a given Dancante Nr. 2 available. Anyway, I will let you hear and come back for additional considerations in comment section. Thanks Mr. E. for this one.

Mto obrigado!!!! =] Gabriel Gonzaga

Gabriel Gonzaga,
Como vão as coisas?
Que tipo de trabalho você desenvolve com a Luely Figueiró? Vou procurar os demais discos dela.
Grande Abraço, zeca

Esse é o primeiro disco (lp) do Sérgio Ricardo. Ele havia gravado 78 rpms para a RGE. Ele não gravou seu primeiro lp lá porque a gravadora achava sua música moderna demais e nada comercial.

Eu tenho um LP dela, chamado Gauchinha bem-querer, da Continental (~ 1959). Ela eh realmente uma grande cantora, mas que infelizmente nao teve muita chance nas gravadoras.


Muraro - O Incrivel Muraro (1958)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 22 de fevereiro 2007.

Comentários originais incluídos.

This is a lovely record of a very old and popular pianist, my Grandfather would love to hear this music. Perhaps nobody heard about this artist, except a few ones, such like Caetano Rodrigues. Let's see what happens with this one.

This is Muraro - O Incrivel Muraro (1958), for BSA, featuring Muraro (piano) and orchestra. I could not search successfully for Muraro info and I do not know if he got some recognition when active from the 30's to the early 60's, but it is always a pleasure to show new artists at Loronix and hopefully brings some good memories for the ones who where in touch with their art at the period they where active. When we close this circle, I feel good feelings.

Tracks include:

01 - Cabôca de Caxangá (Catulo da Paixão Cearense)
02 - Aruê Aruá (Catulo da Paixão Cearense)
03 - Beija-flor (Ernesto Nazareth)
04 - Ontem ao Luar (Catulo da Paixão Cearense / Pedro de Alcântara)
05 - Guerreiro (Ernesto Nazareth)
06 - Vesper (Ernesto Nazareth)
07 - Luar do Sertão (Catulo da Paixão Cearense)
08 - Cruz Perigo (Ernesto Nazareth)
09 - Sagaz (Ernesto Nazareth)
10 - Nasci Para Te Amar (Anacleto de Medeiros / Catulo da Paixão Cearense)
11 - Pierrot (Ernesto Nazareth)
12 - Apollonia Pinto (Catulo da Paixão Cearense)

Este é um grande disco de choro, Loronix. Belo achado.

What a fantastic LP, Zeca. It reminds me in some way of Piano com Mona by Peruchin the great cuban pianist, although of course a different reportoire entirely.
Anyway I found this interesting reference to Muraro who was Argentinean...
"Mas o destino não permitiria que eu mantivesse esse sentimento em meu coração por muito tempo, pois, em 1980, após tornar-me amigo da família Nazareth, descobri nos pertences deixados por Eulina, filha do velho maestro, duas preciosidades que deram início a todo um processo de "reabilitação" do poeta junto aos meus padrões de ética: o elepê "O incrível Muraro", com músicas de Nazareth e Catullo, interpretadas por Heriberto Muraro, pianista argentino que aqui se radicara, e o livro "Modinhas", com as letras que o bardo aplicou a quase duzentas composições."
