Lina Pesce – Concerto em Ritmo (1963)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 11 de setembro 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Let’s make a very different Para Dancar release today, pretty sophisticated by the way, featuring a Brazilian pianist and composer never introduced to Loronixers. I’m talking about Lina Pesce, perhaps the beautiful woman on this great cover artwork, but I’m not sure of it. Lina Pesce and Carolina Cardoso de Menezes are very similar artists, with Carolina being more identified as an instrumentalist while Lina Pesce as composer. Let’s see.

This is Lina Pesce – Concerto em Ritmo (1963), for Columbia, featuring orchestra with direction by Maestro Lyrio Panicalli. The second album recorded by Lina Pesce for Columbia, being the first dedicated to Lina Pesce compositions and Concerto em Ritmo, Lina Pesce renditions to classic music in Para Dancar style, both albums with orchestra directed by Lyrio Panicalli. I’m tracking down the first, it will be nice to hear Lina Pesce piano and Lyrio Panicalli orquestra playing Lina Pesce repertoire.

Tracks include:

01 – Balada Nº 2 (Franz Liszt)
02 – Panorama (De “A Bela Adormecida”) (Tchaikovsky)
03 – Tema (De “Rapsódia Sobre Um Tema de Paganini”) (Rachmaninoff)
04 – Tema do Concerto Em Mi Menor Op 11 (Frederic Chopin)
05 – Valsa (De “O Lago dos Cisnes”) (Tchaikovsky)
06 – Tema de “Giselle” (Adam)
07 – Estudo Nº 12 Em Dó Menor Op 10 Nº 12 (Revolucionário) (Frederic Chopin)
08 – Valsa Nº 2 Em Lá Bemol Maior Op 34 Nº 1 (Frederic Chopin)
09 – Adágio (De “A Bela Adormecida”) (Tchaikovsky)
10 – Tema de “Don Quixote” (Minkus)
11 – Estudo Em Mi Maior Op 10 Nº 3 (Frederic Chopin)
12 – Valsa Nº 10 Em Si Menor Op 69 Nº 2 (Frederic Chopin

A mulher da capa deste “Concerto em Ritmo” trata-se de uma modelo, não de Lina Pesce, cuja foto aparece na capa de seu LP anterior na Columbia, intitulado “Valsas Bem Brasileiras”, de 1961, que, por sinal, mereceria ser postado neste prestigioso blog.

José Luciano – José Luciano, Seu Piano, Seu Ritmo (1957)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 09 de setembro 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, Good Evening! Yesterday I was talking about statistics, numbers and how this parrot was a big fan of these things. I think I’m not alone on this. There is a page view counter on Loronix right sidebar that reached 1,000,000 page views today. I was not home and by the time I arrived, my mailbox was full of congratulations messages for such thing.

Thanks, it is nice how friends like these numbers, specially Martoni, on a way I don’t know how could capture the exact time the counter was showing 1,000,000. Thanks, Martoni, your screen capture is now part of my gallery.

Martoni: zeca esta falando de 1.000.000, mas nesta data Loronix chegou em 1.500.000 hits.

Anyway, the show must go on and I want to start today addressing many requests from the fans of Para Dancar style, they complain that I did not release the style in the last days. Let’s see.

This is Jose Luciano – Jose Luciano, Seu Piano, Seu Ritmo (1957), for Copacabana, the first out of three albums released by the Brazilian pianist Jose Luciano for Copacabana titled “Seu Piano, Seu Ritmo”. The first thing that comes to my mind when looking at this album and this cover artwork is to understand how such, how can I say, “sexy” cover is released in 1957. You should agree that this girl is really ahead of the “standards” of that time. Jose Luciano performs a repertoire of Sambas based on Brazilian and international standards.

Tracks include:

01 – Tarde Demais (José Luciano)
02 – Conceição (Jair Amorim / Dunga)
03 – Love Is a Many Splendored Thing (Paul Francis Webster / S. Fain)
04 – Pois É (Ataulfo Alves)
05 – Crepúsculo de Amor (Vicente Paiva / Lita Rodrigues)
06 – Teus Olhos Entendem os Meus (Haroldo Eiras / Victor Berbara)
07 – Brasília (José Luciano / Mário Flávio) – Amar Outra Vez (M. Stoloff / G. Sidney)
08 – Quintandinha (Djalma Ferreira)
09 – So In Love (Cole Porter)
10 – Canção da Volta (Antônio Maria / Ismael Netto)
11 – Dancing In The Dark (A. Schwartz / H. Dietz)
12 – Dó-ré-mi (Fernando César)
13 – Sinfonia Verde Amarelo (Pernambuco)

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

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 08 de setembro 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

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)




(*) Daniella Thompsom’s findings on personnel is available at comments section.
Thanks Daniella!

01 – De Palavra Em Palavra (Miltinho / Maurício Tapajós / Paulo César Pinheiro)

04 – Mudei de Idéia (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi)

06 – Eu Cheguei Lá (Dorival Caymmi)
07 – Minha História (Gesubambino) (Dalla / Pallotino / Vrs. Chico Buarque)

Pra quem não tem acesso a um leitor de News, aqui está o post da Daniella:

Daniella Thompson Post reply 1/7/09
It’s taken over a month to get the answer, because Aquiles forwarded
the question to Magro, who took his time listening to the album and
remembering who the musicians were. He’s still not absolutely sure
about all of them, so he sent his list to Miltinho, who hasn’t replied yet.
But Magro (who arranged all the vocals and instrumentals on the album
except for track 5, “Pois é, pra que?”), has sent me his provisional
list, which he’ll update should there be any errors.
Ashok is probably back to his rural India home and not reading this,
but for the record, these are the musicians in the MPB-4 album ‘De
Palavra em Palavra’ (1971):
Piano – José Roberto Bertrami
Bass in tracks 1 & 9 – Alexandre Malheiros
Drums in tracks 1 & 9 – Ivan Conti “Mamão”
7-string guitar – Dino Sete Cordas
6-string guitar in track 1 – Miltinho
12-string guitar – José Menezes
Electric guitar – José Menezes
Electric guitar in track 10 – Daudeth Azevedo “Neco”
Cavaquinho – Daudeth Azevedo “Neco”
Flute – Celso Woltzenlogel & Jorginho da Flauta
Not 100% certain, but most probable:
6-string guitar in all the other tracks – Daudeth Azevedo “Neco”
Bass in all the other tracks – Alexandre Malheiros
Drums in all the other tracks – Ivan Conti “Mamão”
“Pois é, pra que?” was arranged by Roberto Menescal.

Sergio Ricardo & Lindolfo Gaya – Esse Mundo e Meu (OST) (1965)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 20 de dezembro 2006.
Comentários originais incluídos.

This is a Caetano Rodrigues contribution that was waiting for a chance for a several weeks. Blame it on zecalouro for it. He kept on secret a wonderful and very hard to find LP, anyway, Christmas is coming and maybe he wants to release the some nice surprises to celebrate.

Meet, Sergio Ricardo & Lindolfo Gaya – Esse Mundo E Meu (OST) (1965), for Forma as FM-5. The collectors use to know by heart the identification code from the record labels that they like most, such as: ME-XX for Elenco, MOFB XXXX for Odeon, etc.

I never had a request for this FM-5 OST, which is really surprising.
Esse Mundo E Meu is black and white movie picture directed by Sergio Ricardo that follows two men living in a Rio de Janeiro slum: a black shoe-shiner and a white mill worker. I never saw this movie and perhaps it is not available on DVD or VHS, but the soundtrack is nice with Sergio Ricardo compositions and Lindolfo Gaya arrangements.

Turibio Santos – Villa Lobos (1971)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 05 de setembro 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

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

Orquestra de Camara Jean-Francois Paillard

Maxence Larrieu

Lucien Debray

Henri-Rene Pollin

Turibio Santos

Francois-Joel Thiolljer

Lily Laskine

Jean-Francois Paillard

Track List

01 – Concerto Para Violão & Pequena Orquestra (Villa-Lobos)
01 – Alegro Preciso
01 – Andantino
01 – Andante
01 – Cadenza
01 – Allegro Non Troppo
02 – Prelúdios (Villa-Lobos)
02 – Nº 1 em Mi Menor
02 – Nº 2 em Mi Maior
02 – Nº 3 em Lá Menor
02 – Nº 4 em Mi Menor

Brazilian-influenced classical here? The answer is yes. There are many. However, I’m not versed on this subject. I think it is better keep my pickings on a “safe zone” with Villa, Turibio and others.
The surprise of the day was a great find, another MIS LP of Maria Lucia Godoy. Do not miss her first release, one of my favorites.

Pleasant surprise! I have these albums on cassettes recorded by my guitar teacher. The cassettes have worn thin with time, so your transfers are most welcome, as I come back to these recordings regularly.
Question: Side 1 of the album has only 5 MP3 files, and there are 6 on the cover of the album. The last part of the concerto and the first part of the sextet are both “Allegro non troppo”. Is there a mistake?
Thanks very much,

Tema 3 – Madrugada 1:30 (1969)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 04 de setembro 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

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)

Lindolfo Gaya – Carlos Machado Apresenta, Rio de 400 Janeiros (1965)

Rio de 400 Janeiros

Jean de Léry que aqui estêve nos tempos de Villegainon e foi o primeiro que se ocupou com a música da terra carioca, conta, num livro publicada em França, em 1557, que durante duas horas, ouviu seiscentos índios cantando afinados e com tanta arte que o deixaram entusiasmado.
Depois, com os portuguêses, vieram as violas. E com as violas o amor, o ciúme e a saudade.
Da Africa chegaram os negros. E com êles todo um instrumental típico que se fixou nos nossos usos e costumes. De tudo isto se pode dizer que a História do Rio de Janeiro caminha através de lundús, fados, chôros, modinhas, maxixes, sambas, numa rapsódia de sentimentos, esperanças e ambições.
O jeito encontrado para apresentar, num show, a História do Rio de Janeiro foi contá-la não através de estórias mas atraves de canções.
As palavras de Estácio de Sá dirigindo-se ao Rei Dom Manuel, em 1565, parecem escritas para serem ditas com música; - “assim te vejo, ó cidade, raínha do nosso Empório e das Riquezas do Mundo”.
Alguns anos depois, o Rio de Janeiro já era um cancioneiro vivo. Cantou o povo quando a cidade foi elevado á categoria de capital do reino do Brasil. Vibrou, em hinos triunfais, com a chegada da côrte, da Rainha Dona Maria e do Príncipe Regente. Nos tempos do I.° Império cantou com malícia os lundús que imortalizaram uma era de galanteria e de amor. Das europas veio a valsa que, de nobre, se aburguezou e depois se amorenou virando valsa de esquina. E vieram os hinos da liberdade. E veio a República. Veio o sêculo XX.

E foi de aí, de todo êsse passado de ritmos e de melodias, que nasceu, em côres, em figuras, em luz, numa hora espetáculo, esta epopéia de uma cidade que tem por título Rio de 400 janeiros.

Janeiro de 1965

(Texto da contracapa do disco).

Hello, Good Night! This LP is the original soundtrack of a Musical number directed by Carlos Machado and performed in 1965 at The Golden Room of Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio de Janeiro. Correct me if I’m wrong, but LPs from the 60′s with OST are not common, which makes this a wonderful pick.

This is Lindolfo Gaya – Carlos Machado Apresenta, Rio de 400 Janeiros (1965), for Elenco. The last Os Cariocas release, Rio de Quatrocentas Bossas is in the same “spirit” of this one, the celebration of the 400 anniversary of Rio de Janeiro. I’m not sure how hard to find is this LP, but it is one of the most classy and produced Elenco release, beautiful cover artwork with a painting of an early Rio de Janeiro by Rugendas. Front cover and back cover are included in HI-RES. Special attention for the last track, Cidade Maravilhosa, it is the hymn of Rio de Janeiro City.

Tracks include:

01 – “Bossa Nova” — Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes) — Blues Walk (C. Brown)
02 – Maxixe (Lindolfo Gaya)
03 – Samba do Avião (Tom Jobim)
04 – “Medlley Carmen Miranda” — O Que É Que a Baiana Tem (Dorival Caymmi) — Taí (Joubert de Carvalho) — Diz Que Tem (Vicente Paiva / Haníbal Cruz) — Good Bye Boy (Assis Valente)
05 – Valsa Debret (Lindolfo Gaya)
06 – Rio (Ary Barroso)
07 – Praça do Século XVII (Lindolfo Gaya / Chianca de Garcia)
08 – “Escola de Samba” — Tiradentes (Estanislau Silva / Décio Carlos / Penteado) — Chica da Silva (Anescar do Salgueiro / Noel Rosa de Oliveira) — Lá Vem Portela (Billy Blanco) — Exaltação à Mangueira (Enéas Brites da Silva / Aloísio Augusto da Costa)
09 – Polka (Lindolfo Gaya)
10 – Calendário (Vicente Paiva / Chianca de Garcia)

Lindolfo Gaya – Gaya (1970)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 05 de setembro 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

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)

Ed Lincoln – Ed Lincoln (1968)

Ed Lincoln (Eduardo Lincoln Barbosa de Sabóia)
31 de maio 1932 - 16 de julho 2012

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 02 de setembro 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

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


Track List

01 – Zum Zum Zum (Silva / Adamastor)
02 – Waldemar (Devel / Orlann Divo)
03 – O Choro do Bebê (De Savoya)
04 – Catedral (Celinho)
05 – Já Estou Aqui (Ed Lincoln / Celinho)
06 – Cumba-iê (Ed Lincoln / Celinho)
07 – Se Correr o Bicho Pega (Devel / Orlann Divo)
08 – Sack O’woe (Saca-uô) (C. Adderley)
09 – É Demais (Ed Lincoln)
10 – Dá-me Teu Coração (Durval Ferreira / Orlann Divo)
11 – Balá-balá-cuê (Devel / Orlann Divo)
12 – Bon Jour (Durval Ferreira / Flávia)

A má notícia é que Ed Lincoln faleceu na última segunda-feira, dia 16/07/2012, aos 80 anos.

swingbossa said…Great album! I really like Ed’s funky take on Sack o’Woe, which is one of my favorite 60s jazz blues tunes. It’s great how Ed (and Walter Wanderly, and Ze Maria etc) all have different organ sounds, and none of them sound like Jimmy Smith. I love Jimmy Smith, but not everyone has to sound like him.

This is a masterpiece in my opinion. Probably the best Ed Lincoln album, that Loronix mustn’t miss. Sometimes I put the music on some little parties that my friends do and I always use some tracks of this. People love it. Its very energic and groovy. Unmissable!

Hello, Good Evening. I’m amazed and really grateful to cvllos for sending this fantastic album to our community, a never released album recorded by one of our favorites, the legendary Juarez Araujo, also known as just Juarez, introduced to our community by Jean do Trombone and bossanovadreamer.

This is Juarez – O Inimitavel Juarez (1962), for Masterplay, featuring Juarez sax tenor renditions of Brazilian standards on side A and international standards on side B.

Jorge Marinho

Hello, Good Evening! I have been receiving several emails supporting our Loronix Samba Saturday; Samba enthusiasts are really great, thank you! Just want to remember that Loronix Samba Saturday has also a partner, Justin also delivers Samba on Saturday at his website. However, some friends are requesting to change the day to Friday and some others are requesting to make it on Saturday and also on Friday. This is something that I need to think about and make the right decision.

Meanwhile, let’s make this Friday a transitional day to Loronix Samba Saturday, a classy transition by the way, showing Loronixers one of the most important artists that dedicated his art to Choro, Jacob do Bandolim.

This is Jacob do Bandolim – Jacob e Seu Bandolim | Assanhado (1966), for RCA Candem. Assanhado is a compilation with well known Jacob do Bandolim songs, perfect for fans and useful for those who want to hear Jacob do Bandolim for the first time. All tracks are solid with highlights to Assanhado, Andrea de Sapato Novo, Doce de Coco and Saxofone, Porque Choras. It is impossible to go wrong with Jacob do Bandolim.

Tracks include:

01 – Assanhado (Jacob do Bandolim)
02 – Flor do Abacate (A. Sandim)
03 – Bola Preta (Jacob do Bandolim)
04 – André de Sapato Novo (Andre Victor Correa)
05 – Graúna (Joao Pernambuco)
06 – Vascaino (Jacob do Bandolim)
07 – Língua de Preto (H. Lopes)
08 – Doce de Coco (Jacob do Bandolim)

Sivuca – Sivuca (1979)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 01 de setembro 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

It has been a very long time since we made the last album by Sivuca, I’m not taking in consideration his last release with Rildo Hora, I’m talking about a Sivuca career album as main performer.

Sivuca is all about Loronix and people always give nice feedback on his music. I think this album will take everybody by surprise, I took a lot of time digging the back cover to find the name of the guy who sings throughout the record and for my surprise, Sivuca sings lyrics and he makes it very beautiful. I hope people get pleased on hearing Sivuca again as I was today.

This is Sivuca – Sivuca (1979), for Copacabana, a great session with the atmosphere of being recorded like a friend’s rehearsal. Sivuca has some special guests of note, such as Hermeto Pascoal on tracks Nosso Encontro and Sambura de Peixe Miudo, Glorinha Gadelha, which is Sivuca’s wife also takes part at Joao e Maria, Doce Doce and Sambura de Peixe Miudo. Remaining musicians are not credit, but the back cover brings session pictures with Katia de Franca, Ivan Machado, Claudio Jorge, Ze Carlos and Teo Lima on Drums.

Tracks include:

01 – Mãe África (Sivuca / Paulo César Pinheiro)
02 – A História Se Repete (Sivuca / Paulinho Tapajós)
03 – Nosso Encontro (Sivuca / Hermeto Pascoal) with Hermeto Pascoal
04 – Fogo Pagô (Sivuca / Humberto Teixeira)
05 – Doce Doce (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha) with Glória Gadelha
06 – Le Joies Du Matin (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha)
07 – O Dia Em Que El Rei Voltou à Terra de Santa Cruz (Sivuca / Paulinho Tapajós)
08 – João e Maria (Sivuca / Chico Buarque) with Glória Gadelha
09 – Barra Vai Quebrando (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha)
10 – Céu e Mar (Johnny Alf)
11 – Samburá de Peixe Miúdo (Sivuca / Glória Gadelha) with Hermeto Pascoal / Glória Gadelha

Hello, Good Evening! Loronixers contributions taken from old K-7 tapes are coming. It is now common. However, it is not possible to make all them, we should have criterion, such as the quality of the sound and at most, the importance and relevance of the music.

Luiz Harding sent this one, meeting everything, amazing sound and a really interesting concert with Raul de Souza and Frank Rosolino performing together on a Brazilian Jazz Festival held in Sao Paulo in 1978. It is a great concert and they have the accompaniment of top-notch musicians. Tracks could be identified with one exception, the last one.

This is the first experience with K-7 tapes; feel free to write comments about it.

Tracks include:


Raul de Souza and Frank Rosolino

Mathias Matos

Jose Alves

Chico Batera

Song nr 4 – isn’t It “Bottom Heat” from “Sweet Lucy”

Pablo on Sunday, 05 August, 2007
The track 4 is a 2in 1, the first song seems to me, a version of UMBABARAUMBA de Jorge Ben, the other one, who knows; but with a jazzy feeling, I think that the track 4 is a forgettable one.

Maciel – Maciel Toca, Voce Danca (1960)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 04 de julho 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, Good Evening! Wooow! Sorry, I could not control my enthusiasm when I opened the new Caetano Rodrigues packaged and found this fantastic album. My first contact was at Caetano’s place in Sao Paulo. I look to Caetano and asked: “Can I get someday to Loronix?” and he said “Yes!!”. Since then it has been more than a month until the arrival today. I decided to make it first and I hope you get the same good feelings when hearing this fantastic album, like I had this afternoon.

This is Maciel – Maciel Toca, Voce Danca (1960), for Polydor. Maciel cannot be taken as Ed Maciel, which is also a trombonist. Maciel has many years of collaboration to Brazilian music; being also a Classical musician, member of Orquestra Sinfonica do Teatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro.
Maciel blows great here and several Brazilian Maestros delivers arrangements to Maciel Danca, Voce Toca, as follows: Astor Silva, Moacir Santos (yep!), Severino Filho, K-Ximbinho and Cipo. Personnel listing is not available, but arrangers are associated to each track bellow.

Tracks include:

The Arrangers:

Astor Silva
“Maciel na Gafieira”, “O Que Fazer”, “Ginga das Palmas”

Moacir Santos
“Blue Gardenia”, “Night and Day”

Severino Filho
“A Felicidade”, “Stella by Starlight”, “O Nosso Amor”, “Tu mi Delirio”

“Gracas a Deus”, “Joga a Rede no Mar”

“Como e Bom Amar”

Track List

01 – Maciel na Gafieira (Ed Maciel)
02 – Blue Gardênia (B. Russell / L. Lester)
03 – A Felicidade (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Graças a Deus (Ivan Paulo da Silva “Carioca”)
05 – Que Fazer (Jaime Florence “Meira” / Jota Santos)
06 – Stella By Starlight (V. Young / N. Washington)
07 – Night And Day (Cole Porter)
08 – O Nosso Amor (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – Tu Mi Delirio (C. Portillo de La Luz)
10 – Ginga das Palmas (Ivan Paulo da Silva “Carioca”)
11 – Joga a Rede no Mar (Fernando César / Nazareno de Brito)
12 – Como É Bom Amar (Maciel)

300 Discos Importantes:
Ao contrário do que diz o Zeca, acredito que este Maciel é, sim, o Ed Maciel, também conhecido como Edmundo Maciel - . Seu irmão mais novo, Edson Maciel, também trombonista, seguia uma linha mais jazzista - e parece não ter nenhum disco solo.

Wow, sorry for this Zeca, that I reply your words like a parrot -) but Maciel really blows great.
I never saw this cover.This is another example of Caetano’s albums nobody knows about.
Very fine.
Best wishes

cvllos on Wednesday, 04 July, 2007
Zeca, vc deixa os fãs de Rosolino “nervosos”, ao promete-lo..Aqui, será interessantissimo ouvir Maciel, cercado de gente competente, em plena época em que admiramos Vittor Santos. Mais um muito obrigado! A vc, Zeca, e a Mestre Caetano. Privilégio!!!
