Radamés Gnattali – Jóias Musicais Brasileiras (1954)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 24 de Março 2009.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, good evening! My Internet access stills very limited with extremely slow upload rates. I did not want to keep Loronix with no updates today and my solution was gathering a 10-inch album, which is not an issue since we have truly amazing albums to explore in the format.

This one is a perfect example, this is the second LP released by Maestro Radames Gnattali at Continental. For reasons that I cannot understand Radames Gnattali name is not available at the front cover, just like the first one. It is necessary to read the back cover for this information. I would like to remember that covers and individual tracks are always available at the end my writings as individual downloads; the covers are available as direct download links with no Rapidshare.
Let’s see.

This is Radames Gnattali – Joias Musicais do Brasil (1954), for Continental, featuring Radames Gnattali selections. arrangements and piano.

A small and not credited band makes the accompaniement. All my searches on this album failured, which was the way I choose to retrieve credit information on the good musicians we have here, especially the guitar and accordion player.

Tracks include:

01 – Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso / Lamartine Babo)
02 – Despertar da Montanha (Eduardo Souto)
03 – Casinha Pequenina (Tradicional)
04 – Luar de Paquetá (Hermes Fontes / Freire Júnior)
05 – Nuvens (Eduardo Souto)
06 – Carinhoso (Pixinguinha / João de Barro)
07 – Guacyra (Hekel Tavares / Joracy Camargo)
08 – Linda Flor (Henrique Vogeler / Cândido Costa / Luiz Peixoto)

Jóias Musicais Brasileiras (O Clássico da Música Popular Brasileira) foi lançado em 1954 pela Continental (LP-V-2002) em forma de LP de 10 polegadas, mas contém gravações feitas em 1953 lançadas originalmente em 78 rpm.
A informação nos selos dos 78 rpm é escassa: Radamés Gnattali e Orquestra. Algumas dessas gravações constam dos CDs “Mestres da MPB – Radamés Gnattali, volumes 1 e 2″ de 1994 e 1995. A outra metade era inédita (i.e. eu não tinha). Mais do que suficiente para me tirar do meu torpor loronixiano e escrever este comentário: Mille Mercis! Grande abraço. AdHoc

Excelente Loronix!
Agradeço quando nos brinda com lançamentos de qualidade da nossa música instrumental brasileira como este pelo Radamés Gnattali.

O guitarriste muitíssimo provavelmente é José Menezes e o acordeon é Chiquinho. O baterista, por ser meu mestre e conhecê-lo muito bem, é Lucuano Perrone pelo jeito de tocar. Abraços,

Oscar Bolão

Concordo com o Bolão! A turma é aquela…um dos meus discos preferidos!!! Parabéns, Zeca!!!
Grande abraço!

Absolutely lovely album. Thank you so much.

A correction: the lyricist of “Guacyra” is Joracy (not Juraci) Camargo.
Also, since the lyricists of the other songs were named, it’s only fair to name those of “Linda Flor” as well. They are Cândido Costa and Luiz Peixoto (who wrote different lyrics but are traditionally included in the credits).
Thanks again for this jewel.

Thankyou so much – music of this era has a certain feel to it that cannot easily replicated

Varios Artistas – Vitrine Odeon (1958)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 07 de Março 2009.
Comentários originais incluídos.

I received an email from the owner of one of the coolest blogs I know, Toque Musical, which is now up and running on a new website, very similar to the previous one, but I recommend that you follow this link to make sure you will reach the right website, here: If you like Brazilian music and LPs, Toque Musical is mandatory.

TM (is that your name?) also said he made a long time ago Vitrine Odeon, and kindly sent to Loronix the scan of the original cover. Thanks TM for your great sharing spirit.

Good, the pieces are getting together, and now we need only Clovis Pereira – Ritmos Aluciantes and Elizeth Cardoso – Cancao de Amor audios. I want to thank TM for this update and also remind you again to reach his website at

Hello, good evening! Everything went wrong today and this is the reason why three covers are available. Perhaps it is the anticipated effect of the move, scheduled for Tuesday, next week, or perhaps just a coincidence. I had an amazing plan. I started with Elizeth Cardoso – Cancao de Amor (1957), a compilation released by Todamerica featuring Elizeth Cardoso phonograms taken from old 78rpm records. I heard it from the start until the end and liked a lot; the repertoire is awesome and features several Brazilian popular music standards.

Unfortunately, the output I got when transferring was really bad, several scratches and a strange background noise. I had to decline. If someone has this album and sharing spirit, please write me using the comment section or my email.

Recovered from Elizeth Cardoso’s trauma, all my attention was turned to another target, a sough after album by Loronix community and LP collectors worldwide, which is Clovis Pereira Ritmos Alucinantes (1957), for the obscure label Repertorio. This is album brings the first Hermeto Pascoal recording as an instrumentalist.

However, I had another problem, the record inside was not Clovis Pereira, but a compilation released by Odeon featuring Aloysio de Oliveira telling the story of high fidelity on side B and various artists on side A. Almost losing my forces, I decided to make it and tell you this long story.
Let’s see.

This is Varios Artistas – Vitrine Odeon (no date), for Odeon, featuring Aloysio de Olivera e O Bando da Lua, Maestro Leo Peracchi, Fon-Fon e Sua Orquestra, Mario Reis, Francisco Alves, Steve Bernard e Seu Conjunto and the first track I had the chance to hear with Conjunto Brasil Sonoro, featuring Altamiro Carrilho (flute), Carlos Matos (violao), Chaim Lewak (piano), Agostinho Silva (organ), Norato (trombone), Chiquinho do Acordeom (acordion), Hans (oboe), Jayme Araujo (alto sax), Formiga (piston) e Netinho (clarinet), a constellation of Brazilian musicians.

1 - Adeus Maria Fulo - Leo Peracchi e Sua Orquestra

What a story!
We are waiting for Ritmos Alucinantes, Clovis will appear. Thank for your more than great work. Saludos desde México.

Dear Zecaloruro, Sorry to hear about your bad experience with Elizete Cardoso’s album… but I have good news for you! Few years ago RGE released a set of 3 CDs containing all Elizete’s songs from Transamérica. Well… I have the CDs and I already checked: I have all the 8 songs listed in the album cover. Please let me know what and how you need these songs and I’ll glad to share them with Loronix. All the best, Carlos

zecalouro on Sunday, 08 March, 2009
Dear Carlos,
It would be a great achievement to Loronix archives and for all who admire Elizeth Cardoso, such like me. Please tell me what is needed to make it viable or write me at
Thanks in advance.
Kind regards,

Hello and thank you for all the music. Why is the track listing on the record label scan different?
