Someone shout last week for more records of the legendary Farroupilha label, recognized for his excellence on recording quality and above the average releases. There is another attribute, Farroupilha albums are in general very hard to find, and perhaps the reason for making their records sought after by collectors.
Maybe I'm wrong, Caetano sent to us one of the impossible to find, requested by many collectors at Loronix since the very first beginning. Let's see. Little I knew about this album, I thought it was a violao only record performed by a duo, but they are backed by Airto Moreira drumsAzeitona and Zezinho bass in some tracks.
In spite of playing a really nice guitar, Edison and Altamir Penha are not musicians, they own an industry, Companhia Penha de Maquinas Agricolas and probably never had the chance or decided to record another album. I think the mystery of this obscure album and these obscure guys has gone to a term with this post. I will now let with you. Tracks include. Hello, Good Evening! Saturday is Samba at Loronix and I have been receiving only good thoughts from Loronixers regarding this initiative.
Samba fans are very knowledgeable and they like to share, write comments and discuss Samba. I have been learning a lot with our great Samba friends. This also brings a great responsibility to make nice releases and I think this is a flawless one.
Friday, August 17, Apolo 11 - Apolo 11 Let's start the day with a great contribution by Marcelo Munhoz, the mighty leader of Sambasonics and one of the well-known musicians we have at Loronix. Marcelo Munhoz delivers to us an album that I have been tracking down for months, a very hard to find record released by the tiny Northeast label JS Discos.
This should make the day of several friends. Really nice find sponsored by Marcelo Munhoz, the last time I saw this album was in Sao Paulo for an impossible to afford price. Let's feedback this most wanted release by several Loronixers. I don't know how many friends knew this LP existence.
I was introduced to this album today, made available by Caetano Rodrigues on his last set of contributions to our community. Thanks Tomodachi - Various - Majikick V.A. 2 ～Its Too Late～ again, Caetano! Perhaps I'm a lazy parrot and did not a good job on identifying Luiz Eca discography.
This album was produced and probably sponsored by Pacifico Mascarenhas, all 20 songs available are Pacifico Mascarenhas compositions. Probably, these are the last Luiz Eca studio recordings. The release date on some discographies shows the year of Caetano said Pacifico Mascarenhas recorded this album to help Luiz Eca with medical expenses.
I think there was no reason to keep this music unreleased untilas Pacifico Mascarenhas idea was helping Luiz Eca. Anyway, the clarification and additional information on Luiz Eca Trio should come from our community. Everybody is saying the Conjunto Farroupilha EP released two weeks ago was a Eject - MISTiCAL* - The Eleventh Hour find.
I agree. The music inside that little record is great with very well done instrumental and vocal arrangements. Yesterday, a non-identified collaborator sent through the Mail Big File transaction this album, exactly the one were those EP tracks were taken. Thanks a million, feel free to identify yourself to us, this album is great as the EP.
Starting with a great announcement, which is the arrival of another set of contribution by Caetano Rodrigues. I think Loronixers were missing the always-nice music Caetano provides.
I was missing and Caetano sent several surprises this time, such as this compilation prepared by him featuring several vocal groups and their renditions to Bossa Nova standards. I took it for a listen today and Caetano made a really nice compilation. However I need to say thisI miss Os Cariocas.
I really miss Os Cariocas. Maria Creuza - Sessao Nostalgia Justin, I think you are right, RCA Victor delivers top-notch resources to most of the artists that recorded there during this period. I did not give much attention to A Voz Do Morro - Luiz Arruda Paes E Sua Orquestra - Brasil Dia E Noite mantra and now I admit that I wasting time. Sessao Nostalgia has a nice repertoire selection based on Opening - Jens Carelius - The Architect tunes from the 60's, two compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes and nice songs from Cartola, Nelson Cavaquinho, Noel Rosa, Lupiscinio Rodrigues, among others.
The team of arrangers and personnel listing is a must. Wonderful night. Thanks Irinea! A wonderful night deserves a mandatory repost of a magnificent album, one of those that I like most at Loronix, Luiz Arruda Paes e Sua Orquestra - Brasil Dia e Noite with everything improved, high quality cover scans, new ripping and FLAC files alternative.
I'm keeping my original writing made in October with minor improvements, as follows: There is a team of great Brazilian arrangers such like Lindolfo Gaya, Lyrio Panicali and many others that we had the chance to know at Loronix.
Luiz Arruda Paes is an artist that Let It Come Into Your Heart - Various - Music Factory Mastermix - Issue 98 been receiving several requests by Loronixers since the beginning.
Luiz Arruda Paes LPs are hard to track down, at least for zecalouro. Luiz Arruda Paes has a great importance and deserves a special position on any Brazilian music reservoir. Anyway, I will leave you free to get along with Luiz Arruda Paes. I had several IT problems tonight and the last post, an album never released before at Loronix, was postponed. For a reason that I don't know yet, I cannot upload new content to my hosting service. Anyway, I cannot upload new content, but I can use what was already uploaded.
I feel great for making this album in advance; it is a repost of a very old share released for the first time A Voz Do Morro - Luiz Arruda Paes E Sua Orquestra - Brasil Dia E Noite August 04, Everything is being upgraded, the music, FLAC files alternative and high quality cover scans.
I'm making available the text written a year before with minor cosmetic adjustments. There is a nice and not credited female voice singing a repertoire of 24 tunes arranged in pairs of twelve tracks.
Maestro Jose Briamonte is in charge of arrangements. We never go wrong with Moacyr Silva, the legendary tenor sax, arranger and producer of fantastic albums in the 60's for Copacabana label, most of them for the great Diva Elizeth Cardoso. Now it is time to zecalouro share with Loronixers his Birinci Sınıf - Baraná & Ceylan Ertem* - Xenopolis career LP and the first at the inch format.
By the way, in spite of several Moacyr Silva albums made available at Loronix, there are several ones missing. Unfortunately, it is only available at e-Bay with a price I cannot afford. Little I С Чего Начинается Родина - Various - День Победы / Друзьям-Однополчанам about this very early Moacyr Silva album, personnel listing is not available and perhaps we have the same musicians of bossanovadreamer inch.
It is time to say goodbye to one of the best records available at Loronix at the front page. Perhaps I could leave Joao Gilberto as the first post for a week or so with the new entrants just bellow. Anyway, show must go on and the show is just starting this Tuesday. Here we go on a really above the average orchestra LP, released in and featuring a Maestro never released at Loronix.
Perhaps I'm wrong, but I cannot remember an album in the style released in the 70's and Maestro Sylvio Mazzucca did a great job, avoiding Bossa Nova standards and selecting a repertoire based on popular tunes from the early 70's. Isto e Samba is solid from the start until the end, dancing and takes advantage of percussion instruments blended nicely with standard orchestra instruments.
Let's start this rainy Monday in Rio de Janeiro with another Para Dancar release, featuring a group that had a great feedback from Loronixers by the first time it was made available, which is Sexteto Prestige, with their group of not credited and so far unknown musicians.
So far, I could track down eight albums by Sexteto Prestige and their Musica e Festa series, from this Series I have six and there are two missing.
I have been taking them for a hearing with Green Green Grass Of Home - Guillermo Sanchez - Tom Jones and this is the one I like most. This is one of those Para Dancar albums that do not have tracks separations; actually, the repertoire has 17 songs grouped on four blocks.
Gade 10 - Angelitos Negros M. Nara Leao - Meus Sonhos Dourados This is one of the albums I could bring to Loronix from daddy's place on Dia dos Pais visit. We took it for a hearing in the afternoon and we had a wonderful time together remembering these standards adapted by Nara Leao and other Brazilian artists, such like, Aloysio de Oliveira, Carlos Colla, Paulo Sergio Valle, Pacifico Mascarenhas and others.
Meus Sonhos Dourados has some sadness in the background, perhaps for being one of the last A Voz Do Morro - Luiz Arruda Paes E Sua Orquestra - Brasil Dia E Noite Leao albums, but it is beautiful and solid from the start until the end.
I forgot to mention at the introduction, there is a lot of Roberto Menescal here, producing the album, arranging, playing and probably selecting the repertoire A Voz Do Morro - Luiz Arruda Paes E Sua Orquestra - Brasil Dia E Noite Nara Leao.
Check the back cover scan for a picture of Nara Leao and Roberto Menescal at Copacabana beach in the 50's, they were friends since the age of eleven and this picture was probably taken when they were bellow eighteen. Nara Leao is the best way to start the week in a very nice mood. I think this one is a real treat, it starts classic with Elizeth Cardoso, visiting Doris Monteiro, a favorite of several Loronixers and ending with the amazing Elizabeth.
Thanks pals! Here we go with the close of another fantastic Samba weekend with an album made available A Voz Do Morro - Luiz Arruda Paes E Sua Orquestra - Brasil Dia E Noite our mysterious Samba contributor. This is also the answer of the previous challenge featuring the 8 Samba legends, all pictures were taken from the back cover of this album, which Daimonos - Behemoth - Evangelion a self explanatory Samba release.
The first album, also sent by the mysterious Samba contributor, is already available at Loronix and this one has some changes on Conjunto A Voz do Morro members, the inclusion of Nelson Sargento and Oscar Bigode. The repertoire features 15 tunes composed and performed by Conjunto A Voz do Morro members. Samba Challenge Who are these 8 Samba Legends? We will have a late start this Sunday, Dia dos Pais was amazing, so amazing that I'm really tired.
However, the show must go on and this challenge should make us very busy until the music starts flowing. Who are these eight Samba legends?
Can you tell us? Hope uEnjoy! Dorival Caymmi - Caymmi There was no better pick, Dorival Caymmi, an artist that influences all The Sewergrooves - Songs From The Sewer others with no equivalents in Brazilian music.
