Ik zat al in de Braziliaanse sferen de laatste tijd en toen was
de Zomergast van de VPRO gisteren de in Brazilië verblijvende
journalist Nina Jurna. Ze liet ons wat interessante dingen zien.
Als afsluiter de film ‘Central do Brasil’, heerlijk. Vanmorgen
weer in de platenkast stuitte ik op deze prachtplaat die ik 12,5
jaar geleden van blogvriend Zecalouro kreeg tijdens m’n bezoek
aan hem in Rio. Ik denk daar nog vaak aan terug. João Roberto
Kelly en Luiz reis hadden deze relaxte samba sessie reeds in 1963.
Vier handen op de piano zoals je zelden hoort ..
I already found myself in Brazillian atmospheres lately and yester-
day we were treated by a popular Dutch tv progam, an interview
with the Dutch journalist Nina Jurna who lives in Brazil. She showed
us some very interesting things and closed the evening with the movie
‘Central do Brasil’, what a delight. This morning I went straight to the
Brazillian section on the record shelf and stumbled upon this album.
Our blogfriend Zecalouro gave it to me as a present when I visited
him in Rio 12,5 years ago. I think back to that day with pleasure.
João Roberto Kelly and Luiz Reis had this mellow samba session
way back in 1963. Four hands on the piano like you seldom hear ..

This early samba record is one from 1962. Walter Wanderley’s
organ rocks like no other’s. His records sound fresh as if recorded
only yesterday. Instrumentals are mostly not my favorites but for
this stuff I make an exception. Just like the albums of Ed Lincoln
some of his tracks are still in demand by today’s deejays. Very
cool bossa and samba from the old days..
Vandaag een vroege samba disc uit 1962. Walter Wanderley’s
orgeltje rockt nog steeds als geen ander. Zijn platen klinken nog
steeds fris alsof ze gisteren zijn opgenomen. Meestal en over het
algemeen ben ik niet zo van de instrumentalen maar voor dit spul
maak ik een uitzondering. net als sommige nummers van Ed Lincoln
zijn ook bepaalde tracks van Walter Wanderley zeer in trek bij
huidige deejays. Lekkere bossa samba sound uit de oude doos..

To make you remember the great Zecalouro and his Loronix.
He was the man that inspired me some 9 years ago with
his wonderful site. After visiting Zeca in Leme, Rio de Janeiro,
february 2007, I decided to begin my own musicblog and look
where we are today..Let’s see..
This is another Thelma, it has a few doubles with the previous
one, however there are enough differences to bring it. Bossa
for whoever likes it, enjoy listening again..
Also be sure to check this one

Just before I launched my tribute to Loronix in november 2011
I spoke to Zecalouro by mail. He told me I could use any record
from the good old Loronix I wished. Now here’s one I played so
much. Thelma had a skill of singing in a way, she kind of pulls
back the sound of the Bossa by stretching the tones as no other I
ever heard. Really astonishing cool Brazillian mood stuff.
Just get it, play it and agree, wonderful Loronix music.
Thank you for showing the way Zeca, pure gold..

Eliana and Booker Pittman were famous for their jazz
renditions. This 1974 album by Eliana solo however is
an ode to samba and such. Songs of Martinho da Vila and
Noel Rosa but also Carlos Lira and Benito di Paula.
On RCA Victor, released in Venezuela but all
Brazillian. ..and how about her looks, very
beautyful, just like the music on this
fine slice of vinyl, enjoy listening..

Speaking of football, or soccer, whatever you prefer, I decided
to make a collector about it. It begins with a track from a cd
full of 78’s collected by John Peel’s wife. Nice old song, in the
middle we have two African songs, one Colombian and another
oldie with the Marx Brothers. On no.13 we have a track sung by
no one less than Pelé, with Sergio Mendes and on 20 a quite bad
Dutch caranaval song by our own Johan Cruyff, you wont believe
your ears. Most songs are Brazillian and about the famous Rio-club
Flamengo or Pelé, get it & spread it…

For those who like to listen to laid back Brazilian music
from the sixties and seventies, I made us this compilation.
Before you start commenting, let me be the first to say;
You’re right, this is not only bossa nova. This comp also
contains some samba, chorinho and MPB for instance. I just
picked a nice cover from the pile of Loronix material, after
all, it was made under the spell of Zecalouro who taught us
so much about this wonderful almost forgotten music.
Consider it another tribute to Loronix and Zeca,
Hope U like..

It must have been somewhere early 2006, a close friend introduced
Loronix to me, the first music-blog I learned about. I was sold right away,
when I found out how it worked blogging took over a part of my life.
Every morning I browsed through a load of blogs and always started
with Loronix. What would Zecalouro have for us today ? Any samba ?
I got totally hooked. When I visited relatives in Rio de Janeiro in februari
2007, I could not resist to cantact Zecalouro. On tuesday februari 27th
we went on a small city trip. I picked him up at his home and we went
to some of the recordshops he used to frequent and had lunch in a ‘Comida
a Kilo’ restaurant. We talked a lot about music and had a wonderful afternoon.
Zecalouro had really infected me with this blog-virus, no serious, he inspired
me so much, in may 2008 I could not keep it anymore, the birth of the
Global Groove was a fact and I still hold Zeca responsible for that..
As many of you know, Loronix is off the air for more then 2 years now.
Untill today nobody knew why and what happened to Zecalouro. I had also
failed to get in contact and did not know what was going on. Last week I
had the idea of making this tribute and gave it another try to reach him.
Due to health matters Zecalouro was forced to stop his once so popular
music-blog. I had a brief contact with him. Fortunately he is doing much
better now, working as a musician as he once did before.
His life, his blog, his decision..
I dedicate this compilation, fully inspired by himself, to Zecalouro and Loronix !
I respect your choice in life Zeca, however, Loronix was of such richness in
Brazillian music, it will be sadly missed till eternity.. que saudade..

It’s purely coincidental this LP also shows a photo of the artist
with a burning cigarette. I was not looking for it, but when I
was ripping it I found out. I must say, it didn’t harm
Carlos Lyra’s voice aswell.
Some two years ago I first got aquainted with the phenomena
of ‘Music Blogs’. It was because a friend pointed me the great
Loronix, the best blog on the web when it concerns Brazilian
music. I got hooked to visiting the Great Zeca Louro’s Loronix
and did not start one day without going there. Zeca, I want to
dedicate this album to you, without you I would not even know
about Carlos Lyra’s existence. Thank you so much for showing me
all that wonderful music, Loronix is not just a music blog,
it is a ‘Bossa Nova Institution’ and my great example !
Check Loronix at our sidebar !
Carlos Lyra is one of the inventors of Bossa Nova, he was one
of the first to record a Bossa Nova album. Several of the songs
he wrote and co-wrote with for instance Vinicius de Moraes
became Bossa Nova standards later. A song like ‘Maria Ninguém’
was interpreted by practically every Brazilian musician.
Enjoy the Bossa Nova of Carlos Lyra.

Summer is really pulling through in the Netherlands.
With temperatures around 30 degrees, we try to do everything a bit
slower then normal. And what type of music has that mellow tropical
slowness ? Ofcourse, Bossa Nova, Brazilians know to ajust their pace
like no other. Sergio Mendes comes in with a smooth Bossa LP.
With the participation of Bud Shank, Sebastiao Neto, Chico Batera,
Rosinha de Valença on guitar and with the sweet voice of Wanda de Sah
this is a great spin.

2 Somewhere in the hills

Today I have a funpost ! In an hour or so, the European ‘Futbol’
(soccer) Championship in Austria and Switzerland is about to start.
For the occasion I thought it would be fun to post some music by
the two greatest soccerplayers of the previous century. ‘Pelé’ and
‘Cruyff’. I’d say Cruyff was a good second if we speak about soccer,
but if we speak about music, I am affraid he is far from that position.
Brazilians have a nature, they’re born with music in their vains. Pelé
comes in with a great Bossa composition, backed by ‘Sergio Mendes’,
what could go wrong ? World, please have mercy on Johan Cruyff
and us Dutch people, we don’t have that sunny way. What we do
have however, is a good sense of humour, Johan Cruyff surprises
us with this 1969 Dutch Carnaval number, once again there
is no comparison.
