Imperial/Odeon IMP 30.025
As far as I can remember, this album by Astor Silva was posted on Loronix but for some mysterious reasons was not included on Órfãos do Loronix.
that means that I can not point to the usual location where Zeca‘s original text might be found.
Anyway, I am sure that the lack of competent information will not spoil your pleasure while listening to:
01. Agora É Cinza (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide” / Armando “Marçal”)
02. A Noite do Meu Bem (Dolores Duran)
03. Copacabana (João de Barro / Alberto Ribeiro)
04. Fita Amarela (Noel Rosa)
05. Oh! Carol (Neil Sedaka / Howard Greenfield)
06. Stardust (Hoagy Carmichael / Mitchell Parish)
07. Este Seu Olhar (Tom Jobim)
08. Feitiço da Vila (Noel Rosa / Vadico)
09. Dindi (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
10. The Diary (Neil Sedaka / Howard Greenfield)
11. Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
12. Laura (David Raksin / Johnny Mercer)
Créditos: Pedro & 300discos
EDIT: I just discovered that Loronix has posted another album with the same lady’s same photograph on the front cover: Walter Wanderley‘s No Embalo do Samba, recorded under the false name Mike Falacao.
Probably, that’s the one I remembered…

This was the last post at Loronix and was a long time seen when you opened the website.
ZECA’S COMPLETE TEXT by Noemia:
Wednesday, September 23, 2009 by Zecalouro:
Hello, good evening! I am very close to finish an important work to Loronix and also a key effort to bring some relief to the financial problems I’m facing this year. I would love to make the announcement now, but I need some final and necessary adjustments. It is only a matter of days, days of hard work by the way. Meanwhile, I would leave you in with a great record of one of the most important Brazilian instrumentalist, Astor Silva, the legendary trombonist and arranger recording with a fake name of Lord Astor. Let’s see. This is Lord Astor e Sua Conjunto – E Danca (1961), for Imperial, the legendary Odeon door sales subsidiary. We know Imperial uses to reissue Odeon albums with another presentation, but so far I could not identify which original Astor Silva release this album belongs. This cover was also used on another Imperial release, Mike Falcao e Seu Conjunto – No Embalo do Samba (1966), which is Walter Wanderley recording with this fake name. Anyway, better stay with the outstanding Astor Silva playing leading a Conjunto — credited by mistake as an orchestra — of unknown musicians.
