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.

ZECA’S LAST POST ON LORONIX by Frank-Oliver
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.

Astor e Sua Orquestra – Um Brasileiro em Roma (1959)

Odeon MOFB 3078

Looks like Astor Silva has either visited Italy in 1959 or he has simply been inspired by Italian music (which was really great at that time) while recording this album accompanied by his orchestra.

If the inspiration was from flashbacks or fantasies you may try to figure out by listening to:

01. Ciribiribin (Pestalozza)
02. Arrivederci Roma (Renato Rascel / Pietro Garinei / Sandro Giovannini)
03. Come Prima (Mario Panzeri / Sandro Taccani / Vincenzo Di Paola)

I have no idea when or why Astor Silva has received the title of Lord from the British Queen, but there it is.

I have never before heard of his backing group called Dixiedrools but here they ar performing on this album from 1959 devoted to Charleston.
