Dick Farney & Booker Pittman – Jam Session das Folhas (1961)


Originalmente postado no Loronix em 01 de agosto 2006.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Perhaps today is the day zecalouro is posting to Loronixers his mega-rare releases. Jam Session das Folhas – Dick Farney e Booker Pittman (1961) is very rare vinyl collectors item.

This LP was recorded live in the end of 1960 at the auditorium of a Brazilian newspaper, Folha de Sao Paulo. As zecalouro told before, Dick Farney was an outstanding singer and an awesome pianist who contributed decisively to the renovation of Brazilian popular music, incorporating jazz harmonies and style.

Dick was at the piano on all tracks, accompanied by Heraldo do Monte (guitar), Luiz Chaves (bass), Paulinho (drums) among others. Booker plays sax and sings on some tracks

Interesting in the comments is: when Daniella Thompson asked about the song “Cheese” , “Emanuel wrote ‘The song “Cheese” Was Composed By Pittman in Tribute to Dudu (the Banjo and guitar Player) because he used to eat a lot of Cheese.
Dudu was considered one of the best traditional jazz musicians and Pittman´s closest musician/friend. Nowadays Dudu has a band with his sons, the Banda PAPADÚ”.

This is: Dick Farney & Booker Pittman – Jam Session das Folhas (1961) by RGE.

Are there liner notes? And if so, do they say anything about the cheese song?

zecalouro on Wednesday, 02 August, 2006
Hello Daniella,

zecalouro is honored to see you down here.
This is a nice and very hard to find LP. Maria Luiza Kfoury – from the excellent – has a copy. I guess she could not find any info on linear notes, take a look at, there you will find info about the Chees song, which was composed by Booker and Daniel.
Who knows if on my weekly visit to the records stores in Rio de Janeiro I can gather some info with someone? I will let all friends here and you aware about it.
Enjoy your stay.

I´ve never had suspected of this Farney/Pittman collaboration.

Hey, Brother Loro.

What a great surprise!
O dick farney que eu conhecia era quase inofensivo.
Thanks to show me the real guy.


the jazzman on Saturday, 30 December, 2006
Tracks 1-4 are by Farney and are a delight to hear. Thereafter Pittman and a group of Dixieland wanabees take over and I must say I was not impressed. They take a comic attitude to almost everything and I did not think it worked very well. Pittman must think he is emulating the great Sidney Bechet on soprano but does not come close.

Great for tracks 1-4 and a downer for the rest.

yvesfrancois on Wednesday, 18 July, 2007
I have the album,I love the Booker Pittman tracks (one of my favorite sopranos along Bechet, Emmett Matthews and the still active 94 years old Franz Jackson) it has an unusual guitarist and a fine trumpeter (and love Booker’s vocals as well). I find it funny that my view on this LP is the exact opposite of “jazzman” posted. I bought the LP for Pittman and was very happy about Pittman’s combo, but found the “coctail” jazz of Farney’s combo mundane for my taste (though very professional), viva la difference, I guess Yves Francois

Hi Daniella, The song “Cheese” Was Composed By Pittman in Tribute to Dudu (the Banjo and guitar Player) because he used to eat a lot of Cheese.
Dudu was considered one of the best traditional jazz musicians and Pittman´s closest musician/friend.
Nowadays Dudu has a band with his sons, the Banda PAPADÚ.

Bob Fleming – Bob Fleming Interpreta Boleros Volume 3 (1965)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 17 de Outubro 2008.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, good evening! I’m happy I don’t need to buy a Mac. I’m old for such change. I would like to inform that my computer nightmare has gone to a term today.

Thanks a lot to everybody who wrote me with suggestions, tips and tricks. It seems that everybody is a computer specialist today.
Thanks a lot Matt from the essential Beta Particle for making available resources to a virtual conference call, not needed because Jason guided this computer illiterate parrot to a utility that fixed the problem as magic.

Anyway, now I can focus on something I’m doing that has a strong influence to this post. I’m trying to write an article to approach on a structured manner a fascinating aspect of Brazilian instrumental music in the 60’s, which is the use of nicknames by renowned artists on records, such like
Ed Lincoln recording as Don Pablo de Havana, the last released provided by Jose Ignacio Neto. It is incredible the number of musicians who made such thing. I think the most popular and relevant case is Bob Fleming, a fictional musician created by Nilo Sergio’s Musidisc label that had two artists playing the Bob Fleming role, the legendary Moacyr Silva and Zito Righi.
Let’s see:

This is Bob Fleming – Bob Fleming Interpreta Boleros Volume 3 (1965), for Masterpiece Masters, a Musidisc label. I never found official information on which musician is behind each Bob Fleming release, but this one seems to be a Moacyr Silva session, delivering renditions of Bolero standards with his sax tenor. This cover is scaring at a first sight, but soon you will get used with the naked ladies around the sax.

Tracks include:

01 – Charade (H. Mancini) Just For Tonight (J. Mercer / H. Carmichael)
02 – Sin Motivo (Gabriel Ruiz) Ay de Mi (O. Farrés)
03 – Amor (Gabriel Ruiz / R. L. Mendes) Abrazame Asi (M. Clavel)
04 – Accarezzame (Calvi / Nisa) Arrivederci (U. Bindi / G. Calabrese)
05 – Star Dust (H. Carmichael / M. Parish) Fly Me To The Moon (B. Howard)
06 – Sta Sera Pago Io (Modugno) Amapola (J. M. Lacalle)
07 – Desesperadamente (G. Luis / R. L. Mendes) Angustia (Orlando Brito)
08 – Rose (Michael / H. Salvador) Trop Beau (L. Amade / Gilbert Bécaud)
09 – Acercate Más (O. Farrés) Quizas Quizas Quizas (O. Farrés)
10 – Cuando Calienta El Sol (Carlos Rigual / Mário Rigual) Besame Mucho(Consuelo Velasquez)
11 – Uno Pertutti (T. Remis / A. Testa / Mogol) Io Che Amo Solo Te (Sergio Endrigo)
12 – Nessuno Al Mondo (R. Gioia) Al Di Lá (Mogol / Donida)

Na realidade, este parece ser mais um disco interpretado por Zito Righi, e não Moacyr Silva (está incluído na discografia do Zito Righi, abaixo).

Martoni: Estas informações foram obtidos diretos com o filho do Zito Righi aqui no RF&E, vejam Zito Righi e Sua Orquestra - Sax de Ouro (1964).

Quanto ao artigo que estava sendo escrito pelo Zeca, ele de fato escreveu, com o título “O Jogo dos Pseudônimos”. Pode ser acessado no
Músicos do Brasil.

Hello Zeca, greetings from China!

So I can see you have taken up the theme of pseudonimous recordings after the Don Pablo sessions…certainly a fun game.

One of the comments suggested that Nilo Sergio was behind Os Romanticos de Cuba and that is correct, confirmed to me by Durval Ferreira (himself user of psuedonyms such as ‘Gatuss’ and ‘Devel’!) who also told me that Moacyr Silva was Bob Fleming. Now whether Musidisc ‘owned’ the name Bob Fleming or whether Moacyr was the only Bob Fleming is difficult to say!

Hello, Good Evening! Yesterday was one of the days that I like most at Loronix, all releases were great and different to each other. I did not expect so many people amazed with Quarteto em Cy and Formula 7, mainly Formula 7, a repost. Anyway, as people feedback at comment section, Formula 7 had the participation of renowned musicians that still active today. Let's start the day very strong with a long time request by many Loronixers.

This is Cynara e Cybele - Cynara e Cybele (1968), for Columbia. This was requested since Loronix beginning, probably as the solo album of Cynara and Cybele from Quarteto em Cy and also for the participation of Dory Caymmi as arranger of all tracks, actually, there is an exception, Luiz Eça is in charge of track 07 arrangements, Januaria. Production is in charge of Helcio Milito.

Tracks include:

01 - Pelas Ruas do Recife (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle / Novelli)
02 - Carolina (Chico Buarque)
03 - Rasguei a Minha Fantasia (Lamartine Babo)
04 - Lua Cheia (Chico Buarque / Toquinho)
05 - Fala Meu Amor (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 - Anjo da Noite (Dorival Caymmi / Danilo Caymmi)
07 - Januária (Chico Buarque)
08 - João Ninguém (Noel Rosa)

Good Groove on Friday, 25 May, 2007
Wow! Thx a lot for this one, Zeca!
I would call this album Quarteto em Cy's "stripped to the bone". The interplay between the girls' voices, the velvet orchestration and the smooth percussion makes it one the most beautiful albums of Brazilian music, for me. Really loved it!

Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, good evening! My pick for this Saturday was decided on a different manner. I’m in a rush here, and I did not took this album for a hearing the way I use to do. But you should agree it is not necessary. This album never had a CD reissue and it unknown to many friends.

The little I heard was enough to understand this record is such like a friend’s meeting, very relaxed session. The duo brings to studio renowned friends, such like Maria Bethania, Maria Creuza, Sergio Endrigo and Cyro Monteiro, which is his last record session participation before his passing in the same year.
Let’s see.

This is Toquinho & Vinicius de Moraes – Toquinho / Vinicius & Amigos (1974), for RGE, featuring Vinicius de Moraes compositions performed with special guests. It is easy to identify each performer at this cover artwork, except Chico Buarque, the one in the right, besides Sergio Endrigo. Find the list of performers below and have a nice Sunday. Christmas is very close and if you do not reach Loronix until there, take my Happy Christmas message with you.

Laurindo Almeida and Charlie Byrd – Brazilian Soul (1981)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 18 de julho 2006.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Although zecalouro lives around guitars and basses, it is a false statement to say that zecalouro he is a musician. If you are beginning your career as a musician, take care of records like this Brazilian Soul, with Laurindo Almeida and Charlie Byrd (1981).

Stay away if you don’t want to listen to music that your will never be good enough to reach their level of playing, big issue for zecalouro.

Run to the cashier if you are confident and want to listen to something that will be your reference for many years.

Brazilian Soul is the first release out of 4 between Laurindo Almeida and the legendary Charlie Byrd, making a quartet on this one with Bob Magnusson (bass) and Milt Holland (percussion). There are nice melodies and high quality guitar techniques that should be rewarding for musician and fans.

The set is full of Bossa Nova classics from Jobim and Brazilian classical pieces. The song Don’t Cry for me Argentina closes the set and seems to be out of place, but works fine.

This is Laurindo Almeida and Charlie Byrd – Brazilian Soul (1981) for Concord Picante


1. Carioca (Ernesto Nazareth)
2. Naquele Tempo (Alfredo Vianna)
3. Cochichando (Alfredo Vianna)
4. Luperce (Luperce Miranda)
5. Famoso (Ernesto Nazareth)
6. Choro II
7. Brazilian Soul
8. Stone Flower (Antonio Carlos Jobim)
9. For Jeff (Charlie Byrd)
10. Don't Cry for Me Argentina (from "Evita") (Tim Rice / Andrew Lloyd Webber)

Laurindo Almeida & Ray Turner – Impressões do Brasil (1957)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 16 de maio 2008.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, good evening! I am very happy to update Loronix after four days, which is the largest hiatus since Loronix creation two years ago.

I hope you missed myself and new music such as I did. There were four days, but seems to be four years, in the third night I had a dream I was in the middle of amazing blog posts. Anyway, I will need some adaptation time until getting the old pace, and this is the reason why I’m making this really nice record in the hope you don’t read me, kindly sent and strongly recommended by Jorge Mello. Let’s see.

This is Laurindo Almeida e Ray Turner – Impressoes do Brasil (1957), for Capitol, featuring Laurindo Almeida guitar and Ray Turner piano performing a Brazilian repertoire with selected cuts from Radames Gnattali, Heitor Villa Lobos, Laurindo Almeida and the legendary Garoto. Maestro Radames Gnattali has the whole side A, the only side the unknown Ray Turner plays, while side B features two Laurindo Almeida compositions, one Villa Lobos choro and three Garoto tunes performed by Laurindo, which are the ones that I like most and worth the entire album. Thanks Jorge Mello for this first out of several unknown Laurindo Almeida LPs.

Tracks include:

01 – Allegro – Concertino Nr. 2 para Violao e Piano (Radamés Gnattali)
02 – Adagio – Concertino Nr. 2 para Violao e Piano (Radamés Gnattali)
03 – Presto – Concertino Nr. 2 para Violao e Piano (Radamés Gnattali)
04 – Saudade (Radamés Gnattali)
05 – Choro Triste (Garoto)
06 – Choro Gracioso (Garoto)
07 – Nosso Choro (Garoto)
08 – Serenata (Laurindo Almeida)
09 – Crepúsculo Em Copacabana (Laurindo Almeida)
10 – Gavotta-choro (Villa-Lobos)

My favorite guitarist, whose Brazilliance records I have been “missioning” to all my friends for years!

jorge mello on Friday, 16 May, 2008
“Impressões do Brasil” traz as primeiras gravações comerciais de duas pérolas da produção violonística de Garoto:Gracioso e Nosso Choro. A música Choro Triste(nº1) também conhecida como Tristezas de um violão, fora gravada 6 anos antes pelo próprio autor.
O Concertino nº2 foi dedicado a Garoto e por ele apresentado no Teatro Municipal RJ acompanhado da Orquestra Sinfonica daquele teatro.Aqui ele é apresentado na sua versão reduzida para piano e violão. Serenade, autoria de Laurindo, é dedicada a Garoto.

Just came across a copy of this album today, for a mere dollar. A fine recording by the master guitarist. Thanks for featuring this album or I might have missed it when flipping through the bins.

Fantástico seu site. Adoro os discos de Laurindo Almeida. Tive, e depois perdi, o LP “The Spanish Guitars of Laurindo Almeida” que ganhou um Grammy em 1961. Foi o meu primeiro contacto com um músico brasileiro. Será que o disco está disponível em algum lugar?

billinrio on Saturday, 15 August, 2009
Fantástico, seu blog. Quando adolescente comprei um LP chamado “The Spanish Guitars of Laurindo Almeida”. Adorei. E despois perdí. Soube depois que o disco ganhou um Grammy de 1961. Você sabe, por acaso, onde posso achar um download deste disco? Um abraço.
