O Melhor da Bossa (1965)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 20 de março 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Compilations and several artists albums were not on my agenda, they were simply ignored by me for many years. With the help of Loronixers, I could understand the value of these records. The Bossa Nova compilations and VA albums are really fascinating, they provide on a single album a nice panorama of a time, or even a showcase of a given record label. This is the case of this one that Caetano Rodrigues kindly sent to us. Several well-known artists and some that I have been tracking down for months and now I have the chance to hear at least a single track. Thanks Caetano.

This is Varios Artistas - O Melhor da Bossa (1965), for RGE, featuring Maysa, Chico Buarque, Ana Lucia, Bossa Jazz Trio, Cesar Roldao Vieira, Claudia, Elza Laranjeira, Maria Creuza, Vinicius de Moraes, Agostinho dos Santos, Maria Bethania, Manfredo Fest Trio, Wanda and Paulinho Nogueira.Thanks a lot Caetano.

Tracks include:

01 - Nos e o Mar
02 - Retrato em Branco e Preto
03 - Derradeira Primavera
04 - Balanco Zona Sul
05 - Pranto
06 - Eu Sei que Vou Te Amar
07 - Minha Namorada
08 - Estrada do Sol
09 - De Manhã
10 - Reza
11 - Inutil Paisagem
12 - O Pato

Hope uEnjoy!

Só assim pra ouvir 'Pranto' com o Cesar Roldão Vieira e a Claudia.
Cesar era um contumaz participante de Festivais.
Coisas muito boas.

Yes Zeca, this form is not to be ignored! The V.A. & the "Trilha Sonora Original Da Novela" are both rightful LP's, though they are many different artists, they are good LP's on their own.
Please don't miss my Italian Bossa Comps that I posted for you!
V.A. - Bossa Galore - Lounge At Cinevox [Cinevox] Italy
V.A. - Metti Una Bossa A Cena [2000 Schema] Italy
Both are super yummy!

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


Booker Pittman or Pitman (3 March 1909, Fairmount Heights, Maryland, USA - 19 October 1969, São Paulo, Brasil) was the son of Portia Pittman and a grandson of Booker T. Washington. He became an accomplished jazz clarinetist and played with greats like Louis Armstrong and Count Basie in the US and Europe in the 1920s and 30s. He is also an alto and soprano saxophonist. His stepdaughter Eliana Pittman is a Brazilian jazz singer and actress.

He left the US for the first time in 1933, when he went with Lucky Millinder's orchestra to France and stayed there for four years. During that period, he met a Brazilian musician named Romeo Silva, who took him on a tour of Brazil along with other musicians. They sailed to Bahia aboard the Siqueira Campos.
In 1937, Booker moved to Brazil, where he was known by the nickname "Buca", and continued his musical career there, playing at the Urca Casino. He lived in Copacabana and befriended Jorge Guinle and Pixinguinha. He also played in other countries, like Argentina.
In October 1969 he died in his home in the São Paulo quarter of Vila Nova Conceição of laryngeal cancer at the age of 60 . On behest of his wife Ofélia he was transferred to Rio de Janeiro and there laid to rest at the Cemitério São João Batista in the quarter of Botafogo.

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.

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.

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.
