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.

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

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 http://www.discosdobrasil.com.br – has a copy. I guess she could not find any info on linear notes, take a look at http://tinyurl.com/gyfqj, 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.

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.
