Dick Farney & Casé - Jazz After Midnight

Hello, good evening! It is nice to show an album recorded by Dick Farney after a long time. Loronix last Dick Farney release was made on the very beginning of February. This album is really hard to find in its first 1956 issue. This is probably the first Dick Farney album in the 12-inch format, but I’m sure this is the first 12-inch made by Columbia in Brazil. Recorded live at Teatro da Cultura Artistica, Sao Paulo, 11 July, 1956, exactly nineteen years before the passing of George Gershwin. Let’s see.

This is Dick Farney – JAM | Jazz After Midnight (1956), for Columbia, featuring instrumental renditions of George Gershwin music, performed by Dick Farney and top-notch Brazilian Jazz musicians, including the legendary sax player Case, Rubens Barsotti (from Zimbo Trio) and Chou Viana. This is really a JAM session, with no rehearsal by the musicians. Tracks include:


Dick Farney
Rubens Barsotti
Chou Viana

Track List

01 – Strike Up The Band (George Gershwin)
02 – Embraceable You (Ira Gershwin / George Gershwin)
03 – Oh Lady Be Good (George Gershwin)
04 – But Not For Me (Ira Gershwin / George Gershwin)
05 – I Got Rhythm (George Gershwin / Ira Gershwin)
06 – A Foggy Day (Ira Gershwin / George Gershwin)
07 – The Man I Love (Ira Gershwin / George Gershwin)

Casé & Brazilian Jazz Quartet - Coffe and Jazz (In Memorian)

Casé - In Memorian

Casé - In Memorian_3

Hello, good evening! I received this album from our good friend that came to my place to give it to our community. We should thanks cvllos, which was very lucky to find it in a really good condition. We were really excited about this one, Jose Ferreira Godinho Filho, better known as Casé, is one of our favorite musicians, who unfortunately left us so prematurely, recording only a few albums. I’m afraid cvllos will be disappointed as I was a couple of hours ago. In Memoriam is only a reissue of an album already available at Loronix, Brazilian Jazz Quartet – Coffee & Jazz (1958), kindly sent by Caetano Rodrigues one year ago as part of Loronix one year anniversary celebration.

The enthusiasm to present a new Casé release is now replaced only by the upgrade of Brazilian Jazz Quartet. However, if you have the previous release, this is a major upgrade, now including FLAC files. I am keeping the original text, added by specific information about In Memoriam, recorded in 1979 by GTA – Gravacoes Tupi Associadas, released one year before the passing of the great Casé.

Original May 2007 text:

Just came back from Kiko Continentino with Paulinho Guitarra and friends concert with this album on my mind and I could not resist to show Loronixers this truly awesome record sent by Caetano as part of Loronix 1st Year. The release date is uncertain, but I bet all my dollars this album was released in 1958. Meet the Brazilian Jazz Quartet, an obscure jazz quartet from the late 50’s that released two albums that will make you feel instantly crazy to know everything about them. Thanks Caetano, your small package for our on-line party will make people crazy and this is just the second album out of, well; let’s keep it secret until tomorrow.

This is Brazilian Jazz Quartet – Coffee & Jazz (1958), for Columbia, featuring Moacyr Peixoto (piano), Jose Ferreira Godinho Filho “Case” (sax), Rubens Alberto Barsotti “Rubinho” (drums) and Luiz Chaves Oliveira da Paz “Luiz Chaves” (bass). The back cover is also awesome with detailed biography information on each musician. Zimbo Trio fans will be amazed to read Luiz Chaves bio several years before Zimbo Trio. Self-explanatory Jazz for grown-ups made by Brazilian musicians in the late 50’s. I want to make a special request, let’s use comments to feedback this album, especially if you have already the chance to hear it and have additional information to share with us. Thanks once and once again Caetano for this fantastic music and Happy Birthday Loronix! Tracks include:


Moacyr Peixoto
Luiz Chaves

01 – The Lonesome Road
02 – When Your Lover Has Gone
03 – Cop-Out
04 – Black Satin
05 – Makin’ Whoopee
06 – No Moon at All
07 – Old Devil Moon
08 – Don’t Get Around Much Anymore
09 – You’d be so Nice to Come Home To
10 – I will Close my Eyes
11 – Alone
12 – Too Marvelous for Words

Dick Farney Quinteto - JAZZ FESTIVAL Nº 1 (JAM SESSION) (1956)

Dick Farney is an artist that has the preference of many Loronixers. I think everybody had already the chance of taking one of his albums available at Loronix with Dick Farney performing as an instrumentalist or singing. He was very active on recordings, with more than 150 albums on a career that spans decades, starting in the mid 40’s and ending in the late 80’s. Dick Farney recorded 5 albums in the 10-inch format and I got really surprised today when I realize this is the first in the format made available at Loronix. I think this release will make the day of many friends, especially cvllos, which is the greatest Dick Farney fan I have ever seen. Let’s see.

This is Dick Farney e Quinteto – Jazz Festival Nr. 1 | Jam Session (1956), for RGE, recorded live at Teatro de Cultura Artistica, Sao Paulo as part of Primeiro Festival Brasileiro de Jazz, organized by Jazz Club de Sao Paulo. Dick Farney e Quinteto line-up the same musicians available at the acclaimed Jazz After Midnight (1956), featuring, Dick Farney, Case, Rubinho, Choo Viana and Ismael Campiglia, credited as an amateur musician. So far, I could not identify each instrument Ismael Campiglia plays. Jazz Festival Nr. 1 is a short session, limited by the size of the 10-inch format, but is great music with a great performance by the legendary Case on sax. Tracks include:


Dick Farney
Shoo Viana
Ismael Campiglia

Track List

01 – Pennies From Heaven (J. Burke / A. Johnson)
02 – Blues
03 – Out Of Nowhere (D. Heyman / J. Green)

Sadao Watanabe – Sadao Meets Brazilian Friends (1968)

Hello, Good Night! First I would like to inform that Loronix Forum is back. A planned 30 minutes migration was scheduled yesterday, however, things went wrong and Forum was down for the last 20 hours. I’m sorry for this situation. I have received several emails that I could not reply, since I was fully dedicated to bring that server back. It is now up and running.

I think I have to take a nap before meeting friends at Loronix, meanwhile, let’s check this album, made available by Caetano Rodrigues, reposting a previous Loronix release with CD quality. Thanks Caetano.

This is Sadao Watanabe – Sadao Meets Brazilian Friends (1968), for Denon, recorded with the members of the anthological Brazilian Octopus. I will repeat the original post story.

Rodhia, the textile company, as a marketing initiative, assembled Brazilian Octopus. Anyway, the story is so incredible that I decided to pick up an article written by Carlos Calado at allbrazilianmusic.com. Let’s stay with the whole story, as follows:

This is the story of the group, assembled to perform at fashion shows, that gathered legendary musicians like Hermeto Pascoal and Lanny Gordin, made only one obscure album and wrote a chapter in the history of instrumental music in Brazil.

Picture a band that features musicians from schools so different as the multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Pascoal, the post-tropicalist guitar hero Lanny Gordin, bossa nova pianist Cido Bianchi (former Milton Banana Trio), acoustic guitarist Olmir Alemão Stocker and jazz bassist Nilson da Matta. The surprising meeting happened in 1968 and helped writing a little known chapter in the history of instrumental music in Brazil called Brazilian Octopus, whose only release is hunted by disc collectors. “This is undoubtedly the strangest Brazilian group ever”, writes Marcelo Dolabela in his dictionary ABZ do Rock Brasileiro printed on Estrela do Sul, 1987).

“At that time, we didn’t care about the money, we just wanted to play. It was a wonderful experience”, recalls Celso Bianchi, also a maestro and arranger. Brazilian Octopus was lined up in São Paulo in the beginning of 1968 by Lívio Rangan, manager of a textile factory that promoted musical fashion shows to promote their products. “Lívio used to like me a lot. He even claimed he was gonna turn me into the new Sergio Mendes”, tells the musician, appointed by Rangan as the group’s coordinator.

In fact, Brazilian Octopus was born with uncommon space in the market: a contract for a year of work that included three months of rehearsals during which the musicians received salaries. At that time, the band recorded an album with Japanese saxophonist Sadao Watanabe that has never been released in Brazil.

Friends, that’s the story and this is the album we will share today. Brazilian Octopus left a solo LP that is commercially available, a wonderful chance to have it on CD. I suggest you run to the stores before it goes out of print again. Personnel and tracks are just below.

Resala’s Band – Resala’s Band (1969)

Publicado em: Thursday, January 11, 2007 by zecalouro

Warning, don’t let the guy wearing a Tuxedo with the face of Mr. Bean with all these girls around him cheat you, I don’t use to express my personal opinions about the albums, but with this one I want to break this rule, this LP is fantastic. Caetano said the same before giving it to us. If you buy the music by the cover, sometimes you have bad surprise and sometimes you have wonderful ones. I’m happy that this is an above average record.

This is Resala’s Band – Resala’s Band (1969), for RCA Victor. There is one thing that should be understood, Resala has a leader, Turquinho, the legendary drummer, already released with great success here. This is something different, a Jazz band LP lead by a drummer, so you will have a band of top-notch musicians supporting a drummer that plays wide and loud. I said it is not an any given LP, it is a record for grown-ups. Stay with tracks and personnel listing.

Personnel: Resala “Turquinho” (drums), Edgar “Capitão”, Dorival “Buda”, Erotides “Cunhado”and Waldir (pistom), Severino “Bill”, Arlindo, Firmo, Francisco “Paco” and Iran (trombones),José Ferreira “Casé” and Arnaldo “Dinho” (sax alto), Helio Marinho and José Ribamar (sax tenor), Percio “Goiabinha” (sax baritono), Xu Viana and Gabriel (bass), Rubens “Rubão”(percussion), Paulo Lima, Zezinho and Mário Casali (Piano).

01 – Alfie (Burt Bacharach / H. David)
02 – Corrida de Jangada (Edu Lobo / Capinan)
03 – Yesterday (John Lennon / Paul McCartney)
04 – Tem Dó (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – By The Time I Get To Phoenix (J. Webb)
06 – Sá Marina (Antônio Adolfo / Tibério Gaspar)
07 – Resala’s Theme (Carlos Piper)
08 – Triste (Tom Jobim)

Case e Seu Conjunto – Samba Irresistivel (1961)

Publicado em: Friday, November 24, 2006 by zecalouro

We have now a nice Samba Jazz record and the first release at Loronix of the Brazilian Clarinetist Case with the LP Case e Seu Conjunto – Samba Irresistivel (1961), for Bervely, a second issue from the original by Hi-Fi Variety Hi-Fi (1960).

Case is a well-known Brazilian clarinetist, unfortunately, biography and complimentary information about him is almost non-existent. Actually, the information available is contradictory, for instance: Case e Seu Conjunto personnel is Case, Amilton Godoy, Adilson Godói, Denise Dumont, Bill e Magrinho, but some sources says that musicians at this record session were Casé, Heraldo do Monte, Paulo Lima, Xu Vianna, Dirceu and Corisco.

I do not have a indication about the correct personnel listing, but if you take this LP you will see that this is a great album performed by grownups such like Corisco and Heraldo do Monte. Anyway, this is a minor detail taking in consideration the great music. Tracks include:

01 – Se Acaso Você Chegasse (Lupicínio Rodrigues / Felisberto Martins)
02 – Carinho e Amor (Tito Madi)
03 – Palpite Infeliz (Noel Rosa)
04 – Feitio de Oração (Noel Rosa / Vadico)
05 – Idéias Erradas (Ribamar (1) / Dolores Duran)
06 – Menina Moça (Luis Antônio)
07 – Saudades da Bahia (Dorival Caymmi)
08 – Meditação (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
09 – Feitiço da Vila (Noel Rosa / Vadico)
10 – Esse Teu Olhar (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
11 – Tim Tim Por Tim Tim (Portinho / Falcão)
12 – Ensaio de Bossa (Casé)
