Dick Farney & Claudette Soares - Tudo Isto e Amor (1976)

It is disappointing when you do not give value to something based on personal criterion and mannerisms or taking the others opinion and the truth. That's exactly what happened with the first collaboration between Dick Farney and Claudette Soares, Tudo Isto e Amor, Volume One. I thought Volume Two - made available a couple of weeks ago at Loronix - was the best album and I'm shamed to realize this week that Volume One is several times better than the previous one. Volume one is really nice and I decided to show it today to Loronixers, perhaps I feel better on making it.

This is Dick Farney & Claudette Soares - Tudo Isto e Amor (1976), for Odeon. Better repertoire, beautiful arrangements and breathtaking performances in duo or solo by Dick Farney and Claudette Soares. I have been reading today several reviews and this album is highly recommended, no exception. Dick Farney makes a fascinating rendition of Tenderly (Lawrence / Gross), made available bellow as a teaser showing Farney interpretations on top of images of Rio de Janeiro at the beginning of the last century. Tracks include:

01 - O Que É Amar (Johnny Alf)
02 - Minha Namorada (Carlos Lyra / Vinicius de Moraes)
03 - Este Seu Olhar (Tom Jobim)
04 - De Você Eu Gosto (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
05 - É Preciso Dizer Adeus (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
06 - Castigo (Dolores Duran)
07 - Tudo Isto É Amor (Laura Maria)
08 - Fotografia (Tom Jobim)
09 - Tenderly (Lawrence / Gross)
10 - O Nosso Olhar (Sergio Ricardo)
11 - Somos Dois (Armando Cavalcanti / Klécius Caldas / Luis Antônio)

Zeca, para os viciados em Dick Farney é NECESSARIO ter o juizo de alguem nao envolvido "emocionalmente", como vc! Isso acura minhas percepçoes sobre as obras! Mais uma vez, obrigado! Como perguntar nao ofende...será que o Caetano nao teria:
1-Dick Farney no Waldorf (1960)
2-DF on Broadway(1955),
3-DF Trio (1956),
4-Um piano ao cair da tarde II
É pra alimentar a gula musical...farnesiana...

Pois é, e pouca gente sabe que o Dick Farney foi o primeiro cantor a gravar esse "standard" norte-americano - TENDERLY, conforme a sua biografia em inglês: "He was the first to record the American standard". Infelizmente é o Brasil.

Um grande abraço a todos,

Cesar Saldanha

Hello Red,

This is not a compilation, Dick Farney recorded this one for this album. If I'm not wrong...

I will check my gmail.
