[Webmaster's Note: Although Bobby Rosengarden is said to be pictured on this album, he was not a member of the Walter Wanderley Trio as has been incorrectly attributed to him by other sources. The Trio members were Walter Wanderley, Claudio Slon and Jose Marino, only. Bobby always played percussion on these Trio albums and was a U.S. sideman along with other sidemen who participated in some of these same albums.]
