*** MAY BE BOOTLEG, UNOFFICIAL RELEASE.

Webmaster's Note: This LP was a collaberation between Brazilian singer Astrud Gilberto and Walter Wanderley's Trio. It is the first U.S. LP where vocals appear on a Wanderley album.   

This album also happens to contain what I consider to be the best arrangement of my favorite Brazilian song of all time, "Tristeza" (Goodbye Sadness), as well as my favorite arrangement of "Summer Samba" that starts off in 3/4 time and segues nicely into 4/4. This album is full of wonderful Wanderley arrangements!

Tracks:

Side 1
Side 2
A Certain Smile
Goodbye Sadness (Tristeza)
A Certain Sadness
Call Me
Nega Do Cabelo Duro
Here's That Rainy Day
So Nice (Summer Samba)
Tu Mi Delirio
Voce Ja Foi Bahia
It's a Lovely Day Today
Portuguese Washerwoman


Bonus Tracks on Verve By Request CD Reissue:

The Sadness of After

CD Reissue mentions Joao Gilberto--guitar--is possibly on this album [Claudio Slon confirms that it was Gilberto playing guitar on this album].

[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/Verve and was a U.S. sideman along with other sidemen who participated in some of these same Albums/Verve.]

This is the first Wanderley gatefold LP. It is also the last Verve LP that was made by all his original trio members. And it's my most favorite of the U.S.-made Wanderley Albums/Verve. I still get just as excited when hearing the opening bars of "Cheganša" as I did in 1966!
