Early EMI/Odeon stunners from organ genius Walter Wanderley – all of them stunners from his better-known years at Verve! Even at this early date, Wanderley had an amazing way around the keyboard – a sweet jazzy groove that was perfect for the bossa rhythms that helped him get his start – and a great ear for a lean sound on the keys of the Hammond – a much cleaner approach that was being used by American jazzmen at the time – and which undoubtedly went on to influence their style once Wanderley's music started making it up to the US! Most titles here are groovers, but even the mellower moments are great too – with loads of excellent guitar and organ interplay – but in ways that are quite different from a Hammond combo up in the north at the time. The 4CD set features rare albums O Samba E Samba (1961), O Samba E Mais Samba (1962), Walter Wanderley E O Bolero (1962), and Samba No Esquema De Walter Wanderley (1963) – all beautifully remastered, with great sound and original cover art too! (Note that there are some offbeat sound passages – mostly flaws in the original tapes that create occasional distortion at short points – which haven't been corrected by the remastering. But the set is fully licensed and legitimate.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
