Interprete Nao Identificado - As Melhores Mulheres (1957)

Odeon MOCB 3006

Now a mystery that traces back to the middle of the previous century and still puzzles the police as well as the audience: A para dançar album dedicated to ladies of various names, sung by singer or singers unidentified...
All that is known is that the arrangements are by Tom Jobim and Orlando Silveira.

If you know more about those who committed the vocals, you are strongly advised to forward your knowledge to the nearest police station.

If you don't have any indices who the mysterious singer / singers might be, just relax, enjoy and / or dance to:

This "unknown singer" is Aloysio de Oliveira, which was the leader of the "Bando da Lua" group (that accompanied Carmen Miranda in USA) and the owner of Elenco label, specialized in Bossa Nova records.
At the time of the release of this LP Aloysio was the director of Odeon - maybe this explains why he is not identified as the singer (in this and other records).
