Sylvio Vianna I heard for the first time on Loronix, almost a decade ago when Zeca posted his Rio A Noite from 1963. All attempts at the time to find some more music by him have been fruitless and led me to the wrong conclusion that Rio A Noite (later re-posted in another reality, by the way) was his only career album.
As the newest package sent by Pedro & 300discos is gradually downloading to my PC, I fished out as first this album by Sylvio from 1958 wrapped in a completely fascinating cover and spiced with a pleasant surprise in the shape of a lady pleasantly singing on several tracks of this masterpiece (especially on Marimba).
At first (as it is an Copacabana release) I was afraid that she might not be credited, but she is, apparently due to the fact that, for a change, Sylvio Vianna has himself written the text on the back cover, and has been gentleman enough to mention her name: Rosângela. although the other members of his conjunto remained anonymous.
Luckily, once again I was proven wrong, this time in my assumption that Rio A Noite is Sylvio's only LP:
As I just found out, Sylvio (or Silvio) has recorded at least 8 career albums.
Whether dancing or not, you will enjoy:

REMARK by Mr Memory:
Quando, eu escuto o tema musical Holiday for Strings (Férias para Cordas), de autoria do pianista e band-leader David Rose, gravada por volta de 1942, com lançamento no 78 rpm Victor 27853, me vem a mente as cenas das comédias dos filmes brasileiros do final dos anos 50. Este LP de Silvio Vianna também traz outro tema que muito me agrada, que é o clássico Caravan, gravado pela big band de Duke Ellington a 14 de Maio de 1937.
