Radames Gnattali Em Ritmo de Samba (1958)

Continental LPP 3010

One of the most famous figures in Brazilian music, composer, arranger and piano player Radamés Gnattali was featured in this as well as in the previous parallel reality, but as far as I can remember not with a complete, his only, career album, the nearest to that being the two weeks ago presented Retratos, a joint venture with Jacob do Bandolim.

Now here it is finally: Em Ritmo de Samba from 1958.

Almos everything you wanted to know about Radamés Gnattali but were afraid to ask, you may read on the back cover text.

Here is just one detail from his personal life: While searching for more songs by Nelly Martins I learned that she was married to Radamés Gnattali and that they have recorded an album together which I did not have an opportunity to listen to but in the textual description I read that, instead of singing, Nelly is also playing piano so we have 4 hands on one piano, but not Nelly's sensual vocal, which is from my point of view, as you might have guessed, not a good idea. Anyway, a link to one of Nelly's compactos found in another reality is still working and you still can hear her voice if you have not already done so. Just click HERE.
