About this album I can tell you only that it is a recording by Ivan and his conjunto, recorded at an unknown date.
About Ivan I can not tell you anything, except that his name sounds Russian to me.
About his conjunto I can present only the results of the member count, obtained after hand counting the musicians on the back cover photograph: There are 9 of them or more, if somebody was hiding behind somebody else during the taking of the picture.
About the music itself there is a long, unsigned text on the back cover, which I do not recommend reading because a much clearer impression you will have after hearing these compositions with your own ears than trusting ears of a text writer about who you know nothing except that he was working for Caravelle at an undefined period of time:

ABOUT IVAN by Brazilliance: I suspect that this is Ivanildo José da Silva who released two more albums on Caravelle: Do Coração do Ceará (LP-CAR 33.011) and Duas Faces de Bossa (LP-CAR 33.016, shown on the back cover of this album).
Só Danço Samba and El Saco y La Camisa, the most recent songs in this track list, were both introduced in 1963, thus, this is fairly likely the year of the release. Interestingly, the catalog number Caravelle LP-CAR 33.002 appears also on Surfing Success by the Elevens from 1964.
