(July 25, 2015): Walter Wanderley – Summer Samba

From the 1966 single, Summer Samba / Call Me. This Valle brothers (Marcos and Paulo Sérgio) single off the Rain Forest LP was, no doubt, Wanderley’s biggest hit.  1960s easy listening at its best.  In the mid-1990s, Capitol put out a series of lounge music CDs and included a Billy May cover of this tune under the title “So Nice” on the Cha-Cha De Amor compilation. The Hammond sounds so similar (although not the entire arrangement), that it is hard to believe that it is not Wanderley playing. I assume that the May cover was released in the 1960s, but cannot find the May LP or single from that decade that has the song.
