Grande Orquestra Sob a Regencia de Gerson Flinkas – Sua Majestade, O Baile (1960)

Polydor LPNG 4058

Presenting Maestro Gerson Flinkas for the first time on Parallel Realities with two of his career albums.

I have chosen Sua Majestade, O Baile from 1960 as the first for the simple reason that the back cover displays the large list of very prominent members of his Grande Orquestra

Violinos: Irany Pinto, Ciccillo, Bissaggio, Paulo, Noli, Pinheiro, Damião, Marcus, Sporh, Gentil, Julio e Murillo
Sax tenor: Zé Bodega e Sandoval Dias
Sax alto: K-Ximbinho e Jaime Araújo
Sax baritono: Adherbal Moreira
Pistom: Hamilton, Barreto, G. Medeiros e Laerte
Trombone: Ed Maciel, W. Moura, Norato e Manoel Araújo

Vibrafone: Jota Cláudio

As well as the members of the Choir: Severino Filho, Hortência Araújo, Ivone Rebelo, Odaléa Sodré e Aldir Mendes

So are those credited:

Créditos: Pedro & 300discos

FACTS AND GUESSES by Bossanov:
Tito Romero – in reality is special Polydor’s name for João Adelino Leal Brito, AKA Britinho (CBS, Columbia, Odeon, Sinter) / Leal Brito, Al Brito / Pierre Kolmann (Musidisc) and Franca Villa (Sinter). Can the pianoman from another Gerson‘s LP, El Romeu, be Leal Brito too?
Or it is Romeu Fossati (Mocambo)? Who knows?
Vibrafone player Jota Cláudio may be José Cláudio das Neves?

  1. Com o naipe de musicos listado a orquestra não deveria se chamar “grande” mas sim “maxi”. Belissimas orquestração, regencia e repertorio.
    Parabens pela postagem!!! e que venha mais como esta….

  2. Hi, Milan!
    Great Music!
    You're right – Noites de Moscou are penned by Vassily Solovyov-Sedoy, not by Issac Dunayevsky.
    Some words about other musicians. Tito Romero – in reality is special Polydor's name for “João Adelino Leal Brito “, AKA “Britinho” (CBS, Columbia, Odeon, Sinter)/ “Leal Brito, Al Brito / Pierre Kolmann” (Musidisc) and “Franca Villa” (Sinter).Can the pianoman from another Gerson's LP “El Romeu” be Leal Brito too? Or it is Romeu Fossati (Mocambo)? Who knows? Vibrafone player Jota Cláudio may be José Cláudio das Neves?
    All the best. Bossanov

  3. About Vassily Solovyov-Sedoy I found out thanks to one of your previous comments.
    Speaking about Britinho, stay tuned as in a short time Marshall Tito Romero will appear out of the blue, straight into this reality, together with additional facts about him.
