Na GafieIra E Assim (1958)

RGE XRLP 5009

Another masterpiece brought to us all thanks to Pedro & 300discos. A samba para dançar album from ’58 featuring trombone player Eugène D’Hellemmes, accompanied by the Orquestra RGE with arrangements by Maestro Waldemiro Lemke and vocal soloists Mara Silva, Paul Moreno and Caco Velho.

As you might have guessed, the most pleasant surprise of this album are the two songs participation of Mara Silva, whose only career LP, Sucessos em Teleco-Teco is, from my point of view, one of the best samba recordings I have ever heard.

Altogether, a great release, consisting of these tracks:

01. Quero Um Samba (Wilson Batista / Waldemar Gomes) Eugène D’Hellemmes & Orquestra RGE
02. Estatutos de Gafieira (Billy Blanco) Raul Moreno
03. Gadu Namorando (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / Ladislau P. da Silva) Eugène D’Hellemmes & Orquestra RGE
04. Pano Legal (Billy Blanco) Mara Silva
05. Samba Maestro (Alcebíades Nogueira) Eugène D’Hellemmes & Orquestra RGE
06. Você Vem Aí (Luis de França / Gil Lima) Caco Velho
07. Música Maestro (Arlindo Marques Júnior / Roberto Roberti) Eugène D’Hellemmes & Orquestra RGE
08. Quem É o Dono do Baile (Cristóvão de Alencar / Alcebíades Nogueira) Raul Moreno
09. Saliente (Altamiro Carrilho / Armando Nunes) Eugène D’Hellemmes & Orquestra RGE
10. Falso Bailarino (Alcebíades Nogueira / Cristóvão de Alencar) Mara Silva

EUGENE D’HELLEMMES by Frank-Oliver:
Eugène D’Hellemmes was a french trombone and bass player who often recorded in the company of Django Reinhardt in the 1930`s and 1940`s. It is a suprise to see him recording in Brazil in 1958.

  1. Eugène D'Hellemmes was a french trombone and bass player who often recorded in the company of Django Reinhardt in the 1930`s and 1940`s. It is a suprise to see him recording in Brazil in 1958.

  2. This is a real surprise–my day job is playing Gypsy Jazz so i knew Eugene as a bassist on Django Reinhardts famous recordings of St Louis Blues and Bouncin' Around–its a mystery as to how he ended up playing great Brazilian style trombone–thanks very much! Stu
