Eugene D’Hellemmes e Sua Orquestra – Requebrando (1957)

Polydor LPN 2022

The French trombone and bass player, Eugène D’Hellemmes, whom we had the opportunity to enjoy in April this year, contrary to what FrankOliver would expect, has recorded another Brazil favoured LP (a 10′) for Polydor, one year before the previously presented one.
This release is also arranged by Maestro Waldemiro Lemke.

By the way, I checked on Google Translate for the meaning of the word “Requebrando” and got two different translations, depending on the language this word is translated from:

Translated from Spanish: “Making love to her”
Translated from Portuguese: “Twisting”

The compositions are:

1. A Chuva Caiu (Tom Jobim / Luiz Bonfá) Toada
2. A Festa de Dorinha (Sidney Morais) Samba
3. Nisei (Ângelo Apolônio ”Poly” / Juraci Rago) Baião
4. Gadu Namorando (Alcyr Pires Vermelho / Ladislau P. da Silva) Samba-choro
5. Rio É Amor (Bruno Marnet) Samba
6. Leva Saudade (Castro Perret / Osvaldo Silva) Baião
7. Insensato Coração (Antônio Maria / Paulo Soledade) Samba
8. Elegante (Altamiro Carrilho) Baião 

ELEGANTE

Créditos: Pedro & 300discos

EUGENE D’HELLEMMES IN SOUTH AMERICA by Frank-Oliver: Eugene D’ Hellemmes came to South America during the second world war as a member of the Ray Ventura orchestra. This french orchestra, including the famous singer Henri Salvador, emigrated to South America from France and performed and recorded in Buenos Aires and Rio, often with spanish or portuguese vocals. After the war the orchestra returned to France. Some members stayed in South America. So does Eugene D`Hellemmes.
