Casanova e Sua Orquestra – Meia-noite Em Manhattan

Sinter SLP-4722

After all those false names encountered so far, of which the most nerving are the crisp sounding US names in the manner of Brad Pit or Tom Cruise, here is finally a name which is above any doubt a real name of a musician:
Too bad that about Casanova (the notorious playboy) there are lots of references on the net, but about Casanova e Sua Orquestra there is as good as nothing.

On this album, recorded at a date unknown to me, Casanova, the band leader,  is playing with these compositions:

01. Top Hat (Irving Berline)
02. Deep Purple (de Rose)
03. Alexander’s Ragtime Band (Irving Berline)
04. La Vie En Rose (Luiguy / Piaf)
05. Tea For Two (Youmans / Caesar)
06. Stardust (H. Carmichael / M. Parish)
07. Body and Soul (Green / Hayman / Sour)
08. Continental (Conrad / Magidson)
09. St Louis Blues (W. C. Handy)
10. September Song (Weilt / Anderson)
11. Easy to Love (Cole Porter)
12. Begin the Beguine (Cole Porter)

OBSERVATION by Brazilliance:

If this Casanova were Ivan Casanova, it would be Walter Wanderley, of course. But no piano, no organ. Instead, a maestro conducting jazz standards (plus a classic by Edith Piaf) thoroughly sounding like from the big band era without the jazz tinge. Great cover! Actually, this is one of at least four albums by this mysterious Casanova.
