Musidisc DL-1017

Another package from our friend Alfredo Del-Penho with his scans and transfers of several recordings by the legendary Trio Surdina has just arrived.

The first one to be posted out of it is a 10′ LP from 1956 (from my point of view, a very good vintage year).

Yes, your guess is correct: The lady on the front cover was the determining factor for chosing which record to post first.

Trio Surdina at that time was:

Al Quincas: Violino
Nestor Campos: Violão
El Gaúcho: Acordeom

The tracks:

Lado A – MD 243:
01. Mattinata (Leoncavallo)
02. Sal e Pimenta (Nazareno de Brito / Newton Ramalho)
03. Over The Rainbow (Harold Arlen / Edgar Yipsel Harburg)
04. Molambo (Jaime Florence “Meira” / Augusto Mesquita)
