Gao Gurgel And His Brazilian Orchestra – Samba Session (1949)

SET CODA – 1003

Now another rarity: Piano player, arranger and composer Gao Gurgel performs a session of Brazilian music with his Brazilian Orchestra for, I suppose, North American audience, as it is released as one of the 5 volume series of Latin American albums for Coda, an obscure New York City based recording company.

His premiere on Parallel Realities consists of these compositions:

01. Maxxixe Carioca (Godinho / Gao)
02. Rio (Santiago / Vermelho)
03. Bumble e Boogie Samba (Dennie Brean)
04. Salgueiro (Gao Gurgel)
05. Corcovado (Gao Gurgel)
06. Urca (Gao Gurgel)
07. Penha (Gao Gurgel)
08. Pão de Açúcar (Gao Gurgel)

GAO’S IDENTITY by Edson Mendes: 
This Gao Gurgel is the same Maestro Gaó, already published here in Parallell Realities. The name Gaó is formed by the initials of his name (Odmar Amaral Gurgel), in the inverse way.

DATE OF RELEASE by Alberto:
Relíquia do grande Maestro, pianista e compositor Gaó, um lançamento em LP de 10 Polegadas do ano de 1949, nos USA.
