In January, I could no longer resist it and I traveled up the mountain. Everyone knows how abundant water was in How much it rained! I got into the cabin, put on some old trousers, and waited for the serenity nine hours of sleeping without nightmares provide us.
The bad weather and the mud kept everyone at home. But it was nice that when the days seemed a bit clearer, in the early morning, me and my son, still in our pajamas, went out to see the ants work cutting the roses of the garden. But alas! When the sun was just starting to shine, it began raining again and we had to run inside. One night, when I was about to turn the lights off, I heard the motor of a car fighting to climb the entrance ramp.
He told me later, close to the fireplace, that he had used a tractor to push the car. He was exhausted and he rested for two entire days. After that, we started working. Running away from the living room, where the kids —captive because of the rain— were playing, we went into one of the dorm rooms, which provided with wooden walls, had excellent acoustics.
There, away from the city and the telephone, we worked calmly for about ten days. At that time of year, the edge of the roof was full of nests of little birds.
On other occasions, the ladies came in with strong coffee and cookies, and they stayed for a while. When the weather improved and the sun was shining brightly in the sky, we went for a bath at the small cascade and walked a bit by the surrounding area. And then the madness began: studio, copies, musicians. And everything had originated in an ambiance of peace, among little birds! It was January —the dead of summer. Christmas had been sweltering, but now the heat of the first month was driving people out of Rio to the cooler hills and rains of the Brazilian countryside.
Four about ten days, they worked on arrangements, played with the children, poked around the garden, watched the rain, drank coffee with their wives and polished the arrangements. Six of the tunes were by Jobim —and one the only instrumental on this album was by Gilberto. In his individually cool, subtly rhythmic style he conveys a mood of masculine intimacy, a dance-inspiring vitality, for which Brazil, land of the samba and coco, can smile with pride. The result of those days in the mountains is this friendly collaboration, recorded soon after, when the weather cooled off just enough for everyone to go back to the city.

I saw your Walter-Wanderley-Webpage and I am fascinated with how much love and energy you created this detailed, informative and extensive Site.
Congratulations to this superb work! Since many years I adore Walter Wanderley's special music-style and - some months ago - I even gave up my tenor-saxophone-playing in favour of learning the hammond organ.
Unfortunately it is very difficult to get Wanderley's recordings in Germany. I would be very happy [. I think the Wanderley sound with that awesome organ is so addictive. When I first heard him, I worked with an architecture firm as a draftsman in downtown Ogden. The "Call Me" and "Summer Samba" dominated the radio at our office.
That year was Therefore, I'm having lots of memories of that year and of you and your incredible discographies.
I just wanted you to know. First of I want to say how interesting I have found your website. Since first hearing Wanderley's "Summer Samba" and the radio version of "Girl from Ipanema" in the early '60s in my later teens, I have been fascinated by Brazilian musing and anything related to the Samba, and its musicians.
It seems that I was affected by much the same music that "got to" you way back when! I read it while listening to one of my old vinyl records I found, tucked away in my archive cupboard. As I listened to that unmistakable punchy infectious but velvet glove organ sound of his, the memories of came flooding back to me.
I was then a tremendous fan of Organ playing and Walter Wanderley's style and sound attracted me as strongly as that of the Bossa Nova itself which still lifts me today.Check out The Best Of Bossa Nova & Jazz Samba Rhythms by Walter Wanderley on Amazon Music.
