While I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to play this week, I ran across this track by the legendary Walter Wanderley, one of the leading figures in the International Samba revival of the early 1960's.
Here is a track he recorded for the Brazilian Odeon label and issued as a Compact 33 (ep) in 1962. Chora Coracao sounds more like background music for European Spy Thriller than a nod to Samba, but it's a great track and one of many he recorded in his native Brazil that have yet to see the light of day here in the U.S.
Samba for Monday. You could do worse.
