Help Yourself To The Brazilliance Of Djalma

Where Is The Love?
Help Yourself To The Brazilliance Of Djalma
Dot Records DLP 25905

From the back cover: The Brazilliance of Djalma Ferreira is epitomized in this, his first Dot recording. American, Italian, Spanish, British, Greek and Brazilian songs, most of them proven hits, were selected for the unique Djalma treatment and achieve a new degree of excitement in this impressive debut.

He organized a musical combination called "The Brazilliance Of Djalma" in Las Vegas and was immediately booked by the Sahara Hotel. Since then he has alternated between the Sahara and other hotels along the famous strip.

Guitarist Laurindo Almedia, according to the back cover, introduced Djalma to Dot producer Tom Mack.

What I think is a pronounced Leslie Speaker sound effect of Ferreira's Hammond(?) organ blended with the Latin vibe makes for a bright and unique 60s light pop approach. Enjoyable all the way through.
