Alan Gordon & Hugo Lander - Dois Americanos no Rio (1958)

Hello, good evening! Until this post, Alan Gordon and Hugo Lander were American musicians that recorded a couple of albums with the Brazilian organist Jorge Henrique in the late 50’s. I always had a great curiosity about them and this album brings more clarification about the duo. The started playing together in Europe, early 50’s, and then decided to come to Brazil in 1957. They recorded two albums with Jorge Henrique, being this one the first were they perform as the original duo of piano and drums. Let’s see.

This is Alan Gordon & Hugo Lander – Dois Americanos no Rio (1958), for Radio, featuring Alan Gordon (piano) and Hugo Lander (voice, drums), performing a repertoire of American standards and a single Brazilian song, Foi a Noite (Antonio Carlos Jobim / Newton Mendonca). However, they were not born in the US, Alan Gordon was born in China and Hugo Lander in Romania. I got all this information from Alan Gordon’s son, which is the legendary Brazilian guitarist Lanny Gordin, available at Jornaleco. It is not everyday we gather such info and I invite you all to read Lanny Gordin interview at Jornaleco, where he speak about his father (Alan Gordon) and also about this album. Tracks include:
