This album came in the last Caetano Rodrigues contribution, probably the most obscure from this recent package, recently purchased by Caetano on a very good price and condition a couple of weeks ago. If Caetano sent a recently purchased album, it means that something different and unique is waiting for us. Let’s check.

This is Siles e Seu Conjunto – Samba Society (1958), for RGE. If Caetano had this LP when planning his Bossa Nova covers book, I’m sure he would be listed, really wonderful artwork by RGE. In the other hand, the big question is the identification of the main performer, Siles. My searches did not result a single mention. Siles plays accordion and plays good, something different from what we are used to hear from the late 50’s, where instrumental music was mostly based on traditional piano, bass, drums and sax formations. Samba Society is delicious to hear and I invite you to check it out. Tracks include:

01 – Samba Society (Altamir Ruben Penha)
02 – Samba no Perroquet (Djalma Ferreira)
03 – O Relógio da Vovó (Fafá Lemos / Chiquinho do Acordeom / Garoto)
04 – No Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso / Lamartine Babo)
05 – O Orvalho Vem Caindo (Noel Rosa / Kid Pepe)
06 – Rock Around The Clock (Freedman / De Knight)
07 – Moonglow (Lange)
08 – Contraste (Osvaldo Quirino / Sidney Morais)
09 – Guacyra (Hekel Tavares / Juraci Camargo)
10 – Caravan (Duke Ellington)
11 – Cheek To Cheek (Irving Berlin)
12 – Faceira (Ary Barroso)
