It should be noted that my own interest in Walter is not from a fad "lounge" movement of the s, but from his original U. Yet his sound on the organ, generated by a crisp, lightweight, staccato attack, can be mistaken for no one else's - and his choice of material showed much good taste, particularly when exploring his countrymen' s songs.

He continued to work at a lower profile after bossa nova went into eclipse in the '70s - and by the time of his death from cancer inhe was virtually a forgotten man.

Sometimes I didn't eat all day long to sing at Por Causa De Você - Isaura Garcia - Documento Inédito in the show. And I signed a little contract with Record where I stayed for 40 years in there.
I think Roberto Carlos is the best singer of Brazil. The best composer too. One of the best, because Chico Buarque de Holanda is wonderful, too.
