You will recognize Wanderly's work instantly as it is the absolute core of the origin of the first generation, shopping mall-lounge music. It'll remind you of early, wacky, tounge n' cheek Woody Allen Films.
The organ music...OH MAN! It's KWWAZY! The syncopation will leave you swirling. Imagine a hopped up Grandma jammin’ away at the roller rink!
It is a fantastic mix of Jazz and brasilian elements with accent on syncopation at a point where entertainment is so high that it has rarely been reached again by western musicians after him. Sadly syncopation has never been explored enough by western musicians, I don't know why. He had syncopation, and an immense musicality. His interpretations of brasilian standards and pop favorities are crazy fun. No cool discography is good without Walter's music. I can't say more than this.
