Mario Telles - Mario Telles (1962)

This is a great post. Before you ask me, I will anticipate, That's right, Mario Telles, Brazilian singer and composer is the brother of Sylvia Telles.

Mario Telles released this single LP on his entire musician career, a very rare album with arrangements and orchestration by Moacir Santos, Astor Silva (also as arranger) and Baden Powell (guitar and also arrangements). This LP also contains the very first recording of Nana.

This amazing CBS cover shows Mario Telles in front of a Portinari panel at Ministerio da Cultura facilities in Rio de Janeiro. zecalouro does not have much info about this LP and invites you to join him, listen and bring additional information about Mario Telles on comments section.
