Celso Murilo: organist '60, '61, '62, '64 - Brasil

Celso Murilo 

Celso Murillo Brasilian pianist and organist.
Celso after arriving in Rio from Minas Gerais in 1959 quickly adapted the 'Hammond B3' organ. Celso became involved in the 'Drink Club' scene in Rio and then leader of the 'Conjunto Drink'.

I like Celso's style, he was a younger player with a 60's hip, cool style unlike Djalma Ferreira.
Celso along with Ed Lincoln were into Latin/Cuban music and had many arrangements done as Cha cha cha's, Mambo's, Rumba's, Bolero's, Beguine's and Merengue's, though Brasilian music and rhythms was their thing.
Both Celso and Ed Lincoln used one of the many great Brasilian percussionists during the 1960's, 'Rubens Bassini' who in my opinion was able to play in a most "authentic Cuban" style when it came to bongoes and Cuban derived rhythms.

1960 - Isto É O Drink
Celso Murilo at the piano with 'Conjunto Drink', the house band from the famous 'Drink bar in Rio. Celso Murilo on piano and organ and a really YOUNG 'Wilson Simonal' standing behind him who sings two songs on this LP, one is a killer version of 'Tem Que Balançar'.
