Wanderley was known for his distinctive staccato stuttering style and mastery of the Hammond B-3 organ and on later recordings and during live concerts a L Series Hammond. His later career was blighted by alcoholism and he died in relative obscurity of cancer in 1986 in San Francisco, California, aged 54.


After the trio disbanded (though they were briefly reunited in 1971 for "The Return of the Original" on Canyon Records), Wanderley himself continued to record albums on Verve, A&M/CTI, and GNP Crescendo. During that time, he also made numerous personal appearances, including a concert tour of Mexico.


Wanderley and his trio recorded six albums on the Verve Record label between 1966 and 1968.

Moreover, Walter scored a substantial hit with his recording of the song "Summer Samba," which peaked at #26 on the Billboard pop radio charts in the summer of 1966. Wanderley went on to record a few additional albums and even embarked on occasional concert tours of Mexico as well as often performed live in the San Francisco area.


Walter was encouraged by Tony Bennett to move to America in the mid-1960's.


Walter recorded his first album for the label Odeon in 1959. This album and subsequent albums all sold well in Wanderley's native Brazil.


After moving to Sao Paulo in 1958 at age twenty-fix, Wanderley made a name for himself as an active player in such clubs as Oasis, the Claridge, and the Captain's Bar.


Wanderley was born in Recife, Brazil. Already famous in his native country by the late 1950s, he became an internationally renowned star in the mid-1960s through his collaboration with the singer Astrud Gilberto.
