Biography

Active: 1960s
Country Of origin: Brazil
Group Members: Durval Ferreira

Os Gatos were one of the best-loved bossa nova groups of the mid-'60s, despite only recording two albums. An all-star conglomeration, the band included leader and guitarist Durval Ferreira, pianist Eumir Deodato, bassist Sergio Barroso, and drummer Wilson das Neves. Deodato's excellent arranging skills helped make Os Gatos' self-titled debut an important album in the history of Brazilian pop. Aquele Som Dos Gatos followed in 1966, and though it was the band's final record, each member continued to make inroads in the jazz/samba scenes of both Brazil and America during the 1960s and '70s (Deodato and Das Neves especially). ~ John Bush~ Rovi
