Gil's singing to the Warner Brothers group of labels in 1977 marked a new phase in his music, in which he mixed samba with hefty doses of jazz-fusion and floor filling boogie.
Nightgale was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Sergio Mendes. 
The line up, mainly composed of US-based Brazillian musicians, also included such American crossover luminaries as keyboardist Don Grusin and bassist Nathan Watts, Break-break out tracks included 'Maracatu Atomico' -  a big hit in New York discos, and at late period Wigan Casino - which Gil had previously recorded with a lighter feel for a 1974 single. 
Record and cover in excellent condition. Couple minor hairlines on disc but nothing noticeable.
