We have a guest recommendation from Mateus Ribeirete, an editor from Curitiba, Brazil.
Today we’re listening to Baden Powell, a Brazilian guitarist. Unclassifiable, Powell may have been the most complete guitarist in Brazilian popular music, without ever pinning himself to an obvious genre or style. First we’re playing À Vontade (1963), a vigorous album filled with memorable melodies. We’re also playing 1966’s Tristeza on Guitar as well as Os Afro-Sambas, the latter a quintessential album in Brazilian music. Powell originally released Os Afro-Sambas, composed with the poet Vinicius de Moraes, in 1966 and then re-recorded it in 1990, the version we’re listening to today.
Have an excellent Wednesday.
