Baden Powell "Tristeza on guitar" 1966

 One of the Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell's best recordings, IMHO. A 1966 collaboration with Joachim Berendt. Truly a necessity for anyone into Brazilian music, Powell bridges the gap between technical artistry in classical playing, and popular Bossa nova and afro samba. Amazing record...finally back in print.

  1. Wow I couldn't believe my luck when searching for this album. I was researching Baden Powell for my latest blog when Google search gave me this page. The link still works too.
    Thanks Barberella.
