Baden Powell - Minha Historia

Baden Powell is a Brazilian musician with a solid international reputation. A gifted instrumentalist and composer, he bridges the gap between classical artistry and popular warmth and was a key figure in the bossa nova movement. - by Alvaro Neder, AMG

This is a compilation of 14 compositions recorded by Baden Powell between 1966 and 1971. All tracks, except "Berimbau," are entirely instrumental. Most of the songs are Powell's own compositions -- for example, the three brilliant compositions "Apelo," "Deixa," and "Canto de Ossanha." There is also a beautiful version of Luiz Bonfá's famous "Manhã de Carnval" and Sílivio Caldas' classic "Chão de Estrelas." Some tracks have percussion backings, while others are performed solely on guitar. A flute is added on the two tracks written by Pixinguinha: "Lamento" and "Carinhoso." - by Philip Jandovsky, AMG
