4.70 2

Lost live material from Baden Powell – recorded in Germany at the start of the 70s, with a depth of feeling that's right up there with his MPS sessions of the time! There's a great sense of "tristeza" that underscores the music – that richer, more personal approach that Powell developed while working on the European scene – taking his music even farther than his Brazilian sides of the 60s! And the recording begins with solo Powell on guitar, but then expands in these beautifully subtle ways – bringing in a bit of voice from Dulce Nunes, bass from Ernesto Goncalves, drums from Helio Schiavo, and percussion from Alfredo Bessa – used sparely, but with a surprising amount of power. Titles include "Tristeza", "Ferro De Passas", "Insonia", "Marcha Escocesa", "Samba Triste", "Aos Pes Da Santa Cruz", and "Manha De Carnaval". Package includes a CD and DVD of the performance! (DVD is NTSC coded, All Region. Packaged in A DVD case.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
