The last-ever concert from the legendary Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell – recorded live in Berlin with a sound that not only gets at his wonderfully vivid approach to acoustic guitar, but which also showcases his magnetic power in the spotlight as well! Baden provides a bit of introduction to some songs in Portuguese, with a raspy voice that belies his age – but which is then completely offset by his still-nimble, still-youthful sound on guitar – served up here in modes that run the gamut from his early bossa styles, his Afro-Sambas mode, and some of the even more cerebral sounds he created during his 60s and 70s time overseas. Some of those records were issued by MPS, and the label makes a great place for Baden to serve up his last poetic statement – on titles that include "Samba Do Aviao", "Garota De Ipanema", "Samba Triste", "Abaete", "Naquele Tempo
Choro", "Primieria Vez", "Tocata 147", "Samba Da Bencao", "Berimbau", "Marcha Escocesa Instrumental", and "Variacoes Sobre Asa Branca". DVD features 16 songs, and runs for 104 minutes, with subtitles in English, French, and German.
