    @shakedatthang you should try looking at Luiz Bonfá's work from the 70's, as well as the work of Sebastião Tapajós, both were extremely good guitarrists, and in some way similar to Baden. Take a look at "Coisas" from Moacir Santos too.

    I'm not gonna go on some anti-mainstream spiel, because that's not what this is about. But can anyone turn me in the direction of some less slick bossa nova and something more raw and immediate like Baden Powell's work? I like the sounds of most of the big names in bossa just fine, but it's not the sleazy and slick sound I'm most interested in. Baden Powell is a world of his known to me in my appreciation of bossa and I'm looking for more of it.

    Absolutamente genial. Eu gostaria de ter 1% do talento do mestre apenas, isso bastaria para me tornar feliz! E acho incrível como a arte dele foi tão pouco difundida e divulgada, perto do que realmente merecia. Uma ode ao mestre, que o tempo faça a correção necessária na história.
