Nelson Cavaquinho – Nelson Cavaquinho, RCA Victor 1972

Nelson Cavaquinho, front

Hello Global Groovers around the world, today I am very exited.
I’ve been waiting and searching long time to find this LP,
and finally I did. Nelson Cavaquinho is one of my all time
Samba heroes. When I first heard these songs I was thrilled
with my new done discovery. Do you know that feeling ? It changed
my perception of Samba completely. His way of playing guitar with
those firm strokes, combined with his fragile voice that blasts of
experience. His lyrics are of such beauty, this is pure poetry.
( you’d have to understand Portugese ofcourse, sorry for those
who don’t ). A song like ‘A flor e o espinho’ still gives me
goosebumps. It touches me right in the heart.
Even if you’re not into Samba, LISTEN TO THIS LP !
This is the Blues from Brasil, Muito, mas Muito bom mesmo !
