Thumbs up Baden Powell

Hi friends!

I've put my hands on the complete discography of Baden Powell, brazilian, a monster of the guitar (violão, as they say in Brazil). That's 25 albums (28 CDs) in mp3 @ 160Kbps, about 1.45GB before compression. Hereunder there are some biographic data about him:
Quote:
Baden Powell de Aquino was born August 6, 1937 in Varre-e-Sai (translating, Sweep-and-Leave). At the age of seven he started to play classical guitar. At the age of fourteen he got a diploma at the conservatory in Rio. By fifteen he was a professional musician, by twenty he was a famous composer. Important for his musical development was his father Lilo, his teacher Jaime Florence, also the poets Vinicius de Moraes and Paulo Cesar Pinheiro. Baden created the most famous brasilian songs of that period with these poets. Nowadays this songs belong to the classics.

His album "Tristeza On Guitar" was in 1966 an international success.
In 1967 he gave a concert at the "Berliner Jazztage", which was enthusiastically celebrated in Germany. From these days forward the german audience honored and loved him. In 1970 the "Baden Powell Quartett" started its first european and japan tour, which was a big success. Many album releases showed an experimental and improvising musician who knew how to add baroque modulations to his synthesis of samba and jazz music. In these days he made recordings of high musical quality, a fusion of afro-brazilian and european music culture.

In the mid 70's Baden Powell got into a serious health crisis and his public appearances and his recordings became rare. In 1983 he moved with his wife and his two sons to Baden-Baden and he lived some years retired. With his solo performances in europe he was able to resume older successes. Back to Brasil he recorded the album "Rio das Valsas" in 1989, which had a great musical atmosphere and his interpretations became more mature. In addition to this he cared for the musical education of his sons Philippe-Baden and Louis-Marcel.
In May 2000 he published one of his last albums "Lembrancas", which is the legacy of a great master of the brazilian guitar.

He died on September 26, 2000 in Rio de Janeiro.
The music catalog can be found here and one of the songs, A Felicidade (The Happiness) here

In order to avoid a lot of work for nothing, if someone is interested just state it clearly in this thread and I'll prepare the packages (per CD), put them on rapidshare and will publish the links later.

Cheers!

I might be interested if quality is high, i.e. 192kbs or better.

Not familiar with Brazilian music much, but the single was allright.

Hi TeeOneM!

It's a bit hard, because rate varies from 124 to 320 kbs when checking the first title of each CD. I've not ripped the CDs myself so as you'll understand I've not heard them all... yet... So...

I'm going to prepare a double album from 1999 - Vivendo Vinicius ao Vivo (Living Vinicius live). I love that one as I've seen both monsters (of music and poetry - Vinicius, a white guy called himself the "whitest negro in Brazil") in live concerts on TV, both chatting, saying poems and singing them.

As soon as they are ready I'll give you a shout!

Cheers
