BrazilOnGuitar says: The half-hour recording in the Teatro Santa Rosa is another proof of his guitar abilities in 1965 and stands for his intense playing style. The sound quality of of his third Elenco recording is not the best and could not be improved significantly with the 2003 cd re-issue. However, BP's guitar playing is so precise and exciting that the sound can be overlooked.

The recordings give the impression of a creative and very vital musician, whose life is completely devoted to music. At this time BP had developed great musicality and an impressive technique. It seems that on Teatro Santa Rosa he wanted to set other standards. In his high tempi there could be missed the depth and relaxation of later years, which is understandable thinking of his playing speed.

On 20 live recordings, five from the sixties, we can study his art of the moment. Teatro Santa Rosa is different with its repertoire and unique recordings. There is the impressive interpretation of the choro with a metronome and the overwhelming Bach prelude. His arrangements of the Afro-Sambas are wild, his Euridice sensitive. His virtuoso arrangement of Samba de uma nota so is very own and tricky. He would as well play it as an encore at the Berlin Jazzfestival in 1967. The record closes with Tempo feliz, his first recording as a singer.

Teatro Santa Rosa was for a long time only available as an LP and (and without the web) hard to find outside of Brazil. The long awaited cd re-issue from 2003 is done convincingly with an unchanged digitised sound and the original Elenco cover. In 1999 was a german re-issue as "Samba de uma nota so" on the Westwind Label.

Addition 13 October 2016: Note that the our copy of the original CD from 2003 has a production error, some Brasilian Pop singer can be heard for three seconds (Track "Tempo Feliz", 0'16 - 0'18). One of BOG's readers has a copy of the 2003 version without this problem so be aware when buying a used CD. We thank Robert G. for his translation and a special medal to Mark from Australia. He discovered the long missed recording date.
