BrazilOnGuitar says: There is the anecdote that Baden Powell was very drunk during the Tempo feliz sessions.
It seems believable, because the film shots of Round Midnight prove to which precise playing and musicality he
was capable of in such condition. It is said that the rather shy Baden Powell could only be more extrovert by drinking
alcohol. This is very regrettable and he payed a high price, recording such an expressive, relaxed album like
Tempo feliz. This can be seen in his commands, his rhythmic finger clicking and humming along to his musical
ideas. It is impressive with which tone, coordination and endurance he played in this jam session.
