Comments:  

BrazilOnGuitar says: With the help of the reports below, the recording date can assessed more precisely. [Addition 2021]. Briefly on some compositions: Lotus, swinging in the style of Jacques Loussier, opens this ambitious record. It is one of the most beautiful compositions on 27 Horas and sounds like an hommage to Jacques or the Swingle Singers, but is in fact dedicated to his fast car, a Lotus. The string arrangement of All the things you are has not the lightness of the 1967 version and rather resembles the version from 1959. Three solo pieces form the center of this record, the Spanish Violao, the Moorish O cego aderaldo and the Brazilian A lenda do Abaete, showing that the thirty years old Baden belonged to the master guitarists of that time.

With compositions like Um abraco no codo or Alo, Ernesto he would deal with on later recordings. In 1974 Alo, Ernesto would become Valsa No.1 and be played in studio and on stage. The reflective Viagem and the Double by Bach close the record.

27 Horas de Estudio was for a long time only available as an LP and (without the web) very hard to find outside of Brazil. The long awaited CD-reissue (2003) was carefully remastered and shows the original Elenco cover. We thank Robert G. (Germany) for his translation.
