BP begins the year 1971 with his 6th and last recording on the Barclay label.
It is an hommage to Garoto and Pixinguinha, except for two compositions of his own.
This record from January is very different from its three antecessors. The first and highly
succesful Quartet formation was splitting up so he chose musicians that had accompanied him on
the two Le Monde Musical recordings. With them he would turn back years, stylistically.
Possibly, Baden was too tired from intensive studio work and last years' European tours to work on new
material and deepen the quest for musical freedom. Maybe that is how this musical hommage was made by
re-arranging existing compositions. Four months later he would again travel to Japan. Until the end
of 1971 he would have recorded with new energy and new compositions six more records.
Mint copies of the French first pressing (80.431 U) are hard to find. Most pressings as of 1972 do not contain the liner notes by Jacques Lubin.
Unfortunately, there was not payed much attention to the record's title, so it got almost lost among the Barclay compilations that flooded the market.
Baden Powell interpreta [...] would have made more sense. Somebody tried to distinguish the record naming it "Carinhoso", but thus only deepening
the chaos, as we think. The record was and remained unknown under this title. In our discography we prefer the title Baden Powell (1971). Some
tracks of the recordings got never released elsewhere. We thank Robert G. for his translation.
* "Furinha" is the nick name of the brazilian composer Demerval Fonseca Neto.
