BrazilOnGuitar says: In the liner notes of Images on Guitar could be read that the next record would only
contain instrumental pieces. This project was not realised.
BP recorded his next record with the German Jazz bass player Eberhard Weber and the drummer Joaquim Paes Henriques and can
be seen as an declaration of love to Marcia.
In 1971 six compositions by BP (two solos), five arrangement and a
composition by Eberhard Weber were recorded and released two years later with the title Solitude on Guitar.
Only three weeks after the recordings of Images BP was again recording material for two records.
However, Solitude and Grandezza cannot continue the concept and quality of Images.
The music of Solitude has it's own charm but lacks an unifying concept. The record's title is deceiving, there not
only sad melodies but also happy dances and romantic love songs. After Solitude BP's interest in releasing new
solo pieces would decrease. Possibly this lacking motivation was the reason for the mentioned unrealised solo project.
The composition Bassamba by Eberhard Weber can rather be seen fitting with the Grandezza tracks than with the
love theme of the other Solitude tracks.
The friend of Baden, Edgard Pocas, remembered, that pieces like "Na Gafieira do Vidigal", "Chará", "Solitário",
"Fim de Linha" and "Márcia eu te amo" was written at the time in the studio.
These recordings from 10 - 11 December 1971 were not only a change in BP's music but also the end of his work with
his friend and producer Joachim E. Berendt. A german / english text-insert by J.B. Berendt in the german 1973 edition.
