Brazilian guitarist and composer Baden Powell successfully radicalized and revolutionized Brazilian music when Baden Powell A Vontade was first released in 1964. Powell and his songwriting partner, the celebrated Brazilian poet and diplomat Vinicius de Moraes launched with this album a new style known as Afro-Bossa, which connected Bossa Nova, Jazz and the heavyweight Afro-Brazilian rhythms of north-east Brazil to stunning effect.After succeeding in launching the bossa nova movement with his fellow composer Tom Jobim and singer Joao Gilberto, the poet and diplomat, Vinicius de Moraes, this time in partnership with the genius young guitarist Powell, looked deep into Afro-Brazilian culture for his inspiration. This resulted in a set of classic new songs such as Berimbau, Candombl‚ and Consolo‡ao all of which featured on the album Baden Powell a Vontade for the first time. SoulJazz Records.
