BrazilOnGuitar says: The year 1966 would be very important for Baden's career. Firstly, he would get to know the jazz expert Joachim-Ernst Behrend, who would produce Tristeza On Guitar and invite him to Germany, where more important contacts for his career would develop. Secondly, he recorded an album of songs, that were the result of an intense work with Vinicius de Moraes: Os Afro-Sambas. These songs were his biggest contribution to Brazilian music history and will always keep alive Baden Powell's name and memory.
