BrazilOnGuitar says: Baden Powell's "A Vontade" - which means feeling very relaxed - can be seen as the true first and personal album on Elenco, which was recorded in 1963, his second one for Elenco. Finally, he left behind musical conventions and the heavily orchestrated arrangements of the fifties. With Bossa Nova having highest commercial success at that time he still plays his Afro-Sambas and shows his own musical point of view.

Baden Powell plays in his preferred small combo setting, often even without a bass player. The record opens with an instrumental version of the hit Garota de Ipanema which is followed by Baden Powell's Berimbau. Some titles will be recorded only once, others he would record and perform many times. The last song, Samba Triste, comes in a slower solo version, partly sounding like an accompaniment version.

We thank Robert G. for his translation and Mark for his scans of the UK release and the note on the MC.
