This vintage live album from Brazilian-born guitar player Baden Powell was recorded at the Philharmonie in Berlin in November 1967. Powell and his trio members are joined by guitarists Buddy Guy, Barney Kessel, Elmer Snowden and Jim Hall on these performances of Jazz and Brazilian standards.

For almost half a century, the Brazilian born guitar player Baden Powell has been one of the key musicians among his country’s jazz scene. However, Powell’s work demonstrates a mastery of many classical guitar styles, from the South American tradition of flamenco to interpretations of the composer Johann Sebastian Bach. Nevertheless, on the whole Powell built his reputation as an innovator of bossa nova or the marriage of Brazilian sambas and jazz, often aided by the poet and lyricist Vinicius de Moraes. Although his popularity in the United States has never truly expanded beyond jazz and guitar aficionados, Powell’s name has been virtually a household word in Europe from the early 1960s, when he relocated to that continent for several decades.
