This album has a great importance for Loronix and me as well. I’m very happy to make this upgrade using the original Elenco 1969 first issue, including the LP cover scans and my own transfer, including the FLAC files options. 27 Horas de Estudio was also the album that gave me the opportunity to reach for the first time the awesome BrazilOnGuitar, one of the greatest websites I had the chance to visit in my life, which I’m gathering 27 Horas de Estudio information from BrazilOnGuitar Opus tab. Let’s read BOG info.
BrazilOnGuitar says: We think that 27 Horas de Estudio was recorded at the end of 1968 because BP played a very similar arrangement of Iemanja on Le Monde Musical 2. We don’t know of any other record with this arrangement.
Lotus, swinging in the style of Django and Jacques Loussier, opens this ambitious record. It is one of the most beautiful compositions on 27 Horas and sounds like a homage to these musicians, but is in fact dedicated to his fast car, a Lotus. The string arrangement of All the things you are has not the lightness of the 1967 version and rather resembles the version from 1959. Three solo pieces form the center of this record, the Spanish Violao, the Moorish O cego aderaldo and the Brazilian A lenda do Abaete, showing that the thirty years old Baden belonged to the master guitarists of that time.
With compositions like Um abraco no Codo or Alo, Ernesto he would deal with on later recordings. In 1974 Alo, Ernesto would become Valsa No.1 and be played in studio and on stage. The reflective Viagem and the Double by Bach close the record.
27 Horas de Estudio was for a long time only available as an LP and (without the WWW) very hard to find outside of Brazil. The long awaited CD-reissue (2003) was carefully remastered and shows the original Elenco cover.
