Baden Powell - Tempo Feliz (1966)-BACK

I think there is a small and restricted clubs to albums that brings something very different from all others. I don’t know exactly what these albums have to access this small club, but it is easy to identify these albums when you take one for a hearing. Perhaps a matter of feeling, passion, or some kind of magic that happens in the recoding session, leaving a mark on the music. Tempo Feliz was recorded by Baden Powell and Mauricio Einhorn in only two days, 24 and 25 January 1966 and you should believe me that you are in front of a member of this selected club of albums. Let’s see.

This is Baden Powell – Tempo Feliz (1966), for Forma, a repost, now taken from my original Forma first issue, featuring really necessary upgrades on music, including also hi-res cover scans and the FLAC alternative. I cannot make better than Brazil on Guitar opus tab, once again providing us detailed information on Tempo Feliz. Do not miss Brazil-on-guitar, an overwhelming tribute website to one of the greatest Brazilian musicians ever. Tracks include:

brazilonguitarBrazilOnGuitar says: There is the anecdote that Baden Powell was very drunk during the Tempo feliz sessions. It seems believable, because the film shots of Round Midnight prove to which precise playing and musicality he was capable of in such condition. It is said that the rather shy Baden Powell could only be more extrovert by drinking alcohol. This is very regrettable and he payed a high price, recording such an expressive, relaxed album like Tempo feliz.

This can be seen in his commands, his rhythmic finger clicking and humming along to his musical ideas, which reminds of Keith Jarrett and was rather rare for Baden Powell. It is impressive with which tone, coordination and endurance he played in this jam session.

It is the only recording he did with the Brazilian harmonica player Mauricio Einhorn. Even though they play completely different instruments there were no boundaries between Mauricio and Baden, they were listening and responding to each other. It may seem unfortunate that this was their only recording but nothing remained unsaid. The record’s grooves preserve their musical ideas and contain material for the following generations of guitarists and harmonica players. Tempo feliz is one of the best records, that Baden Powell did in the sixties.

We thank Robert G. (Germany) for his translation.

I’m here! This is one of those life altering recordings for me. Once I heard it, it changed my life. For those that are interested, I’ve written about it on the “Brazilian Jazz” page of my site, here:

Hello Bossanovadreamer aka Tom Jobim:

Thanks for the kind words. I see that you’re in one of my favorite countries. A few years ago Mauricio Einhorn and I played a concert in a small town in the Black Forest where the Hohner factory is. We played a harmonica festival where it was me against 300 harmonica players. The highlight of the week was driving through the Forest. It was beautiful!

All the best.
Joe C.

Hello Joe Carter, bossanovadreamer,

Caetano’s medicine is magic. I’m all right.

Joe, I have been upside down several times at Loronix and could not find a link to your mandatory

This is not acceptable and will be addressed with general management.

Good luck with your move.

Cheers, zeca

Tempo Feliz is definitely one of my favourite albums. Guitar and harmonica play together melodies which carry you away in a beautiful and sweet melancholy. A must-have masterpiece.

I was lucky to receive tis album from Mauricio himself when I visited his “Loja de Discos” no Largo do Machado in 1967. I visited him as a representative of the Chilean Group of Harmonica players “Ritmotres” and we exchanged our recordings. I’ve been in the Hohner Harmonica Festival and it is intimidating when you hear such wonderful players, I only can imagine Joe Carter playing his guitar there.

Grazie, amici!
Got a friend proficient in many instruments (seriously: brass, reeds, strings) and a lot of time in his hands, playing blues harp since his early teens and listening to all kinds of music, who won’t believe he can “legitimately” blow it in Brazilian settings…
