    Paulo Moura, never again.

    Died today at age 77 Paulo Moura. One of the greatest Brazilian musicians. If you like good music, it's worth giving a listen here.

    wow and wow again...Beautiful music and phrasing. What is the name of that piece? That is some amazing clarinet music. Or is it alto sax? He played so beautifully. Genius! He has to be one of the great all time jazz sax players. What is sad is that I did not know of him or his music for his whole life. I feel sad about that and ignorant. I wish I had appreciated before now. Thanks for sharing the link Oriane.
    Also loved the gorgeous artwork by you Oriane.

    another two beauties:

    Oriane, thanks for bringing this to our attention... so sad and people who loved him and his work have to come to the therms of reality... I too like his playing, those wind instruments, they must have the souls of their own... their music goes so deep down into into listeners souls and into theirs bone marrows ,loved to hear him playing such a classic as La Paloma is.

    Your paintings are as always not just an eyecatcher but a thought provoking. Like them a lot.

    Albert, Alexandra, AT thank you very much.

    Albert the music is "Falando de Amor" (Speaking of Love) by maestro Antonio Carlos Jobim.

    Paulo Moura won a Latin Grammy in 2000 for the best Brazilian roots album and was nominated but did not win in 2004 for best Latin instrumental album.

    In 1962, he played with Sergio Mendes’ group at the historic Bossa Nova night at Carnegie Hall that helped launched the genre’s mass appeal.

    Moura was considered by many critics to be one of Brazil’s greatest instrumentalist.

    Beautiful music and art here Oriane! The melody reminds me of Jobim's "Zingaro" (Chet Baker Version HERE)
