Hi, it’s a very good choice, i have this entire special DVD and that song is really - like we say in Brasil, a “apart show”.

Anyway, it’s a very nice site and i’m wondering to read the book.

ps: The correct last name of the piano player is CAMARGO.

Tks,

Bg.

Thanks for your note!

People have asked me why I’ve mentioned Elis Regina in several blog posts recently. The worry: That I’ve become somehow overly obsessed with her. A broken record of sorts.

Dunno about personal obsession, but I do know this: Of all the master vocalists who appeared in the last half of the 20th century, Elis Regina is one of the most prodigiously talented, and least appreciated. People who care about great singing—in any style, any language—should know about her.

Happy exploring….
