Johnny E A Bossa Ao Vivo

This CD is a perfect complement of Cult Alf , released last year. Both are recorded alive in a small night club in Rio de Janeiro. Here Johnny Alf ( with acoustic trio) plays and sings the greatest hits that made him a cult artist in early 50's, some years before Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Gilberto made Bossa Nova famous around the world.Songs as Rapaz de bem, O que E amar and Ilusao a toa are classics today. So is his masterpiece Eu e a brisa . Alf is also important to have made the fusion between samba and be-bop that made possible the modernization of brazilian tradicional music.Unfortunatelly he has recorded very few ( 11 times in 50 years ! ) which makes this CD a very rare document about his talent as a singer and piano player. --an Amazon reviewer.
