Paulinho Nogueira - O Fino do Violao Vol. 2 (1980)

Hello, good evening! I want to start today addressing a challenge made by our friend GR at the comment section of the last Paulinho Nogueira post. GR said: "I have a few Nogueira requests - if you can make them happen I will be very very happy and I promise to record a Brazilian song on guitar for you!! (instrumental)". I cannot wait to see GR playing instrumental guitar on video, since Paulinho Nogueira - O Fino do Violao Vol. 2 (1980) is on GR waiting list. Let's see.

This is Paulinho Nogueira - O Fino do Violao Vol. 2 (1980), for Clack/Bandeirantes Discos, featuring Paulinho Nogueira instrumental renditions of music by Garoto, Vinicius de Moraes, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Chico Buarque, Luiz Bonfa, Ernesto Nazareth, Edu Lobo, Villa Lobos, including the acclaimed Bachianinha Nr. 1 (Paulinho Nogueira) with the participation of Eduardo Gudin as special guest. Loronix Preview Center features GR most wanted Paulinho Nogueira rendition on this album, Travessia (Milton Nascimento / Fernando Brant). I like Paulinho Nogueira violao only albums, please check the end of this post for three music videos with Paulinho Nogueira playing Bachianinha Nr. 1 alone and with Toquinho and a wonderful rendition of Air on the G string by J. S. Bach. Tracks include:

03 - Abismo de Rosas (Américo Jacomino "Canhoto" / João do Sul)
04 - Manhã de Carnaval (Antônio Maria / Luis Bonfá)
05 - Odeon (Ernesto Nazareth)

Thank you for this fine recording!
I didn't know it existed.
O Fino do Violao vol 1 is one of my favorite Paulinho recordings. His child must have painted the picture on the cover.
(My copy was completely battered before arriving at a used record shop in Boston MA. :^) If you have vol.1, can I request for you to post it? much thanks.

Hello Zeca!!

Thank you so so so so very very very much for posting this Paulinho Nogueira album O Fino Do Violão - much appreciated!!

It's such a great album, Paulinho is my favorite Brazilian guitarist of all time. The version of Travessia did not match the sheet music I have but it is still a beautiful arrangement. I guess he never played anything the same way twice :-)

I promised to play you a Brazilian piece, enclosed is my mp3 recording of the beautiful valsa Amando Sobre O Mar by Zequinha De Abreu arr. Dilermando Reis, I hope you enjoy it!

When you get a chance please check out my YouTube videos, here are the links:

YouTube - GuitarRomancer plays "Se Ela Perguntar"

YouTube - GuitarRomancer plays "Eterna Saudade"

YouTube - Por Ti Mi Corazon (For You My Heart) by Manuel Ponce

YouTube - GuitarRomancer plays "Cavatina"

Keep posting all this great music here on Loronix, (if you have more Paulinho albums please post them!!) you are doing a great service to people like me discovering this beautiful music from Brazil for the first time.

Take good care
