  Loronix: Nelson Cavaquinho - Nelson Cavaquinho (1973)
Nelson Cavaquinho and Cartola are the best Brazilian Samba composers ever, he left more than 600 compositions that are been recorded by several renowned interpreters of Brazilian music, such as: Elis Regina, Elizeth Cardoso, Paulinho da Viola, among many others on an endless list.
In the other hand, Nelson Cavaquinho left only a couple of solo albums and I was very curious to see his great compositions on his own performances, instead of performances by other artists.
Nelson Cavaquinho is not for beginners, his voice is rough and sounds weird, but the beauty of the melodies, lyrics and all the feelings that Nelson puts on his interpretation is really above the average.

Cavaquinho, an incurable Bohemian and friend of the drunken and prostitutes, he lived virtually at humble bar tables.
On one of those occasions, still in 1955, he approached Cavaquinho with his uncompleted samba "Garça." Cavaquinho liked the samba and wrote the bridge; it was the beginning of a long (30 years) and fruitful partnership.
After Cavaquinho's demise, he composed with Alcyr Pires Vermelho, Tito Madi, Monarco, Nelson Sargento, Evaldo Gouveia, and Fagner, and performed in sporadic solo shows, like the one at the Teatro da UERJ in 1996 to commemorate his 75 years, and one in São Paulo's Villagio Café in 2000.
