Paulinho Nogueira


Paulinho Nogueira (1929-2003) was a virtuosic musician who adapted a Brazilian feel to sophisticated acoustic guitar (violão) playing. He is distinctive for not having been influenced by jazz, as most popular Brazilian virtuosos have been. He recorded 27 solo albums and toured throughout the world, playing his violão for 50 years.
An extensive biography of Paulinho Nogueira to be reached here

The shown cd, 'Antologia do violão'(Mercury,582698-2) released 1996, is a highly recommended reissue of a LP recording from 1976 showing off the virtuosic skills of Paulinho Nogueira, tracklist inserted below:
