Musical Interlude: Pixinguinha and Baden Powell Play “Lamento”

We’ve featured music by Brazilian sax legend and composer Pixinguinha before.  This clip, from a 1969 documentary, offers us a rare glimpse of him playing alongside guitarist Baden Powell.

Fun fact: Baden Powell’s father was a Boy Scout, and a huge fan of scouting’s founder. Hence, his son’s name.
