The Brazilian Guitar tradition has a powerful newcomer. But, in spite of his tender 24 years (Louis) Marcel Powell, son of the great Baden Powell, born in Paris, isn’t exactly new in the music business. With his father he recorded twice. “Baden Powell and sons” when he was only 15 and “Afro-Brazilian suite” together with his brother the pianist Phillipe Baden. His first album “Samba Novo” was only released in Japan. “Aperto De Mao” is his fourth record, and it’s the first one he really identifies himself with. It was during his stay in Germany when Marcel decided to develop his own music career and “Aperto De Mao” is after some years the result of this. On his solo album he features compositions from Joao Bosco, Marcel Powell, Johnny Alf, Thelonious Monk/Cootie Williams, Horondino Silva and many more.
In “Aperto de Mao” Marcel Powell wanted to transmit the beauty of music, the feeling and also his ability with the instrument”. No doubt Marcel Powell’s album “Aperto de Mão has those three ingredients and confirms him as a new young Master of Brazilian guitar.
