This is an idea I was working on, off & on, over a few months that I composed & recorded, starting with a layered Bossa Nova beat, an upright bass part, a unison then harmonic background vocalese pad arrangement, grand piano, percussion, and a rhythm guitar part (all played on keys), but what I really needed was a REAL Brasilian guitarist! When I met the amazing Ricardo Barros in SaoPaulo, Brazil at a private jam session, I knew we had to connect and there was definitely musical magic! He recorded some takes for my track and voila! An instant classic–at least for my repertoire! 😉
