Abel Ferreira - Acariciando (1958)

(1958) Todamérica LPP-TA-311
(1978) RGE 307.4008

First career album of the famous clarinet player Abel Ferreira, recorded 1958 for Todamérica and reissued 1978 by RGE. Covers and labels from both editions are included in this package, so you may chose which one to use to decorate your compact disc jewel case, plus it gives you the opportunity to read both back cover texts about Abel Ferreira and this recording.

Altogether beautiful music, so far probably Abel's best (from my point of view), accented by his daughter Vânia Ferreira's specific voice on three tracks.

Vânia Ferreira can also be heard on another album by Abel Ferreira from 1977 called Abel Ferreira & Filhos, where she is singing Acariciando (which is here presented as an instrumental) and on another track, singing together with Leonardo Bruno.

No idea why Vânia Ferreira has not continued her singing career, but it is a pity.

I hope that you will enjoy these tracks as much as I enjoyed them after opening the newly arrived package sent to us by Pedro & 300discos.
