Come to think of it, your explanation is also a possibility. Of the two taxes, only the income tax is still charged today, as we no longer have olden day cable cars in Brazil. But of course, Nazareth had no way of knowing this fact in his lifetime, so I guess unless someone has some first-hand information of which tax he was referring to, we will never know.

Cheers

Marcelo

A rather inconsequential, but irresistable, piece. Your performance is wonderful as always. I don't think anybody could do a better service to Nazareth. It is good that you take ample time for each piece and make it into something special and unique. So, hor many more to go ?

Hello Chris,
Thanks for the comments. If I record 1 piece per week, there are still 3.17 years to go! But since I'm concentrating on the rarest ones for now, I could say that there are about 50 more that can be classified as "rare". Some of these have never been recorded and simply aren't played (so I think it's a cool privilege to be able to listen to a Nazareth for the first time played by oneself). Thanks for hosting the recordings in your fantastic site.

Cheers,
Alexandre

It's not my site ! I just work here. These thanks should go to Robert, and partly to the two other guys who were involved in it at the beginning, but have long since left.

In that case, my most sincere thanks and congratulations to Robert for creating/keeping such an extraordinary site.

Hello everyone,
Today I recorded the 48th rare Nazareth. It's a Brazilian tango never before recorded, which, differently from the others, has a noun as a title, instead of an adjective: "Pipoca", which is plainly translated as "Popcorn'


Best wishes and Merry Christmas,
Alexandre

I eat popcorn often, but I don't think I have ever heard a piano piece about popcorn. It's cute!
Nice playing as usual, Alexandre. This is up. And Merry Christmas to you too!

Hello everyone,
Today I recorded a fairly unusual Nazareth piece. It's one of his 4 foxtrots, and like the others it has a title in English: Delightfulness (with the Brazilian translation to "Delícia"). I found it very challenging to come up with a "musical" interpretation of it. It has never been recorded commercially. Hope you like it.

Cheers,
Alexandre

This is up, Alexandre. I used the Brazilian title since all or most of your other recordings are like this. Is that ok? And although this one is not one of my favorites, I trust your interpretation.

Hi Monica,
Thanks for the quick and kind reply. Actually if you can display it as "Delightfulness" would be better, as it is its original title ("Delícia" comes in parenthesis after). Three of his four foxtrots had titles in English: Delightfulness, If I'm Not Mistaken and Time is Money.

Best wishes,
Alexandre
