Today’s birthday: Laurindo Almeida

Almeida was a Brazilian guitarist, composer, and arranger. He was one of the pioneers of the bossa nova style. Although he did not write the song ” Manha de Carnaval” (“A day in the life of a fool”), I added this song as background music for this site today partly to honor Brazilian music… and partly because the song is from the classic Brazilian film “Black Orpheus.” (See the two notes below, from today and yesterday, on Orpheus and on vibraphonist Lionel Hampton.)
