Classical guitarist from Brazil (born 2 September 1917 in Prainha (now called Miracatu), São Paulo, Brazil - died: 26 July 1995 in Van Nuys, California, USA).

Considered a master of the instrument, he could command many styles, most regularly those from his native Brazil.

Not widely known, but featured in a 1964 episode of British BBC TV program "Jazz 625" with [a=Modern Jazz Quartet] —including [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/John+Lewis+(2)]John Lewis[/url], [a=Percy Heath], [a=Connie Kay], & especially vibraphonist [a=Milt Jackson]; covering many tracks and periods in a modern jazz style, including a cover of [a=Johann Sebastian Bach] and version of track "Swing Low Sweet Chariot"— thus leading to joint album titled "Collaboration".
