Hi all,

I stumbled upon a recording of Rosa Passos today, the song is "Morena boca de ouro" on the album "Letra e musica - Ary Barroso"

I cannot find the name of the alto sax player, does anybody know?


Thanks

Nico

Hi Raphyel, thx, unfortunately Ralph Moore is a tenor sax player, also could not find any hits when googling both names

Hi Avan, ha!, thx, it could be.... however there is no info confirming this. I just checked Paquito D'rivera recordings from the same period (1997), no mention of his being part of it. It was my first thought as well, but from what I hear Paquito D'rivera has a more open, projecting and rich tone, closer to Phil Woods. This player here has a tighter embouchure, possibly a smaller mouthpiece opening...still no clue

Hi Dctwells, many thx! I checked the youTube and it sounds very much like the sax who is playing in the original post. Where did you find the credits (tried googling several pages to no avail)?
