Delicado: By Percy Faith

Waldir Azevedo (1923-1980) was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and was a prolific composer of great melodies. One of his compositions was a Brazilian dance tune that America’s orchestra leader and arranger Percy Faith recorded in 1952.  ‘Delicado’ became popular in the UK and around the world that year. It is a romantic and atmospheric recording and would certainly not appeal to the cultural morons of modern Pop and Rock. Perez Prado also recorded a more brassy version. Both are highly recommended!
