I’ve been at work on Cesar Camargo Mariano’s cover of Ary Barroso’s “Na Baixa do Sapateiro,” another Barroso tune, “Pra Machucar Meu Coração,” and Luis Bonfa’s “Manhã de Carnaval” for a while. Not sure why “Infant Eyes” caught my attention, but I’ve been sort of fixated on it since listening to Jovino’s Live Seminar “The Art of Ballad Performance.”
It’s really a horn-oriented tune, but here’s my Spotify playlist of piano versions.(Ok, track 4 focuses on voice and track 7 is a B-3 oriented take.) Enjoy!
