Legend of Bossa Nova.
Never heard about Max Leth before. He was a Danish musician,
Legendary engineer Al Schmitt, recording among other things Surfin’ with the Astronauts passed away on April 26th 2021.
Tom Conlon (has the backing tracks for sale, too!)
By her own admission, she was an unlikely star who waited decades for her chance – and then became a figurehead for fans seeking true soul

For the people who like a wobbly g-string on their guitar to play more expressive I have three versions of the wonderful tune Claire de Lune by turn of the 19th/20th century composer Claude Debussy.
The first is a theremin version with the ultimate degree of pitch modulation.
The second is a violin version with the moderate pitch vibrato that the movement of the left hand permits.
The third and last version is played on harmonica and for me is the winner in the emotion (and sound) department.
So in conclusion: there’s more to an emotional sound than shaky pitch.
Sven Kirsten compiled a magnificent collection of tunes to pull you in.
