Manfredo Fest, 2 albums


From discogs:

Manfredo Fest (May 13, 1936 - October 8, 1999) was a legally blind bossa nova and jazz pianist and keyboardist from Brazil. He was also a famous bandleader. He was born in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, and he died at 63 years old in Tampa Bay, Florida, USA. Spent many years in Minnesota. He was husband of the composer Lili Fest and father of the guitarist Phill Fest.

The 1976 album Dorian Dream is quite lovely from beginning to end with light fusion but interesting compositions altogether, minimal commercial pop pandering.

Check out the electric piano opening to Braziliana No. 1:
