Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Sylvia Telles

Here is a famous song performed in her Brazilian way by one of Brazil's greatest singers, too early deceased.
Perhaps the most talented Brazilian vocalist during the 1950's and 1960's, Sylvia (or Silvia) Telles preceded the advent of the bossa nova era but quickly became one of its biggest fans, praising with tributes the excellent songwriters Antonio Carlos Jobim and João Gilberto. She debuted in 1955, and covered her first Jobim tune just one year later. She also recorded with Luiz Bonfá, and produced a full LP of Jobim songs, "Amor de Gente Moca". By the early 60's, she had made her first trip to America, recording U.S.A. with Barney Kessel (among others) for Philips. Her husband, producer Aloysio de Oliveira, proved instrumental in her later signing to Odeon and Elenco, two labels where he worked. Telles had just recorded her second tribute to Jobim, 1966's "The Music of Mr. Jobim" (or "Sings the Wonderful Songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim"), when she was tragically killed in a car accident. Her brother (Mario) and sister (Claudia) are also fine singers.
Listen to her beautiful voice and enjoy!

It might as well be spring
