Sadao Watanabe (渡辺 貞夫 Watanabe Sadao, born February 1, 1933) is a Japanese jazz musician who plays alto saxophone, sopranino saxophone, and flute. He is known for his bossa nova recordings, although his work encompasses many styles with collaborations from musicians all over the world. He has had over ten albums reach the top 50 Billboard charts and two within the top 10. He has also had numerous albums reach number one on the jazz charts.

Great recording from the legendary Sadao Watanabe, recorded in Rio De Janeiro in 1987 with legendary keyboardist Cesar Camargo Mariano and a cast of some the best Brazilian musicians of the time, such as bassist Nico Assumpção and drummer Paulo Braga. The focus of the recording was on the late singer Elis Regina. Great tunes and musicianship, if a bit on the mellow side. I've had this CD for over ten years and still play it a lot. Funny, because this is the only Sadao Watanabe CD I own and have listened to ever since. I think because, this CD epitomizes this artist. Every song, every note is just breath taking. And you will get a special treat in track with Toquinho on vocal and guitar. The master piece is ofcourse "Elis," It is so sad and romantic all at once. I believe the singer, Elis, died of accidental overdose by mixing cocaine and vodka some years back.

M. atanabe is really superb but the pianist and arranger, M. esar Camargo Mariano, in my opinion, the best musician we have here in Brazil, had provided the perfect ambient. This album, originally an analogic LP. was recorded in Brazil. Elis Regina に捧げられた美しいメロディの曲。 これにToquinhoのボーカルが加わるともう泣けてきてしまいます。 世界に誇るナベサダ万歳!
