Their 1962 album 7 de Ouros featured the six instrumentalists Cipó on tenor saxophone, Julinho Barbosa on trumpet, Ed Maciel on trombone, Lauro Miranda on piano, Vidal on bass and Paulo Fernando de Magalhães aka Paulinho on drums plus vocals by José Delphino Filho aka Zézinho and Lenita Bruno on eight of the tracks. The 1964 album Impacto! featured an octet consisting of Cipó on tenor saxophone, Gennaldo on baritone saxophone, K-Ximbinho on alto saxophone, Ed Maciel on trombone, Julinho Barbosa on cornet, José Marinho on piano, Vidal on bass and Papão on drums plus singer Myrzo Barroso on the haunting Meu Pranto.

Francisco Tenório Cerqueira Júnior aka Tenório Jr. (1941-1976) was a pianist and composer who is considered as one of the most important Brazilian instrumentalists. He studied at the National Medical School while starting to play the piano. In his short career he became a most demanded session musician, working on several famous albums such as Édison Machado é Samba Nôvo, A Arte Maior de Leny Andrade, O LP by Os Cobras (the 1964 group of that name) and Desenhos by Victor Assis Brasil.

In 1964, at the age of 23, Tenório Jr. recorded his only solo album, the classic Embalo – Tenório Jr. e Seu Conjunto, with J.T. Meirelles and Héctor Costita on tenor saxophone, Paulo Moura on alto saxophone, Ed Maciel and Raul de Souza on trombone, Pedro Paulo and Maurílio on cornet, Celso Brando and Neco on guitar, Sérgio Barroso and José Antônio Alves on bass, Rubens Bassini on atabaque, Ronnie (Roberto Ronal de Mesquita) and Milton Banana on drums.

In 1976, Tenório Jr. accompanied Vinícius de Moares and Toquinho on a concert tour to Argentina when he disappeared from the hotel in Buenos Aires, leaving a note that he went out to buy something, finishing with the words “I’ll be right back”. As it turned out ten years later, he was kidnapped by the Argentinian secret service to be shot after nine days of torture for being not involved in political activities.
