Anyone have Joao Erbetta’s “Besame Mucho”

1

I was a member of the forum about 5 years ago when I got my Lime Gold from Shanghai.
I recently had a hard drive crash and lost a lot of music. One of them was Joao's "Besame Mucho", which was one of my favorite tracks. I vowed someday to learn it and haven't got around to it ..YET.

I've checked his site, because I'd gladly BUY the song ...or album it accompanies, but it's not listed, (It was a live track from a club) so if any forum members STILL have this track, PLEASE drop me a msg or email, mbenntwo@gmail.com

Thanks, guys and gals.

"Besame Mucho".....

Now where did I hear that before....

Just sent it to you, Michael. Thanks for checking out my music. You should also check Wes Montgomery's version. In fact, there's a lot of great people playing this cool song. Cheers! J

OMG! Thanks so much. Big fan! Nearly every Sunday morn I would sit down with a coffee, catch up on the news and play a few choice songlists. This song was on 2 of them...you really made my day.

That was really Far Out, Joao!! I have not yet been exposed to your music, but I now intend to! 8-)

Joao, that was a very nice thing for you to do for Michael. Somehow, however, it doesn't surprise me in the least that you did it.

When will you be making it out to Northern California? Would love to catch up with you sometime while on the road.

Is there any place where you can buy this song?

Sunshine: I just uploaded some live tracks at my Soundcloud account. They are for free. Just download them. Besame Mucho is there too:

Hermitt! I hope you enjoy my stuff. Here's my website where you can listen to most (if not all) my records: http://joaoerbetta.com/music/

Ric12: I'm this close (really a tiny line) from spend a lot of time in Norcal (near Palo Alto). That would be cool. I have a gig in Dayton, OH on July the first. I'm trying to book a gig before Dayton in L.A. Let's what happens. I'll let you know and, when I'm in Palo Alto, I'll look for you, my friend!

Push the timing of your visit back to September, Joao, and then you can hang with a bunch of GDP'ers at our Northern California Roundup. :D

Or just stay out here in Northern California for a long time, long enough to be here in mid-September.

Joao , that was a very kind gesture on your part. I just can't get over how giving the members of the GDP are. Nearly everybody goes out of their way to help people or give something to someone they may never meet in person. The GDP is an amazing forum.

Thank you Joao Erbetta and Tim Baxter.

I'm going to go listen to your music now.

Hey Bear, that's why we are all here! I did what I'm suppose to do: Treat well somebody who likes my music! But you are right, GPD is a special place and people here are quite special. This is contagious, in fact. :)

I hope you enjoy my music too!

I was just listening to the Panamericans this weekend with my kids. Joao rules!

Thanks for posting these tunes, Joao! This version of Besame Mucho is fantastic. I really love your albums.

For anyone who enjoyed Setzer Goes Instrumental, you owe it to yourself to check out Joao's L.A. Sessions album. A wonderful album.

I'm new to this forum as of tonight and stumble across this thread... WOW Joao your stuff is great! I downloaded the b sides and my wife and I love it. Going onto my ipod for my commutes to work. Thanks for this.

15

Thank you , Joao for those links! I've been kinda busy lately with a recent move and trying to get settled in, but I just took the time to check out your music.

As soon as I get some spare 'entertainment money', I've got buying one of your albums high on the priority list! Which one would you recommend as a 'must have'?

btw... I also love this version of Besame Mucho!

16

Thanks again, guys. "The L.A Sessions" was a really fun session. I'll have a duo gig on Tuesday and I'll be playing "The dog and the Squirrel", which I don't play for a long time. That's a fun song! I might have another B sides/live mp3 to add up at the Soundcloud soon. I'll let you guys know.

Joao! Dayton? That's not far from home for me. I'll email you to see if our schedules might cross.

(Shameless thread bump for those who haven't discovered Joao's great playing yet.)

Hey Joao, Palo Alto is really close to San Jose. Let me know if/when you're in town.
