************
No início de sua carreira, em 1990, a cantora Ithamara Koorax contou com o incentivo e o aval de grandes mestres da MPB. Tom Jobim, Elizeth Cardoso, João Gilberto, Luiz Bonfá e principalmente Baden Powell. Em seu primeiro CD, "Ithamara Koorax Ao Vivo" (vencedor do Prêmio Sharp da Música Brasileira), a faixa de abertura foi uma música de Baden chamada "Carta de Poeta". Logo depois, Ithamara e Baden gravaram juntos, ao lado de Norma Bengell, um especial de TV para a Rede Manchete que fez grande sucesso na época.

Baden veio a falecer em 2000, mas o destino os manteve unidos através de seu filho e herdeiro musical, o também violonista Marcel Powell. Há três anos, Ithamara e Marcel iniciaram uma parceria que já resultou em inúmeros shows memoráveis no chamado "circuito dos editais" (Caixa Cultural, Furnas, CCBB).

O repertório, é uma homenagem às mais belas composições de Baden Powell em parceria com Vinicius de Moraes, muitas delas gravadas por Ithamara como "Canto de Ossanha", "Consolação", "Berimbau", "Bocochê", e o fantástico samba "Deixa", incluído em um dos mais premiados CDs de Ithamara, "O Grande Amor", eleito um dos melhores álbuns de 2010 pela revista DownBeat, a "bíblia do jazz".
