Ray Charles In São Paulo (1970)

'70 LC SãoPaulo NMConcert 1970 SãoPaulo NM

In late November or early December 1970 Ray Charles performed at the Teatro Municipal in São Paulo.  

Vega Magazine reported that “he played some snippets of Corcovado, by Antônio Carlos Jobim, on piano – commenting, in a relaxed way: ‘It’s pleasant music. I like it!'”

TV Tupi was present, and probably aired (parts of?) the show; source here.

Who knows more about any footage surviving from this program?
