At the age of 21, he recorded his first and only album, the instrumental “Embalo”, in 1964.

Meirelles (tenor sax) and Hector Costita (tenor sax). In 1976, after a concert in Buenos Aires (Argentina), where he accompanied Vinicius de Moraes and Toquinho, Tenorio Jr. mysteriously disappeared.

He had left a note under the door of Vinicius’ room at the Normandie Hotel, saying “I’m going out to buy cigarettes and medicine. Will be back soon”. But he never came back. He had been arrested by the Argentinian military dictatorship police, then tortured and shot in the head.
