At the age of 21, he recorded his first and only album, the instrumental “Embalo”, in 1964.
In this album, Tenorio Jr. was accompanied by Sérgio Barroso (bass), Milton Banana (drums), Rubens Bassini (congas), Celso Brando (acoustic guitar), Neco (electric guitar), Pedro Paulo (trumpet), Maurilio (trumpet), Edson Maciel (trombone), Raul de Souza (trombone), Paulo Moura (alto sax), J.T. 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.
