Jackson do Pandeiro, along with a few other innovators like Ary Lobo, transformed Luiz Gonzaga's template for baião and forró. There is ample evidence of other acts, especially vocal harmony groups, that took baião to other places in the 1940s and 1950s. Some of these experiments are wonderful and fascinating, most notably 4 Azes e 1 Coringa, but they didn't become the sound of the future. Jackson won the prize. Although not quite as hi-fi, No Quebradinho is not unlike a record from 1974 or 2022. Few artists have ever had such a dramatic impact on the sound of an entire genre.
