Francisco Tenório Júnior was a Brazilian musician who, despite only recording one disc under his own name, was considered one of the best pianists of his generation. He went missing in mysterious circumstances in Argentina at the time of the Dirty War.

While on tour in Argentina with Toquinho and Vinícius de Moraes in March 1976, Tenório Júnior mentioned he was going out to buy cigarettes, and is thought to have been rounded up and thrown in jail,or murdered. In 1979, Elis Regina mentioned in an interview with the Brazilian newspaper Folha de São Paulo that he had been seen in jail in La Plata.[1]
