Tanager maybe in Brazil

Any idea on this bird, seen about a month ago at Jardim do Amazonas in Mato Groso, Brazil? It was very much against the light so possibly the colours that are showing are not real colours - certainly I can't find anything that matches them.

Weird looking! Could it be a poor image of a Stripe-bellied Tanager?

Wait, I think I got it. It looks best for a Guira Tanager

Yes, that seems likely, thanks.

Although out of range, a Rufous-headed Tanager looks like a possible match. Of course, I don't think it is because my guide says that bird is unmistakeable
