Secondo Vez – Mike Marshall & Choro Famoso
Review From Amazon
Choro (or its diminutive chorhino), oddly meaning crying (perhaps for tears of joy or the hint of Afro-Brazilian phrasing), is an a Brazilian music style and instrumental combination long in history and far away from lamentation; rather, it is cheerful, typically fast, and intricate, a parallel of America’s ragtime, that started as trios and expanded to larger ensembles. It a musical form that has never died and presently it is an ascendancy once again in Brazil and around the world. Mandolinist Mike Marshall and Choro Famoso (Andy Connell on clarinet and soprano saxophone; Colin Walker playing the 7-string guitar [violão]; and Brain Rice tapping the pandeiro tambourine and other percussion) revisit the choro with historical examples from its noted composers.
