The recording captures two live concerts at Rio's Municipal Theatre in 1987 and 88, and features performances from musicians such as Paulinho da Viola (cavaquinho), Chiquinho (accordeon) and Paulo Moura (clarinet) in a unique ensemble. Choro masterpieces by Pixinguinha and Jacob Bittencourt appear alongside interpretations of classical orchestral composers Villa-Lobos (in an innovative reworking of the 5th Bachiana) and Gnattali (a superb 'Chiquinha Gonzaga'), together with contemporary compositions by Paulinho da Viola himself. The pace varies from slow waltz to fast and furious, but every track demonstrates both individual virtuosity and collective improvisation. This is choro at its finest, by the finest musicians in Brazil. --album description

Quebra-Queixo: Jawbreaker

Rabo de Lagartixa
Quebra-Queixo: Jawbreaker

Rabo de Lagartixa are among Brazil's finest "choro novo" musicians who manage to achieve the impossible: to preserve the great choro instrumental tradition, and to push the envelope forward into the year 2002. The traditional 7-stringed guitar (played fantastically by the great Marcello Gonçalves) and percussion (the renowned Beto Cazes), are joined by acoustic bassist Alexandre Brasil, and the unmistakable sound of Daniela Spielmann on soprano (and alto) sax. The result is joyful, inventive, yet definitely Brazilian. This is a truly great CD.
