CD Reviews

Special note for the Brazilian costumers
Mariana Cunha Mesquita do Nasciment | Recife, Pernambuco Brazil | 08/15/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The cd is great, and lots of people from Brazil, the home of Jacob do Bandolim, are buying it through internet, because the local industry doesn't pay attention to the artist. So, I am patching here a note from to the Brazilian ones, I am patching here a note (in Portuguese language) from Paulo Eduardo Neves, the creator of the homepage 'Página do Samba e Choro' of the best places to visit if you love Brazilian samba and chorinho. There, he says that both cds (number 1 and 2) are jewels that everybody should get.The man is one authority in samba and choro, so it's a good opinion to follow. --------- "A inexistência da obra do Jacob em CD é uma vergonha nacional. Até hoje, a única edição decente das obras do Jacob foi feita nos EUA. O bandolinista americano David Grisman se apaixonou pela sua música e bancou a edição dos discos. A qualidade da remasterização é impressionante, põe no chinelo tudo o que já se lançou em CD do Jacob por aqui. São dois CDs, o volume 1 e o volume 2" -- Paulo Eduardo Neves, Agenda do Samba e Choro."
Choro music at its best
noventa | Desterro, Brazil | 04/15/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although not as popular as it once was in its native country Brazil, Choro music still lives on thanks to a devoted audience which, fortunately, manages to continually gather listeners from newer generations (like yours truly). These two volumes are a must-have for anyone interested in this style of music in its purest form, or plain lovers of gorgeous instrumental music. Jacob was not only arguably the best mandolinist Brazil has ever had, but also a fierce defender of Choro in its purest form, a great composer and an interpreter and researcher of the Choro repertoire, recording and playing not only standards of the genre, but half-forgotten tunes from the repertoire of Rio's old "chorões" (choro musicians) as well. Showcasing songs by Jacob himself, brazilian choro giant Pixinguinha and Ernesto Nazareth, the two volumes contain all the songs from Jacob's best album, 1966's "Vibrações" (vibrations), which many consider to be the best Choro album ever."
Another Road to the Heart of Brazil
noventa | 05/08/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Choro music is one of the great twentieth century musical families of Brazil (along with samba, tropicalismo, forro, and others). This is some of the very best of it: soaring, imaginative, lyrical lead mandolin playing against a background of rhythmic guitars and percussion. This music has African, Latin, and European echoes and overtones, it is sophisticated and sometimes romantic, and comes in a variety of moods. Jacob Do Bandolim, the mandolinist, is passionate and exact, enormously inventive but respectful of the limits of musical form. Even if you don't think you like the mandolin (I didn't) you should listen to this record: it will make you a believer. If you love mandolin music this is absolute world-class stuff."
