    Viva Jacob do Bandolim

    ChoroPlaybacks.com, the worldwide reference in professional choro backing tracks of Brazilian instrumental music has announced the release of another eBook featuring the music of Jacob do Bandolim entitled Viva Jacob do Bandolim.

    About this important recording of Jacob's work, ChoroPlaybacks.com founder Daniel Dalarossa told us, "This time we published the work of super talented mandolin player Dudu Maia and group, who recently released the CD Viva Jacob do Bandolim with ten wonderful choros by Jacob do Bandolim, such as "Noites Cariocas," "Diabinho Maluco," "Perolas" and others.

    "We also transcribed the bass line improvisation of legendary Raphael Rabello in 'Chorinho na Praia', based on his historic recording with Deo Rian from 1980," he added. "We eventually plan to print physical books, depending on requests, but for now the initial release is digital."

    The eBook and all scores are available in C, Bb and Eb.

      If you'd like to hear a snippet of the Jacob classic "Noites Cariocas" it's publicly available on our Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/p/CFk0g6jBsq6/

      The editor wasn't 100% sure he would have permission to share the full track but this is 60 seconds, enough to give you the idea how rock solid these cats are. Dudu is rock star in the choro universe, our opinion. Brilliant player.
