Choros Que Marcaram Epoca


When I discovered Choro music some years ago it seemed to give me a whole new lease on life. For those not familiar, the Choro is Brazilian Salon Music that spanned several decades, reaching its peak in the 30’s & 40’s. It’s considered to be the precursor of the Bossa Nova that came to worldwide popularity in the late 50’s/early 60’s. This compilation has some great early examples and a nice variety of rarities from the 40’s-50’s. There is an extraordinary track in particular that sounds like Les Paul-definitely worth checking out.
