Today I received and have already enjoyed listening to my copy of Paulo Moura's award-winning cd-issue, 'Pixinguinha', a live-recording of a concert at The Carlos Gomes Theatre in August 1996, released 1998. As the title suggests, the music on the cd is devoted to compositions by Pixinguinha, and what a thrill it is to listen to these up-dated versions of classic choro. Reedplayer Paulo Moura unites with an ensemble of very skilled musicians, re-creating the spirit of Pixinguinha's famous group, Os Oito Batutas: Jorge Simas (violão de 7 cordas), Marcio (cavaquinho), Jorginho (pandeiro), Zé da Velha (trombone), Joel da Nascimento (bandolim) and Jovi & Marcal (percussion).
It's a pleasure to celebrate the 50th entry at this blog recommending this great live-recording by Paulo Moura & Os Batutas. Tracklist inserted below.
