It is inevitable: Jacob do Bandolim passes by now and then; no wonder, as I think his music and compostions are great.
This time I found him on a 1960s LP titled Na Ronda Do Choro. The album contains 12 tunes by Jacob do Bandolim and his conjuncto.
The title of the album, Na Roda do Choro, refers to the traditional social and musical gatherings that belong to the choro tradition. Musicians and fans come together and sit in a ring and make music. The young musicians learn that way how to play the choro music from the eldery and more skilled musicans. This is called a Roda do Choro.
I found such a Roda do Choro, where you can see how choro music used to be played. It is a fragment of the tune Vibracoes, composed by Jacob do Bandolim and played by the Sexteto Foltia Seca. The musicians are sitting in a circle. Enjoy the fragment.
Thanks Jo for pointing me to this interesting album.
