Choro is a Brazilian musical style that has been called “tropical Dixieland.” Take some guitars, some light perc, a clarinet add a dash of swing and a hint of samba and you’ve got it. It’s wonderful, fun, and delicious and the clarinet is superb! This NYC-based band has lots of polish and the whole release is a true joy. No vocals.

*1. Upbeat & charming. Great sax/strings blend. Yummy!
2. Relaxed & jazzy samba-sway w/a warm air & light touch.
*3. Bright, upbeat and tripping.
*4. It’s a sunny day with this warm, midtempo tune.
5. Slow & romantic w/delicate strings and a sweet nostalgia.
6. Sweet upbeat and stylish w/bright strings swaying along.
7. Downtempo slow dance with a lush, lyrical quality.
*8. Mid/up w/a fresh sound, good arrangement & solid playing.
9. Downtempo strings, at 1:30 clarinet comes in for a serenade.
*10. Galloping percussion drives this shimmery, summery track.
11. Slow and lovely w/warm interplay of strings/clarinet.
12. Plinky strings, a mid/upbeat wiggle w/a warm, playful sound.
