Anybody checked this book out yet?
Book/2 CD pack. A unique opportunity to sit in with the great Jacob do Bandolim! Includes 24 memorable choros and waltzes as recorded by the influential Brazilian mandolinist on two LPs from the early 1960's - "Chorinhoes e Choroes" and "Primas e Bordoes." The CDs contain two tracks for each tune: one with Jacob on mandolin, followed by a playalong track with the original backing musicians from those 1960's sessions. The mandolin parts for all 24 choros are transcribed in the book in both C and Bb versions. Includes performance notes for each tune, a glossary of melodic variations for 20 of the tunes, more. With text in Portugese and English. Wire-bound. Notation only. 144 pp.
I just ordered it from Elderly- they said it's on back order and should be in by 2/22. I'm stoked to have the play along- when I get together with my choro ensemble, I don't get to run the tunes as many times as I'd like, so this will be great!
I laid the tracks, never rode the train.
