    Wonderful!
    I can relate to that bursting into tears moment. That's what happened to me when I heard Elisa play at the Mandolin Symposium years ago. She made a special presentation playing several Jacob waltzes solo. I was standing in the back of the hall next to David Grisman. Midway through the first piece we looked at each other, threw up our hands as if to say "what can you say about this?", then the tears came bigtime..listened intently to the rest of her set, but had trouble seeing anything...
    Bravo Elisa (and Mandolin Cafe)for sharing this story of your rendesvous with Jacob.

    Her Mandolin Monday appearance from long ago is still a real revelation in what a brilliant player she is. And for all things Elisa on the Cafe, the feature interview we did with her in 2017.

    I heard her and her sisters and her dad years ago at a small house concert at a friend’s apartment in New York City. They were all excellent musicians back then even in their teens. Sad about their dad. Lovely family and vibrant music. Love it!

    A wonderful interview, and a very special video. I've had such pleasure listening and seeing the joyous Choro Das 3 family on my social feeds since Dan introduced them to me, and many others, years ago. Profound thanks to all involved.

    I, too, saw her at MandoSymp and was floored by the technical proficiency and emotional depth of Choro Das 3's playing! They were true custodians and extenders of the tradition.
