Nosso Tempo

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Choro is a uniquely Brazilian style, popular there in the 1930s, but now, in many ways, lost to history as musical trends march on. There's a strong resemblance to American jazz, although choro is more demanding with melody and asks for more detail in its solos. For several years the New York-based Choro Ensemble has been playing weekly gigs in the Big Apple, honing and perfecting its sound, and Nosso Tempo is the result.
