From the recording Diálogos Duo/Choro Tributes
This AABBACCA samba-choro "Sly" is dedicated to the legendary mandolinist Jacob do Bandolim (1918-69). His catchy compositions and all-star group Época de Ouro in the 1960's was the preeminent representative of the music. The tonal scheme of the three thematic sections is half-traditional (Bbma-Dmi or I-III) but the C section is in G major (VIma). This sets up a final A section modulated to C major, a practice rarely used in Choro composition.
