1. Um a Zero_pc

Inspired by the great composer and soccer announcer Ary Barroso, Um a Zero (the score of a game) from 1946 is one of the most technically demanding and popular choros of all-time. It combines the older etude aspect with jazz influences.

This arrangement incorporates the florid baixarias of Dino Sete Cordas from his landmark 1990 duo recording with the phenomenal guitarist Rafael Rabello (1963-95). Pixinguinha’s original contra-canto (tenor saxophone counterpoint) is given to the six string guitar.
