by Rio Con Brio

All-instrumental Brazilian music for mandolin and guitar. Intimate, virtuosic, emotional. Tim Connell has not only delved deeply into Brazilian choro music, he has also created a wonderfully unique voice on the mandolin in the process.

Album Notes
The second album from guitarist Mike Burdette and mandolinist Tim Connell. Featuring classics from the Brazilian choro repertoire and one original choro composed by Tim, For Danilo. Guest artists on several tracks: Brian Rice, pandeiro, Ben Blechman, violin, Allen Matthews and Matt Tinari, auxiliary percussion.

Rio Con Brio captivates and transforms audiences with their intimate performance of the beautiful and esoteric Brazilian repertoire known as choro. Choro was the early 20th Century street music of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Influenced by equal parts Afro-Brazilian rhythms and the contemporary cafe music of Italy, France, Spain and Portugal, choro is both exotic and familiar, evoking in turn the carnival of Rio and the cafes of Paris. Guitarist Mike Burdette and mandolinist Tim Connell exhibit finesse and passion in their playing, while displaying a sincere love of the choro repertoire and connection to their audience.

I can't stop listening to this remarkable CD. Tasteful, graceful improvisations, beautiful arrangements, a distinctive, clean, evocative tone - obvious understanding and respect for this great music - great balance and production quality. I'll definitely be giving "Vignettes" as gifts. From beginning to end, a real tribute to the music and a real treat for the listener.
