Choro

Choro

Choro is one of the many wonderful styles of music to come out of Brazil, and “Choro” by Amilton Godoy is a great example.  Traditionally played on winds and strings, choro translates very well to piano, as illustrated by Amilton and other luminaries.  The original tune is composed as a theme and variations, but on her 1987 album Illusions Eliane Elias turns it into the simpler head/solo jazz form, as I have done here.
