A fantastic collection of work from Jacob Do Bandolim – the Brazilian musician who was so great on his instrument, he took its name and added it to his own! The bandolim is the Brazilian equivalent of the mandolin – but Jacob plays here with qualities that are quite far removed from both its European origins, and any American
modes you might hear in the hands of Bill Monroe or Jethro Burns – often very jazzy at times, in a way that often links his playing on the instrument to French gypsy
guitar swing, while also working with tight choro and samba modes – especially the latter once things really get going! The package features 26 classics from Jacob's best years, and also features some never-heard tracks that feature the musician on radio with Pixinguinha and Benedito Lacerda – on titles that include "Odeon", "Noites Cariocas", "Tenebroso", "Flor De Abacate", "Cochinando", "Amapa", "Gostosinho", "Isso E Nosso", "Proezas Do Solon", "A Ginga Do Mane", "Faceira", "Confidencias", and "O Voo Da Mosca".
