Amoroso celebrates the exotic legacy of the Brazilian chorino. Works by such venerated composers as Waldyr Azevedo, Ernesto Nazareth and Pixinguinha evoke the heat of the equatorial sun, the steamy cover of rainforest, and the pulsing rhythm of the ocean. The CD is a luscious and stirring collection of Brazilian chorinos infused with the musical tongues of Africa, South America and the Western Mediterranean.

“lush, romantic and thrilling...captures the magic of Brazil” —Wilson Melo, Reuters, San Paulo

Amoroso features a star-studded cast of musicians:

Peter H. Bloom, flutes, concertizes in the U.S. and abroad, and is featured on more than 40 recordings. He is a veteran with the world-renowned Aardvark Jazz Orchestra (44th season) and has appeared with jazz luminaries Charles Neville, Jaki Byard, Sheila Jordan, Geri Allen, Mark Harvey, and others.   All About Jazz praised his “hip, jazzy flute work,” while Jazz Improv hailed his “exquisite melody,” and Arts Fuse wrote, “His solos on flute and amplified flute are always highlights of a performance.”

Larry Carsman, guitar, has performed blues, calypso, reggae, classical, jazz and swing, from the concert halls of Boston to the nightclubs of Detroit to the pubs and posh hotels of the Caribbean. He was lead guitarist and co-founder of the James Montgomery Blues Band, and has appeared with legend Bonnie Raitt and Boston's famed Bo Winiker Orchestra, among others.

Billy Novick, saxophone & clarinet, has toured North America, Europe and Asia, and has made spotlight appearances at numerous jazz festivals, including the Kool, Newport, Edinburgh, Brecon (Wales), Marsiac (France), and Breda (Netherlands). He has released 17 albums as leader or co-leader, and appears as a sideman on more than 250 recordings. The Washington Post praised his “velvety jazz,” while Downbeat hailed his "sincerity...elegance…a lovely celebration of tunefulness.”

Mimi Rabson, violin, praised for “great chops and an attitude to match” (The Washington Post), has recorded with Itzhak Perlman and performed with the New England Ragtime Ensemble, the Klezmatics, Deborah Henson-Conant, and the Pablo Ablanedo Octet. She has appeared at Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Wolf Trap, the Place des Arts in Montreal, and other venues. She teaches at Berklee College of Music.

Ricardo Monzon, percussion, has performed with the Boston Pops, Aretha Franklin, Mario Frangoulis, Donna Summer, Stanley Clark, Lenny White, Mary Wilson of the Supremes, the Greg Hopkins Big Band, and the Orquesta Sinfonica de Guatemala, to name a few. A sought-after studio musician, Ricardo can be heard on the Grammy nominated “Latin Album” with the Boston Pops. He teaches at Berklee College of Music.

Todd Baker, bass, played for two years with The Artie Shaw Orchestra and led bands on the Carnival Cruise Lines. He has played with Rosemary Clooney, Cab Calloway, The Four Freshman, and The Woody Herman Band, among others.

Grand-Concert 245sq r nsmGrand Concert! Dramatic Concert & Ballroom Music Heard in 19th Century America

D.C. Hall’s New Concert and Quadrille Band

Americas Musicworks CD $14.97

Peter H. Bloom, flute and piccolo; Steven Jackson, clarinet; James H. Johnston, violin; Patrick Jordan, viola; Henry Peyrebrune, double bass; and Kevin M'Dermott, tenor soloist.

In this critically acclaimed recording, D.C. Hall's New Concert and Quadrille Band reprises the repertoire, style, and spirit of the illustrious Hall Brothers' Band that were acclaimed from Maine to Louisiana from the late 1840s through the 1870s. The CD transports the listener to 19th-century America with wide-ranging repertoire that was popular at the time: reductions of operatic and symphonic works, chamber works, dramatic scenas, music for theatrical and popular dance, and music hall favorites. 

Renowned for exquisite musicianship, vivid performances, and superb research, the new Hall’s Band was awarded The American Musicological Society's Noah Greenberg Award in 1990.

Grand Concert! was recorded on the stage at Mechanics Hall, Worcester, Massachusetts, upon the very stage where the original Hall's Brothers' Band concertized. The CD was recorded and edited by legendary award-winning engineer Bud Graham.

“An absolutely first-rate artistic enterprise, irrespective of category” —The Boston Globe

“Clean playing and careful ensemble are the keynote here, and the D.C. Hall Band meets the challenge with precision and spirit.” —Gramophone Magazine

"Mindbendingly wonderful."   —John Heiss, New England Conservatory of Music

“One of a kind and very well recorded.” —The Audio Critic Magazine

    "Pleasingly evocative...as close a glimpse of the musical pleasures accorded Shakespeare's audiences as we are apt to experience."  —Bostonia Magazine

Ensemble Chaconne's superb musicians are Peter H. Bloom (renaissance and baroque flutes), Carol Lewis (viola da gamba), and Olav Chris Henriksen (lute, theorbo and early guitar).
