There is a beautiful musical tradition that originates in the land of Brazil known as Choro or Chorinho that translates roughly to “little cry” or “little lament”. There were indeed cries on Friday night at the music hall on the campus of Anne Arundel Community College, but they were cries of joy and bliss, as guitarists Richard Miller and Jason Ennis present a delightful program of Choro inspired guitar duets as part of the College’s ongoing jazz guitar series. Both musicians are no strangers to the concert stage, Miller having performed the world over with singers such as Lilo Gonzalez and Alaor Macedo and played in venues from the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. to a solo recital in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. New York based guitarist Jason Ennis is a protoge of famed jazz guitarist, Gene Bertoncini, and has performed or recorded with the likes of Tessa Souter, Charles Neville and Joe Morton, to name just a few. These 7 string guitar masters were also joined onstage by Soprano Tammy Tucker , helping to cap off an evening of truly sublime music. Be sure to check out their gorgeous sounds and explore to beauty of Chorinho music. You’ll be pleasantly surprised!Photobucket
