Album Notes
The last you heard from this group it was a "Quartet +1". Victor Mestas came in from Caracas halfway through the recording process. Victor stayed, thus DPQ is now a quintet, and then Elena Camerin Young came here from Italy, by way of NYC.
Look for more by Elena in the near future!

To be exact:
Dexter Payne - clarinet
Dave Willey - accordeon
Victor Mestas Pérez - piano and rhodes
Bill Kopper - 7 string guitar
Raoul Rossiter - drums and percussion
Elena Camerin Young - vocal

For this project, in addition to choro, we include forro and other rhythms. From the liner notes:

Most of these great Brazilian compositions came to my attention in 2014. It was a seminal year for me in many ways. Chance meetings, festivals , music camps and more fomented change that is still evolving.

Vestido Longo (Long dress / Dressed up) by Arismar do Espirito Santo
Theme song of Brazil’s Festival Choro Jazz 2014. From Hermeto to Joao Donato, Arismar has played with everyone. He was honored at that festival for his contribution to Brazilian music. When I hear this melody, the sounds of an incredible 6 days flood my memory.

Ao Mestre (To the maestro) by Alessandro Penezzi
Penezzi brought this classic modern chôro to Colorado Brazil Fest, where we played it with him. Victor arrived here from Venezuela halfway through recording our last CD, Pra Você. Back then, he was the “+1”.

Coisa No. 10 (Thing #10) by Moaçir Santos
2006 in Ipanema at a record store, with Paulo Brandão, who grabbed tMoaçir Santos’ “Ouro Negro”. “Buy this!” My instant favorite CD for years - genius!

Forrozinho (Little forro) by Bill Kopper
A co-conspirator in my pursuit of Brazilian musicality for over 12 years, Bill’s musicality pushes everything to the limit, including forro! Big thanks!

Coração Latino (Latin heart) by Antonio Mello
A favorite from my CD Inspiration, recorded with Antonio and Thiago in Manaus, 1997. The tune always felt like starting from the middle of something. Now I’ve discovered the intro!

Sempre Que Posso (Whenever I can) by Alessandro Pennezi
Another from the modern guitar monster, gentle giant of chôro. Hear his album "Cordas ao Vento".

De Leve (Light touch) by Dominguinhos
Learned from “Spok” (Inaldo Cavalcante de Albuquerque) Recife’s dynamic modern Frevo King.

Trenzinho do Caipira (Little train of the countryside) by Villa Lobos
Elena Camerin lights up the band on a classic theme by a founding father of Brazilian music, propelled by Raoul’s exquisite touch. We will do more with Elena!

Dia Santo (Saint’s day) by Arismar do Espirito Santo
A spark from the twinkle in Arismar’s musical eye, with Dave Willey evoking Hermeto Pascoal. A week at Camp Sambaiba with Arismar was a huge musical download. From his CD "Ropa Na Corda"

Xote de Saudade (“SHOT-chi” of nostalgia) by Dom Salvador
Xote is a dance from Brazil’s cowboy country. Dom is a secret piano giant who has played nightly in NYC for many years, first introduced to me by Gaudencio Thiago de Mello. This song is on one of his great CDs “Folia de Reis”.
