Jacob do Bandolim (Mandolim Jacob) was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1918. He  became one of the best-known choristas in his relatively short life (he died in 1969). He composed over 100 choros in his lifetime, and he recorded many more.

If you're a musician playing Brazilian choro, then you should own this book. Period. Musicians in Brazil are using it as a Bible. Mandolin players are
studying Jacob's playing, of course. But guitarists and cavaquinho players are listening carefully to the 'minus-one' tracks to hear how the 'greatest
band in Brazil' lays down some of the most respected grooves in the history of Brazilian music.

In summary, the book contains two CDs,
representing two of Jacob's commercially released albums. All the tunes on the CDs, though, are set in pairs, first the commercially released full
version, immediately followed by a 'rehearsal track' that the band laid down for Jacob to practice against. There's a very detailed and authoritative
lead sheet for each tune, with many of Jacob's playing details carefully transcribed. In the back of the book is an appendix of several of Jacob's
variations on the repeats, painstakingly and quite accurately notated. All the lead sheets are in two versions, one in the original concert key, and
another in Bb, which clarinet and sax players really love.

Finally, for anyone who has tried to play along with or transcribe Jacob's
original recordings and been frustrated that the tuning is all over the map, all the recordings in this volume have been tweaked so that A-440 is the
reference, which is a huge help.

I've just ordered this as a replacement for a copy that I lost at a recent jam. I wouldn't be caught
without this book!
