Chet and Villa-Lobos Choro No 1?

Postby Art Sims » Thu Aug 01, 2013 1:34 pm

I’m wondering if anyone knows whether Chet played Villa-Lobos Choro No. 1. There’s an album I once had called Carribean Guitar that included a piece by him, Mayan Dance, so terrificly played it astonished me. I no longer have the album but recently found the song online. Seems like there was another album with similar music but I can’t remember it. I’d love to know if the Villa-Lobos song I'm thinking about was played by him.

Art,

Chet did not record Choro No.1 by Heitor Villa Lobos. He certainly would have played it
with a great musical groove. The Lauro Vals (Mayan Dance) is the lone classical guitar piece on that album.

Thanks John.
Not exactly what I hoped but at least I now know not to search for it.
