AllMusic Review by

Pixinguinha is Paulo Moura's tribute to Pixinguinha, the Brazilian musician who fused jazz and choro. Supported by Os Batutas (the Very Smart, Cool Ones), Moura plays a selection of swinging choro music, making explicit the implicit connections between choro and jazz. For anyone curious about the links between the two genres, this is an essential primer, but it's much more than that. It's an exciting, electrifying record that demostrates the distance between cultures may not be so great after all.
