Rio Con Brio began as a vehicle for virtuoso mandolinist Tim Connell to indulge his obsession with the Brazilian national music “choro.” Joined by fellow gypsy jazz string player Mike Burdette, the two soon accumulated a large repertoire of these quirky instrumental tunes.
They have been a staple of Brazilian music and mandolin events and, because of their technique and Connell’s adventurous improvisation, have been featured in traditionally classical concert series and jazz festivals.
