Celebrating a Year

Today I hear that Valle is gone. A terrific 7-string player (center) with great heart and soul, he played Choro for the love and joy of it. Tuesdays in Rio would usually find me at Luiz’s (left) roda in a lively bar, floating my solos over the tight 6- & 7-string harmony lines of those two. My bandolim lies on the table as I stepped away to take this photo. This morning, at home, I play Jacob’s “Evocacao,” in Valle’s memory, a beautiful duet I will always be glad I got to play with him.
