Azevedo was possibly the most successful choro musician in the mid-twentieth century.
Brasileirinho (1947) is an infectious, high-energy piece which among choro musicians is as popular as Um a Zero and Noites Cariocas.

This arrangement is loosely based on Azevedo’s 1949 original recording, with additional baixarias which are scored in parallel thirds between six and seven-string guitars.
