"A down-and-dirty way for Americans to get a feel for choro," writes Craig Einhorn in the notes to his new CD, "is to drink two beers rather quickly and sing 'Give My Regards to Broadway.'" The Brazilian music form choro is derived from Euro-dances such as polkas and waltzes, loosened up by African slaves, and literally means "to cry" in Portuguese. What Einhorn means is that, like everything that comes out of Brazil, from bossa nova to forro to bikini bottoms on the beach, it swings.
