We met Ricardo Giuffrida at the Marc Teicholz concert a few weeks back, and I remember him telling me that some of the great Brazilian guitarist/composers had serious day jobs. In particular he mentioned that Guinga had been a dentist (I had no idea). Then it turns out that Ricardo is also a doctor who plays (Ricardo is from Brazil, so maybe it’s a Brazilian thing) and he doesn’t just play a little. So when he came back to the showroom last week we had to shoot some videos of him playing some great Brazilian classics and one of his own compositions, which is pretty impressive. So here’s Ricardo, doing what he does when he’s not doctoring.
Here he’s playing Guinga’s ‘Baiao de Lacan’ on a 1997 Alfredo Velazquez.
Here he is playing Garoto’s ‘Jorge do Fusa’ on a 1964 ‘Jose’ David Rubio.
Here he’s playing Jobim’s ‘Triste’ on a 1993 Miguel Rodriguez ‘Centenario’.
Here he’s playing ‘Chama’ by Helio Del Miro on a 1995 Kevin Aram.
And finally here he is playing his own piece, “Boi de Piranha” on a Teodoro Perez ‘Concierto’.
