Having produced the third album by the Orquestra de Cordas Dedilhadas and several others dedicated to choro music and musicians, Annes had Sounds of Pernambuco, recorded by the Oficina de Cordas de Pernambuco, released in the U.S. by WTA dos Estados Unidos, while Música de Pernambuco, also recorded by the Oficina, was launched in England by Nimbus. Annes was, with cavaquinho player Jacaré, the only musician from Pernambuco invited for the nationwide choro panel realized in Rio de Janeiro in 2001 by the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (Bank of Brazil Culture Center). His debut was as the only accompanist on Canhoto da Paraíba’s first album in 1968, Único Amor. At that time, Annes, who had become acquainted with da Paraíba through their mutual participation in programs at the Rádio Jornal do Commercio (Recife, Pernambuco), was only 22 years old, while da Paraíba was already 40 and highly reputed nationwide in choro circles.
