Antonio Carlos Jobim
BIG BAND LATIN INSTRUMENTAL. A superb Medium Easy slow bossa arranged by Jerry Sheppard as a feature for two Fugelhorns (or Bb clarinets) with full band backing and a specially written Latin bass line. The piece is introduced by two flutes (cued on saxes) with 'free' Afro-Brazillian percussion designed to create an atmosphere of mystery and anticipation. (A useful percussion guide is the instructional video 'Rhythms and Colours' by Airto Moreira Produced by DCI - VH0158). Two Latin percussion parts included. Key Eb.

BIG BAND LATIN. This great arrangement penned by Jerry Sheppard opens with a Rio Carnival parade style fanfare, leading into a smooth modern samba rhythm with the lead shared between flugel / trombone and the sax section. Lively written solos are followed by fiery full band sections with Latin percussion breaks and an optional half tempo play off ending. Top note Bb for lead trumpet. Key F minor.

One Note Samba has been done many a time, usually in a straight-ahead slightly dull gentle latin feel. Not this version. It kicks off with a Trumpet/Trombone answerback intro, followed by unison Saxes & Trumpets to establish the tune, all the while with backings building up throughout the first chorus. Then, as is always the case with the more memorable arrangements, comes a complete change of feel & form in the middle of the chart, Unison Bones, Bari & Rhythm, overlaid with Saxes & screaming trumpet figures build & build until, with a tangible feeling of relief, the chart collapses back into a gentle Latin feel.

There have been many arrangements of Wave done over the years, & many suffer from being over-arranged. Wally Menard has produced a truly elegant pice of Latin scoring, & the result is an absolute joy to play. Other than the lead alto taking the tune to start with there are no solos, & the sectional interplay is really well handled, with each taking the melody at some point. The trumpets are mellow & the trombones lush. The last sax soli in particular flows into an extended ending that has a modal feel that falls naturally into place within the context of the whole chart. Learn More£29.50
