Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Bossa Nova - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"One Note Samba" has been done many a time, usually in a straight-ahead slightly dull gentle latin feel. Not this version! Wally Menard has pulled off a really creative job of writing to give this chart a totally unique signature. It kicks off with a Trumpet / Trombone answerback intro, followed by unison Saxes, and 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 and form in the middle of the chart. Unison Bones, Bari and Rhythm, overlaid with Saxes and screaming trumpet figures build and build until, with a tangible feeling of relief, the chart collapses back into a gentle Latin feel. This is passionate writing!! The mp3 is courtesy of the Strayhorns Big Band.
