Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Bossa Nova - Medium

Publisher: Walrus Music Publishing

This arrangement takes its orchestration directly from Debussy's solo piano masterpiece, not the popular fake book lead sheet. Debussy's impossibly difficult to forget melodies, transitions and interludes, forged in the 19th century, work exceedingly well with 20th and 21st century jazz sensibilities. Reverie, with its symmetrical phrases and 8th note ostinati makes it a natural fit for a laid-back bossa nova interpretation; it finds its groove at mm 100. Tenor 1 on soprano sax (or clarinet) introduces the melody which quickly transitions to a full ensemble presentation. The chart unfolds following Debussy's own harmonic and melodic journey. Trumpets double on Flugels, with lead to a brief written D. 1st tenor doubles on soprano sax or clarinet. Medium.
