Edition: Jazz Studio Orchestra Arrangement

Description: Bossa Nova - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

The song Surfboard was supposedly composed by Jobim while on Ipanema beach having just purchased a surfboard for his son. It first appeared on the 1965 album The Wonderful World of Antonio Carlos Jobim. This Claus Ogerman arrangement comes from the 1967 album A Certain Mr. Jobim.

Primarily an organ feature (with an incredibly memorable melody), this arrangement also features 3 flutes, two of which double on piccolos. Rounding out the arrangement is one trombone, 2 violins, 2 celli, guitar, bass, and drums.

This publication was prepared from the original set of parts used during the recording session - this is not a transcription.
