Edition: Jazz Studio Orchestra Arrangement

Description: Bossa Nova - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Triste is one of Antonio Carlos Jobim's most beloved and frequently-covered compositions. Claus Ogerman's arrangement for Jobim's 1967 album Wave is both lush enough to accentuate the lovely melody and minimalist enough to not overwhelm it.

The introduction consists of the guitar setting the gently moving medium bossa feel behind some moody chords in the woodwinds and strings. The form of the tune is played through twice. The first time through is a melody statement that is split in half between piano and trombone (performed by Urbie Green on the original recording). The second time features the piano the whole way through, with an improvised half chorus being followed up by the melody once more. The accompaniment throughout needs to be kept at a relatively low volume and executed in a smooth, graceful manner. The arrangement ultimately ends on an extended minor vamp, with the trombone playing a unique melody line over the top.

This publication was based on Claus Ogerman's pencil score - this is not a transcription.
