Intermediate/Advanced. It has become standard practice today for the professional musician to play at least one Latin tune in each set for added interest and variety. This popular set contains 10 beautiful and popular Bossa Novas that jazz players have enjoyed for years, played with a distinct "jazz flair" that adds energy and excitment. Complete with melody, chords, and lyrics. Transposed parts for all instruments. These songs, with their crisp, clean, tropical flavor, always seem to find a way of warming up cold practice rooms on a cold day.
For meditative and truly authentic "Brazilian" styled Bossa Novas, see our play-a-long Volume 98 "Antonio Carlos Jobim", under "Related Items".
Rhythm Section: Hal Galper (p); Steve Gilmore (b); Bill Goodwin (d)
