Latin: Bossa Nova
This is a beautiful melody and arrangement by Mike Smukal. It begins with a four-bar chorale intro, then moves into an easy bossa feel, with the melody played by 1st alto sax and 2nd trumpet and a written-out solo later on for the alto. A shimmering ensemble section, lush harmonies and lead trumpet range to written G on top of the staff are but a few highlights of this fine chart. Gorgeous writing.
