Latin: Bossa Nova
This brilliant arrangement, featuring Jobim on Portugese vocals and crafted by Claus Ogerman, perfectly frames the stream of consciousness song. Ogerman's instrumentation features 4 various types of flutes along with violins, cello, guitar, piano, bass, and drums. Ogerman specifies 12 violins and 5 celli and provided exact divisi instructions (which are included). In addition, all flutes are on bass flute for 4 measures only. This has been retained but alternate alto flute parts are included in the event that bass flutes aren't available. Lastly, both the original Portuguese lyrics as well as the English lyrics are included.
