2 (Medium Easy)
This captivating chart is a bossa straight-eighth feel at about 140 BPM that is clever, creative, fun to play, and the best part is it’s not difficult to rehearse or perform. Everything is written out to include alto 1 and tenor 1 solos, some melodic action for all sections, modest brass ranges, and an interlude with winds only building into a great shout chorus.
