Arranged by Klaus Lessmann. Jazz Vocal. Bossa Nova. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2419).
Item Number: JL.LL-2419
Bem Bom is almost a standard for any Brazilian vocalist, and is a flowing Latin Bossa Nova that has some very unusual tonality, with a floating whole-tone feell in places. The lyric is entirely in Portugese, so some might need a bit of practice to get the pronunciation and phrasing right! If your singer likes songs such as Ipanema and Desafinado, she will love this too. The saxes are scored for Flute, Clarinet, Alto, Tenor and Baritone, a combination that adds real flavour to the feel of the chart. The arrangement is exquisitely crafted by Klaus Lessmann and features an unusual rubato opening passage that is a great contrast to what is to come. This chart is a joy to play.Bossa Nova @ 165 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: E6, Ab5, Ab5, Ab5 Trombones 1-4: G4, G4, F4, F4 Vocal key: Db; Female Gb3-Db5 (12 steps).
