Arranged by Myles Collins. Bossa Nova. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1341).
Item Number: JL.LL-1341
This chart of Desafinado is written as a smooth Bossa Nova, featuring your two tenor saxes. The sax solo lines are written out, so no improvisation is needed. The brass have limited ranges, with trumpets only reaching G5 and trombones 1, 2 & 3 reaching F4. The 4th trombone is a bass. This is a very easy chart to play, making it suitable for bands of all abilities, yet the ease of playing doesn't detract from its effectiveness in performance. There are no sax doubles. The audio is taken from a live performance.
