Emulating the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Eliane Elias, this light and breezy samba is an ideal change-of-pace choice for any performance. With a title meaning "lovely" in Portuguese, it features a duet of alto sax and trombone with the melody at the top, solid ensemble writing, a strong rhythmic groove and an open solo section with solo sheets included, making it a perfect teaching and performance vehicle. Additional features include a brief trombone soli, the ensemble trading with the drummer, and an effective build to a quiet ending. Nice chart! 10513205 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 52.00 H Feels So GoodChuck Mangione/arr. Victor Lopez. Only rarely does a jazz tune cross over to the pop charts the way this Chuck Mangione classic did back in the seventies! Flugelhorn solo on the 1st trumpet part is featured throughout with the distinctive melody and then with a written or ad lib solo along with a tenor solo. The flugelhorn solo range is up to an optional written high C, but the solo is cued on the 1st tenor part as well. Victor's arrangement brings this contemporary gem within the range of the developing trumpet player without losing any of the hip appeal of the original. Here's a perennially appealing, samba/rock chart that will provide outstanding performance opportunities for your band and soloist! Highly recommended! 2480787 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 52.00 n I Wanna Be Like YouSherman & Sherman/ arr. John Wasson. What happens when one of the hottest swing bands in the land cuts loose on a Disney classic? Cranked up excitement! Big Bad Voodoo Daddy takes a mambo spin on I Wan'na Be Like You from "The Jungle Book," and with lots of tutti writing, your band will get a real powerhouse sound! 2433704 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 50.00 4 It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)Duke Ellington/arr. Ralph Ford. You may think this very clever chart is all swing, but it begins as Latin then alternates with a swing feel. The tempo is bright at around 190-200 bpm with suggested solos for trumpet and tenor sax, a few piano montunos, and a big shout chorus leading to a huge ending closing this fine chart appropriately. Additional wind parts and a vibes part are included for optional expanded instrumentations. Highly recommended! 10756380 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 48.00 Just FriendsJohn Klenner/arr. Scott Ragsdale. The jazz classic Just Friends is set here as a trombone section feature with a samba groove. This superb chart with a lyrical melody also features written or ad lib solo space for trombones 1 and 2, excellent and accessible trombone solis, and a lead trumpet range to written A above the staff. Give the 'bones some of the spotlight with this exceptional arrangement! 10311435 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 52.00 4 Let's Get LoudEstefan & Santander/arr. Rich Woolworth. As written by Gloria Estefan and Kiki Santander, this Latin pop tune was a huge hit for Jennifer Lopez. Here, in the hands of Rich Woolworth, it translates into an extremely awesome jazz band chart. With tons of Latin flair in the rhythm section and tasty horn licks, this one will be lots of fun to play and perform before your adoring audiences! 10752081 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 65.00 4 Mambo Over the MountainRick Hirsch. This catchy mambo is built almost entirely on the rhythmic figure clapped in the first two bars. Its authentic mambo flavor is a blast to play. After two bars of hand claps, it's winds only, then the rhythm section is layered in. Nice combinations of instrumental textures keep things interesting throughout. The solos can be opened up for as many players as desired, there are optional parts included for expanded instrumentations, and don't miss the highly effective drum/percussion-only interlude near the end! This is a great chart with a lot of substance. 10734986 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 60.00 n MantecaDizzy Gillespie/arr. Mike Tomaro.

This medium tempo arrangement of one of his best-known compositions really sizzles for jazz ensemble. 2384543 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 55.00 4 Mi Mentor, Mi AmigoErik Sherburne. Erik Sherburne's exciting samba chart is very playable and very melodic. A unique and highly effective a cappella introduction leads to themes that allow the chart to settle into a distinct groove before the solos. A powerful interlude leads to a strong ensemble section before returning to melodies from the opening section. Sure to become a favorite, this chart is highly recommended! 10757087 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 52.00 4 Midnight BuffetAndrew Neu. Inspired by the music of Brazil, this chart is an upbeat, catchy, medium-tempo samba that's impossible to get out of your head.

Great for change-of-pace programming! 10682769 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 52.00 n NaimaJohn Coltrane/arr. Craig Skeffington.

Optional expanded instrumentation. 10093179 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 52.00 A Night in Tunisia (Little Big Band)Gillespie & Paparelli/arr. Michael Mossman. Michael Mossman takes Dizzy Gillespie's signature tune into new territory, with a touch of mambo in this distinctive arrangement for little big band. A perfect way to showcase a trumpet soloist, the full ensemble also plays an important role in this sophisticated and dynamic arrangement for six horns and rhythm section. Instrumentation: 3 Saxes; 2 Trumpets; 1 Trombone plus Rhythm Section. For flexibility, optional parts are included for Alto and Tenor Saxes and Trombone. 10317258 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 45.00 Night of the MojitoAndrew Neu. Reminiscent of the music of Quincy Jones and Henry Mancini in the 1960s, this catchy boogaloo for advancing groups is a fun-loving fusion of Brazilian, Afro/ Cuban and American funk influences. The easy solo changes are based on a minor blues with an 8-bar bridge; while tenor sax and trumpet are the designated soloists, chords are also cued for alto sax and trombone. 10452995 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 52.00 OclupacaDuke Ellington/arr. Michael Mossman. Michael Mossman uses a moderately fast Afro/ Cuban style to craft this setting of a lesser-known Duke Ellington work. This striking and fresh sounding chart features tight harmonies and a driving rhythmic groove along with solo space for trombone, trumpet and any saxophone. Suggested solos and chord/scale sheets in all keys are included. The unexpected shift in feel for the shout chorus after the solos will knock your socks off! 10343794 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 55.00 l On Green Dolphin Street (Little Big Band)arr.

Soprano saxophone has the lead with alto saxophone 2 optionally doubling on soprano. Here is a wonderfully unique change-of-pace offering! 10748152 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 57.00 OverjoyedStevie Wonder/arr. Mark Taylor.

Victor Lopez. Mambo! Arranger Victor Lopez has masterfully intertwined a mambo and a swing feel in this great Juan Tizol jazz classic.

Optional expanded instrumentation. 10093181 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 52.00 n Quiero Mas (I Want More)Mike Carubia. Not just another Latin chart, Quiero Mas has a relaxed feel, but stays exciting at all times!

Playable with optional limited instrumentation, Salta! is kid tested and kid approved! 10607086 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 48.00 l Samba NovaDan Torosian/arr.Paul Baker. Samba Nova has a breezy samba melody suited for a beach in Rio while melodic counterpoint plays in the sand. Following a funky half-time interlude the trumpet takes the first solo, followed by tenor sax, piano, or guitar. Both solos can be played using only a concert B-flat major scale. Following the solos, the drums, or optional congas, trade phrases with the ensemble before moving on to a sax soli and shout section. The trumpet range is to written B natural. 10754130 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . . . 50.00 H SpainChick Corea/arr. Paul Jennings.
