full version  

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 the tenor sax (or piano or guitar). Both solos can be played using only a concert Bb 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. Trumpet range is to written B natural.
