A bit more about this chart...
One of the most popular Anton Carlos Jobimís songs, Wave, is featured today. If you check out the 1967 Wave Album, you will also see that Jobim was surrounded by a number of other great jazz artists including Urbie Green on trombone and Ron Carter on bass. Of course, Jobim, the incredible Brazilian composer, is consider to be single handedly responsible for all things bossa nova. Kirby Shaw has captured the feel and essence of Jobimís bossa nova style in this arrangement. With a great middle vocalese section, excellent rhythm parts completely written out for the instrumentalist and lots of space for soloing, Wave is one of the classiest charts you can do with you jazz choir. Piano, bass and guitar parts written out so your jazz choir can sound great form the top
