Solista Suave for Jazz Ensemble (PDF & MP3)
Feature a Trumpet, Alto Sax, and Trombone soloist on this Bossa Nova ballad that translates to "Smooth Soloist". Your students will enjoy the relaxed feel of this ballad, which stays cool from beginning to end. With only 2 chords (Bb7 and Eb7) beginning soloists can comfortably improvise with soul and expression in the open solo section, and a bass or drum soloist (or both) gets featured as they "trade fours" with the whole ensemble. Sandwiched between two up-tempo charts, this ballad will provide your audiences an exotic, lush reprieve!
This is an instant PDF download that you can print or send to your students digitally. It includes a full professional recording AND a solo section "play-along" track as MP3 files.
