Snow Samba (vocals with big band)




Publisher: New York Voices
Year of Publication: 2004
Voicing: SATB w/rhythm section (optional six horn or big band accompaniment)
Duration: 5:30
Level: IV

As recorded by Paquito D’Rivera and New York Voices (“Brazilian Dreams” – 2003, MCG Jazz), this arrangement is for SATB and rhythm section, but has been expanded to include optional six horn or full big band accompaniment. The music was written by Paquito D’Rivera and Claudio Roditi, with lyrics by Cecilia Englehart. This is a reasonably challenging arrangement, which features a short female solo, and plenty of soloing space for both vocalists & instrumentalists alike. This makes a great closer for an advanced group.

NOTE: This arrangement contains Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass vocal parts, rhythm section parts, and big band accompaniment. To purchase the Snow Samba chart WITHOUT big band, click here.
