Hi to everyone! smile

This week I'm going to show you another Big Band from the Villena's Conservatory's work. This piece is called "Mais que nada" and it's a samba composed by the Brazilian Jorge Ben.

This piece is (as i've alredy said) a samba, but, by order of the conductor, we played it with a Bossa Nova's rythm. This is a very known piece (at least in Spain, Portugal and Brazil)

Piano's part isn't very large in relation to musical variety. Godowsky would be very proud of mine (because this piece it's played only with the left hand grin )

Thanks for watching! laugh

One of my favorite tunes! Great job!

Have you heard the version sung by Elza Soares? It's my favorite version.
