This transcription SATB arrangement of the popular Pat Metheny tune will be a hit with your beginning jazz vocalists. This gentle samba follows the AABA form, with a repeated section for improvisation that can be done as many times as you wish. After the solo section, the AABA form is repeated by SATB choir and finalizes with a short coda. This piece may be done without the solo section, but the changes are accessible to young jazz singers and a wonderful way way to begin individual scat.
