From the recording Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim
This is an arrangement I crafted after performing so many different versions of this song with so many different artists. I added some of my own ideas that evolved over the years and borrowed from others and really just had fun with it.
This is from the Demo I made with my quintet in Colorado called "Banda" We played as house band for a few years at Vartan's Jazz club in Denver Colorado. The group featured many of Colorado's finest jazz musicians and the legendary Brazilian musician Claudio Slon on drums.
The Banda Demo was finished quickly in two days to look for gigs. I am sorry we never recorded a CD later on, years after this demo, the band was sounding really good!
Mitchell Long - vocals and guitar, Claudio Slon - drums, Bijoux - bass, Jeff Jenkins - piano and Bob Rebholz on woodwinds.
