Silly Samba - composed and arranged for Bigband by Joe Mongelli.
Silly Samba could well be the theme for an imaginary 1960’s James Bond film. It features the bones taking the initial melody, lots of interlocking interplay between the various horn sections, a whimsical turn of melody and a serious ’60’s groove that doesn’t quit! Improv solo section allows your stars to shine. Don’t let the seemingly simple melody fool you - this chart requires discipline, chops and maturity to execute. Scored for 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 bones and full rhythm section, this fun chart is for college and pro-level big bands.
