Cascavello or Cascavelo (Jazz Samba)
I first heard this tune being played by a 6 piece combo in Boston, 1974. I found it on an Art Farmer album ca. 1964. I'm not sure if the name is correct or who composed it but the name Horst Mulbradt (sp?) has come up.
Anyway, I figured I would like to score it for a big band. I don't mean to monopolize the posting but I'm very excited with the results I'm starting to get, thanks to the suggestions many of you have given me as to the wet-dry issue, reverb and and a new one to me, randomizing.
Again I left out a big "solos" section because of the time element and I still prefer live soloists.
