Commissioned by the Hinsdale Middle School Jazz Ensemble (directed by George Andrikokus) and in memory of Chicago trumpeter Art Hoyle, this chart based on the changes to "Black Orpheus" is a great way to introduce bossa nova style and early improvisation techniques.

Below is a sample recording, as well as links to a sample score and ordering information.  All charts are available with alterations to instrumentation, backing click tracks for rehearsal or virtual performance options, and Smartmusic files.  Please feel free to reach out with any questions or requests via the contact form.
