This is the original Helen O'Connell version of Brazil, from her 1957 album "Green Eyes", as recorded with the Marion Evans Orchestra, and it is an out and out up tempo latin vocal feature. Opening with a grandiose rubato section, the chart then kicks right into Samba feel at 240 beats a minute, though will sound good at a slightly reduced tempo too. The original chart was written for 6 Brass, and we have augmented this up to an 8 piece section. The reeds are written AATTB, with AATT all expected to double Flute, and the Baritone to double Bass Clarinet. However, we recognise that not every sax team can cope with this, so, we have included alternate sax parts which do not have any required instrument doubles. These parts are printed on the reverse of the original sax parts. On her album recording the chart ended in a fade out. Whilst fine for a studio, fade endings rarely work live, so we have added a few measures at the end of the chart to bring it to a positive finish. The vocal key is Eb throughout.
