A samba song about a city in Brazil. Wrote it on a gloomy wintery evening in London, dreaming of better times.

A variety of rhythm styles work with this piece depending on the effect desired. I've put two styles in this version - a more laid-back version for the A section and a bit more energy in the B section. The only real difference is that in the B section the snare hits on each backbeat, but it makes quite a big difference!

Macapá is a popular tune for small jazz/Latin ensemble and now it's being brought to big band in style with this new arrangement! Featuring a sunny, cheerful melody, fun lines for numerous instruments, and a toe-tapping samba beat, Macapá is sure to put a smile on everybody's face and get plenty of bodies on the dance floor.

The soaring flute part is optional, but highly recommended!

The PDF download includes all parts in the score plus a few others (optional clarinet part + an auxiliary percussion guide). I am happy to provide transposed parts for other instruments if desired.
