The SkyTracks Mixer is a new feature of this website released in the Summer of 2020 which allows you access to a special webpage with a MIXABLE Multi-Track player of all of the recorded parts of the demo for this arrangement. You will receive a link to this page along with a password, both of which you can share with your students so they can remotely access this versatile new learning tool.

STARTER SERIES - A Brazilian street dance tune composed by Ivan Lins, arranged in the style of Sergio Mendes' recording. A phonetic guide for the Portuguese lyric is written along with the lyrics to help the singers with the pronunciation. Features a latin percussion section (notated), works very well with synthesizer and guitar (although performance with piano, bass and drums works just fine), and gives your group a chance to sing with a strong and bright sound, ringing some bright and exciting chords. A great chord progression is the highlight of this tune, and an optional soprano saxophone solo can add a nice texture. Two versions of the Rhythm Track...with and without the sax solo.
notated bass (with chords), mixed notated and chord chart piano/keyboard, percussion guide part (for drumset, shaker, agogo bells and congas)
Written for the Monterey Jazz Festival Summer Camp Vocal Jazz Ensemble (2012)
