No, no, no! The horns will be playing here, too. That's the whole point of "a la manera de Santos"! This is only a soft start, as I said before, before things start to go  crazy.

So, that, clearly, is the intention. How well I will manage to do it properly? I'm afraid to make a guess.

Reha,
 
Ah! Now I get it.
 
Thanks for your patience with my lack of understanding.
 
I'm looking forward to the crazy development. You have something extra special in that voice melody.
 
Cheers,
Jer

Jer, I'm always learning a lot from discussing with you. Especially with your background in jazz, you obviously have no "lack of understanding" at all. It's me trying to walk in unknown territory and has a lot to understand and learn. The "no, no, no!" is not out of impatience but a sign of lively and sincere discussion conversation as far as I'm concerned. Still, sorry if it's understood otherwise.

As to the "crazy" thing, I'm starting to get a bit scared of the raised expectations! But, it's largely that colorful, highly contrapuntal and melodic horns accompaniment to vocalist that has made Santos arrangements a favorite in the first place.

Reha,
 
Can't go wrong by borrowing ideas from the masters.
 
Cheers,

I liked it. I think it has a good feel. Of course it's difficult to completely assess it since at the moment its just a snippet. I look forward to the expanded piece.
