Desafinado Composed by Antonio C Jobin. Arranged by Matt Harris. For Combo. Published by Kendor Music Inc. (Catalog # 5160, UPC: 822795051605)

Penned by Brazilian songwriter Antonio Carlos Jobim in 1959, this famous bossa nova became a runaway American hit when sax artist Stan Getz and guitarist Charlie Byrd recorded it for their 1962 album Jazz Samba. A year later Getz won the Grammy for Best Jazz Performance and the tune went 'gold' when record sales surpassed one million copies. In this adaptation for instrumental combo, rhythm section parts are partially notated with chords cued and no improvised solos are required.
