SAMBA PALMITO Light (for BigBand)

This "Light"-arrangement is a more easy version of Samba Palmito (also known as TDs Samba) for e.g. Secondary School BigBand or similar. You can "open up" for perc. solo at letter E if you wish. Baritonesax, 4th Trumpet, 3rd Trombone and Guitar is optional, but it sound better, at least with a Baritonesax. You can play it as written or if you want more than one soloist repeat from letter G. If you want a shorter version you can take D.S. al Coda (with or without solo) from letter C. Carneval in Rio? Yes, Iv’e been there and from that Carneval I got the inspiration to write SAMBA PALMITO (Palmito = palm of hearts).

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
