"Bad Boys and Blondes" Bossa Nova
Note: Score at Sounding pitch.
Commentary by Left Brain vs. Right Brain. LB: "My assignment was to compose a minute of music to promote Murder of a Botoxed Blonde, the 9th book in the Scumble River Mystery book series by author Denise Swanson. This book, in tandem with her previous book Murder of a Real Bad Boy, struck a spark of inspiration." RB: "So I guess this is a twofer, eh? A rough draft of this piece was premi�red during a lecture which the author gave to a Chicago meeting of Sisters in Crime. Afterward a study group issued a series of 79 recommendations for this music, which ranged from ’cut and run’ to ’bomb it into the stone age’." LB: "The most important of these recommendations were to tone up the conga and bongo drums, and to tone down the guiros."

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:
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.
