Antonio Carlos Jobim, « Luiza »

Luiza is a composition written by brazilian multi-instrumentist and composer Antonio-Carlos Jobim.

This beautiful Jobim’s is written in an unusual 3/4 meter (though the melody sounds great and is often played « freely »).  

You may notice two endings on this chart. The original one (last system), and a four bars « vamp », which is nice to blow over and use in between forms.

Some of the melody notes may not be played twice on instrumental versions (lyrics).
