Agua de Beber (”water to drink”), arranged by Ralph Hicks, is the introduction to Brazilian bossa nova you’ve been waiting for. This classic chart by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes has been heard just about everywhere except in a percussion ensemble setting…that is, until now!

This arrangement features some subtle introductions into the world of improvised music charts such as vamps, optional soloing, and a part for bass guitar. Hicks further offers some tips on how to achieve some true bossa nova flavor and on ways to get creative with the arrangement.

With a performance time of 2:25 minutes, this is the perfect groovy little supplement for your next concert.
