I had a ball with that man, that tall tan handsome man from Ipanema” as well as “Ahhh Senor por favor give me one chance, just one chance….” The fast bossa/ swing feel of it also is responsible for how she phrases and the way in which she phrases.

certain places such as adding a rest right before the word “Ahhh” as well as breaking it up into different notes in other takes. She also takes liberties with the melody through choosing notes that are higher in range that are unexpected. The band also helps in their changing in feels when later on in the tune she does her own medley of “Fly Me To The Moon” as well as a few others that I did not recognize. The rhythm section’s timing on when they did hits was also very helpful to the recording. The bassist was very influential in distinguishing the feel, and stands out more than the piano. Her other embellishments include the adding her signature scat syllables and sounds to the recording. All in all, the recording does an excellent job of being a very fun and inviting dance interpretation on a classic slow bossa.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
