Grade 5 - “The Nomad” is the first movement of Infância: A Brazilian Suite in Three Movements for Jazz Orchestra. The piece starts off with a small section in the Brazilian maracatú groove; this section soon gives way to a musical journey in 5/4 meter, which features a strong and lyrical melody. The guitar and tenor saxophone are the featured soloists; optional piccolo, flute, voice, and percussion parts complete the orchestration. This exciting chart has been recorded on the 2017 album Infância, by the Cassio Vianna Jazz Orchestra (8 Brass). Trumpet range: C#6
