This is the best known piece by Ernesto Nazareth, a Brazilian popular musician and composer whose musical styles were eventually overtaken by newer ones such as the bossa nova. In a ragtime manner not unlike Scott Joplin's, his music enjoyed huge success and lends itself to showy, extravert arrangement. I have upped the tempo and style to a Thirties' Big Band number with plenty to do for everyone and lots of interest for the audience.
