The Girl from Ipanema (Garota De Ipanema) (feat. Claus Ogerman Orchestra) percussion drum map

Girl from Ipanema percussion part: Brushes, shaker, cross stick Recording

Going into the last section there is a little confusion as the percussionist switches over to full on brushes.

Classic EDM Beat 1

This dance is nearly 100 years old. In the 1930s a simple variation of this the basis of Swing music, in the 1970s Disco and now EDM. Cool. 

Here are some recent samples. Tempo range is 125-130 BPM.


Wake me up
Hey Brother


"Right this second" uses a simple variation, the high hat is swung. The track is in 12/8

Calvin Harris

Feeling so close

What fun.

Alone Marshmello

Points of interest. Only one groove has a backbeat. The interludes have a quarter note pulse with the accent on 1 and 3 not 2 and 4.

As always the person who does the transcription learns the most.

Rifftide Coleman Hawkings and Al Cohn 2 versions

Coleman Hawkin's version is slightly slower. Both drummers keep it real simple. The bass/guitar lead the rhythm section in the Hawkin's version. Ride and bass in the faster second version. The power of simplicity: no getting in the face of the soloists. I learned first hand this summer: soloists playing jazz from the classic period (pre 1960 styles) really prefer we stay the hell out of the way.
