The intro to this MG piece is a 24 bar, seemingly mechanically arbitrary passage that the drums and bass play in unison. I included it here as an additional clearer pdf. This, plus the accents on beat 3 then 1 of the first two bars of the head are two important points of playing the song. Practice it with the right hand playing the quarters on the high hat, then on the ride with the left foot on the off beats – That’s all the last head section in this transcription is, the unison section repeated with a different challenge in independence .
I also included the tenor saxophone melody to highlight where Guiliana plays across the bar line at the beginning of the head and to assist with playing the accents.
The groove in the first head is something similar to a jazz baiao rhythm. I’d recommend checking those grooves out, I only transcribed that section in parts, you can improvise the rest. He then moves the groove to the high hat for the solo sections, grooving in his jazz-rock-dnb style, still playing across the bar lines. Love the song.
