This jazzy samba-choro "Samba on the beach" is a tribute to the prolific composer-pianist-guitarist Radámes Gnattali (1906-88). Although not as heralded as Villa-Lobos, he was just as prolific and stylistically versatile in any musical style or ensemble. The AABACA form is girdled by a Bmi-Emi-Dma tonal scheme which is rife with Gnattali's harmonic sophistication and slyness.
