    Default The Girl from Ipanema, for solo mandola (or mandolin)

    I am not primarily a jazz player so I don't post in this section of the Cafe, but I thought this might be of interest to people here. It is a solo arrangement of "The Girl from Ipanema," originally made for mandolin but performed here on mandola. The arrangement is dedicated to my friend Lucille Bjorneby in appreciation for her many contributions to the Classical Mandolin Society of America. The instrument is a Weber Alder #1, early 2000s.

    Thanks! One of my most very special wonderful favorite (I have other adjectives as well but I'll keep this short) songs! I heard you play this a couple years ago at the CMSA open mike sessions, loved it then and love it now on mandola. Thanks.
