Yes, certainly it's a high quality samba! Congratulation...
This is samba? o_õ
Yes, if you play it that way :-). Obviously, the automated MuseScore playback doesn't have any concept of how to create appropriate accompaniment for lead sheets. Also, note it says "funky" samba - it's not really meant to be a "traditional" Brazilian samba. More a fusion. But while I have a very clear sense of the groove in my own head, I have a hard time conveying it to drummers.
Thanks for the kind words! These piecs are all performed regularly, and many of the have been recorded. At some point I do hope to upload recordings to accompany the scores here on musescore.com. I know they are still working on ways of making that happen, though.
Hope you'll make all your beautiful songs with a band or a music program someday. Not that I'm lazy, but sometimes there are kids to be fed and a wife to kiss and at that time it would be great to walk around in the house and listen to what you have been thinkin about groove, instrumentation and voicing. And find a place to start. You make so many beautiful things, so the main problem is where to start.
Thanks! I do have several recordings out that include many of my compositions, but nothing for the last five years or so, and there are a lot of pieces as yet unrecorded. This piece - Pinwheel - is actually on a CD entitled "Doing All Right" by saxophonist Keith Oxman.
