Infectious Latin rhythms complement the evocative melody of this familiar piece, first released in the early 1940’s. With the discerning placement of stopped techniques and careful orchestration of handbells and handchimes, the arranger has captured the spirit of Cuban composer Lecuona’s work. A percussion staff is notated as a basic recommendation with encouragement to add a variety of rhythms and instruments suited to the style of the piece. “The Breeze and I” is arranged in C Major, Ab Major, and A Major. It is 153 measures.
