  1. Jubileu_pc

Jubileu is a spirited dobrado (march) from 1906 whose melodic and rhythmic gestures evoke the symphonic band repertoire of American composer John Philip Sousa (1854-1932). This arrangement remains faithful to the original bombeiro character.

It should be noted that bassline function was usually played by the tuba in short punctuated notes and did not use virtuosic baixarias later to become the staple of the violão sete cordas (seven-string guitar).
