-- April Day --

A rewritten bossa nova   (mine, see "Bossa the Woods,")  which accordingly has a bossa nova-like chord progression behind a

distinctly minor modal melody with some unusual rules about the steps, but with the tempo recast as a  "straight four" divided

subtly into fast triplets,almost a 6/8 "jig" feel with a bouncy emphasis about it, this  tune  is  probably also "Swing," if we must classify.

Key: E minor        Time signature: 4/4         Tempo: 160          Length: 160 measures          Time: 4 minutes, 1 second

Instruments:  Flute, Viola, Chorused Piano, and a layered bass sound made from too-low banjo and too-low wooden whistle.

It would take a specially constructed Baritone Banjo and people blowing across the tops of bottles to make this sound.
