Difficulties with Samba rythm

Post by DBH » Tue Oct 03, 2017 5:55 pm

I have recently started playing Samba(Brazil) by Jorge Cardoso from '24 South American Pieces'. After putting in some work using conventional approach I began to feel that I had not got it quite right so I listened to how professionals play it and sure enough they do not seem to follow what is written, the rhythm is significantly different. Although I am an amateur I have been playing for many years and always thought that my reading was not bad. Have I missed something all this time?
