Adriano de Oliveira is a brazilian drummer who played with Leny Andrade, João Carlos Coutinho, Lucio Nascimento, Paulo Morello, Toots Thielemans and many other musicians. Not well know as drummer he is a master of brazilian drumming (samba, bossa nova), his style is really unique!
Here’s the drum transcription of his work with Leny Andrade on the brazilian tune “Chora tua Tristeza”from the album Bossa nova (1991). The tune is a samba with an half-time feel on the bridge, the main sections are: intro, section A (verse), bridge, ending.
An important thing: Adriano plays the hi-hat softly with the tip of the stick and expect where indicated is played without accent.
