(Zequinha Abreu, arr. Andrew Gilpin)
Tico was the first arrangement I did for Ebony & Ivory, and it's still an audience favourite.
Whenever we play this tune, I'm reminded of Carmen Miranda singing it in the old Groucho Marx movie, "Copacabana." Fred and I
haven't had the nerve to wear our fruit hats yet, though.
