Yep, it's in 4/4 not 5/4. A clever chart on a super classic that everyone will recognize, young or old. The bossa nova tempo is around 130 BPM and there are written suggested solos for piano and alto sax. Lead trumpet range is to written B-flat above the staff, and an interlude reoccurs to offer contrast. It all works great!
