At the height of the energy, the bossa is working, the subtle fingerpicking on the guitar locks in with the melody, and it’s on: the intro, the flourishes - it all flowers beautifully into that slow modified rumba clave.
The lyrical voice picks up the lead, and we are immersed in the story: the infatuation, the separation, the longing - the dream is everything.
And the trumpet rings a nice counterpoint to the main pocket, while the groove takes us out. La Cita brings a fresh take on a classic genre for the spoiled masses of the LA Basin to enjoy.
