Program Notes

A catchy Latin bass riff sets off some hot rhythms in a simmering tune that shifts from minor to major.

- Program Note from publisher

Robert Sheldon takes us south of the border with this delightful selection for young band. El Taco Picante uses catchy Latin rhythms, bass riffs, and a melody that shifts from minor to major to capture the spirit of a fiesta.
