An original tune written by Kirby, this Latin number is hot! Your students will want to learn the samba for this song. Rich harmonies with seventh and ninth chords and challenging, syncopated rhythms make this an exciting number. A dance break led by a trumpet solo leads into the bridge section that starts softly and builds to the end. The horn parts are very challenging, but greatly enhance the Latin feel of the song. Make sure your drummer knows how to do a Latin beat.
