A through-written mambo. Excellent groove with challenging rhythms and licks for all instruments. Bass and piano parts are written out. Parts for drums and optional claves and congas. The band does a vocal section, too (and it works and the audience loves it). Note: the solo section for trumpet 1 eight measures before Rehearsal Letter K can be improvised on an E7 chord as done in the recording.
