039 - The Peanut Vendor
About the song
Written by Moises Simons
Arranged by Bill Moffit
Listed in the US National Recording Registry, as "the first American recording of an authentic Latin dance style. ... introducing U.S. listeners to Cuban percussion instruments and Cuban rhythms."
Tune the front line. The parts are a little high and tend to stay there.
Balance plays a key part in this tune as both the bass line and the front line parts are an ostenato for much of the piece.
