RAYOS DE SANGRE

La Cocodrila

In cart Not available Out of stock

Rayos de Sangre - (“Blood Lightning”) by La Cocodrila is a Latin Rock instrumental track with an original throwback sound. 

La Cocodrila goes into a new direction and switches to a throwback synth sound with her own complex blend of thrashing Latin rock, jazz improv & crazy swing rhythms, this time in 70s-style. Hear that Latin Rock beat kicking off in the beginning? Dig that chill bass line. Electric guitar and trumpet solos confab with La Cocodrila’s acid theme, and opinions by the trombone and flute keep it gravy. As you might expect, she gets in the last word - musically speaking - when the song ends at 4:20.

Rayos de Sangre - composed, arranged, performed and produced by Deborah “La Cocodrila” De La Torre, Latinx jazz pianist. With Ron Bland (electric bass) Thomas A. Blomster (percussion) and Dave DeMichelis (electric guitar), with Dan Leavitt (trumpet) Jeff Craig (trombone) and Joe Anderies (flute). Recorded and mixed by Tyler Hayden and mastered by Justin Davis at Rocky Mountain Recorders in Denver, Colorado; Album cover artwork by Vincent De La Torre.

AGUA BOSQUE - the legend of thunder following after the swirling winds, announcing the fierce rainstorm bringing life, death and rebirth. The track includes instrumental images such as the sound of water drops played by the percussion and bass guitar, various bird calls and hurricane winds played by the piano, the undertone of rumbling of thunder played by the percussion, and the tropical insects and frogs, which are played in staggered rhythms by the horns and percussion, and at the end in live audio captured from La Cocodrila's recent travels.

Coño! (But With A Swing)

La Cocodrila

La Cocodrila's debut Latin Jazz instrumental album title’s first word means “Damn!” in Cuban Spanish, a word you might say as you try to dance to some of the tunes when the rhythm breaks your ankles.

Rules about jazz scales (shredded), Latin rhythms (thrashed), and chords (change ‘em fast, change ‘em often) are obviously meant to be broken. ¡Coño! (But With A Swing) blends genres, meters and Latinx regional influences in sharp and edgy ways, and her aggressive and solid piano playing demonstrates an assertive command of the instrument, granting her the well-deserved nickname “La Cocodrila” (the Lady Crocodile).

There is plenty of technical and arranging skill to be heard throughout the music, ranging from a traditional American/Latinx bop dissolving into a thoughtful Cool Jazz ending, to some Cuban mini-big-band band arrangements, and a few Classical/Jazz/Latin-American/Spanish /Caribbean-style songs that show off her virtuosity while composing “on the hyphen.” ¡Coño! (But With A Swing) has something for the traditional, the modern, the avant-garde and the everyday Latin Jazz lover.
