I love the feel of this track. A perfect Sunday afternoon instrumental that goes from pensive to latin at the drop of a hat. The interplay of the trilling piano chords and the booker t style guitar comping is amazing. I always thought of this as more garage, but it seems leon haywood had his hands in the making of this, and the band was some how related to the packers, another l.a. soul instrumental group. This a great song to begin the night with, or wind down to. The session feel is flawless, like they are equally at home with floyd cramer and stax. I love it when he yells out at the end in response to his piano line "heres some salsa, squeeze everything you got."
