La Valla/Nora Se Va

7-inch (Item 426027) Truth & Soul, 2006 — Condition: New Copy
Temporarily Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record


4.80 3

Quite possibly the heaviest groove we've heard to date from Bronx River Parkway – a tune that snaps out with a stark little break on the beginning – really crackling with a heavy funk energy, but also sharing a bit of Wu-Tang like piano in the background! As the tune rolls on, the record picks up a bit more of a Latin flourish on the horns and vocals – setting the scene for the mellower "Nora Se Va" on the flipside – a jazzy laidback number with piano darting out nicely underneath Spanish language vocals!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of the deepest tracks so far from Lady – a cut that has the duo stepping out in a mode that's almost vintage Memphis soul, but which has this nice contemporary crackle on the rhythms!

Great funky guitar kicks off this sweet gem from the Lady duo – riffing fast, then fuzzy and slow – all mixed with rolling conga lines that almost create a Curtom sort of energy to the tune, and helps the vocals really soar with a majesty that's even greater than their previous work! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
