The title was going to be “I Love Yoshi” but I thought it was more appropriate to pay homage to Perez Prado, the one and only King of the Mambo (and of Cha-cha-cha, as in the second half). This was sort of a midterm exam – I’m heavily studying harmony and orchestration for jazz ensembles for no particular reason other than that it’s freaking awesome and fun to write for jazz ensembles. Hopefully live ones at some point. Or dead ones with robots standing over them, holding their instruments and turning them over in their gripping appendages, evaluating jazz as a psych tactic to leverage against the human resistance. I’ve got your back, Skynet, look me up.
