Opening track off a new CD called "Rhythm Summit" with taiko master Kenny Endo and great friend and bassist Dean Taba. This tune is based on the Cuban "clave", with the meter being in eleven. It actually lays pretty nicely, especially when we get into the montuno section where the subdivision is 4, 4, and 3.
