“Hispanica (instrumental)”, the new single from bassist, composer and band leader Christian de Mesones, is a vibrant, soulful, Latin-flavored contemporary jazz gem that prominently features legendary jazz pianist Bob James, who appears courtesy of Tappan Zee Records.  It is the instrumental re-imagining of a track from de Mesones’ debut solo project, “They Call Me Big New York”, which contained multiple charting singles and surpassed one million streams on Spotify.

With beautifully crafted supporting color from flautist Arch Thompson, “Hispanica (instrumental)”  now also boasts melodic, unison and harmony trumpet punches and interludes from Bill McGee, and showcases Curtis McCain on percussion and Mike Gamble on Guitar.  Carl Anderson lays a solid foundation on drums while Rob Maletick lends his sultry saxophone to this well-rounded composition.  “Hispanica (instrumental)” was written and co-produced by de Mesones who also plays bass on the track, produced and mixed by Christopher Scott Valentine, and mastered by David P. Marchione.
