New Dan Zanes Music: "Colas"

Head on over to Dan Zanes' new blog, The Welcome Table, for a free download of a track recorded as part of the session for Zanes' upcoming 2008 album En Latino.

The new song, "Colas," is not a tribute to highly sugared carbonated beverages. Rather, it is (in DZ's words), "is a traditional son jarocho from Veracruz, Mexico introduced to me by the Villa-Lobos Brothers, a trio from Veracruz now living in Nueva York." The opening riff sounds a bit like "Catch That Train," but then it moves into a slightly more traditional sound. Zanes' Spanish sounds passable. The whole track is a bunch of fun.
