Amparito Roca

We’re some days into a chilly spring today, and with half our band away to warm and exotic places, I had traveling shoes in mind. So we’re off on the wings of the music, and nothing really trips us off to Spain like Jaime Teixidor’s 1925 pasodoble, the always popular Amparito Roca.

The pasodoble! It’s so flexible, so fluid and maleable, I had real trouble today choosing the definitive performance. It’s a two-step proud bravado march, a tune to take to the streets, a fanfare to usher in your toreadors, or as your prelude to the kill

or, if you prefer, as captured here above, as a romantic dance for two 🙂 Your choice.

Amazon: Amparito Roca
