Following on the heels of the popular Salsa/Pop CD, comes the newest from L.A. Carpool with a decidedly L.A. feel including the awesome Malibu Sunrise instrumental. Check it out on www.cdbaby.com/all/lacarpool and see them at www.youtube.com/lacarpool.
The L.A. Carpool website has already received over one million hits. But thats just one indication of the bands growing popularity. L.A. Carpool has been featured in a Salsa night club scene on the CBS television show First Monday, and the song Salsa Inferno was played. The band has performed live on LATV Live, KJLA which broadcasts to approximately 10 million bi-lingual households.
The L.A. Carpool was also heard in the major motion picture NARC starring Ray Liotta and Jason Patric. The song Mi Guajira was redone especially at the music supervisors request to have a male voice singing the song in Spanish. The song plays in the background as Patric and Liotta team up as partners in a caf scene, so watch and listen for it there. The band and our individual names are acknowledged in the credits at the end.
What makes this band accessible and different is the layered wall of sound that incorporates a full Latin rhythm section of the best Los Angeles Salsa musicians, playing typical mambo, son, chas and all other popular musical idioms enjoyed by Salsa dancers throughout the World. On top of that, we layer the song with an intelligent lyrics by Rick Ryan and pop sensibility. Former Geffen Records Artist Frank Garcia who also writes and produces the melody lines in conjuntion with producer/creator Jack Gold, plays guitar. The finishing touches are the rhythmic background vocals sung in Spanish. World famous percussionist Richie Gajate-Garcia adds to the Tropical rhythm sounds, and the singer Gloria T (half Colombian and half Irish) sounds sweet, hot and sexy in both English and Spanish.
