LA’s, The Bombilla’s, have tonight succeeded in getting up me dancing; it started off as a foot tap but it didn’t take long before I was up off my chair, breaking moves across the floor..the kitchen floor that is!
Their brand new single titled, Tortuga, is to be the debut release from this collective of Los Angeles-based musicians and friends who got together to release this funky little 7″ vinyl 45! Featuring two instrumental tracks described as “Eclectic Soul,” The Bombillas have created a very enticing and inviting sound, drawing upon soul, jazz, eastern colours and organ funk as primary inspirations. What you have here is a very groovy modern take on a retro afro funk sound….
The band consists of, David Celia (Drums / Keys / Perc), Aquiles “Lito” Magana Jr (Guitar), Donovan Bullen (Bass), Greg Zilboorg (Trumpet) and Ian Anderson (Saxes and Flute) and tomorrow they will be releasing this single via LA’s independant funk/soul/jazz label, fspotrecords.
