There's also a fair bit of funk bass popping and slapping thrown in for good measure. The final recorded version actually features Brazilian percussion by Marcos Suzano (LENINE, STING), lead vocal by Brazilian phenom Badi Assad and flamenco palmas by Paco and Yolanda Arroyo.Watch the clip below. The track "Angelina" appears on Jeff's forthcoming solo debut, "Equilibrium", tentatively due later in the year.
