"Casa Loco" by Steve Jordan

  • 1 min read

Here's a transcription for Modern Drummer that I did back in 1989, I think you'll enjoy working on this one!

It's Steve Jordan's solo from the title track of the album Casa Loco with the group Eyewitness.

  • Steve Kahn on Guitar
  • Anthony Jackson on Bass
  • Steve Jordan on Drums
  • Manolo Badrena on Drums/Percussion/Vocals

Program the bass line ostinato in your favorite app to practice over.

What he does in measures 16 thru 24 is pretty amazing.

Solo starts at 07:30.

Bonus!!! A wonderful article written by Matt Phillips with Steve Kahn talking about making this classic album.

"The album is also totally unclassifiable – a ‘fusion’ band playing a blazing surf-rock cover tune (‘Penetration’)? An unhinged Puerto Rican percussionist singing in quasi-Spanish but sounding remarkably like Sting?"
