transcription edited by Rob Holland

Juan Crespo Maza's cuerpo is a masterful example of pop songwriting -- catchy, deceptively simple, and full of unusual nuances that continue to grow on the listener, such as the abrupt modulations between C major and C minor. Humberto rises to the occasion with a funky bassline worthy of Jamerson himself, complete with virtuosic upward R&B figures in the A section and "walking bass" for the bridge. In addition to composing credits, Maza is listed as the arranger of La chica mamey, Matrimonio feliz, and, possibly the earth-shaking groove la Ritmo ever recorded: Ahora sí, voy a gozar.
