La Santa Cecilia: “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out” (feat. California Feetwarmers)

By: Jack Anderson

In addition to receiving the 2014 Grammy for Best Latin Rock Album, they’ve played the Hollywood Bowl and have worked with Los Lobos, John Paul Jones, and Elvis Costello, and yet L.A.’s La Santa Cecilia is still hungry for more. Every branch of Pan-American and Latin music comes into the mix, not to mention other distinguishable influences from across the globe as well as modern production formulas, impressively covered by La Santa Cecilia’s bare four players.

La Santa Cecilia’s seventh album is appropriately self-titled, and with the help of Shakira/Enrique Iglesias Grammy-winner Sebastian Krys, it’s the best representation of the band yet, for both first-time listeners and longtime fans. La Santa Cecilia came out last Friday and in keeping with today’s all-covers theme, enjoy this quartet’s fresh but faithful rendition of the 1929 Bessie Smith hit, featuring California Feetwarmers, “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out”
