Rhythm party is a loose translation of the title which refers to the combining of styles which make up the two sections of this tune. Ritmo Soiree starts off in a mambo and then to a calypso for the B section. The key changes also correspond to the different sections. The key of Eb minor for the mambo section really beefs up the bottom end with the bass part. There is a solo section followed by a D.S. back to the A section, back through the tune to end with a panorama-esque coda.
