This is a short, joyful and energetic piece lasting around three minutes. Written as a homage to Paquito D’Rivera, the piece is a fast salsa with flowing streams of quavers with an  enjoyable chromatic twistiness.

This version for flute and guitar was made by James Girling, and it is well suited to this combination. It’s great to see more of Andy Scott’s pieces appearing for this duo—look out too for the arrangement of And Everything is Still…, which could provide an enjoyable contrast to Paquito in a recital programme.

Paquito is short, snappy, and a huge amount of fun. It would be an ideal as an encore piece or to provide a punchy opener for a programme.
