Check out this modern Latin-infused composition. The light Latin groove sustains an intriguing melody with interesting time shifts. Our audio excerpt begins halfway through the rhythm section introduction and continues through the melody, fading out just before the C section.

Tears was released on the same album as Little J.J, but was not recorded until nearly a full year later—December 30, 1992, for Little J.J. and December 10, 1993, for Tears. During that time, Rob was working extensively with the Nat Adderley Quintet, with whom he frequently toured.
