English: This track deals with adolescence similarly to how “Mas” does. When I first moved to New York in 2003, the smartphone had not made its impact on society yet and at the time, cellphones used something called T9 where each number button had 3 or 4 letters on it and when you’d try to type out a message, the phone would try to guess what you were trying to write down. There were times when I would be out in the city, late at night with my peers, who were all just as enamored and stunned by the music scene in New York, where inevitably at some point, everyone’s heads would be tilted down and texting via T9 would ensue. This was what I thought of as the “T9 tribe”- a bunch of young kids playing music in New York that are now leading a world-wide movement in the evolution of jazz.

Español: Este movimiento vincula a la adolescencia de una manera similar a lo ocurrido en: "Mas" . Cuando me mudé a Nueva York en el 2003, el “smart-phone” no había tenido aun el impacto en la sociedad que actualmente posee. Los teléfonos celulares usaban algo llamado "T9" donde cada botón de número tenía 3 o 4 letras incluidas y cuando se intentaba escribir un mensaje, el teléfono trataba de adivinar lo que se pretendía anotar. Había momentos en que yo estaba en la ciudad, tarde en la noche con mis compañeros, que estaban todos tan enamorados e impactados - como yo - por la escena musical que caracteriza a Nueva York, donde inevitablemente en algún momento, las cabezas de todo el mundo se inclinaban hacia abajo para elaborar mensajes de texto a través de "T9". Esto es lo que yo pienso de la "tribu T9", un grupo de jóvenes niños tocando música en Nueva York quienes hoy en día lideran un movimiento mundial en la evolución del jazz.
