This is a latin-jazz tune in E minor. I’m not very familiar with latin-jazz, so consider this song an educated guess. It uses common chord progressions like a descending bass (m. 1) and the circle of 5ths (m. 10). Lots of syncopation throughout, so read the rhythms closely. On the chorus (m. 26), the left hand holds out a few notes and also plays quarter notes in the bass. This type of accompaniment provides a full sound, but also a sense of forward motion.
