Beyond Salsa Piano is a history and anthology of the role of the piano in the Cuban rhythm section – from its first appearance to the present. In a broader sense, it’s a study of the tumbao – the art of creating music from layers of repeating rhythmic and melodic phrases. Whether these syncopated figures are called tumbaos, guajeos, montunos, riffs or vamps, this Afro-Cuban concept lies at the heart of nearly every popular music genre from salsa to rock , funk, R&B, hiphop and jazz.

While presented as a set of method books, the series doubles as a history course and record collecting guide for listeners, dancers, and players of instruments other than the piano.

Perhaps the most important goal of the series is to provide a comprehensive understanding of how tumbaos are constructed, their central role in the texture of Latin music of all eras, and the endless possibilities they provide for creative composing and arranging.

Joined by many SF-Bay-Area heavy hitters, Fito's third CD release is his best yet!! Along with his signature timba sound, his voice is spectacular on his already infamous 'viagra' merengue and a classsic cuban ballad.

Fito Reinoso's 'Comunicación': new release CD review
By Jimmy Arhon, editor@salsazon.com

Once again we are witnessing the sizzling rhythms of Cuban New-Wave. It is Cuba’s street beat that people dance to these days, and here is Fito Reinoso, the man with a broad musical background, together with his band Ritmo y Armonia that make it happen. His new CD titled "COMUNICACIÓN" is very refreshing and crisp in sound with flowing lyrics. The vocals are superb! A feast to the ear!

His new CD titled " COMUNICACION" is very refreshing and crisp in sound with flowing lyrics. The vocals are superb! A feast to the ear ! Fito Reinoso was born in Cuba, and after coming to the U.S.around 1980, chose to settle in the San Francisco Bay Area simply because of the immense talent of musicians that can be found here. The two previous albums “Ya Llegamos” and “Lo Que Me Gusta.....Dinero” were recorded around 1999 in the style of Timba, continue to enjoy success.

The new CD was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Laughing Tiger Studios in San Rafael by Ari Rios (owner - engineer - producer) who has a vast experience in music. He is a vocalist, musician, and writer with many accomplishments to his credit, and was also born in Cuba. The meticulous hard work of Fito, Ari, and the quality sound of the well known Bay Area musicians made this record world class. The CD contains Son-Timba style songs, but it does not stop short of having a variety with track #2 "Orisan Paguan" (authentic Afro-Cuban folk), and a merengue on track # 5 "Se Levanta El Niño". In all, it is a quality CD and a new treasure for a collector’s music library.
