New Album from Verny Varela y La Tropa - La Rumba No Se Acaba - Salsa Dura de Colombia
Música tropical de Cuba y Francia - Rubén Paz y Chéverefusión
LA TIMBA LA TRAIGO YO - Nuevo Disco de Robert Armas y los Conquistadores de la Salsa
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.

Percussionist and vocalist Jesus Diaz has produced a beautiful debut done with class and sabor. Highly recommended. What a fine recording this unexpected gem turned out to be! -Bruce Polin,, September 26, 1999

"Well known for his smoking percussion contributions to many bands and recordings, Díaz has arrived with "Su QBA". This welcome recording introduces us to Diaz’ vocal and composition skills. From traditional Afro-Cuban religious music, classic son montuno to the pulsing sounds of timba, Diaz takes us on a "sweet" and memorable musical exploration. Each tune finds a groove to sit into or get up and dance to! …Indulge your musical sweet tooth and get CARAMELO today!
--Julia Sewell,, June 1999
