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.

Con la compañia de Victor Manuelle, Josue Rosado, Luisito Carrion, Osvaldo Roan, Pupi Cantor, Pedro Brull, Henry Santiago, Miguel Mendez and Andy Montañez, entre otros, La Orquesta Puertoriqueña y su lider Don Perignon festeja su vigesimo aniversario con este disco de Salsa del más alto nivel. Para todo coleccionista serio de la salsa este álbum es, sin discución, un requerimiento.

Cousin of Puerto Rican musical icon Rafael Cortijo, Don Perignon conquered the timbales by age fifteen and later joined Lalo Rodriguez's band. After also working for Andy Montañez's (of Gran Combo fame) as musical director, he was nicknamed "Don Perignon" after his elegant style of timbale playing. This recording celebrates the 20th anniversary of the band he formed and leads, La Orquesta Puertorriqueña, and featured many greats of Puerto Rican salsa: Roberto Roena, Elías López and Raúl Rodríguez, as well as an entourage of singing superstars, namely Luisito Carrión, Josué Rosado, Victor Manuelle, Pedro Brull, Pupi Cantor and Andy Montañez.
