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.

On this recording Willie Sotelo and Rei Peña, both authentic sons of the "Salsa Gorda” of the 1970's, masterfully realize their vision of yesterday’s salsa recorded with today's sound. La salsa con el concepto del ayer pero con el sonido de hoy.......Para el bailador!!

There's nothing like the rhythmic brilliance of Puerto Rican salsa to remind us which season is headed our way. Zesty, sunny, sexy, defiant and mischievous, playful, light-hearted but seious about the danceability, Willie Sotelo's exceptionally dynamic salsa band captures the heat like few do. The flash and flair are all here, the intoxicating rhythms driven by piano, fat horns and singers make this spicy album a hit. If you're even the slightest fan of salsa, party music or beat-oriented Latin music, look no further. --CD-4-Less Records
