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.

Sofisticado e intenso latin jazz afro-cubano, este con cierto destaca al percusionista y director Joaquín Pozo, aquí usando seis congas, que suenan fantásticas, con su cuarteto acompañado de muchos artistas invitados (10 músicos en total). Esta producción fue grabada en vivo en uno de los clubes habaneros de más prestigio dentro del circuito artístico cubano -La Zorra y el Cuervo- localizado en la Calle 23 (La Rampa). Un verdadero placer escuchar este grupo de músicos desarollar los temas.
