LA TIMBA LA TRAIGO YO - Nuevo Disco de Robert Armas y los Conquistadores de la Salsa
Música tropical de Cuba y Francia - Rubén Paz y Chéverefusión
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.

This recording is a collection of some of Los Bocucos' hits from the past, including great covers of "Ay Candela!" and the bolero "20 Años", along with some examples of more modern Cuban son and pilón. This was Roberto Correa's final project as director of Los Bocucos, as he passed away shortly after completion of this recording.

English: Los Bocucos, formed on 1959 by Pacho Alonso, are credited with being the creators of the 'Pilón' rhythm. They enjoyed their maximum popularity during the years 1960 to 1967, the year when Ibrahim Ferrer became the main voice. From 2002 and under the direction of Roimelys Fuentes, Los Bocucos bring us new releases and some of their classic hits.
