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.

Not much is known about this Adalberto Álvarez concert except that it was recorded in Milan, Italy in 1995. One of the two female keyboardists on the cover is Adalberto's daughter -Dorgeris Alvarez Balart. From the recording we also recognize one of the most unmistakable voices of Cuban music -Aramís Galindo- who was also featured on Adalberto's hit "Si No Vas A Cocinar". Be sure to also listen to Aramis on that hot Adalberto's 1999 release Jugando Con Candela. This live album covers many of the studio version released on the Locos Por El Son album.
