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.

Veritably overflowing with world-class talent, this album features top-notch arrangements and instrumentalists paired with the hottest vocalists of the time to make this a true homage to "El Caballero del Son" Adalberto Álvarez.

It is indicative of Adalberto's success that such a powerhouse group of artists have come together to interpret his music.

A tremendous starting point are the stellar arrangements of Lázaro D. González, Juan Manuel Ceruto and Germán Velazco. González' shines in his arrangement of "Agua que cae del cielo" while Ceruto infuses his selections with jazz and harder edged timba. These are wonderfully interpreted by players like Alexander Abreu, Yonder de Jesús Peña, Orlando Pérez, and Pancho Amat, with vocalists Aramís Galindo, a veteran of Adalberto's many bands, Mario "Mayito" Rivera and Pedro Calvo of Los Van Van fame, NG la Banda's Tony Calá, the classic sonero Raúl Planas and timba's young lion Michel Maza, all important figures in Cuban music.

A true all-star lineup and TRIBUTE to Adalberto. A must have record for Cuban music collectors.
