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.

This Special Edition compilation of Avance's original compositions showcases thier special style of comtemporay salsa.

Pronounced AAH-VAAN-CEH and meaning: ahead of contemporary thought, the act or process of moving forward. This is just one of many descriptions used to define this award winning 13 piece salsa ensemble people have come to know as AVANCE.

AVANCE originates and consists of the hottest and newest talents the San Francisco Bay Area has come to know. Four electrifying bilingual singers, a sizzling horn section and one of the best rhythm sections on the West Coast. Leading the group is Carlos Santana percussionist, Karl Perazzo and Co-Founder/Vocalist Armando Cordoba. Along with the three other vocalists Luis Morales, Jeff Cordoba and Jimmy Flores, each one brings to the table their own style, enriching each song with it's own personality. AVANCE's sound combines all the different styles of salsa: Puerto Rican, Cuban, New York, and Colombian. Add to the mix R&B, Soul and Pop and "Primeros Exitos" has something for every kind of salsero. When you see and hear AVANCE you're guaranteed three things: Sizzle, Style and most of all SWING!
