Beyond Salsa Bass V2 Published
Arsenio, Cachao and the Golden Age
A free audio download is coming soon. This one has four major sections: a theoretical course on creating the rhythmic breaks that Arsenio called cierres, a massive 120-page survey of Arsenio's Cuban recordings, a chapter on Cachao López and a chapter called "The Golden Age" that provides bass tumbaos for each piano tumbao of Beyond Salsa Piano Vol. 2. I'm already about halfway through Volume 3: Salsa, Songo and The Roots of Latin Jazz.
Also new to LatinPulseMusic is a new book by one of my favorite writers, Chuck Silverman. Among many other publications, Chuck wrote the sublime "The Funkmasters" on the rhythm sections of James Brown, one of the greatest method books ever published in my humble opinion. His new book is called The Latin Rudiments. [Kevin Moore]
Orquesta Pomo - Mi Nena
Sneak Preview of Upcoming Single
Good news just keeps on coming out of Stockholm! Orquesta Pomo will be releasing their new single "Mi Nena" on November 15th. The song was composed and produced by pianist and bandleader Jonas Pomo and features Thomas Eby, known to timberos as the voice of Calle Real, on lead vocals. "Mi Nena" is a reflection of the band's sello of mixing salsa and timba with soul and jazz to create a very modern groove with an appeal that goes beyond the usual salsa-dancing public. Distributed by Soneros Records, "Mi Nena" will be available at all the major digital outlets on November 15th and the video will debut in early December. In the meantime here is an all-too-short teaser to give you an idea of what's coming! You can keep up with Orquesta Pomo by "liking" their official Facebook page.
