Bay Area on Fire This Weekend

Mayito at Cócomo Saturday

Alfredo Rodríguez at SF Jazz Thursday through Sunday

Alfredo Rodríguez, Henry Cole and Ricky Rodríguez held court at Kuumbwa tonight. In addition to being world-class virtuosos on an individual level these three have insanely great chemistry at a level seldom heard in jazz. You can hear them in the intimate atmosphere of SF Jazz's front room every night, Thursday through Sunday.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, Mayito Rivera returns to the Bay Area (at Cócomo on Saturday night) with a great band including ex-Paulito drummer Mauricio Herrera.

Click "Continue Reading" for more of Tom Ehrlich's photos from Kuumbwa.

The Return of Ian Stewart

... and the Mother of all Method Books

After setting up Timba Bass Corner and NYC Bulletin, bassist/writer Ian Stewart set out on a six-month cruise ship gig. He returns this week and has already submitted a review of Rafael Rosa's new CD, Portrait.

Meanwhile, I'm up to 442 pages, over 600 audio files, and almost done with the longest book of the Beyond Salsa series: Beyond Salsa Bass, Vol. 3 - Salsa, Songo and The Roots of Latin Jazz. While it has several hundred bass tumbaos, this is primarily a history book, covering the 1950-1990 period from three points of view: Puerto Rico, New York, and Cuba. More info coming. [Kevin Moore]
