Peter's Center for Latin Studies Conference Report and Two New Pedrito Galleries
Peter Maiden files this photo-report on the recent Center for Latin Studies conference with Bill Martínez, Raúl Fernández and others.
BOOK NEWS: Peter has also written an excellent book, Media Workers for Social Change, available in softcover, Kindle, iPad and Nook.
MORE BOOK NEWS: Robert Fernández is working on an instructional book on playing three batás with one player, and, along with Luca Brandoli, on the first transcription of the arará version of the Oru seco.
MORE BOOKS NEWS: My tome for dancers and non-musicians keeps growing. Should be done in less than a month. (And yes, that's what I said last month and the month before that.)
Now, on to the latest galleries, both on the Pedrito Martínez Group. Peter Maiden photographed them at Yoshi's, and Tom Ehrlich at the Monterey Jazz . Tom's earlier Yoshi's gallery is here. [Kevin Moore]
