Volume 3 of Beyond Salsa Piano Live on LPM

Beyond Salsa Piano - The Cuban Timba Piano Revolution - by Kevin Moore - Vol. 3Volume 3 is now available in eBook and audio formats at LPM.

This one picks up the story after the Cuban Revolution. While 1950s Cuban music was thriving in New York as  "salsa", the Cubans on the island continued to evolve in a variety of eclectic directions.

Volumes 3 and 4 can be thought of as companions to timba.com's free online book The Roots of Timba, covering the same period from the pianist's point of view and paying special attention to Los Van Van, Ritmo Oriental, Irakere, Aragón, Los Maravillas de Florida, Orquesta 440, Opus 13, and Nueva Generación, the predecessor to NG La Banda.

Volume 3 also covers pilón, mozambique, and extensive appendix on Afro-Cuban folkloric rhythms

All told there are 106 audio files covering a wide range of tumbaos and exercises for feeling folkloric rhythms correctly.

Click here for a quick preview - and here to download the eBook and audio.

Alfredo Rodríguez at Yoshi's

Tuesday January 26th - Yoshi's San Francisco

Unfortunately the great master pianist many of us were lucky enough to see with Cubanismo has not come back from the dead, but the young and very much alive Alfredo Rodríguez is well worthy of his famous name. Tom saw him at the 2009 Monterery Jazz Festival and was completely blown away. Next Tuesday.

Vol. 2 Hard-Copy Goes Live

Beyond Salsa Piano, Vol. 2Beyond Salsa Piano, Vol. 2 is now available in hard-copy at createspace.com.

The audio files and eBook can be purchased at LatinPulseMusic.com.

Volume 2 covers the earliest piano tumbaos of Arcaño, Cachao & Co. and continues through the Golden Age of Beny Moré, Celia Cruz, Orquesta Aragón, Conjunto Modelo, et al.

Volume 3 should go live on LPM this weekend and live in hard-copy in a week or two.

Inspired by the recent surge in Cuban tours, I've also made quite a bit of progress lately on the first three Melón volumes - V6, V7 and V8.

Massive Quake in Haiti

The Richter scale is logarithmic, so while the 6.5 in Eureka knocked out David Peñalosa's power for a couple hours, the 7.0 in Haiti was truly devastating. Please help if you can.
