Beyond Salsa Piano - First Releases!

Beyond Salsa Piano - The Cuban Timba Piano Revolution - by Kevin Moore - Vol. 1It's so much more fun to write them than to proofread them ....

In any case, the eBook and audio files for Volume 1 can now be purchased at LPM. I've also added a new status page, where you can keep tabs on the projected release dates for the other volumes and related products. The physical book version has been approved and will appear on amazon in about a week or so.

And of course, the "online book" is already on timba.com, with one or two complete tumbaos - with audio - from each of the first 6 volumes.

To clear up any confusion, here's how it works: for each volume in the series there are actually FOUR different "products". Click "continue reading" below for the details.

Somebody Slap Me

I'm starting to believe this is actually going to happen. I'll let you know when and if there are actual boots on the ground, but it's gotten as far as this cool site that counts down the days and hours:

Charanga Habanera in SF Countdown Site

Do I hear the distant rumblings of floodgates opening?

Of course, readers in Canada, Perú and Europe, must be rolling around laughing as they watch us poor yumas flailing around in agony and anticipation.

Charanga Habanera in SF - Dec. 22

I've been bitten by Charanga rumors before, but it looks the visas have come through, and, if so, the indefatigable Shabi has managed to get them to extend to tour to the West Coast. No ticket links yet, but the venue is Café Cócomo. Stay tuned! The last gig CH played in the US was this one in Dec. 2000, exactly 9 years ago.

Check back or check Cócomo's site for updates. There's a plan to add a second show the next night if the first one sells out.

Tom's Danny Lozada Photos - pt. 1

Click here. Check back later for concert photos.

The first gallery is from the extremely educational rehearsal sessions, where the differences between the Cuban and American approaches was quite apparent.
