New Stuff!

Here's the coolest feature of the new timba.com. If you look down and to the right, you'll see the "New Stuff" section (o "Lo nuevo" si estás en español).

Whenever anybody changes a page anywhere on timba.com it shows up here, so all you have to do is type www.timba.com, look in this box and you'll immediately know if anyone has added a tour date, an album review, a video, a photo gallery, a new club, a new music teacher, a new dance school, etc. Pretty cool, eh? You can also just click on the link to go to the newly edited page. You can also click "Next" to go back as far as you want through the additions of recent weeks.

The New Language Buttons

We now have two types of language buttons. The global button is located in the upper right hand corner of every page:

These buttons change the menus and other global text and also store the preference so that when a page is available in both languages, it displays in the one you've chosen. Of course, if an article is only available in one language, it always appears.

QBA with Carlos Caro Tonight

At Moe's Alley. See you there.

UPDATE: They were on fire! Like a band from Cuba, the years of rehearsing and arranging have resulted in an overwhelming arsenal of gears and bloques. Murray Low has got that crazy Rolando Luna finger action going and I don't think I've heard any Cuban drummer play the snare drum more creatively than Carlos Caro who was completely off the hook tonight. Look for a photo gallery and maybe even a bit of video from Tom. His fancy new still camera actually takes better video than most dedicated videocams. Also, mark down Dec. 11 at Sweet's Ballroom in Oakland. Jesús didn't give too many details, but it sounds like a major event. This could be a great new Bay Area venue.

The New TOC Feature

Among the complaints about the old timba.com were the difficulty of finding things and the huge pages that required so much scrolling. To address this, we've added the new INDICE-TABLE OF CONTENTS FEATURE. When an article is long, it sprouts a Table of Contents to the right, so you can quickly find your way around. For example, here's the TOC from Tom Ehrlich's massive new exhibit on the Latin Side of the San José Jazz Festival:
