The Roots of Timba, Pt I - 1947-Adivínalo
notes: In the second tumbao, the bass reinforces first the voices and then the horns, hinting at motivo, a rhythm section "gear" we'll be studying in Volume II.
(first 4 claves ... variations continue until end)
notes: This is the earliest example I've found where the bass improvises around the tumbao -- taking a basic idea and playing it differently each time, creating longer phrases from the variations. The recording quality is primitive but the bass playing is extremely modern and, like so many other aspects of Arsenio's music, would fit nicely in a modern timba track.
