PRIMERA PLANA - FRONT PAGE
Hard Copy of Volume 1 Now Available
The first volume of my Beyond Salsa Piano series is now also available as a full color paperback book on amazon.com! Note that this is the book only. The audio files are only available at LPM, which also sells a digital-only version of the book for a reduced price.
I've updated the new status page accordingly.
Volume 2 will be available in digital format before Christmas and hard-copy in January (I hope - amazon is changing to a better system and I'm waiting for that before uploading more volumes).
In the meantime, here's the online version, which includes audio and notation for excerpts from the first 6 volumes.
Huge QBA Show in Oakland Tonight!
Jesús Díaz y su QBA will be at Sweet's Ballroom tonight for the first what what will hopefully be a steady string of Cuban music concerts at this classic (and massive) venue in downtown Oakland. The next event will be a rumba party with Sandy Pérez, Jesús Díaz and Erick Barbería Sunday night, from 7:00-11:00.
Tirso Duarte in Colombia
Speaking of Charangueros, Tirso Duarte will begin his first tour of Colombia with a concert in Santander de Quilichao on December 24th, a great way to celebrate Christmas Eve.! Tirso & Proyecto K Libre will have 6 concerts in Colombia during the holiday season, culminating in a New Year's Day concert in Robles. Check Tirso's tour page for the complete list of concerts. And thanks to salsaproducciones for posting information about the tour in the Timba.com Forum.
Meanwhile in Havana Tirso is performing at Café Cantante today in a special concert with Pachito Alonso y Sus Kini Kini and Manolito y Su Trabuco. It breaks my heart to miss it!
Beyond Salsa Piano - First Releases!
It'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.
