The Quo Vadis for new Latin Bands
Naoise O'hannain | Dublin, Ireland - Europa | 06/04/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Gives the music theory and foundations for Latin music, shows how the different parts fit together.
For the Intermediate to Advanced player.
It covers (Clave, Cascara-Timbales, Campana, Piano, Congas, Bass & Marimbas). Each element is reviewed and fitted into place.
It also has an excercise section for Rhythm and Melody.
Very worthwhile for budding band musicians. I would also recommend Poncho Sanchez's PlayAlong DVD - 'Fundamentals of Latin Music for the Rhythm Section' [Cherry Lane] ISBN:1575607565.
'The Essence of Afro-Cuban Percussion & Drum Set' by Ed Uribe [WB]1576236196 & 'The Salsa Guidebook' by Rebeca Mauleon[Sher Music]0961470194, 'Guide to Bands' by Faue and 'Muy Caliente' by Mauleon, Stagnaro & Vilato [Sher Music]1883217083.
Why not a 5*- no dots (sheet music), is not multiregion (as all instruction videos should be) and has no continuous play loop for the practice sections.
But very much worth the money.
