Rebeca Mauleón-Santana, author of the critically-acclaimed Salsa Guidebook for Piano and Ensemble and co-editor of The Latin Real Book, creates the ultimate resource for the aspiring as well as the seasoned Afro-Caribbean pianist with her newest book, 101 Montunos. Tracing over one hundred years of development, Mauleón explores the range and variety of the piano's role in popular Afro-Caribbean music, from its early beginnings to the latest in contemporary styles. 101 Montunos is a journey through dozens of styles which form the basis of modern-day Salsa and Latin Jazz, from the Cuban danzón and songo to the Puerto Rican bomba and Dominican merengue.This guide gives detailed examples of the most popular rhythms in Afro-Caribbean music, and includes recorded performances on CDs by the author herself. With a bilingual (English/Spanish) text, 101 Montunos gives the reader a glimpse into the intricate and syncopated world of Latin piano playing, featuring well over one hundred montuno patterns and variations — most including bass lines — as well as several solo fragments by some of the most renowned pianists in the field. This book and two CD is a must for any pianist or keyboardist wishing to explore the detailed history and technique of this marvelous art form. Clearance deal: AWG. 25.-
