Beyond Salsa Bass, The Cuban Timba Revolution Volume 7 ˇ Alain Pérez, Part 2
Volume 7 of Beyond Salsa Bass continues our 4-volume study of the style of Alain Pérez - the composer of La sandunguita, Salsa timba y amor, and Amigo Juan. Pérez is one of the most talented bassists, composers and arrangers of modern Cuban music. He shared a very unique musical chemistry with Issac Delgado and pianist Melón Lewis, the subject of Volumes 6-9 of Beyond Salsa Piano. The bass series follows the piano series exactly, covering the same songs, now from the perspective of the bassist. In addition to transcribing the notes, we also transcribe the percussive sounds that he uses to create his funky style. Each musical example is provided in 16th note notation, 8th note notion and bass tablature. There are corresponding audio and video products for each volume. Volume 7 has a complete 19-page note-for-note transcription of a live Alain Pérez performance and extensive discussion of the use of gears, controlled improvisation and improvisation of form in live Cuban dance music (timba, salsa).
