English | 2020 | ISBN: N/A | ASIN: B08NYXXFJH | 96 pages | PDF | 3 MB
All jazz musicians play a number of Latin tunes, but for most cases Latin means a generalized feel and approach, and nothing necessarily specific beyond a straight eighth-note feel. This book offers the jazz pianist a more specific approach to playing Latin jazz piano based on traditional Latin music from Cuba-known as AfroCuban-and Brazil. Each differs in its rhythmic approach and feel, and each cornes from a different tradition. Whereas the piano is a crucial harmonie and rhythmic instrument in a traditional Afro-Cuban ensemble, the guitar more typical1y plays that role for a Brazilian ensemble. The jazz pianist, however, often is called on to supply chords and accompaniment rhythms for Brazilian-based jazz when a guitar is not present.
