These ten pieces cover most of the bases between Salsa and Bossa Nova. They use many idiomatic rhythm patterns and harmonies, and are designed to provide the intermediate pianist with exciting repertoire. The enclosed CD with piano recordings of every song in the book is a good reference guide for proper interpretation of the pieces.
