101 Montunos

101 Montunos by Rebeca Mauleon. For piano. This edition: spiral-bound. The ultimate resource for the aspiring as well as the seasoned Afro-Caribbean pianist. Afro-Caribbean. Method book & 2 CDs. 151 pages. Published by Sher Music Company (SR.MON101).

ISBN 9781883217075. Afro-Caribbean. 8.5" x 11" inches.

Tracing over one hundred years of development, Mauleon 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 danzon 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 bi-lingual (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 package is a must for any pianist or keyboardist wishing to explore the detailed history and technique of this marvelous art form.

  • August 12, 2008 In Depth Discussion of Afro-Caribbean Jazz

    I don't know any other book that discusses Salsa music in such detail as this one. Most other books only tell you about the clave, montunos and tumbao. But this one holds detailed information about the history of different styles as well as all the little nuances of each...

    flavor. Alone the chapter about different claves and their application is longer than other books on the whole topic :o). I would recommend this book to anyone seriously interested in studying salsa music on the piano.

  • April 28, 2007 Fantastic!

    This book has all you need to start playing real salsa songs. Note though that it's just the pieces of a puzzle and you have to piece it together. Of course there is much more to learn, but as a start it's excellent. The best salsa book I...

    have tried...
