Brazilian Piano teaches elements of some of the most appealing Brazilian musical styles: choro, samba, and bossa nova. It starts with rhythmic training to develop the fundamental groove of Brazilian music. Next, examples build up a rhythmic and harmonic vocabulary that can be used when playing the original songs that follow. Besides providing audio for the examples in the book, the CD contains ensemble recordings that allow you to improvise through the middle chorus. Additional versions of the ensemble tunes are included on the CD-ROM section of the disc, accessible via computer. Features artist interviews and bios.
