    I was surprised not to see a review on this book. I bought it some time ago. And I was thrilled by it. The songs have a beautifull simple rythm, they sound great for piano solo or in a band/with others. Some improvisations are even written out. It includes...

    arrangement on known songs as "Oye como va" and 'Besa me mucho". It is what it says 'exploring latin piano'. Forget the other books. This will introduce you to latin piano and is a stepping stone to improvisation and playing in a band. So finally a book that is fun and explores the different sides of latin piano music.
