This book introduces students and teachers to 24 Latin styles, ranging from Beguine to Conga, from Mambo to Samba. There is a description of each style, with music examples within the text that you can play, tap or clap. Then there is a delightful piano piece in each style, including scintillating and idiomatic backings tracks, sounding terrific through the wonderful Superscore sound engine.
This interactive edition of Essential Guide to Latin Styles for Keyboard is the first time that these pieces have been available with these new and much improved sounds (the original book, published in 1997, featured General MIDI files on floppy disk). Christopher Norton has carefully updated the text and music and has newly recorded the piano solos, thus creating this unique composer-approved edition.
