Endorsed by John Patitucci, Kenny Barron and others, this book covers the eight most important styles of Brazilian music and shows exactly what each instrument is supposed to play. The CDs give drummers, bassists, guitarists and piano players a chance to play-along and learn from a master Brazilian rhythm section, including Nelson, Cliff, Cafe, Paulo Braga and David Finck. Includes two play-along CDs featuring:
Nelson Faria – guitar (author of “The Brazilian Guitar Book”)
Cliff Korman – piano (NY/Brazil recording artist)
Paulo Braga – drums (drummer with Antonio Carlos Jobim, etc.)
David Finck – acoustic bass (NY Jazz & Brazilian recording artist)
Itaiguara Brandao – electric bass (NY/Brazil recording artist)
Café – percussion (Brazil’s best-known percussionist)
This is the first book/CD package ever published that provides an opportunity for bassists, guitarists, pianists and drummers to interact and play-along with a master Brazilian rhythm section. Perfect for practicing both accompanying and soloing.
The book provides over 100 pages of valuable information, including the charts for the CD tracks and sample parts for each instrument, transcribed from the recording.
Players at all levels will find inspiration and guidance as they learn eight of the most common styles of Brazilian music – samba, bossa nova, partido-alto, choro, baiao, frevo, marcha-rancho and afoxé.
