"Salsa! The Rhythm of Latin Music" by Charley Gerard with Marty Sheller
Comes with CD

http://i70.servimg.com/u/f70/13/10/72/19/s11.jpg

This book focuses on explaining the basic rhythm's of salsa and other latin music. Some knowledge of reading music is needed. Also explains where these rhythm's come from. Very recommended if you want to understand the music itself.

"The Official Descarga Latin Music Guidebook: 2001"

This is not really a book. Instead it is a catolog of Descarga's (descarga.com) products. Descarga is the largest mail order company for tropical music. For me, this book is a reference guide, in fact a type of bible for all the CD's for all the salsa artists. It lists each salsa artist's CD's and the songs on all of them and the copyright year of the CD. I suppose this catolog is not as useful now as it was before the availibity of the web, but I still say it's worth having.

FACES SALSA PB (Paperback)

FACES SALSA PB (Paperback)
by Fuentes Lp (Author)






An award-winning Cuban novelist interviews famous salsa musicians about their lives and music.

In this collection of masterfully crafted interviews with some of the most famous creators of the music we call salsa, prize-winning Cuban novelist Leonardo Padura Fuentes explores the genesis of the music, its rise in popularity, its social context, and its artistic legacy. Filled with personal revelations by the musicians, historical detail about their lives and times, and colorful anecdotes about their identities, friendships, and working relationships, the book is a tribute to the artistry and social commitment of some of the most inventive artists of our time.

In his brilliant introduction about the idols of Latin music since the 1920s, and throughout the book, Padura takes up the old dispute about the relationship of salsa to the Cuban music known as son, but the book is not a search for origins. Rather, through his conversations with a group of extraordinarily articulate musicians, he reveals how the aesthetics of salsa filled a cultural void, transforming popular Latin and Caribbean dance music and creating a new generation of musicians who would establish a new model: the salsero, an artist who had embarked upon something his forbearers never did—a conscious project. 13 b/w photographs.

About the Author
Leonardo Padura Fuentes is a Cuban writer whose works include Máscaras, La Puerta de Alcalá y Otras Cacerías, Vientos de Cuaresma, and Pasada Perfecto. [img][/img]
