Looking for your recommendations for book and CD on Latin styles that is as effective as Friendland's intro blues book. I really want a Latin styles book that has standards, I hate learning generic stuff. BY the way, I dont expect to need to spend much time with the feel & rhythms; I get them
. Just need to know the forms, idioms, walk ups, etc.
By Latin styles I mean salsa, bossa, samba, merengue, son, cha cha, latin jazz etc.
