    OK Latin Fans, I need some good info on Salvador Cuevas, please forgive me if I did not spell his name right. I would like some suggestions of what CD's I should get to hear his funky style of Salsa/Latin bass playing. I have been told to check him out with the Fania Alstars, but wich ones?
    Thanks and God Bless

    Sal Cuevas is an all time great. check out the tune Tumbao Africano from the Ray Barrettto album Rican/Struction, it pretty well sums up his mighty presence. If anyone has transcription of his basslines to share I'd love to see them. I'm working on a transcription of the above tune right now and I'll happily share it when I'm done.
