I rehearsed with a Latin/Fusion project last night. The mix is going to be about 1/2 standards and 1/2 Latin. In addition to a handful of Santana songs, we'll be doing some very ethnic, authentic Cuban rhythms; almost folky - like you'd have to be from Cuba. Good stuff though. My issue is, I've heard and enjoyed this type of music but have never played it. It's got a very distinct feel. Does anyone have any advice on formulating, improvisation, various techniques regarding Latin music? Perhaps some bass players to study? Thanks.
