I just sat in with 2 Latin players who are looking to start a band. One is a congero, and quite learned, older cat. The other is a trap drummer, and just incredible. My wife is an Afro-Cuban percussionist and we've played together, so I thought I could drop in with these two cats easily. Man, did I get a workout. I nailed the salsa, merengue, and cumbia. I got got my arse handed to me in 6/8 though. I don't know why I had such a hard time with it. They said I needed to practice to Puerto Rican 6/8, I haven't any idea what that means, so I guess that's my goal for the week. Anyone wanna define Puerto Rican 6/8 for me? I played a bunch of my stuff for them and they really dug it. They're not so versed in jazz and the fusions thereof that I played. That worked in my favor. The drummer was so busy yet quiet. I love it when a drummer can let go and fly, and still be quiet, I could hear the congas perfectly over him. The place has an Ampeg 610 and an Orange Terror Bass there, so I just used it. Really nice rig, better sounding than I was expecting. Anyone else play Latin rhythms with jazz fusion? I'd love some insight from those who do.
