For a person who loves to dance, nothing is better than salsa, or merengue, or yes, even bachata.
To each his own and thank God for that.
I resemble that remark, Merengue Tipico does require a few lessons and practice to play la tambora.
The cheese grater maybe one lesson!
Getting back to the "OP" question, there "was" a great little bar off the lobby of the Hotel Naco Plaza, in the
Naco Shopping Plaza,on Ave. Tiradentes, of ALL PLACES.
Hotel is still there, different name now.
Can't say if the bar is still there or not.
people like this caused me to give up the bass
Jeff Beck, Tal Wilkenfeld - Cause We've Ended As Lovers - YouTube
i knew it was never going to happen. i can still play in a bachata band, though.
Not to fret, Tal could play better than most veteran pros of any age or genre by age 15. And to date at still
under 30 yrs of age has played with the worlds best players.
But still, even Getty Lee enjoys Bachata and merengue from time to time. Some of the greatest pop songs of the
50 years have sought to utilize the syncopated passion of bachata...Hotel California as but one example.
And as a drummer And romantic at heart, there is something to be said for a national musical genre...where a
generations most Popular songs can be recited and danced to among all members of most families. That Is a
wonderful thing the US
and euro countries just do not have...a national, and passionately followed musical genre.
And btw, as someone whose opinions would cause him to drop his drum kit and pick up a cheese grater to
Participate it pains me to note that regarding your musical simplicity comments, Juan Luis, Anthony and even that other Santos...would tend to differ with you, have the bank accounts and in the case of Aventura the sold out
Shows from centro Olympico to the Garden to prove it.
Lo se, sold out shows do not account for taste. But just sayin
i gave up playing music when i realized i was no good. however, i have listened to my fair share. i was 13 years old when i was listening to, and collecting, Coltrane, Getz, Miles, etc. you know that quality has nothing to do with selling out venues, because the average man cannot appreciate anything of higher quality, as far as music goes. that is even more true of today, when TV made people stars. if Chaka Khan and Joe Cocker had come along today, they would have died as trivia questions, since they are not tv friendly. Romeo Santos can probably sell out a venue that Amy Keys, for example, cannot. the gap in talent and ability is of Grand Canyon proportions. i love salsa, because it is creative, and has some serious orchestration. i have never heard a bachata song which i wanted to hear again. that is coming from a man who was the scourge of radio stations, because i would always call the board to get the names of songs they forgot to announce. bachata is for dancing, only. it is not a display of musical merit and skill. skill is Jeff Beck playing like he does without using a plectrum.
