Toontrack MIDI Packs – Latin Jazz Grooves
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
Grooves and fills that merge traditional Latin rhythms with classic jazz.
How traditional Latin American rhythms and classic jazz merged can be traced all the way back to the turn of the 20th century and to New Orleans. In the decades that followed, this new breed of jazz made its way up the coast to New York and then quickly around the globe.
Today, Latin jazz is arguably one of the most dynamic and diverse niches of the jazz world. At the center of it is of course the groove – the spellbinding Latin claves, seamlessly infused with the almost weightless stride and insistent syncopation that can’t be mistaken for anything but jazz. In this collection of drum MIDI, expect mambo, samba, songo and many other characteristic Latin rhythms flawlessly performed by no less than two different drummers, both delivering all the hallmark traits of jazz and Latin merged into one rhythmic dynamo. Simply put, this MIDI pack gives you the best of both worlds.
This drum MIDI pack was created in tandem with the Latin Jazz EZbass MIDI and Latin Jazz EZkeys MIDI packs. As always, any MIDI pack is great on its own – but combined with its counterparts, they become a powerhouse of creative possibilities!
