"As with all of Sher Music's books, The Latin Bass Book is a well-done and concise breakdown of the fundamentals of this wonderful idiom. It's written clearly enough for even the most beginning players; but even if you think you already 'know' Latin bass playing, this book is for you! Trust me, you'll learn plenty!" - Benny Rietveld

"An indispensable learning and practice tool. This book acts as a personal master class with Stagnaro. Part of the joy of this book is just to engulf yourself in the sound and rhythmic feel of Stagnaro's bass lines on the CDs. They are tight and solid, and really open up creative ways of playing a bass part throughout an endless array of Latin and related music styles. This book is so full of great ideas and helpful hints that bassists looking to learn about the intricacies of playing Latin jazz can't go wrong." - Down Beat Magazine

"My extraordinary long-time bassist, Oscar Stagnaro, is one of the most intelligent, classy, dedicated and versatile musicians I have ever worked with. All of his valuable knowledge, a product of years of research and 'on the road' experience, is generously reflected in this book." - Paquito D'Rivera

"By far the most detailed and thorough Latin bass instructional we have seen. A must-have if you are, or would like to be, a bass player with Latin chops." - Descarga Magazine

"One of the most comprehensive studies published on Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian styles of bass playing. This book is a must for any serious student of the bass." - Latin Beat Magazine

"This is a very well-written book. As a drummer and percussionist, it has given me a wealth of information regarding these Latin styles. My students and I have especially enjoyed the excellent play-along CDs which feature a host of great players. I highly recommend this 'practical guide' to all instrumentalists, particularly rhythm section players." - Yoron Israel

"The Latin Bass Book is the finest work, in a practical approach, yet written. As a busy rhythm section clinician, I am thrilled to use and demonstrate this much-needed and complete text. Congratulations to Oscar and Chuck." - Ed Shaugnessy
