It is the force which drives all human beings to achieve, to strive and to make their dreams come true.The story of Latin Percussion, Inc. is the passion of one man. A passion which drove him to create, innovate and unmistakably change the face of percussion forever. In 1956 a young mechanical engineer and avid photographer from the Bronx named Martin Cohen happened upon New York's famous Birdland jazz club. He walked in and was greeted by the sounds of Cal Tjader's hot Latin jazz. Cohen was so taken by the infectious music that he became a regular at the Monday night jam sessions, which were headed by flutist Herbie Mann with percussionists like Candido and Jose Mangual. It was Mangual in particular who was an inspiration to Cohen. Up until then, there was no role model that exemplified greatness, Cohen said. That's what I saw in Mangual, and that's what I wanted to be, somebody who had that mastery of something. Cohen became a student of the 1960's Latin scene, and soon wanted his own set of bongos. It was then that he learned about the politics of Latin percussion. Because of the government-imposed trade embargo against Cuba, finding good instruments in the United States was a difficult prospect at best. This obstacle did not dull the passion of young Cohen, however, and he put his engineering skills to use and created his own set of bongos. Using photos of Johnny Pacheco's bongos, he created his first prototype. Of course, practice makes perfect, and this first attempt was not exactly flawless. This was the beginning of my learning, Cohen said. I knew nothing about machining or about wood or metal working. The first wood bongo shell was cut on Friday, and by Monday it was a quarter of an inch smaller. I didn't realize it was wet wood which was cut and that it had to dry first. Undeterred by this initial setback, Cohen was soon delivering bongos and cowbells to musicians in brown paper bags, soliciting feedback and using the Latin nightclubs as his research and development labs. Cohen's self-described love affair with Latin music led to a tradition still in place at LP; the needs of performing musicians are placed ahead of everything else. Eventually Cohen received a contract to make cowbells for Rogers Drums and continued to sell bongos on consignment. He made a set of claves for Charlie Palmieri and he designed wood blocks and sound effects for Carroll Sound. The influence of two prominent television drummers helped to widen Cohen's focus from the dance hall to the recording studio. Cohen met Specs Powell, the drummer with the Ed Sullivan Show and staff musician for CBS. Cohen recalls Powell telling him to get out of the Latin dance halls and into the studios where the real money was. Powell asked Cohen to make him a pair of bongos and also to create a bongo stand so Powell could play them standing up. Cohen fashioned a mounting system without having to drill into the shell of the drum, thereby keeping the tone pure. Powell was happy with Cohen's work, and introduced him to Bob Rosegarden, who was then the drummer for The Tonight Show. Rosegarden asked Cohen to create an instrument that would replicate the sound of the traditional horse jawbone with rattling teeth. Cohen's modern-day version of the jawbone, called the Vibra-Slap, became the company's first patent. Rosegarden also asked Cohen to make a mo

Latin America and Its People, Single Volume Edition, Second Edition Cheryl Martin and Mark Wasserman Offering a balance of social, political, environmental, and cultural history, Latin America and Its People examines the whole of Latin America in a thematic rather than country-by-country approach. This engaging textbook emphasizes the stories of the diverse people of Latin America, their everyday lives, and the issues that affect them. Written by two of the leading scholars in the field, Cheryl Martin and Mark Wasserman, Latin America and Its People presents a fresh interpretative survey of Latin American history from pre-Columbian times to the beginning of the twenty-first century. It examines the many institutions that Latin Americans have built and rebuilt - families, governments, churches, political parties, labor unions, schools, and armies - through the lives of the people who forged these institutions. Features “How Historians Understand” essays with critical thinking questions give students insight into how historians work and also examine how historical information is used and sometimes transformed according to the issues of the time. “Slice of Life” vignettes with critical thinking questions take students to the scene of the action, illustrating the living conditions and social pressures during a particular time in history. 'Latin American Lives” biographical essays with discussion questions focus on famous and not famous individuals and illustrate key points within the chapter. “Learning More About Latin Americans” sections at the end of each chapter offer suggestions for further reading for students interested in pursuing research projects on the lives of Latin Americans. Key Words defined in the text appear in the end-of-text Glossary and provide students with an additional resource for study. New to this Edition Two new “Slice of Life” features: “The Indians of Oaxtepec Defend Their Land and Water” shows how the indigenous people of one village in Mexico ensured their community’s survival through creative adaptations to the cash economy and legal maneuvers. “On the Streets of Nuevo Laredo” describes the lives of cartoneros, or cardboard pickers, and provides graphic insight into the informal economy in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. Two new “Latin American Lives”: Chapter 8 now contains a biography of Jose Antonio Aponte, a free black carpenter from Havana who was executed for allegedly fomenting a slave uprising in 1812. A biography of Luis Terrazas, political boss of Chihuahua, Mexico and the leading landowner and cattle raiser in Mexico at the time of the Revolution, is also now included. Eleven new color plates provide students with an opportunity to visually analyze and interpret the history of Latin America. Chapter content is updated throughout, adding depth and breadth with the latest scholarship and research.
