Home JT Archives Trompeta: Chappott’n, Chocolate and the Afro-Cuban Trumpet Style by Rick Davies. Trompeta: Chappott’n, Chocolate and the Afro-Cuban Trumpet Style by Rick Davies. Published December 1, 2003April 25, 2019 – By Javier Quinones. The social and historical placement of this book is not an unearthing of rarities amidst seldom-investigated musical fissures. There is no evidence, for example, of Davies having consulted scholars such as Fernando Ortiz, John Blacking or even A. M. Jones when dealing with African elements in Cuban trumpet styles, which is an important part of his theses.

This book provides a deep and comprehensive analysis of the rhithmical structure of afro-cuban music. Just perfect to understand latin and afro-cuban music ! David not only gives the rythms, but almost deduce them mathematically. Such a serious study is much needed on this field of knowledge.

The main emphasis in this book is on Alfredo "Chocolate" Armenteros. Davies also looks at the work of Chappottin, but to a lesser degree. The best part of the book for a layperson is the interview with Chocolate included in the appendix. The interview is in Spanish, with an English translation. This book is especially good for music students interested in the Cuban trumpet style. There is practically nothing, however, on two other significant Cuban trumpeters, El Negro Vivar and Jorge Varona. Still, this is a minor quibble. Davies had done a great service to all of us who love Cuban music, and also to the underdocumented Chocolate Armenteros.

Trompeta is one of the best academic studies of Afro-Cuban and salsa music in print. Following roughly in the Gunther Schuller tradition, the author does an in-depth analysis of the music and especially the trumpet style. Although the book does present a fairly thorough overview of the history of the music, it is not for the faint-hearted.

Its primary strength is its exhaustive solo by solo and bar by bar study of the playing of Chappottin and Chocolate. An interesting byproduct of the book is the interview with Chocolate, which is presented in Spanish and with an English translation.

If you are looking for strictly anecdotal material and an easy read, this book is not for you. However, if you want a book that presents a thorough musical presentation of this great tradition you can't do better than Trompeta
