I'm in the process of using a midi sequencer to provide me with simple background (drums, bass line, bare minimum piano harmony) to practice improvising on Spain (Chick Corea). From listening to a number of recordings in this latin jazz style, it seems to be common for the bass player to anticipate the chord changes by playing the root of the chord of the next measure on the last beat of the current measure, like:
Two closely related question:
should the piano part behave in a similar fashion and anticipate the F#7 on the last beat of bar 2?
should the soloist do the same?
