Billy Martin of MMW's book Riddim was just released today. Focus on clave patterns based on traditional African/Carribean/South American rhythms. Getting my hands on that once work lets out.....

The best all around book in my opinion is:

Kim Plainfield - Advanced Concepts

It covers everything from linear playing, to afro-cuban, to polyrhythms

check it out....
