The ultimate CD review guide to the irresistible music that blends bebop with Cuban and African rhythms.
From Cuba to Puerto Rico to New York, an irresistible music began brewing in the 1940s. Mixing bebop-based improvisations with Cuban and African rhythms, inventive musicians such as American trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie and Cuban conguero Chano Pozo created a sizzling jazz style that still evolves today. Through anecdotal biographies and evocative photos, this book portrays every key Afro-Cuban jazz innovator past and present, plus other jazz artists influenced by this infectious music. You'll also find reviews and ratings of recordings that make (or don't make) the cut, and essays packed with historical insight not found in other guides.
Profiles and reviews include: Gato Barbieri, Wllie Bobo, Cachao, Stan Kenton, Machito, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Poncho Sanchez, Arturo Sandoval, Mongo Santamaria, Cal Tjader, Chucho Valdés and dozens more.
