Afro Cuban Jazz Legends

Afro-Cuban jazz is an early form of Latin jazz that mixes Afro-Cuban rhythms with harmonies and musical timbre typical of Bebop. It was developed in the early 1940s by both Cuban musicians and Jazz musicians, with Dizzy Gillespie, Mario Bauza and Stan Kenton among some of the most notable contributors. The style was originally called “Cubop”. The original musical development largely took place in North America rather than Cuba itself, as Cuban musicians toured in New Orleans and other North American cities.
