From Cuba to Puerto Rico to New York, an irresistible music began brewing in the 1940s. Mixing bebop-based improvisations with Cuban & African rhythms, inventive musicians such as American trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie & Cuban conguero Chano Pozo created a sizzling jazz style that still evolves today. Through anecdotal biographies & evocative photos, this large & comprehensive book portrays every key Afro-Cuban Jazz innovator past & present, plus other jazz artists influenced by this infectious music. You’ll also find reviews & ratings of 500 recordings that make (or don’t make) the cut, & essays packed with historical insight. “The largest & most comprehensive book on Afro-Cuban Jazz ever published.” Black & white photos.
