Product Description & Reviews

Ten seminal Latin Jazz albums - Mambo, Cha Cha Cha and Rhumba from New York and Cuba. Featuring legendary musicians like Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puente, Charlie Parker, Machito, Cal Tjader, Herbie Mann, Bebo Valdés and many more. In the no man s land between the elegant nightclubs of Havana, even before the days of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, and the jazz clubs of 52nd Street in New York, a seed was sown in the 40s already, which blossomed into something which we refer to today as ''Latin Jazz . It might have been inevitable, but it defi nitely was unbelievable to hear and feel what happened when the ''Afro-Cuban'' rhythms of the Caribbean island met the escapades of modern jazz bebop innovators like Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. However, the erstwhile experiment soon developed into a separate genre with its own stars and stylists. The ten full-lengths of the Original Album Collection ''Latin Jazz'' present the most important interpreters of this music and its most beautiful albums on 10 CDs. From Dizzy Gillespie s ''Afro'' from 1954 up to Bebo Valdés ''Cuban Dance Party'' of 1959. In between you will fi nd Latin American legends such as Chico O Farrill, Machito, Mongo Santamaria, Perez Prado, and Tito Puente next to North American jazz heroes such as Charlie Parker, Woody Herman, or Herbie Mann. The energy and the strong emotion of this music are as strong as ever and maybe even more contagious.
