Latin Jazz: The First Edition

Latin Jazz: The First Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Latin influences on jazz began way back in New Orleans, where Spanish settlers mixed with French, Creoles, and African-Americans to create the first jazz sounds. Jelly Roll Morton spoke of the importance of "the Latin tinge", and since his time Latin musicians have added their own flavorings to jazz music. Now, for the first time, author John Storm Roberts tells the full story of the great Latin jazz musicians including Tito Puente, Ray Baretto, Astrid Gilberto, Chick Corea, and dozens more. The book covers the many centers of Latin Jazz activity, from New York's barrios to the West Coast of America, Brazil, Cuba, and Latin America. Richly illustrated with photographs, this book helps explain the phenomenal growth of Latin-influenced popular music.

Book News Annotation:

Examines in depth the long-standing influence of Latin music on jazz. Details the early influence of Latin styles on the birth of the musical form, and the continuing cross- pollination of Brazilian, Cuban, Argentinean, and Mexican music with American jazz. Profiles such key Latin jazz musicians as Tito Puente, Astrid Gilberto, Chick Corea and others, as well as Anglo and Black musicians who were deeply influenced by Latin music, such as Stan Getz and Dizzy Gillespie.
