Sweet Sound of Latin Jazz


It's not exclusive, but inclusive, which is the whole spirit of jazz. Herbie Hancock
Unlike many musical genres, jazz by its own nature is a large tent that welcomes many forms and styles. latin jazz is not the exception and consequently, in latin jazz we usually find a broad assortment of musical influences and styles; often within the same song.
Try not to get caught up in judging a style of music for the moral/religious values/lifestyle that you might associate with it. Remember that stereotypes don't always apply, and learning to appreciate a style of music might give you a window into someone else's way of life and culture. Enjoy the music.

Batacumbele, an amazing outfit of musicians thoroughly steeped in Afro-Caribbean traditions and also fully conversant with the jazz idioms of the day, are a very important group in Puerto Rican history. The Latin jazz world is sometimes unappreciative of Puerto Rico's contributions to the world of Afro-Caribbean music, Featuring some of the day's best percussionists, including Giovanni Hidalgo, Richie Flores, and Angel "Cachete" Maldonado.
