The godfather of Afro-Cuban music, Mario Bauza, and his fellow countrymen Machito, Chano Pozo, and Cachao were the early innovators who first showed Latin musicians how to swing and bop, and at the same time taught the great jazz artists like Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker how to play the intricate polyrhythms of Cuba. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will explore the early breakthrough hits "Tanga” and “Manteca," the development of the mambo and the cha-cha-cha years later, and the enduring legacy of these explosive, technicolorful musical pioneers.
