Three Afro-Cuban Jazz Moods. Dizzy Gillespie And Machito Three - Afro-Cuban Jazz Moods (Cass, Album, Dol). 2310 771. Dizzy Gillespie Y Machito.
Afro-Cuban jazz is the earliest form of Latin jazz. It mixes Afro-Cuban clave-based rhythms with jazz harmonies and techniques of improvisation. Afro-Cuban jazz emerged in the early 1940s with the Cuban musicians Mario Bauzá and Frank Grillo "Machito" in the band Machito and his Afro-Cubans in New York City.
Dizzy Gillespie is considered to be one of the greatest jazz trumpeters and band leaders of all time. In 1975 he collaborated with Latin American musician Machito and his band the Afro-Cubans to create the album Afro-Cuban Jazz Moods. Each track follows a similar format to most other jazz records - the main idea is played by the ensemble and then soloists take turns in improvising. Jazz records often feature the following qualities: melodies are syncopated and repetitive, often with long sustained notes - Pensativo typifies this style in the head melody. Gillespie’s solos are influenced by bebop and are highly complex.
