Remember FOXY (Get Off, Hot Number). Well lead singer Ish Ladesma is Cubano, and that Latin Jazz runs through his veins as well. Check out this LATIN JAZZ song!

Latin-influenced jazz is characterized by Latin dance rhythms combined with jazz melodies and chord progressions. Latin influences began to enter mainstream American popular music in the 1930's. During the 1950's and 1960's these influences became particularly strong, with Latin dances such as the mambo, cha-cha-cha, samba, and bossa nova becoming extremely popular in the United States. Other Latin dances such as the salsa and merengue continue to be an influence today.

Latin music has its own unique sound. Eighth notes are played straight, not swung as in other style of jazz, but syncopation is still common. A wide variety of Latin percussion instruments also flavor the music. Congas are Afro-Cuban in origin, played with the palms of the hands and with the fingers. Bongos are also Afro-Cuban, but are higher-pitched and thinner in tone quality than congas. Other common instruments include timbales, claves, and cowbells.

Some bandleaders who infused a Latin element into their bands are Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Kenton. Other musicians who incorporate Latin elements into their music include Brazilian drummer Airto Moreira, Peruvian percussionist Alex Acuña, Cuban trumpeter, pianist, composer and protegé of Dizzy Gillespie Arturo Sandoval, pianist Eddie Palmieri, percussionists Tito Puente and Poncho Sanchez, bandleader Mario Bauza, trombonist Steve Turré, and alto saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera

hope this helps.

LATIN JAZZ Chulo!! Not Salsa, or Latin Music! FUSHION!! A Latin oriented blend with Jazz. Who is talking SALSA??? Not us!

great topic but Latin Jazz runs a parallel and overlaps with salsa...isn't it?

The concept of Afro-Cuban Jazz was mostly popularised by Dizzy Gillespie and bandleaders like Tito Puente in the early years...
In the 60's Mongo Santamaria was experimenting with a style of music that retrospectively seems inevitable. A mixture of Latin, Jazz and Soul, he called it Latin Boogaloo.

In the 80's and 90's bands like Masters at Work and Nu Yorican Soul worked in Latin, Jazz and Soul music and even blended Disco and Hip-hop and New Jazz into their music thus creating a Latin sound strongly associated with New York. Paquito D'Rivera, formerly of Cuba's big band Irakere has been known as an innovator of the Latin Jazz scene

just a few names that pop up immediately. I've always been a big supporter of the Latin Jazz sound in dj-sets. The older material blends beautifully with some newer productions coming from modern labels like Ubiquity, NuYorican Soul et al. And the Jazz Funk link from the Disco era is clear; Lonnie Liston Smith, Irakere, Willie Colon...

Eddy, great post. Lots of great music. Excellent job!-There was a musician named RICARDO MARRERRO in New York City in the 70's. I had his album, but it got stolen in 1981. Never seen or heard it again. THIS, is the best example of Latin Jazz I ever heard! He was called, "Ricardo Marrerro & The Group". I mentioned him here & there, but no-one responded. Let's try again. If you love Latin Jazz, go on a mission and find this "hidden Gem".

With muchas gracias to Costas in Greece, I will share this with you all. This is an example of Latin Jazz fusion. Some call this HOUSE. Whatever!
