Talk:Afro-Cuban jazz

This article is so...outdated, why do people think that latin jazz is in the past? there are still very great latin jazz composers such as alain perez, and pequeno johnny. some of which are very young kids...

this article is replete with incorrect and/or missing information...for instance ..there is NO musical style called SALSA from Cuba. Salsa was a marketing term used to revive a once thriving MAMBO market in the NYC area.


I started a new section on important albums, I just put the two I can think of off the top of my head, but certainly there are more.

Miles and Trane?[edit]

I don't seem to recall either of them playing Afro Cuban style. Some specific recordings plase?(ALV) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 14:03, 4 January 2007 (UTC).

title of article[edit]

A more neutral title would be Cuban jazz, as a satellite article in the Cuban music category. Cuban music has, at least from 1800, been one of the best-integrated forms of music, with all kinds of orchestras, bands and groups having multi-racial membership. In this respect it is different from music in some other parts of the world. What a pity, then, to use a title which goes out if its way to underline the African heritage (which, of course, I agree was, and is, important). Cuban jazz groups have always had black, mixed race and white musicians, and the music itself is a fusion. This is the reason why Cuban jazz would be a more inclusive, and better title.

Reliable sources call it Afro-Cuban jazz. The musicians called it Afro-Cuban jazz. And albums were titled Afro-Cuban jazz. SilkTork *Tea time 13:04, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Important Albums[edit]

Why are these the important albums?

Why is Sebastian Schunke here? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hyphessobrycon (talkcontribs) 03:45, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

I recommend removing the Sebastian Schunke album.Dr clave (talk) 15:40, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

bad English grammer and incorrect information[edit]

Someone re-wrote some important paragraphs concerning the definition of the genre and the song "Manteca." It appears that English is not the first language of this person, so I can understand why perhaps they misunderstood what was written. Dizzy himself said that Chano Pozo created the guajeos in the intro of Manteca. The statement does not mean that Chano invento guajeos, merely that Chano created the intro. Chano did not arrange the song. Before you make any more changes, it would be best to discuss the issues here I believe. Dr clave (talk) 05:00, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

"manteca" was the first jazz STANDARD to be based on clave. If you know of an earlier tune, please name it here and don't erase the text in the article. Thank you.Dr clave (talk) 05:02, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
