The vibrant sound of Latin Jazz was not just the folk process. In the decade between 1946 and 1956, Dizzy Gillespie, Mario Bauza, Chano Pozo, and 'Mambo King' Tito Puente brought this irresistible mix to the world. Wendell Pierce hosts as bassist Carlos Henriquez leads the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with conguero Giovanni Hidalogo and drummer Ignacio Berroa in these Jazz Latin classics, including 'Manteca,' 'Ran Kan Kan,' 'Oye Como Va' and more.
