Mario Bauza

Born:

When Prudencio Mario Bauzá stepped off the boat from Havana onto the docks in New York, in 1930, he brought with him a sophisticated knowledge of Cuban music, and a respect and penchant for American jazz. He would be a key figure in the integration of both musical principals and come to be known as “the father of Latin Jazz”. Born in the Cayo Hueso section of La Habana, Cuba, on Apr. 28, 1911, Mario had a special musical talent, and began formal lessons as a child. He studied music at the Municipal Academy of Cuba, and by the age of nine was clarinetist at the Havana Philharmonic Orchestra, where he remained for three years

Lolly Allen: Coming Home

Read "Coming Home" reviewed by Jack Bowers


There was a time, and it wasn't that long ago, when women in jazz—apart from singers and the occasional pianist—were seen by many observers as unsolicited interlopers whose impact in what was essentially a male bastion could be no more than minimal at best.

Arturo O'Farrill, Chucho Valdes: Familia: Tribute to Bebo & Chico

Read "Familia: Tribute to Bebo & Chico" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Dizzy Gillespie ricordava con amarezza il modo con cui la critica jazz aveva trattato la sua collaborazione col conguero Chano Pozo, giudicandola un'eccentricità marginale. Il trombettista la giudicava invece il momento culminante della sua carriera. Quell'atteggiamento verso il cosiddetto Latin Jazz è ancora diffuso e il multiforme terreno d'incontro tra jazz e musiche dei caraibi è ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
