Dizzy, Chano and Chico — The Original Influencers 75 Years Later at Town Hall

[New York] – The Afro Latin Jazz Alliance & The Town Hall Present: Dizzy, Chano and Chico — The Original Influencers — 75 Years Later at Town Hall. A celebration of the monumental moments when jazz met the rhythms of Cuba and changed the face of modern music forever. In 1947, legends Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo composed “Manteca” — one of the earliest foundational compositions of Afro-Cuban jazz and among Gillespie’s most famous recordings. In December ’47, Dizzy and Chano performed it live at the famed Town Hall in New York City. Consecutively, composer Chico O’Farrill’s masterpiece “Afro Cuban Jazz Suite” brought together bandleader Machito with O’Farrill and Charlie Parker, among others. O’Farrill’s work to meld modern jazz with Cuban big band continued with his collaboration with Dizzy on “The Manteca Suite.” ALJA and Town Hall celebrate Dizzy, Chano and Chico for their groundbreaking introduction of Latin music influences in jazz.
