Un demi siècle après la guerre hispano-américaine (1898), le jazz réalise sa première fusion avec la musique cubaine et brésilienne, témoignant ainsi de la diversité de ses origines.

2002 Kenny Barron est allé chercher l'inspiration du côté du Brésil, mais il produit là un jazz du Brésil bien loin des musiques cartes postales soleil et swing bossa nova. Barron s'est entouré du Trio da Paz : Romero Lubambo à la guitar, Nilson Matta à la basse, Duduka Da Fonseca à la batterie, mais aussi Anne Drummond à la flûte, Valtnonh aux percus. Un album agréable, que ne renieront pas les puristes du jazz ni ceux qui jouissent de la musique comme un plaisir immédiat.

1997. Showcasing the talents of premier Latin-jazz pianists Eddie Palmieri and Hilton Ruiz, this sampler/compilation contains five tracks apiece from Palmieri's Arete and Ruiz's Hands on Percussion. Palmieri's quintet of tunes starts with the hot and spicy "Don't Stop the Train," which is followed by Ruiz's classic "Mambo for Vibes" (written by and featuring Tito Puente). Palmieri's Afro-Cuban swinger "Definitely In" leads into Ruiz's ballad "Round About Midnight" (also featuring Puente). Two hip numbers follow -- Palmieri's "Crew" and Ruiz's take on Duke Ellington's "Cotton Tail." Then come Palmieri's slow mambo "Oblique" and Ruiz's simmering "Salute to Eddie." Palmieri's final entry, "Sixes in Motion," features a lengthy percussion intro by conga player Richie Flores and mad bongo man Paoli Mejias. Ruiz ends the CD with "Blues for Cos," a neat cha-cha featuring the otherworldly flute work of Dave Valentin. If you already own Arete and Hands on Percussion, there's not much need for this. However, the music here is programmed so well that it makes for a fascinating introduction to these two masterful players and their contrasting styles.
