Latino Music Greats | A Little Bit of that CuBop Sound
CLIENT: ZGS COMMUNICATIONS, INC.
Producer, creator, writer, director of Emmy award-winning, nationally syndicated music documentary, "Latino Music Great." This doc chronicles the under-told story of the Latin American music journey and its indelible mark on society and global culture from jazz to salsa.
This featured segment, "A Little Bit of that CuBop Sound" examines the height of the early 1940s, 50s and 60s when an innovative fusion of propulsive rhythms and spirited sounds of Latin and jazz music exploded in America later known as the "CuBop Sound."
During this time, trailblazing Latin artists such as Mario Bauza, Tito Puente and Frank "Machito" Grillo helped forge a genre and sound that paved the way for other legendary jazz and bebop giants including Dizzy Gillespie, Paquito D'Rivera, Arturo Sandoval and Wynton Marsalis, among many others. Today, this musical improvisation continues to thrive and expand the global jazz movement.
