Title JALC Radio - Con Alma
Season 11, Episode 13
Airdate 20/05/2004
Hosted by Ed Bradley
Machito’ was known as "the Duke Ellington of Afro-Cuban jazz." In the 1940's, he led New York's top "Latin" dance band --- but he also forged a new music from Afro-Cuban rhythms and jazz. The sophistication and energy of that combination took his band from the dance hall to the concert hall. And like Duke Ellington, Machito's music was always made "con alma" --- with soul.
