From the Isle of Music, April 15-21:
April is Jazz Appreciation Month around the world, and we are going to celebrate by taking a look at some of the roots of modern Cuban Jazz in both Cuba and the United States. This week, we are going to listen to some important and historic recordings made in the United States as what we now call Afro Cuban Jazz was being born.
