Africa and Latin America together have moulded American popular music since the beginning of the twentieth century. African influences have led to the development of jazz, gospel and blues while successive waves of dance music from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Jamaica have largely determined its rhythm. Dance forms and musical stylings such as habanera, bolero, tango, rumba, conga, samba, baion, calypso, mambo, charleston, cha-cha-cha, bossa nova and twistall have their origins outside the USA. This compilation aims to demonstrate just how far back the roots of Latin jazz stretch, well beyond the partnership that Dizzy Gillespie forged with Chano Pozo in founding cubop, the post-war marriage of bebop with Cuban music.

Another production of Command Records, one of the essential marks of Enoch Light, edited this time in 1960 and continues with the unmistakable style of this great of the 60's. Under his leadership this album brings together 12 vibrant tracks around the style of 'cha-cha-cha'. Some of the cuts are typically based in Latin music. Other compositions originally come away from the cha-cha style. In any case the album offers a wonderful atmosphere to hear or dance cha-cha-cha. Music is always magical by Enoch Light.
