i found this frustratingly void of human drama - the stories of the musicians behind the music - which is what i thought it would be more about. but the performances were impressive. what really grabbed me was the dvd extras doco on the history of latin jazz - more interesting than the main film.

Latin Jazz in all its color, passion and fury. Fantastic numbers from some of the greatest musicians of the genre.

Feels pretty incomplete with almost no background or context but still a neat way to expose yourself to some new and interesting music. The performances are mostly just as interest, if not more interesting, to watch as they are to listen to.

Now, that's an excellent film about a fascinating genre of music. You will hear fusion of jazz with flamenco or Cuban music and even bossa-nova. All the musicians are full of life and energy. Unfortunately, you won't learn much about the genealogy of the genre but the DVD edition fixes this problem with a great documentary as an extra.

Giovanni Hidalgo is amazing playing with Tito Puente. Excellent improvisation from Bebo Valdez and his son Chucho. Patato on the congas. A must see!

A slice of Latin Jazz beautifully shown through the most appropriate vehicle: the music itself. With vibrant shots of the musicians executing their craft, this film is one of the best of its genre, and is a must for latin, jazz, and music enthusiasts in general. Seeing, hearing and experiencing the connection between Michel Camilo and his trio, and the journey take the listener on from soft tenderness to drunken all-abandon, is alone sufficient to make this film a classic.

Afrocuban or Latin Jazz? Cubop? This is an example where vicious efforts of naming and labeling don't matter at all. Just Listen and you will know why finally Paquito gets wide-deserved credit!
