Latin Roots: Essential Latin Jazz

Machito, Jose Mangual and Carlos Vidal in 1947.
Machito, Jose Mangual and Carlos Vidal in 1947.

We welcome record producer Aaron Luis Levinson back to World Cafe's Latin Roots: Essentials series. This week, Levinson offers up his essential Latin jazz picks, starting with Duke Ellington's version of "Caravan." The song, written by Puerto Rican trombonist Juan Tizol, is a classic of the genre — one of the most enduring melodies in jazz, Latin music and beyond.

Further explore the world of Latin jazz at Levinson's Spotify playlist.
