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.
