We explore the roots of bebop first planted by Dizzy Gillespie in the Latin jazz featured in his later work. Gillespie’s compositions “Con Alma,” “Manteca,” and “Salt Peanuts” will be featured along with works by composers associated with Gillespie’s career such as Cab Calloway, Arturo Sandoval, Tito Puente, Chuck Mangione, Esperanza Spalding, and Paquito de Rivera.
