Mambo Merengue provides an introduction to the world of jazz: its rhythms, harmony and melodic shapes. The pieces demonstrate a variety of jazz styles: latin, blues, bebop, modal, swing and modern. Mambo is believed to be a Haitian Creole word literally meaning to talk. Now mambo is a type of dance derived from the Cuban rumba. Consequently the word combines two of the most appealing aspects of jazz: musical conversation and physical movement.
