Prior to the initial collaboration between Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo resulting in Afro-Cuban jazz during 1947, latin dance music and jazz were initially very separate styles of music with not very much in common. By the 1960s New York City gave birth to the first true Salsa music in America with jazz and Latin musicians collaborating with one another. Some of the most notable performers responsible for the creation of the "New York" sound are Ray Barretto, Eddie Palmieri, Charlie Palmieri, Johnny Pacheco and Willie Colon.The fusion between Puerto Rico and New York's salsa music with jazz was stated through the music of Papo Lucca and Ray Barretto, who not only fused both styles but created an innovative and appealing sound of Latin music.
This project report is an examination of the techniques, instrumentation, and musicians that Lucca and Barretto used with their bands during the 1960s and 70s. Personal transcriptions of tunes recorded by Lucca and Barretto will be analyzed and compared to earlier versions of these same songs, with the purpose of highlighting the fusion of salsa traditions with jazz harmonies. These transcriptions will then be used to rearrange a traditional Latin tune with contemporary jazz techniques and harmonies.
