Jan. 7, 1915 - Dec. 3, 1948


This recording of "Manteca" was made in 1947 by Dizzy Gillespie's Band featuring the tunes co-author Chano Pozo on drums.

Chano Pozo was a drummer, dancer, singer and songwriter. Blending his Cuban background and style into the jazz of the 40s and 50s, he was one of the most important figures in the development of Latin jazz.

During his lifetime he recorded with Miguelito Valdés and Arsenio Rodríguez.

He had a strong influence on Dizzy Gillespie's trumpet style and compositions, playing with Dizzy for a short period before Chano's untimely death at only 33.
