From NPR:
” Jazz musicians have long mined Broadway, the Great American Songbook, and even pop music for material. Here are five Latin interpretations of songs written by jazz musicians, a process that isn’t as easy as playing the chords of a jazz composition over a mambo rhythm. The real gold in the Latin jazz library comes from clever interpretations of songs that lend themselves to the intricate meter of Afro-Cuban music. “
