Mario Bauzá

sax, tr, 1911-1993 US, Havana
Musician / Arranger of Jazz and Latin

Mario Bauzá (April 28, 1911 – July 11, 1993) was a Afro-Cuban jazz musician. He was one of the first to introduce Latin music to the United States by bringing Cuban musical styles to the New York City jazz scene. While Cuban bands had popular jazz tunes in their repertoire for years, Bauzá's composition "Tangá" was the first piece to blend jazz with clave, and is considered the first true Afro-Cuban jazz or Latin jazz tune.
