Afro-Cuban jazz is the earliest form of Latin jazz. It mixes Afro-Cuban clave-based rhythms with jazz harmonies and techniques of improvisation. Afro-Cuban jazz emerged in the early 1940s with the Cuban musicians Mario Bauzá and Frank Grillo "Machito" in the band Machito and his Afro-Cubans in New York City.

Herbie Mann with Machito & His Afro-Cuban Jazz Ensemble. First off, apologies for the funny 10 second intro to the sound clip. Today’s record is the smokin’ hot Afro-Cuban jazz album ‘Afro-Jazziac’ (see what they did there?) composed entirely by Herbie Mann and performed with the dynamic Cuban band leader par excellence Machito, and his Afro-Cuban Jazz Ensemble. Released in 1969, this slightly tacky pressing is a ‘Vamp Series’ reissue of the original 1958 Roulette release entitled ‘Machito and his Afro-Cuban Jazz Ensemble- With Flute to Boot!’ (Far superior cover too). Herbie Mann doesn’t even get a look in where the record’s title is concerned back in 1958, being a still wet behind the ears Johnny-come-lately.
