One must be a musician to write about music. Scott Yanow clearly is not.

Books dedicated to subjects such as Afro-Cuban Jazz (or Latin Jazz) are a rare find. Unfortunately, their is not alot out there on the subject. Afro Cuban Jazz by Scott Yanow is, in my opinion, a mini-course on the subject. It begins with an overview, has brief biographies on the major figures in the music, recommends (and rates) recordings and has interviews with four prominent musicians: Paquito D' Rivera, Danilo Perez, Jane Bunnet, etc. For anyone who is interested in Afro-Cuban jazz and needs a road map, this is it. Aficionado's will learn a few facts as well. Lots of information, well organized and easy to read.
