This funky Latin crowd pleaser makes six musicians sound like many more, because of the full voicings that exploit the best registers of each instrument (especially when using the recorded instrumentation) and also because the piano and bass often play important counter lines, giving the impression that there's a bigger front line.
SOLOS: These changes are easy to master and will be invaluable to a player in future Latin music endeavors. There are plenty of II-Vs to sink your teeth into as well as many other staples of Latin harmony.

KENNY DORHAM (1924-1972). A founding member of The Jazz Messengers, along with Art Blakey, Horace Silver and Hank Mobley, Kenny replaced Clifford Brown in Max Roach's Quintet in 1956. Prior to that, he played with Dizzy Gillespie and Billy Eckstine and was part of Charlie Parker's group in 1948-1949. In the 1950s and '60s he made nearly 2 dozen records as a leader, including such Blue Note classics as "Whistle Stop," "Una Mas," and "Trompeta Toccata" (each with compositions of the same name), with sidemen including Joe Henderson, Tommy Flanagan, Paul Chambers, Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Hank Jones and Art Taylor. He later studied music at the graduate level at NYU and wrote film scores. His compositions, including Fair Weather, Lotus Blossom, Prince Albert and Blue Bossa, have been recorded by Clark Terry, Chet Baker, Freddie Hubbard, Art Farmer, Roy Hargrove, Nicholas Payton, Don Friedman, J.J. Johnson, Jimmy Heath, McCoy Tyner, Lou Donaldson, George Benson and by most of his former sidemen, among others.
