Afro-Cuban music evolved into one of the great musical traditions of the twentieth century. Trompeta: Chappott'n, Chocolate, and the Afro-Cuban Trumpet Style provides a comprehensive history of mainstream Cuban music, examining the music of all its eras from the perspective of two seminal trumpet players: Fzlix Chappott'n and Alfredo Chocolate Armenteros. One or the other was present at almost every significant turning point in the stylistic development of Cuban music. An overview of the entire Afro-Cuban genre and its development is provided, as well as an in-depth examination of both Chappott'n's and Armenteros' performance styles.
