A global music, transcultural in its stylistic scope, jazz embodies a nexus of intercultural exchange where African American musical traditions are blended with Latin American and Caribbean forms. The musicians operating in this scene navigate a stylistic continuum, with a sphere consisting of South and Central American and Caribbean folk, traditional, dance, and popular forms, as well as jazz forms and performance practices. The notion of interculturality is helpful for understanding what is happening in this in-between space—variously titled Latin jazz, Afro-Latin jazz, Afro-Cuban jazz, Cubop, Caribbean jazz, and Jazz Latin—where cultural difference and commonality is negotiated, challenged, and explored. This study examines this pendular, self-positioning discourse through case studies of two musicians, Arturo O'Farrill and Ray Barretto.
