Jazz a la Cuba was an incredible find for music film buffs like me
9 February 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Jazz a la Cuba, a musical short, was another find on the "Hollywood Rhythm Vol. 1: The Best of Jazz and Blues". In fact, it was a special bonus short. Featuring Don Aspiazu (who also directed) and His Famous Cuban Orchestra, all they do is perform their number while we see dissolves of his homeland, pre-Castro, with the sight of the former Capitol building in Havana a particular highlight. Then near the end, a young man and woman are dancing to the infectious beat for the finish. According to IMDb, this seems to be the Orchestra's only film appearance so I'm glad this has been preserved for posterity for anyone like me curious about this sort of thing. Highly recommended.
