From Israel “Cachao’Lopez, Master Sessions Vol. I (1994):

In 1939, the first mambo was called “Mambo!” It is derived from the most classical of Cuban rhythms, the danzon. Out of the Danzon also came the chachacha-and a little later another first by Cachao, the descarga, also called the Cuban jam session.

And what is this dance called danzon? It’s a rhythm, its a beat, it’s a mode-and believe it or not, it originated in England. Writes George Eliot in his novel Adam Bede in 1859,”...and now the music struck up and the glorious country dance, best of all dances, began.”

Writes the Cuban novelist, Cirilio Villaverde in his novel, Cecilia Valdes in 1882: “Above the din of the orchestra with it’s riotous timbales, one could hear, perfectly in tune with the music, the monotonous, never ending chis chas of the dancer’s feet, without which…people believe, you cannot follow the exacting beat of La Danza Creole.”

The country dance, so fetching to Eliot, became popular in other European countires-and in America. Because of the traditional difficulty the French have with the English language, the country dance became in France la contredance or contrary dance. As such, it travelled to the French colonies in the Caribbean, to Santo Domingue precisely, which was then the most prosperous European colony in the Americas. A slave revolt transformed the rich island into Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world(1859).

When the black revolutionaries expelled all the whites, the French colonials took with them their know-how as coffee planters, and their slaves and their music to neighboring Cuba. In Oriente, the closest province to Haiti, they planted coffee again, rebuilt their lives and their bonnes maisons and danced the country dance now twice removed . The country dance, quite contrary, became fad and fashion in Santiago de Cuba and this French thing acquired a “Spanish tinge,” to borrow the phrase from Jelly Roll Morton, the man who called himself jazz.

The French dance became the Cuban contradanza, from which derived the danza that Villaverde saw danced. It became the habanera when it travelled across the island to Havana. The habanera we know thanks to Bizet—who called it habañera, with connotation with the bathtub, bañera. Ah, the French and foreign names!

From the danza the danzon evolved “quite naturally…” in 19th century Cuba.

The danzon, as Scott Joplin said of the ragtime, “should never be played fast.” It was played slow, slower than Joplin’s rags even. It was a music “to dance on a single tile,” as old dancers all did. To many Europeans the danzon is a rondo capriccioso, for it’s last section is lively and fast. It used to come right after the music stopped to give the ladies time to fan away their ardor. The first part of a danzon is some sort of sonata for dancing. The orchestra is small; but, the rhytm section is comprised of timbales, a piano, and the double bass, that sounded like a bumbass sometimes. Cachao has developed a stilo brillante so striking, that it was considered impossible once.

He went from the traditional forms to create the mambo, which revolutionized Cuban music first and later even the way Cubans danced. The mambo was fast; but, fast was it’s choreography. With the descargas, Cachao changed how popular muscians played, in group improvisations and in solos. Of course, the mambos that are still heard, created mainly by Perez Prado (a pianist and arranger with Stan Kenton, then) have little in common with the danzon, “Mambo.” This is in fact an Un-mambo. Perez Prado played mambo in big bands, the so called jazz bands, because they included saxophones and trombones. It was Perez Prado who first gave that primeval cry to the mambo that intrigued Gwen Verdon so much. Perez Prado used to say that his ensemble was a Big Band. He had several number one hits in the American charts in the 50’s; but, his moment of glory came when Fellini chose his mambo “Patricia” for Anita Ekberg (dressed as a friar) to become a hymn to her in “La Dolce Vita.”

The descarga (which could mean to unload or to release an electric bolt) was another direction the mambo took under Cachao as composer and leader, with the best musicians available playing for fun after hours. They did it for their own pleasure and not money. Fortunately, some of the best descargas were recorded at the time(50s) and that master class, Como su Ritmo no hay dos (Cachao: Like His Rhythm There Is No Other) is highlight of Andy Garcia’s documentary concert film…

Excerpt from the liner notes written by G. Cabrera Infante, 1994.

Thus, the Cuban Jam Sessions were formed in the 50s and the rest is History.

The Contradanza is also referred to a the French Minuet in some literature about Cuban Danzon.
