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.
