AbstractAlthough there is a substantial variety of educational materials that generally address jazz, improvised, harmonic moment, composition and orchestral arrangements, there is very little analysis of Cuban composers of music for Afro-Cuban jazz ensembles. The paper focuses on transcription, analysis of the background of the works selected by Chucho Valdes for the group Irakere, with emphasis on the selected passages for the rhythmic-harmonic section. Fundamental elements of Cuban music, including the executions of the clave formulas, the African rhythmic cells that subsequently influenced the bebop style, the Cuban vocabulary and dance music are addressed and provide the basis for analysis.
