Despite the Latin American character of this piece one mustn't forget that Dizzy Gillespie was a jazz musician and, besides, one of the founders of be-bop style together with Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk. So the theme - and the subsequent improvisations even more so - are in swing style, though maybe not as pushy or energetic as, for example, Count Basie. Following a big introduction, the theme appears in simple ternary form followed by an expanded set of variations on the main theme. There is then a reprise and a coda.
This sheet music is for two pianos, four hands.
