Lazaro's mention of Dizzy gave me an idea...some trivia for fun...

Dizzy was in a band with the great Mario Bauza and this is when Diz started experimenting with Afro Cuban music. Obviously an important development in jazz. Who's band was it? Easy one... 

Duke Ellington's first work in film was short "Black and Tan" in 1929 but it was the next film in 1930 that really exposed his orchestra to a much wider audience. They went to Hollywood to appear. What was the film? Perhaps not so... 

No internet peeking....
