As Latin rhythms became increasingly incoporated into jazz in the 1920s and 1930s, musicians added what was called a "Spanish tinge" to their music. With the Spanish-tinged numbers of Jelly Roll Morton and Buddy Bolden in New Orleans and the “in-clave” style developed by the musician known as Machito, the stage was set for the success of Latin jazz. Dance bands included tangos and the rumba in their repertoire, and after World War II, the samba, bossa nova and salsa music with its distinctive staccato rhythms became increasingly popular. Many of these rhythmic patterns also have African roots, hence the distinctive categories that exist within Latin jazz, Afro-Cuban and Afro-Brazilian jazz.
