Partido Alto

Composer(s): 

While this entry refers to a specific Partido Alto played during a live Dizzy Gillespie session, it should be noted (as described in detail through the below link) that the term 'partido alto' generally refers to a type of samba that consists of much improvisation. That is, 'Partido Alto' is like saying 'a jam in a samba rhythm'.
