Tito Puente has long championed Latin-jazz, a combination of Latin percussion and rhythms with bebop-oriented jazz. This release from the Concord Picante label serves as a perfect introduction to his music. For this date Puente (who performs on timbales and marimba) uses six horns, piano, bass, synthesizer and three other percussionists to play everything from «Donna Lee» and «Stompin’ at the Savoy» to his own exotic originals.

Produced by Carl Jefferson, John Burk and Tito Puente
