Review - Tito Puente’s Live at the 1977 Monterey Jazz Festival
Both as a performer and composer, Tito Puente (1923-2000), had an illustrious career as a warm, flashy, grandiose recording and touring artist. His Live at the 1977 Monterey Jazz Festival is a perfect example of this. It is a remarkable selection of the undeniably charming, and amazingly talented Puente. Fascinating the crowd and getting them involved Puente also takes on the role of playing timbales, the vibraphone, as well as vocals. The highlights on this set include “Oye Como Va,” the lively “Para Los Rumberos,” and the incredible musicianship on “El Rey Del Timbal.” This album is sure to add nice addition to any library of Latin music. Be sure to check out and preview this album at Amazon.com!
