We remember Tito Puente (1923-2000)


Like many of you, I’ve spent a few hours of my life listening to the music of Tito Puente.     He was born on this day in 1923 and became quite a musical pioneer, mixing musical styles with Latin sounds and experimenting in fusing Latin music with jazz.
Ernesto Antonio "Tito" Puente was born in New York City, the son of Puerto Rican immigrants and already playing music by age 13.
Tito Puente won 5 Grammys, including “Homenaje a Beny“, a tribute to Beny More:
