2009 two CD collection from the King of Latin Music. Tito Puente was
one of the most memorable entertainers of the 20th century in any
genre. As a composer, musician and band leader, the NYC native of
Puerto Rican heritage was embraced by Americans of all colors for his
exciting fusion of Afro-Cuban and Caribbean sounds tailor-made for the
dance floor. Tito Puente remains a cultural icon whose appeal
transcends demographics. His career spanned more than 50 years and 100
albums, his composition 'Oye Como Va' was made famous by Santana, and
his memorable appearances on The Cosby Show, The Mambo Kings and The
Simpsons all contributed to his legend. The image of the flamboyant
superstar, dubbed 'el Rey', playing his signature timbales is familiar
to every generation of Americans. He remains the most famous name in
all of Latin music.
