The best kept secret in music



Even without the huge banner of El Rey hanging behind the orchestra, Tito Puente's contribution to this music is ever present here; a huge force and quality that has a life of its own.


Latin Big Band sound at its best. The Palladium's days don't seem too far away. Former members of the Tito Puente Orchestra shine on this forceful recording. A gem for the passionate listener and especially for the motivated dancer. -
