The classic Tico 78 RPM recordings of Tito Puente and his Orchestra and Quartet (1949-1955) are remastered and carefully assembled by Joe Conzo (a Puente confidant and historian). Nobody had recorded so many singles at that time. Yet many of these recordings have never been available on CD until now. These recordings showcase the true genius of Tito Puente, documenting his transition from conjunto bandleader to big band arranger, composer, conductor and creator of a sound that became popular throughout the world. The songs included in this two-CD/40-track release package will set your dancing feet on fire. Among the many gems here are Tito's selfpenned 'Mambo Macoco,' 'Mambolero,' featuring Vicentico Valds on vocals, the Latin jazz track 'Esy' and 'Mambo Gallego' (heard on the film The Mambo Kings.) This one is for historians, collectors and listeners of incredible dance music.
