Tito Puente's Golden Latin Jazz All Stars "Live at the Village Gate" is nothing less than the ultimate Latin Jazz experience. Almost everything is perfect about this album. First, the band is perfect. The musicians live up to the hype of being the Golden Latin Jazz All Stars. Just about everybody who is the greatest at their instrument within the genre is present: Dave Valentin, Mongo Santamaria, Giovanni Hidalgo, Paquito D'Rivera and so the list goes on. Second, the setlist is perfect. 'Afro Blue,' 'Oye Como Va' and 'Milestones' are some of the highlights. Third, the improvisation is unbelievable. In particular, the drumming is other worldly. While Mongo, Giovanni, Ignacio and Tito rip it up on 'Skin Jam,' the jaw-dropping percussion is threaded throughout the recording. As expressive and abstract as the improvisation is, the group is just as tight. The transitions are always clean and the Golden Latin Jazz All Stars can start and stop on a dime. Fourth, the energy is through the roof. This recording truly captures the enthusiasm between a great band and an appreciative audience. A recording with this energy could not have been possible in the studio. For proof of this, listen to the mediocre results of the corresponding studio album, "In Session." This is the gem of any Latin Jazz collection. So what's not perfect about this CD? The price; it seems that this jewel is currently out-of-print and going for exorbitant prices through Amazon's marketplace sellers. If you can afford it, this the ultimate live journey into Latin Jazz.

Live at the Village gate is a tremendous album, one that deserves a listen. Once you get it, I suggest quickly skipping to #4, Afro Blue, not because the preceding tracks lack merit, but because Afro Blue is almost perfect. Sun Ra once said somethign like, "Whenever you play, play with intensity." Well, here it is. This track is the definition of intense. Listen to the rhythm section and their polyrhythms, layering 3, 4 and 5 time all over each other. Oye Como Va is a fun track, but once Milestones is heard, watch out. The Latin Jazz All-Stars earn their title with this track. This is a great album, one filled with fire and a cohesion of purpose that is often found to be lacking in many group efforts.

I recently moved from New Jersey to Florida and many of my Jazz CD's were misplaced. Seaching through Amazon's Jazz CD list I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I was able to order a replacement CD of Tito Puente's "Golden Latin Jazz All Stars (LIve At The Village Gate). This CD is not sold in most stores in the US any longer and was a one of a kind special performance by many of the very best of Latin Jazz artists. I was fortunate enough to see all of these artists live in concert at one time or another (a few of these perfomers have since past away, Mongo, Tito, etc.). So, if you want to get the closest thing to hearing an exceptional live performance by some of the best artists Latin Jazz have, buy this CD and if you want quick and honest service in finding diffult to find CD's, use Amazon's Service.

If you're not a Tito Puente fan, then you will be after listening to this CD. This is a rare and hard to find, so with that said; order, listen and enjoy.
