Editorial Reviews

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.

Tito Puente
"Dance Mania" (Legacy Edition)
(Sony Legacy, 2009)
-----------------------------------------
A deluxe 2-CD reissue of the best-known album from the legendary nuyoriquen bandleader Tito Puente... Originally released in 1958, "Dance Mania" was a sizzling set that helped solidify the popularity of the mambo craze, and made Tito Puente a household name. Fifty-plus years later and it still sounds great, as does the 1960 follow-up, "Dance Mania, v.2," which is included here as well. Both original albums were short by today's standards -- about forty minutes long -- and Sony Legacy (bless their little hearts) takes the opportunity to stuff an extra twenty-one tracks on, including outtakes and alternates, as well as a bunch of other tunes from the same era. It's classic mambo and Latin Jazz -- dense musical ideas set to addictive rhythms, with Puente's jaw-dropping percussion throughout. All killer, no filler!

At the top of his Palladium days, the first record featuring singer Santos Colon, the sound of his big band... this superb collection is Puente's dancing music greatest album! Many tracks were prepared for this record and the selected ones reveal the genius of the masters, or how they select their material. Recorded circa 1957-58 Dance Mania quickly became a classical. It has endured the passage of time and it continues to be a best seller, in various re-issues. The only other Puente record at this level is Night Beat, on jazz, and perhaps some in the Ensemble Latin Jazz series.

This is true big band sound salsa, before the name salsa became popular. Originally released in 1958, You can go back and feel how great this music was back then and still feel the how great it still is today. This tells you this is a treasure chest of great music. Just enjoy and dance as if he is playing at the good old days at the Palladium Dance night,in NYC. The recordings allow you to hear clearly every instrument that was played and precise harmony of the full orchestra. Be carefull playing this while driving in the car, you will be force to pull over and dance a few cuts.

One of Tito's tightest and most soulful albums, with sharp-sounding horn charts and funky rhythms galore. Recording with the full technical expertise of the RCA studios behind him, Puente's late '50s albums had much richer, better defined sound than competitors on smaller, independent labels, and the brass tones that distort into distorted shrillness on other albums are smooth and clear here. Great material, and a ton of tight session players who were the cream of the crop in the latin dance scene. Highly recommended!

Originally recorded in 1957, this is Tito Puente's signature album which marked the debut of a very young Santos Colon as his lead singer -- an association that continued for many years. You'll listen to this classis album many times over. Absolutely great dance music: mambos, cha-chas and big band jazz. This album's a must-have for any Tito Puente fan.

Tito Puente! Percussive passion! I saw "el Rey" perform live in the mid 1980's. He was captivating! His music is varied but always just what you want if you love Latin music. Get this CD and you'll be shaking your shoulders and tapping on the tips of your toes!

A must for anyone looking for a good sample of some classic mambos, jazz suites, and one bolero from Tito.

Had heard of this guy Tito Puentes years ago & his wonderful music and having
lheard it for the first time, I was impressed how motivating it was, to actually get up
and do a lil' cha cha, rumba, mambo & etc. was so much fun! I'm latin & the latina
blood came to the surface immediately, recalling all those great dance moves was
and will be my exercise music! Loved it!
All I can add is ................. FANTABULOUS!
