Master Timbalero

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Tito Puente leads a larger band than usual on Master Timbalero, a 13-piece orchestra that includes seven horns including trumpeter Ray Vega; Mario Rivera on tenor, soprano, and flute; and Bobby Porcelli on soprano, alto, and baritone and four percussionists. Throughout the colorful set, Puente shows that practically any song including the traditional Japanese melody "Sakura Sakura," Charles Mingus' "Nostalgia in Times Square," and Maurice White's "Sun Goddess" can be turned into exciting Latin jazz. A consistently stimulating and stirring effort by a true master timbalero.
