Overview

Puente Caliente, a two disc set, features Tito Puente's hottest Concord Picante CDs: Un Poco Loco and Sensacion. Disc one includes such favorites as its title track and"Swinging Shepherd Blues (Goes Latin)"; four of his priceless originals ("El Timbalon," "Chang," "Machito Forever," "Alluya"); and a supercharged, swinging version of "Killer Joe." The octet is backed by a full orchestra that features outstanding performances by members of its percussion section including a rare appearance by John Santos, who has become one of Latin jazz's most respected percussionists. Originally released in 1987, Un Poco Loco ranks among Puente's best releases. Disc two features stellar performances from Tito Puente's octet performing jazz standards that will take you on a journey across stylistic boundaries. Sensacion features an excellent rendition of Chick Corea's "Spain" and Thelonious Monk's "'Round Midnight." Joining the artist as a special guest is Terry Gibbs on "Jordu" and "Guajira for Cal," the latter of which showcases their sonic senses on Puente's other main instrument -- the vibraphone. Previously released in 1986, these outstanding performances by the maestro on timbales, vibes, and percussion, featuring excellent piano solos from Sonny Bravo, make Sensacion a vital part of Tito Puente's inherent appeal and success.
