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.
