Salsa Meets Jazz

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
For this particular Tito Puente recording, his exciting three-horn, three-percussion Latin jazz octet which includes longtime saxophone soloist Mario Rivera is joined by alto great Phil Woods on three of the eight selections, including Thelonious Monk's "Pannonica" and "Repetition." Such songs as "Corner Pocket," "Carioca" and Dizzy Gillespie's "Con Alma" sound perfectly natural in this Afro-Cuban jazz setting, and Puente well featured on vibes and timbales is responsible for two originals and seven of the nine arrangements. The music is danceable, adventurous and quite fun.
