Description
With 57 songs, and more than three hours of digitally remastered music, this set is a fitting tribute to one of the most vibrant and innovative musicians who ever lived—a true, cross-genre pioneer. From albums like Cuban Carnival (1956), Night Beat (1957), Dance Mania (1958), and Revolving Bandstand (1960; considered the most innovative jazz recording of its time with the simultaneous inclusion of two big bands in the studio), you'll hear Puente's classic Latin tracks "Mambo Beat," "Happy Cha-Cha-Cha," "Cuban Fantasy," and "Carioca," as well as his unique interpretations of pop standards like "Temptation," "The Continental," "Blue Moon," "Kiss of Fire," and "Autumn Leaves." A bonus album features his trademark 1949 hit "Ran Kan Kan" (the first hit single he recorded with RCA), along with its B-side, "Timbal y Bongo."

"Tito was responsible for creating the Latin interpretation of jazz. In the annals of jazz history, he will never be forgotten."—Tony Bennett

"The World without Music is like a world without Tito Puente. When someone creates a movement that was never thought of, you then know that he is great."—Sheila E.
