Tito Puente Jr. and Orchestra in Tucson

Oct 10 2009 8:00 pm

Celebrate the high-voltage, Afro-Caribbean sounds that made Tito Puente “El Rey,” – the undisputed King of Latin music. Hot horn arrangements soar over irresistible, hard-driving, Latin polyrhythms as Tito Puente, Jr. celebrates his father’s legacy of mambo, merengue, salsa and cha-cha-cha classics and introduces a few new favorites with a contemporary flair. Tito Puente influenced generations of musicians with the conga- and timbale-driven tempos and spicy charm of his arrangements. His animated performance style lives on in his son's infectious showmanship, as he and his orchestra transport the audience to a festive evening in the tropics.
