A remarkably well selected two-disc collection, THE ESSENTIAL TITO PUENTE focuses on the Latin-music icon`s heyday, from 1949 to 1960. Endlessly enthusiastic, undeniably charming, and prodigiously talented, Puente was the king of New York City`s mambo scene in the `50s, fascinating jubilant crowds at the Palladium and other esteemed venues with his stunning skill as both a bandleader and a percussionist. Highlights of this amazingly solid set include the lively "Mambo Gozon," the frenetic "Pa` Los Rumberos," and the utterly infectious "Oye Como Va," later famously covered by Santana. All of these tunes feature boisterous horn charts and an intricate web of percussion.

Anyone with even the slightest interest in Latin music will enjoy this excellent 40-track compilation.
