Tremendo Rumbon.....

On Sept. 20th, 2000...the Tito Puente Orchestra paid tribute to their leader and inspiration Maestro Tito Puente at the South Street Seaport. The seaport has been no stranger to some fantastic music over the years and this day was no different; in fact it was exceptional. Tito had passed away not long before this concert and the band members, arguably one of the best ensembles of Latin musicians ever assembled, came to play. The addition of Arturo Sandoval and Eddie Palmieri on select tunes just pushed the music over the top. Alfie Alvarado's footage is great and I've decided to put up as many as eight videos from the concert. This is the first and will give you an idea of the quality of music you can expect from the rest. Que Viva La Musica, Que Viva Tito Puente!
