Got Mambo?

by Tito Puente Jr Y Su Orquesta

Wow, this one is hot, folks. Tito Puente Jr.'s new release "Got Salsa" has sparks flying everywhere. And with guests like Ricky Melendez, Kevin Ceballo, Bobby Cruz (with a tip-of-the-hat to Puente Sr. on "Ay Cariño"), José Arroro and Hansel & Raul too. Some of this stuff is simply terrific salsa, and a good portion is pure capital "M" Mambo done old school and with a lot of muscle. Listen to "Jr.s Mambo" This guy just gets it. Puente Jr. has been active releasing singles that border on salsa-mambo-disco and house. This release, however, puts him on another level, and he is owed props, big time. This one is a Must-Have and a big DJ Alert.
Genre: Latin: Mambo

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tito Puente, Jr. – BIO

The comparison is inevitable. How could it be otherwise? Tito Puente Jr. carries his father with him – imprinted on his physical being and locked in his soul. It’s in his looks, his joy, and his music.

Tito, Jr. is on a passionate mission. The younger Puente is determined to nurture the musical legacy left by his father. He refuses to let his father become a distant memory. “He was just too vibrant, too exciting. There was magic in the music my father made. It made people happy all over the world.”

He has found captive audiences who echo his passion. Crowds lured to a venue by the father are returning to see the son -- and to once again participate in the high voltage celebration that takes place on stage.

Tito Puente, Jr. has become an audience favorite in casinos, performing arts centers, symphony halls and jazz festivals worldwide, performing more than 300 shows over the past 5 years.

His 2004 album, “In My Father’s Shoes” featured the classic Puente titles and was spun into a BET Jazz television special of the same name.

He was seen in a tribute to his father’s music on NBC’s two hour special--“The Apollo at 70: A Hot Night in Harlem.” He has also appeared on the ABC soap opera hit “One Life to Live” in performance with his big band.

Symphony appearances include Dallas, San Antonio, Colorado, South Bend, and upcoming performances with the Palm Desert Symphony and the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marvin Hamlisch.

Tito, Jr.’s new CD release, “Got Mambo?” is a mixture of the old and the new as he takes a musical departure into some powerful new music he can truly call his own. Guest artists Bobby Cruz and Hansel & Raul help make this a coming of age project for Puente, Jr. and the album is receiving heavy praise from Tropical and Latin Jazz critics alike.

Tito Jr. reveres the magnificent, lasting impact his father had on our musical lives. “People who don’t know anything about Latin music know my father and people always, always smile when they say my father’s name,” he confides. “That is a very special gift I have been given.”

Tito, Jr. lives in South Florida and has two children, Miranda and Antonio.

Magnetic Mambo Music
Put on your dancing shoes because the newest album by TITO PUENTE JR Y SU ORQUESTRA titled “GOT MAMBO?” will have you moving in no time to the vibrant beats. This album is brimming with vitality as Puente pulls all the right stops with his delectable tunes of Mambo style. The music is magnetic as each song has pulsating energy that will dazzle you with its bright instrumentation and amazing vocals. The energy on, “AGUA LIMPIA TODO,” is overflowing as the vivacious horn section complements the charismatic vocals. Let the syncopated beats take you away on, “JR’S MAMBO,” as the instruments are well balanced and richly textured. The song, “BRISA AZUL,” is a jazzy number that shimmers with layers of horns and percussion. If you’re a fan of big band music with Latin flair, then “GOT MAMBO?” is a must have addition to your collection of music.
