Tito Puente

The Complete 78s Volume 4 (2-CD Set)
CD (Fania Codigo 507105), Released 2009; Re-Issued 2010
Editor's Pick:
Some of the greatest music of the 20th century; with Volume 4 though, the run dries up, taking us into the lp era. The music at its best is extraordinary, a melding of the deep harmonic and orchestral tradition of New York with the rhythmic sophistication of the Afro-Cuban world. Included are Puente’s version of standards, including "Los Tamalitos de Olga" and "Pare Cochero," along with "My Funny Valentine" and "Invitation." Puente took care of business; the precision of the music is astounding. There’s a lot of instrumental music here; Puente dropped having a lead singer during this period. Unfortunately, there are no dates or personnel listings on the package, which is extraordinary given the importance of the music, though I guess it’s not surprising given the general disregard with which this last version Fania has treated its reissues.
Highly Recommended. (Peter Watrous, 2010-09-25)
