Tito Puente Masterworks Live!!! The Manhattan School Of Music Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra Conducted By Bobby Sanabria
CD (Jazzheads 1184), Released 2011;
Editor's Pick:
Best of 2011 Award Winner
Coming off of the success of the Grammy nominated "Kenya Revisited Live!!!," multi-Grammy nominee Bobby Sanabria returns conducting the Manhattan School Of Music Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra with an exciting live concert tribute to maestro Tito Puente featuring incredible live re-workings of "El Rey"'s greatest large scale Afro-Cuban/Latin jazz masterworks. Bobby not only conducts but also performs on vibes, drums, and timbales on several cuts. from in your face straight ahead big band swing to jazz with a mambo beat. It's Puente's music like you've never heard it before, reinterpreted with new twists and turns by Sanabria and his young fire breathing dragons in all of its majesty. As with "Kenya Revisited Live!!!," proceeds of the sale of each cd go to the MSM Scholarship Fund.
