Joe Conzo with special consultant Tito Puente
"A noted Latin music specialist in his own right, Joe Conzo is also probably the world's foremost expert on the music and artistry of his good friend, Tito Puente. He has served as a musical consultant on several projects, notably two documentaries done for PBS, "Latin Tinge" in 1976 and "Salsa" in 1979. He has produced several recordings for Tito Puente and others, including Puente's 1977 album "Top Percussion" which is noted by several of our reviewers as a favorite recording. "I'm a lover of good Afro-Cuban music, Latin jazz and the big band sound," says Joe. "I especially admire those musicians who laid it down in both the recording studio and in person and who helped educate me about my musical roots and culture. My list includes Machito, Bauza, Arsenio, Cachao, Arcaño, Beny Moré, the two Titos (Puente and Rodriguez), Miguelito Valdes and many others. Young musicians today should listen to some of these artists for inspiration and to get ideas for experimentation. They should try to keep the music's authenticity intact and not listen to record producers who would have them do otherwise.""
