TITO PUENTE picture
Tito Puente (1923-2000) was a bandleader, percussionist, composer, and arranger from New York, New York.

Born Ernesto Antonio Puente, Jr., on April 20, 1923, in New York, New York, Puente was a musical pioneer for mixing musical styles with Latin sounds and for his experiments in fusing latin music with jazz. The son of Puerto Rican immigrants, Puente grew up in New York City's Spanish Harlem and took piano lessons as a child and then studied percussion. He became a professional musician at age 13. Tito Puente later learned to play a number of instruments, including the piano, saxophone, vibraphone, and timbales (paired high-pitched drums). After an apprenticeship in the historic Machito Orchestra, he was drafted and served in the navy during World War II.

Once he returned to New York in 1945, Puente used money from the G.I. Bill to study at the famed Juilliard School of Music.
