Born in Spanish Harlem to parents from Puerto Rico, Tito Puente would eventually become a legendary musician of Latin-jazz, and dance-oriented mambo compositions. Over his 50 year career Puente released or appeared on a vast catalog of albums (notably Dance Mania in 1958), on television (The Cosby Show and The Simpsons) and in films (The Mambo Kings). His talent and skill allowed him to explore numerous musical styles within Latin-jazz including mambo, son cubano, cha-cha-cha, and bossa nova. He won numerous Grammy awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award, which was given posthumously in 2003.
