Tito Puente Sr. served in the Navy for three years during World War II after being drafted in 1942. He was discharged with a Presidential Commendation for serving in nine battles. The GI Bill allowed him to study music at Juilliard School of Music, where he completed a formal education in conducting, orchestration and theory. In 1969, he received the key to the City of New York from former Mayor John Lindsay. In 1992 he was inducted into the National Congressional Record, and in 1993 he received the Smithsonian Medal.
Puente guest-starred as himself in a famous two-part episode of The Simpsons.
During the 1950s, Puente was at the height of his popularity, and helped to bring Afro-Cuban and Caribbean sounds, like mambo, son, and cha-cha-cha, to mainstream audiences (he was so successful playing popular Afro-Cuban rhythms that many people mistakenly identify him as Cuban). Dance Mania, possibly Puente's most well known album was released in 1958. Later, he moved into more diverse sounds, including pop music, bossa nova and others, eventually settling down with a fusion of Afro-Cuban and Latin jazz genres that became known as "salsa" (a term that he disliked). In 1979 Puente won the first of five Grammy Awards for the albums A Tribute to Benny Morй, On Broadway, Mambo Diablo, and Goza Mi Timbal. In 1990, Puente was awarded the "James Smithson Bicentennial Medal." He was also awarded a Grammy at the first Latin Grammy Awards, winning Best Traditional Tropical Album for Mambo Birdland. He was posthumously awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000. After a heart attack following a show in Puerto Rico, Puente had heart surgery in New York City, from which he never recovered. He died on May 31, 2000, just a few months after shooting for the music video Calle 54, in which Puente was wearing an all-white outfit with his band.
Tito Puente's name is often mentioned in a television production called "La Epoca,", a film about the Palladium era in New York, Afro-Cuban music and rhythms, Mambo and Salsa as dances and music and much more. The film discusses many of Tito Puente's as well as Arsenio Rodriguez's contributions, and features interviews with some of the musicians Puente recorded with such as Alfonso "El Panameno" Joseph, Luis Mangual, Julian Lianos and others.
When Tito Puente passed away in the year 2000, at the age of 77, he was known to younger generations as the author of the Santana-covered classic rock/R&B radio staple "Oye Como Va" and also for appearing on a seasonending cliffhanger episode of animated pop culture touchstone "The Simpsons". But prior to that, the timbales master-bandleader-composer
enjoyed life as the King of Mambo. And "Dance Mania", his best-selling album - and his first devoted wholly to dance music - shows why. Ouente hat already been leading a big band for more than a decade before going into a New York City studio to record "Dance Mania". Hipsters had long known of the Purto Rican-American's danceable synthesis of Afro-Cuban
rhythms, jazz principles, and the musical traditions of his ancestry. Now the rest of the world was beginning to catch on.
"Dance Mania" also marked the recorded debut of Puente Orchestra vocalist Santitod Colуn, whose engaging voice could fire up or seduce an audience. "El Cayuco," the opening track, urbanely slithers through the uptown streets
with a tightly orchestrated syncopation propelled by Puente's hypnotic timbales work and spot-on unified horn blasts and lines. Puente brings out his tuned percussion skills on a couple of other standout and stylistically diverse
tracks: the instrumental "Hong Kong Mambo" has his slick marimba playing at its fun, cosmopolitan core, while on the regal "Estoy Siempre Junto A Ti" he frames the entire piece with his fluid, often sustained vibraphone flows. (YK)
Dance Mania is probably Puente's best-known album, appearing as it does in several reissue forms and having inspired subsequent More Dance Mania and Dance Mania '80s titles. Part of the reason is that it's his first major album of dance music, in stereo, on RCA. As with most of the rest of his work for the label, it more than lives up to expectations. Seven of its 12 tracks are Puente's own, and, of the rest, two are from legendary conga star Francisco Aguabella. There isn't a weak track in the bunch, and most feature singing and instrumental solos. Dance Mania is a cohesive collection of mambo, guaguanco, guaracha, and son montuno, plus some equally lively cha cha cha and bolero tracks. While it probably does not deserve all of its reputation (unless one gives similar credit to some other Puente albums), it is essential. ~ Tony Wilds, All Music Guide
