Our Jazz in the Americas motif continues as the Jazz for Young People® series honors master musician, composer, arranger, and “King of the Timbales” Tito Puente. Join JLCO bassist Carlos Henriquez and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis in an enthusiastic exploration of Puente’s legacy. From big band to bossa nova, Puente, a five-time GRAMMY® Award winner and Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, covered an extensive range of music over the course of his career. Spanning over fifty years, Puente created one of the most important hybridizations in jazz. These hour-long, interactive concerts spark curiosity and imagination through vivid conversation and lively performances that will have your entire family dancing in their seats.
