The final performance of Latin jazz composer Tito Puente.

As a boy growing up in Spanish Harlem Tito Puente was influenced by the drumming of Gene Krupa.

After his hopes of pursuing a dance career were dashed due to an serious ankle injury he became the drummer with Machito's band.

Tito's popularity peaked during the 1950s as he gained acceptance with mainstream audiences, introducing Afro-Cuban music to the masses.

Puente received the first of five Grammy Awards in 1979 for his albums "A Tribute to Benny More", "Mambo Diablo", "On Broadway", and "Goza Mi Timbal."
