Eddie Palmieri and Tito Puente

I stumbled on this gem hidden in the Bill Boggs TV archive.

Eddie Palmieri and Tito Puente explain and – then demonstrate – Latin jazz in 1979.

I bet you’ve never seen an Eddie Palmieri/Tito Puente duet before. (At the end Milt Hinton sneaks in off camera.)

Puerto Rican-American master musicians illuminating the art of Cuba.That’s a pretty good summary of Latin Jazz.

The video comes to a sudden end at the 11 minute mark – but at least we got those 11 minutes!
