Jazz Caliente celebrates Jazz April
We've been celebrating Jazz April (Jazz Appreciation Month + International Jazz Day April 30) by posting birthday remembrances of the legendary jazz artists who were born this month.
Latin Jazz innovators, percussionists and bandleaders are well-represented in April too:
Tito Puente, pictured above, was born on April 20, 1923. Others include Mongo Santamaria 4/7/17, Candido Camero 4/22/21, and Ray Barretto 4/29/29.
Here they all are for your listening and dancing pleasure:
Listen for the Latin Jazz masters on Jazz Caliente, Thursdays at 2pm on KPLU's Mid Day Jazz!
