The King's Rehearsal



On April 29th 1998 I had the good fortune of being able to attend the rehearsal of the Tito Puente Orchestra for the live recording the following week at the night club Birdland in New York City. The rhythm section of this band is and always has been solid LP. The rehearsal took place at Carroll Musical, which figured significantly in the birth of LP. It was Carroll Bratman who founded this company that advanced me the money to build my first instruments in 1964.

Johnny Rodriguez, Jr.was covering bongos while José Madera was playing timbales and conducting the band.
