Tito's Live Birdland Recording
August 21, 1999
, New York City

0793_002.jpgOn August 21, 1999 Tito Puente recorded his second album at New York City's Birdland for the RMM record label. 

I was thrilled to witness this historic event and I would like to share with you the images from this recording session  as well as a recording of the rehearsal.

For the recording, José Madera was playing the LP Galaxy® Giovanni Series™ Premium Wood Congas with the Comfort Curve Rims.  Johnny "Dandy" Rodriguez, Jr. was using LP Valje® Armando Peraza Series™Wood Bongo with a natural skin head on the small half of the drum and synthetic on the larger half.
