Led by long time Puente band members John Rodriguez, Jose Madera and also CEO Stew Jackson, the Latin Giants of Jazz offer the best of the Afro-Cuban and Latin American traditions with a tremendous drive and swinging perfection that is pleasing to both listener and dancer. The orchestra has recorded two CD’s; the fist offering is entitled “ The Latin Giants Play the Music of the Palladium…Tito Lives” and the second CD, is aptly named “Trip to Mamboland”. These albums have been at the top of radio playlists throught the world. Both recordings are very representative of the different styles of musical performances that the band is able to present to the general public. It is the heart and soul of the Latin Big Band style that the Giants have dedicated themselves to preserve and it is a task that the orchestra takes very seriously. To put it plain and simple, it is the most authentic band playing this style of music that exists in the industry today.
Having toured the world for the last 35 plus years with the late and great Tito Puente, these wonderful all-star musicians are well known and have been accepted virtually all over the world. Unlike other music idioms, all of the works performed by the Latin Giants of Jazz are danceable and thereby serve to create an environment that is very exciting and enjoyable to all, regardless of ethnicity, nationality or age.
