    Tito Puente, the godfather of Latin jazz, celebrated 50 years in music with this sizzling CD. "Be-Bop" is launched with a duel between trumpeters Bobby Shew and Maynard Ferguson. Underrated alto saxophonist Bobby Porcelli and tenorman Mario Rivera make this version of "Stablemates" a keeper. The rarely heard "Venus De Milo" is revived with a warm tribute to composer Gerry Mulligan by baritone saxophonist Mitch Forman. Special Delivery is big-band Latin jazz at its best. ~ Ken Dryden

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (3/97, p.103) - "...a set of driving big band arrangements, abetted by guest trumpeter Maynard Ferguson. The tunes are bop standards with powerful percussion. Ferguson's aggressive, high-flying attack makes him perfect for a Puente production..."
