Tito Rodriguez

Multi-instrumentalist Tito Rodriguez played an important role in New York's thriving Latin dance scene of the 1950s and '60s. His expressive playing was an important factor in the success of his brother Johnny Rodriguez's band. A native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Rodriguez displayed his talents at a very young age. Accomplished on a variety of instruments, he could interpret popular tunes while still in his childhood. He secured his first contract as a musician at the age of 13. Although he made his first trip to the United States as a member of Cuarteto Caney, his tenure with the band was short-lived. After coming late to an important gig, he was fired by bandleader Noro Morales. He quickly found employment with the band led by Enrique Madriguera. Following his brother to New York in 1939, Rodriguez accepted a position with the Johnny Rodriguez Orchestra. Although he was tempted by offers to join Xavier Cugart's group, he remained faithful to his brother's group. While in New York, he sharpened his skills as a student of Professor Moe Goldenberg. In 1952, he received a mention of honor award from the Century Conservatory of Music of New York. During the early rock era, Rodriguez played for a while with Leroy Holmes' orchestra and produced albums by El Cuarteto Los Hispanos, Los Montemar, and Teddy Trinidad. In the mid-'60s, Rodriguez returned to Puerto Rico. In addition to performing frequently in San Juan hotels, he hosted popular television show El Show de Tito Rodriguez. Rodriguez died from leukemia on February 28, 1972. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Hearing Tito's music is so amazing! His boleros are totally wonderful.
His music is timeless.
Salsa is my life
Wow! back in the day. I just turned seven Oh! In my mind I'm still as young as I was back then and I
can still cut a step. Anybody remember the Palladium, the Cheetah, El Hippo Campo, the Tritons, the
Manhattan Center, the Hunts Point Palace, and a whole bunch of other places. I remember TP and Eddie
at a lot of those places, and also Charlie P, La Voz, Willie Bobo and Mongo playing at La Caravana and
so many other places. Kudos! Thanks for the memories.

When I was a student at Lincoln elementary he lived in a house in front and used to practice all day in the balcony, just with a guitar. Saw him in NYC, and San Juan, danced to his music, Also, playing golf with Sammy Davis. He had it all, talent, looks, charm. His sister Pura was my school mate and Johnny talked to me about his music and act many times. RIP.
One of the best of best performers in our island ever.

En mi epoca de mozo, El Maestro Tito Rodriguez era un Az en las canciones Romanticas adjunto al Cubano Roberto Ledesma. estos dos Titanes fueron lo mejor de lo mejor, tambien Felipe Pirela y Felipe Rodriguez, El anacobero Daniel Santos, que el Senor Dios los tengas en gloria, Amen
hasta ahora no dejo de admirar a Tito Rodriguez por su Naturalidad en todos sus generos, nadie ha logrado igualarlo. Es un Simbolo Latino para el Mundo
Su voz Es inconfundibl e e inolvidable SiEmpre vive en nuestros corazones

I bet TIto Puente was "Relieved" when Mr. (Tito) "RODRIGUEZ" stopped making music; because "He Knew" he couldn't even stand next to him, as far as Talent went !!!
This is one of many names who influenced my child hood. No matter where you were physically and mentally it brought joy,remembra n c e .

I''m Polish-Germa n - R u s s i a n descent. But I am positive I have some Latino in me. I have always enjoyed this music genre. Makes me want to hit the dance floor and do some fancy footwork!

I am not Puertorican, but Mexican-Amer i c a n from California, and I knew of Tito when we used to go the Hollywood Paladium back in the late 60's to hear Latin music and dance. Most of the bands were from New York, and one of them was Tito. I have the most fantastic album, Back Home In Puerto Rico, which has some of the most awsome songs. To this day, HE is my favorito!!
His songs remind me of Sunday afternoons, growing up in the Bronx. My dad would play Tito's boleros and have his Don Q con coka cola and dance with my mom. I grew to love Tito too. His voice was like butter!
