Heard on NPR this morning

I had no idea that "El Rey del Timbal" Tito Puente saw battle in the navy at Midway and Guadalcanal, studied at Juilliard, and also played the whole range of instruments from piano to clarinet to saxophone.

He even got Oscar the Grouch to dance, although he'll probably be best remembered for his appearance on the Simpsons.
