TITO AND CHARLIE - PARA LOS RUMBEROS

Tito and Charlie slaying it in the Bronx - this is fucking incredible!!!This clip has been lifted from a documentary which was broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK in the early 80s which I taped on video but managed to lose some years later.It was called "MACHITO-A LATIN JAZZ LEGACY"I believe and if anyone can point me to a DVD version of this superb programme I would be eternally grateful.

Hi BACOSO,

I am not sure if this will do, but it seems like what you were looking for, but with a different title!

Salsa, Latin Pop Music in the Cities (2001)

ASIN: 630131171X
Studio: Shanachie
Run Time: 60 minutes

Part of the review says this: The footage in this film is incredible. You have Tito Puente, the late "King of the Timbales," playing outdoors in the Bronx with keyboardist Charlie Palmieri (the brother of legendary piano whiz Eddie Palmieri), who, in another segment, conducts a Latin music class for school kids who proceed to jam on his hit "Mambo Joe."

It is available here for $14.95:

On another issue, I started a search a couple of months ago for the French Connection Soundtrack that you discuss on your Blog. I have visited every site I can find that has rare, new and used, and out of print soundtracks and no one is willing to let it go! Your Blog came up on the search but I see that I am about 8 months too late for your gracious upload to rapidshare. I know it is a real stretch, but I just have to ask… Is there any chance of you sharing these files again? I have some of his other albums and could send you some of those tracks. Thanks for appreciating Don’s music and remembering him.

Take care,
Eric

BACOSO,

I forgot to mention that the review was from Amazon.com, out of stock, and not a review on the DVD site.

Take care,
Eric

im pretty sure that clip is also in the video "From Mambo to Hip Hop: A Bronx Tale", which has other good footage too, mambo AND rare clips of the early days of hip hop in the Boogie Down Bx--recommended even if your not a hip hop fan

That is fantastic - how do the crowd manage to stand still? Great great music. Thank you so much. I've already forwarded the clip to about a dozen people.
