After three years of highly acclaimed sold-out performances, Charlotte’s Jazz Arts Initiative’s (JAI) monthly series—The Jazz Room @ The Stage Door Theater – presents a special tribute to the "King of Latin Jazz" TITO PUENTE, featuring Tim Singh and the QC Latin Jazz Orchestra. The Stage Door Theater is part of Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, at the corner of 5th and College in Uptown Charlotte.

"Tito Puente, donned the 'King of Latin Jazz,' was a pioneering force in Latin music, known for fusing styles and putting a big-band spin on traditional Latin music. In 1948, Puente formed a band that would become known as the Tito Puente Orchestra. A decade later, he released his best-selling album, Dance Mania (1958). His most notable songs include "Babarabatiri," "Ran Kan Kan" and "Oye Como Va."  Puente received numerous awards for his work, including five Grammy Awards."
