@drummerworld : He has a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame, right in front of the Chinese Theater. Two colleges, SUNY at Old Westbury and Hunter College, have bestowed the King with honorary doctorates for his work in music and his help to young artists through his Tito Puente Scholarship Fund.

@allmusic : By virtue of his warm, flamboyant stage manner, longevity, constant touring, and appearances in the mass media, Tito Puente is probably the most beloved symbol of Latin jazz.

@last.fm : Tito later learned to play a number of instruments, including the piano, saxophone, vibraphone, and timbales (paired high-pitched drums). After an apprenticeship in the historic Machito Orchestra, he was drafted and served in the navy during World War II.
