Album Notes
About the CD:
Tito Rodriguez, Jr’s Transición, is one of the most exceptional, electrifying Salsa albums ever released and destined to become a classic. Made for dancers and listeners alike, Transición was produced and arranged by Pablo Chino Nunez. Vocalist, Gilberto Santa Rosa, a five-time Grammy winner is featured on the song Volver. You will find yourself singing these songs all day and wanting to play this album over and over again.

Transición is Tito Rodriguez, Jr's visual and auditory tribute to the diverse philosophies of his father, "El Involvidable", Tito Rodriguez and Japanese mother, Takeko, who passed down their passion and love of Latin music to him. In the cover photo for Transición, Tito’s drum sticks form the illusion of fans. Fans are cherished possessions in both the Japanese and Hispanic cultures.

His recordings, in the classic tradition of his father, are stamped with Tito’s personal signature. Tito’s sophisticated way with lyrics; melody and Latin rhythm have become a worldwide sensation. In sustaining this musical legacy, his parents remain a source of inspiration.

Tito Rodríguez, Jr is one of the leading Timbales artists in Tropical Music today. Tito’s signature sound is inspired by the traditional big bands of the past with a contemporary twist. Prodigiously gifted as an arranger, composer, producer and bandleader, Tito found his Latin music voice through the Timbales.

Born in New York City, Tito was admitted to Berklee College of Music at the age of 19. His first album, Curious? for TR Records, a label owned by his father, the legendary Puerto Rican singer and bandleader, Tito Rodríguez, debuted in 1975. Tito’s discography includes Eclipse and The Big 3 Palladium Orchestra: Live at the Blue Note.

Tito’s performances around the globe have delighted audiences at The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, The Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, Tanglewood, Istanbul Jazz Festival, Tempo Latino, Jazz at Vienne, Burgenhausen Jazz Festival, El Dia National de la Salsa, Concord Jazz Festival, The Barbican Centre, Pori Jazz Festival and Ravinia Jazz Festival to critical revues.

Plans for annual recordings are in the works, as Tito continues to expand his repertoire to include a label for talented artists.
