Though his first love was dancing, after he tore a tendon he began to play timbales in East Harlem’s local clubs. He got his first big break with Machito and his Afro-Cubans, absorbing Machito’s exciting fusion of Cuban rhythms and big band jazz. With Machito he got to play solos, standing with the timbales in front of the orchestra, the first time the instrument was played standing rather than sitting down. Drafted into the Army, Puente served between 1942 and 1945 and then, with the help of the GI Bill, attended Julliard, where he studied composition, orchestration, and piano.
