Here’s Tito Puente rocking the Bronx with A Maria Cervantes on the vibraphone in 1945. And here he is again with the same song at the Montreal Jazz Festival almost 40 years later in 1983.

Watch more performances that we love: Dizzy Gillespie’s Salt Peanuts, NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concerts: No BS! Brass Band, and NPR Music at the Make Music New York festival.
