Born in Spanish Harlem to parents from Puerto Rico, Tito Puente would eventually become a legendary musician of Latin-jazz, and dance-oriented mambo compositions. Over his 50 year career Puente released or appeared on a vast catalog of albums (notably Dance Mania in 1958), on television (The Cosby Show and The Simpsons) and in films (The Mambo Kings). His talent and skill allowed him to explore numerous musical styles within Latin-jazz including mambo, son cubano, cha-cha-cha, and bossa nova. He won numerous Grammy awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award, which was given posthumously in 2003.

Latin jazz is jazz with Latin American rhythms. Although musicians continually expand its parameters, the term Latin jazz is generally understood to have a more specific meaning than simply jazz from Latin America. A more precise term might be Afro-Latin jazz, as the jazz sub-genre typically employs rhythms that either have a direct analog in Africa, or exhibit an African influence. The two main categories of Latin jazz are: Afro-Cuban jazz—jazz rhythmically based on clave, often with a rhythm section employing ostinato patterns from Cuban popular dance music; and Afro-Brazilian jazz—includes bossa nova and jazz samba.

Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev) has been producing radio in many genres since 1971 when he was 12. At 19 in 1980, Bev became the youngest person to produce a radio show for public radio. He co-hosted The Jazz Show with Garret Gega in the early 80s, a four hour a week mix classic jazz and comedy. Bev also worked for WBGO, Jazz 88 in Newark, NJ and produced documentaries for WNYC New York Public Radio on jazz legends including Louis Armstrong, Wynton Marsalis, Count Basie, Woody Herman, Cab Calloway, and Lionel Hampton.

Bev also produces, directs, writes and voices half of The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, which is has been highest rated radio show on Cult Radio A-Go-Go! for many weeks. Joe Bev's other weekly radio show, The Jazz-O-Rama Hour debuted at #2.

22 weeks ago, the veteran voice actor added his third hour for Cult Radio, called The Joe Bev Experience which airs right after The Jazz-O-Rama Hour.
