LATIN TINGE: TITO PUENTE AND NATI CANO

For National Hispanic Heritage Month, we're celebrating the "Latin tinge" in American music. We'll hear a classic interview with the late Nuyorican bandleader and King of the Timbales, Tito Puente, who tells us about the roots of tropical Latin jazz in Spanish Harlem. Then, it's off to the West Coast, where we visit the Los Angeles club of the late, great bandleader Nati Cano. As leader of Mariachi Los Camperos, Nati Cano was a central figure in the Mexican Mariachi scene of East LA. All this, plus music from Dizzy Gillespie, Lalo Guerrero, Los Lobos, Buena Vista Social Club, Freddy Fender, Professor Longhair and more.

TIMEKEEPERS: THE ART OF DRUMMING WITH JM VAN EATON, ZIGABOO MODELISTE, TITO PUENTE, BEN RILEY AND SHANNON POWELL

This week on American Routes, we're keeping the beat with drummers and rhythm makers across the genres: everyone from Sun Records' Rockabilly drummer JM Van Eaton, to jazz percussionist Ben Riley, who had to keep up with the unconventional rhythms of Thelonious Monk. In between, we listen live in-studio to New Orleans' King of Treme, Shannon Powell, whose music takes us from the church to the streets and beyond. The funky backbone of The Meters, Joseph, "Ziggy" Modeliste tells us what it really means to hit a groove, and we'll play an encore presentation of our interview with New York City percussionist, Tito Puente, El Rey de los Timbales.

Of course you'll hear Armstrong, Gershwin, Ellington, Dylan, and Hendrix along with Aretha, Patsy Cline, Jerry Lee Lewis and Tito Puente. How about Dewey Balfa, Clifton Chenier, Professor Longhair, and Flaco Jimenez. By the way January 8 is Elvis' birthday!

Time to ring in a new century by examining the past one. For the big Y2K, we'll reel in the years with our favorite artists' favorite songs of the millennium. Travel through the past thousand years of music with personal requests from many of our party guests including: Randy Newman, B.B.
