Spiritually, Tito was on a love kick, while musically, he drew on everything from his early days singing on street corners in Spanish Harlem to contemporary "modern soul" and freaked-out acid funk. "Motown was big at the time, so there was a lot of influence," he remembers. "There was a lot of doo-wop mixed with Motown. See, I always say that the type of music that I do is Latin-souljazz. It's a fusion, because we used a lot of jazz riffs with the horns and then we [put in] the R&B with the Latin rhythm." Tito is a prime example of the soul of Spanish Harlem, not only a breeding ground for Salsa but also solid R & B and that special sound that only Tito could deliver, Latin Soul.
