Vince Lateano (2002)
Vince was born in Sacramento, California, and was introduced to music by a family of musicians who lived close to him. He began playing the trumpet in the fourth grade, but switched to drums in the ninth grade and started playing pro. He joined Cal Tjader's band in 1978, until Tjader died in 1982. Vince drummed on six of Tjader's albums.
