Musician. Born Edmundo Martinez Tostado in El Paso, Texas, he was a composer who blended elements of jazz, boogie and blues to create the Latin "Pachuco" sound of the 1940s-era Zoot Suit culture. He was best remembered for his hit "Pachuco Boogie." Recorded in 1948, it was the first million-selling Latin song. He played with many major bandleaders, including including Jimmy Dorsey, Charlie Barnett and Les Brown. (bio by: Richard Lombard)
