Honored with a star on Palm Spring's Walk of Fame, Tosti forged a career spanning several decades and styles, from classical to jazz and rhythm and blues. He is best remembered for his big band-style compositions like the hit 'Pachuco Boogie'. Recorded in 1948, it was the first million-selling Latin song.
