My interest in jazz began in high school when I was quickly drawn to Gato's music. His fiery tenor sax was totally distinct & truly one of the most defining expressions of what we call Latin jazz. I recommend that everyone tune in to the Carnaval show on Radio Bilingue tonight (Sunday) at 7pm (91.5fm in Fresno or log in at www.radiobilingue.org). Tonight's host Jean Hays will talk about Gato's legacy & probably play some of his music. I will be on the air later this month 4/24/16 & will play at least an hour's worth of his music as well.
