Cogele el Gusto

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
Perhaps an early response to the success of the Buena Vista Social Club, Wayne Gorbea and his group, Salsa Picante, were finally signed to a nationwide label to record the hot Afro-Cuban collection Cogele el Gusto, a very similar blend of traditional Cuban son and lively Latin jazz. A fixture of New York's Latin jazz scene, Gorbea is very much a traditionalist, with a call-and-response horn section of two trombones and a trumpet in the classic Tito Puente/Johnny Pacheco fashion.

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
Perhaps an early response to the success of the Buena Vista Social Club, Wayne Gorbea and his group, Salsa Picante, were finally signed to a nationwide label to record the hot Afro-Cuban collection Cogele el Gusto, a very similar blend of traditional Cuban son and lively Latin jazz. A fixture of New York's Latin jazz scene, Gorbea is very much a traditionalist, with a call-and-response horn section of two trombones and a trumpet in the classic Tito Puente/Johnny Pacheco fashion.
