Pa' los Treseros

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Evan C. Gutierrez
Five-time Grammy Award-winning Nelson Gonzalez is the undisputed authority on the Cuban tres guitar. The New York-based musician has performed with the industry's most luminous talent, and appeared on some of the most important releases in the Latin music world, including Cachao's Master Sessions, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, which won him two of his five Grammys. Musicians all over the States and Latin America seek out his unique skill on this instrument, from which son montuno, rhumba, guajira, and many other Cuban genres gain their unique flavor.

All Music Guide - Evan C. Gutierrez
Five-time Grammy Award-winning Nelson Gonzalez is the undisputed authority on the Cuban tres guitar. The New York-based musician has performed with the industry's most luminous talent, and appeared on some of the most important releases in the Latin music world, including Cachao's Master Sessions, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, which won him two of his five Grammys. Musicians all over the States and Latin America seek out his unique skill on this instrument, from which son montuno, rhumba, guajira, and many other Cuban genres gain their unique flavor. On his debut disc as a bandleader, Gonzalez seems to set out to demonstrate the versatility of the tres Cubano, and also perhaps its importance. With selections in styles as varied as yambu, bomba, and descarga, Gonzalez proves to be a master of all the idioms that make up the Afro-Carribean genre. Given the contributions from musicians including Oscar Hernandez, Jerry Gonzalez & the Fort Apache Band, and Bobby Allende, to name just a few, it seems that Gonzalez has stocked up favors and good connections over his years in the studio with New York's finest salseros and Latin jazzers. Warm, clear production and consistently stellar performances make Pa' los Treseros a magical record, and Gonzalez this generation's definitive tresero.
