I was visiting a friend in Mobile, Alabama. Gato's Che Corazon was playing. I asked who it was that was blowing the saxophone. My friend could not believe that I was not hip to Gato.
I now will buy everything Gato puts out. He is excellent. He is classic. He has not been given the credit that he is due. In fact, should i become a millionaire while he is still living, I will make sure that he is placed on a pedestal. Working in the music industry is not easy, and he has been doing it for 40 years now.
I am now a Gato Fan. I want nothing more right now on the personal side of my life than to meet him, and discuss his talent. I would also like to see him play at the "Blue Note" for New Years Eve. Do you know how special that would be ? Listen to Auld Lang, and tell me that you would not want to be at the "Blue Note" on that historical night.
