Arturo "Sauce" Gonzalez
Arturo "Sauce" Gonzalez
Followers of the hot and heavy San Antonio, TX, music scene could most likely not imagine life without this talented pianist, who is best known as the de facto leader of the West Side Horns. Although in demand as a horn section for a variety of artists as well as working on its own, this band traveled most far and wide when it collaborated with the late Doug Sahm, a Texas legend who grew up with several members of the Horns, featuring them frequently on recordings during this artist's prolific career in the studios. In addition, he hired the entire horn section to back him up when economics of a tour permitted. Born Arturo Gonzalez and nicknamed for his habit of dousing his food with the various fire-breathing salsas of San Antonio, Gonzalez first played professionally with the country singer Bobby Bare while stationed in California with the army in the '60s. The pianist then donned sunglasses for a stint with Sunny and the Sunglows, getting to record his first song on the piano, entitled "Golly Gee" perhaps out of sheer appreciation for the opportunity. He also recorded the song "Talk to Me" with this group, which made the top chart position on Dick Clark's American Bandstand in 1963. In the late '60s, Gonzalez played with Little Joe y la Familia. Blues became a driving influence for Gonzalez in the following decade, but he continued working with rhythm and blues and doo wop groups such as the Bits of Soul and the Crystals, the latter band remembered fondly by anyone with a radio for "The Do Run Run." Later he toured with the Coasters throughout the United States and the Caribbean until lured away by Sahm in 1974. The ensuing decades have found Gonzalez and company continually active on the San Antonio scene, to the point where taxi drivers will figure out where the band is playing in case a fare asks where the happening music is in town. Other members of the West Side Horns include Al Gomez on trumpet, Rocky Morales on tenor saxophone, Spot Barnett on alto saxophone, Mike Zeal on bass, Moses Vasquez on drums, and the diminutive Little Roger on vocals. ~ Eugene Chadbourne, All Music Guide
Paquito D'Rivera
Paquito D'Rivera
Paquito D'Rivera (born 4 June 1948 in Havana, Cuba) is a Cuban alto saxophonist, clarinetist and soprano saxophonist. Paquito was a child prodigy. He started learning music at the age of 5 with his father Tito Rivera, a well-known classical saxophonist and conductor in Cuba. D'Rivera grew up in Cuba, playing both saxophone and clarinet and performing with the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra at a young age. When he was seven, he became the youngest artist ever to endorse a musical instrument, when he signed on with the music company Selmer. By 1980, D'Rivera was dissatisfied about the constraints placed on his music in Cuba for many years, and had always longed to come to the United States. In early 1981, while on tour in Spain, he sought asylum with the American Embassy, and left his homeland, wife and child behind in search of a better life with a promise to get them out. Upon his arrival in the United States, D'Rivera found help from many people for him and his family. His mother Maura and his sister Rosario had left Cuba in 1968 and had become US citizens. Many notables who reached out to help Paquito were Dizzy Gillespie, David Amram, Mario Bauza and Bruce Lundvall, who gave him first solo recording date. D'Rivera quickly earned respect among American jazz musicians and was introduced to the jazz scene at some of the most prestigious clubs and concert halls in New York. He became something of a phenomenon after the release of his first two solo albums, Paquito Blowin (June 1981) and Mariel (July 1982). Throughout his career in the United States, D'Rivera's albums have received reviews from critics and have hit the top of the jazz charts. His albums have shown a progression that demonstrates his extraordinary abilities in bebop, classical and Latin/Caribbean music. D'Rivera's expertise transcends musical genres as he is the only artist to ever have won Grammy Awards in both Classical and Latin Jazz categories Paquito D'Rivera is a 9 time Grammy award winner and a leader in today's Latin music scene.
