The New CD, "El Viento" is done! Here are a few samples from the GATO 6 musical menu!

  1. Ojo Del GATO -A happy, bouncy Brazilian baio beat with playful horn lines and great solos on the full version!
  2. El Viento - The title track of the CD featuring a sensual, Brazilian rhythm with lovely lyrics and vocals by Suzi Stern!
  3. GATO Get It! - A blues based cha-cha featuring some blazing horn solos and a rollicking salsa interlude in the full CD version!
  4. Unchain My Heart - The classic blues/R & B tune but with that distinctly "GATO" flavor!
