Gilberto Santa Rosa

A Dos Tiempos De Un Tiempo
CD (Sony 80895),
1992 release. With special guests Arturo Sandoval, Victor Paz, Papo Lucca, Lito Peña, and Elías Lopés.
"This magnificent, timeless album scores an A-plus in every category: impeccable, swinging arrangements, wonderful songs, and Gilberto's suave interpretation of the Tito Rodriguez legacy. I'm amazed that it didn't get more attention and didn't 'crossover' to any extent. I'll be listening to it for a long, long time. A modern 'classic' if there ever was one." (Mark Holston 96/97 Catalog)
"Great big band sound, production, selections, arrangements and personnel. Imagine a trumpet section with Victor Paz, Arturo Sandoval and Elias Lopez. Wow! I'm glad Victor was included because he was captain and straw boss to the Tito Rodriguez band for about ten years. This recording is a tribute to Rodriguez who had a great ear, one of the best bands ever and was a producer as well. He wasn't a bad singer either (just kidding). The duo cut using studio high tech magic a là Nat and Natalie is magnificent. Gilberto, we applaud you...push the repeat button on this one." (Al Santiago 96/97 Catalog)
"This beautifully crafted tribute to Tito Rodriguez was, in my opinion, the best salsa recording of 1992. What a disgrace that the rhythm-impaired Linda Ronstadt won the Latin Grammy last year instead of Santa Rosa and his masterpiece." (George De Stefano 94/95 Catalog)
"This young man has a great voice and uses it impressively to honor Tito Rodriguez in one of the finest tributes to that artist I have ever heard. Like Rodriguez, Santa Rosa can sing a ballad or an up-tempo number equally well. It is a treat to hear these old favorites done with the kind of class that Rodriguez would have approved of." (Nancy Rodriguez 94/95 Catalog)
