Wayne Gorbea

Cogele El Gusto
Import CD (Shanachie 66013), Released 1997;
"How many albums do you know where every track is a gem? Well this is such an album. A longstanding exponent of what they now call salsa dura (hard salsa), pianist Wayne took his band Salsa Picante into the studio to make 'Cogele El Gusto' after a successful two month residency at Manhattan’s González y González club. Initially released in early 1997 on his own small Wayne Go label, 'Cogele El Gusto' became an instant hit in UK Latin clubs. Added exposure via airplay on specialist radio shows, rave reviews and high placings in various disc jockey charts - together with all-important word of mouth - propelled the growing ranks of Salsa Picante converts into record stores to demand the CD. Sadly lack of supply meant they walked out disappointed. Fortunately Shanachie came to the rescue in 1998 to give 'Cogele El Gusto' wider distribution. In March 1999 Wayne and Salsa Picante completed a sellout seven date UK tour, providing further testimony of their popularity." (John Child 99/00 Catalog)
