    Up Close & Personal with the Latin Tsunami of Salsa, Trumpeter " Luiz Gonzalez"

    in Music

    True Classic Salsa
    In the mid 80s, Luis González scored one of the
    most inspiring and career transforming gigs,
    touring and recording with one of his heroes,
    legendary percussionist and bandleader Ray
    Barretto (renowned by the masses for his 60s hit
    “El Watusi”). The Puerto Rican born, Milwaukee
    WI raised trumpeter was flattered when he heard
    Barretto tell a large TV audience that members
    of his large ensemble would someday become
    bandleaders and solo artists in their own right.
    A few decades later, after an extraordinary career
    working with some of his native island’s greatest
    artists (Tito Allen, Santitos Colon, Adalberto
    Santiago, Jerry Rivera) and the world-renowned
    salsa orchestras of Willie Rosario, Mulenze, Luis
    Perico Ortiz and Tommy Olivencia, González
    fulfilled Barretto’s powerful prophecy by launching
    his career as a recording artist.

    "Up Close & Personal" with multidimensional eclectic guitarist "Rob Tardik"

    in Music

    Rob Tardik — Moments


     


    Nov. 2, 2015


    Since the very early 2000s, guitarist Rob Tardik has been dazzling listeners with his exciting and often exotic mix of substantive c-jazz/R&B/rock and burning hot Latin melodies. With tunes so attractive, they are by nature riveting, seductive, uplifting, and powerful.Such is the case with his latest release Moments, another eclectic gem.


    Seizing the moment and leading off with a Latin scorcher, “Sip and Salsa,” inspired by his fiancé’s love of dance, the gifted guitarist soars from one mood to another. Examples would be track two’s sizzler jazz/rocker “Rite of Passage,” then on to the romantic R&B deliciousness of “Moments in Time” featuring the silky lead vocals of one Aiden Castillo and sweet backing harmonies of vocalists Dee and Brittani Cole, and the handsome downtempo Latin-tinged “Eros.” Definitely not applying the brakes on the project yet, Tardik treats us to a stinger with a mean hook called “Hang Time” which is co-written by fellow guitarist Steve Oliver (who is featured in some way or other throughout the album). In fact, Oliver co-produced the album with Tardik. A very cool pairing indeed.


    Tardik enjoys the contributions of other very fine notable musicians here, as well, including saxmen Will Donato and Walle Larsson, trumpeter Gabriel Mark Hasselbach, bassist Gary Grainger (of Acoustic Alchemy fame), pianist/keyboardist Nate Harasim, and a host of others who felt the groove and wanted in.


    Speaking of feeling the groove, you will definitely want to stop by and check out the blazing funkster called “Stop!,” a command you may have trouble obeying on the dance floor. Whew. Is there a fire extinguisher in the house?
