Andy GonzalezAndy Gonzales Interview by Zaccai Curtis about new Cd 'Entre Colega'

Blurb: Who did you want to feature on this record?

I was working a lot with Ricky Salas on Timabals and he's a great singer. Nephew of Victor Pas and we started playing together at FB lounge. The more we played the more we hung out, I remember I played with Victor for years. ‘Mostro’ got in touch with Jerry on Facebook and I started hearing about him.

Ralph IrizarryIn Conversation with Master Timbalero, Ralph Irizarry

Ralph Irizarry: This is not one of those stories about a famous musician who said, I started when I was three or four years old, like a lot of guys who had parents who were in the music business. Nobody in my family was in the music industry, but my father used to lend money to people, so I remember when I was about eight years old, my father lent money to a guy who was a drug-addict, 25 dollars or something like that, but the guy didn’t have the money to pay him back, so he offered him a set of timbales in exchange for the money. My father thought it was better to get something than nothing, so he accepted them (Laughs).
