MORE ABOUT GATO MALO
"Loose, staggering, rhythm n' blues + riff-orientated jazz-punk-soul." - Weekly Dig
Gato Malo is a unique ensemble in the New England music scene. The group, often with full horn section, vibes, drums, guitar, bass and keys, is built around a revolving pool of musicians who can change styles at whim. Band leader Shaun Wolf Wortis explains he was inspired to start Gato Malo by the late Miles Davis arranger Gil Evans, whose Manhattan based big band played charted music, but with no rehearsals and a revolving membership to keep its playing fresh.
