Gato Loco is an instant party — a wild, instrumental explosion of horns and beats harnessed into an avant-garde “psycho-mambo” group with a dizzying array of influences, pulling from jazz, rock, and latin sounds and grooves. The whole New York-based crew of Stefan Zeniuk (tenor & bass saxes), Tim Vaughn (trombone), Joe Exley (tuba), Lilly Maase (guitars), Ari Folman-Cohen (bass), Kevin Garcia (drums), and Rich Stein (percussion) crammed into the studio at Serious Business Music to blow it out and chat with Maia about how their memorable sound got to where it is now.
