Gaucho has been going strong now for 10 years! This CD will feature 12 new original tunes and songs that have been written by Gaucho Bandleader Dave Ricketts and performed by Gaucho for the past 2 years in the SF/Bay Area, Baltimore, Md and NYC. Recently a Ricketts composition, "Waiting" from Gaucho's last CD, "Pearl", was put to use on the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art website, https://www.metmuseum.org/mymet/sign-up, Gaucho won SFweekly's Best Jazz and Blues Band Award in 2009 and furthermore plays at least 4 if not 8 gigs each week in the SF/BayArea.

The Band is very excited about sharing this new work with it's fans and reaching out to new listeners and places on the globe. That being said this work also features a fresh young voice in the Jazz and Pop world, Georgia English! (http://www.georgiaenglishmusic.com/) At only 19 years of age English is becoming a musical success. She is from San Francisco where she grew up studying music with Dave Ricketts of Gaucho and is now attending Berkelee School of Music in Boston. She recently won the New England Song Writer's Competition in December 2011 and is a featured composer herself in Berkelee's Perfect Pitch Concert Series. She also has recently released her own CD of original compositions entitled "In the Fog". At age 19, Georgia has enjoyed success, and she sounds amazing with Gaucho!

The CD will also feature two of San Francisco's Traditional and Hot Jazz Legends, Clint Baker, drums, trombone and clarinet, Marty Eggers on tuba and Leon Oakley on cornet. 

We in Gaucho feel strongly that this will be our best work yet!!!

Listed above is  what we plan to do. How we plan to pull it off is the same way we have always done things, meaning, by playing our music for as many people as possible, every day. This has made us and others, we like to think, very happy. With your help we can afford to release our new CD and also, get much needed press and PR to help us reach a larger audience. Thank you very much for your time today and thank you again for anything you can contribute to our cause, it is greatly appreciated!!!
