About Jerry Gonzalez

In the early 1970s, this trumpeter/percussionist apprenticed with such masters as Dizzy Gillespie and Eddie Palmieri, but he's best known for the fiery Latin-meets-Bop stylings of his Fort Apache Band. He frequently covers tunes by Monk and Wayne Shorter, wedding their complex harmonic schemes to his group's clattering, percussion-heavy attack.
