Album Notes
Tito Gato originally formed in 1993 under the name "Wild Rice" as a jazz quartet with a female vocalist. Every Sunday night they would go to a club called "Just Jazz" to play during jam sessions. This eventually caught the attention of the owner, and they were asked to play happy hour every Friday night. During this time they added a trumpet player and another female vocalist.

Daniel arrived at the current instrumentation in 1997 with the addition of Latin percussion. It was decided that the band performed best as a mostly instrumental band. As Wild Rice, they released a well-reviewed album entitled "Tell Me More About Spain" in 2008.

In 2014 it was decided that the band needed a new direction and the name "Tito Gato" was decided upon. When brainstorming band names, Carla, Daniel's wife, jokingly said "Tito Gato," but Daniel liked it. Tito happened to be the name of their new kitten and ended up becoming the band's mascot.

Most of the pieces performed by Tito Gato are Daniel's original compositions. Daniel draws inspiration from the music of Brazil, Venezuela, Cuba, and Puerto Rico, among other tropical countries. Daniel's love of Latin music has long been an inspiration for putting together Tito Gato, and he aspires to compose and arrange music that he calls "a celebration of life."
