In a new series, Choice Cuts, Jonathan Patrick talks with artists - both local and international - about their favorite records.

I've been captivated by Gonzalez since the very first moment I witnessed him play. And I've yet to be anything but dazzled by the trumpeter's offerings, both live and on tape.
