Product Notes

Raul y Rogelio Ramirez con Ramon 'Pacacho' son los cantantes en este disco!Jefe de Grabacion: Jorge A. DeArmas. This is the second CD from Texas rocker Will Dunlap.'El Gringo Loco'was recorded at the same time as the debut CD: 'Righteous Fool'.We just separated the international and Groove stuff from the more main stream rock and we had a whole new disc! El Gringo Loco Features Rock en Espanol merged with other international hooks and rhythms! BIO: Will's grandmother was a soprano on Broadway who worked with and knew personally the great Irving Berlin! From an early age Will learned a lot about performance from sitting at the piano and watching her sing and play classics from the 30's 40's and 50's. Will grew up also listening to his dad singing and playing folk guitars at local parties ect....In the 1970's Will was a drummer who helped build the Denver based 'Lightning' into a successful rock and roll show band.During those days 'Wild' Will was known simply as Bill Dunlap.They used to have regular jam sessions with the likes of the now internationally famous sax player Nelson Rangell.He later studied drums at Berkley College of Music in Boston and Bass & music theory at North Texas State in Denton Tx.In 1980 Will moved to Austin and got his first shot when singer Vicky Southern took his songs into the studio to record with some of Austin's best.During this period he co-wrote lots of songs with friend Mark Dorsey and first met his long term band mates: Carl Childs,Sam McBurnett and J.D. Higginbotham.Will,Carl and the boys had two Austin Bands that played all the old haunts. In the 90's he freelanced as the drummer with the J.W. Davis Jazz group that featured the late great Pat Patterson on trumpet!Latin Percussionist Jorge DeArmas joined the band in 1995 and Viola player Rob Radmer added his talents in 2001.The rest is History! From'Old Steamboat,Joe's Generic and Chicago House' in the eighties to 'Liberty Lunch,Flamingo Cantina and 'The Austin Music Hall' in the 90's Will and his various bands have done their time in the ranks.Now days Will plays every Tuesday at Waterloo Ice House 38th and Medical pkwy 7-9pm.He also has joined up with the all star 'Rocking Gospel Project' group who that were featured at the Kerrville Folk Festival in 2008! They play live every 2nd Sunday of the month at Maria's Taco-Xpress in Austin.12:00 - 2:00pm. El Gringo Loco [2000] features several Cuban singers and musicians all helping Will realize his concepts.Will Dunlap was a rock and Jazz drummer from Denver Colorado.He started writing and recording his songs when he was sixteen and in the last thirty years has developed his craft to encompass many interesting styles.Today Will and his band regularly cross the lines between rock,jazz,blues and folk. Jorge DeArmas co-produced this CD and has one of his own compositions included 'Ivon's song'.'El Gringo'was recorded in the mid.90's before the huge Latin music invasion took place with groups like Santana and Mana hitting the main stream U.S. markets. [If you don't speak Spanish don't worry, there's several songs that are in English also.] [Note from the Artist]I personally like the songs 'Capitalista' and 'Give me some slack' they rock in a way you don't hear very often these days.'Morning Dove' and 'Warm Summer Night' also have nice smooth Brazilian feels.After traveling in Spain,Mexico and Honduras and living in Austin Texas I got inspired by all the excellent World music around me.It's proven to be a good move as I've had some unexpected success with Latin artists covering my songs,[Otra Vez]was recorded and released by Haydn Vitera in 2005.
