Salgado News & Zoo 39

On the heels of releasing his best CD yet, Soul Shot (Alligator), Curtis Salgado will take a brief tour break to deal with a tumor found in his lung. Alligator Records reports that Salgado will undergo surgery in Portland, Ore., on July 18.
“Salgado will be hospitalized for a period of four to six days,” according to the Alligator press release, “and will require a recovery time of up to four weeks. Salgado and his doctors anticipate a complete recovery.” Cancelled tour dates are expected to be made up in the fall.
