"Gottschalk has a Gershwin-like capacity to absorb the essence of a colourful idiom, not merely its colour, into an individual style; and in his use of cakewalk rhythms, he comes astonishingly near a kind of concert jazz in mid-Romantic idiom. Bamboula is one such; the equally popular Le bananier is no less brilliant. The Souvenir de Porto Rico is an attempt to construct on the familiar 'patrol' device, using a tune he associates with the gibaTos, the white peasants of Puerto Rico. Ojos Criollos is a delightful, catchy dance; and in The banjo, we hear not only a clever translation of banjo figuration into piano terms but a working of De Camptown Races (Stephen Foster's tune had first been published in 1850, five years previously)" - Gramophone review
