Guisando (Doing A Job)” capitalizes to the utmost the gangster image of The Hustler, where in which the main photograph shows Willie partaking in a game of pool with the musicians of his orchestra. Even though in this photograph they appear scaling the safe of a bank, the gangster image – reinforced later on in the album covers of Izzy Sanabria and Ron Levine for La Gran Fuga (The Big Break) and Lo Mato – were limited in the visual aspect, as part of a strategy to promote the band of musician youths determined to revolutionize the New York scene after the decline of the mambo and the fall from popularity of the big orchestras of Machito, Tito Puente and Tito Rodríguez.
