San Antonio's favorite son, Flaco Jimenez took the legacy of his father, legendary accordionist Santiago Jimenez, and added spectacular, jazzy runs to the bouncy conjunto beat. This release combines two great LPs from 1979 and 1985.
Though little known in Mexico, Jiménez is the conjunto figure who has captured a non-Latino audience, through his work with pop and rock figures from Doug Sahm to Ry Cooder and his membership in the Texas Tornados. Son of accordion pioneer Santiago Jiménez Sr., Jiménez is perhaps the most fiery and brilliant button accordion player on record. His dazzling instrumental lines are balanced by understated vocals, and always backed by fine bands. This CD includes his Grammy winning LP, plus selections from the earlier "El Sonido de San Antonio," perhaps his single greatest album. Here is a masterpiece of stripped-down, Texas barroom music. --Elijah Wald
