Tex Mex Sunday
It's Tex Mex Sunday here on CCM courtesy of Los Texmaniacs and their album Americana Groove from 2015 on the Line in the Sand label.
A conjunto band set up by Max Baca in Alburquerque in 1997 and a band very much influenced by The Texas Tornados.
Americano Groove is their 6th album and enjoys guest appearances from the likes of Alejandro Escovedo, Kevin Fowler,Joe Ely and Rick Trevino.
From the tax dodgers:
Star-studded 2015 studio recording from multi-Grammy winner Max Baca y Los Texmaniacs. Max is known to be the premier bajo sexto player today - he is to the bajo sexto what Flaco Jimenez is to accordion in the roots music scene. This album is evenly shared with English-language/country and rock and Spanish-language/Tex Mex tinged repertoire. It also features guest appearances by some very special artists - Alejandro Escovedo, Kevin Fowler, Joe Ely, Rick Trevino, Augie Meyers, and David Hidalgo. The album was produced by Steve Berlin.
