Rezension

Längst dem „Jr.“ seines Namens entwachsen gilt der Texaner als der größte Conjunto Akkordeonist, den man derzeit hören kann. Wundervoll auch diese Live CD, in Trio Besetzung in audiophiler Qualität in Holland 1995 aufgenommen gibt es 16 Tracks aus eigener Feder, der seines berühmteren Vaters Don Santiago und ausgesuchte Covers (u.a. Marina Marina Marina). Das alles ist Tex-Mex in purster und reinster Form, das einem Teils die Augen feucht werden ob der dargebotenen Schönheit.„What a beautiful, moving and great sounding album this is. Jimenez (his friends call him Chief, according to the liner notes) plays great accordian and sings the border songs that he has revitalized, learned from his father in the old-time tradition. One can really get a sense of small-town celebrations untouched by the pervasive influence of contemporary American pop.“ (AMG)

Review

“What a beautiful, moving and great sounding album this is. Jimenez (his friends call him Chief, according to the liner notes) plays great accordian and sings the border songs that he has revitalized, learned from his father in the old-time tradition. It is so great to hear the loose interdependent textures of this music. One can really get a sense of small-town celebrations untouched by the pervasive influence of contemporary American pop. The recording is so wonderfully full that the shifting dynamics through these tracks convey the immediacy of the playing even more. Some terrific tracks are "La Nopalera" (a polka) and "Prisaonero en Tus Brazos" (a ranchero).“ (MOJO, World Music Album of the Month)
