Flaco Jimenez & Max Baca - Legends & Legacies (CD)

In the world of accordion-driven Tejano conjunto music, Grammy award winners Flaco Jimenez and Max Baca are at once pillars of the past and forgers of the future. LEGENDS AND LEGACIES spotlights these larger-than-life artists, each an inheritor of a musical legacy from his father and grandfather, and each a dynamic force of musical genius. This recording captures the essential sounds of conjunto tradition with Flaco's 3-row button accordion and Max's deep-pitched bajo sexto. Electric bass and drum kit round out the ensemble.
