El Mero, Mero de San Antonio

El Mero, Mero de San Antonio

Santiago Jiménez Jr. is the youngest in a family of musical giants. An ambassador for traditional conjunto or Tex-Mex music, Jiménez Jr. has devoted his life to music and to carrying on the accordion style of his father and pioneer of the genre, Santiago Jiménez Sr. The best of Jimenez’s playing is presented on this 22-track collection, with selections from his earlier two Arhoolie releases as well as previously unreleased instrumental tracks. This is music for the dance halls, the bars, and the ballrooms. With the accordion at the forefront, the band moves its audience across the floor, circling counter-clockwise to the polkas, rancheras, cumbias, and boleros of southern Texas. Liner notes include a biography of the artist.
