Synopsis

Amazon.com
The world's number one trad conjunto accordionist, Flaco Jimenez, delivers another gold standard of hardcore conjunto stomps and country-tinged polkas. New singer Nunie Rubio delivers the right mix of pride and pain in the rousing "Siempre Quiero Estar Contigo" and the heartbreak bolero "Recuerda." All throughout Jimenez is at the top of his game, pulling new moods and textures out of his accordion with awesome facility. The lively "Soulmates" is a textbook sample on melding rockabilly spirit with old-world conjunto--piping hot accordion runs over thumping percussion funky enough to raise the dead. Jimenez throws in perky cumbias ("Te Amare") and rockabilly-country fusion ("Said and Done") for good measure. Perfect border-town party music. --Ramiro Burr

CD Reviews

The world's best accordionist--Great Artist!!
09/18/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Flaco is the world's best accordist and he shows it in this CD...with his versatility of music and songs he played in it. "Recuerda" is a beautiful heartbreaking love song, then "Soulmates" an Instrumental is just out of this world, of course the country songs are great. Every one should have this CD! It is one of his best! And has something for everybody's taste of music. And he projects the great personality and charisma and very much talent that he has and the love of music that is in his blood. And so does Nunie Rubio, his vocalist, together they are simply fantastic!!!! There is no question why Flaco has won 5 grammys and numerous other awards Can hardly wait for his new upcoming CD."
World's no. 1 accordion man

"God bless Flaco Jimenez. He may not sell millions or be a poster boy for the Latino movement, but the man has class, integrity and conviction in his playing. He has been, as the experienced music reporter Ramiro Burr pointed out, "The world's best ambassador' for conjunto music." As Mr. Burr explains in his marvelous book "Billboard Guide to Tejano and regional Mexican Music," on Billboard Books, "Jimenez was universally recognized as leading exponent of authentic South Texas conjunto. While there are many masters of the accordion along the Texas-Mexican border, none have toured Europe, Japan and other points overseas or recorded with as many pop, rock and country artists as Jimenez. By all accounts, Jimenez was an international icon for the accordion-fueled conjunto genre." Thank you Mr. Burr and thank you Mr. Jimenez."
Flaco and Nunie have set a new standard for Tejano Music.

"Flaco Jimenez has released the best C.D of his career. Nunie Rubio's lead vocals set a new and exciting tempo on this release. Nunies performance in the song De Bolon Pin Pon and Recuerda reminds of the passion that music can deliver. Said and Done has the best compilation of songs from country, tejano, and conjunto tones that has been released to date. If you don't already own this, you're spanish music collection is not complete. SAMMY MORALES"
