"In my opinion the Mexico Canta Con El Mariachi Sol De Mexico cd by Jose Hernandez and Mariachi Sol de Mexico is one of their best cd's to date. For more than just the sounds, the style they play with, and for the arrangement of the music.
In the song Mi Tierra Jalisciense, Sol plays a perfect son jalisciense. This style of song is usually a 12/8 rhythmical pattern with sesquealtera and contra tiempos in the melody and manicos. The sound is delivered perfectly throw an even master mix. The melodic line is clear to hear in every song with the base not to far behind. With all this the voice is put on top because of course the words make the song. All other styles are present in the cd including ballads, huapangos, rancheras, and original songs.
The arrangements within this disc are amazing. You hear the Sol style everywhere. Every group has there own way of playing the same songs and Sol makes there sound heard. Jose is an amazing arranger and you will hear it in the Popurris. The transitions are excellent and flow smoothly from one song to another. As far as listening to something new was eighth track, the song Cantar de un Guitarron. This song features the guitarron in all its glory. Played by Pedro Hernandez one of the best guitarron players in the world this song is a testament that the guitarron can play a melody line. This song will prove to be different from any other mariachi song you have ever heard. The disc is also a good by because it incorporates a jazzy, new age fell to it.
Jose Hernandez just doesn't play old Mexico music, but tries to incorporate modern day styling in the voice that works perfect for his group. For example, in the second track Presumido, Jose uses his ability of voice to make the song more easy listening and more pleasurable to the ear. In some of the trumpet fills and some of the solo voice lines you can fell the jazzy technique put into play. I enjoy it extremely because it shows how diverse you can make a mariachi group sound with all the same traditional interments.
I strongly suggest that people buy this disc. You will listen to this cd and be at ease with the sound that is produced. If nothing else tell a friend about this cd because it is worth hearing at least once."
