Flaco Jimenez

We recently played at the Market Square here in San Antonio and had the pleasure of talking with conjunto music legend Flaco Jimenez.  It was nice to talk with him.  What was cool is when my compadre Juan started asking him questions about his early recordings, and they started singing some of those old songs together!  You could tell Flaco was getting a kick out of reminescing about some of the other legends in conjunto like Andres Berlanga, Fred Zimmerle, and others.  It was really the highlight of the whole night.  It’s moments like these that make me appreciate what we have here in San Antonio and in our culture, hope we never forget!
