More Info:

This recording presents the essence of authentic old school conjunto music, straight out of the West Side. Lorenzo Martinez and Ramon "Rabbit" Sanchez are two master musicians who have played at innovative edge of conjunto for more than half a century. This is puro conjunto. Lorenzo and Rabbit play a much wider and virtuosic range of music than just polkitas. They boast a rare and beautiful repertoire that is no longer being played by contemporary conjunto musicians. Conjunto has continually evolved to incorporate other styles like boleros even as some distinct older styles, rhythms, and songs have faded. This older music includes mazurkas, schottisches, waltzes, and redovas, all of which Lorenzo and Rabbit have continued to play.
