Los Super Seven

by Los Super Seven

CD

Overview

Combining elements from Los Lobos, the Texas Tornados, and Texas country, Los Super Seven finds common ground in the music of the Lone Star State. Full of Mexican-American traditional tunes, it includes a cover of Woody Guthrie's "Plane Wreck at Los Gatos (Deportee)" sung by Joe Ely. Ely, along with Doug Sahm, Freddy Fender, David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas, Rick Trevino and Flaco Jimenez have formed a sort of Tex-Mex supergroup brought together by their love for this romantic, yet spicy music. But the music is seriously presented here and produced with love by Steve Berlin with the hopes that it gets beyond the Hispanic community and snares some newer audiences, Los Super Seven is worthy of a listen. Who would have thought world music could be so close to your own back door?

This collaboration is truly heaven inspired! I was not familiar with many of these artists and then I stumbled on a broadcast of Austin City Limits that featured Los Super Seven and I've been hooked ever since. Ruben Ramos' vocals are particularly wonderful. Enjoy!

If you have ever seen Los Lobos live in concert, than you know of their fondness for, and aptitude at playing traditional Mexican music. Here is an album that highlights that particular area of their immense talent, and also highlights other important artists of the genre. I don't speak spanish, but after listening to these songs a few times through, I've found myself singing along!
