Flaco Jiménez & Max Baca - Beer Drinking Polka
In the world of accordion-driven Tejano conjunto music, GRAMMY award-winners Flaco Jiménez and Max Baca are at once pillars of the past and forgers of the future. Legends and Legacies spotlights these larger-than-life artists, each an inheritor of a musical legacy from his father and grandfather, and each a dynamic force of musical genius. This recording captures the essential sounds of conjunto tradition with Flaco’s three-row button accordion and Max’s deep-pitched bajo sexto. Electric bass and drum kit round out the ensemble.
