This Weeks' Series...
Max Baca is a legend on the bajo sexto, a twelve string guitar-like instrument,
which customarily provides rhythm accompaniment for the button accordion,
thus creating the core of the Tex / Mex Conjunto sound. Having played with
Grammy Award winning Flaco Jimenez, he gained the experience and notariety
to record with the original Texas Tornados, Los Super Seven and even the Rolling Stones.
It was a real treat that Los TexManiacs were touring with
A Prairie Home Companion when they came to Flagstaff last May.
They didn't video tape the entire show.
But, I found this YouTube of Los TexManiacs performing Down In The Barrio...
which is what they were playing when I took this photo.
And YES, Annette and I were dancing every second...
so I'm happy to have gotten a half decent shot! :-)
