Eddie and Ruben Jimenez - Musica Alegre

Eddie and Ruben Jimenez, Música Alegre! Spring Fed Records is happy to present a historic and totally unexpected new recording from the first family of Conjunto music! Eddie Jimenez and Ruben Jimenez, sons of legendary conjunto founder Santiago Jimenez, Sr., play original conjunto polkas and redovas puro San Antonio style on the new CD “Música Alegre!” Eddie wrote the original tunes on this recording on his father’s two row Hohner accordion, and Ruben backs him up with a singular twelve string guitar style utilizing his own custom tunings and picking techniques. Eddie and Ruben might not have the global fame of Don Santiago’s other sons like Flaco Jimenez or Santiago Jimenez, Jr. (Eddie’s twin!) but they share the family’s unique old conjunto sensibility and make excellent music that but is all their own.
