The Jimi Hendrix of the accordion

Play: Steve Jordan The Return Of El Parche

So just a quick note to say I'm on vacation South of the border. Was going Marco Island and Miami, but Wilma got in the way, hence the last minute detail. So instead of a wonderful Miami Vice tribute, I leave you with my all-time favorite NorteƱo (or Conjunto, take your pick) album: Steve Jordan's The Return of El Parche.

He's been called the Jimi Hendrix of the accordion, which is an unfortunate sounding moniker, but it fits... the flamboyant fills and joy-inducing screams are too much to believe. And the eye-patch (parche) to boot... just have to listen to it to believe, claro que si.

Hasta la luego, mis amigos!

(I have a couple posts I started which I may finish and post in Mexico, but then again...)
