Don Santiago Jimenez - Viva Seguin

CAT. #: 7023


Price: $15.00

CD 7023


San Antonio born Santiago Jiménez was one of the pioneer accordionists who is not only remembered for his many polkas, including "Viva Seguin" and "La Piedrera," but also for his songs like "Morena, Morenita," "Margarita" and "Ay Te Dejo En San Antonio." By combining his lilting accordion music with duet vocals, Santiago helped firmly establish the sound of conjunto and Norteno music in San Antonio.

REVIEW

“Featuring recordings from the heyday of Don Santiago Jimenez’s popularity, the very meaty collection Viva Seguin offers up 27 highly seasoned hits from the 1947-51 period when this masterful accordion player and vocalist was arguably the top dog on the highly competitive San Antonio conjunto dance scene.”
