LOS FABULOCOS

DOS

2011-01-31

As one can guess "Dos" is the sophomore effort to Los Fabulocos 2008 highly acclaimed self titled release. On Dos Los Fabulocos seem more conformal mixing the sounds of southern California with large amounts of Latin rhythms to make the sound they call Cali-Mex. This CD has the rock sensibility and sounds of Los Lobos on their disc "Will The Wolf Survive" and the Mexican rhythms found on the best of the Texas Tornados releases. Jesus Cuevas vocals alternate between English and Spanish but always hits the mark. The other distinctive element this band has is the excellent guitar work from blues man Kid Ramos who headed the Fabulous Thunderbirds as well as several terrific solo releases from the late 1990's and early 2000's. As this talented group of musicians continues to grow on can only wonder what Tres will bring. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
