  8. Lalo Guerrero - “Los Chucos Suaves” 1949 - Jukebox Jam 1042 A - Jazzman Records


    Artist Eduardo “Lalo” Guerrero (December 24, 1916 – March 17, 2005):
    Guerrero is known as the Father of the Chicano Music and all-time greatest Pachuco Bopper ever. Guerrero wrote songs for El Trio los Panchos, Lola Beltran and many other famous artists. His Pachuco music of the 1940s and 1950s provided the sound track to louis Valdez’ late 70s play and movie “Zoot Suit.” Mr. Guerrero also wrote songs about Cesar Chavez, farm workers and the braceros. His corridos told stories of the struggles and triumphs of Mexican-American heroes from Cesar Chavez to Ruben Salazar.



    Good tune, very reminiscent of the early Chicano soul sound.
