El Fidelero del Valleby José Antonio Moreno
Accompanied by Amado Bando on bajo sexto and Mark Rubin on tolaloche (string bass), Moreno mostly sticks to violin on this nearly all-instrumental set, although he also picks up mandolin, tamboura, and accordion from time to time. It's an unassuming set of traditional Tejano music as it was heard along the border in the late 19th century, distinguished from contemporary conjunto by the emphasis upon the fiddle and the lack of accordion. Except for one number, that is: "El Corrido de Gregorio Cortez," the only track to feature accordion and vocals (by both Moreno and Bando).
