We are so excited and honored to release this album on our label, Rancho Alegre Records, and we can’t wait for you to hear it. This is a special one for the folks who love old-style Conjunto from the 1940s and the beautiful simplicity of acordeón y bajo sexto duo. No drums. No bajo eléctrico. Just a squeezebox played by one of the masters who still uses both sets of buttons and perfectly complimented by skillful, soulful bajista JJ Barrera.
On the instrumental album full of polkas and shottices, Johnny pays tribute to his maestro, the great Camilo Cantu - El Azote de Austin. Those who know about Camilo know that he famously never recorded any music, but with this record Johnny plays all the songs “Al Estilo de Camilo.”
Johnny Degollado’s Musica Al Estilo de Camilo will be available on CD and on the Rancho Alegre mobile app on Tuesday, 2/22/22, with all digital platforms soon to follow.
