“The Music in this album represents The Heart of Mexico in all its facets…With all its color and sensitivity! The Bright Mariachi, with its highly emotional and fun-loving sound…The romantic and sentimental music of the Trio, whose soft strumming guitars speak of love and serenades in the night: as well as the gaiety and spontaneity of the piquant rhythm of the Jarocho groups…All this music, in its most sincere form, unadulterated, honest and clear as the azure skies under which it was born, gives us the most accurate insight into…The Heart of Mexico.” (Back cover)
